Brexiters and Covid denial
« on: May 16, 2020, 01:39:20 PM »
It's the new thing for the brave boys of Brexit. Delingpole is at the "freedom protest" today. Farage and the usual suspects defying lockdown because racism is more important. Oakshotte mocking those who don't want to put themselves and children in their care into danger, from the safety of her enormous kitchen.  Cummings doing his best to kill as many of those he decides aren't worthy of life.

It really is, and always was, a death cult.

I think a lot of them see Johnson as Mr Brexit and will oppose any criticism of him. The Leave.Eu twitter account has been defending Johnson for lots of non-Brexit related reasons, for example. A lot of those trying to shout down people who hold the government to account as is one's democratic right have pro-Brexit content in their profile.

I'm not saying this is necessarily linked either but old Piers Corbyn has just been nicked in an anti lock down protest in Hyde park, almost zero social distancing witnessed - Dead soon. Apparently the COVIDS is a conspiracy

Lexiters? They certainly existed but I'd hardly call their numbers hefty.

They weren't part of the Vote Leave or LeaveEU crew that are writing about selfish teachers in the broadsheets or acting the cunt in London today

I have to be honest, I'm not so sure. Have you any facts on the Vote Leave membership

There was one of these "freedom protest" things in Manchester too. Looks like about ten people turned up.

Conversely, why are the FBPE crowd determined that COVID-19 is some kind of incredibly deadly plague when the evidence is to the contrary? We could all resume normal activities tomorrow and it wouldn't make a difference. Why can't they recognize that the lockdown is causing way more harm to physical health than the virus would've done had we taken the same route as Sweden? And this is leaving aside the terrible impact these measure have had on mental health and job security.

Incidentally I was initially in favour of a lockdown after that alarming Imperial College report was released but changed my mind after it emerged that the virus is in fact much less dangerous than they claimed.

In one sense, surprised to see COVID denial among Brexiteers. Afterall, long lockdown means more scope to blame the inevitable economic damage from Brexit on COVID. Surely they should love COVID.

Then in another more accurate sense, they're all morons, so it's not surprising.

The FBPE Crowd.

You twat. The FPBE crowd are the ones whining that they can't get their cleaners and nannies in because of lockdown. They have much more in common with your Telegraph "back to school plebs" writers than the rest of us. But you know that.

These people aren't English. They are absolutely obsessed with American-style 'Super-Size Me' liberty. They live and breathe corporatism and Jeffersonian notions of unrestricted rambling across wide open spaces. Nothing whatever to do with our culture. See also: Rees-Mogg.

Yes but jobotic could never wrap their head around that concept. That kind of talk doesn't fly around here.

I have noticed a lot when seeing someone on Twitter that seems to lack any sort of empathy towards say teachers, immigrants, trans people, when you look at their bio they tend to be Brexit supporters. I am not saying that all Brexiters are empathy voids but there is a bit of correlation there it seems. There also seems to be correlation between these people and having "loving husband and father" in their bios, as if that is something to be proud of rather than what is to be expected from anyone married with kids

Yes I can get my head around the fact that they exist - I've played snooker with some of 'em - but there are not hefty swathes of them and they are not the ones mouthing off about getting everyone back to work or Covid being a scam.

Interesting point that kind of touches on something I've been thinking of recently: It's notable  how after the usual initial skepticism before he became President and seemed like a joke, Trump is more or less unquestioningly beloved by the UK right wing these days, when  his Ugly American persona should really be anathema to the classic Little Englander chauvinist archetype/tradition they aspire to be preserving.

They forget that your classic reactionary English chauvinist  of the mid 20th Century tended to hold America in as much disdain as he did Europe. They can't eveh have their own authentic English bigotry now, it's just a franchise of an American conglomerate blueprint, like a McDonalds in Middle England with a few Watercolour prints by local artists on its walls to give it 'character'.

I've seen some crossover, but there's not a big population of Lexiters in the first place.

Aren't all Momentum and Corbynites pro brexit. Doesn't brexit help to drive down wages and expand globalism, by free trade and free movement. Isn't this against the corps principle.

Leaving aside the poor use of punctuation, the response to this question is, obviously, "no".

Is it not pro brexit labour that handed the general election to The Conservatives. Wasn't it Jeremey Corbyn's inner turmoil of being a fundamentalist brexiteer (look at his voting history on the subject over 30 years) that led to the confusion of Labour over brexit. Dont put all brexiteers down as middle england bunting and scones. What do you all think the foundations and bricks of the red wall are. CHRIST, at least look at yourselves

No, Labour lost the election because "corbynites" and momentum are essentially pro-EU, which didn't fly with the Leave voters in traditional Labour seats. There was no confusion apart from caused by those wishing to cause it
