The Hypocrisy of Socialists

Do you remember the media hype last December when Jeremy Clarkson made a joke on TV suggesting that striking public sector workers should be “taken out and executed”? The left just couldn’t wait to jump on the bandwagon and demand his sacking. Barnet Blogger VickiM went as far as to call him a c*nt. Nice.

Clarkson frequently makes provocative comments simply to create a reaction. If you don’t like what he has to say, or the way that he says it, you don’t have to listen to him. But that is not good enough for the swivel-eyed Trots, who simply cannot bear the thought of anyone expressing an opinion that is contrary to their deluded and misguided belief system.

Roll the clock forward to May 2012 and Labour MP Kerry McCarthy uses Twitter to suggest that a fellow train passenger “should have been killed” for wearing an offensive T shirt. Of course, this is different to the Clarkson case because, as Mz McCarthy said in a subsequent Tweet, her comments were “obviously flippant.”

Obviously. Perish the thought that anyone should consider her a sanctimonious hypocrite.

You applaud Jeremy Clarkson for his forthright views and frank speaking but berate Vicki for her forthright views and frank speaking about Clarkson. Surely this is a tad contradictory.

I neither condoned nor condemned Clarkson for the words that he used. I recognise his right to free speech. I recognise the right of people to say things that other people might find offensive. I loathe the PC lobby that tries to control what people can and cannot say. Vicki is entitled to call Clarkson a c*nt, if that’s what she believes, but to do so on the basis of what Clarkson said is hypocrisy of the highest order.

David, as far as I am aware, Clarkson has used the term to describe himself and plays up to it.

August 17th 2012. 8 months since C*ntson's "Shoot them in front of their families" quip and would you believe it, he is outraged by 62 million british b*stards because some of them have seen the funny side of one of his pets dying.

Great at dishing it out but not so good at taking it. What a c*nt.
