I'm so torn on this, I really am.
I didn't want to believe that AS was a Thing in the broad left but there can be no doubt that it is part of the mud-sling that is within the armoury of those who we would usually see as being on "our side".
Who do you mean by that? Why do you characterise (what? anti-semitism? "smears"? party process?) it as "mud-sling ? I need you to clarify.
A part of me still believes that this is grounded in the politics of the simpleton. They say daft shit on Twitter. It becomes amplified. We become mired in it.
Probably correct, at least in part. But it certainly does not seem all to be characterisable in that way. The CRT report, if you read the whole thing, makes that very clear.
Meanwhile, holding to account the tories' solemn pledges to get to the bottom of Islamophobia is denigrated as Whataboutery or not even worth a mention
Who does this ?
while people are punching the air that journos on independent media - without name or form with which to call them to account - are losing their jobs.
Again, who are you talking about ? Who's punching the air? Who are losing their jobs ?
Meanwhile, the coup trundles on.
How many times in the last three years have we invoked the ghost of Niemöller? All that pearl-clutching is coming to an end, whether we like it or not. It is time to pick a side. Lefties, remoaners, vermin, queer taig midgets?
Again, I think
I know what or who you might be referring to, but I'm really not sure.
The side I chose might not be perfect but it is infinitely preferable to the alternative that is close to stifling all dissent within a few short months.
And again, who are you referring to? The Johnson administration ? What side have you chosen?
I've rarely known quite so gnomic a posting. I'm not getting at you (heaven forfend) but any chance of clearing up all these mysteries ?
