RIGHT-WING Hero Dominic Raab stood up to the Antifa linked Black Lives Matter UK group following outrage over footballers ‘taking the knee’ and wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the back of their shirts.
The Football Association forbids players and clubs from having political, religious or personal slogans, statements or images or advertising other than the manufacturer’s logo on equipment and kits.
Yet, last night on the comeback of the Beautiful Game football players became Marxist social justice warriors and had the NHS logo on their kits and more controversially the ‘Black Lives Matter’ political message.
Many fans were outraged, with many cancelling Sky subscriptions and slamming the FA for making Football political.
Many say that Football is nothing without its fans, and footy fans are very, very angry.
Politicalite ran a poll on the issue and asked: “Are football players right to ’Take the Knee’ and wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ on shirts?”
So-far the poll has received over 3,000 votes and a striking majority say the players should not be taking the knee or wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their kits.

95.5% said that players weren’t right to wear the slogans, with 4.5% saying players should.
Asked if he would take a knee in support of Black Lives Matter, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab: "I take the knee for two people; the Queen and the Mrs when I asked her to marry me." Listen live ► https://t.co/sv3MZUm41c@JuliaHB1 | @DominicRaab pic.twitter.com/HbCIrCFKKV

Foreign Secretary also joined in the debate, telling Talk Radio that the only time he would ‘take the knee’ is for two people.
The Queen and his Mrs when he asked her to marry him.
He added: “Feels to me like a symbol of subjugation, subordination, rather than one of liberation”.
His comments sparked outrage among Labour MPs – despite the party voting to BAN protests of more than six people.
Labour boss Sir Kier Starmer said Mr Raab was “probably already living to regret” his words.
“It wasn’t a very wise thing to say,” he added in an interview with Granada Reports.
Labour’s shadow justice secretary David Lammy described his comments as “insulting” and “deeply embarrassing” reported the BBC.
