Black Lives Matter had the establishment’s full support while rioters were burning down businesses, looting stores, attacking innocent people in the streets and killing cops but all that appears to have changed with just one tweet.

“As Israel moves forward with the annexation of the West Bank, and mainstream British politics is gagged of the right to critique Zionism, and Israel’s settler colonial pursuits, we loudly and clearly stand beside our Palestinian comrades,” the official account of the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK tweeted on Sunday. “FREE PALESTINE.”

The backlash was swift.

 

From The UK Telegraph:

Bosses at the have decided not to allow “visual symbols of support” for Black Lives Matter to be worn on screen, senior sources told The Telegraph.

It comes as a number of high-profile organisations were forced to backtrack on their support for the Black Lives Matter movement as its UK arm publicly criticised Israel

On Wednesday, Tottenham Hotspur became the first football club to publicly break with the movement after Black Lives Matter UK issued a barrage of tweets suggesting British politics had been “gagged of the right to critique Zionism”.

In a letter to a concerned fan, seen by The Telegraph, executive director Donna-Maria Cullen said the club’s Jewish chairman Daniel Levy had been “equally disappointed” by the tweets.

“It is unacceptable that a value-based action is being hijacked by those with their own political agenda,” Ms Cullen wrote.

Incidentally, on Wednesday even President Trump came out hard against Black Lives Matter by calling it a “symbol of hate” after refusing to directly criticize it for weeks.
