Jeg får ikke set EM-kampene, men flere landshold er tilsyneladende ikke færdig med at hylde kriminelle sorte. England knæler stadig for Floyd og Black Lives Matter, selvom det møder modstand fra engelske fans. Flere østeuropæiske lande har et mere traditionelt forhold til den slags, og hverken Ungarn eller Rusland har et ønske om at underkaste sig selvhadende marxisme. Been there. Done that,. Got the t-shirt.
Herunder Victor Orbans kommentar til BLM-hysteriet i kølvandet på en nyligt afholdt venskabskamp mod Irland. Fra Irish Times – Hungarian prime minister says Irish players provoked fans in Budapest (10. juni 2021).
“Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban has backed fans who booed the Republic of Ireland team for taking the knee before this week’s match in Budapest, accusing the visiting players of ‘provoking’ their hosts and failing to understand their culture.
Ireland’s manager Stephen Kenny described the booing before Tuesday’s game as ‘incomprehensible’, and the crowd’s reaction to the protest against racism has thrown a spotlight on Hungary as it prepares to host several Euro 2020 ties.
‘I am not in the least sympathetic to the kneeling – sport is about something else and there is no place on the field for that,’ Mr Orban declared on Thursday. …
‘We do not expect the Hungarian national team to get on their knees but to fight, to win and, if they fail, to die standing up,’ he declared, adding that Hungarian men kneel only ‘before God, the homeland and their beloved when they propose marriage.’”
