LARPing With Liberals

Say, here's a question I've been wondering about: if liberals are so smart how come they keep getting taken in by obvious frauds like this?

It's a Scooby-Doo mystery all right!

I guess they didn't notice the cardboard helmets and that all the 'miners' had names like Julian and Roderick.

The important point though is that rich kids dressing up as working men is in no way like wearing socioeconomic blackface. No, siree, Jack.

As ever, the bias is annoying, but also strangely reassuring. Think about it this way: the left has spent forty years claiming that liberalism is the default, with conservatives as the loony outliers. Yet every time the BBC interviews some 'member of the public' who criticises the government, it turns out that he's actually a leftist nutcase.

Labour is the People's Party, providing you mean specifically the people who think there are ninety six genders but no valid reasons to criticise Diane Abbot. Other than that?  


Hence, the reliance on the Trustifarian Theater Company and a state broadcaster guaranteed not to ask any hard questions.... apparently 'scrutiny' isn't that important after all.
