Good on you, Maajid.

Good on him.
A quick scan of the replies has drawn my attention to this delightful tweet from Fallon Fox.

Yes, I saw that from Fallon Fox too, @ChurchOfWokeApostate.
Such kindness really warms the heart.

He tweeted directly in support of JK Rowling too - it was on the famous supporters thread. I love the other tweets in the thread that he has already given a lot of thought to this and doesn't need to be 'educated' and that he is not afraid of pile ons.

Re the Fallon Fox tweet, what would we say if we saw a tweet from Tyson Fury saying he loved punching opponents who made negative comments about the traveller community? Wouldn't he be up before the British Board of Boxing Control?

How refreshing to see a man reference the S word...

That Fallon Fox tweet actually appeared in the comments under a JK Rowling tweet where she was complimenting a child's drawing.

Way to peak parents and the general public.

Oh thank goodness!

Was sooooo disappointed in James O'Brian revealing himself a Wokie Dude Bro' last year.

Between Maajid, Nick and Steve, can keep listening to LBC.

Yes, Lama

It’s very telling that a man saying the same thing as a woman gets such a different response.

The anime avatar/MRA/TRA/Incel crowds get off on being violent (vocally and in person) to women.

Maajid is the 'wrong' type of target.

In a sense it seems, if a woman was getting attacked on the street by a man, Maajid would now be the type of decent man who would push them back and shout "Go ahead then big man. Hit me instead. Go on big man. Piece o'shit attacking women."

I think he is a hero.

Did you read the follow up tweets? [paraphrasing] I am not scared of you, I have had jihadists after me, do not make the mistake that I didn’t come prepared to debate this, if you insult me I will block you and never think of you again.

CoffeeTeaChocolate Wed 17-Jun-20 18:07:36

I think Purple is right, he is not the target they would go for. a) he is not a woman, b) he is very unlikely to be intimidated.

PurpleHoodie Wed 17-Jun-20 18:09:34

Coffee

Indeed he did.

I think he is a hero.

He's comes across as an intelligent thinking man. A critical thinker on many issues.

vivariumvivariumsvivaria Wed 17-Jun-20 18:19:27

He's got "don't let the bastards get you down" on his twitter bio.

I think I love him.

EdgeOfACoin Wed 17-Jun-20 18:29:21

I've always been impressed by him. He seems to prepare for his show more than any other LBC broadcasters.

He seems to think deeply about the issues he discusses and defends his view well.

RigaBalsam Wed 17-Jun-20 18:38:37

He has redeemed himself with this for me. He has come across as a clueless bully on a lot of the corona issues but brill on the BLM recently.

I hate the way he demands answers without letting people get their point across.

Cuntysnark Wed 17-Jun-20 18:49:12

I sent him a card at the weekend. I didn’t hold back. He’s utterly lovely!

TBHno Wed 17-Jun-20 18:51:13

He's excellent on women's issues. He was very good at calling out the grooming gangs, if I remember correctly?

buckeejit Wed 17-Jun-20 18:51:42

Brilliant.fallon Fox though-wtf?!

OnlyFoolsnMothers Wed 17-Jun-20 18:58:15

Well done Majid
As for James OB- for a man always harping on about facts not feelings in debate he doesn’t seem to apply that to this such argument.

PurpleHoodie Wed 17-Jun-20 21:55:10

Such a shame Only.

He should be ashamed.

picklemewalnuts Wed 17-Jun-20 22:06:23

Great thread! Great guy. Some very honest statements there.

Lottapianos Wed 17-Jun-20 22:08:57

'As for James OB- for a man always harping on about facts not feelings in debate he doesn’t seem to apply that to this such argument'

Indeed. And I've heard him boasting about what a massive feminist he is too. Excuse me while I heave
