Troy Southgate on the Poppy and Remembrance Day

"Prior to the first Gulf War I would always wear a red poppy at this time of year, because it honoured the memory of those who had no choice but to go to war on behalf of the ruling class and who had died so needlessly. Today, however, it is used for purely propagandistic purposes and the money goes back into the military establishment and also helps those who, of their own volition, willingly chose to serve the vested interests of those behind the current globalist agenda." - Troy Southgate, Nov 6, 2011.

"Woe to those who refuse to bow their heads in the face of British imperialism. This annual
spectacle - at least as far as the State is concerned - has nothing whatsoever to do with remembrance, but concerns the reinforcement and perpetuation of global tyranny." - Troy Southgate, Nov 12, 2012.

"Now that you've worn your poppies with pride and
swallowed the Establishment's pseudo-nationalistic deception hook, line and sinker, it is time to pick up the tab..." - Troy Southgate, Nov 13, 2014

"Having defied an order from FIFA not to wear Remembrance Day poppies on their sleeves during international matches, due to the flower's 'political' significance, the football associations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have just received fines totalling £80,000. Now, whilst I personally stopped wearing a poppy some years ago due to the fact that it is becoming increasingly associated with mercenaries who willingly engage in modern combat, rather than the poor souls who had little choice but to fight in the carnage of the First World War, it is clear that in their attempts to stop the politicisation of football FIFA is actually helping to politicise it. A few years ago, when I worked for a football club, I refused to wear a large badge saying "Kick Racism Out of Football" and my decision certainly raised a few eyebrows. As I explained to the club itself, however, this did not mean that I was a 'racist', only that I had neither seen nor heard any racism whatsoever at any of our games for at least 30 years and therefore saw the wearing of the badge as a political act and I believe that politics has no place in football. Not least, because the people behind such campaigns encourage violence against their political opponents. Meanwhile, at the end of November players from the world of football and rugby were asked to wear coloured laces in their boots in support of people from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) backgrounds. Whether it is FIFA or the FA, they are only happy when they are forcing their own views down the throats of others." - Troy Southgate, Dec 19, 2016.

"The levels of public conformity on Remembrance Day are often quite astounding and yesterday I saw one outraged individual in a forum condemning shop workers for not standing still and observing the customary two-minute silence for victims of war. For those of you outside Europe, this tradition takes place annually at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, as a way of marking the end of the First World War in 1918. At one time, I would never be seen without my obligatory red poppy at this time of year and have always remembered the poor buggers who were slaughtered for the Big Business interests of London and Berlin during both of the major conflicts. However, once Remembrance Day became increasingly more political and extended its scope beyond those who were forcibly conscripted in 1914-18 and 1939-45 by including the 'victims' who died fighting for Zionist interests during the Gulf War, the Falklands conflict and various other globalist outrages, I stopped wearing the poppy altogether. Whilst I still feel sorrow at the thought that so many Europeans died in vain in the first half of the twentieth century, and all of our forebears were affected in one way or another, financing the so-called 'Help for Heroes' campaign or feeling patriotic at the sight of hypocritical royalty placing wreaths at the cenotaph means offering our support to those modern mercenaries who fight not for justice or freedom but for imperialism, profit and the ruling class. We certainly don't need a Remembrance Day to refresh our memories and, one day soon, those who were blown to pieces, sent into torrents of flying metal, shot for desertion and cowardice or simply jailed for having divergent beliefs shall be avenged. So yes, a very conditional "Requiescat in pace" to all those who had no choice in the matter." - Troy Southgate, Nov 12, 2017.
