USA… ELI5 why there are only two “religions” during elections and in media?
Then everything is like “we vs them” or rather “our sponsors good, their bad” :confused:

So the Co-founder of BLM is by her own words a “trained Marxist”:

Cleary the endgame (product) of the identity politics or “division” of the last 5+ years.

Training requires organisation, organisation requires (someone elses) cash, if you are to be a good Marxist… :rofl:

So who is doling out the moo-la and who be doing the training?

Or maybe they went to https://www.marxist.com/marxist-university.htm

The worm turns

Sky Sports pundits Jamie Redknapp and Patrice Evra DITCH badges for Black Lives Matter as football captains consider making public statement over links to organisation and Premier League distances themselves following group’s extreme statements

Sky Sports pundits Jamie Redknapp and Patrice Evra ditched their Black Lives Matter badges last night as football captains considered making a statement on the movement which the Premier League has distanced itself from.

Redknapp and Evra along with host Kelly Cates and commentator Gary Neville were not wearing the badges during Sky’s coverage of Brighton v Manchester United, during which players knelt before kickoff and had ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their sleeves.

Since the league resumed, guests appearing on Sky Sports have worn the badges with the campaign phrase after all 20 clubs agreed to emblazon ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their shirts for the first round of games following the Covid-19 break.

Players and officials have also ‘taken the knee’ before matches, a symbol which was adopted by American athletes to protest police brutality and racism in 2016 and which has been used by Black Lives Matter protesters across the world since the killing of George Floyd.

But concerns have been raised after a series of tweets by the UK branch of Black Lives Matter which criticised Israel and called on the British government to ‘defund the police’.

On Tuesday, the Premier League said it recognised ‘the importance of the message that black lives matter’ but made clear that it ‘does not endorse any political organisation or movement, nor support any group that calls for violence or condones illegal activity.’

And Sportsmail can reveal that the issue has been discussed by several players, with a group of top-flight captains considering whether to make a public statement on the matter.

While the players remain united in campaigning for equality and committed to maintaining such symbolic gestures for the remainder of the season, some are concerned about being associated with the political activism of Black Lives Matter UK.

On Sunday, Black Lives Matter UK issued a barrage of tweets over Israel’s proposed annexation of the West Bank and claimed that ‘mainstream British politics is gagged of the right to critique Zionism.’

The following day Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who has ‘taken the knee’ alongside parliamentary colleagues, called it a ‘shame’ that the sentiment behind the Black Lives Matter protests was getting ‘tangled up with these organisational issues’ and said calls to defund the police were ‘nonsense.’

Black Lives Matter UK responded by tweeting that ‘as a public prosecutor, Sir Keir Starmer was a cop in an expensive suit.’

Sky Sports’ ditching of the Black Lives Matter badges during Tuesday’s coverage of Brighton v Manchester United comes after another pundit, Matt Le Tissier, said he only wore the badge after being asked to do so by bosses at the broadcaster.

Mr Le Tissier, 51, criticised the group’s ‘far-left ideology’ and said he ‘could not support’ the cause’s anti-police and anti-capitalist aims.
He had, along with fellow Sky pundit Jamie Carragher appeared on air wearing a Black Lives Matter badge but said he only did so after being asked to.
Sky Sports said the issue of wearing the BLM badge was a matter of individual choice.

A grim read.

“F**ck Western Europe, its people&culture, everything needs to come down, cleanse the public space of whites”
-Entire political class cheers, brands attach themselves to you.

“Maybe the Israelis should stop colonising beyond the '67 borders”
-Instantly de-legitimised, all public support withdraws.

Funny turn of events.

Exclusive: BBC rules that staff should not wear Black Lives Matter badges on air

Number of high-profile organisations are forced to distance themselves from Black Lives Matter as they say organisation has been “hijacked”

The BBC has decided its presenters and guests should not wear Black Lives Matter badges as the campaign was accused of “hijacking” George Floyd’s death for political reasons.

Bosses at the corporation have ruled that “visual symbols of support” for Black Lives Matter should not be worn on screen, senior sources told The Telegraph.

It comes as a number of high-profile organisations were forced to backtrack on their support for the Black Lives Matter movement as its UK arm publicly criticised Israel and called on the British government to “defund the police”.

The BBC’s stance is at odds with other broadcasters including Sky who have displayed BLM hashtags between programmes and encouraged presenters to wear badges of support…

The line that stands out for me is the following, have often thought this was coming, couldn’t have put it better myself -

This is a race war incited by woke identity politics, facilitated by middle class white malcontents and snowflakes, overindulged by their parents and allowed to continue tantrums far beyond their teens, encouraged and enabled by neoliberal university educators and group-think on social media.

There is a video of this out there somewhere.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – An 8-year-old girl died after she was shot during a night of violence across metro Atlanta.

The shooting occurred just before 10 p.m. on University Avenue near I-75/85. The shooting happened in the same area as the deadly shooting death of Rayshard Brooks by a former Atlanta Police officer last month.

According to police, the child was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car exited the interstate near the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Road. Police said the driver was attempting to enter the parking lot on the 1200 block of Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed individuals who were blocking the entrance.

Someone in the group began shooting at the car, hitting it multiple times including the shot that hit the child.

The wounded girl was immediately taken to Atlanta Medical Center in a private vehicle, but she did not survive her injuries.

Atlanta Police are investigating this and multiple other shootings across Atlanta during a night of violence that also saw the Georgia State Patrol Headquarters vandalized.

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water’d heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
