So while the Spectator continues to publish endless howls and hoots about the supposed insanity of the left, it's worth noting that the magazine has, in the last few years
- Been censured by the PCC for publishing racist hysterics (Rod Liddle)
- Pled guilty to publishing prejudicial information during the Stephen Lawrence murder trial (Liddle, again)
- Printed an article attempting to rehabilitate the Greek Nazi Golden Dawn party (Taki) and has
- Published a column by a convicted child molester, in which it permitted him to make snotty comments about the "sex abuse allegations industry" (Jonathan King).
To these fine displays of professionalism, we can now add Brendan O'Neill coming out in favour of pig-fucking.
I raise this issue, merely so that the next time one of the Spectator hacks complains about moral relativism at the Guardian, or about outbreaks of social media zoomerism and so on, somebody might point out that e.g. necrophilic bestiality isn't exactly democratic centrism.
We live in hope.
