Dickhead of the Day: James Delingpole

Cretinous British twit James Delingpole, without a shred of evidence, offers up this dreck at The Telegraph:

We may just LURVE Michelle’s fashion sense. But Michelle doesn’t reciprocate our affection, one bit. Her broad-brush view of history associates Brits with the wicked white global hegemony responsible for the slave trade. Never mind that a white, Tory Englishman - William Wilberforce - brought the slave trade to an end. Judging by her record, Michelle does not make room for such subtle nuance.

It’s a fairly rare occurrence when I feel like hopping on a plane and beating the piss out of an Englishman, but this is one of those times I would LURVE to do it. Should I set up a PayPal account for ticket donations? I’m serious.  Look at that face.  How can it not be punched?

I see three horses’ asses in that picture but I don’t see who you’re ... Oh my God that poor deformed horse ... Wait.

Christ, on the one hand I’d gladly contribute to your fund. On the other, any beating you administer is certain to improve his looks and he doesn’t deserve that.

Plus, if I can’t go why should you have all the fun?

A couple of commenters think there are flaws in his argument:

Congratulations James - your argument is entirely evidence free since you have produced not one single observation by the First Lady relating to Britain. Have you thought of taking up theology?

Most of the other commenters seem to be PUMAs.  And Obama’s huge snub of Gordon Brown seems to be mostly made up by the ever willing MSM.

Awww yeah, beating up a snooty Brit, can I go too? Hell, my cousin Moira’s maternal grandfather was a founding member of Fianna Fail so I could get in a few blows for him, an avowed man of peace and non-violence.

Hmmmm, I believe we have a couple of British Roastafarians to whom we could outsource the twit-pummeling. What a gigantic douchenozzle.

Maybe we can enlist the help of Breakfast Man.

Squire Delingpole deserves a good healthy slap just for the red gentry jacket.  Yes, a firm and swift open-hand resulting in a red face, slack-jawwed, teary-eyed punished punk look of no retaliationy humiliation and resignation.  I will contribute generously.

Hmmmm, I believe we have a couple of British Roastafarians to whom we could outsource the twit-pummeling.

Indeed. I’d gladly oblige, but we’re talking about the Torygraph here. I go down there and start pummeling, there’s every chance I just won’t be able to stop.

Aha. I see your illustrious leader is on the case himself.

No word of a visit to the Torygraph offices yet, but I’m sure the equerries can figure something out.

Meanwhile, old lefty rag The Guardian‘s John Crace gave Delingpole a small wedgie a while back for the drivel he spouted in one of his books.

Delingpole’s a minor star and darling of the UK craven right. He’s not all that, but the bar’s set pretty low. To place his remarks about Michelle in some sort of context, another of his books was titled: Welcome to Obamaland: I Have Seen Your Future and It Doesn’t Work. Coming from someone who aspires to be a snootier version of P.J. O’Rourke, that’s got to hurt. On his commission to hack out that screed, he admitted:

Mind you, there were a couple of obstacles which at first seemed insurmount-able. The first was that Harry wanted the book delivered in a month and the second was that, it being published only in America for a US audience, the project seemed to require rather more knowledge about US politics than I have or ever will possess.

One minor irony is that if I were still working for one of my past publishers, there’s every chance I’d have had to proofread the thing.

Anyway, if you’re still looking for a hitman, I’d heartily recommend, as always, Charlie Brooker:

At least Delingpole succeeds in improving the image of the upper classes. Whenever he opens his mouth to defend them, they magically become 50 times less irritating. Than him.

Having established his credentials, James (who went to Oxford) sets out on “a journey” to discover just what it is about the gentry that gives him such a broom-handle.

I like this Charlie Brooker fellow. Thanks, Brit!

I like this Charlie Brooker fellow.

His main gig is as a TV critic, and he’s made some excellent, and often hysterically funny, programs in his BBC4 “Screen Wipe” series, in case they ever make it to YouTube.

In his Guardian TV column, he often tangientally lets loose on wider targets.

I’d wager that his attitude to the likes of Delingpole is more representative of British public opinion than the Torygraph, just as I’d wager that the influx of RW wankers on that rabid blatt’s comments pages is less representative of US public opinion than the assorted scribblings on this blog.
