Nor is deletion of the offending Tweets, the first one picked up on yesterday telling her followers “By pandering to the BLM, a Marxist, fascist movement, the BBC is hammering one of the few remaining nails into its own coffin and increasing the likelihood of a real race war … It’s become the Globalist Broadcasting Corporation with no regard for British values”. So says someone who works for Tory MP Greg Clark.
Note also the whiff of anti-Semitism with the “globalist” tag, which makes another deleted Tweet rather more interesting. “I just wonder how an unpleasant antisemite like [Kerry Anne] Mendoza is still allowed to keep a Twitter account”. Ms Mendoza’s partner is Jewish. But Ms Wallersteiner is at least consistent, as in consistently going after black people.
Which brings us to another example of her consistency: “It’s depressing that the liberal world order is more likely to bestow a Nobel Peace Prize to Alicia Garza, founder of Black Lives Matter, a Marxist, crypto fascist movement, than President Trump for his herculean efforts in normalising relations between Israel and the UAE”.
One can only wonder at the strength of whatever they sup chez Wallersteiner. Quite apart from the defamation of BLM, the Beeb, and Kerry Anne Mendoza, the idea that Combover Crybaby Donald Trump makes efforts of any kind - let alone “herculean” ones - on the behalf of anyone other than Himself Personally Now is for the birds.
When she was called out for calling BLM “fascist”, Ms Wallersteiner deleted her Tweets, but did not recant or apologise. So Louise Raw, who you can tell as she’s a doctor, decided to make an official complaint, given We The People are paying her stipend. At this point, there was an outburst of victimhood. It was all the Rotten Lefties’™ fault!
“Twitter embodies freedom of speech. Cancel culture is corrosive. Who wants to live in a world of homogenised views and self censorship. I abhor racism in all its forms. A personal Twitter account is a platform to express an individuals’ views. This is harassment”. Ms Wallersteiner was being cancelled! She was being harassed! She wasn’t racist!
And she wanted it to stop. “On reflection I should have been more guarded in my comments and using the word fascism was inappropriate. However the tirade of abuse which has followed constitutes harassment and trolling. Please desist”. Somehow, she missed that teensy fact: she is on the public payroll.
Just to prove she wasn’t racist, this morning brought a coda: "Yesterday was tough. We can’t all be [Laurence Fox] [!]. There are real life consequences for what you put on here. Cancel culture is deeply harmful and we must push against it. But, for now mere mortals, think before you Tweet”. No-one is cancelling her. But she is a Parliamentary staffer. Who should abide by the appropriate code of conduct. Like all her Parliamentary colleagues.
The right exists in a perpetual state of victimhood. No change there, then.
