I have never gotten addicted to cricket even though we have lived in a Commonwealth nation for well over forty years now. Be that as it may many are Cricket fans but unfortunately Cricket has now gone WOKE. This is from New South Wales’ One Nation state member Mark Latham’s Facebook page.
‘FROM THE OUTER AT THE SCG YESTERDAY, SOME OBSERVATIONS: 1. Test cricket has signed a suicide note, in thinking that fans will pay $100 a seat for 13 overs/hour, endless orange vests on the ground wasting time, Pujara/Vihari batting like statues, with larrikin barracking to alleviate the boredom now banned. 2. The Indian fans yesterday in front of the Trumper Stand were giving it to Tim Paine big-time for his dropped catches, with funny songs and chanted slogans. Paine heard the razz and turned around. If he was as thin-skinned and spoilt as Mohammed Siraj, he could have screamed ‘offence’ and had the fans ejected from the ground. But barracking like this is actually part of the entertainment at the ground, especially during boring periods of play. I say ‘well done’ the Bharat Army and Tim Paine. 3. It says so much about the media elites that, with absolutely no evidence, they are still trying to fit up those guys at the SCG on Sunday as racists. The elites want and need racism to verify their own warped, hateful view of Australia. Where none exists, they simply invent it. As they did with Adam Goodes, and now Siraj. 4. Three different groups of fans near the ‘Siraj incident’ on Sunday (including Indian fans) have now come forward to say there was no racial content. Yet NSW Labor’s Jodi McKay is calling for life bans on these innocent fans. She will always barrack for other countries ahead of the rights and freedoms of Australians. 5. The tragedy of today’s cricket commentary is its lack of authenticity, as we found out when Shane Warne and Roy Symonds gave us their real views, believing themselves to be off-air. Why do people live a double existence, muffling their own free speech, for the sake of false niceties? I will never understand.’https://www.facebook.com/MarkLathamsOutsiders/?ref=page_internal
