What an insufferable douche


Extansion01 t1_iwywymr wrote

That's funnily enough only one of many dumb quotes from the speech. There are also gems like Europe should apologize before handing out criticism over slavery for the next 3000 years and Western companies take money from Qatari too, so what's the matter when FIFA does it and my personal favourite, mainly used by intellectual dumpsters like India: Hypocrisy of the West.


DRSU1993 t1_iwz56zp wrote

No you don’t get it, when he was a child he was bullied for having red hair and freckles. He completely understands what it’s like to be persecuted as an LGBTQ+ person in Qatar. The “G” stands for ginger after all!

Challenge accepted, you walking PR disaster. JFC.


MageLocusta t1_iwysa8q wrote

I'd like to point out that like in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Dubai--most migrant workers in Qatar aren't allowed in public spaces like shopping centers and malls.

I'd like to see this idiot sit in a non-air conditioned room with 8 other guys, work in manual labor, and watch as people drive around to enjoy cinemas, marble-floored food courts and swimming pools. While knowing that even if he showered and put on his best shirt and set foot in those places, the security guards would immediately order him to leave.


Kriztauf t1_iwz77in wrote

According to him, Europe is really the assholes for not offering a similar system for them. Europe needs to apologize for the next 3,000 years for slavery but are also pieces of shit for not reintroducing slavery


modularpeak2552 t1_iwyjmqa wrote

i will say it was quite impressive he was able to make it up to the podium with all that qatari blood money weighing his pockets down.


Jackinthelacks t1_iwyr4rr wrote

He just borrowed some Qatari slaves to help push him up there. I'd say bought but he doesn't strike me as the type that buys things if he can get it for free....

Boycott this World Cup.

The power is in your hands.


Zen1 t1_ix94lw2 wrote

My boycott would be meaningless because I was never planning to watch it

Much too late, first game is already tomorrow. After Qatar pulled their alcohol reversal it became obvious they timed it for when it was too late for people to cancel and refund.

So he'd have been OK with apartheid South Africa hosting the 1982 World Cup?


xiconic t1_iwyt23p wrote

If people would actually attend I'm sure he would be okay with North Korea hosting the world Cup.


albatroopa t1_iwzor47 wrote

The terrible part is that people would attend.


xiconic t1_ix0v10a wrote

This is the reason I hate football. Its organisations cause huge human suffering across the world because their bribes are more important. They lavish footballers with ungodly sums of money, quite a lot of them then turn out to be rapists. Then the fans cause endless destruction with rioting, not even because their team lost half the time, just because its expected of football fans now so hey why not?


fkmeamaraight t1_ix0ets7 wrote

I mean he was bullied for having red hair, so he totally understands what black and brown people went through in apartheid South Africa.


Ksh_667 t1_ix1hgkp wrote

Well he managed to sort the red hair problem out didn't he.


Synaps4 t1_iwyidqw wrote

Technically he said "I feel a migrant worker" which is ....significantly different.

Can someone give tl;dr? I watched first 20 seconds of the press and he keep saying 'I feel this I feel that'. How hard is it to make a point across, I don't have time for interpreting crap poetry.

What an arrogant entitled prick. Folks should stop participating in these corrupt enterprises. FIFA World Cup Olympics...they are all corrupted. Quit participating in their corruption.

I don't watch kickball, I don't even really know anything about the world cup. But god DAMN this has gotta be up there with the dumbest words uttered in history.

So he stopped feeling gay? Or does he feel like a gay migrant worker now?

Hey, he's rich -- he can get booze or a migrant worker in Qatar real easy, if he asks around.

FIFA is such trash that I'm sure they've already decided which team the refs will let win. The World Cup is way below Eurovision.

You know the best way to make up for slavery in your past? Not doing it anymore. That's what we did


Textification t1_iwzov74 wrote

Dig deeper. You haven't reached six feet, yet. THEN you'll know what a migrant worker in Quatar feels like.


XeLLoTAth777 t1_ix0o0uy wrote

.....this is some 4D chess move that Im not understanding.....

.....its so removed from reality it has to be true: Infantino is is a migrant from Hell, and his temporary Earth-Visa allows him to work for FIFA.

Makes sense, now.

That would require him to think about migrant workers' feelings, which we all know he hasn't.

How about we worry about the human rights abuses happening right now, rather than torturing ourselves over what our ancestors did?
