The Beautiful Game

983 words

Some people think football (soccer) is a matter of life and death. I don’t like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.

— Bill Shankly, former manager of the Liverpool Football Club

Sport is tribal. It is a contest between individuals and teams. It evokes instinctive and visceral passions, which is why it is so addictive and so capable of animating the human spirit. It is, as a consequence, inevitably a case of them versus us. There is no room for ambiguity. People take sides. We naturally identify with and want those competitors who look like us or the team that most closely resembles our family and friends to win. In some ways, it is a sort of sublimation – a form of personal wish-fulfillment. After all, we, as supporters, invest time, money, and emotional commitment to them – and in a way, “we” and “they” become one.

So the furor about the Bulgarian football fans chanting racist abuse at certain members of the so-called English football team came as no surprise. It may not be polite, and it may not be dignified, but as a commentary on the state of England at the present time, it is most certainly justified.

After all, the current English manager, Gareth Southgate, has himself made a point of stressing the importance of choosing an ethnically diverse team as if it was his top criteria upon taking up the job. And he is openly celebrated in the British media for selecting the most multiracial squad for England our country has ever sent to a World Cup tournament – a competition where English fans were warned that if they sang pro-Brexit songs, they would be fined. Southgate stalks the sidelines in a blue waistcoat and took eleven players of color to Russia, most of whom work with immigrant groups in the UK, and all of them are beneficiaries of the massive investment by the British government in inner-city sports academies and “Hard to Reach” communities. He makes no bones about his objective, continually talking about how football brings people together. But that is simply not enough for journalists like Tom Rosenthal, who saw an opportunity to make a political point about what the press called “The Windrush Scandal”:

It is only a month since the government was illegally deporting people who could have been the grandparents of Raheem Sterling or Jesse Lingard. Young men like Dele Alli and Danny Welbeck, with parents from Nigeria and Ghana respectively, are routinely told they should be grateful for the opportunities Britain has given them – a reminder that while they are British, they are not the same class of British as white Brits. And while England players are famous enough not to be stopped and searched, they will have friends for whom that is a depressingly regular occurrence.

And for his part, Steve Boomfield, the Deputy Editor of Prospect and the author of Africa United: How Football Explains Africa, said, “For many of us – and not just those who backed remain – the young, multiracial team on the pitch is a far better reflection of England than the Brexit-supporting politicians cheering from the sidelines.”

These are partisan views that make it clear that “The Beautiful Game” can and is being used to advance the Left’s agenda by intoxicating the youth with an addiction to multiculturalism. Two perfect examples of this are the praise heaped upon the composition of the French teams that won the World Cup in 1998 and 2018; the former was heralded as the very best a “black, blanc, beur” nation could offer, while the latter was simply taken for granted. These sentiments were echoed by the virtue-signaling German manager, Joachim Löw, whose side took the same title in 2014, and who described those members of his squad with dual nationalities as “having two hearts beating in their chest.”

Similar trite nonsense was uttered made Vincent Kompany, the former Belgian national captain, when he insisted that he is “one hundred percent Congolese and one hundred percent Belgian,” which unsurprisingly demonstrates his woeful lack of comprehension for both mathematics and genetics.

So it came as no surprise that the day after the debacle in Bulgaria, where England ran up a 6-0 victory over a far weaker side, that the lead story on every news outlet was what Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his cohorts in Parliament described as the “vile” behavior of a small group of neo-Nazis who made certain unsavory salutes and greeted the English team with monkey whoops. At the post-match press conference, England’s manager explained that he had left it up to the players to decide if they wanted to continue with the match or simply walk off the field. His PC-trained mouthpieces like Jordan Henderson said, “I obviously wasn’t happy with the situation that we were in, it wasn’t nice to be involved in it, and it shouldn’t be happening in 2019.” The Liverpool defender added that he and his teammates wanted to make Bulgaria “suffer” because of their xenophobia.

The media leapt upon this idea by portraying black debutante Tyrone Mings as a martyr somewhat akin to Martin Luther King, and also went to Raheem Stirling’s old school – which, predictably, is ninety-five percent black – and interviewed young, aspiring footballers about the racism they experience every single day of their lives. The article ended with the both embarrassing and humiliating sight and sound of England supporters singing, “Who put the goal in the racists’ net?”

All of this provides me with the evidence – if I ever needed any – to justify my reasons for applauding Czechia’s recent victory over England and Iceland’s historic 2-1 defeat of England in the 2016 European Championships. My heart surged every time I heard their Viking thunderclap celebration echoing around the stadiums where they played. I will always support all-white teams, or even majority white teams, over all others, and will always cheer when the white man scores.

    Never been a fan of football/soccer, in the States I grew up playing baseball. Later, tennis and lacrosse. Manual dexterity sports tend to dominate over here.

    I digress.

    Aside from combat sports, I’ve never seen blacks and Mexicans show any work ethic during practice. If they have what they feel to be natural talent they tend to be even more lazy and arrogant. But, what I was saying earlier definitely applies to the types of sports that whites tend to excel at over blacks. Anything that requires precise manual dexterity and balance – i.e. – the ability to use tools. That is why they tend to over-state the achievements of Tiger Woods and Serena Williams. It isn’t about equality, it is about inundating every single white space with token diversity.

    Friendly competition has become markedly less friendly. Just because some Zulu is wearing an English or American jersey doesn’t make them white. Being proximal to white civilization just makes white civilization worse, it doesn’t make them better.

It isn’t about equality, it is about inundating every single white space with token diversity.

      This is an intriguing observation and you raise a sound — and perhaps a valid argument — on why the representation of blacks is minimal in sports that require precise manual dexterity and balance. As an alpinist and mountaineer, I’ve encountered virtually zero blacks in my sport of climbing. You’ll occasionally stumble upon a couple during the summer months in the more popular National Parks, but even then, sightings are more-less limited to the less technical trails near convenient access points. The few blacks that I’ve encountered while enjoying the great outdoors have been less than pleasant experiences. They either complain a lot or engage in aggressive, harassing behavior towards whites – which I assume is because of the secluded nature of the outdoors, which creates an environment ripe for opportunistic behavior. Sadly, there’s been a recent call to diversify the outdoors as cultural Marxists have deemed outdoor recreation as being “too white”.

      In addition to Tiger Woods and Serena Williams, another token black athlete would be gymnast Simone Biles.

    Many say blacks are better at sports, but I find that hard to believe. Some of the greatest athletes have been white, even in recent times. The same can’t be said for blacks and science: ”some of the greatest scientists and nobel winners in the sciences are black”, ah, no. The thing is whites were always slightly above blacks (in the XXth century) when talking about material comfort, but since the 90’s and 2000’s whites are living in a completelly diferent world in terms of material comfort if compared to blacks and other non-whites. The obvious result is that 1000+% blacks are trying to get into sports (because it is the only way to climp the social ladder and make lots of money for them), especially some sports like soccer and basketball, so the absolute majority of athletes in those sports are now black. (Of course that doesn’t mean whites are inferior on athletic hability). White culture doesn’t value sports that much which makes for a considerable number of whites who grow up without any serious contact with it, while most high level athletes in sports like soccer also come from the richest and biggest cities (where the top clubs are) and needless to say that even in western europe the biggest cities/capitals are being flooded with non-whites.

    As a white brazilian who just recently got more aware of my identity and even more recently got 100% certaintity about my full ancestry (this country is probably the number 1 in regards to pure or virtually pure whites who don’t know they are whites because of the brainwashing), I remember 10 years ago when a considerable number of top soccer players in Brazil were white. I even liked the non-white players back then, but I always identified more with the white ones, like Kaka, it was instinctive for me. Now, the team which represents the country has not a single ”pure” or pure looking white guy (except for the Goalkeeper as whites, usually of german ancestry, are way taller).

    Soccer is pure anti-white cancer now because of capitalism (too much material comfort leads to degeneracy), jews and replacement migration.

    Reminder as well that tiny Croatia — all ethnically Croatian from memory aside from a lone naturalized Brazilian — beat polyglot England at the last world cup. Croatian fans generally have the same attitudes as Bulgarian fans when it comes to race.

      I have just returned from Split and Trogir in Croatia where I was lectured in a friendly manner on exactly that point – ethnically united Croatia easily defeated England’s polyglot side.

      Both Croatia and Serbia have great club and national teams.

    I stopped watching football in 1990 when I realized that something changed and they will not show football as I know it and wanted.

    In my opinion the problem is not the capital, but two other things.
    1. The greed and fear – today a football player will not accept the meager payment from the sixties or seventies, while having to work a normal job eventually. Also he have to gather as much as fast as he can, because an accident can let him instantly poor.
    2. Everybody wants to associate with the winners. From companies that pay huge amounts of money on advertising, men that do not have any other win in their life beside “their” teams, to the women that are invading the bars and the clubs where the players are… No need to explain more. Working class men want to be with the winners, they do not like to loose, even with panache.

    The modern football player doesn’t play for you and do not represent you. He strictly plays for himself because the money do not come from you. In communism, as in capitalism they don’t earn their wage from the people paying tickets. They earn from advertising, television rights, sports betting, match fixing, selling and buying players, football is the perfect place to launder money, but more than that and probably the most important a football team is a political tool by definition. And it is so for a very long time, probably before the birth date of anyone commenting here.

    Frankly speaking we can decry the lack of representation, but politically speaking we should start with the gross corruption in football and the doping. Today you are not allowed to say that some Congolese is not Belgian, but you can say that he plays poorly, is taking “roids”, or he is fixing matches, or envolved in some money laundering. And all these moght be as true as him being a Congolese.

    And also, someone might be upset that Roman Abramovitch bought CSKA Moscow, but the real question should be how much the Russian generals who sold the team were bribed and how many of them were sent to prison for that.

    In defence of sports, they encourage competition, honour, fitness and group identity.
    Of course sports can be a breeding ground for unwelcome behaviors and sports are one area of culture that was pozzed a long time ago, partly by virtue of the fact that blacks tend to be highly represented among athletes.
    I could name dozens of other examples of where sports got pozzed: women’s sports and the ongoing psyop there, the “Rainbow Laces” campaign, even the very nature of international sport lending itself so well to race-realism, and yet the oblivious way commentators talk about proceedings, proves how far Leftist thinking has permeated the culture.
    Sports are now almost completely pozzed and it’s getting to the stage where if someone says they are a sports fan and follows sports, that it’s almost a red flag.
    Soccer in particular is basically radioactive now. But we shouldn’t throw the baby out of the bathwater. Sports, in isolation, are a good thing, and I’m sure there are some less well known sports that are free of poz.

      If you listen to and observe the commentators/TV pundits you will quickly notice the way they will exaggerate the contribution non-whites make to any game. The press for example use photos of England’s black players with their headlines when they win but after their recent defeat in Prague used a close up of two white players holding their heads in shame.

      Even more egregious (non-sport related) was an article about knife crime on last night’s news – they illustrated the piece with footage of an all white school and used posters with a white man in handcuffs. The piece ended however with a demand for more funding for inner city schools and images of blacks who had been let down by the system. These are standard techniques now.

    Some excellent points here and I agree with Nicholas Jeelvy’s comment about being able to relate to local teams, with players who are a part of the community.

    The article talks about national soccer teams – but I think it’s fair to say the same internationalising effect is occurring with most professional level sports teams across the Western world.

    This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Pro sports teams are businesses – and have embraced the idea that talent doesn’t have to be locally developed, but can be more easily purchased from abroad. Of course global capital has been doing this with manufacturing and, increasingly, the services sector since the start of trade liberalisation (globalism as policy).

    So it’s not just a case of the English team looking international because some undefined ‘leftists’ say so. The Newcastle United and Watford sides are highly diverse because – as with all capitalist business – those clubs have bought talent internationally. It’s deeply ironic to see unemployed Geordies cheering on ‘their’ team, full of international players, while their own precarious lives are largely due to the outsourcing of their work by the same kind of corporation that their once-local club has become.

    To enable all of this, workers need to be softened up to the idea of globalisation – since it’s clear that this is not the natural worldview of the proles, who are famously tribal. Multi-ethnic sport is effective because it goes straight to the interests of working people.

    As always, it’s easy to confuse disease with symptom. The observable diversity of pro-sports and the lame-liberal (‘leftist’) pronouncements of their coaches and managers are a symptom. The disease is global capital.

      I always think back to the old Jerry Seinfeld skit about (american) football, where he says that people love or hate a player based on which team he plays for, regardless of his personal qualities as a player, so ultimately, you don’t support the people, but rather – the clothes, i. e. the team insignia and colors.
      It is as absurd as it sounds. A team is made ultimately of people, whereas the colors, insignia and club culture serve as organizing and rallying symbols (as well as generators of asabiyyah). But if the people on the team are no longer your people, loyalty to the clothes and colors gradually becomes the provenance of morons. That’s why at this point, we call it sportsball.

    I appreciate this article. I grew up supporting Manchester City in the 1990’s. The club’s chairman was a local butcher who’d done well in business. Both Manchester clubs were chaired by white local butchers, managed by white men and the majority of players were white.
    Sadly my club is owned by an Arab and them lot down the road are owned by Jewish brothers.

    Actually, when one says he’s 100% Congolese and 100% Belgian, what he means is that his race is 100% important as a Congolese and the meaning of Belgian has been gutted of all actual significance beyond placeholder for convenience– a landmass, a title of approbation.

    THAT is what must be challenged, dismissed and reversed.

    He’s NOT Belgian and never would be because its a racial identity too and denying that destroys the whole meaning of Belgian.

    Well,it is an auspicious state,that many fans of the biggest football club in England,namely Manchester United,are racists.Political correctness have charged them with the “accusation” of racism.What I mean,is that we could have a strong backround,when fans of such big football clubs are on our side.Do not overlook this,because is of great significance.I guess time will tell.

    In most places, the football supporters clubs and hardcore “ultras” are extreme nationalists.

    In the US, the MLS soccer supporters clubs are trannies, limpwristed gays and Antifa globalist corporate shills.

      As obnoxiously displayed by the USA Women’s soccer team following their championship title in the World Cup. The majority of this team’s players would qualify as being the epitome of a degenerate.

    Football loses meaning when teams no longer represent the community they ostensibly represent. The club I supported throughout my entire youth was bought by a (((Russian))) oligarch and loaded with mercenary players.
    Contrast that with our local rugby team who can’t play for shyte, but I went to school with two of the players and I am fewer than three degrees of separation from everyone else on the team. Watching them embarrass themselves on the field feels real and exciting, whereas mercenary football is just boring.

      Likewise. I’m also a Westerner from a working class background who never became infatuated with football. I look at it as being a form of modern day bread and circuses. Furthermore, football today promotes many forms of degeneracy such as capitalism, consumerism, materialism, globalism, Idolatry, modernism, universalism, thuggery, and perhaps the worst ones — cultural Marxism and multiculturalism. Football — whether the NRL or NFL – have become inherently anti-White and anti-Christian.
