While shaming “racist” soccer fans who dress up as knights, BBC lies about the Crusades

Rebel Staff
 

This Friday, the Euro 2016 soccer tournament begins. European soccer fans love to dress up in their national costumes. In fact, it’s one of the only areas left where Europeans are allowed to have a national identity.

One traditional costume for British sports fans is that of a knight in shining armour, like St. George, the patron saint of England.

But that’s too Christian and militaristic for the tender souls at the BBC.

On their website, they made an issue out of these costumes. A Muslim told them, “Conquest and pillage in the name of Christianity isn't exactly a positive reminder of our history and not something we should really be celebrating.”

(Right. Conquest and pillage — such a Christian thing…)

This isn’t just political correctness or western self-loathing. This is Islamic historical revisionism.

Tonight I explain what the Crusades were really all about: They were a war to repulse Muslim conquerors, who are the role models for today’s Islamic State.

NEXT: Sun Media Columnist Lorrie Goldstein joins me to talk about Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's latest green energy grab.

THEN Charles Burton, an expert in all things China, weighs in on that country's attack on Canada's free press, and whether Stephane Dion or Justin Trudeau should have done more to stand up for our country.

FINALLY: I'm still getting messages about my heated debate with Mark Cameron -- plus your feedback about electric cars.

A weapon in the progressives’ arsenal is historical revisionism . They will spin a yarn to safeguard their ‘received’ wisdom……. the official narrative .Question that narrative at your peril !

Obama made similar ignorant, Christian hating arguments, about the Crusades. Funny no one mentions that the Crusades were in response to Islamic expansion. There are definitely many things to criticize about the Crusades, such as Jews that were targeted, or the sacking of Constantinople, but fighting Islam is not one of them.

The BBC has a history of whitewashing history.

Nothing scares progs and Muslims more than Crusaders.

After all, they can’t be constantly reminded that invading Muslim hordes started them off in the first place. That’s something they definitely don’t want to happen again.

BBC is just keeping up the narrative. It’s about keeping up white guilt & undermining nationalism. The history of the crusades has been buried under so much misinformation that these revisionists are actually surprised when you correct them.

Europe’s cap & trade has failed 3 times at this point. The California carbon scam has failed & Wynne wants to plug Ontario into it. They’re selling a lie & the mainstream media is their PR firm.

Liberal concerns for human rights are highly selective at best. For example, they’re so concerned about Syrian Muslims that they’ll recruit them from apartments in Lebanon & elsewhere (& lie about doing so.) yet will ignore the plight of Yazidis, Coptic Christians, etc. (real refugees.) The Chinese know the Liberals are weak & are treating them (& us) as such.

I hope the Romanian team show up dressed like Vlad the Impayler and the Polish team like Jan Sobieski.

Any Islamic trash complaining can leave the premises immediately – they have never created anything good in the countries they come from and they destroy anything good in the countries they invade.

Every Islamic country is a schitte hole and every place they end up invading becomes a schitte hole.

Soccer’s called football in Europe? Now why would that be?

Another example of the partnership between islamic radicals (allah-turds) and socialists/liberals.

These vermin – the liberal kind – are up to something.

At this rate, it will soon be offensive for Canadians to put on a Mountie costume.

Hey BBC if not for the crusades you would not be eating bacon or drinking alcohol. Now either face the truth or live like the crusades never happened idiots.

You cannot be a Knight in shining armor but it is OK for the Prime Idiots friends to go around dressed like 7th Century throat slitting morons, every day. When the Muslims dress like human beings then perhaps westerners will stop dressing like Crusaders..

The crusaders only won where they went. They should’ve continued and eradicated islam

re Prof. Charles Burton: An excellent resource for TheRebel. Let’s hear more from him, especially considering the impact of China on our Federal Government’s policies.

Amin (commenter) said it himself “we need to move on”. Damn rights. Too bad liberals don’t listen to their own rubbish. Didn’t Bam Bam say he is a Christian while running for POTUS but strangely as time has gone he is seen as the Muslim he really but no one questions that he has never been a “Christian” in word or deed!

Mr. Harper calls liberals joy killers.
