Bullies – We All Have Feelings, Hopes & Aspirations – Not Just You


We live in 2012 in an era of instant celebrity, where the mediocre or just plain lucky, are elevated from obscurity to some kind of celebrity. Reality TV is to blame as are so called “talent” shows like X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. However, this is not going to be a tirade against the vacuousness of crap TV, I’m talking about something that I consider to be more insidious. Where these would be stars are following “dreams,” there are others that seek to be “big fish in small pools.”

These aspirant big fish can be found in many walks of life. They can be the “know all” in the pub. The loud one in a night club. A playground bully. A dirty footballer .A cheat at cards. An internet bully – king of the chatroom.All of these people have one thing in common. A lack of care and consideration for others. Whilst it’s true that these types have strong personalities, and usually strong opinions, they use their weight to humiliate, cajole and shame people into being their friends or to ostracize the ones who fail to find common ground with them.

I think that for all of their outward show of strength that these people are essentially spineless and have very little of any true value in their lives. If they had any sense of balance in their lives then they wouldn’t find it necessary to belittle and insult and cheat their peers. These people are usually liars and of low intellect, but with a certain native and naked cunning. Most of what they do isn’t calculated, it’s instinctive so it clearly illustrates that they are less evolved than the rest of us.

Typically, in this the 21st century, they live within yards of where they were born because they feel safer in never stepping out of the comfortable cocoon they have wrapped themselves in. Typically they read The Sun. Vote Labour without knowing why. Go by nick names that pathetically try to re enforce their masculinity. Perhaps more tellingly they have no sense of humour. They think they have – but all their laughs are misogynistic or homophobic or xenophobic or a trite form of a joke with a filthy sexual punchline.

Despite any formal qualifications that these people have or responsible jobs, they really are as thick as pig shit. Ever met a copper? Case in point.

And what am I?

I am a believer in the essential goodness of mankind, I am also one who is beginning to have my faith shattered by what I observe around me. I watched a documentary about the odious Nick Griffin of the BNP who was somewhat surprisingly educated at Cambridge University. His views on Islam were inflammatory, as they are on race. In short he is a right bastard. A dangerous one at that as he preys on the ignorance and prejudice of the idiots in the UK. Has Griffin never read Shakespeare?

Perhaps the following should be learned across this wide world of ours,

“Hath not a ***** eyes?
Hath not a ***** hands, organs,dimensions, senses, affections, passions;
fed with the same food,
hurt with the same weapons,
subject to the same diseases,
heal’d by the same means,
warm’d and cool’d by the same winter and summer as a ^^^^^ is?
If you prick us, do we not bleed?
If you tickle us, do we not laugh?
If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that.
If a ***** wrong a *****, what is his humility?
Revenge.
If a ^^^^^ wrong a *****, what should his sufferance be by ^^^^^ example?
Why, revenge.
The villainy you teach me,
I will execute,
and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.”

*****   = Them
^^^^^    =  You

Apologies to “The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.”

Yes, bullies. We all have feelings, hopes and aspirations – not just you. Perhaps we should all pick up our Holy books and live our lives by what is contained therein. You don’t need to believe in order to adopt a “Christian,” “Islamist,” “Buddhist” etc etc etc. outlook on life. But if we all followed one or other of the religious doctrines then perhaps the world would be a better place.

As long as there were no more “Holy Wars,” then everything would be tickety-boo – or human or animal sacrifices. (You know what I mean – hippy drippy kinda stuff…..)

Ciao For Now Bullies And Believers Alike,

May Your God Go With You,

  1. Nice one Doc ?:^)

  2. Nice Shakespeare reference 😀

    Interesting post, as always. Nick Griffin has some cringingly predjudiced views, but I did enjoy watching him squirm slightly on telly the other night. Amazed he’s still about, thought he might have faded into obscurity by now.

    • Becky,

      I do hide my intelligence most of the time.

      It’s not easy being an intellectual, ask Adrian Mole.

      Den

  3. blimey, doc – you need to lighten up a bit – a creative writing class wouldnt be a bad idea either!

    • You’re probably right, I do need to lighten up. I am right royally pissed off about the Wolves tho’.
