Taking the knee

Not really a big fan of footie, but disappointed to see England taking the knee before the match with Croatia. At least Wales just got on with it. 

Why can't they just enjoy the games?

Re: Taking the knee

Fully agree; shameful to see most F1 Drivers performing the ritual at start of each race, at the behest of the keen BLM/ ANTIFA fan one Lewis *******. I'd have no objection if they did after race ends, and trophies dished out Smiley

Re: Taking the knee

"Heil  Hitler,"  would also be appreciated by the crowd, I am sure...  as they could respond in kind, raising their right arm and hand in the approved manner.

Where did they get that Idea from……?

Re: Taking the knee

@gleneagles   I think it is a "reminder" of how oppressed the negro/black communities feel, after that  copper kneeled on his "suspects" neck, during arrest, from which injuries sustained thereupon, he died...

Re: Taking the knee

I can grudgingly accept the meaning of words changing to suit someone's current agenda, and if someone wants to get down on one knee and swear an oath of fealty to their lord and master that's up to them. But if they expect me to accept their own fanciful made up interpretation for this I say no, it's not going to happen. It taking things too far.
