If crowds of far-right protesters were gathering outside primary schools for weeks on end — and instrumentalising their children in the process — to noisily oppose race and religious equality teaching, we would definitely be outraged. And if those protesters downloaded spurious material from the internet to support their case, spreading false information throughout the nation, we would rightly call out their actions. But point out such double standards, and prepare to be shouted down and silenced. It just happened to me. It’s about something bigger, apparently. So it does not matter if truth and falsehood is mixed irreparably. The problem, it seems, is me. Join the mob, or be an outsider.
