Despite being nearly two weeks old, the Brand/Ross affair (I, and I hope every other intelligent person refuses to use the term “Sachsgate” with anything other than the fucking contempt it deserves) continues to bubble away merrily, mainly because of that most odious of rags, The Daily Mail. Indeed, this scandal has basically revealed why it is the most illiberal mass of horse shit in the already rancid manure pile that is the mainstream media.
The Daily Mail, as well as the media in general, presume that they are well within their rights to tell us what we should and should not be offended by.
For example, the on Friday, Mail boldly proclaimed that:
The Mock The Week 'joke' about the Queen was far from the only offensive material on the BBC recently.
Ex-fucking-cuse me? You utter fucking cunts, offensive to whom? It certainly wasn’t offensive to me, nor do I expect to most of the 3 million odd viewers that Mock the Week gets. Not only this, but why put joke in an inverted comma? Even if you don’t find it funny, it’s still a joke, you cunts. Because I can tell you this, I, and again, probably most of the 3 million who watch Mock the Week certainly did.
But of course, because some of your hysterical members of staff find it offensive, the whole fucking country must find it offensive, shouldn’t they? Well fuck you, I am not going to let anyone, let alone the cunts at the Daily Mail dictate what I should and should not find offensive.
Do you know what I find offensive? A government that will happily piss our money up the wall while constantly passing immoral, illiberal acts of legislation because they think they know how to control my liberty better than myself.
Fuck them, fuck the Daily Mail and fuck the media as a whole, to be quite honest. Until those cunts stop telling people how they should think and those very people stop blindly listening, we’re not going to be able to make any real progress in purging ourselves of our current pathetic system.
