Rees-Mogg: Booing of ‘Take a Knee’ is Pushback Against Wokeness, Isn’t Racist

Senior MP Jacob Rees-Mogg defended England fans who booed players ‘taking a knee’, asserting that the response is a backlash against “wokeness” and not an expression of racism.

Some fans once again booed the national team as players took a knee before the Euro 2020 game with Croatia on Sunday, while Croatia players remained standing.

The football establishment and pundits have tried to characterize the booing as racist, claiming that taking a knee isn’t a political statement, despite it being precisely that.

Players only began taking a knee in June 2020 in the aftermath of violent Black Lives Matter riots in response to the death of George Floyd.

Despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson urging fans to stop booing, Jacob Rees-Mogg leapt to their defense.

“There is a pushback more generally against wokeness (like) the really rather scandalous behaviour of the Oxford dons who are refusing to teach people at Oriel (College) who through no fault of their own are at a college that happens to have a statue of Rhodes that is difficult to take down and they shouldn’t be taking down anyway,” the MP told ConHome.

Rees-Mogg added that there “wasn’t any evidence” the booing was motivated by racism.

As we document in the video below, the virtue signalling gesture is beyond just a political statement in support of BLM, it is a display of cultural hegemony in that players or teams who refuse to mimic it are immediately targeted by woke mobs.

In reality, the act is a despicably onerous symbol of feckless conformity and it should be booed at every available opportunity.

WATCH: England Football Team Kneels at World Cup While U.S. Team Remains Standing

And they failed to beat America at “soccer”

As they said they would, the England football team all took a knee prior to kicking off in a World Cup match against the U.S. Men’s National Team in Qatar. Several commenters noted that the U.S. team remained standing.

The England management team promised last week that players would get on their knees in a general non-specific “inclusion” gesture, despite the fact that taking the knee is directly related to the Black Lives Matter movement and the death of George Floyd.

England, supposedly one of the favourites to win the tournament, then failed to beat the USA in the match as it ended 0-0.

The England team also intended to wear LGBT ‘one love’ armbands in protest of both Qatar and Iran’s treatment of gay people, but were told no by FIFA, football’s governing body.

They became the latest high profile team to not score a victory after choosing to concentrate on virtue signalling, rather than purely on the game:
