  1. Yes but now we are playing them at their own game fight fire with fire.
  2. Getting some traction. Taken from the Herald we are starting to get to them have cut and pasted to save clicks to them key bit Warning: Unionists can learn cancel culture too People on the nationalist left have tended to dominate Twitter in the past. Rangers supporters are often portrayed on the site as right wing bigots. But it looks as if the unionist right is now beginning to learn the darks art of cancel culture. By Iain Macwhirter full article Last week two contributors to a Rangers football podcast, Heart and Hand, resigned after the Daily Record revealed historic tweets of an offensive and sectarian nature. What happened next has become a kind of morality tale for the era of cancel culture. Rangers fans trawled the Twitter accounts of journalists who are or have been employed by the Daily Record and discovered a litany of sexist, racist, homophobic, misogynistic and sectarian tweets apparently from bylined hacks. The kind of things some men say in the pub - or used to say. The insults are familiar to anyone of my generation. But seeing them in cold print is still shocking. The Record admitted these posts, said it takes any claims of discrimination “very seriously” and launched a “full investigation”. Nothing has been heard since. There have been no resignations from journalists or from the editors who employed them. But there was some collateral damage. The comedian Janey Godley, the public face for the Scottish Government’s coronavirus campaign, has been a prolific Twitter user over the years and many of her offensive tweets also came to light. Godley’s posts mainly involved language derogatory of homosexuals and people with mental or physical disabilities. There was also extremely lurid sexual abuse. Ms Godley appears to have a fixation with burns injuries and Chernobyl victims. She confessed to a catalogue of “horridly offensive, hurtful and shocking” tweets and has apologised. It might seem hard to believe that someone using this language could remain the face of a government health information film. But Ms Godley has been vigorously defended by influential friends on social media who say she should be forgiven for her excessive language because she is a woman who has been the victim herself of social media abuse. Ms Godley’s defenders are often people who would be the most enthusiastic advocates of action against the Rangers figures who started this whole chain of events. Such is the hypocritical morality of Twitter. We make honest mistakes in the heat of the moment; you are evil bigots who should be prosecuted for hate crime. People on the nationalist left have tended to dominate Twitter in the past. Rangers supporters are often portrayed on the site as right wing bigots. But it looks as if the unionist right is now beginning to learn the darks art of cancel culture.
