Racism

He claimed that he was interested by the "look and aesthetic of fascism", but that he was not a racist and had actually challenged group members when they expressed such views.

LOL Can anyone spot any Death in June CDs in the background?

this is my favourite bit:
bbc said:
Three experts agreed Hannam was autistic and that this was relevant to his interest in fascism, an ideology historically associated with order and structure.
One said Hannam was well aware of what National Action stood for. The others said his autism meant it took him some time to realise the group was "morally bad".

Most cops are developmentally stunted teenagers tbh. It's part of the informal job description. Real cops either get involved in politics, or security intelligence.

It's why I've always found the phrase acab to be not nearly proletarian enough. Acai is much better - all cops are idiots, insofar as idiocy is the hallmark of the person who considers oneself to be the distinguished moral individual who rationalises away the limited constrained choices given to him by the existing society as a free autonomous will that the plebs are apparently too stupid to figure out for themselves. If only everyone behaved like me, but I can behave how I want!

Tbf I'm not the biggest Irvine Welsh fan but that Filth novel was good at illustrating this, whilst also being hilarious. Made me forget to watch a game where Liverpool battered us as well, so that's always a bonus.

I worked with a few ex-coppers before in a job for Newham Council. It was weird. The emotional repression was real. Really strange people.

One of my cousins is a copper, though a smart one. He's was working for the kidnap squad though recently moved on to some kind of intel gathering role. Funnily enough he was the guy who spent most of his teens and early 20s battering guys outside pubs. I wonder if there's a connection?

I mean the funny thing about coppers is they have that sort of same smug satisfaction with their discontentment that yer average self-help guru has. But whilst the amazon/ted talk guru is skilled at concealing her resentment of those above her and contempt of those below her in excessively hyperbolised positivity, the cop lets it out in the open. In that sense I'd be ashamed to be a copper if the likes of Eckhart Tolle can outwit me.

burroughs says somewhere that the police are "RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT" and that's all they know, can't find the exact quotation

pardon the dumb question but is there much of an asian population in the UK? we've had a sharp rise in random anti-asian violence, a few days ago a guy in midtown Manhattan randomly kicked a 65-year old woman in the stomach -- and then a few times in the head after she went down -- in the middle of the afternoon. turns out he was on parole after serving time for murdering his mum, so obviously some other serious issues there but still, he was yelling that she didn't belong here, etc. some of it's happening by racist MAGA types, after a year of trump spouting off about the "wuhan flu".

good @thirdform posts more like this and less insane abuse please

I'm always a gentlemanly geezer I'll have you know. Nothing you won't hear in the pubs of east London, or even in Burnley. Just straight talking. If that makes me an abuser, well, so be it.

It is the nice guys who are master manipulators at concealing their abuse, which is what I said upthread. Mine is all out in the open.

Depends what you mean by "Asian". I've found that in America it tends to mean East Asian. There's a fair-sized British Chinese population (many from HK, of course), but it's dwarfed by the South Asian population.

yeah, apologies for being vague. you're right, americans do tend to mean East Asian when they say Asian. Has then been any reported rise in anti-East Asian violence over there?
