You may have noticed that liberals ain’t been liking, sharing and spluttering with their usual smug faux outrage over the past week or so. Funny that. You would’ve thought mass sexual assault on a previously unseen scale would’ve sent the algorithms of Facebook into a meltdown. But alas, no. Dead silence.
Now, here’s a rouse. Could it have something to do with the perpetrators being Muslim immigrants and the victims privileged white women? And hence, contradicting their core belief system? Does not compute. Beep, crash.
And when the likes of the Guardian and Independent realised they couldn’t get away with ignoring it anymore and had to at least come up with something. The excuses where so bafflingly idiotic (Read here and here) that not even the Facebook warriors bought it.
Then Bowie died. Everybody started liking, sharing, and pretending they loved the guy; Cologne was forgotten – business as usual (phew).
Incidentally I did (nay, still do) love the music of David Bowie. RIP.
