Defence Against The Dark Arts
Confession, I spoke to a Tory, and I liked it. in the moment we seemed to get along, they were friendly, funny and I was so glad that they took time time to speak to me, a lowly prol.
And the confusing thing for me in dealing with this is that;
Conservatives are Evil
(Are they actually Evil? Ed )
(Saying quite possibly evil doesn’t seem nearly as provocative!)
(So you are going for provocative rather then rational debate? Ed)
(Well seems better then cowardly inserting a fictional debate with a fictional editor over the use of the word)
(Valid point Ed)
And a conversation with a Tory is akin to talking to Kaa in Jungle Book.
Now I don’t mean this to be offensive. No really I don’t. Individually Tories are as I mentioned friendly. They can be caring and passionate. And the people that vote Tory are certainly not evil.
Except for any that you know maybe are.
Wait what do we even mean by Evil?
Online Dictionary Definition: morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked
They have an incredible way to stick fast to what they believe, to phrase points and use information as if their answer was the only possible answer, in a way that New Labour can only dream. Well with the exception of ‘The Big Society’ which it seems can’t be got across at all. Well in any way other than, we want to cut everything and than expect you to do it for free Like the ‘Well-unfair’ state.
A former Conservative Councillor in Medway in a recent blog about the local Love Music Hate Racism event wrote.
It would be good to have a genuinely valuable topic for such events one day, such as “Love Music, Hate Mass-Murder” – but that wouldn’t be comfortable for Lefties, who collectively the world over encompass virtually all those who have committed deliberate mass-murder down the years. Still, at least it would have some real signifiance rather than mere tokenism. It’s a thought!
Its an interesting quote in that it makes you stop and go, what? I find it so hard to respond to. I feel my brain shutting down trying to find a suitable response, a polite response. I just stare at it.
Lefties, who collectively the world over encompass virtually all those who have committed deliberate mass-murder
Can somebody commit accidental mass-murder? is the best response I have so far come up with. and that’s just rubbish.
It’s a bit like oft used Basil Fawlty line about ‘don’t mention the war’. As long as we stay off certain topics then everything will be okay.
I find this continually confusing, how can a Party with Boris Johnson be all bad? Once a contender for great living Englishman. Based on Hair, cycling and a spectacular performance presenting HIGNFY.
I worry that we are not given enough training in the defence against these dark arts. It’s dangerous to dismiss them, they are after all are in power locally and nationally. Somebody, a lot of somebodies have voted for them.
And it seems the power of rational thought might not be strong enough to save me from them.
