England Soccer Team Booed by 35,000 Hungarian Children After taking the Knee for BLM

The England soccer team just learned a valuable lesson:

Everyone is tired of their woke bullshit.

It’s 2022, and the England team is still kneeling for the violent organization “Black Lives Matter.”

This time, they did so in Hungary in front of a crowd of majority children.

Hungary was currently serving a 3-match ban of all spectators due to accusations of the crowd making racist comments during games.

A UEFA regulation loophole still allowed for children to attend the game, however.

That just meant England got booed by 35,000 children for their virtue signaling.

Hilariously, Hungary also won the game.

Our friends at Breitbart covered the story:

England’s national football team was roundly booed in Hungary for taking the knee prior to what proved to be a 1-0 loss to the Central European country.

The English national side, managed by Gareth Southgate and captained by Harry Kane, has doggedly persisted in carrying out the gesture, derided as virtue-signalling by some and leftist politicisation of football by others, long after players from most other countries — and indeed, English players in other sports — have quietly moved on since the height of the Black Lives Matter unrest in 2020, and it was poorly received in Hungary on June 4th.

English manager Gareth Southgate didn’t appreciate the boos apparently.

More on Southgate’s reaction from Daily Mail:

Gareth Southgate expressed his dismay on Saturday night that sections of a crowd made up of schoolchildren booed the England team taking the knee at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest.

It was the same stadium where England players were racially abused last year as England crashed to a 1-0 defeat in their opening UEFA Nations League fixture.

Hungary were meant to be playing behind closed doors as punishment for racist and homophobic chants at Euro 2020 but a little-known UEFA regulation allowed 30,000 children in to watch the match for free accompanied by 3,000 adults.

And while anthems were observed impeccably, and there was good natured jeering when England warmed up, as they took the knee to express team solidarity in the face of the racial abuse black players have suffered, there was a sizeable minority who booed and jeered.

Southgate said: ‘I was very surprised. I thought that’s why we do it, to try to educate. I think young people can only be influenced by older people.
