As the news spread yesterday through the last vestige of democracy (twitter) that England’s “best technical bid ever” had been defeated in the first round, the reaction from the press was predictable. Working as tools of the conspiracy, they helped build FIFA’s presentation up, turning cameras on the spectacle, liveblogging, livetweeting, and covering the event from every conceivable angle. Since they built the English people’s expectations so intricately, they were of course the perfect people to then cover the downfall. Which is exactly how the press do the bidding of the folks who really run the world. Folks like Sepp Blatter, a known 4th level Illuminatists.
Martin Samuel’s column yesterday was perhaps the best example of the pressrage that follows whenever a writer discovers that he’s just a tool: FICK FUFA he basically says. Typical.
What Samuel missed in the hype to hype the hype is that according to my inside sources, FIFA don’t care about how “technically good” a bid is, or if a country’s bid would bring in more money, and they don’t care a lick about whether a country has the infrastructure to host a World Cup. The only thing they care about is whether the country can be used to further their agenda.
Some folks point to the teetotaling laws in Qatar as a bone of contention but there are other, much bigger, problems with the country that have been glossed over by the international press conspiracy. How about the fact that the US ranked them as a Tier 3 country in regards to human trafficking? Tier 3 countries are those rare places where a country basically turns a blind eye to slavery.
And we all know how Sepp Blatter feels about slavery,
In football, there’s too much modern slavery, in transferring players or buying players here and there and putting them somewhere. We are trying now to intervene in such cases. The reaction to the Bosman law was to make long-lasting contracts in order to keep the players. Then, if he wants to leave, there is only one solution: he has to pay his contract.
He was referring to Manchester United’s slave ownership of multimillionaire Christiano Ronaldo. It’s a well documented fact that Sir Alex Ferguson has a mind control ray that he uses on players. That mind ray is how he gets his opponents to score own goals and the refs to add so much extra time at the end of a match if United need a goal. Blatter’s message about slavery spoke directly to this mind ray and the effects it was having on the long suffering Ronaldo.
In the same way that Qatar is notorious for human trafficking, Russia is notorious for their fan’s overt racism. Zenit St. Petersburg who’s former manager admitted that he discriminated against black players just won the League in Russia. How does this sit with Blatter? At the last World Cup in South Africa he declared:
Football is a mirror of our society and is touched by its vices. Violence, cheating, doping, betting, discrimination and racism, these are all in our game. We have started to eliminate them, one is practically eliminated — this is doping.But here in this World Cup in South Africa, and specifically through this Congress, we declare we are against discrimination. Never, never again should we have any problems on any football field or in a stadium concerning discrimination or racism. If we are not able to do that through this 60th FIFA Congress, then we never will. We must end discrimination and racism.
So here we have two very direct quotes from the head of FIFA, himself, against both racism and slavery and yet the selection committee selected both countries with problematic history in both areas.
It left me scratching my head until I realized the genius of the plan: by holding the World Cup in the countries of two of the worst offenders, Blatter is drawing attention to the problems in order to stamp them out!
Qatar and Russia won the right to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups not because of bribery, or because they have a compliant press corps, or because they plan to build some amazingly amazing stadiums, nor because world power has shifted from the West to the BRIC countries, but because these two countries offer a unique opportunity for FIFA.
This is FIFAs chance to hold the world’s most spectacular sporting event in the countries of two of the worst offenders for two of the main human rights campaigns that FIFA care most about: slavery and racism.
By putting the spotlight on these two countries’ problems, Blatter clearly hopes that they will turn over a new leaf and eschew their evil ways. According my my sources on the Nobel Prize committee, Sepp Blatter is the front runner to win the Nobel Peace Prize for this plan.
