The Rugby World Cup introduction video takes us back to where it all began, Warwickshire 1823, the camera swoops past the astounding architecture of Warwickshire and we are greeted with an explosion of a bucolic England as a choral rendition of ''I vow to thee, My Country'' plucks at the patriotic heartstrings of every Englishman. Of course, by Englishmen we are, presumably, expected to include the Africans who have been strategically placed in the video as English aristocrats, in 1823, ten years before slavery was abolished (!).
Unlike Football which has historically been the sport of choice, and convenience, of the working class, Rugby emanates from the historical Middle to Upper class tier of British society. From a Cultural Marxist perspective it makes sense to have poor blacks and whites mixing it up, regardless of historical accuracy, because both are oppressed by the upper tier of society, ethnic and racial differences are merely a ''false conscience'' which must be overcome and or destroyed. However, a sport such as Rugby is the sport of those elites and the question then becomes one of how to ''modernize'' it, or how to sell it to the working class masses as something not ''elitist''. The producers hired to solve this problem have certainly taken the ball and run with it, so to speak, their solution is to turn the traditional hierarchy on its head. Prince Harry, the epitome of the modern aristocrat and ''white establishment'' appears as a gardener, while blacks appear as belonging to the 1823 ruling classes of Britain.

Obviously, you aren't supposed to nitpick like this, precisely because Cultural Marxist propaganda cannot stand up to even mild scrutiny. The purpose is to steadily drip the lie into the European psyche that European identity is multiracial and always has been. And if this means having to cast today's victim groups in the role of yesterday's oppressor, contradicting every core Leftist value, then so be it.
