Voltaire sighs

"We don't believe in free speech for Fascists"

Donna Guthrie
Unite Against Fascism

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster."

Friedrich Nietzche


  1. Afternoon Conan. Who's Donna Guthrie? Was she the one who organised the egg throwing thing?

  2. Aye subrosa, she's a spokesperson for Unite Against Fascism.

  3. She's an arse and a fascist.

  4. This poem is one of the most exploited and is used whether or not it is actually suitable to the topic at hand. How about an updated version:

    First they came from India
    And I did not speak out
    Because we owed it to the Indians

    Then they came from Pakistan
    And I did not speak out
    Because we had already let the Indians in

    Then they came from Somalia
    And I did not speak out
    Even though I wanted to

    Then they came from Poland
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was called a racist

    Then they came from everywhere
    And even though I tried to speak
    Nobody listened
