I’ve never understood why people, in their twitter bios put stuff like “work for XYZ, all views my own.”
In this day and age of outrage no amount of extra followers putting who you work for gains you could measure up to the possible unemployment you face if you say the wrong thing.
It is even more daft if you have a personal account but choose to put you own political thoughts, as benign or as violent as you think they are, via your own business account.
As I wrote yesterday’s blog piece about the milkshaking of Nigel Farage; a supposed brewer claiming responsibility and of how politics and beer don’t mix well I thought to myself, I wonder if my favourite woke brewery has a take on this but that was only a thought and I couldn’t be bothered to expose myself to his witterings.
I went to the brewery opening (it is quite cringeworthy reading yourself back after all these years)
I wrote about his tweet about wanting Trump killed (and I’m promptly breaking the not shaming part of this piece but hey, if you’re an offence archaeologist, go hunt for that tweet, it will still be there).
I predicted the brewery might not make it to 2019 (I was clearly wrong, so far).
Lord give praise that today I get to pen my fourth piece of this wazzock because he has yet again come out and called not for the continued milkshaking but for the bricking of fascists.
On his business account.
What are fascists? Well start from Farage and then basically he will decree who else is to be bricked.
“We can save the world, we can free everyone, even those that didn’t realise they needed saving.”
Fortunately he then moved on to his own personal account to continue his war of words with anyone that wanted to have it out with him.
He probably thought his political insights sounded like…
Instead, as he rapidly approaches 50 he actually sounds like
His personal account is now locked.
To be fair to him; he is at least honest and knows the woke play book better than most, that you should never really apologise or your enemies will just keep piling on and on and on.
His business address is out there, his home address may be out there too.
I’m unsure how many staff he actually has put in danger because of his nonsense, though of course any violence that befalls anyone is solely on the perpetrator.
He did claim for a while that he wasn’t being serious (on the brewery account) hence the smiley he included in the initial tweet; though his true, raw and real violent thoughts were there for all to screen grab on his personal account.
Which then leads me to ask the question. If someone were to scrawl a swastika on the roller shutter of his brewery (please do not do this) but adds a smiley face, then it’s OK, it isn’t criminal damage, it isn’t anti-Semitic graffiti, it isn’t a violent threat?
The political hypocrisy in the beer world and the bloggers that report on it is real and putrid, but hey Communism is not fascism so yay!
Thanks for reading.
