Yeah an underclass child has a "sense of entitlement" for sending a couple of stupid tweets, whilst his "victim" who makes more in a month than he will in ten years, tries to trash the kid's life in between cocaine fuelled spit roasts of wannabe models.

My heart bleeds for him. How terrible is the systemic racism he encounters. Oh, the racy racy racism, how awful it must have been to read such tweets! They must have so hurt his feelings!

The gap between "progressive" dogma in our country and the reality of every day life is laughable.
So you make assumptions about the child to depict him as a victim, yet think it's ok to make vile generalisations about Zaha?

Why do you think it's ok for someone to be abused for the colour of their skin and doing their job?

Yes they are unnerving, and there can be no end to them.

First they came for right wingers, and they were shut up. Certainly in academia and the public sector, and now corporate life. The sort of stuff I come out with on this website would not be acceptable for someone in public life. They would be cancelled.

But now, because of the dearth of targets, fellow progressives are falling victim to it. And the irony of it is that even to criticise this phenomenon from a left wing perspective, as the famous signed letter did, gets you attacked viciously. It is OK for JK Rowling, she will always get published, but a fellow writer of less prominence supported her and lost her publishing contract.

This isn't normal, and it isn't right.
Why do you think right wing governments have been so feeble in opposing this?

Because politics is downstream of culture, and that culture is progressive.

Left of centre governments are in power, right wing ones in office as a result. The right are terrified of going against the culture.
