Laurie’s Been Tweet Deletin’
Violent Threats To Stab Vanish

“Any time one of my sisters mentions any past or present romantic disappointment I get the urge to hunt someone down with sharp things” read Laurie Penny’s twitter feed last night. Momentarily at least – the tweet was soon deleted. After making a living out of lambasting “violent misogyny” Laurie finds herself in the glass house of violent misandry…

      It’s why on sinking ships they say women and children first. Both are prone to arrested development.

      It’s also why men are builders, whereas women are narcissistic wreckers (and prolific money spenders too). In their lonely, child-like world all they are worried about is how they look and how they are perceived (think X-Factor contestants).

        So she is conforming beautifully to the leftwing feminist stereotype of being a hypocritical bitch who is a mirror of the sexist hate, that they themselves hate. She is an archetype of the fleck-mouthed ranter exuding hate. I recognise this as I am a right wing fleck mouthed ranter, only I do not dispute it.

        I accept that I hate the left and what they do to ordinary, striving working and middle classes. How they molly-coddle the lazy slackers and bend over in utter servitude to the uber rich elite whilst destroying social mobility. How they hate prejudice whilst being so full of hate and prejudice themselves against anyone who thinks a bit differently from them.

        I hate the sort of man hating feminist who does not desire equality with men, because they despise men, but who instead want to crush and destroy all traces of masculinity from society, whilst being overtly masculine themselves.

        I hate left wing hypocrisy.

        Sir William Waad says:

        To be fair, most women grow out of this shrewish phase quite early on, unless they intend to make a living out of it, like Rachel Cusk. We ought actually to welcome a degree of feminisation of society, because early 20th-century society became excessively masculinised with disastrous results. Marxism and Fascism were both intensely masculine, with their analytical, impersonal view of the world, their obsession with power and their vision of society as a machine.

      The main characteristic of being a celebrated lefty seems to be swimming in hypocrisy like a goldfish in water, with an equivalent level of self-awareness.

      That’s interesting to observe in itself, providing you can/will see it.

    Sigmund Fraud says:

    Romantic disappointment? Of all the things to get worked up about to the point of inflicting violence with pointy objects, the idea that some other person doesn’t love one of her hallitosic friends does not top many peoples’ list of reasonable things to motivate a slaying. I don’t often recommend therapy that doesn’t cost much, but this young lady seems to be in need of a hot cup of sweet tea and a sense of perspective. And her pal should try using toothpaste more often or switching off the lights when making her moves.

        The cure for penis envy is not available on the NHS, while the cure for bad breath can be found in any good supermarket for people not entitled to free presecriptions.

    By ‘sisters’ does she mean her actual sisters ie sharing the same parents kind of sisters or does she mean it in the wimmin sense of comrade-sister?

      by “Wimmin” this obviously denotes, connotes, and implies Wimmin in the full Glory of Socialist Sisterhood, – like wot me and all the uvva Sistrens share – as much as we share morphology (that’s body shape to you ignorant tory boys) – and all the other delights of shared beds, shared struggle, and straining for that last org’asm’c seizure.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Remember, Laurie spends much of her time in New York, where certain elements settle grievances with, shall we say, less upclose-and-personal weaponry:

    Wanting to do the job with “cutlery,” as it were, shows she is more conscientious with respect to public safety in general, as few innocent bystanders get knifed. However, Ms. Not-even-worth-a-farthing, it is well to remember that old adage about what not to bring to which occasion.


  19. 39

    Those who have difficulty in expressing themselves verbally or in writing often resort to violence. It is also said that violence is the first refuge of the incompetent, so we get Ms. Penny coming and going.

    • 54
      Tay King-dePisse says:

      However, there are some people who need to have their heads gone upside of, those with whom it is fruitless to attempt to reason, and a reasonable proportionate amount of violence probably should not be rejected out of hand as a first alternative, with respect to these individuals. Certain trolls on this and other blogs are the ones who prompt me to propose this strategy.

    Terrible But True says:

    Apparently, post-Jubilee, the BBC are going to pair her and Lord Prescott of the Green Room up to do an anger and outrage ‘sources claim’ series, called the ‘Two into One won’t go but we’ll make a stab at it anyway’ Show.

    It will, of course, bomb, but the twitterati will swoon and senior management, still on holiday in Tuscany, will proclaim they ‘got it about left (hence, right)’. Congrats all round.

    And the best part is… any iffy aspects and it can alllll be sorted in post. Then denied.

    Bar the internet bit. But no one takes that seriously, do they?

    I ask again ; who is this ” woman” whom you insist must be given coverage on your organ totally out of proportion to her own importance ?

    I use the term “woman ” loosely as she looks definitively prepubescent .

    Why does she not just imitate the action of the Garbo and closet herself away in an East Side appartment for the next thirty years thus doing humanity a good turn .

    ( that is assumind she can AFFORD an East Side appartment daahling– and she manages to pass the Residents Committee interview of course !)
