Unwoke

If ever you needed evidence that right wing social commentators have completely lost it, it is all here.

Yes, for The Telegraph decides to use a photo of New Zealand’s Prime Minister embracing relatives of victims of a terrorist attack to accompany their assault on her “wokeness”.

Because, clearly, there’s nothing worse than a leader standing in solidarity with victims of mass murder.

How dare she don a headscarf and embrace a brown woman in a headwrap after a white supremacist shot dead 51 worshippers and injured 40 others using a semiautomatic shotgun at two mosques in South Island’s largest city.

By all means, take the Prime Minister to task for her handling of the economy. Confront her for her ideological worldview if you must. Robust discussion of her politics is no doubt a necessity in these times of economic uncertainty.

Yeah, but choosing a photo of her comforting victims of a racist rampage in an attack on her wokeness: sorry, that’s really scraping the barrel. Be better than that, if your arguments are of any value.
