Owen Jones surpasses himself

They pour the petrol and then wonder why it burns. Fascism is on the rise in the west, and it is emboldened, legitimised and fuelled by “mainstream” politicians and newspapers. When we mourn a hero like Bernard Kenny – who courageously tried to stop a fascist terrorist murdering Jo Cox – we have to ask ourselves: who are those with power and influence who helped create the conditions in which racists and fascists breed?

“Cannot believe we’re seeing Nazi salutes in 21st century America,” tweets Nigel Farage about Charlottesville, dragging a can of petrol behind him. Perhaps next the chief executive of a fast-food company will express disbelief at levels of obesity; or a tobacco company will issue a press release spluttering about lung cancer deaths. Farage: the man who stood, arms outstretched, in front of a poster featuring dark-skinned refugees and the words “Breaking Point”. Farage: the man who expressed his “concern” at having Romanians move in next door, and made apocalyptic warnings of Romanians and Bulgarians flooding Britain. Farage: the man who cheered on the ascendancy of Donald Trump, a US president whose most fervent supporters are now triumphantly chanting “Heil Trump!” as they menace minorities and progressives.

But Farage is the easy target. Across the western world a media and political elite scapegoats migrants for the crimes of the powerful, portrays Muslims as a homogeneous violent fifth column,

Of course, I, Owen Jones, aren’t portraying all those to the right of me as being the same knuckle dragging fascist goons, oh dearie me, no.

  1. “On a daily basis, the British population is asked to blame every problem they have on foreigners, rather than those with power and wealth.”

    But those with ‘power and wealth’ include the likes of George Soros, don’t they, Owen?

  2. The two faced Marxian scum.

    Fascism–ie -SOCIALISM–is a problem.? Well the assorted SOCIALIST scum who founded it intended it to be a problem.

    The hypocrisy of supporters of 150 million murders like Jones posturing as if they posses the moral high ground enrages rage beyond any ordinary rancour.

    Perhaps civil war is the way to go. Perhaps only an ocean of blood will finally wipe away the stain that is socialism.

  3. Sorry what has farage, a British political figure got to do with with Charlottesville.

    What has a civil disturbance in a foreign country in a different continent got to do with Farage or the UK?

  4. And as a few commentators point out. OJ and the shrieking banishees of twitter and the fake soft left are also responsible. Highlighting anything anyone says, retweeting it a million times then claiming we are in the midst of seeing xyz sin rising.

    Like Katie Hopkins. Ignore her. The point is to count attention ffs.

    All this strengthens my suspicion that the vast majority of people and ‘politics’ has nothing to do with actual material reality or achievements but perceptions and stoking personal brands (for those who get paid to write guff/virtue signal) and the fun daily outrage and self rightiousness of angry failures to feel good about themselves.

  5. “the conditions in which racists and fascists breed?”

    Funny how the Left always ends up at eugenics.

  6. How weird that if the Left continuously calls all its political opponents fascists just because they disagree with them, they may tend to gravitate towards actual fascism.

    After all if not liking the fact that your country is changing before your very eyes due to immigration on a scale never seen before makes you a fascist, maybe you’d start think ‘What else do these fascists believe in, as I’m apparently one of them?’

  7. Indeed, it must be allowed that thugs like young Owen here are the moral equivalent of fascists, there being no moral distinction between the various flavours of leftism: fascism, nazism, socialism and communism.

    The only difference with the genocidal mass murderers that Owen supports is that they are the types to tweet sanctimoniously that the torture and the slaughter is being done in the name of the People.

    And when all you’re really interested in is wallowing in feelings of self-righteousness and making public displays of piety, like the boy Owen, that’s plenty. Hell, he’s made a career out of it.

  8. Across the western world a media and political elite scapegoats migrants for the crimes of the powerful, portrays Muslims as a homogeneous violent fifth column,

    whut?

    The guy is a cretinous toxic tosspot – I wonder if he used to follow Seumas Milne around GMG offices like a faithful little puppy?

  9. This comment by Brendan O’Neill has been doing the rounds, because it nails self-indulgent little wankers like the boy Owen so precisely:

    ‘It’s becoming so clear now why the war of words between SJWs and the new white nationalists is so intense. It isn’t because they have huge ideological differences — it’s because they have so much in common. Both are obsessed with race, SJWs demanding white shame, the alt-right responding with white pride. Both view everyday life and culture through a highly racialised filter. SJWs can’t even watch a movie without counting how many lines the black actor has in comparison with the white actor so that they can rush home and tumblr about the injustice of it all. Both have a seemingly boundless capacity for self-pity. Both are convinced they’re under siege, whether by patriarchy, transphobia and the Daily Mail (SJWs) or by pinkos and blacks (white nationalists). Both have a deep censorious strain. And both crave recognition of their victimhood and flattery of their feelings. This is really what they’re fighting over — not principles or visions but who should get the coveted title of the most hard-done-by identity. They’re auditioning for social pity. “My life matters! My pain matters! I matter!” The increasing bitterness and even violence of their feud is not evidence of its substance, but the opposite: it’s the narcissism of small differences.’

  10. Even though it’s the silly season, the papers are even more full of laughable nonsense than ever, sjws squawking ever more dementedly. The London Evening Standard might even be worse than the Guardian. In yesterday’s edition every “story ” had a bit about how the world will end because of Brexit. Even the cancellation of the Garden Bridge was caused by Brexit. I don’t often read the Standard but have things changed since Osborne got there? It should be renamed the Remoaner. There was nothing in it that resembled journalism. Just a bunch of people with no life experience moaning about things they have no clue about

  11. Encouraging political violence isn’t going to end well, not for the country and certainly not for the public individuals doing it.

    I can’t see Owen Jones coming off best in a fight, to be fair, even with a seventy year old grandmother let alone some ‘Nazi’ hard nut.

  12. “Cannot believe we’re seeing Nazi salutes in 21st century America,” tweets Nigel Farage about Charlottesville, dragging a can of petrol behind him.

    Any legal persons think that is libellous?

  13. He’s absolutely right. Creeping Fascism is a big problem, and getting worse. Unfortunately his lack of self awareness would qualify him as an american. He’s talking about his own side, he just doesnt realise it.

    Not sure how Farage fits into it.

  14. Diogenes

    how right you are – when i think of the Standard of old it is startling to see the transformation….

  15. @Bongo

    It’s very insensitive of you to mention breeding around OJ.

    Also- notice how, this nutbag who drove the car into a mob is a fascist (despite having a diagnosed mental illness); yet rapey murderous folk that the left have sympathy for are the victims of oppression, a non medical condition that apparently exonerates them from blame for their actions?

  16. ‘Of course, I, Owen Jones, aren’t portraying all those to the right of me as being the same knuckle dragging fascist goons, oh dearie me, no.’

    He is just following the advice of his inspiration, Karl Marx: always accuse others of doing what you do.

  17. Poor Owen. Bad news: he’s found three fascists in the world. Good news: none of them are fascists and none of them have any connection with each other.

    Poor Johhny. Bad news: all the media and the BBC and Channel 4 and all the politicians bar a handful and everybody running a charity or quango and all the trades unions and all medical people are leftie loons. Good news: Bugger all.

  18. I recommend this interview with Dinesh D’Souza on the subject of the cross-pollination between the Italian fascists, the German Nazis and the American Democratic Party.

    Interesting sample fact – at the time if the Civil War, not one Republican politician owned slaves – all politician slave-owners were Dems. (I was well aware of the segregationist past the Democratic Party, and Bull Connor et cetera but this struck me as a fascinating statistic.)

  19. The Republican party was founded specifically as an anti-slavery party, so it’s not surprising there weren’t any slave owners among its elected officials.

  20. JerryC – absolutely. But this was a time when politicians believed what they said. The Dem links to slavery etc need repeating over and over again.
