It feels fucking awesome for the likes of myself on the political left post GE2017 as it really does feel as if there’s a resurgence of left in British politics, yes Labour might of lost the actual general election, but the left have come out this general election far stronger than many thought we would & it really does feel the winds of ascendency are now behind the political left.
Oh wasn’t it fun yesterday seeing Toby ‘Tory Bollockhead’ Young on the BBC’s Marr Show choking on sour grapes because he can’t adjust to the fact that Tory wanker pundits like himself have been confounded by the fact that Jeremy Corbyn & Labour have come out of GE2017 far stronger & all I have to say to Toby Young & Ian Dale & every other Tory pundit is ha fucking ha, ha fucking ha, ha fucking….
No matter what the Tory establishment threw at Jeremy Corbyn, Corbyn’s now far more stronger, far more confident & far more of a threat, the Labour manifesto being a brilliant socialist document as it was (& still is) & the success of Jeremy Corbyn’s election campaign built upon the proposals in that manifesto, have tapped into what many peeps have been crying out & have reacted more than positively to, essentially Jeremy Corbyn has managed to enthuse millions who’d previously been despondent with the direction of Labour & even with democracy itself & that’s no mean feat.
No matter what bullshit reactionary alt-right cunts have tried to chuck at Jeremy Corbyn, Corbyn’s far stronger & UKIP are fucking nowhere, but I’d not go as far as to say the alt-right are completely dead & buried when it comes to British politics despite the electoral collapse of UKIP & I’m not talking about the DUP propping up the Tories in government.
For a while I’ve been lobbying the likes of Hope Not Hate & Unite Against Fascism & other anti-hate groups to keep an eye on various YouTubers & not just the activities of fascist bullies such as Britain First or the English Defence League. The thuggish Britain First are certainly a threat to public order with their odious but idiotic parades regularly disrupting town centres up & down the country come a Saturday afternoon & sure they’ve way too much of a presence online, but so do alt-right YouTubers like Sargon of Akkad & Paul Joseph Watson. Okay the likes of Sargon of Akkad & Paul Joseph Watson don’t appear to be the out & out fascist fucks in the same manner as BF or the EDL & appear to be losers who all day sit in their bedroom at their parents’ house with its teddy’s picnic wallpaper spouting shite about women or Muslims, but in fact are just as much a threat then Britain First parading in Rochdale or having a million & half likes for their Facebook page. There are plenty of hatemongers broadcasting on YouTube from mom’s basement, but some such as Sargon of Akkad & Paul Joseph Watson have a larger amount of subscriptions to their YouTube channels then the circulation of some national newspapers & will be taken more seriously because they disguise their hatemongering somewhat with pseudo-intellectualism rather than being hatemongers wearing bomber jackets & chucking bricks.
Always remember that one of reasons UKIP were as successful as they were was because they wore ties & blazers & not braces & bomber jackets, in other words UKIP are the BNP in blazers appealing to the middle classes. I’ve always said fascism won’t necessarily ascend with fascists wearing jack boots & Swastika type armbands, it’ll be far more subtle than that.
Yes we on the left are far stronger post GE2017 & let me take nothing away from that, but let us not drop our guard at the troublemaking hate fuelled alt-right because they’re not going to give up doing the shit they do, let us not be blindsided by these alt-right cunts.
