    The right has only just discovered AntiFash apparently, it's all a terrible revelation to them that anyone was fighting anyone.

    The problem with this is that it feeds the "Alt left" are the oppressive anti democratic, anti free speech, liberal left elite narrative that seems to be taking off at the moment. If you got a bunch of torykippers together with a sketch artist and asked them to describe Jeremy Corbyn's perfect day out this is what they would come up with. When you add the Churchill cafe protest it's bordering on satire or if you read the Mail, Sun, Express, Telegraph it's confirmation of everything you believe and a reason to vote Conservative regardless of whether they are totally incompetent.

    You see and hear "Antifa" in the news and more so on social media fairly frequently now and people who wouldn't have know what it meant or who it referred to a year ago are now labelling any even slightly noisy left leaning group antifa. It seems as if the right have taken the accusations previously levelled at them and successfully turned them on the left. We're now at a point where Tommy Robinson made it on to Sky news and also seems to be getting away with playing the victim card with his the police won't act because I'm white and people are threatening to kill my kids.

    Personally I find it scary that this story has been reported on by every mainstream media outlet. I can only think that the politically active among you don't seem bothered because the prospect of chanting moggy moggy moggy out out out is so exciting you sort of want him to make it to PM.

    FTR I have similar facial toning, so it's perfectly acceptable for me to make pejorative comments about the aforementioned purple faced prejudiced twats

    Im beginning to think that, rather than being some wierdo clown, Rees Mogg is actually a conniving, ruthless dogmatist who knows exactly what he is doing. A dangerous man.

    Possibly, but we thought that about Boris Johnson and it turns out that, behind the clown facade, he's an idiot.

    Johnson is lazy so tries to blag his way through with bluster. Rees Mogg comes accross as someone who does his homework.

    I know the idea that the Tories are actually a bunch of clowns who have no idea what they're doing is pretty awful, and that it's much nicer to think that underneath the disorganised idiot facade it's all Machiavelli shit because at least it means there's some order to the world and you might be able to out-think them, but tbh they really are like that. You can tell because when they _do_ try some sort of Machiavelli shit it's really, really obvious. This isn't some setup by Mogg, it's exactly what it looks like - his supporters starting on a bunch of shouty protestors, him vaguely wandering in and not doing anything, and the press framing it all as terrible violent left-wing censorship because they want to and they can shoehorn it into that category.

    Antifart what a bunch of sad losers. Middle class, pathetic embarrassment to the left. Unfortunately for the rest of us these same people are the next Rees Moggs. We toil away at our real jobs whilst they don fancy dress for a year or two then move back into their posh home counties homes and jobs in the city. For me it is a toss up for who i despise the most Rees Mogg or the self righteous posho demonstrators. And as for "he hit a girl" ! I thought we were all the same now, of course that once again shows where these cock wombles are really at with their dead on cooler than cool politics.

    Yeah I stuck this on the Tory death spiral thread but it probably belongs here:

    Beneath the mask, Jacob Rees-Mogg is a dangerous and deceitful bully

    Just had another look at the "you just punched a girl" bit! Are those plonkers serious, I really don't think they can have ever seen a real punch.

    Thanks for that. Perhaps - if you have time away from your proletarian toil - you could enlighten us as to what is acceptable political activism. Aside from the worthy pursuit of ignorantly sneering at others via the internet.

    Firstly pick a worthy cause. Get involved on the street and in your community in spreading awareness of the consequences of government plans for the NHS and how to oppose those plans. Contact your STP's. That should get you up and running for starters.

    I watched it again, from a different angle, and I don't think he punched her at all. He seems to be lifting his hand up as if to push something away.
