Over in the U.K., it appears legendary politician and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has been booted from his LBC radio show program over critical remarks he’d made about the increasingly radical Black Lives Matter movement.
The remarks started Sunday with the following tweet that took aim at the Black Lives Matter-affiliated terrorists who’ve been toppling British statues and attacking police officers:
A new form of the Taliban was born in the UK today. Unless we get moral leadership quickly our cities won’t be worth living in.
— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) June 7, 2020
During an appearance two days later on “Good Morning Britain,” Farage beefed with far-left activist Shola Mos-Shogbamimu and far-left commentator Piers Morgan over the toppling of British slave trader Edward Colston’s statue in Bristol.
“If you want to remove statues, if want to change your architecture, then you do that democratically and sensibly,” Farage argued, adding that Colton had used the money he’d earned from slave-trading to become a “big philanthropist.”
Everybody else on the panel disagreed.
Watch the heated discussion below:
Mos-Shogbamimu was displeased by Farage’s argument.
“Nigel Farage embodies what is wrong with this country,” she said. “He exemplifies how some white people will whitewash the oppression of black people as their own so that they can accuse [Black Lives Matter] of an anti-white agenda.”
She also took aim at his Taliban tweet, accusing it of inciting “hate among racists and white supremacists.”
“There is no justification for statues that immortalize slavery, immortalize British imperialism to remain standing,” she said. “It has no historical benefit. It embodies the racism that black people experience today.”
Later that afternoon on Twitter, Farage accurately described Black Lives Matter as a “far left Marxist organisation that wants to abolish the police and dismantle capitalism.”
Black Lives Matter is a far left Marxist organisation that wants to abolish the police and dismantle capitalism.
That won’t change just because 4 other panelists tried to shout down the truth on GMB this morning.

Combined, his remarks triggered a widespread backlash from left-wing radicals, despite them being based in actual truths:
Black Lives Matter’s agenda: abolish capitalism, the police, and the values of western democracy.

Now fast-forward to Wednesday, when Farage signed off on his radio program by saying, “I’m back tomorrow at six.”
Yet hours later the next morning, LBC radio posted a tweet announcing that Farage “is stepping down … with immediate leave.”
Nigel Farage’s contract with LBC is up very shortly and, following discussions with him, Nigel is stepping down from LBC with immediate effect. We thank Nigel for the enormous contribution he has made to LBC and wish him well.
— LBC (@LBC) June 11, 2020
While the LBC portrayed Farage’s exit as just a contract issue, the evidence points to him having been purposefully ousted for daring to speak ill of the world’s new Black Lives matter religion/cult.
It would certainly fit with what’s been happening everywhere ever since the ongoing cultural revolution erupted into being following Minneapolis black man George Floyd’s death.
“University of Michigan professor Justin Wolfers and dozens of other academics are leading a massive effort to have a senior faculty member at the University of Chicago removed from his position at the world’s preeminent economics journal — all because he criticized Black Lives Matter’s push to defund police departments,” Fox News reported Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a Mississippi nurse was fired for referring to looters and rioters as “thugs,” a California radio show host was fired for saying “All Lives Matter,” a Catholic high school teacher was fired for criticizing Black Lives Matter, etc., etc., etc.
The examples go on for days, though few could have predicted that even a man like Farage would fall victim to the irrational madness.
Of course, he hasn’t allowed the madness to slow him down.
Case in point:
I’m live on @talkRADIO at 10am.

Posted early Friday morning, the tweet made it clear that the Brexit leader had no intention of allowing his voice to be silenced.
Likewise, plenty of his fans have made it clear they don’t intend to sit by idly as the LBC sticks it to him.
BIG mistake letting @Nigel_Farage go. His show was one of the few reasons I listened in. Many others will now feel the same.

You have lost a once loyal listener.
LBC now also no longer balanced in its presenting.
I will only be one of many who see you have joined the ranks of the BBC.
