But this ‘Guardian’ editorial deserves a special mention for the sheer brazen chutzpah it displays:
Although we are fortunate to live in times that are not quite as divisive, this sort of conduct is a reminder of where it can lead when one section of society sneers at another.Yeeeeeees, there’s absolutely no ‘sneering at others’ allowed in the pages of the ‘Guardian’, ever, is there?
The paper that continually regales us with diatribes against ‘the rich’, ‘bankers and their bonuses’, ‘climate change deniers’, ‘US Republican voters’, ‘Catholic priests and their cover-ups’….
And there I'd have left it, sick of the mawkish griefwhores and the rolling compensation bandwagon of it all, if not for two things, yesterday afternoon.
First, while many people commented at Anna's post and took exception to what she'd read, there was one obsessive, creepy, threatening little individual who was not content to simply disagree and then go away, and decided to resort to the sort of threatening behaviour that we've come to expect from a certain section of society:
All this while the embassies in several Middle Eastern countries were battening down the hatches. What's the difference, really, between the hordes there and the fruitcakes here?
Then, on Twitter, this was ReTweeted into my timeline:
Yes, this character was Tweeting that he'd got someone the sack for something he'd written on Twitter. He was proud of it.
So, I checked this character out. Who would do such a thing, and why?
Ahhh, yes. An anonymous account, styling himself on a famous film.
Doing anything useful or funny with it? No. Sadly not. Just some sort of half-assed 'avenger' determined to ensure that everyone has only one opinion on the Hillsborough tragedy, and it better agree with his, or else!
I can't wait for 'Taken 3', when Liam's character hunts down the bad guys and...complains to their bosses they've been mean to others on Twitter in an effort to get them sacked, like the sad, inadequate little whiny-assed bitch this idiot must see every time he looks in the mirror.
I'm sure it'll be a blockbuster!
