  • Right-wing idiots throw bricks at each other

    This is just for amusement purposes. The odious Rod Liddle yesterday wrote a blog post dissing the even more odious James Delingpole (climate change denier-in-chief on the right), calling him ‘politically correct’ for getting outraged over the 10:10 video.

    The film begins with a teacher explaining the 10:10 thing to her class of kids and asking them if they fancy doing anything to help cut carbon emissions. Most eagerly sign up, but two kids do not. The teacher says ok, fair enough, never mind – and then presses a red button and the recidivist kids explode, showering their class mates with gore. I saw the film and thought it quite funny, and nicely done and even self-deprecatingly ironic. And – here’s the point – if it had been George Monbiot and Lord Stern exploding I suspect James would have been howling with laughter, instead of foaming with indignation.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with Rod Liddle over this. But even a stopped clock shows the right time twice a day.

    Delingpole goes ballistic, with none of the ‘humour’ that Liddle attributes to him:

    Rod Liddle knows even less about Climate Change than I do about Millwall FC
    In a shameless attempt to win some readers for his little known Spectator blog, Rod Liddle has thrown together a desperate post with the highly offensive and almost certainly libellous headline The Politically Correct James Delingpole. It’s about my reaction to Richard Curtis’s ecofascist snuff movie No Pressure, which Rod reckons was overdone.

    See? It is sometimes amusing to read these head-bangers.

      Did you actually read both pieces? Liddle makes clear that the two of them are mates; if you read that, then the Delingpole piece reads very differently.

      “Little known Spectator blog”… “highly offensive and almost certainly libellous”… he’s taking the piss, Sunny.

      “Ballistic”? Irony clearly lost.

      I never thought I’d see the day sunny would quote withnail and I…

      I’m sure they’re chums. They’re too alike not to be.

      (By the way, Rod, James, using words like “libtard“? That wouldn’t be cool if you were a thirteen-year-old on 4chan. As middle-aged blokes it’s downright embarrassing. Like dancing at yer children’s disco.)

      James Delingpole does irony?

      He must have been being ironic when he posted that guy’s home address on his blog.

    5. Sunny — on 19th October, 2010 at 4:29 pm  

      Mr E - I did think that, but Delingpole goes on to actually defend his stance with a straight face and basically call him and Gilligan complete numpties on climate change (didn’t realise Delingpole had a PHD on the matter)… so I can’t take the irony defense that strongly.

      Whose face would you most like to smack, Delingpole’s or Liddle’s? They are both temptingly smackable, but I think I’d go for Delingpole.

      That’s great lateral thinking.

      Rod Liddle and Lutfur Rahman would have made a much better ”Come dine with me” TV programme than Rod and Derek Hatton did.
