I'm reminded of a comment on one of the wikis about freemen on the land/sovereign citizens, that "they seem to think that randomly capitalising words gives them more power and authority".
On the paedophilia thing, I'm inclined to agree. "So, you're supporting child abuse?" is a hard one to back out of without looking as if you're equivocating (although hell, there are those who'd suggest that giving those accused a fair trial and then sentencing accordingly is 'being soft' - in fact anything short of a tree and rope would qualify as such to them). It's interesting that before paedogeddon really took off (late 90s?), each year saw a new group to hate - new age travellers, ravers, gypsies etc - but in all cases it was hard for the tabs to keep up the outrage. Then child abusers were decided upon, and have been our folk devil ever since.
"There ain't nothing you fear more than a bad headline, is there? You'd rather live in shit than let the world see you work a shovel."
