On December 5, at The New Den, the indignant Millwall Football Club fans were booing. At any other game, the game’s authorities and the media wouldn’t have noticed or cared about this voicing of opinion by the fans. But this was different. How dare White men oppose the kneeling for blacks? How dare White men voice an opinion?
Association Football has long been the traditional sport of Britain’s White working class and most of this continent. Generations of men go to warm the terraces of their local teams on a Saturday afternoon. People bond with total strangers who wear the same colours and the finer points of the game are discussed over and over in hundreds of homes across the British Isles. Men even stopped a war to have a kick about in No Man’s Land once.
But things have changed rapidly. The game is now an excuse to contain and control the tribal energy of young men. To funnel their feelings of brotherhood and kinship down an avenue of endless meaninglessness, season after season.
The racial lines are blurred heavily. The English national team, known for its greats such as Bobby Moore, Banks, Paul Gascoigne and Shearer is now made up by the likes of Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho with Wan Bissaka, Panzo and Tariq Lamptey coming through our youth system.
And now we have rainbow flags and rainbow laces and rainbow armbands for the captains. There are adverts all around the grounds with rainbows on them telling White men that they simply must comply and accept the full force of LGBT into their football club. We have stories coming from Manchester about fans watched on CCTV to see if they say something from a list of banned words. These fans are identified and barred from watching any more games.
And then, when sports fans couldn’t enter the grounds to voice an opinion, the race issue was ramped up further. It wasn’t enough to keep pushing ‘Kick Racism out of Football’ while millionaire non-Whites run around the pitch. No, the powers that be decided more was needed. So now, before every game in England and Scotland, players kneel for black people. And because the grounds were empty, not one voice of discontent was heard.
But very suddenly, this has all changed. At Millwall, Colchester and West Ham, when fans got the first sight in months of their players lining up to start the game, they booed. En masse, they booed. Even with very limited numbers of fans allowed in the grounds, the noise was heard all over the United Kingdom. And this noise seems to have resonated with the working class Whites; it calls to something dormant within, something primal. The support for this has been very noticeable. And the panic within the media has been more noticeable still.
A few days later, Englishman Jamie Vardy scores a good solo effort against Sheffield United and runs off to celebrate. He runs over to the corner flag, leaps into the air and two footed tackles the flag with such venom that it shatters at the point of impact. The rainbow flag falls to the ground. And so do the Twitter tears.
The media has exploded into frenzy. Ex-footballer Gary Lineker is rolled out, predictably siding against the fans that booed, comments are being turned off on highlight videos and there is a desperate need to make all this seem very negative from the establishment.
Jamie Vardy has since sent the remains of the flag to a Leicester City LGBT fan group to ease tensions and prove to this minority of fans that they’re more important than anyone else to the club. I’m sure Vardy did this of his own free will of course. The fans at Millwall are being investigated by the FA according to the Daily Mail and the police, the same police that turned a blind eye to thousands of girls being raped by foreign men, they are meeting with ‘Kick It Out’ to discuss what actions they are going to take.
Dion Dublin, most notable for being the diversity hire on Homes Under the Hammer, is quoted in the Mail as saying ‘To me, they are racist. They don’t agree with taking the knee, which means they’re racist.’
So that settles it, in the eyes of a black man, this isn’t simply about Marxism or politics in the game or even George Floyd. This whole thing is about humiliating White people by making them kneel before blacks as they raise their fists. And if you have any problem with that, well that makes you racist apparently.
Trevor Sinclair, former footballer, convicted racist and drunk driver, also chimed in with his thoughts on Twitter, so did Stan Collymore, the man who famously hit his girlfriend in a bar in Paris. White fans will begin to see a pattern here. Blacks seem to be fine dishing it out.
So where does this leave fans that agree with booing? Where does it leave fans that enjoyed seeing Jamie Vardy destroy the fragile emotions of the LGBT crowd? Where does it leave the White working class male, who is starting to see he is a target because of his opinions?
It leaves them realising that football has been a lie, a waste of all that time and effort he put in. He sees the game has changed into something he realises he doesn’t recognise anymore.
He starts to see more and more things about football that he doesn’t like but he cannot put a finger on it. He will be noticing differences. He will notice that blacks are upset by the booing but Whites are the ones cheering it.
And the media reaction to all this only amplifies these realisations. But for these lads, losing their love for ‘the beautiful game’ could be a painful experience. They’ve invested a lot of money and passion into this thing that has just spat them out and now they may feel lost and alone. We need to let them know, there’s more of us than they realise. Source
