The odious Dennis MacShane

He really does annoy.

Like Jean-Marie Le Pen, who first coined the word \”federaste\” to attack supporters of the European Union in France, the right in Europe lurches from nationalist populism, via homophobia, to hate of Muslims and unacceptable language about Jews; it indulges in a constant rant against the EU and Brussels to create a witches\’ brew of intolerance and political nihilism.

Come along no laddie. That there are some anti-semitic fucktards who are against the EU does not mean that all who are against the EU are anti-semitic fucktards.

There have been plenty who claimed to be fighting for the rights of the workers who were genocidal maniacs. This does not mean that all claiming to be fighting for the rights of the workers are genocidal maniacs.

    You have seen Bob Crow, right?

  2. It’s all part of the narrative which seeks to demonise anyone on the right. The left knows it can’t win the argument by use of facts and reason, so it has to resort to lies, smears and ultimately violence- anyone remember Pim Fortuyn?
    And I’m not really sure how Jean-Marie Le Pen qualifies as being on the right, he’s a protectionist lover of big-government.

    Yup, that’s why I vote for ’em. Best counter to the big government eurofanatics in business. To get balance in politics you do actually have to have a variety of views.
    Shame the UK media doesn’t seem to get this these days

  4. Ok, here is another word for Dennis MacShame, someone who was born to be the face on the Big Brother poster.

    “EUdenrat”. It has nothing to do with anti-semitism, but has alot to do with people coerced or otherwise into working for the bureaucratic machine against the people.

    Federast is a great word. IIRC it has nothing to do with homosexuals, but has much to do with P’DOHphilia.

    Maybe this says more about Dennis than he would want to let on.

  5. C’mon now, Roger. The only reason you’ve got to call them “federasts” is because “pederasts” is already spoken for (can’t be goin’ around just misappropriating peoples’ identities, can we?)

  6. Roger:

    Just for an example of what I’m drivin’ at, just imagine Ritchie seeing Dennis’ “WGCE” being sprinkled around on all and sundry. You don’t think he’d have cause to be pissed?

  7. Gene and Roger, I think I prefer plain ‘Eurofanatic’. Given that they usually refer to sceptics as Europhobes i.e having an irrational fear of the EU, Eurofanatic gives just the right sense of being slightly unhinged.

  8. Duly noted, Jonathan. But my most judicious guess is that someone with more foresight than either of us has considered the matter from all points and, realizing “fanatic” is shortened in both the U.S. and over there to “fan” has correctly surnmised that “Eurofanatic” would quickly become “Eurofan,” which, almost as quickly, would become confused in the public mind with one of those devices generously distributed to every lucky 50th among the continent’s elderly unable–too poor or too incapacitated– to escape the summer heat.

    You’ve got to consider these things from more than one angle. Understanding just don’t come easy or cheap.

  9. Damn. I wrote “surnmised” where I should have, correctly, written “surinamised,”–you know, done like they do in Dutch Guiana; never can be too careful about these things.
