Owen Jones - asshole leftist

What is it with the far-left and violence?

Thanks to Guido Fawkes, I learn that the left-wing author Owen Jones has just appeared at the Sinn Fein summer school in Ireland. According to Sinn Fein’s own newspaper, Owen used the opportunity to praise Sinn Fein’s ‘progressive’ politics, suggest that people take inspiration from the 1916 Easter Rising and announce what a ‘passionate believer’ he apparently is in a united Ireland.

There are a number of interesting things about this. The first is that it exposes what a sham the far-left’s attitude towards political violence really is. Owen isn’t the first person of his ilk to have supported Sinn Fein. For decades there has been a dirty line-up of far-left figures who have done the same. For instance the man Owen wants to be the next Labour leader – Jeremy Corbyn – was chumming up to Sinn Fein even while their military wing was blowing up ordinary pub-goers, shooting farmers in the head and planting bombs in Britain’s shopping centres.

    No stories here on BCF yet about the traitorous jew scum Pollard being granted his parole?

    Liberalism is a cult of hate and violence. Always has been. Always will be.

    • Alain

      Absolutely which is something it shares with the cult of Islam along with being totalitarian/anti-freedom.

  • Tom Forsythe

    It is like the Matrix. They see anyone who disagrees with them as “still wired into the system,” and therefore a legitimate target.

    The IRA, when they haven’t been involved in bombings, uprisings, and murder to enforce their will, is essentially an organized crime syndicate.
    They are “the Mafia” in Northern Ireland and control the drug and smuggling trades, enforce street taxes on petty criminals, extortion and protection rackets against legitimate businesses in addition to saddling unions and garbage collection businesses with “phantom employees” that collect paycheck but don’t actually do any work.
    The IRA are scum, as is anyone who supports them.

      I had never heard of this idiot so I looked up his website and his is how he describes himself

      Jones was born in Sheffield and grew up in Stockport, Greater Manchester and briefly in Falkirk, Scotland. His father was a local authority worker and trade-union shop steward, and his mother is an IT lecturer. He describes himself as a “4th generation socialist”; his grandfather was involved with the Communist Party and his parents met as members of the Trotskyist Militant tendency.

      He goes on to say he is an active feminist – which means he’s been neutered; that he’s anti-monarchy and he’s openly gay and believes in removing the minimum age of consent.

      I’d say he’s a typical lefty.

    “By any means necessary” used to be the mantra of the fringe of the left like the ARA but made it’s way into the mainstream about 15 years ago. We are now seeing the leading voices of the left being people raised with this idea their whole political lives. It will get worse.
