Owen Jones got very upset the other night on sky news as those he was in conversation with refused to state in agreement with him that the Orlando massacre was an anti-Gay hate crime. It was an anti-Gay hate crime, but it was also something wider than that reflecting internalised colonial supremacism, and often direct collusion from usa and uk authorities in this supremacist terrorism. However, Jones has in the recent past been a cheerleader for exactly such supremacist forces.
Owen Jones supported hyper homophobic raping lynching mutilating supremacist death squads in Libya and Syria, so according to him they are heroes when they are massacring us but homophobic hate crime murderers when they killing westerners?!
