Fight ! Fight ! Fight !

Faisal Bodi has a post at Comment Is Free.

So does Sunny Hundal.

Faisal comments on Sunny's piece. It's now deleted, but according to this response :

"Coconut by name, coconut by nature. Why does it take a white columnist to echo your views for you to feel vindicated? That inferiority complex just won't go away, will it Sunny?"

Boom ! Boom ! Georgina Henry picks off Faisal's comment with one barrel and with the other takes out his CiF piece.

Faisal Bodi's comment about Sunny Hundal has been deleted from this thread. We have enough problems with commenters who breach the talk policy, let alone the bloggers themselves. That's why his post has also been taken down.

Ms Henry then devoted a longish post to justifying her decision, which has since been removed so thoroughly that "its body is buried as though it has never been". I'll try and find it in the cache.

But its main theme was outrage at the 'racist' coconut slur (i.e. he's brown outside but white inside - see also Bounty Bar). To Georgina, as to most guilty white liberals, there's no worse accusation than calling someone white. If the recipient IS a white person, then it's rude to point out their deformity - if they're black, brown or yellow than it's a deadly insult. Ms Henry's not a big William Blake fan.

It's been a busy week for Georgina Henry. She also had to take down this thread

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,2127304,00.html

because of the sheer amount of anti-semitic vitriol posted by the elite of the British liberal left.

A couple of vintage Bodiisms from 2002:

'In one sense it does not matter who the Bali culprits are. Ultimately the victims, as with the events following September 11, will be Muslims.'

'Islamic tradition teaches us that another of the portents of the last day will be an almighty war between the Islamic and the Judaeo-Christian world. Even if that day is far away, the war on terror is driving ordinary Muslims into an apocalyptic frame of mind. That, surely, cannot be conducive to the world peace and security which, we are told, is its aim.'

It would appear that comment is not free.
