BROKEN : LCD Views can report the scoop today that Gammon First leaders have glued themselves to a butcher’s shop to protest a social media ban.
”It’s not on,” one salty mouthpiece hollered, “well I am, on the butcher’s shop window, but the silencing of my lie strewn hate and bigotry will not stand. And if the cramps in my legs get any worse, neither will I.”
While the ban on the groups and individuals has been welcomed by many, concerned that social media platforms have done little thus far to curb the propaganda that is fuelling a social climate similar to the 1930’s, some have confessed concern as to the unintended consequences of the ban.
”I’ll have to share a lot more cat memes,” one avid far right page follower sighed, “and I’m not sure there’s enough new ones to go around.”
There is also concern that people may start viewing others with less suspicion.
”I might have to try taking to people who look different to myself,” another worried, “without the constant reinforcement of stereotypes and misrepresentation of ‘others’ I could accidentally discover that people are just people. Years of my life may have been wasted. It’s not on.”
The effectiveness of the butcher’s shop protest has also been called into question. It appears to have had nowhere near the success of the climate change ones.
”People are just asking the butcher how much for a pound of the gammon in the window?” a disgruntled hatemonger moaned, “and my sunburn looks like turning into cracking. Someone rub some more salt in!”
Another unintended consequence maybe the severance of lucrative funding streams made possible by the social media platforms.
”I might have to get a real job?” little Tommy fumed, “and that is really not on!”
