R80 I AM one of those gay men. There's a difference between not giving a personal shit and realising the implications of advocating, cheering for, and supporting a culture of violence based on opinions
I saw Anna Soubry last night on the SKY press preview. She's the alpha and omega of REMAINERS. Yet she seemed not to feel that the man merited being stabbed SEVENTTEN TIMES in front of his constituents because he supported Britain leavingbthe EU.
If you want to live in a functional democracy, as she pointed out, you're going to be working with people you disagree with.
Nevertheless, as everyone else said who worked with him, he was unfailingly kind and didn't seem to think that people who supported gay marriage or fox hunting deserved to he stabbed to death.
You lot really don't seem to get the bigger picture.
Once you reduce someone solely to an opinion iyou don't like and clap when he's murdered, the line behind him of next victims gets very long and you have a terrorist culture.
Why not encourage Jews to stab antisemites, plentiful and increasing in Britain? They could start with Corbyn. How about LEAVE voters stabbing REMAIN voters? How about republicans stabbing monarchists?
You just don't get the implications for a culture that is increasingly unable to tolerate differences of opinion and is increasingly willing to tolerate violence as a reasonable response.
He appears now to have been stabbed by an Islamist terrorist. In front of his constituents.
Christ Camila Tominey of the Telegraph was openly threatened by one of Meghan Markle's lunatic stand with being stabbed to death ALONG WITH HER THREE KIDS.
You think there's no connection between that incident and this one, or that lunatic thinking Tominey deserves to be stabbed to death for criticising a fucking meaningless celebrity and you thinking a politician who disagreed about gay marriage deserves to be stabbed to death?
MPs of all persuasions are being threatened with violence. Journalists are being threatened. Fans of one or another celebrity are being threatened. Teachers are being threatened.
The whole culture is descending into tribal warfare.
Some poster upthread said it should have been me. Can you credit it?! He doesn't remotely know me, the totality of who I am, and because I'm not cheering for this man's murder, I, too, should be stabbed 17 times publicly.
Hey, about we start holding auto da fes in Parliament Square?
Some things really transcend single issues, even one dear to the heart.
Where this sort of stuff takes a whole society is no place good.
You might want to give a personal shit about living in a culture which increasingly approves of a violent response to disagreement.
