I’ve just moved cities in order to spend a few months recuperating from a stroke, slipped disc and continue my fight against cancer, and the idea was to give blogging a wee break until everything was sorted out but after Donald Trump’s election which is enabling all the arsehole fuckwit alt-right fascists you can imagine, there’s a need for more and more voices to be heard in opposition to what is likely to be coming.
However, this is about Nigel Farage; a man who since Trump’s election has wrapped his lips round Trump’s prostate in order to carry on the gravy train he’s been on for decades, though with Trump being so far to the right the cries to make the walking heap of faeces that is Farage a lord is only right. After all, if he’s going to become the 21st century’s Lord Haw Haw he might as well have a peerage. We know Farage has more than dabbled with racism and fascism in the past, and with the far right empowered we have to make to clear that Nigel Farage is not a ‘man of the people’, nor are his actions normal, acceptable or do they speak for the majority of people in the UK.
But name calling a pompous prick like Farage isn’t going to stop him cheering on Trump deporting Muslims, or demonising LBGT people, or making black people the root of all crime, or making women feel like their control of their bodies are now in the hands of far right lunatics amassing behind Trump. No, it does however really, really annoy the Daily Mail types who masturbate themselves into a creamy frenzy every time they see their Poundshop Oswald Moseley.
I do think liberals are going to have to stop trying to imagine things will be ok, or that supporting Brexit is a good idea because that’s the result of June’s referendum so you give ground to the far right and right now we don’t do that. We don’t give these shits a fucking inch. We’re in a dirty, brutal fist-fight with the forces of fascism however pointing out that Nigel Farage is the human personification of being kicked in the crotch so hard it makes you sick isn’t a bad thing. Mock the man, despise him and what he stands for. Don’t make Farage seem jolly, fun or normal. Make it clear what it is he stands for and we might have some hope of at least annoying bitter far right arseholes in the future.
