Beer People Are…Fans of Assault

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.

Chorlton And the Wheelie Stupid Mike

Clearly a fascist. Milkshake this little old lady.

 

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…

Every commies favourite homophobic murderer

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!
