The Guardian columnist Charlie Brooker, who openly pleads for someone to assassinate George W. Bush:
On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod’s law dictates he’ll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr – where are you now that we need you?
Lovely. He’s inciting assassins. I’m not sure how anyone can defend this column other than his domestic partner, whom Brooker might feed with the proceeds. He’s the equivalent of a white man calling for jihad in that he wants someone else to martyr himself/herself for a greater good revealed only to him.
I am going to stop typing now, because the more I go on, the madder I get, and it’s too lovely of a Saturday for that.
