The Left are panicking, the election is looming ever nearer and their Leader is looking ever more dire.
Miliband makes a decision, is forced to change his mind, and then proclaims that the U-turn conveys an image of strength, the power to make decisions.
The Left have lost the argument on climate, immigration, the economy, welfare and to cap it all UKIP are still riding high in the polls.
Still there’s always The Now Show to fall back on, along with a well used canned laughter track to, in the best Soviet fashion, give the impression everyone is going along with the joke.
Well known for its lefty leaning tendencies the show excelled this Saturday and kept the Right Wing bashing flowing….
Here Nick Doody(16 mins) entertains us with what might pass for comedy in…. well I can’t think of any place that it might pass as comedy…it’s an outright political tract…attacking the Right of course…..
Apparently the Hard Times have given rise to a scary new group of populist right wing parties…there’s Golden Dawn in Greece, the ‘unhinged’ Tea Party in the US and UKIP….now, don’t get him wrong, Doody’s not conflating UKIP with the BNP just because they have some of the same policies…but, well, actually he is…and oh yes…the Tories…not immune to this unpleasantness either he tells us….apparently they’re all just racists.
And as for welfare reform….he tells us ‘This argument is hard to make…because of the Right Wing media’….really? So Doody’s admitting this is not comedy but an ‘argument’.
And as for ‘Right Wing Media’…well the BBC is vastly more powerful with an enormous reach….I guess it must just be the Public using their own thought processes don’t like what you’ve got to say, nothing to do with the Daily Mail.
Oh yes….you may have noted he’s against all those nasty right wingers such as UKIP..and Tommy Robinson….you know the campaigner against extremist Islam…but…
Have you heard the one about the Racist BBC comic who didn’t know he was racist…I guess if you have the same policies as the EDL then you are EDL…eh Doody?
By Nick Doody himself:
On 10 October 2008, the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain is holding a conference called Political Islam, Sharia Law and Civil Society. They have assembled an impressive list of speakers….Oh yes, and me.
It can always be a little nerve-wracking, being a non-Muslim making jokes about Islam. On the one hand, there’s the risk of real reprisals – those people who were angered to the point of violence over what someone called a teddy bear are going to get really upset if they ever hear about what I’ve been calling them.
On the face of it, it looks promising (as long as I’m not on after Johann Hari – he always finishes with a song and is very hard to follow). The event is against the death penalty. Hey, I’m against the death penalty. It’s for standing up against theocracy. Guess what? Me too. Fighting for freedom of expression on behalf of the oppressed – wow, if the British Council of Ex-Muslims were a girl, she’d be my type. I wonder what they’re doing after the conference? If they’re anything like ex-Catholics, they’re great in bed, too.
Reviewers have described my material on Islam as both “easy” and “brave”, apparently depending on whether they were offended or not. In reality, it’s neither. Easy would be writing jokes from a knee-jerk position, pandering to the racists…..there’s the risk of being misunderstood by bigots, who think you’re on their side because they’ve heard some key words. You know the type: shiny-faced, shaven-headed Littlejohn larvae. “Too right – tell ‘em to take their mosques back to, er, Moscow!” I’ll take an edgy confrontation with an offended bunch of young Muslim men any day over a slap on the back and the offer of a pint from one of these twats.
Brave would be doing my act in Tehran.
No to Shariah law! No to the EDL!
Date: Saturday 21 November 2009
Confirmed speakers and performers include: Nazanin Afshin-Jam, Mina Ahadi, ‘AK47,’ Fari B, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Roy Brown, Nick Doody,
What’s the campaign about…..
- It is dangerous to incorporate religious laws
- It is not racist to criticise Islam
- We will have nothing to do with the English Defence League
- One Law for All is against the Beth Din too
- The pathetic excuse of much of the European Left is no better
- The battle against Sharia is against both the Islamists and the far right
- Please don’t export your Islamists, deal with them
Isn’t that exactly what the EDL want…apart from the ‘nothing to do with the EDL’ obviously’?
If only we could see ourselves as others see us……you’re clearly a racist Islamophobe Doody by your own logic…..oh hang on…you said it’s not racist to criticise Islam…all cool then with Tommy?
