In the same way tmblr lefties distort and add a layer of screechy emotion, Tim Pool does the same. It's always some dumb headline with an emphasises a word, about how the left is destroying something.
I find Pool incredibly dishonest (he isn’t a progressive), but his takes on identity politics and the double standards and creeping over reach of the left in the media are generally pretty sound.

For all the talk about egging and milkshaking and pavlova-ing (watch out, right wing internet celebrity), a proud boy has broke the vertebrae of a person by hitting her from behind with an extendable baton.

It seemed she was part of a protest or counter protest about against them, so she got in the sand pit. There's no indication she was violent herself.

We will end up there too.

China is just leading the way.

Of course.

There are plenty of distractions about - Muslims v Catholics, LWNJ v RWNJ, yada yada but it's essentially all about our governments having 100% control. They are the real terrorists here. So then you've got to ask who is controlling the governments? :p:think::think:

Let’s not argue semantics.

You clearly stated that Tommy’s appeal had nothing to do with class politics and everything to do with violence.

Am I wrong?
I said the movement Yaxley Lennon thinks he leads is based around racial and cultural resentment. A lot of that is drunk uncle stuff. Some is just angry facebook commenting.

But YL's own history demonstrates there is a part of it that wants street violence. Surely you can't argue that.

There is a whiff of economic resentment in them, but they'd rather direct their anger at the Paki making $5 an hour than the politicians making it happen.

Back to my point. No issues with milkshaking him.

So you don’t think the ‘racial and cultural’ resentment you talk about, has any merit whatsoever? You think it’s just a pack of ugly, boorish, racist Brits letting it all hang out do you?

You genuinely believe England circa 2019 is a world leading model for multiculturalism and social integration do you?

None of the people drawn to Tommy have legitimate concerns?

Proud Boys with telescoping batons you say?

You and I reached a stalemate on this year a while ago.

I've acknowledged antifa are violent though.
Yes.

Unfortunately you see there violence as morally justified. That’s the problem.

I’ll say it again. If I went and just smashed a milkshake into the side of Sarah Hanson Young’s head whilst she was in middle of a public interview, does anyone on here actually believe I wouldn’t be charged and publicly vilified? But Egg Boy and Milkshake boy do it and they become hero’s?
