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.

Video: Condoleezza Rice Blasts Critical Race Theory: “I Don’t Have To Make White Kids Feel Bad For Being White”

“This is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice criticised proponents of Critical Race Theory Wednesday, declaring that “this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

Appearing on The View, Rice, now the Director of the Hoover Institution, addressed CRT following the Biden administration’s apparent desire to punish parents who stand up against it being taught to their children in schools.

“If I could take a moment to talk about the whole issue of Critical Race Theory and what is, and is not being taught, I come out of an academic institution, and this is something that academics debate. What is the role of race and so forth?” Rice said.

She continued, “let me be very clear; I grew up in segregated, Birmingham, Alabama. I couldn’t go to a movie theater, or to a restaurant with my parents. I went to segregated schools till we moved to Denver. My parents never thought I was going to grow up in a world without prejudice, but they also told me, ‘That’s somebody else’s problem, not yours. You’re going to overcome it, and you are going to be anything you want to be.’ And that’s the message that I think we ought to be sending to kids.”

“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past,” Rice further emphasised.

“I don’t think that’s very productive,” she then declared, adding “Or black people have to feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

Watch:

It seems Rice is now pro-slavery… and racist… and not a real person of colour… or something:

Rice’s comments come in the wake of video emerging of a teacher at a high school in Ohio talking about books and themes closely associated with CRT, despite previous promises to parents from officials that it wasn’t happening in the district’s schools.

    Video: 6th Grader Secretly Records Teacher Peddling Critical Race Theory To Class

    District superintendent previously claimed it wasn’t happening

    Video has emerged of a teacher at a high school in Ohio talking about books and themes closely associated with so called ‘critical race theory’, despite previous promises to parents from officials that it wasn’t happening in the district’s schools.

    The footage, apparently secretly recorded by a student at Franklin Woods Intermediate School, appears to show a teacher lecturing children about how not engaging in anti-racism activism means that Americans are enabling racism.

    The teacher admits to being an ‘activist’ and points to the book “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You” written by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi, key figures in the CRT movement.

    The teacher says “Some people might call it racist. It’s actually three categories, if you read the book ‘Stamped’ you’ll hear that there’s three areas. There’s anti-racist which is a person who works to end racism. An activist, someone who is active, and that’s what I was trying to be. I was reading books, I was going to rallies, I was trying to be in that group.”

    The teacher continues, “Then there’s the opposite which is someone who is racist, who discriminates against people of a certain group and that sort of thing.”

    “But then there’s the middle group,” the teacher continues, adding “A middle group is what most people are. Most people don’t actively work to end racism, and most people don’t work to be in the racist group. So most people are in that middle group, called an ‘assimilationist.’ An assimilationist doesn’t actively work to end it, and doesn’t work to be in the racist group.”

    Watch:

    Mirrored at Rumble:

    As noted in the original Twitter post, Superintendent Bill Wise previously assured parents on a Zoom school board meeting that CRT wasn’t being taught in Ohio schools:

    It was recently revealed that the Biden government planned to target angry parents who have spoken out against critical race theory being taught to their children with anti-terrorism policies.

    Video: Professor Charges UCLA Suspended Him To “Rehabilitate Their Own (Racist) Image”

    After he refused to grade black students more leniently

    A professor who claims he was suspended for refusing to grade black students more leniently has charged that UCLA sidelined him in an effort to offset its own “horrible reputation for racism.”

    As we reported last year, Accounting lecturer Gordon Klein was placed on leave after he rejected requests to allow black students to take final exams at a later date as a response to the death of George Floyd and black lives matter protests.

    Klein, who had worked at UCLA for 39 years, responded at the time by noting “Remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the ‘color of their skin.'”

    The professor later brought a lawsuit against the university, which is ongoing.

    Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show Monday, Klein described UCLA’s actions as a “publicity stunt,” noting “They decided they’ve got a horrible reputation for racism, bias, and instability within the school of management where I teach, and so they decided that they’d make an example out of me to rehabilitate their own reputation.”

    Klein says he has a “100 percent change of prevailing” in the lawsuit so long as he gets a fair trial, adding “The irony is they hired me to teach law and ethics to students and guess what? I’m now going to teach them a lesson in law and ethics.”

    Klein noted that “it’s in the rulebook, grade people based on merit, it’s in the rulebook, never discriminate. I’ve lived my life never discriminating,” adding “I was grotesquely offended by the condescending nature,” of the request to grade black students more leniently.

    “It’s bizarre,” Klein continued, adding “you almost have to say it several times. They called me a racist because I quoted martin Luther king in support of a color-blind society.”

    Watch:

    Klein’s case is not an isolated one. There were several reports from elsewhere in the country last year of black students demanding they be given leniency or just better grades at the height of the black lives matter protests.

    There are also countless cases of so called Critical Race Theory, and BLM influenced stances taking over college and university syllabuses, with anyone opposed in the firing line.
