Bang on or just plain bigoted? Meet the British pensioner whose outspoken views on Islam, feminism and political correctness have racked up more than 60 million views

A British pensioner who boasts ‘I don’t care if you are offended’ has become an unlikely hit on YouTube for his outspoken opinions on controversial issues.

Pat Condell, 66, has 275,000 subscribers and has racked up more than 64 million views of his dead-pan monologues on issues including Islam, feminism, the EU and political correctness.

But Mr Condell, who was born in Ireland and lives in London, has attracted lots of criticism, from being called an ‘old fart’ to receiving death threats.

The truth is not bigoted.

    As usual the group of brain-dead zealots are incapable of formulating a sound rebuttal backing it up with facts, so they resort to name-calling, threats of violence and even death threats. I share with Mr. Condell the sentiment that I really don’t care if someone claims to be offended, as I no longer have the patience nor tolerance to put up with such crap.

      Condell is brilliant. Detractors who whine about his Irish roots, his sexual orientation, etc. in all likelihood have a bit of an allergy to truth. Condell rocks!

    Condell for PM

    Suck it, faggots.

  • Barrington Minge

    Pat Condell is the man!!

  • Spatchcocked

    MR Condell is of the gay persuasion…..not that there’s anything wrong with that of course……

    I like seeing homos with their heads screwed on right….Condell is the first gay Irishman I’ve ever heard of…..extraordinary that……and I’m Irish.

    And never mind all that bullshit about Oscar Wilde …..he was stitched up poor feller…..THAT was a put up job if I ever saw one.

    Pat Condell is one of the reasons I am still proud to be British.
    (and, no, I don’t care where he was born or whether he is Irish or a UK citizen.)

  • Condell is a bit cranky. And his videos look like they are produced from a broom closet in the laundry room. Sounds like my kind of guy!

  • Petrilia

    My only problem with Pat Condell is that he doesn’t make enough videos!

  • Notice how they frame it. Condell is a “pensioner” (the implication is that he’s retired). The man has been a professional comedian/performer all his working life (which is why he knows how to communicate in front of a camera). They make it sound like he’s some random doddery old chap who’s just been dismissed from the factory and is now barbling on over this silly telly whatsit.

    Seriously, Daily Mail, it’s always a bit of an effort to like you. Don’t try me too high.
