People who live in grass houses...
One of the less endearing characteristics of the Righteous Left is their unshakable belief that not only is their view of the world the correct one but that it is the only possible view that a sane and decent person could conceivably ever take. All other views are therefore not rationally-reached positions that the Righteous happen to disagree with but are actively perverse, either wilfully evil or alternatively born of ignorance and stupidity. Being decent folk who want to think the best of people, they lean rather kindly towards the latter interpretation. The Unrighteous are thus generally thought of as being largely uneducated and/or thick and the Righteous take great delight in finding confirmation of this in any poor spelling, bad punctuation and outright misuse of words in comments and posts by "far-right knuckledraggers", which is pounced upon and held up for knowing ridicule.
It's a dangerous game to play, though, because the apostrophe nazi has to meet his own scrupulously high standards or else, to put it in the vernacular, he's going to end up looking a right bleedin' nana, inn'ee?
EDL News, despite its misleading name, is an anti-EDL website. It's partly a twitterscraping site whose authors spend their time prowling the social networks looking for tweets and Faceache posts that can be exaggerated or wilfully misinterpreted into some damning revelation about the EDL and its supporters. This is a widespread technique also favoured by Little Nicky Lowles' in-house thugs Cressy and Collins at Hate not Hope.
One of EDL News' recent efforts concerns some EDL tart called Trudie Toker. Now I have no comment to make about Ms Toker. I know nothing about her. To be honest, if there's any truth in the article, she doesn't look like a particularly appealing sort to have as a neighbour. Let's leave it at that. But I can't resist screenshotting the following below the line comment in which two of the Righteous gloat self-satisfiedly over Ms Toker's angry, inarticulate and ill-spelt Faceache posts.
A basic tenant of patriotism, eh, AFS?
Pompous illiterate little fuck. Beware of unexpectedly exploding petards is my advice, dear fellow.
The 'enlightened' are obviously unfamiliar with the concept of tautology.
Bullseye once again Edwin. For amusement I visit Harry's Place occasionally- some of their comment threads are a veritable car crash between two variants of righteous leftist bile. The pro Zionist, pro interventionist stuff predominates, but what really brings them to boiling point is when the anti zionist/pacifist inclined commenters get holier than thou about some of the more blatant emissions of Jewish nationalism. These threads usually degenerate into mutual exhortations of 'go forth & multiply' being tossed across the ideological barricades. Nice.
Talking of which....
Same at Socialist Disunity.
I must say Trudie Toker is a terrific name. Sounds like a drug-crazed porn starlet.
