Can anyone really be this stupid?

CAuYIrCWYAAEUwH

In these days of CCTV, you have to wonder if anyone can be so numbskulledly thick as to carry out that piece of theatre yesterday.

Farage was at a pub, having Sunday lunch. A mob burst into the pub and intimidated his family. The interesting thing for me is that these below were not Mail commenters, they were at the Lib Dem Independent:

# It does seem like “rent a mob”. The left have so far illegally smashed Ukip windows, spray painted Ukip billboards, torn down Ukip signs on private property and so far now have a large tally of mob attacks.

Welcome to left-wing PC Britain composed of fascists who pretend to be anti-fascists.

# Tolerance… always demanded by the left only they’re the most intolerant bunch of scumbags themselves. As for this communist rag, would you expect a measured headline?

And of course, the LibLabCon trolls came in and tried to defend the mob, to which one commenter replied:

# “Shame he is getting some of his behaviour back isn’t it.”

Yes, Farage often goes with a mob to pubs on a Sunday afternoon where politicians are with their families and intimidates them and their children.

“Perhaos he shouls”

When you learn English, let me know.

Guardian readers were out in force, saying, “Ha ha ha,” “Serves him right,”  “Getting some of his own violence back,” “Farage, if you can’t stand the heat …”  These Guardianisti truly are a breed apart.  How completely removed from the whole political debate today they are.

Moving to the Mail, this was the tenor of the comments, as you’d expect:

Nigel Farage is now leading a major party with lots of support around the country and should have police protection. The other party leaders do not have to put up with this harassment so why should he, especially when he is out with his family.

But there wasn’t, was there?  There was zero police presence, let alone protection.  I recall exactly the same sort of thing where police allowed United Activists of Fascism  to physically intimidate Tommy Robinson instead of their duty which was to keep the two groups apart.  Then, with no other violence happening, they arrested Tommy Robinson.

And here’s the man who organized yesterday’s mayhem.  A Polish immigrant who doesn’t work.  Also occasionally writes for … you guessed it … the Guardian.

iain dale left fascism

For me, far more disgraceful was The Telegraph.  For a start, there was no comments thread – at least the Mail, which used the very same text for their version, left comments on.  They opened with how Farage had been “chased down the street” as if he was a coward running away.  Actually, the mob chased the car and a woman jumped over the bonnet.  Who’ll pay for that damage?

Where are the arrests?

The pub itself did nothing to stop the mob invading and wouldn’t say a word.

The Telegraph then spent about 3/8 of the article giving the chief harrasser a forum to make political comments about Farage’s politics.  Is that responsible journalism?  Do you give the criminal a forum and the victim nothing?

As if on cue, an American tweeter supplied the answer:

terrorist victim

It then said Farage suggested “taxpayer funded” protection.  He never said that.  He said police protection, just as other major leaders have.  And as for whether he’s a major leader or not, anyone recall the elections last year and the two by-elections, plus the council gains?

So if he’s a major party leader, what the hell is he doing in the shameful TV debates as just one of the also-rans?  Why is he not taking on the other three directly?  Even the media runs these four as the main parties.

And the most dismaying thing is that polls show that around 67% of those voting are intending voting for one of the two most corrupt parties.   Where is there logic in any of this?

Democracy

It also raises certain questions about who has the vote and who doesn’t.  Look at that rent-a-mob at the top again and the question of suffrage becomes a very real one.  And what of a party which advocates physical intimidation of other party leaders and supporters?  How is this different to the Nazi intimidation in the 20s and 30s?  Is it that they haven’t burnt down the Reichstag yet?

    Are any of us still relatively normal folk in the least surprised, does anyone seriously expect a single shred of decency or standard of behaviour to be found in that ugly little bunch.

    It’s a crime that Farage’s family, especially his young children had to be put through that, but don’t hold your breath waiting for the current police service to do their duty, you’ll be pushing up daisies first.

    If anything this type of crass hooliganism should serve to stiffen the resolve of the decent majority of people, hopefully manifesting itself as another boost for UKIP votes.

    That Zit character looks quite cosy there beside our future prime minister Chukka, presumably he’ll be quick to condemn such cowardly and bullying behaviour…listen out for His words of wisdom, possibly awaiting further instruction from lucifer Blair.

    Most kids these days morally, spiritually, intellectually do not know which way is up – do they?

    Too many years of Marxist indoctrination at skool and by idiot teechurs who do not know much about aught. Teachers, trained in one of those God awful Marxist teacher training colleges, the blind leading attempting to inculcate and whether by design or ignorance thus infantilizing with a constant drip feed of left wing propaganda does its work, most kids leave functionally illiterate and innumerate. Plus, whether they can read or write – some waste another three years in some other God awful Tertiary agitprop – the UK educational conveyor line produces more than enough “useful idiots”.
    A media onslaught across all the sort of propaganda outlets these children watch, simplified pap and all left wing persuasions and how they do paint Farage as some sort of Beelzebub, a frothing devil who needs to be righteously thrashed by the forces of ‘good’. Kicked and family as well it looks, by extension the leaders of Utopian dreamland in the scum party and its affiliates in the unions with their indirectly funding of the Marxist paramilitary wing the SWP/Hope not hate/UAF et al.

    The police?

    What a jest it is for them, all feminazis that they’ve turned into.

    The diversity service – are not on Farage’s side. Actually, if one thinks back to the last great meeting of the unwashed at the Balcombe fracking festival and OIL rig drill test site, the police very heavily favoured the green-anti democracy faction, some girls in blue were quoted saying as much.

    Farage, because coppers are more concerned and involved in protecting rich Arabs up the ‘west end’, he probably wants to hire some private security – a few ex special forces surely would be up for it?

    If Farage were to hire some personal protection, the next time he is attacked, our highly politicised idiot police will arrive and arrest his protection, and probably him as well. The real thugs will be ignored again. It is getting like Hitler’s Germany, or Stalin’s Russia.

    I can just imagine had this been Ed millipede and his family and the EDL had done such a thing the mass call by the MSM to have them hung drawn and quartered.
    It has always been my attestation that there is nowt so intolerant as those who claim to be tolerant, because actually they are a bunch of rabid bigots, and it would seem yesterday’s attack (because that’s what it was ) on Farage and his family is endemic of our “tolerant society”.
    So basically provided we all follow the PC’ist communist agenda everything in the Garden is lovely.
    Had anyone carried out an attack like this on Nick Clegg (I use him as an example because after this election he could find himself in Farage’s position)there would have been arrests. If Farage was the bigoted nasty piece of work many would have us believe then he would have gone straight to the police and insisted on arrests, which is what ALL other politicians would have done, so clearly he is not as intolerant as we are led to believe.

    Two developments.

    1. Independent running high on the page plus Google News some “far right” group endorsing UKIP. They never miss a chance, do they?

    2. Marine Le Pen’s eclipsing by UMP on their first round is being seized on over here by the Tories and the MSM. I’ve not got far with that yet as my French language is rusty. The usual stalwart, le Figaro, being an UMP paper, is not much use at this time.

    It would be sad if the things said about UKIP which are blatantly false clouded people’s voting. I’ve no problem with UKIP going down on their policies as they’ve stated but not on beat-ups.

    If Farage had spent the last sixteen years in the UK instead of skulking in Brussels he would have learnt long ago that this is how it is in this shithole of a country. He has deliberately cut himself off from reality.
    Violence is the reality. Labour MPs wear body armour even when they are meeting their own constituents!

    Over at Bishop Hill the comments dig out several more green lefties who appear to be afraid the gravy train of climate change might hit the buffers if Nigel has a say.

    James, for your information and I am gonna be polite this time, Marine Le Pen’s Front national is a left wing political party which espouses protectionism and very nationalistic pro French policies including removing themselves from the euro. Good for them I say!

    I salute and wish Marine every success and admire her immensely madame Le Pen but on politics, we stand on opposite banks.

      Economically, yes, she is Left wing. That doesn’t work. Socially she is right wing, which does.

      Farage is economcially Right (I think) and socially centre ground. The communist wasters hate that though. They just want someone else to pay for their existence.

  9. March 23, 2015 at 3:06 pm

    Yes, appears to be little we can take from what’s going on across the channel.

  10. March 23, 2015 at 4:45 pm

    Ironically these attacks will backfire at the ballot box. So long as Farage shows a little backbone and sticks to his guns his party will make further inroads into the mainstream vote.

    Physically attacking a politician (and his family – really bad move) whose popularity is growing only helps increase the victims popularity. This is a political principle so simple that only a brain dead extremist would ignore it. Ergo, we must assume that the activists are effectively brain dead.

    the usual delightful bundle of wasters, thugs and bullies, all troughing away at someone else’s expense.

    She should be sacked for her involvement as it is obvious an incitement to assault.
