Shooting Politicians Is Wrong – An Example Of Left Wing Logic

From our Special Correspondent, Lincoln Swann:

Fuzzy lefty logic missing the target?

Exhibit A
Shooting paintballs at a picture of Jezza is wrong. All over the news
this week.

Exhibit B
A soon to be erected statue of Maggie in Lincolnshire should be used for
paintball target practice and hammer throwing, said the Guardian on 5
Feb 2019

Given that using representations of political figures for target
practice is acceptable to the Left, per Exhibit B, there must be some
significant different between these 2 cases.

Once we can establish what about the picture target of Male Hard Left
Wing Extremist ‘Lovely Magic Grandpa’ Jezza makes it unacceptable, and
makes acceptable a statue target of Female Moderate Right Wing ‘Evil
Witch’ Maggie, then the news can concentrate on that bit. Any ideas?

Have we reached the point where there is absolutely no ability for latitude to be shown? These soldiers go to sandy shite hole on our behalf (for good reasons or bad) and when blowing off a bit off steam create a almighty (manufactured) stink.

They’ll probably get sacked basically for no reason.

Well, we aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,

We’re just single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;

An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,

Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;

Do I need to give a citation?

In the Corbyn story, I haven’t seen any mention of it being paintball guns. There is a difference between paintball and live firing, although like others I do think our soldiers deserve some latitude.

Don’t see what difference the make-up of the projectiles makes.

Search for “non-lethal hardened wax substance” and you’ll see why it’s not being reported as live rounds.
