Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 15, 2018

An anti-Islamic nationalist wheeled a homemade gallows into central London, led a group of men into a conference hall and attempted to "arrest" the city's first Muslim mayor as he gave a speech on Saturday. The group failed, and was eventually escorted out by the same police officers they had asked to apprehend Mayor Sadiq Khan. They still managed to delay the speech for 15 minutes as they accused Khan of treachery, tyranny and disrespecting President Donald Trump. Khan stood up and resumed his speech. "It's a pleasure to be here," he said, "even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses." The crowd laughed at this. Outside in the lobby, his gallows still empty, [nationalist Davey] Russell continued to argue with police. He also asked for a refund on his ticket.

Let me help you since you seem word challenged.

Definition of fascism

Nice google searching there, dimwit. Now connect the dots: fascists in the US and elsewhere are fans of the current POTUS because they see his views and policies as compatible with their own. Does this bother you?

Fascists prefer the term "nationalist", but I don't believe in that political correctness crap.

I love this:

"One of the Pendragons walked up to Khan's table and showed him an American flag, which he was holding backward."

And this:

"Khan stood up and resumed his speech. "It's a pleasure to be here," he said, "even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses.""

I know from experience that not all people holding right wing views are idiots, but those that chose to represent them in public almost always seem to be.

If Snippy wants to see a fascist all he needs to do is look in the mirror.
