A couple of days ago, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen threatened Italian voters ahead of national elections. Today, the Italian people told her where to go. 馃嚠馃嚬
This is becoming a complete catastrophe
Scary. Now Ukrainian refugees, who are mostly women with children, are rightfully terrified at the prospect of Russian men, who flee from mobilization but not necessarily condemn the killing of Ukrainians, harassing them in Western countries where they hoped to be safe

This is an example of #FanBaiting, a PR tactic that provokes people in social media to react emotionally with the aim of labelling them -ists or -phobic. Used by bad actors and bad producers to shield themselves from criticism. @GCHQ and @metpoliceuk and @Ofcom should monitor it.
It couldn鈥檛 possibly be the British news coverage of a biracial couple 鈥nd the cunts in the UK, right?
#FanBaiting detected.
Are you blind? yes he sang, it wasn't opera my dear it was an anthem at a sad time, did you want a performance?

Fortnum and Mason has stopped calling police to catch shoplifters. Instead, it hires private detectives to investigate, then brings private prosecutions. They've lost faith in police to do police work.

I spoke w/ @elonmusk about Starlink in Iran, he gave me permission to share this: 鈥淪tarlink is now activated in Iran. It requires the use of terminals in-country, which I suspect the [Iranian] government will not support, but if anyone can get terminals into Iran, they will work"

And this is called #FanBaiting. PR tactic. Put a issue to stir controversy and start an emotional fight where in the end the fan-baiter will call the target a -ist or -phobic. It鈥檚 used by producers of bad programs and bad actors. @GCHQ should take a look at this.

It speaks volumes about a person when they'd rather insult or mock my concerns at women being assaulted and terrified in unisex changing rooms. It's easier to call me a bigot then engage with the issue of male violence. This is the most misogynistic time of my life.

"Don't you find it slightly depressing? The idea that free speech, a fundamental cornerstone value of our society, is now mistrusted?" Progressive people have suddenly become 'bigots,' broadcaster Andrew Doyle (@andrewdoyle_com) tells Hugo Rifkind on #TimesRadio.
