Former comedy writer Graham Linehan has traded his career for ranting about trans people on the Internet.

Official thread theme song

Unofficial thread theme song


For continuing analysis of the alleged Father Ted writer's exceptionally public breakdown and subsequent deterioration

Timeline of events:
The Descent
- Done a bad transphobia in IT Crowd episode
- Instead of saying "soz", became the most notable transphobe on the planet
- Spent 21 hours a day on twitter misgendering, insulting and brigading trans people and their allies
- Attempted to have trans charity Mermaids' lottery funding pulled. Hbomberguy live stream to counter this raises $300,000 for Mermaids instead, then Mermaids got the lottery money anyway, meaning Graham failed on every level it is possible to have failed
- Depth charged his own career, lost his family
- Starting calling people paedophiles on Twitter
- Again: threw away his wife and children, his career and any positive legacy in order to call people paedophiles on Twitter
- Graham sleeps in a racing car, do you?
- Got kicked off Twitter permanently for repeatedly harassing people and calling them paedophiles, spent years lying about why he was banned

The Twitter Ban
- Subsisted on thin gruel of his newly in-the-low-hundreds audience (down from 700k) on his paid Substack blog (with tip jar!), on which his sanity has clearly evaporated entirely. Posts consist of screenshots of tweets, transphobic misinformation, self-pitying rants and libel.
- Started regular YouTube vlog "The Mess We're In" with co-hosts Helen Stanisland and Arty Morty. Videos consist of transphobic misinformation, self-pitying rants and slander.
- Entire income is now tied to bigotry, no entertainment industry work forthcoming. Media appearances largely confined to GB News, TalkTV and various right-wing grifter YouTubes/podcasts. Blah blah Twitter ban blah blah transphobic canards blah blah lying about why his wife left him blah blah they stole my musical blah blah blah
- Went on Stephen Nolan's show and cried for attention while lying about why his wife left him
- Hosted a Special Birthday Mess to celebrate Netflix firing a bunch of minorities while his son was visiting. Son had to interrupt him ranting about Woke Doctor Who to give him his birthday present. Proceeded to do mocking impersonation of son to Helen and Arty
- Engaged in increasingly bizarre transphobic shenanigans, including but not limited to:
Spoiler alert
- Sent things in the post to people like transphobic birthday cakes and white feathers (?!)
- Created false account on "Her" dating app to post peoples' private images; national reportage of this incident painted him quite accurately as a pathetic moron
- Went to Parliament and made an absolute loser of himself, again
- Has claimed to have received multiple visits from the police, admitted he no longer opens the door in case it's the cops come to do Stonewall's bidding
- Initiated 19/12/2021 "Gender Critical Coming Out Day", urging TERFs worldwide to compromise their safety by revealing their bigotry to others. Was widely condemned for this transparent attempt to take the heat off himself that clearly in no way benefits women
- Invited sceptic Aaron Rabinowitz on The Mess We're In, proceeded to talk over him and let Arty and Helen do likewise. Brought up various "gotchas", uninterested in Rabinowitz's nuanced answers or in the civilised discussion Rabinowitz was having with the other guest, gender-critical sceptic Andy Lewis, about actual science and evidence. Did a big cum in his pants when Rabinowitz said that trans women should be allowed in women's changing rooms. Subsequently hosted a livestream wherein he declared victory over Rabinowitz, to the surprise of no-one
- Wants credit for inventing the brilliant tactic of "calling people you don't like child molesters" now that right-wing nutjobs are doing it
- Interviewing absolute nutcases on his vlog now, people with Empire of Japan flags on their ceilings and the like
- Has taken to uploading solo vlogs, some edited, more not, wherein he rambles about the Father Ted musical, Twitter ban, trans people existing and begs his various enemies to please fight with him or acknowledge him in any way, oh god I need validation
- Attended various anti-trans rallies/events, including Standing for Women 4th Birthday Event, one in Brighton (which various assorted fash groups also attended), right-wing circle jerk The Battle of Ideas (speaker), and launch of some transphobic book (featured speaker).
- Got all mad that some TERFs were unhappy about actual Nazis turning up to their transphobia demo, characterised them as "head girls" who managed to get all his friends to stop talking to him right when his wife was leaving him. Such feminism
[close]
- Spoke publicly and wrote two articles about how "Chris Morris fans" have been harassing him for 25 years, complete with screenshots of CaB, cryarsed about CaB on Twitter once he got his account back, threatened to report the admin to the police
- Made Stewart Lee's 2021 "In the Pedal Bin" list and promptly added Stu to his list of enemies, encouraged his audience to heckle Lee on his then tour
- Cameo'd in Simon Hanselmann's masterpiece of pandemic fiction, Crisis Zone
- Claimed Hat Trick offered him 200k to fuck off so they can release the Father Ted musical without his name on it, which he refused. Jimmy Mulville has since confirmed to The Times that the offer was made
- Insisted that anyone working on Father Ted the Musical sign a declaration of "women's sex-based rights"
- Arthur Mathews and Neil Hannon now on the List of Enemies for not defending innocent Irish children from dangerous thoughtcrime
- Bitched on his substack about how JK Rowling gets to have a play but his musical is all cancelled and what an injustice it is, that was his PENSION, and surely radio host Joe Duffy's listeners would be interested in an Irishman's work being stolen away by British producers just like they stole the praties out of the ground and the teeth from the children's mouths. So far, Duffy has failed to notice him.
- Claimed to be suing Hat Trick, which will surely end well for him
- Comedian Michael Legge released a short one-man audio drama called "Grim Night" for Halloween 2022, heavily satirising Glinner and his sad existence
- Chris Morris makes Glinner's List of Misogynist Traitors for the crime of not standing up for Glinner
The Return
- December 22nd 2022 saw Glinner's glorious return to Twitter. Promptly resumed tweeting abuse to and about celebrities/former friends alongside outlandish transphobic canards, bleeding hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of followers a day in his first month due to how much more bananas he has become. He has learned nothing from the loss of his career, family and friends.
- Since rejoining Twitter, barely posts on his Substack, leaving it in the care of the mysterious (and unpaid) "JL".
- Bought a blue tick because of course he did
- Skewing increasingly to the right, saying Gamergate was all about freeze peach and people who spoke out against it were "misogynist grifters"; praising KiwiFarms for all the great doxxing they do; supporting/grovelling to transphobic politicians/far right grifters who hate women; praising the Catholic Church for "know[ing] what a woman is" despite "all its faults"; claiming trans people weren't targeted by the Nazis; claiming police ignored Asian grooming gangs because of political correctness; questioning whether vaccines and climate change are real; all that normal stuff
- Disappointingly, has managed to worm his way into appearances on "respectable" TV and radio stations such as BBC Radio 4, Sky News, and Newstalk FM, and interviews in supposedly decent newspapers such as The Times, wherein he did his usual whining while alleged journalists gently lapped at his hole
- Attended a bunch of wank I'm So Cancelled events, because this is the grift now
- Believes and spreads all manner of misinformation and cherrypicked "facts" about trans folk, what else is new
- His increasingly deranged and disgusting transphobia continues, lowlights below:
Spoiler alert
- Scoffed at the notion that a trans woman was raped 2000 times while serving a four-year prison sentence. Subsequently laughed about it on his vlog while co-hosts Arty and Helen looked visibly uncomfortable
- Was a horrible fucking ghoul about the murder of Brianna Ghey, using her tragic death as an excuse to screech that there's no such thing as a trans child, gleefully misgender her, and accuse trans folk and their allies of "politicising" her death
- A live "Mess We're In" was scheduled for 28th April 2023 at an Undisclosed Location. Twitter users did some digging and found evidence that the promoter was a Nazi. Live Mess suddenly postponed
- Finally had the chance to stand up to a trans? person using the toilet but claimed he was "jammed into a corner" otherwise he'd have been right there committing assault
- Initially refused accreditation by the police to attend a free speech event at a Conservative Party conference but the Tories nicely sorted his invitation out. Off he goes to lick lovely British boot not 24 hours after crying (again) about how English producers at Hat Trick stole away the work of an Irishman
- Attended Let Women Speak event in Dublin, is filmed giving the finger to Irish Mammies for Trans Rights (apologise to your mother, Graham!), and is photographed snuggling up with an actual fascist (Fergus Power) who later took part in a protest at Leinster House which featured gallows and an effigy of a politician.
- The WPATH files will vanquish gender ideology once and for all! ...no wait the Cass Report will vanquish gender ideology once and for all! ...but only if Graham continues to tweet twenty hours a day till the end of time!!!!!!
[close]
- Appeared a number of times at Comedy Unleashed (a shitty right-wing comedy show), making his debut on Valentine's Day because what else would he be doing, having a romantic dinner with his wife?
- Mumblecore audio and shakycam of his wretched sets are released online. Graham's repertoire consists of jokes about how standing on a chair tricks your wife into thinking you're doing a manly task; an anecdote about how he once shat in the bath and left the shit there for a lady friend to see; and how being a straight man in Soho during Pride is just like being a Jew in Occupied France (complete with hilarious impression of a gay man as an SS officer).
- Became the subject of a Will Franken sketch (Thank You, Graham Linehan!) and a routine by Paul Mone (Graham Linehan Walks Into A Bar)
- Appeared in the Contrapoints video "The Witch Trials of J.K. Rowling" as a cautionary example of a cunt gone bananas
- Featured heavily in a Metro article about online radicalisation, as a cautionary example of a cunt gone bananas
- A theatre in Tel Aviv cancels a production of The Ladykillers due to Graham being a cunt gone bananas
- Leith Arches, a well-known pro-LGBTQ venue, pulls the plug on a Comedy Unleashed set after Glinner is revealed to be the Mystery Cancelled Comedian on the card. A second venue later cancelled the event (allegedly), leaving Glinner with no option but to do a sad little stand-up set outside the fucking Scottish Parliament, almost as if this whole thing was a publicity stunt from the get-go.
- TalkTV interview Glinner about the whole affair, only to regret it immediately as he starts screeching about paedophiles and slandering all the people who are currently suing him. Glinner later threatens to sue everyone in TalkTV for daring to cut away from him for his own sake and interview people who disagree with him
- Has somehow managed to shit out a book, despite being on Twitter for 19 hours a day. He's also reading the audiobook, so if you hate yourself you can pay real human money to hear Glinner lie about and whitewash his cuntery in a tremulous voice that suggests he might burst into tears at any moment
- The book is serialised in the Daily Mail, and to the surprise of no-one who reads these threads, the story of his brave crusade against the evil trans overlords is a pile of great big massive lies with feckin' bells hanging off them
- Started stanning for Israel while the IDF murdered thousands of Palestinian women and children
- Made a video promoting his stupid book of lies, wherein he does that thing where he sarcastically pretends it's a jolly old stocking stuffer and not a Tome of Great Import, also please buy a copy for all your friend. Desolation
- Mentioned CaB in another interview with some grifting nobody, describing CaBbers as comedians and comedy writers (why thank you, Graham) "who watch TV in order to slag off whatever they see" (eh, fair). Whined that CaB's been "targeting" him since IT Crowd season one. No Graham, you went off the deep end over the existence of trans people and were enough of a Big Name Comedy Writer that we noticed
- The Indo Daily podcast did an episode on Glinner which actually told the truth about him, correctly attributing his Twitter ban to "saying things to the degree that he was being banned by the social media platform."
- During a performance of The Fast Show Live, Higson and Whitehouse referred to the creators of Ted and Ralph as "...Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews – or as we now call them, Arthur" and followed up by thanking "Arthur".
- Continued his Very Important Work of being a cunt gone bananas by continuing to be a cunt gone bananas, only in Australia now. Once he got his visa sorted out, I mean.
Previously in Trans Mania:
- Remarked on some podcast or other that ghettoization of the Jews made their community ties stronger WHAT THE FUCK
- Was late for his own book launch in Sydney because he simply had to rant on livestream about how all his former friends only care about dinner parties, "the sad wankers on Cook'd and Bomb'd" who are always looking at the background of his livestreams for something to "get" him with, woke BBC, trans Doctor Who, wah wah poor me blah blah fuck fuck
- Retweeted misinformation about the Sydney shopping centre knife attacks which stated the attacker was Muslim
- Claims he left Black Books because Dylan Moran "was a nightmare on set so I had to bail". In his own book he admits he left in a strop because Moran and the show's executive producer wanted to replace him as director
- blah blah blah fighting with former colleagues/peers, bullying women, harassing trans folk, simping for JK Rowling, lying about why his life is in the toilet, and begging for money. Umpteenth verse same as the first
- Spreads misinformation about trans healthcare, including photographs he claims are post-op pictures of minors who've had gender reassignment surgery, without the permission of the individuals in the photos
- Bizarrely insists that he ISN'T anti-trans??? and takes exception every time he's describe as such???
- Fantasizes about the day "when this is all over" and all his former friends grovel at his feet while he tells them to fuck off
- Is generally speaking an embarrassment to all
Graham's accomplishments thus far: Raised an enormous amount of money and awareness for trans people, got banned from Twitter, lost own career, legacy, friends and family, fucked his chances of ever getting a Father Ted musical made, caused a forum full of failed comedy writers and Chris Morris fans to discuss and care about trans rights, is the stupidest cunt on the planet.

Notes on the thread:
I think I caught all the lowlights from last thread. I try to only add stuff that's outstanding for Glinner and there honestly isn't much more he can do apart from a crime, or maybe finally get sued into oblivion. If I missed anything, talk about it now.

In other news, I would like to hand these threads off to someone else, if there are any takers.

Quote- Bizarrely insists that he ISN'T anti-trans??? and takes exception every time he's describe as such???

This is the most puzzling bit of the whole thing. JK does it too even after she took the piss out of a middle aged trans person who got a job not limited by gender which had nothing to do with her claimed issues of women's spaces or children being rushed into transition. Own your hatreds, please!

Shaxberd

Thanks again for the hard work PBGC.

At this stage is it worth considering consolidating the Glinner, Rowling etc threads into an all purpose 'the GCs are at it again' thread? Glinner has completed his descent and is now stuck in a Groundhog Day of his own making, the most interesting stuff on these threads tends to be the tangents away from him.

damien

Inspired by the recap, I did a quick check and he seems to have pretty much stopped saying 'When this is all over', using it only once in the past few months. I think he reached peak-WTIAA around summer last year when he was saying it multiple times a week but it really seems now that he doesn't think 'this' will ever be 'all over'. Maybe the pitiful reaction to both the Aussie tour and his autobiography have taken the wind out of his sails?

Yeah, maybe this could be the Last Real Glinner thread. The guy just isn't doing anything any more and it's very rare for the media or the GCs to pretend to care about him. Not to say his story is over

Maybe he will enter some sort of larval stage and emerge as a MegaGlinner

Has anyone ever discussed Graham with normies? In my experience  they will invariably have no idea what you're talking about and might have vague sympathy for his position.

Graham hasn't done a sexual assault or murder which most folk understand is bad.

This is a niche issue like the American presidential election or the difference between Marvel and DC. Normal people will likely be less informed.

That is probably a good thing. It shows how niche the interest is and how much of an echo chamber he is in

Yeah as if it were some egregious act to take a job as manager of a mediocre women's football team, or that someone would transition in order to achieve that, or would even need to considering the number of male managers in women's football

Nah, just Father Ted, Black Books or the IT crowd, the actual shows, nobody cares about the writers. The actors, maybe, but the writers? No, unless they are actors.

I felt mean today. So i am watching Graham's talking head videos again. What is everybody's favourite Graham Rant?  It's hard to top the Whitehouse one, but the Conservative Party one is also very very good.

If you've only glimpsed his bollocks (ugh) through the mainstream media, you likely do think he's "only raising concerns" and has been unfairly cancelled. Same with Joke Rowling. It's rather annoying.

But as Phantom_Power said, perhaps the silver lining is that it shows the noxious, pure & uncut twattery on their twitters is contained and has a reach limited mostly to other true-believers rather than super-spreading to normal people.

On another topic, merci very much Dead Garlic Poirot, sorry this job is a laborious bore and perhaps a general GC thread would indeed be a good idea.

Mx Wrongs

There can't have been all that much money in the bilge that falls out of Barry Wall's mouth, but it must be a bit demoralising nonetheless.

ETA: I feel like 'bilge' over-values Wall's output. It's plain rubbish. He has no insights to share, and has no right to ask for, or to expect, money in exchange for his views.



Winning again. Re-winning. Reeeeeeeee winning.

kngen

Whenever I mentioned him to folk (if it came up in conversation) when I was back in the UK recently, the uniform reaction was pretty much: 'Yeah, what the fuck happened to him? He's gone a bit mad, hasn't he?'

It's hardly a perfect cross-section of British society, but those people included friends, work colleagues and my mum.

JaDanketies

Yeah every time I've heard him mentioned irl it's been someone saying that he went mad, or maybe using him as a metaphor for the dangers of social media / extremist politics

Beloved of Jo

After ignoring him for six months or so, I must admit I was kind of hoping to find he'd regained some sanity rather than continued the descent. Maybe they discovered his cancer had metastasised into a slow-growing brain tumour. Grey matter slowly replaced by a malignant testicle that had been now been safely excised.

Still, I'm glad I and apparently everyone else I know never even noticed him defiling the country. Kind of sad that in Queensland, Australia's answer to Florida, the best crowd he could draw was... a few bewildered elderly, some younger types that look like they trade chastity jewelry with their local Catholic priest, and *squints* oh yes, the psychiatrist that got given the arse from her job at the children's hospital.
If memory serves, she was also the sole dissenter of six or seven mental health experts that insisted a particular Iranian refugee was at high risk of harm and needed to be moved out of the off-shore detention centre he was being held indefinitely in. The conservative government of the day decided to go with her advice.
Spoiler alert
He died.

Lot of brainworms broadcasting from Docklands today

QuoteIt's the centrist media that's the problem, Alistair Campbell, Robert Preston (or is it Peston) and Ian, from that Comedy programme, he has a moustache now, who is he? Iain Lee! Iain just wants to get back in the mainstream but you're out, come and join me in notoriety!

Also what he didn't realise about the people who used to like him before his cancellation were actually really stupid.

Also, it seems, Mathews and Hanlon just stopped returning his calls or picking up the phone when he's calls "at sone point it just becomes impossible to contact them"

Sebastian Cobb

Is Iain Lee a bigot or has he just fucked himself by falling out with multiple broadcasters and having a big public strop when he gets let go?

BennyHedgehog

He's confusingly claiming Iain Lee is part of the media and in turn part of the "problem" despite, for various reasons, being someone no one really listens to.

Anyways. Glinner now shouting at some one in chat for pointing out Matthews said Graham wasn't a bigot.

He seems a bit hyper

That reminds me the majority of racists you'll ever encounter never believe they themselves are racist.

It seems inherent that most people don't believe they are extreme but exercising what they believe as being common sense. Very few, usually only the very very worst, true psychopaths have that capacity to see outside themselves and objectively, dispassionately refer to themselves by whatever bigotry they follow.

I'd be ludicrously surprised if Iain were any kind of bigot, save for any youthful 2000s "lads lads lads" comedy stuff.

Quote from: shoulders on May 21, 2024, 05:57:46 PMThat reminds me the majority of racists you'll ever encounter never believe they themselves are racist.

It seems inherent that most people don't believe they are extreme but exercising what they believe as being common sense. Very few, usually only the very very worst, true psychopaths have that capacity to see outside themselves and objectively, dispassionately refer to themselves by whatever bigotry they follow.

Everyone's a good guy in their own perspective.

Morality's a strange thing though. If you don't believe in god then no perspective is innately better than any other, so there is no good or bad and it's just a case of consensus at any given time for a grouping of people.

What we have in humans (and sone other mammals share this) is a sense of fairness that perhaps evolved to help us survive as groups? Who knows.

Graham hasn't done a sexual assault or murder which most folk understand is bad.

This is a niche issue like the American presidential election or the difference between Marvel and DC. Normal people will likely be less informed.
Yes, with my mum, and she also thinks he's a cunt who's gone bananas.

Yeah as if it were some egregious act to take a job as manager of a mediocre women's football team, or that someone would transition in order to achieve that, or would even need to considering the number of male managers in women's football
This is exactly why Emma Hayes leaving Chelsea is such a huge deal. She's the most successful female manager in the UK, in a game where most managers are men.
