Why the fuck are football players wearing pink? Are you telling us that breast cancer exists? We know. We just don’t want to think of our dying aunt on a Sunday when we’re relaxing with the family and screaming at the TV.
In my column this week, I said bananas on the pitch are a myth. It maybe happened once in Britain. It happens all the time in Eastern Europe and South America where the evil soccer hooligan narrative doesn’t play so we don’t hear about it. The PC revisionists have completely rewritten history and turned Britain’s working class into a bunch of intolerant assholes but they weren’t and they aren’t. They’re violent assholes and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s fun. It’s also the history of soccer. The whole game was invented as an excuse to fight. The fact that political correctness has invaded the game there and begun to invade all sports here is a sign that no meritocracy is safe.
I was born in England to Scottish parents. Our last name was McGuinnes but my grandfather was ashamed of our Irish roots and changed it. I’ve been going back there every year and although I don’t really give a shit about sports, watching the perception of the fans change is fascinating. It’s Stalinist revisionism.
Soccer used to be a blue collar sport but now that the middle and upper classes are getting involved, they want to tell everyone how to behave. That’s bad for Britain and the game and it’s going to be terrible for America.
