World Cup for corporations

A World Cup for corporations

The World Cup 2014 is set to begin today in São Paulo and end on July 13 in Rio de Janeiro. For this much-anticipated month of soccer, Brazilian citizens have paid a very high price, including the 10 billion reals ($4.47 billion) that FIFA, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, headquartered in Switzerland, will pocket, which is as much as the two last World Cups put together.
In Brazil there’s always room for soccer. Anywhere. On the street, on the beach, on improvised fields. It is played barefoot, with shoes, in stadiums, as part of a team or among friends. Even the great players, Pelé, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, or Neymar began playing this way. A visitor to Brazil can find goals in the most inhospitable places, in the countryside, in cities, in the jungle, in indigenous villages or in favelas. But as the sport has turned into an industry, that playful, collective game, with its beauty born of the joy of playing for the sake of playing, has begun to disappear.
The World Cup 2014, which will be the privilege of a few and a headache for many, has sparked unprecedented organizing against FIFA. In 11 of the 12 cities that will host one of the games, social movements have united under the banner of the People’s Committees to demand that citizens’ human rights stop being violated for the sake of an event in which few will be able to participate. Members from all sectors of society and many existing social movements have joined in the organizing, including the São Paulo metro workers, who yesterday, on the eve of the cup, declared a strike to demand higher wages and protest the firing of fellow employees.

    I forced myself to switch on and watch last night’s dire game against Italy and was not surprised at the England(sic) line-up consisting of at least four blacks/mulattoes, who may be ‘British’ as far as a worthless piece of ‘anything goes’ passport piece of toilet paper is concerned but can never be considered English.

    The losing scoreline didn’t surprise me either and I suspect that these fake English wannabes hate the true English, as do the self loathing, guilt-tripped rest of the also-ran team.

    At this level of football, you have to be 100% and then some, the Country you are supposed to be representing. Mercenaries/Dogs of Football may get away with it at Club/Premiership level but not when it comes to playing for your beloved Country – which they wouldn’t know the meaning of.

    Football is a distraction for the feeble minded.

    In a sane world it would be relegated (pardon the pun ) to its true status, a game for children.

    If I got into power phnar phnar…I would ban it for over 16 yr olds lol

    Although I’m not sure if it would change things as the “heads” would probably go back to religion instead of uniting and taking down the gangsters.

    football is in a class like BBC soaps big brother and simon cowell bullshit, only for the weak minded infirm and closet homosexuals.
    Look at who buys football clubs russian mafheahwarafraidia closet jews and sheisters.
    no thanks.

  4. Sport was given to you as an outlet for your tribal instincts. The big players in the global domination game think the people are basically barbarians. Left to our own devices, we would descend into a mass of thuggery, chaos & poop. Without their wonderful institutions we would all just rape, kill, & destroy ourselves & each other. A lot of Stockholm Syndrome sufferers believe they’re right, unfortunately.

  5. You see how Bliar is saying that Iraq is descending into thuggery, chaos & poop because they aren’t there to control them? Oh yes they are. It’s a covert Middle-Eastern Gladio-style operation. It’s how they roll. They do it everywhere. It’s their M.O.

    Surprised no one has even challenged the overtly racist comments at 546 – or pointed out that England’s best players were all black.

    “Racist” — A Word Invented by USSR’s Leon Trotsky

    The term ‘racist’ was made up and then used originally by the Bolsheviks to marginalize Eastern Europe’s Slavic population, which resisted mightily against the communists.

    The word “racist” has for a long time been the single most effective fear-word in the leftist and neo-conservative arsenal. For decades, they have successfully used it in the political arena to slander traditionalists, shut down debate, and leave opponents running for cover. In the social arena, they have caused even more damage by using it to brainwash impressionable children and young college students, and to teach people to hate their nation, their cultural traditions, and worst of all, themselves.

    Also note that under FIFA’s extraordinary rules, ALL foreign players qualify to play for England (or wherever) if they have played in said country for more than five years and have never represented their own country!

    As the saying goes: “A dog born in a stable doesn’t make it a horse” and I am of the firm opinion that Blacks, those of mixed race and Asians born in England doesn’t make them English but only ‘British’ which can mean just about anything one wants it to mean these days.

    The NWO’s anti-White, anti-European, anti-English genocidal agendas are there in plain sight for anyone with ears to listen and eyes to see.

    Do you have anything to say about the article/World Cup 2014 itself?

    I’ve watched most of the New World Order’s Cup 2014 games so far and what is blindingly obvious is that teams from Black/Brown countries do not have any Whites in them – non whatsoever. It’s a case of Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians etc, White countries for everyone.
    Whites don’t go to Somalia and make out that they are Somalian in the same way Mo(hamed) Farah came to Britain (at the age of 8)and is now considered British.
    It’s not the colour of one’s skin either as far as national identity is concerned. I would make the same argument if say a German or Dutch White national (for examples) did the same thing.
    Anyone with half a brain knows what is going on here and that the genocide of the White race is the ultimate goal and NWO big picture.
    You should try to string a decent sentence and argument together instead of posting Zzzzzzzzz (Zionist or counting Sheeple?)and calling other posters silly lefty names like knuckle-dragger and the commie construct ‘waaacist’.

    It’s my guess that most of the genuine English players are not too happy with having virtual foreigners (British NOT English) playing alongside them but have no choice but to ‘keep schtum’ in these Marxist Orwellian times. One manager whose name escapes me is clearly on record (since erased from history I suspect) as saying ‘we need at least one black in the team’ or words to that effect – at the expense of a genuine England player of course. Mongrel teams like today’s England et al will never win anything again which of course is the NWO agenda.
    Can ANY of the self-loathing, guilt-tripped Whites pass the ‘classroom where their kids go’ or ‘street where they live’ test? I very much doubt it.
    Their child is the last White in a class of Black/Asian kids – a genuine scenario. The parents are all for ‘multiculturalism’ up to this point but now find there is a sting in the tail. They ask for their child to be moved and are called racist – by those who wouldn’t have their own children put in such an insidious position.
    Blacks/Asians start moving into the street and no White wants to be the last White on the block so to speak with a house they are unable to sell. Panic sets in. Is this racist?
    Would a Black King/Queen or PM be tolerated by TPTB? I doubt that Rothschild would sanction it.
