Keen to know how a hashtag celebrating the idea of the death of a living woman trended for over a day on this platform devoted apparently to the removal of hate speech.
I note some saying I've missed the nuance between calling for her actual death and the death of her career/credibility. This would be similar I guess to missing the nuance between "an author" and "one aspect of one of her characters".
I note also that one person said I'd swallowed the right-wing narrative. You see that a lot on here: no intellectual perspective, just stamping the point you don't agree with as "Wrong Tribe".

I wore blackface in TV sketches 25 years ago. I have apologised. I will apologise now again: it was wrong. It was racist. I am sorry. Now. If Kerry would like to show me where I've said standing with Palestine is racist, and shown dedication to Apartheid, that would be great.
Here btw, was my most recent apology in The Daily Telegraph, at the start of May.
Unless this is what @TheMendozaWoman means. In which case her bar for full-throated unstinting far-right racist support for the Apartheid Zionist entity is kind of low.
