Former Brexit leader says BLM “wants to bring down the whole of Western civilization”

Share:

LONDON, ENGLAND- For those who believe Black Lives Matter is only interested in taking down the American system, think again. Nigel Farage, who led the Brexit movement in Great Britain last year slammed England’s national football team when they kneeled for BLM during the delayed UEFA European Football Championship 2020, Breitbart News reported.

“Look, you cannot separate taking the knee from the Black Lives Matter movement,” Farage said during an interview with the GB News network, newly launched in Great Britain.

“It is an avowedly, openly Marxist organization that wants to defund the police and wants to bring down the whole of Western civilization—don’t take my word for it, just read the website—and you can’t separate the two,” said Farage, former Reform UK party leader.

Farage slammed England manager Gareth Southgate, who expressed support for the kneeling.

“When he said this week ‘We are about more than football’—no, Mr. Southgate, you are about football,” Farage said.

“The idea that it’s right for the football team to get involved with political gestures is a mistake, and that’s what the fans are rebelling against.

“And you’ll notice we’re pretty much the only team in the whole competition that are taking the knee,” he went on.

“I think [Gareth Southgate] has made a big mistake with this, I really do.”

Where Britain’s prime minister Boris Johnson’s government had been somewhat indifferent on issues such as taking the knee, in recent months he has actually defended Joe Biden against criticism about being too “woke,” with Johnson saying there is “nothing wrong with being woke.”

Johnson has also bought into the “build back better” mantra,  bought into by Biden and other leftists worldwide which is basically code word for a “new world order.” Johnson encourages doing so in a “more equal, and…in a more gender-neutral, and perhaps a more feminine way,” this past week at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England.

Conversely, Britain’s Home Secretary Priti Patel, believed by most to be the Cabinet’s strongest member regarding rhetoric has issued an unequivocal criticism of those who kneel, telling GB News that she doesn’t “support people participating in that type of gesture politics.”

“We saw last year, in particular, with some of the protests that took place, I speak now very much from what I saw on the impact on policing—it was devastating,” she said.

“I just don’t subscribe to this view that we should be rewriting our history; toppling statues,” she said, although she declined to criticize the football fans in Britain who have been booing England players for kneeling.

“That’s a choice for them, frankly,” she said.

According to Yahoo News, Southgate, Johnson and the Football Association had asked fans not to boo the so-called “anti-racism” stance. That didn’t seem to work, as there was an audible round of jeers coming from the estimated crowd of 22,500 at the match with Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

A spokesman for the Football Association (UEFA) said prior to the match that the governing body wouldn’t punish any countries whose supporters react to the kneeling gesture in a negative way.

“UEFA has a zero tolerance against racism and any player who wants to demand equality amongst human beings by taking the knee will be allowed to do so,” he said. “We urge spectators to show respect for teams and players taking the knee.”

He continued:

“UEFA will not take disciplinary action against the national association for their fans’ reaction to this initiative as there are no legal grounds to do so in the current competition and disciplinary regulations and to do so would be to punish a national association whose players have taken a stand against racism.”

Law Enforcement Today recently reported on Black Lives Matter coming out in solidarity with Hamas and Hezbollah in solidarity with the terrorist organizations. For more on that, we invite you to:

DIG DEEPER

GAZA CITY, GAZA STRIP – Black Lives Matter has announced its full support of the Palestinians in the ongoing violence between Hamas supporters and Israel, a week after terrorists in Gaza began firing rockets onto Israel’s civilian population.

Black Lives Matter posted its solidarity with the Palestinians on its Twitter page on Monday:

“Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. ( always have. And always will be ).”

The post featured the hashtag #freepalestine.

The tweet caught the attention of the BDS Movement, an anti-Israeli organization calling for a boycott of any Israeli companies and any foreign companies that “are complicit in the violations of Palestinian rights.”

The BDS Movement responded to the BLM tweet saying:

“Thank you for your solidarity. From Ferguson to Palestine, our struggles against racism, white supremacy and for a just world are united!”

The tweet compared the conflict in Gaza with the anti-police movement in the United States championed by Black Lives Matter. Ferguson, Missouri, was the city where Michael Brown was killed in a fatal police shooting.

The shooting of Michael Brown led to a false narrative that he had his hands up when he was shot on August 9, 2014. The incident resulted in a rise in calls for police reforms, despite the shooting being ruled justified when it was proven that Brown attacked the officer and tried to take the officer’s gun.

The incident is often considered the birthplace of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Violence between Israel and Hamas militants heated up on May 10 when Hamas terrorists began firing rockets into civilian populations in Jerusalem following a violent clash between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters at the al-Aqsa mosque.

Israel launched airborne counterattacks and activated its Iron Dome defense system.

Gaza’s death toll on Wednesday crossed 227, including 64 children and 38 women. Over 12 people have died in Israel.

A delegation of BLM leaders traveled to GAZA in 2015, the first of several trips to the region, according to BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors. In an interview with Ebony Magazine in 2015, Cullors said:

“This is an apartheid state. We can’t deny that and if we do deny it, we are a part of the Zionist violence.”

Cullors has said in an interview on the Laura Flanders Show that black people in America feel a “kindred-ness” with the Palestinians because of their “eerily similar” experiences:

“We are in deep solidarity with them, and frankly believe that Palestine is the new South Africa.”

 

Some local BLM chapters joined the national foundation in their support of the Palestinians in the conflict. BLM Paterson in New Jersey said in a press release:

“Our deep roots of solidarity are part of a rich tradition of mutual support and exchange between Palestine and US-based liberation movements, from the Black Panthers to the most recent communication between activists in Gaza and Ferguson, MO.

“Our struggles are connected in many ways, not least because the same Israeli forces forcibly expelling the original inhabitants of Sheikh Jarrah train repressive police forces around the world, including the US.”

The group made a demand that the United States government turn its support from Israel, long an ally of the United States, and re-direct $3.9 billion in US aid from Israel to the Palestinians:

“We stand together with our Muslim brothers and sisters during the holy month of Ramadan and demand that Senator Cory Booker, Senator Robert Menendez, our 12 U.S. Representatives from New Jersey, and the Biden Administration join us in condemning these senseless acts of violence and work to end the state of Israel’s campaign of terror against the Palestinian people.

“We demand that the 3.9 billion dollars in U.S. aid earmarked for Israel be diverted to help the victims of violence being perpetrated against the Palestinian people. The People United will never be defeated!”

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have announced airstrikes ahead of time to allow civilians in Gaza to flee, but many civilians have been killed despite the effort. Palestinian rockets fly indiscriminately and without warning.

IDF posted a reaction to the violence on its Twitter account. The post includes a video purportedly showing Palestinians being used as shields for Hamas equipment and facilities, and rockets being fired into Israel.

The IDF said:

“Israel fights to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect itself.”

Hamas is a U.S.-designated terrorist organization that has killed hundreds of Israeli citizens, as well as Americans, in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks.

‘Squad’ member Rep. Tlaib calls Israel a ‘racist state’, makes claim that Palestinians were excluded from vaccinations

January 20, 2021

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) claimed Palestinians are being excluded from the COVID-19 vaccine because Israel is a “racists state.” She made the comments during an interview on January 19 on the left-wing program “Democracy Now!”

Tlaib is the first woman of Palestinian descent to be elected to Congress and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, along with Ilhan Omar (D-MN). She is a member of “The Squad,” the informal name for a group of six Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives who represent the left-wing of the Democratic Party.

During the interview, host Amy Goodman asked Tlaib what she thought about Israel being the “most vaccinated” country, vaccinating 20% of its population, while Palestinians have not been vaccinated. Tlaib responded:

“I think it is important to understand that Israel is a racist state. They would deny Palestinians, like my grandmother, access to a vaccine.

“They don’t believe that she is an equal human being that deserves to live, deserves to be protected by this global pandemic. “

Israel has received global praise for the rapid roll-out of vaccine to its population, including those Israelis living in West Bank settlements. Israel has the most-vaccinated population on the planet.

However, the roll-out has been condemned by human rights groups and the Palestinian National Authority, claiming the 5 million Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza have been excluded from receiving the vaccine. Israel disputes the claim, saying the Palestinian Authority refused help.

Regardless, Amnesty International called out Israel on January 6:

“The Israeli government must stop ignoring its international obligations as an occupying power and immediately act to ensure that COVID-19 vaccines are equally and fairly provided to Palestinians living under its occupation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.”

Saleh Higazi, Deputy Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International, said:

“Israel’s COVID-19 vaccine programme (sic) highlights the institutionalized discrimination that defines the Israeli government’s policy towards Palestinians.

“While Israel celebrates a record-setting vaccination drive, millions of Palestinians living under Israeli control in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip will receive no vaccine or have to wait much longer – there could hardly be a better illustration of how Israeli lives are valued above Palestinian ones.”

Israel points to the Oslo Accords, which gave the Palestinian Authority oversight of public health under the principles of self-determination. The Israeli government said Palestinians might receive surplus vaccines but said the Palestinian Authority had not requested help.

Originally, the Palestinian Authority condemned Israel for not including the Palestinians in the vaccine roll-out. The Authority’s Foreign Ministry said:

“The search by the Palestinian leadership to secure the vaccines from various sources does not exempt Israel from its duties towards the Palestinian people in providing the vaccines.”

The Foreign Ministry backtracked on their claim Sunday:

“Israel’s responsibility is not an abdication in any way of the responsibilities of the State of Palestine towards the Palestinian people, including providing healthcare and COVID vaccinations.”

American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris supported the Israeli claim that the Palestinians did not request help. He tweeted:

“Palestinians aren’t ‘excluded from Israeli COVID vaccine rollout. They rejected COVID cooperation with Israel. They’re in charge of (their) own health care under Oslo Accords. They spurned UAE’s (United Arab Emirates) COVID aid -They’re awaiting millions of doses of Russian vaccine.”
