Turns out I was wrong and that the guy behind @themadbrewery twitter handle is the guy who “milkshaked” Farage.
It’s amazing how hair loss can change the appearance of a person.
So not only is he now a convicted criminal, unemployed, fat and unnecessarily ugly* he is also losing his hair, and all at 32. Brian Epstein, Bruce Lee and Mama Cass never achieved this much before they died.
But yeah, political violence…whoo.
When I first saw the news that the guy had pleaded guilty to assault and criminal damage I went in search of his account to find he had locked it again but as per my duff old phone, it allowed me to see all the replies to him and quite a few caught my eye as I recognised their names.
One in particular a Mr. Matthew Curtis
What a total prat. The kind of bloke, or close approximation*, who hides behind the bully going “yeah!”
Then I noted a fundraiser had been started for the assailant to cover his costs and fines.
Oh…who’s that again…
Now granted you can add any name you want to these things, what is more shocking is the lowly fiver donation, perhaps the beer grift doesn’t pay that well after all, or maybe it is someone pretending to be him (or honestly has the same name).
Reading through twitter and the comments on the fund raiser you do have to laugh at the mental gymnastics of it all, especially from the prick that set it up.
How everyone detests Farage so this kind of violence is acceptable.
Detests? Hmmm, a synonym of detests is hate.
And throwing things at people is a crime.
Oh god, these people are justifying a “hate crime.”
“He shouldn’t have to face further punishment because he has already lost his job.”
Because only one of either the law courts or an accused employers should be responsible for the sentencing of a criminal. Shit, if only Ian Huntley was sacked from his job as a caretaker then he needn’t have been convicted of life imprisonment for the murder of two children, really the legal system is all backwards.
It’ll be fun, when part of your future employment is to have your financial transactions combed through.
“Let’s see, it says here Mr. Curtis you like to donate a fair bit to crowd funding sites.”
“Yes, I like to support people within the brewing industry.”
“Can you give us some examples, please?”
“Certainly, apart from my presence as a social media influencer I’ve also donated to getting new equipment for a whole manner of breweries in order that they may expand the out put and also to start ups.”
“Excellent; very commendable, who is this Paul Crowther you’ve donated to, was he the owner of a start up brewery?”
“He was a home brewer who was also convicted of criminal damage and assault.”
“Right. Thank you for your time.”
Lets get this straight. What anyone does with their own money is up to them but don’t be even so much as questioning someone else’s morals or political persuasions or thought or speech if you’re willing giving your money over to anyone who is a stranger and a criminal.
You may as well donate your money to the Nigerian generals that send you spam requests if that’s your view in life.
Thanks for reading.
