I can’t remember when I last had to bin so many comments on this site.
Sadly, yesterday seemed to break records, and it was utterly depressing.
Apparently, there are out there who agree with those who commissioned the plane banner at the Etihad Stadium.
Monty Sevco’s Flying Circus would be tragically hilarious if the underlying message were not so sinister.
Perhaps the catalyst for this spike in nasty comments was the fact that Jermain Defoe had announced that he would take a knee at the start of the new season.
Fair play to him.
However, his plea has fallen deaf ears and closed minds among the Ibrox klanbase.
It would appear that a movement that is entirely in tune with the Everyone Anyone message is verboten among the Ibrox klanbase.
Yesterday, I was sent this Image, and it powerfully answers those who agree with the plane banner at Manchester.
Sadly, some still don’t get it, and on Planet Fitba you will know them by their noise.
This site started in 2008, and the first issue it tackled was the Famine Song.
In the aftermath of the ruling by UEFA in 2006 on the Billy Boys, the Ibrox klan had to find a replacement.
The design spec was clear enough.
It had to be a rousing ditty that told Scotland’s multi-generational Irish community that they were not welcome in Fair Caledonia.
I’m sure that this chap would have approved of the lyrics.
I think it is essential for your well-being to remind yourself that the Ibrox worldview is aberrant.
It is a diseased belief system that poisons minds.
That is why fans who should be following Jermain Defoe’s lead on these matters find his opinion on Black Lives Matter so objectionable.
Therefore, today has been better thanks to this technology that allows us all to be connected wherever we are.
So far, my day has been taken up NUJ stuff, a meeting of the Irish Executive Council via that Zoom thingy.
Tonight, my branch is also in digital conclave.
We are a spread out bunch here in the North West, from Inis Eoghain in the north and as far south as Contae Fhear Manach.
However, we don’t need a plane soaring over An Earagail to tell us that Black Lives Matter is a clarion call to a better world.
