Rise of the far right in Europe.

The likes of Tommy Robinson are built up by the media, as was farage, into being a bigger deal than they are in the hopes that it will provide them with further stories down the line. 

 

He's a low level football hooligan at best, the notion that he's a serious threat or serious political force - or ever will be - is ludicrous. 

 

The right has never flourished in this country and it never will. It's time is past, younger people are more liberal and more tolerant than any generation which has gone before, the great shame for them is that their destinies are controlled still by people who aren't, ageing Tory voters and rust belt Americans called Bud and Chip. 

 

Trump, Farage, Johnson et al are the death rattle of a dying ideology, the masks have slipped, the guise has come in various incarnations from Reagan to Blair to Cameron and each incarnation has been laid a bit more bare, been stripped a bit more of its pretentions and disguises to the point where now it's cuntery in the raw with no desire to pretend to be anything else. 

 

The bakcwash they're creating is a sight to behold though. Imagine even five years ago that there would be a load of female, ethnic US Senators that make Bernie Sanders look like Nigel Lawson.  

I wouldn't say Trump or Farage are the death rattle of anything. In contrast actually.

Sadly, have to agree with this. The 'latest' cycle of populist, self-interested, right-wing rabble-rousers that appeal to the mob. Ironically these 'Nationalist' lowest common denominator views appear to have again achieved some considerable traction internationally.

BK's tweet was brilliant.

I hate that it has become a trend. Making victims out of these lots will achieve absolute fuck all. 

 

I couldn't give a single fuck about their welfare or if they’ve had a milkshake thrown at them, but I’m tellin’ you that this will make them seem like the reasonable ones and those objecting to them look at extreme. 

 

Its going to backfire.

It’s going to happen to Corbyn soon or May then there will be calls for the throwers to be prosecuted and full on outrage. 

 

Still, I can’t help but smile at the look on the face of Farage.

Farage is a cunt. And has racist leanings. But, he's a politician. I'm not arsed that he was glooped, but I think stuff like that is better reserved for the likes of Tomm-eh, Mr. rape joke and that Goddard chancer.

Pretty much spot-on article about milkshakes and Fascists.  It's not violence; it's ridicule and humiliation.

Those who would condemn the throwing of milkshakes, while claiming to represent ‘the real Britain’ would do well to remember the long history of mockery and ridicule running throughout British political history. Mocking effigies, obscene poems, even the odd clump of flung horse dung, have made multiple appearances in the discourse, reaching a peak in the 18th Century.

The milkshake has emerged as a potent tool in showing the Far Right in the UK for what they are – cowards and frauds. For all their self-righteous anger, for all their arrogant bluster, all it takes is a cold, milky beverage to cower them.
