Germany’s Anti-Vaccination History Is Riddled With Anti-Semitism

  Germany’s Anti-Vaccination History Is Riddled With Anti-Semitism Jewish people were blamed for spreading disease, and considered expendable victims.Over the past year, Germany’s sprawling anti-lockdown movement has brought together a disquieting alliance of ordinary citizens, both left- and right-leaning, and extremists who see the pandemic response as part of a wider conspiracy. In August, nearly 40,000 protesters gathered in my neighborhood to oppose the government’s public-health measures, including the closure of stores and mask mandates. It was unnerving to hear German chants of “Fascism in the guise of health” from my window, and all the more given that the same day, a subgroup of those protesters charged Parliament.

Manchester United have reportedly missed out on a new training kit deal worth £200million over 10 years due to concerns over the anti-Glazers campaign.

United were meant to replace AON with Myprotein, a Cheshire firm owned by Manchester-based company The Hut Group, as one of their sponsors.

However, Richard Arnold - United’s group managing director - announced The Hut Group had pulled out of the contract which was due to start on July 1.

According to The Observer, THG have pulled out of the deal due to concerns over the club's attempted boycott of the United owners and their partners.

  IAN LADYMAN: The Glazers are not listening and never will IAN LADYMAN: For those familiar with the structural decline of Old Trafford during the years of Glazer ownership, the ease with which supporters entered Man United's stadium will not have been a surprise. There have been holes in the roof of the Main Stand for years. Maybe the doors no longer have locks either.What a sad spectacle, nevertheless. © Provided by Daily Mail ( © Provided by Daily Mail ( Towards the end of season played without fans, this was something new, something even more depressing.

The Glazers have recently been targeted by United supporters over the club's failed bid to join the now defunct European Super League.

The fans expressed their frustration at the American owners by storming Old Trafford ahead of United's clash with Liverpool.

Hundreds of fans protested outside the stadium, while a select few even made their way into the stadium.

As a result, Manchester United's Premier League fixture against the Reds was postponed.

  Ask Crouchie! Sportsmail's Peter Crouch responds to YOUR questions Another remarkable weekend in a season like no other has left PETER CROUCH fielding questions on title triumphs, empty stadiums and England call-ups. But Old Trafford is the only place to start for Sportsmail's resident columnist — though not for footballing reasons…Have you ever been in a situation where a game was called off so late?Jim Kelly via emailThe only instances I remember, Jim, were based around bad weather and pitch inspections.

An anonymous group took to Twitter to call for a boycott of the club’s major partners - Adidas, TAG Heuer and Cadbury - using the hashtag NOTAPENNYMORE.

Having seen the campaign on social media, THG were worried they would be targeted by fans in Greater Manchester.

Therefore, the multibillion pound company - who are located near Manchester Airport - pulled out of the deal.

The decision will come as a blow to United - who will see their contract with AON expire on 30 June.

According to the Observer, both THG and Manchester United have declined to comment.
