OUT THEY CRAWL, THUGS ALL
In case you were wondering, the filthy racists are alive and well in Malta. They were just cowering under some rock or other, like the revolting cowardly insects that they are. The death in custody that is now the subject of a criminal prosecution dragged them out, their reptilian eyes blinking in the glare of publicity now that they have reminded us of their sad existence.
I was featured, along with the other members of Pullicino Orlando's imaginary "Gang of Four", as a target for the racists' undying love, through their Facebook page "Daqshekk ghall-Immigrazzjoni Illegali f'Malta" (loosely translated to "Enough to Illegal Immigration in Malta") I trust the Commissioner of Police, to whom I have emailed a copy of this blog to make sure he sees it, will detail his cyber-crime unit to assess whether the thinly-veiled threats are worth investigating. As far as I am concerned, it's an honour to be singled out like this, but there's a limit to everything.
I've no idea who really forms part of this group, though a glance at the membership list shows a number of faux militaristic-looking types who are tailor-made for this sort of gathering of scum, to say nothing of a good smattering of Labour "faces". Anyone who is part of this group and hasn't yet removed him or herself is either a sympathiser or incapable of managing basic internet functions: either way, they should be ashamed of themselves, especially if they are part of the group in order to hoover up some cheap votes.
Obviously, the law must now take its course and justice must be served. It will not be served, however, by equivocating and humming and hawing about racism: it should be condemned, roundly, once and for all, and by all. Opportunistic blame-games, finger-pointing and fence-sitting, especially by politicians who perceive a vote or two amongst the racists, are no longer acceptable responses.
Do I sound like I'm having a good rant? That's as may be, but racism gets me that way and if any filthy racist scum thinks anything of it, all I can say is, fine, bring it on.
