Moron of the Moment – Owen Jones

Owen Jones has yet again proven himself to be nothing but a self-indulgent berk in banging on about ‘cancel culture’ and the right ‘playing the victim’ card

Owen Jones just cannot help himself. A constant attention seeker, the author of Chavs has waded into the debate about ‘cancel culture’ – a new description for “the withdrawal of support or admiration for someone after an alleged misstep” – and as per usual made an utter arse of himself.

 

Aside from correctly describing himself as “sad” on his Twitter handle, Jones rarely gets much right and in his Guardian column today, this left-wing loudmouth achieved nothing in banging on about another of his favourite topics, that of ‘victimhood.’

 

Forever one prone to leaping on the status of being a ‘victim’ himself, Jones’ argued “millennials complaining on Twitter” are “better to be seen as the victim rather than the aggressor” when it comes to “brutal battlegrounds of the culture war.” His oversimplified view was rightly “slapped down” as “destroying democracy” previously last week by Piers Morgan and again now it should be dealt with similarly. If indeed anything should be cancelled, it is quite simply Owen Jones.

  1. I unfollowed him about a week ago. There was a time when he genuinely had interesting things to say. He made a video just before the EU referendum which was extraordinarily prescient. He not only correctly predicted that Britain would vote to leave, but that Cameron and Osborne would resign, there would be an early general election, a coup against Jeremy Corbyn, the hard right of the Conservative party would take over, and there would be a renewed appetite for Scottish independence.

    If he’d continued with this type of insightful analysis, he could have really made a name for himself as a serious journalist. Instead, his Twitter feed has become that of an increasingly tedious Social Justice Warrior. Especially since he jumped on the transgender bandwagon, He attacks anyone who disagrees with him by either playing the bigot card, by trying to get them banned from Twitter, or even, in a few cases, by going after their jobs. The recent flaying of JK Rowling on social media (in which he has played a prominent role) is one example of this. I myself have issues with Ms Rowling in the past, but she is right to raise concerns about an aggressive lobby group, impacts on health, and the rights of women being eroded.
