If you’re about to comment on Barcelona attack, pause: imagine what the terrorists behind the attack would like you to post.

  • Anti-Islamic? Tick.
  • Anti-immigrant? Tick.
  • Anti-refugee? Tick.
  • This is a war? Tick.
  • A bit of ‘whataboutery’? Our tragedy is greater than your tragedy? Tick.
  • This is the UK’s/the US’s/Europe’s/the Arab governments’ fault? Tick.

Don’t let the terrorists work you like a ventriloquist’s doll. Unless, of course, you enjoy having someone’s hand up your arse.

[This is an updated version of a posting from November 2015, written in the aftermath of the Paris attacks. I suspect I might have cause to update it again. And again. And again.]
