These people you call scum, do you think they would be booing if the players wore 'Kick Racism Out Of Football' t-shirts (for example) instead of getting on a knee to support BLM? No, because they support the eradication of racism. But they don't support a divisive, hate fuelled organisation/political movement, hence the boos.
Now Millwall, like other clubs, have decided they will no longer take the knee. Does this mean you're going to try and start a campaign to get these clubs kicked out of the league for being racist? Or are football clubs waking up, realising supporting BLM is doing more harm than good, and instead will do their own initiatives in the community to tackle racism...
What utter rubbish. For one thing, not only are Millwall going to keep taking a knee, but QPR (who had stopped doing it) are going to as well when they play Millwall.
Let’s talk frankly, we are all fully aware of what the views of these morons booing would be on issues of race and equality and it is plain silly to pretend otherwise. If you want to pretend that’s up for debate then it’s pointless to engage with you.
Equally, they knew exactly the message they were sending with their booing - and who it was aimed at.
Millwall the club have reacted superbly to this to be fair - they’re stepping up their anti-discrimination messaging directly because of this, and good on them for it.
This tripe about “it’s a political movement they’re booing” is for me from the same wheelhouse as “some of my best friends are black”. Ask yourself if you really, truly believe that?
These idiots are cut from the same cloth as the braindead Argyle fans who chant songs about the Taliban at Luton away. I’m glad to see the Colchester chairman agrees and is telling these people they aren’t welcome at the ground anymore.
Points on whether taking a knee is a pointless PR exercise that doesn’t actually help much and serves only for clubs to show a public face of inclusivity are fair enough, I don’t disagree with that to a certain extent. But let’s not be wilfully naive about the message these knuckledraggers were trying to send.
Spot on. Anyone who thinks these Neanderthals are capable of sending out a nuanced political message are self-delusional. I’ve been to Millwall five times, and I know these are absolute thickies who deserve no credibility whatsoever.
