Further to Jeremy’s post about Tim Blair’s weird focus on dating profiles, I thought it was a good time to mention Tim’s repeated use of opponents’ physical appearance as ammunition against them.
There’s Irfan “Mesopotamia Fats” Yusuf, who Tim dislikes with passion because of his views on Islam and because he’s fat.
The greater danger to two-faced, five-chinned Irfan’s life is his own diet.
There’s Al “have a pie” Gore, who Tim dislikes because he believes in climate change and because he’s fat.
And there’s US politician Henry “snaggle teeth” Waxman, who Tim dislikes because he believes in climate change and because he’s ugly.
AIEEEEEEE! It’s alive!
By the way, in the “Mesopotamia Fats” post Tim alleges that Irfan sockpuppets at his own blog.
That’s a total of 32 [comments]. Subtract the three Irfan wrote himself—or at least the ones he put his name to—and you’ve got 29 comments posted since September 19.
Irfan tells me that Tim didn’t contact him prior to publishing the allegation.
Mark might be wearing a bollocks mask himself. For his sake, I hope he is.
