John Cleese Points Out the Obvious About London, and Twitter Leftists’ Heads Explode

Published

on

The famous British actor John Cleese caused outrage on social media for declaring that London no longer feels like an “English city”.

Known for his performances in Monty Python, Cleese has gained notoriety for his Brexit support.

The actor wrote, “Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city anymore.”

“Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation. So there must be some truth in it,” Cleese stated.

Cleese is no right-winger but he does recognize that the city of London’s constituents are more in favor of Brussels control rather than local control.

Cleese added, “I note also that London was the UK city that voted most strongly to remain in the EU.”

 

However, social media pundits weren’t having it. They instantly construed Cleese’s comments as “racist”.

British journalist Jon Stone called the movie star a “bigot” for his recent comments.

Stone said, “The only thing damaging British culture here is John Cleese turning out to be a bigot and thus spoiling the enjoyment of his back-catalogue.”

The TV presenter Rick Edwards piled on saying “Just when you think you can’t love John Cleese anymore!! It turns out you can’t.”

Like clockwork, Brexit Remainers joined in the Cleese bashing fest.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan took a swipe at Cleese by comparing him to the character he played in Fawlty Towers, Basil Fawlty.

Khan said, “These comments make John Cleese sound like he’s in character as Basil Fawlty.”

The mayor added that “Londoners know that our diversity is our greatest strength. We are proudly the English capital, a European city and a global hub.”

Cleese, however, did not bow down to the outrage mob. The former actor doubled down and maintained that London has lost its Britishness. He also defended himself against allegations of racism.

In a tweet, Cleese set the record straight:

I suspect I should apologise for my affection for the Englishness of my upbringing, but in some ways I found it calmer, more polite, more humorous, less tabloid, and less money-oriented than the one that is replacing it.

Cleese’s comments about London aren’t without merit. Thanks to mass migration, the city’s demographics have shifted considerably. A new immigrant underclass has now emerged that is no longer assimilating like previous generations.

On top of that, most Londoners tend to be more receptive towards Brussels’ rule as opposed to having national sovereignty.

Narrative Buster: Media Ignores Milwaukee Molson Coors Mass Shooter

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
