The forever apology — 4 Comments

  1. It’s time for GrenfellTakesOffence.co.uk to be closed down. Nobody can say anything about Grenfell fire without some rentamouth appearing on Today (shy is it always Today?) to spew offence. The most recent offering was a Christian(!) pastor doing a more-in-anger-than-in-sorrow monologue; that is, without Beeboid interruption.

  2. What’s going on in this particular manufactured outrage, is that JRM – like most on here I guess – is someone who expects to take responsibility for his own life and actions, and upon finding himself in a burning building, will simply leave, regardless of whatever drivel is being spouted by state apparatchiks around him. After all, a major fire is practically the definition of a life-or-death situation; you don’t piss about, you just gtf.

    otoh, those pretending outrage are those who expect someone else to tell them what to do at all times and in all situations – even this situation, incredible as that might seem to us. To refuse the “official” instructions and think for oneself is heresy; it’s against their zeitgeist, they can’t imagine how anyone would be like that, it makes their heads explode.

    Hence the outrage.

    The dichotomy shows up all over the place, but this is an extreme example.
