    I would also hope not.

    I'm more interested to hear what happened after this incident though.

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    Not the "rape apologists", the "genocidal murder of half the population as a structural metaphor apologists".

    I'm finding that a little difficult to turn into something referring to the real world. Could you just say?
     
  4. revol68

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    That's because the whole episode had no reference to the real world.

    Okay so that's a "what oh never mind it was just made up Internet bullshit" then.
     
  6. revol68

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    It's hardly that cryptic

    It was part of the ones who ended up chanting Kill All Men that were gleefully asking about going "twollin", as my mate retold it.

    I sat around the next day with a disparate bunch of anarchos who weren't together at the bookfair. They all were bemused with different scenes they witnessed.

    The twats making a scene sound like Internet anarchos and/or state actors.

    Still interested to hear what the longer term effect was.

    Of what?
     
  11. revol68

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    Deserved what?

    I'm saying that they came up to a person my friend was speaking to and said "are we going trolling", a short time after they got themselves in a shouting match with the Catholic Worker guy and chums.

    In practice, it will probably add some pressure on bookfair organisers to establish a "safer spaces" policy.

    I'd guessed something like that yeah.

    Not really IMO, if there's a change it won't be from this.

    That was a very interesting interaction, I think it was Butchers (apols if not) who made the Heathers comment on another thread, they played it out impeccably.

    krink I'll do it this afternoon

    just like when 'heathers' was originally mentioned, the above mention reminds me what a canny little film it is. so here's the whole thing;

    No, the cartoonist went, talked to people and wrote down their response.

    On the Millbank generation of twitter full communists (who really aren't communists), I never understand why after they swarm on someone who breaks orthodoxy, calling them a cunt or telling them to kill themselves in a total group frenzy, their twitter exchanges between themselves read like this;

    "I just wanted to say that you're amazing & right."

    "thank you <3 & all solidarity appreciated so much xxx"


    It all looks like a weird cult from the outside, people in their mid twenties and early thirties treating politics basically like Myspace drama.

    A number do seem genuinely damaged individuals with a pack of self indulgent narcissists feeding off them by proxy. If this really takes hold on the left it will have even less chance of conecting to the outside real world.

    The Trots really dodged a bullet when they failed to pull significant numbers out of the student movement in 2010.

    and then he threw that away and drew his cartoon based on the most obvious cliche, stereotypical shit he could come up with, eh?

    But people have admitted to saying those things to him "standing outside shops" etc.

    Not difficult to find obvious cliche, stereotypical shit at the bootfair mind.
