“’I FLED BRAND,’” a Monday accusation in The Sun screams. “Russell Model stalked me down road demanding intercourse after I met him in bar – I felt like I used to be being hunted, mannequin claims.”
The media is having a prurient subject day piling on to the controversial English comic, actor, author, and social commentator.
“Met cops probe intercourse assault declare towards Russell Model as lady comes ahead to report 2003 Soho assault – as star’s ‘Bipolarisation’ tour is postponed,” the Daily Mail relates. “4 girls accusing Russell Model of sexual assault could also be ‘simply tip of the iceberg’,” the Express chimes in.
“YouTube suspends Russell Model’s revenues from his channel,” The Guardian adds. “The BBC has additionally eliminated a handful of programmes that includes Model from its iPlayer and Sounds streaming service, becoming a member of the likes of Channel 4 and Comedy Central in eradicating archive reveals that includes the comic.”
Now, a minimum of the federal government of the UK has joined the pile-on, with Parliament demanding TikTok and Rumble demonetize Model.
This can be fascinating celeb gossip to some, nevertheless it makes honest the query, “What does this should do with ‘gun rights’?” Whereas the reply is “Nothing straight,” what’s taking place to Model, who’s being proactively canceled, financially punished, and publicly judged regardless of vigorously denying the as-yet unproven costs, is just about the identical factor that occurs to gun house owners accused of harmful behaviors underneath “crimson flag legal guidelines.” Authorities then confiscate their firearms with out formally charging them, a lot much less convicting them, of a disqualifying crime.
As we’ve seen in earlier cases the place the politically motivated “Imagine girls” default mantra has been proven to not reside as much as the mass presumptions of guilt, the harm that may be carried out to the harmless is actual and may profoundly have an effect on all of us. Assume Tawana Brawley and the damaging racial hatred fomented by her lies. Then, suppose what the Supreme Courtroom could be like had the Democrats’ sneak assault accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault labored.
In Model’s case, it’s robust to really feel a lot sympathy. That’s as a result of, along with a previous that features addictions to arduous medication and promiscuous intercourse, the multimillionaire beneficiary of free market decisions is on report attacking capitalism and advocating:
“A socialist egalitarian system primarily based on the large redistribution of wealth, [with] heavy taxation of firms…I feel the very idea of revenue needs to be vastly lowered…I say revenue is a grimy phrase, as a result of wherever there’s a revenue there may be additionally a deficit.”
The best way “woke” firms run by elites are lining as much as promote the cultural Marxists rope, it’s robust to not suppose he might have some extent, however historical past reveals us all techniques have their elites and it’s the lowly bourgeoisie that results in the gulags and the lime pits. Let’s not mistake personal possession with voluntary manufacturing and commerce for financial fascism, which requires a “public/personal partnership” with a corrupt armed enforcement equipment imposing coercive controls to fraud.
That’s not the one cognitive dissonance Model has promulgated. For all that discuss fairness, he has used his disproportionately influential megaphone to disparage the simplest egalitarian power-sharing association ever conceived: The precise of the individuals to maintain and bear arms.
It’s humorous how individuals who can’t – or gained’t – management themselves are so bent on controlling the remainder of us. Possibly it’s a projection factor.
Not solely has Model known as for global “gun control” (evidently blind to all of the longstanding controls and treaties that don’t work and substituting “bananas” for Barack Obama’s “books and vegetables”), however who wants weapons if you’re wealthy sufficient to make use of a squad of private bodyguards/thugs?
“Katy Perry and Russell Model’s Bodyguards Allegedly Assaulting Paparazzi in India,” AceShowBiz reported a number of years again. Per the report, the then-couple’s private goon squad left photographers stranded in a jungle safari tiger park by taking their automobile keys, smashing a digicam, smashing one’s glasses, and beating them up, leaving one with a lower arm and one other with “a bleeding wound on his head.”
Privileged, protected celebrities: Is it any marvel we love them so? That stated, as straightforward as it could be to not give a rattling about what occurs to Russell Model, to let the ludicrously tyrannical “Sentence first, verdict afterward” mob mentality change into the social default impacts us all in a Martin Niemöller kind of way.
And in Model’s case, the general public furor being incited could also be extra about leftist insurance policies he opposes, like Covid “denialism” now being painted as a “right-wing signaling trope.” He’s left the reservation. It’s too harmful to let a beforehand favored mass influencer do this.
Simply as Firearms Policy Coalition is standing up for the reprehensible Hunter Biden to defend a higher precept, we don’t have to offer a rattling about Russell Model as an individual. However we stand by silently whereas anybody is deemed responsible with out due course of at our peril.
