All hail Corbyn - part two.

So as I say we now have the darling of the left as leader of the opposition. A man who is as daft as Ken Livingstone and Diane Abbott -combined. ( ugh what a scary thought imagine the baby).

Christ I wish he wasn't a vegetarian, people already think we're a bunch of flower wearing lunatics.  Why cant the  vegetarians and vegans in the public eye be normal.
I'm sick of people thinking I'm some energy depleted grey skinned cabbage gobbler because I don't eat animal products and care deeply about the environment.

Why is the image of 'our kind' always portrayed like this. Not the numerous sports and film stars that are vegetarian /vegan. Who look bloody good on it and are normal.
No we get to be judged by grey old men like Corbyn. Who if caught out in a strong wind would be on route to Russia or Cuba.
Quick turn the fan on.

And why are we judged by so many people like this. Because let's be bloody honest.....We have bad, really bad spokespeople flying our flag.
Its usualy white boys and girls with dredlocks. Why? I've no ****ing idea. Why does the environmental movement allow these f***nuts to speak for us.
Or sanctimonious gobshites  who think the 7 billion of us could all live in a yurtz and grow our own organic food and be no blight on nature.
Yeah okay, bring the straight jacket,  these failed art students are in need of help.

I believe the reason the environmental/animal rights is so mired down in such a bad image is because the whole movement  has its roots in left wing thought and that we have tied ourselves in knots trying to be all inclusive.

Just recently I've had this experience with the hunt sabatuers. I was a great fan of these .. I say I was.
It turns out that they are funded by the anti-fascist network. This is the same mindset that funds apoligist orgs like hope not hate and the UAF.
They had a real problem with my past political idiocy. Even though I told them to check out my blog and see that I'm not some fire eyed racist. I don't think they ever did.
Anyways they graciously said I could join them if I renounced my past-er hello what's this blog about?
But I declined. I don't want to run about the hills with a group that I genuinely believe would not even exist if fox hunting was a cultural thing that people with black or brown skin participated in. No white people do it.
And more importantly, rich white people do it.

 I also attended another animal rights group that stated that dog fighting was on the increase.
Horrific ,yep you bet. But what pissed me of even more was the fact that the speaker then said 'but we have to be carefull how we handle this because its done by a lot of Asians, it's a cultural thing'

I was furious.  Sod ethnic sensitivities and cultural excuses. Wrong is wrong no matter which colour the arsehole is that's doing it.
The environmental movement needs to be more inclusive of politics. Stop being so obsesed with sensitivity and be more appealing to the masses.
bit like left wing politics really
