And another Silverback shows his ass (in which I employ a lot of swears)
Jesus Effing Christ.
I thought I’d manage to distance myself from Silverback assholes who talk complete bollocks. Tank you, David Starkey, for proving me wrong. Proof positive that you can get a job as a pundit by being a Silverback, and still come off as a total fucking racist eejit. Actually, there are other words that come to mind, but I am trying to retrain myself to avoid my knee-jerk reaction of using gendered adjectives as insults.
I hope to hell that this little performance removes any chance of his getting an OBE ever. Because … well … Jinty Nelson vs. David Starky? like going to Zaire and replacing Ali or Frazier with Homer Simpson.
and by the way? It is exactly this kind of shit I was grousing about in my last post. I’ll take a side of clueless asshole with my unchecked privilege, please.
ETA: Belle points out that actual Silverbacks are pretty damned cool. They are indeed. And nothing like the human sort. But I can’t think of another good word for that particular group…
