Note the use of that ridiculous phrase 'islamo-anarchists'

I'm not usually one to have a go at the trots, generally because half the time its just a waste of energy but for fucks sake, if he's going to smear anarchists he could at least do without such an obvious lie.

To be honest, I'm surprised he didn't get a picture of me and say "see! right there!" grin

What is really galling is his line that he is using the term "Islamo-Anarchist" to counter the use of the term "Islamo-Fascist".

How is it inappropriate to use the term fascist to discuss a group of zealots who hate jews, gays, women, and socialists, have an over burdening code of personal behaviour that is inflicted on all, and would freely use prison, capital and corporal punishment to those who do not follow that code?

Well I don't think he did use the term to 'counter' the used of fascist. He just thought he'd act all intellectual like the lefty trend setter he is by thinking up his own...and then defending it. Poorly.

As Burchersapron would say -- bluffer roll eyes

Edit: Taiq Ali. The Simon Schama of left intellectuals? Anyone remember the swiftly-ditched 'Radio Einstein' project? grin

Who's bothered by what this clapped out old Trot thinks anyway?

Did anyone think someone who thought that "Radio Einstein" was a good idea would come up with a reasonable analysis?

Ali is typical of the 'intellectual' cadre of british Trottish- ego size in inverse proportion to political significance/effectiveness.
