Don’t Menshn Far Right Watch

Paranoia must be a terrible thing. And paranoia exhibited publicly, on view for all to see, must be infinitely worse, if only the person exhibiting it were not just aware of it, but was prepared to own up to the problem. Sadly, in the case of (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch, owning up to having any problem is out of the question. But she does give the distinct and uneasy impression of rank paranoia.

All of which brings us to a group - it’s a team effort - called Far Right Watch, which does exactly what it says on the tin, calling out the far right all the way from Combover Crybaby Donald Trump to Nigel “Thirsty” Farage to Geert Wilders to Marine le Pen and all the others who might have preferred to have lived under the past régimes of the Greek Colonels, Francisco Franco, and António de Oliveira Salazar.

So Far Right Watch may, on occasion, cover the same kinds of ground that Zelo Street does, but that is the extent of what we share. As far as I know, I’ve never met any of the Far Right Watch team, and nor have I been in touch with any of them via phone, email, Twitter DM, or by any other means. There is no connection between Zelo Street and Far Right Watch. But this thought has not been allowed to enter Ms Mensch’s head.
After Far Right Watch had made a disputed assertion about someone Ms Mensch had Retweeted, she made her first gaffe - well, first gaffe concerning this subject. Goodness knows how far advanced the Mensch gaffe totaliser has advanced by how - telling Richard Colledge “Rich, liars lie, it's what they do. Troll account sounds exactly like Obsessed Fenton to me”. Wrong. Again. On several counts. And there was more.
Under no pressure at all, Ms Mensch decided of her own volition to double down and not only make a spectacle of herself, but maximise the audience, and the subsequent ridicule, by going even more wrong: “must pretty much suck being Tim Fenton (to put it mildly) so I pay him no mind, block & ignore”. Well, as Far Right Watch isn’t me, then she isn’t paying anyone “no mind”. And, sadly, she wasn’t for listening to advice.
The Tweeter otherwise known as 872 Bastards (I’m not even thinking of asking), who clearly knows the reality of this situation, asked Ms Mensch “Do you think @Far_Right_Watch is Tim Fenton? Riiight”. But his words will fall on deaf ears: Ms Mensch is already off and running on her latest obsession, that of laying into Rosie O’Donnell, as witness the Tweet “FUCK YOU YOU DISGUST ALL MOTHERS”.
That’s in addition to all the other abuse she’s been hurling at Ms O’Donnell. But she thinks it’s others who have a problem with obsessiveness. And she can’t tell the difference between two very different Twitter presences. Louise Mensch appears to be suffering badly from the effects of being cooped up in that reassuringly expensive Manhattan apartment. Her refusal to listen to anyone or get help will not help her situation.

Now someone is out to get her. And remember, they allowed her to become an MP.

Obsessed Fenton has a certain ring to it.

I got blocked from Mensch's Twitter account within seconds of posting something mildly disagreeing with her. She couldn't signal more blatantly that she can'defend her opinions and can't handle any view that differs from her own.

Talking of paranoids.

Hiding behind the football abuse and Castro stories is this little gem:

Mensch is certainly, well, odd......but she has absolutely sweet FA on the dead old harridan Thatcher, the most appalling liar and two faced hypocrite ever to occupy even that den of liars at 10 Downing Street.

What twisted DNA is it in the tories that it produces awful women like said Thatcher, Soubry, McVey, May and Mensch?

And how does she know Tim Fenton is "obsessed" if she doesn't read him?

Yes, a very weird woman is Mensch.

Its probably the blow to her ego being kicked of shit street by Murdcock, that has caused her to go over cliff. That and the fact that hardly anyone is "liking" her tweets since she was found out to be shilling for Clinton, so wiping out her alt-reich Trump followers.

I notice she has taken to using Internet words which she thinks means something other than what they actually mean. Idiot.

"Fisking" The Secret Barrister she believes she is strenuously and intelligently debunking his argument, when in fact she is unwittingly demonstrating her less than stellar intellect:
From the Urban Dictionary:
"Fisking.... is done in a precise manner relying on semantics and ambiguities to infer a defect in the original point. This approach is tantamount to taking a sentence out of context in order to refute an entire argument.

Fisking does not pay heed to the opponent's thesis as a whole, and thus does not disprove the thesis as a whole."
