The cancel culture unleashed by Black Lives Matter and their media backers has now spread beyond statues and TV comedy.  The Rugby Football Union is planning a review on whether to ban the popular terrace anthem Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and Uncle Ben's rice is to remove the black farmer from its famous logo.

Once again the BLM Marxist trend is following a similar pattern to the US.  Earlier this week it was revealed that the US-based Aunt Jemima syrup brand would be removing the black lady from its logo and changing its name.  The brand has maintained its name and logo for 130 years, but now suddenly its origins are deemed too offensive.

Trevor Phillips, the former head of the Commission for Racial Equality, lashed out at the RFU's decision to review Swing Low, Sweet Chariot...

While the mainstream media has ignored such views, and the understandable anger of England rugby fans, they have been very busy this morning talking up a supporter of the review - former England rugby player Martin Offiah.  However, Offiah is not supporting a ban, as the following interview with TalkRadio's Julia Hartley-Brewer shows.

The mainstream media is once again supporting the Marxist culture zealots, but unlike the censorship of TV shows and products such as Uncle Ben's - which is out of the control of consumers - the RFU will be hard pushed to stop tens of thousands of England supporters singing an anthem they have belted out for decades.  We have seen sporting capitulation on football pitches this week with 'taking the knee' before games in scenes reminiscent of Nazi Germany, something that the FA has been able to introduce without embarrassment as there are no fans present to make their feelings known.  However, the re-introduction of fans to the sporting arena could throw a spanner in the works and it will be interesting to see how the authorities will drown out dissenting voices.
