Brandon Edmonds knows what time it is.
He’s just published a comprehensive take-down of the political sensibilities that underpin figures like Gareth Cliff (radio ‘personality’, self-proclaimed libertarian) and David Bullard (columnist), most pithily expressed as in: “Well, fuck you, Gareth Cliff, and David Bullard, and the ‘courtesy cars’ you drove in on. Fuck your racist, self-serving alternative-scenario porn.”
It’s a brilliant piece, full of verve (his other pieces at Mahala are too). It shimmers and slithers, and prickles, like the skin of some rough beast awakened, but the rage just in control and never allowed to get the better of the analysis. And it gives voice to something that I am sure many people think and feel.

I never knew Gareth Cliff was such a cunt. But as a relatively privileged white I’m not going to apologise for my existence either.
