The Political Elite Have Now Taken Over Sport – Starting With FIFA!
For decades now the liberal elite have run the country without bearing in mind the interests of their country, and the people who live there. It started with Tony Blair, who was basically the driver of the continuum Brown, which moved on to Cameron. They may be from different parties, and they may disagree on minor issues, but they all share one thing; an utter hatred of Britain and the democracy and liberty upon which it was founded. This is sadly demonstrated perfectly with the new FIFA decision to ban poppies because they are a “political message”. Well, let me tell you something – that is not the case. They represent the millions of people who died in both world wars and allow us to remember them forever.
As an organisation, FIFA is riddled with corruption to the core. From the president accepting bribery to nations like Qatar paying senior figures within the ethics committee of FIFA to vote for them to host the next world cup. You can see that FIFA is nasty, selfish, careless, economically motivated cult of evil. And that’s just the start. You see, they have now banned the most recognisable sign of peace in the modern world – the poppy.
Ever since I was a young child I can remember marching down my local high street, proudly donning my red poppy and feeling a sense of honour that those who gave up their lives for my freedom did not die in vain. While of course, I didn’t know any of these men, I know that they fought against the evil Nazis, and ended the persecution of the Jews. Now unless FIFA considers Nazism to be a valid political view then I do not feel that poppies are a “political message” but a social message of peace and equality for all. A message that everyone is equal, and we will fight to defend that. If FIFA disagreed with those points then frankly they are racist Nazi supporters. I know that sounds extreme but when you look at the facts it is sadly the case.
Some of the people who died we as young as 16. Just to put that into perspective, children who wouldn’t have even experienced college today left their lives to go and save somebody else’s. That is bravery beyond what you would find a movie. The fact that people want to forget about this, and claim that people are sending “political messages” by showing a symbol of remembrance scares me. It scares me because our society has got to point where it is considered unacceptable to thank those who fought and died for your rights, your families and your freedom. And FIFA now represents none of these values.
But it’s not just the allied troops that we remember; no, it goes far beyond that. We remember the citizens of the world who died in the two great wars, from concentration camps, from bombing, from nuclear warfare and all of the other horrific acts of these barbaric wars. And we remember those in Germany and its allies who didn’t support the Nazis but had to fight for them or be executed. We remember the Japanese who sadly died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki when it was nuked by America, many of whom were just ordinary families trying to get by. And we remember the innocent civilians of the world who were killed and tortured just because of who they were or where they came from.
Which part of these lasts points is FIFA opposed to exactly? I would rather like to find out whether FIFA are Nazi sympathisers who just despise peace and equality or whether this was just a very bad judgement that will be rapidly rectified. Either the former or latter is true, for both cannot simultaneously be so.
But this can be changed. While it won’t be easy, if we can pile enough pressure on FIFA to go back on their decision, we will win. A petition by the Sun is doing extremely well, and I would urge you to sign it here and share it with your friends to help make a difference.
