Rachel Riley revealed her true self with her racist Apartheid ‘joke’

Rachel Riley does the numbers on Countdown. But she’s also appointed herself witchfinder general in a campaign to silence critics of Apartheid Israel with false accusations of antisemitism. (Full disclosure: she has dedicated a lot of that time to smearing The Canary.)

People are now calling for her to be sacked after her latest stunt backfired. Given Riley’s sorry history on racism, it’s about time.

The stunt

Riley shared an image of herself in a T-shirt. The T-shirt had on it a photoshopped image of Jeremy Corbyn’s arrest in the 1980s for protesting the racist Apartheid system in South Africa. In the original picture, Corbyn holds a placard that reads:

Start your day with The Canary News Digest

Fresh and fearless; get excellent independent journalism from The Canary, delivered straight to your inbox every morning.




Defend the right to demonstrate against Apartheid. Join this picket.

In Riley’s version, these words are replaced with:

Jeremy Corbyn is a racist endeavour

The words are a clapback at modern anti-Apartheid activists for branding Israel a ‘racist endeavour’.

Riley has quite literally erased the words of the anti-Apartheid movement to defend a modern Apartheid in Israel. She has hijacked a powerful symbol in the fight against anti-Black racism, and co-opted it for herself. She has essentially weaponised anti-racism for the purposes of racism.

People of colour, and their anti-racist allies, are done with this charlatan:

Former South African MP and Jewish anti-Apartheid campaigner Andrew Feinstein also railed at Riley:

Riley’s response so far has been to dismiss critics as ‘trolls’. She shared a long-ago-debunked fake news story by the Telegraph to claim a rift between Nelson Mandela and Corbyn. Again, Black Twitter stepped in to remind Riley that we know our own history:

This latest stunt is an egregious and revolting insult to people of colour. And it is entirely consistent with Riley’s abuse of anti-racist language to defend her own racist behaviour.

Riley’s tainted history

We don’t have to look very hard to find examples of Riley’s double standards on racism. Her tone-deafness to Black and ethnic-minority concerns is off the charts. In efforts to escalate her anti-Corbyn attacks to ever-higher levels of hyperbole, Riley is willing to invoke the most outrageous comparisons. Seriously, back in July, she compared the Durham Miners’ Gala to a KKK rally:

This act alone is more racially offensive than any word or deed by Jeremy Corbyn. Only someone privileged enough to never face the sort of racist wrath meted out by the KKK could make such an absurd comparison. The marching bands of Durham are unlikely to arrive on Riley’s lawn with a noose and burning torches, for example.

But to Riley and her merry band of hypocrites, they are the permanent priority victims. Despite being wealthy, white and platformed, they presume a deeper understanding and experience of racism than anyone else. And there is no double standard too glaring for them to make with a straight face.

Riley recently promoted the views of an anti-Corbyn heckler – even after he was exposed as sharing racist, homophobia and antisemitic posts in social media:

The hostile environment

Riley has claimed she’d vote Tory rather than vote for Corbyn. This despite Boris Johnson’s long history of sexist, homophobic and racist remarks. These include referring to gay men as “bumboys”, black people as “picanninnies” with “water-melon smiles”, and Muslim women as “letterboxes”. And that’s before we get to the Tory Islamophobia crisis, the Windrush scandal, Grenfell, and the ‘hostile environment’. Oh, and not forgetting how Tory leader of the house Jacob Rees-Mogg once gave an after-dinner speech to white supremacist group Traditional Britain.

No committed anti-racist would even consider supporting such a party. But in the Rachel Riley Hall of Mirrors, reality itself is inverted. I mean, this is the woman who joked about not looking like “a typical Jew”. What does “a typical Jew” look like, Rachel?

This rancid behaviour undermines the fight against all forms of racism and helps create a new kind of hostile environment. An environment where the Telegraph runs nonsense like this:

This litany of bigotry is far from exhaustive. But at this point, we could fill a book with the misdeeds of Rachel Riley.

A line in the sand

I live life as a gay, working-class woman of colour. And yet Riley regularly attempts to brand me and this outlet as racist. I reject her accusations. Not that she even merits the credibility to make them. Riley (in her own words) passes as white. This is not an option for people like me and countless others who are routinely subjected to racist abuse and discrimination. Yet she fails to acknowledge this privilege, or consider the lived experience of others, when tossing about these allegations like confetti.

To a cynical operator like Riley, the worst thing in the world is to be called a racist. But to an actual anti-racist, the worst thing is being racist.

As anti-racists, we assume there is racism within us. Growing up in a racist society, we will inevitably pick up conscious and unconscious ethnic biases. Our job is to hunt them out, and ditch them. And it’s a lifelong process. It’s the ongoing commitment to that process that makes a person truly anti-racist like, say, Corbyn.

What Riley does is performative anti-racism. She leverages the language of anti-racism purely for political ends. And she repeatedly tramples over the feelings of the LGBTQI+, Black, and Muslim communities. You’ll find she barely mentions antisemitism outside the prism of attacks on the Labour Party. And she actively supports the racist actions of Apartheid Israel. She ain’t no anti-racist, bruv.

Nevertheless, Riley continues to enjoy her minor celebrity status. And her anti-left witch hunt is promoted relentlessly by the media. She is even effectively platformed as an anti-bullying ambassador. We suggest you take a leaf out of the Riley playbook – it’s time for us to draw a line in the sand. It’s time to call out any organisation that promotes the bullshit tsunami that is Rachel Riley.

    1. I emailed Endemol Shine UK about Rachel Riley a few months ago. There response was basically ‘meh not our problem’. This woman went on Victoria Derbyshire and made out she was a victim of AS bullying when she is in fact a bully who associates with Gnasherjew, Sussex Friends of Israel. She bullied and harassed a 16 year old girl and her father to the point where the poor girl was on the verge of taking her own life. She is currently suing Mike Sivier of Vox Political Online for libel, along with Z list actress Tracy Ann Obermann. Mike has never published anything about either of them that was untrue.She is also behind the Twitter account Stop Funding Fake News which targeted the Canary amongst other pro-Corbyn media sites. It is time that Twitter and Facebook took some responsibility and banned her and her right wing anti-Corbyn followers from their platforms.

    2. As previously mentioned this ghastly tv person is suing Mike Sivier who was a journalist and is now a full time carer for his partner. Money is the key to justice it seems in a Tory world. so Riley and pal Obermann are betting on Mike not being able to fund his defence against this cruel attack upon him. I can only imagine the pressure he is under whilst trying to cope with everyday life. Awful people. I have contributed to his fund for justice I hope others will. Solidarity.

      http://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

    3. Surely what Rachel Riley is doing is committing the criminal offence of ‘Defamation of Character’, which if proven, carries significant fines and jail time?

      It can’t be that hard to prove she has already done major damage to Mike Sivier and Jeremy Corbyn (and others) with HER libellous and Defamatory claims, as she has done so, so very publicly. Her claims can be proven false, and can be proven to be a deliberate attempt to destroy the reputation and livelihood of others with lies.

      I suppose it doesn’t help that our Justice system is severely compromised by political interference as in the case of Julian Assange (just one high-profile example of many), but we must make people like Rachel Riley, Boris Johnson, and many others face the Justice we need.

      It strikes me that this coming General Election is a major fork-in-the-road for the UK, it’s not just about Brexit, or the NHS, but the very real danger that the likes of Rachel Riley, and their disgusting behaviour will become the permanent norm for life in Britain. We can’t let these lying, traitorous criminals (for that is what they truly are), destroy our country, our democracy, our legal system, our society, and our humanity.

      I have donated to Mike Sivier’s crowdjustice campaign, I sincerely hope the Law will punish Rachel Riley heavily and publicly, and help turn the tide on the tsunami of liars we seem to be inundated with, and forced to deal with these days.

      1. I agree with everything said in this comment. Rachel Riley and Tracy Obermann, plus Gnasherjew and the rest of the right wing Twitter miscreants should all be held criminally liable for the upset and misery they have caused and continue to try and cause

      2. The best way to deal with juts like Rachel and her mates is to take the wee wee (I suspect jimmy car may have been behind the ‘gag’ – it’s plausible – she’s a friend of his I think and he is a proper Israel-lover, and Rachel is not really very imaginative or intelligent at all. To the average brit her grooming in simple arithmetic is considered “mathematical genius” but she’s really not at all intelligent, whilst Jimmy Carr, though clearly sadistic, hypersexual, happy to take money from genocidal states, happy to use bankster loopholes but then pretend to be a man of the people, and also there’s a little more I know about him which like Holmes I may hold back permanently, real dirty, him and Pete Doherty both, very very dirty, and Carr is basically a man attached to much low calibre horror. Very low, trust me. So this is really JUST his sort of ‘joke’. He’s not stupid enough to let the public see it, but he’s “clever” enough to make it and has just the right balance of immorality and bravado. If it were him, he has fully convinced his lemming-friend Riley that it is “not racist”, although he knows in his heart it is, whereas she is too stupid to ever realise that (and will carry on like a robot, driving the racist nail deeper into the neoliberal coffin for all history to see). I have no idea if it really was him, not her – maybe it’s just his influence. But she really doesn’t seem (and never has) intelligent enough to me to be able to even write a knock knock joke, let alone try to compete with the private eyes of the world… Carr is the conceited and propaganda-fed fake-elite lowlife, I’d say. But to re-iterate this is PURE SPECULATION based on assessments I have made of Carr and Riley’s media work (not their politics) in the past, plus, as I said, some very low dirt I happen to know about Carr, which technically a few others in the media, many people in London, outside that, are well aware of, but they don’t know it (they don’t know which ‘famous’ name connects the dots or, indeed, what I know about that poor man, a nice guy, that one, too, but also an unfortunate soul… and how he connects Doherty and Carr is where the answer to how low they can limbo goes). (When I told one of Pete Doherty’s minders, who happen to meet me at a location I own, one time, the name and what I knew, the bouncer, the huge built tough bouncer turned very very pale. No. There are things Holmes keeps back for emergencies. Anyway Rachel Riley’s friends sink to some VERY VERY LOW depths if you care to look. She’s no Giles Brandreth, that’s for sure).

        So yeah. People like Carr (if he’s guilty of this), and certainly Hislop (publishing ridicule of shamima begum the weeks before her baby died and also the weeks before the terrorist attack on a new zealand mosque), Riley (just a girl giving all white british children a bad name globally), and many of those I have already ripped it out of at my ‘numberwang’ article (read it if you want some inspiration on how to rip it out of these juts) need to have the wee wee well-extracted from them.

        Humanity’s intellectuals are LAUGHING AT YOU ALL (ie all outside the west, ALL real intellectuals are laughing at YOU – not me, me they like. i don’t count as one of you, really) and it’s these juts causing it. You have to use that intellect on the juts and extract the wee wee. I will not blackball western intellectuals if they want to apply for membership to the global human “elite” (real, not p.r.-made)

        the judiciary is a joke. what value has a judgment from people locking assange up? take it to a higher plain

        sufis have taught: a bribe is a substitute for law and law is a substite for justice

        real justice is woven into the unfolding of our lives and of history

        ridicule this woman so much and so well people are worried that if they watch countdown people will think they are morons… may SLIGHTLY impact countdown’s budget and future

      3. just one further addition to what I said – I did some research and it’s easy to find the name of the person I knew and whom people I knew knew very very well, who connects Doherty to Carr, and Sadowitz is there too – another one linked to it;

        a search for ‘corbin’ at this page tells us ALL we need to know about how low sadowitz limbos:
        https://www.getintothis.co.uk/2017/10/jerry-sadowitz-at-the-epstein-theatre-liverpool/

        i will only ever share with the world what sherlock holmes would if he knew as much as me about what these people, between them, have clearly (known to authority and judiciary) been involved in!!

        just for reference, if any journalists are professionally curious, that is an interesting little story that one.

    4. i’m banned from facebook until just after the election, or i’d share this with you and others there; i won’t be offended if for any reason this is not material you want to keep on your page, then again perhaps there’s no reason. anyway, here is some VERY key info:

      Evidence of how far propaganda has penetrated the educated classes (I don’t mean the fact that Rachel Riley has proved my ‘claim’ that twitter and facebook are ‘the last outpost of white stupidity’).

      I will return to Bovary later today, but a highly pertinent incident must be reported by me here, shocking and painful, in many ways. I have a neighbour, a decent chap, a few blocks away from me, who is a nice guy, a fairly ‘intelligent’ man, about average for British educated classes, which is really not any different to the uneducated classes although the man I mention would not imagine so I would say, from our conversations, nor the rich gay apparently disgraced-royal I have met walking his dog by the river who told me that most British people without private education are stupid (and he also claimed that Corbyn had had a rent boy assassinated! Yes, he was trying to poison me against Corbyn. A lot of white gay men presume I am gay due to my being single and allegedly attractive and clean and so on – apparently even gay men fall for stereotypes and judge only by their own somewhat peculiarly prejudiced ideas, since I am not in fact gay) (or I’d be a lot richer, eh? Well) (I disappointed the gay man considerably when in response to his claim that Corbyn had had a rent boy killed to silence him and conceal Corbyn’s alleged bisexuality I was ‘impressed’ that Corbyn may be ‘bisexual’ – indicating that he was a far more enigmatic man than I’d been led to believe – although as I have written elsewhere, gay sex is to me in the same category as junk food, for health reasons).

      Anyway, so this man, like the gay royal dude I mention, certainly sees himself as better informed and more intelligent than the uneducated or the lowly-educated and he has a senior position with regard to organising the ballot – when I go to place my vote, he has an administrative role, possibly in charge, I got the impression, of organising that room and the people in it, and boxes etc.

      We are in Putney, and in 2017’s general election the tories won about 20,000 votes, Labour 19,000 and Lib dems 5,000.

      I told the man that for he thought that if the tories lose a few seats the lib dems may win, and I said that Labour were just behind and the Lib dems were MILES behind. He was sure that the lib dems had come in a close second to the tories! This is the man who organises the ballot boxes for this little locality in putney, for my road and those around. And that’s how far propaganda has deluded him. I said I had checked precisely at the time (ie 2017) and was sure, and he said he had too and was sure. LOOK how well propaganda fools people who think they are educated and intelligent.

      He also had not heard about the incident involving Kyle Pedley (see references below) or Rachel Riley and her t-shirt based insult, where she insulted all black people and this was justified by her and others as a way to ‘fight anti-semitism’ – yes, to Rachel Riley insulting all black people in the world is just one way to ‘fight against anti-semitism’ – just as to others bombing nations and killing millions of civilians is a way to ‘fight terrorism’ and indeed ‘anti-semitism’.

      So I was sad and disappointed partly, when I saw the result when I got home and checked (although not really that sad, as I was one of the 19,000 Labour votes!). I did not manage to check when I was with the guy because sadly a call from a relative came and I had to take it or I could have pointed his error out to him right there, ie proved the case. Maybe he’ll check himself, if not I’ll tell him when I see him next. The good news is it means Labour may well win this time. The Tory who had that 20,000 votes is Greening who has run away and isn’t standing again. Indicating she is scared and Labour will probably win Putney. The neighbour I mention, when I left him, was convinced that anyone can win, and that lib dems had second place at the last election and were very likely to win. That’s how well propaganda has taught you to belittle Corbyn or think less of him or overlook his strength and overlook the people who back him. This man ORGANISES the ballot round here! And that’s how little he knew about the vote, the very vote he is there organising! He’s a nice guy and this document isn’t here to insult him, but the extent propaganda has reached him is an important lesson to you all, particularly to all ‘white’ ‘educated’ Britons and all middle class token ‘educated’ non white Britons who don’t vote Labour, or won’t vote Corbyn, who will ‘vote lib dem’ (aka throwing your vote away whilst voting for nuke-waving racists who think non white skin is ‘funny’, some of them).

      Funny how he, and everyone else, has heard of the ‘anti-semitism’ various racists accuse Corbyn and his backers of, despite that being a false accusation, whilst the Pedley incident, which is HORRIFYING (imagine if they had said to a jew – how many times do you go to synagogue?) (Imagine if when out of the room about a jew they said ‘do we need a jew?’ Imagine the news coverage. My friend the ballot man would certainly know about THAT but he had NO IDEA AT ALL about the pedley incident (see below) it was totally news to him. Although when I told him he certainly believed it and digested it, he’s not like the many white men I have met and spoken to who are fucking racists and bitch about muslims and then when I reveal I am one, but I look white you see, which to them means non muslim, they say things like “but you’re different” (yes, I look white).

      Tragic. Absolutely tragic. Because it shows how few intelligent white Britons really are as informed and therefore as intelligent as they imagine. As the guy organising the ballot round here you’d think that he wouldn’t be misled into believing Labour didn’t come second, and the Lib dems weren’t hugely beaten – when the results were Tory 20,000, Labour 19,000 and Lib Dem 5,000 – and bear in mind tories had a 10,000 vote lead in the previous election before that, which means Labour caught up and almost won. To then go off imagining that the lib dems almost won and Labour was in third place is called being a victim of white racist propaganda.

      The neighbour I mention is a nice guy and I don’t like to write and publish this but given his role in the vote and his education and what his mistake clearly demonstrates to us all, I have a duty to share this info here, because it’s truly shocking. As for Riley’s claims about ‘prioritising’ racism – how come, then, Riley, you brainless pratt, how come nobody’s heard about the Kyle Pedley incident whilst at the same time the pretence of anti-semitism in Labour is clearly exaggerated when you look merely at the case numbers, let alone the facts outlined in the numberwang doc below. How come Riley you brainless pratt, how come when Pedley resigned due to the Islamophobic questions anyone anti-racist knows about now, it received fairly minimal coverage, reach and penetration. And how come nobody has other than myself asked what sort of reaction the press and society would have given if those Tories had asked a jewish candidate the same questions and had behind a jew’s back said “do we really need a jew?” instead of what they said “do we really need an asian?” (behind an asian muslim candidate’s back). No you don’t know what I’m talking about either Riley you white supremacist racist pratt do you? You don’t know about the Pedley incident either do you you racist pratt. Let that be a lesson to all ‘pretty white girls’ – you can look as pretty as you like but if it’s just a mask for white supremacist attitudes and immensely low morals, and a very ‘low calibre’, you may simply look like a hideous diseased cow to anyone who has any moral compass. You can’t conceal your repugnant persona in a slinky dress or behind make up Rachel you utter uttter moronic pratt. Personally I believe Rachel’s Israel-loving friend and tax loop-hole exploiter Jimmy Carr must have been behind the ‘joke’ which insulted all black people and other non white people in the world. Rachel doesn’t really have the capability for creating any form of ‘satire’ – even repugnant and offensive stuff. Maybe I’m wrong but I think Jimmy Carr may be behind that t-shirt, I dunno. If he is, he’s certainly not stupid enough to be seen in public with it, but sadly he has friends who are stupid enough, QED.

      (published at tvhobo if you want to see the original)

    5. Rachel who? Eye candy with a primary school skill for arithmetic? Racism is a complex issue, but there is a very simple principle: race doesn’t exist as a biological category. It is a cultural definition imposed on some by others or assumed by some to dominate others. There is one species and the differences between us are minor and peripheral. Just breath in and out of a paper bag for long enough and you’ll pass out. Everybody does. That’s our shared biological inheritance. That’s what Corbyn has been saying all his adult life.

    6. Those who bang on about “antisemitism” in the Labour party are often vertuesignaling racists themselves, whether it’s the likes of Norman Tebbit or MPs (whether Labour, Tory or Fib Dems) who voted for the 2014 immigration act which created the Windrush scandal.

    7. (just one additional doc to share here, explains itself)

      For 12 hours I won’t be able to post as Samuel Beckett on Twitter because I called Jimmy Carr a twat for having been one of the macho boorish puerile dickheads who egged on an old friend of some of my friends, a guy I knew briefly, Mark Blanco, not a bad guy but in many ways as much a puerile dick-waving boor as Jimmy Carr, Jerry Sadowitz, Rachel Riley, Katie Hopkins and Boris Johnson – who egged Mark on in his puerility and in the end, somehow, apparently unknown to the public, investigations appeared to reach very absurd conclusions, Mark was killed, or ‘killed himself’, at the home of what the Guardian calls an ‘ex drug dealer’ – crack dealer it appears – who sold crack, for example, to convicted as follows: <>. So Jimmy Carr can only stand the heat if it’s not switched on. If someone throws any kind of visceral remark back at HIM, he runs away, has them blocked – pretty sad, so Jimbo you only really know how to mock people ‘viscerally’ if they can’t answer back, you can be a bully, not a comedian. Sadly for you TVhobo is here, even if twitter is your bitch, to help me answer you back. Hopefully Mendoza will allow me to leave this for the public to take to your face on her comments page re Rachel Riley’s racism. How come Rachel Riley and Jimmy Carr are such lowlifes? How come Jimmy Carr and the sadisitically racist Jerry Sadowitz (of the Liverpool Epstein theatre) hang around with and back men killed in crack dens? Who knows? Not me. Their personal habits are their own.

      One of the points on my twitter wall right now, being seen by far less people because Jimmy Carr feels I have hurt his feelings and needs facebook to protect him from that, is that the ‘anti-semitism’ scandal is actually about white people, not about jews. Let’s get some direct quotes from my wall.

      <>

      <>

      <>

      As you can see, Twitter, Jimmy Carr, Rachel Riley, Channel Four – are gutless racists who actually endorse terrorist ideology, as did Dan Hodges, who drive terrorism, who can be given some responsiblity for victims of all terrorist attacks whether the Muslims in New Zealand, whether Londoners, people in Madrid, New York, Paris.

      It’s time to quote that Chris Floyd I held back on, leaning towards the Jeffrey St Clair style of editing away from my love of Alex Cockburn and Hunter S Thompson courage.

      <>

      The above is posted at Chris Floyd’s site/blog, see link in the references below, I ‘apologise’ to Floyd for using the full text of his post this time but then again, maybe that’s the point of his writing it, that people read the whole thing. Anyway, Jimmy Carr you are a gutless racist little child who makes vile jokes and when someone RIDICULES YOU you put your fingers in your ears and tell everyone to ignore them. Pathetic little boy.

      You know Jimmy Carr there are people who really enjoy it when I take the piss out of you in public, but you don’t want THEM to get any entertainment. Entertainment is reserved only for those who laugh at YOUR jokes and no one else. Sadly most of those people are racists and juvenile dickheads like Rachel Riley. Or shall we call her Racist Riley? Yes. That seems to fit.

      that happened; hodges wrote what he wrote; i called it out on hobo – i tweeted him. i told him that he was basically praising the ideology of terrorism. i think it was only a day or two later, at most, charlie hebdo happened; people with the same ideology as dan hodges did it

      so there really is no excuse for the puerility and juvenility and dickwaving and insulting racism of people like sadowitz and riley. #sackrachelriley

      As you can see, Twitter, Jimmy Carr, Rachel Riley, Channel Four – are gutless racists who actually endorse terrorist ideology, as did Dan Hodges, who drive terrorism, who can be given some responsiblity for victims of all terrorist attacks whether the Muslims in New Zealand, whether Londoners, people in Madrid, New York, Paris.

      It’s time to quote that Chris Floyd I held back on, leaning towards the Jeffrey St Clair style of editing away from my love of Alex Cockburn and Hunter S Thompson courage.

      In response to the mass slaughters this week, the “writer” and “political thinker” David French tweets:

      “Few things concentrate the mind more than the terrifying knowledge that a person might want to kill someone you love. It makes you aware of your acute vulnerability. [Here’s] why a criminal who comes to our house will face the business end of an AR-15….

      French then links to an article he wrote for National Review — complete with a picture of AR-15s “on sale while supplies last” — which speaks of death threats he’s received. (You will forgive me if I don’t link to the story. It’s not my job to feed the gibbering, moaning shade of William Buckley with the clicks he craves to ease his suffering in the shivering precincts of Hades.)

      Upon reading French’s chest-pounding discharge, I then gave what I believe is a reasoned, dispassionate, yea philosophical reply (edited here to eliminate the tweet-breaks):

      And what if they come IN blasting with the “business end” of an AR-15? The Dayton guy killed 9 people in 30 seconds, with cops there who had the “business end” of their guns primed to go. God, the sickening faux-toughness of you cringing, rightwing cowards.

      And by the way, I grew up in the so-called “real” America — the white rural South — that all you wingers have wet dreams about. And we slept with our goddamned doors unlocked. Why? Because back then there weren’t a million fake tough-guys running around substituting AR-15s for their manhood.

      And I’ll tell you something else for nothing. I’ve had death threats ever since I started criticizing YOUR dipshit leader Bush Jr. in print years ago. I get them now from your fellow rightwing fake tough guys. And I wouldn’t have one of your penis-substitutes in my house. Why?

      Because I’m not a cringing little coward who would put my own children at risk with deadly weapons in the house just so I can do John Wayne cosplay oiling the “business end” of my AR-15. The “business end” of your oiled metal dildo won’t keep you or your family safe from the gun culture you rightwing dipshits have been pushing for decades. YOU and all your fellow rightwing travellers have flooded the country with guns, even as your extremism — yes, even the “Never-Trumpers” — have pushed violence and hatred at every turn.

      You want to protect your family? Then fight against the gun culture, fight against rightwing hatred, fight against the disempowerment and despair you rightwing extremists have advanced for decades, fight against the militarization and brutalization of our whole society which both you and your fellow travellers, the “centrist,” interventionist neoliberal Democrats, have imposed on our collapsing, corroded, corrupted land.

      “Business end of an AR-15.” Jesus Christ, aren’t you ashamed before your family to be so damned pathetic?

      The above is posted at Chris Floyd’s site/blog, see link in the references below, I ‘apologise’ to Floyd for using the full text of his post this time but then again, maybe that’s the point of his writing it, that people read the whole thing. Anyway, Jimmy Carr you are a gutless racist little child who makes vile jokes and when someone RIDICULES YOU you put your fingers in your ears and tell everyone to ignore them. Pathetic little boy.

      You know Jimmy Carr there are people who really enjoy it when I take the piss out of you in public, but you don’t want THEM to get any entertainment. Entertainment is reserved only for those who laugh at YOUR jokes and no one else. Sadly most of those people are racists and juvenile dickheads like Rachel Riley. Or shall we call her Racist Riley? Yes. That seems to fit.
