Priti Patel slams BLM after being asked if she would falling in line with Celebrities and Politicians by taking the Knee.
On LBC this morning, Priti Patel said that she would not have taken the Knee to support Black Lives Matter.
A caller who phoned in to the show asked the Home Secretary if she would fall in line with other celebrities and political figures by taking the Knee to support Black Lives Matter.
The Home Secretary returned by slamming BLM for their hand in the riots last summer. Priti said: “Last summer was quite a moment with all the protest that we saw taking place.
“We saw policing as well as coming under a great deal of pressure from some of the protest. I don’t support protest, and I also did not support the protests that were associated…”
When asked if she would take the Knee, Priti said “No, I would not. I would not have at the time either.
“There are other ways in which people can express their opinions. Protesting in the way in which people did last summer was not the right way at all.”
Still today, we see football players supporting the BLM who want “the abolition of the police” (Go Fund-me page describes BLM’s demands).
