Asks where tolerance has gone ...
But the MoS would not be the MoS without playing both sides of the field, and so it has commissioned racist bigot Doug Murray The K to write for them, or, put more directly, pour some petrol on the flames. Doug says yesterday’s behaviour was bad, BUT. Yes, that’s a BIG BUT. “But the rioting was all too predictable from the moment the police, politicians and other prominent figures decided to indulge the Black Lives Matters (BLM) demonstrations all around Britain last weekend”. No-one “indulged” BLM.
Continuing his attempt at mass gaslighting, Murray tells “At the start, many of the BLM campaigners had a noble cause. Yet”. That’s “Yet” as in interchangeable with “But”. And on he goes. “Yesterday, the police behaved as they should … But where were they last weekend? The politicians were calling the protestors ‘peaceful’ or even praising them”.
... then runs a column by Him
That’s because they were overwhelmingly peaceful. But go on, Oracle of the increasingly alt-right Spectator magazine, tell us Who Done It. “What we are seeing is nothing less than an attempt to reshape Britain in the image of militant groups and the ideologues of the Far-Left. And to do so they are crushing debate and punishing dissent using classic tactics of moral intimidation”. No debate, except all the stuff in the MoS. And other papers.
What happened yesterday was bugger all to do with the “far left”. A load of fascist thugs got tanked up and kicked off. And what makes them think they have licence to do that is to hide behind the idea that they are “protecting our statues”. Yes, the MoS is playing that angle, too: “The Mail on Sunday today calls on our readers to help block any attempt to remove the statue of Sir Winston Churchill from outside the Houses of Parliament”.
James O’Brien added “Maybe ask why you chose this picture for your splash [white male punches black male] instead of one showing police officers being attacked & spat at or a man urinating on PC Palmer’s memorial. You’re trying to turn it into a race war when it’s really between what’s decent & what’s disgusting. But you know this”.
HERE) which shows in some detail the MoS’ daily stablemate’s “othering” of “Migrants”, “Foreigners”, a “Crowded” country, “Can’t Speak English”, and “Benefits”. Which both Daily and Sunday title make no effort to separate from “people who are not white”. Someone does indeed want a race war. Had it been otherwise, they would not have gone to Doug Murray The K for a column.
What has become of tolerant Britain? Ask some of your hacks. Then say sorry,
