  • simon g,

    Yesterday and today the Al Noor Mosque had two very different visitors: Destiny "Church" and Prince William. What a contrast.

    The latter gave a speech that was moving, heartfelt, personal. And - considering his position - remarkably direct. I'm no royalist, or celeb chaser, but I was seriously impressed. He went a lot further than "thoughts and prayers". It's worth reading/hearing the whole thing:

    Whereas Brian's boys can manage prayers, but seem incapable of thoughts.

    That nice Mr Molyneux is showing his true colours again.

    It's worth noting that the fraudulent "Free Speech Coalition" still have their website up, reminding us that Molyneux was the victim that really mattered to them. (They haven't said anything at all since May, so I guess there haven't been any free speech issues to worry about any more).

    Of course, the FSC can exercise their free speech to attack or defend whoever they want. Or to be silent, and stare at their shoes. It just so happens that there have been far more attacks by their supporters on Golriz Ghahraman than on Stefan Molyneux. Priorities and preferences ... all freely chosen. And saying so much.

    True colours indeed. More in this thread:

    And no matter how loudly the self-proclaimed freeze peach fundies get worked up, deplatforming & boycotts do actually get results. Deep down, we need to follow the dark money...

    I’ll leave the last word to the Grauniad: “The international far right’s potential to incite violence has been systematically underestimated and neglected by governments, security forces and tech firms over the past decade. To prevent future far-right terrorist acts, we need a more proactive, globally coordinated response, as we had in the global response to jihadism.”
