BLM, Club's stance.

Whilst on the subject of the Teutonic wonderkind, doesn't your user name frequently appear in print as Adlertag, day one of the Luftwaffe's campaign to destroy the RAF ahead of a Nazi invasion of Britain in 1940? Strange thing to want to be associated with, wouldn't you say?
Again, I suspect you are attempting to imply something that is not there...........................the end result of "EagleDay" is what I am proud of and if groups like BLM have their way they will rewrite that history despite it being an effort of free Europeans and fighters from the Commonwealth.

You do come across as determined to hate black lives matter. Is it the Marxist connotations that cause this? I ask because the overwhelming majority of supporters here and in the States wouldn't thank you to be referred to as Marxists. Is there not even a slight possibility that the good things that can come out of supporting BLM will massively overreach the nonsense that exists in the minds of a few extremists...eh?

I hope you are right, but I have heard too many black American social commentators say they have their strong suspicions about BLM. Hitler was a master at convincing the German people to hate the Jews, I see to many similarities here to be comfortable, especially the things that are happening in the States. Mind you I am of an age that I should have no worries about it, but it's my Grandchildren and future generations that will suffer if things go belly-up.

I understand the point but it's more a reset of historical values FROM the oppressed minority as opposed to against, which your examples were, it makes all the difference.

But isn't that what Hitler was preaching............to be set free from the oppressive Jew?

No one can argue that black people haven't been oppressed by whites, it's historical fact, there was never any basis in the rantings of a mad man pretending the Jewish people had been oppressors.

Whilst the fella who sent this email to the club is clearly an absolute moron and quite possibly a bigot too... he’s also purposefully putting the club in a difficult position trying to get some form of political statement out of them and is then trying to advertise this. All this ‘fan’ is doing is dragging the clubs name through the dirt and potentially harming it. Not only that but just like those Burnley muppets did with Burnley he’s making Blackpool FC it’s supporters and the wider community look bad too.
I don’t want him at the ground if he is a racist. If he’s simply uneducated and missing the point of BLM then I can forgive that as not everyone is able to grasp some concepts - people can ultimately be really thick - however I still don’t want him at the ground as he’s no Blackpool fan. A real Seasider wouldn’t do anything to hurt the club we’ve worked so hard to take back and that email and the sharing of it on social media is only ever going to harm the club.

Sorry, am I missing something here. I saw one video a couple of weeks back but who exactly are these many black American social commentators of whom you speak. Googling ‘black social commentators against BLM’ has left me none the wiser

It would appear that you are not allowed to politely question some of the actions and behaviours of the BLM movement without receiving personal abuse and without facing ridiculous and frivolous accusations of racism.

It would also appear that this board no longer allows people to express non abhorrent views on matters if such views are not held by the majority of other posters.

Personally, I find it rather sad that people appear to have prejudiced views against others who have the ability to think for themselves.

Careful, the cry babies on here will be private messaging the mods to complain about you. You know who you are.

2020,

I was reading through the Rebecca Long Bailey thread and couldn’t help but notice that you haven’t posted anything suggesting it’s wrong to silence those speaking up against questionable acts of the Israeli government. Just wanted to let you know, as it’s clear you’re an advocate of free speech for all.

Scaramanga posted on the thread almost immediately, hailing the work of Kier Starmer is silencing the ‘mad left’.

I don't why you are coming for me ?

Firstly, I have not read the thread on Rebecca Long Bailey and have no intention of doing so and certainly not immediately.

Secondly, all I said was that it would appear that you are not allowed to question the BLM without facing accusations of racism and I do think that's rather sad.

I was never trying to be any champion of free speech and if you have any issues with the Israeli government, Scaramanga or anybody else then probably best to sort it out with them.

Now that you are here, do you think that it's acceptable to question some of the actions and/or behaviours of the BLM without being racist ?

Black lives do matter and it's very important that that is recognised. Equally so, it's good that you recognise that there are extremists not only within that organisation but also outside of it who undermine the hard work that the genuine people of that organisation are doing. It's about honesty and I'm sorry but I do think some on here are less than honest.

Youre right, there are some lovely white supremacists out there 20's
They even hold the noose for you as they string you up.......
It's just those real extremists that shoot you in the back or kill you for dropping litter that give the other racists a bad name.

It's a shame because these extremists have put right wing views into the spotlight and look what happening......people just have the wrong idea of the master race.

Well, you've lost me with that one, b side. Seems you might be deliberately misinterpreting what I've said.
Hey ho, whatever though.
