Isn't it just a bit hypocritical to disparage people for not having "real" jobs when you've spent the past 20 years as an elected official? And commodities brokers aren't really known for being "job creators", either.

Just because you haven't heard of it doesn't mean, it hasn't happened. It must be atleast 10 years since I read on a car site, that British guy with a German vw show plate on his VW had abused thrown at him. He was told to piss of back to Lithuania etc. eventhough he had British plates on his car as well.

So we have two prominent narratives in the media right now:

1) People voting for Leave had no idea what they were really voting for/what the EU is and does.
2) Said uninformed people are so motivated by the Brexit they are lashing out in unprecedented numbers to commit racial hate crimes.

I find it hard to maintain both at the same time.

How are those two elements even remotely contradictory? confused.gif

Being motivated to commit hate crimes by something I care so little about that I know nothing about it? Doesn't pass the sniff test to me.

Also, the best the BBC has to offer in this wave of hate crimes is the guy on the train getting hassled.

I guess I lost my way here too. I'm doubting all these dubious second hand reports like the one about the couple laughing at the Polish waitress. If there are indeed some real hate crimes that happened where the perpetrators are saying the Brexit fueled their actions, what's the import of that? Were these folks good, honest, law abiding citizens and now are suddenly engaged in racial jihad because of a referendum? What does this mean in practical terms?

Also, don't forget reports like this being found attached to the doors of a Polish center:

Whites in the west are being raped and beaten and attacked. The Nigerians murder the Dutch who dare walk out of their homes past midnight.

Using the logic of "Colin Powell used private email too," I say two wrongs make a right.

Oh holy lol, there's a clip of that Limey cocksucker John Oliver deriding the UK decision to leave the EU and it's supposed to mean something because that's where that queen is from... And where he fled at the first fucking possible opportunity.

So fucking hilarious for exactly the opposite reason he intended. What a fucking deaf dumb and blind retarded cunt.

Also looks like he packed on a hundred pounds since last season.

Also, Nigel Farage's only 'proper job' was as a metals broker in the City in the 1980s, a job given to him by his father. Anyone who knows financial history knows what kind of job that was: start drinking at 11 am, followed by long boozy lunches every day, and driving home drunk before 3.

Piob, I can't tell if you're stupid or just being wilfully obtuse. Ignorance of the functioning and purpose of the EU in no way precludes hating Polish people and hurling abuse at them. How can you possibly think that these people need to have a nuanced understanding of the EU to hate it and to react against it? It's precisely because of their ignorance of the EU that they have taken Brexit as a signal and a go-ahead to attack foreigners in the streets.

If given a choice always go with stupid.

Hate crimes are a myth. Please see the Fake Hate Crimes thread.
