Rod Liddle’s Racism.

with 7 comments

Left Foot Forward has a piece on Rod Liddle’s racist outbursts, well, they are not that, mere outbursts or throw away comments. They were written and printed in the cold light of day:

“F*** off back to where you’re from, then, you Muslims. Anjem Choudray, who dreamed up the march, is one of those thick-as-mince gobby little chancers who could only possibly come from Britain — Welling, Kent, in this particular case. “

And Liddle might become the editor of the British Independent ? It beggars belief, what an obnoxious and moronic individual he is.

According to his entry on Wiki (best taken with a handful of salt) Liddle was once a member of the Socialist Workers’ Party.

Hmm.

Update 1: It seems that Liddle has form.

Update 2: Thanks to Five Chinese Crackers who pointed me towards Charlotte Gore’s Rod Liddle Has Shit For Brains.

Update 3: There’s a Facebook group on Liddle’s activities.

Update 4: Over at the Torygraph Toby Young, who seems to have the intellectual calibre of a dog biscuit, is pitching for a job from Liddle in a rather blatant fashion.

  1. Thanks for posting this Mod. Being a Yank, I knew very little of Mr. Liddle other then seeing his documentary on the New Atheism on You Tube. This is rather enlighting and shows a different side of him, I did not know.

  2. Well Mesq,

    He use to work for the BBC, was fired, I think, years back.

    Seems like he’s gone down hill? Maybe doing what a lot of journalists do, drink? Not sure, but his views are a bit extreme for British journalists, overall.

  3. Seems like he would be a Daily Mail kinda of guy, giving red meat to BNP sympathizers.

  4. Yeah, but it is strange his decline, from raging ultra Lefty to pusher of BNP lite racism.

    I don’t like the Speccy, but it tended to be free market Tories and such like, not BNPers that read it, but it could have changed a lot since I last read it, a few decades back.

    Not sure.

  5. Liddle was in the SWP during his teens, see this Lynn Barber interview from 2003 where it is mentioned twice:
