Whataboutism.
When an absolute tit who constantly cheers on political violence ends up becoming a victim of political violence themselves, people aren't going to feel too sorry for that person and can laugh at the irony and hypocrisy of the whole thing. Especially when they act like it's worst thing ever once it happens to them. That's not whataboutism and it doesn't mean you think it's right either.

That is of course if Jones' version of events are even true, which lets face, seems unlikely.

It's whataboutism because @Wordup was calling out hypocrisy of posters here. Since Jones doesn't post here, his own hypocrisy is irrelevant to the original point that Wordup was making. As an aside, yes Jones is a hypocrite amongst other things, but it has no bearing on the validity of whether posters here were being justifiably called out for hypocrisy or not.

It really isn’t difficult to understand is it?

How the fuck could anyone vote for these people.

They have a shadow Secretary of State for leaving the European Union who is doing everything he can to do the polar opposite .

Labours current position is as follows:

  1. campaign for a general election
  2. win the general election
  3. renegotiate a deal with the EU
  4. hold a referendum on the new deal
  5. campaign against the deal it negotiated
This is the most batshit strategy I have very heard of

Owen Jones and his made up beating is the epitome of left wing politics in 2019.

However, he is taking it one step further then the weird twitter accounts who make up Islamaphobic, Pro Brexit and Anti-LGBTQZAGSGSGS attacks that were apparently carried out by far right extremists.

What makes me laugh about a lot of these attacks is they claim they are too scared to contact the police but however are not too scared to tell social media with there face showing.

We have to believe Owen just like we have to believe random idiots on twitter claiming there are groups of white men walking the streets of the country attacking muslim women and Eastern Europeans. If we don't we are being oppressive to the poor minorities who have it as tough as a woman needing to scratch her scalp in Iran.

One thing we are defintley not doing however is believing statistics by government agencies which expose Islamic peadophile gangs, minority violence against British people and Anti-fa violence. That would be totally unacceptable to believe an oppressive agency built on the back of white supremacy but Owen was defintley beaten up

When they get released without charge due to lack of evidence this will somehow make Owen more of a victim and he will claim the police didn't investigate properly because they support hate crime lol
