The 2022 World Cup isn’t even over yet, and we’re already getting complaints about the 2026 tournament. 

The United States, Canada, and Mexico will co-host the next World Cup, but BBC broadcaster Gary Lineker already thinks this is a bad idea because of how racist of a nation we apparently are.

“And we’re off to America in four years’ time, with Canada and Mexico, but obviously America’s an extraordinarily racist country. So, there’s always issues but it was more the fact that we just pointed out a few facts,” Lineker said

Virtue-signaling before tournaments seems to be one of Lineker’s favorite things to do. Before the 2022 tournament, he criticized Qatar’s sketchy human right’s record, though he had no qualms about showing up to the tournament and making bank for calling games.

Furthermore, from 2009-2013, Lineker worked for the Qatari broadcasting company Al Jazeera and covered Champions League games for the state-owned network. He earned roughly 400,000 pounds and was treated to five star hotels and first class flights.

So it seems like Lineker is just like any woke virtue-signaler: criticize an institution and be self-righteous when it makes you money, but ignore those same things to earn money if you have to.

Maybe he’s just salty that his Three Lions were held to an unexpected 0-0 draw against the U.S. at this World Cup and is looking to take his frustration out in any way he can. Regardless, it's going to be fun hearing what this prat has to say about the U.S. in the build up to the tournament.
