Hysterical Political Correctness Hits British Soccer

The hysterical repression of racism is reaching new extremes of tyranny and insanity in the realm of British soccer. Anthony Burke, 41-year-old army vet and Manchester City fan, was actually thrown into jail for making a gesture that some interpreted as racist, despite his denials.

His former partner, identified as Amy, confirms that Burke was hauled off by the police for the alleged thought crime:

“It’s horrible – I have had death threats and my kids. I have been in tears. I am really surprised – this is not like him – his family are black. I keep watching the footage back and I can’t say whether he’s done it or not. Has he done it or hasn’t he done it?”

That doesn’t matter. All that matters is that someone feels offended, even if they feel offended on someone else’s behalf.

When at sporting events, keep your hands in your pockets at all times lest you inadvertently make a gesture that is construed as racist. It could get you indefinitely banned from Chicago Cubs games — or even ruin your career:

Kier Group, which Burke worked for as a civil engineering manager, tweeted he has been suspended pending an investigation.

They say the show must go on. Yet hysterical political correctness can even stop play on the field:

[O]n Saturday, a fourth-tier game in England was temporarily stopped by the referee for racism.

Forest Green Rovers pledged to take stringent action against a supporter for racially abusing a Scunthorpe United player during the League Two game.

Referee John Busby spoke to both managers before a stadium announcement was relayed to the crowd, with the game paused.

The fan involved was quickly identified and an investigation immediately launched, with the perpetrator set to be handed a lifetime ban by the club.

This may soon escalate to on-the-spot executions, which are likely to be more entertaining than watching people kick a ball back and forth.

On a tip from Bluto.
