Thanks (I think) to Rob. I get a lot of submissions from people pointing me at Facebook Hate Groups but they are generally aren’t very funny. This one isn’t either but it’s quite instructive. I’d been wondering, like almost everyone else in the country, how the fuck three people could end up committing such stomach-churning crimes as have been endlessly and salaciously described by the media in the “Baby P” case. The fact that there were three of them makes it more confusing. You can’t quite grasp why none of them stopped it. The more I read the Facebook group of vengeful hate, the more I begin to understand. Having three of them in it together made it easier not harder for them to commit the crime. All that’s needed to turn normal people into monsters is a few other people all acting like this is normal. Witness the terrible power of groupthink, anger and stupidity:
But the evil bitch will b segregated,so other lags cant touch,she ought to b slowly tortured by decent mums like us
Tracey Hall (West Midlands)
If she was talking about anything else it’d be piss funny. I think it’s also quite interesting that you often hear politicians, journalists etc talking about “decent people” but, unlike Tracey, they’re slightly too smart to add that crucial “like us” on the end that lets you see that what they really mean. You can see it in the response to the leak of the BNP membership too. The “decent, like us” are gathering all over the internet and discussing what they should do to hurt the “indecent, like them”. It’s Saturday morning and I’m here to tell you that, as a species, we’re completely fucked.
Incidentally, I’m fairly sure that somebody, somewhere, makes a USB keyboard that has two fist sized buttons on it: a blue one (for the daddies) labelled “REST IN PEACE LITTLE MAN!!!” and a pink one (for the mummies) labelled “NOBODY CAN HURT YOU NOW LITTLE ANGLE!!!! XXX”.
