English Premier League football has tried to distance itself from the Black Lives Matter ‘political movement’, after the sports body dedicated matches to the far-left organization by taking the knee and wearing jerseys who replaced the names of the players with ‘Black Lives Matter’.
The Premier League, the highest level of the English football league system, made the announcement on Tuesday, allegedly after the British branch of the movement, BLMUK, posted messages about “abolition” from its official Twitter account. police, anti-capitalist remarks and ‘FREE PALESTINE’ messages using the anti-Semitic doggie whistle that Israel ‘gagged’ the “right to criticize Zionism and Israel’s colonial prosecutions” in British politics.
But the far-left lawless movement has been clear in its efforts to tear down law and order since May 2020, with calls from US Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors to “fund” suspected racist police services. since 2016. It has been publicly known that since at least 2015, Cullors had been mentored by former Communist-supporter national terrorist Eric Mann, who worked with Bill Ayers, the former leader of radical left-wing activist Weather Underground.
Last night the Premier League said in a statement that while supporting “the eradication of racial prejudice wherever it exists” and that all in the profession “recognize the importance of the message that black lives matter”, the league added, âWe do not support any organization or political movement, nor any group that calls for violence or condones illegal activity.
ð – “A powerful image to show the social conscience of football.”
Players on both sides put on one knee before kick-off to show their support for the #Black lives matter movement.

âWe are aware of the risk posed by groups who seek to hijack popular causes and campaigns to promote their own political views.
âThese actions are utterly unwelcome and rejected by the Premier League and all other professional football bodies, and they underline the importance of our sport coming together to declare a very clear position against prejudice. We want our message to be positive and to recognize that football has the power to bring people together. “
Former football players turned sports experts Jamie Redknapp and Patrice Evra were seen without their Black Lives Matter badges during coverage of Manchester United’s game against Brighton on Tuesday following recent anti-Israel tweets. Another expert, Matt Le Tissier, claimed he only wore the badge because Sky Sports bosses asked him to. Le Tissier added that he “could not support” the BLM’s calls to demolish capitalism or fund the police, condemning them as “far left ideology”.
Let’s just look at capitalism, which #BlackLivesMatterUK want to abolish.
It does NOT favor white people. It is not the enemy of the black community.
Capitalism allows free enterprise and entrepreneurship.
If other communities can thrive under capitalism, so can we!

The football establishment has seen a quick reverse ferret – a British media term for a quick reversal of stance or policy – on its BLM stance, after encouraging its players to show support for the far-left group. Players from all 20 Premier League clubs knelt in the first games of the season after his restart following the coronavirus-induced break.
All 20 clubs also replaced player names on the back of their shirts with âBlack Lives Matterâ for the first 12 games, with media reporting that the BLM badge was to appear on the shirts for the remainder of the season.
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling has called the knee a “giant leap” in British football. “It shows that we are going in the right direction,” Sterling said in mid-June, saying the virtue signage in stadiums was “organic.”
Team manager Pep Guardiola said âWhites should apologize for the way we have treated black people for 400 years. I am ashamed of what we have done to black people all over the world.
This is the second major reversal in favor of the far left Black Lives Matter, after Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer, who knelt for BLM, refrained from endorsing the political “move” to the following BLMUK’s anti-Semitic Twitter posts. The leftist leader cited the movement’s support for police funding while distancing itself from British television.
