A thread for the terribly bad ideas of the world. The ones that just make you scratch your head and think, “Dude, what the fuck were you thinking? This is a shit idea!”

The thread inspiration comes from this tale, of Snapchat thinking a Bob Marley themed filter to celebrate 420 - complete with Blackface functionality - would be a good idea.

Who the fuck OK’d this? How did you not anticipate the reaction to this? Nevermind the fact you are taking a music legend, revolutionary and important humanitarian and reducing him to a stoner with a hat. God it’s a dumb move. £10 says this idea came from a room of nothing but middle-aged white dudes.

Is Bob Marley music good srs? I only know the famous songs like the one where he shot the sheriff and the one about the little birds and they sound terrible to me like children music, but is it that his Album Songs are really good or something, or is it that I just don’t know Musical Genius when I hear it?

Love Bob.

Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Tila Tequila pays tribute to her ‘soul mate’ Adolf Hitler on his birthday

She was kicked off the 2015 series of Celebrity Big Brother after her controversial views about Adolf Hitler came to light, but that hasn’t stopped Tila Tequila from singing his praises.

The reality TV star has sparked outrage yet again after posting a tribute to the late leader of the Nazi party on his birthday.

‘And happy birthday to my past life historical figure, most epic legend of all time, Mein Furhor, Adolf Hitila! ,’ she wrote on Wednesday.

‘The MOST HIGH! … Happy Birthday, mein Furhor! The most high! #420 #Soulmates #PastLife #Reunited #HailHitila … We all knew this day was coming! The 2nd coming of Christ in the end times prophecy has been fulfilled! #HeilHitila.’

Tila, who has a one-year-old daughter, also posted a number of pictures in tribute including a photoshopped snap of her sitting alongside her ‘hero’.

The 34-year-old is known for posting some rather bizarre and downright offensive comments on social media, however her numerous remarks about Hitler and the Nazis are probably the most controversial.

Tila was booted out of CBB last year when Channel 5 producers were alerted to her posts, including an image of herself in an SS uniform hat and swastika armband which posted on her Facebook page in 2013.

‘Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in Celebrity Big Brother,’ a spokesperson for the show said in a statement.

‘When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.

‘The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable.’

Tila – whose real name is Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen – also caused controversy over a post on her website entitled Why I Sympathise With Hitler, Part I.

The TV star, who was born in Singapore to Vietnamese parents, fronted her own bisexual dating show, A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila back in 2007.

She also appeared in a sex tape in 2011, which she claimed was released without her consent.

Rumours she has been dating Prince Harry are yet to be confirmed.

Telling the Ayatollah that watching her run the Southampton Half Marathon was a shit idea.

Ah Britain First, that little band of bellends so pathetic it’d be comedic if it wasn’t so utterly depressing.

Following on from similar stunts, that have gone so well for them, Patriot Paul led this little expedition over the weekend.

Britain First just tried to ‘invade’ a halal slaughterhouse. It went badly

Did you have a nice Bank Holiday weekend? Oh good yes us too. Clearly you’re not a member of Britain First, who decided to spend their extra time off “invading” a halal slaughterhouse to “expose” the practice.

A video posted to the far-right group’s Facebook page on Monday evening shows deputy leader Jayda Fransen and several other Britain First members force their way into the floor of a slaughterhouse.

Fransen screams at staff, customers and the camera about halal meat eaters worshipping a false God and Satan and practising a “disgusting, vile ideology”.

2

Don’t you realise you’re in Great Britain? In Britain, why do we have halal slaughterhouses? Why are you offering these animal up to Allah, a fake god, Satan. Do any of you have any morals?

Not content with terrorising the workers, she then addresses customers waiting on the shop side.

Look at all these people here buying halal-slaughtered meat. You are in Great Britain. Halal slaughter is barbaric. How can you live with yourselves? Look at you, every single one of you. This is a Christian country and the Bible says no Christian should eat meat offered to a false god.

My grandfather fought for this country and he didn’t do that for you people to turn it into little Pakistan by you people carrying out these barbaric practices for a disgusting, vile ideology.

2

Leader Paul Golding, who appears to be filming, calls the workers a “disgrace”, and another member of the group accuses shoppers of funding terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah with their dinners.

It is, quite frankly, appalling.

As with basically everything Britain First does, a quick fact check is in order:

Halal slaughter isn’t more or less “barbaric” than other methods of killing animals such as kashrut in Judaism, which forbids the stunning of animals before slaughter

The interpretation and practice of halal slaughter varies widely throughout Islam

A huge amount of meat in the UK is halal compliant anyway, so this one slaughterhouse has not been “exposed”

As for the charge of cruelty, the RSPCA estimates that 88 per cent of animals killed for halal meat are stunned first

Last but not least, Fransen might want to reevaluate her claim that her grandfather didn’t fight for “you people to turn [this country] into little Pakistan.”

An estimated 400,000 Muslim soldiers fought for Britain in WWI - most from present-day India and Pakistan.

Hope the site can handle the additional irony here, Im aware levels have been unusually high of late, especially some of Ms Fransen’s quotes:

“Do any of you have any morals?”

Say the utter cretins that dress like paramilitaries, invade unsuspecting Mosques, restaurants and businesses (sometimes driving around in a military looking vehicle to do so - which, they also crashed**). Whilst also repeatedly using images of regiments, injured soldiers and Lee Rigby to push their hateful agenda against the wishes of those involved. Or shamelessly begging for money at every juncture, even whilst admitting that Golding’s Mayoral campaign will be an utter failure.

“My grandfather fought for this country and he didn’t do that for you people to turn it into little Pakistan by you people carrying out these barbaric practices for a disgusting, vile ideology.”

This is just obvious, isn’t it.

And, in what seemed to be a great weekend for moronic right-wing racists running ailing Mayoral campaigns

The blog linked by that Huff Post article is worth a read in full.

Can we bung her in the self-hating racist category?

With Bernie Sanders? :lou_sunglasses:

Just had an email from Sro audiences (where you can free tickets for shows). But this time they’re looking for people to be in their show.

It’s called the great benefits handout and it’s by channel 5. They will give you £26k and you stop claiming benefits. They ask for people who have business ideas. Another voyeuristic look and people on benefits.


#15

you should reply saying you’ll do it and your idea is to make exploitative tv programmes.

There have been people losing their shit over this, the reveal trailer for “Battlefield 1”.

So how do we honour the pointless sacrifice of those soldiers that died a century ago in appalling conditions?

Let’s glamourise the fuck out of it to make cash! Cunts.

Isnt that what every war film ever made has done Pap?


#20

Yeah, have to confess it did make me wince a bit. It is billed as an alternate take on history - i.e. it is deliberately dramatised for effect, but I still feel a bit uneasy with it.
