The consequence of over a decade of syncopated Islam-baiting has been a pronounced political turn to the Right, especially on questions of immigration, nationality and ‘race’. Coterminously, ‘Britishness’ has increasingly been merged with militarism. The ultimate test of one’s integration, one’s loyalty to ‘British values’, is to fight for said values. The ultimate proof of one’s betrayal is to insult the soldiers who defend them. One can be against war, on the ground that it is too much benevolence for an undeserving mob, but one can’t denounce the troops themselves.
- The TV is adverts; “documentaries” about people who eat too much or too little, or who don’t throw enough of their stuff away; QVC; cop shows
- Facebook, after a soldier is beheaded in a London street, brings out the closet bigots and associated simpletons among your “friends”
- The “news” is idiotic drivel designed to deliver you to the latest hate campaign
- The internet is pictures of our cats handed over to millionaires
When did the world get so fucking stupid?
