Fucking Slappers!

Nothing like some light Thursday Night viewing….

Tonight : Mugging for Kicks ITV, 10pm

First off this one was misleadingly titled, as it wasn’t about mugging but rather “Happy Slapping” – the new youth craze which involves slapping random persons in public and filming the assaults on mobile phones. I remember a workmate showing me the spectacle on his phone and I must admit to laughing at the audacity of these guys. What I had seen on the phone was kiddie play compared to what they covered in last night’s programme – these fucking bell-ends were going round slapping people off their bikes, knocking people unconscious, bursting people’s eardrums and – in one particularly fucked-up instance – setting fire to blokes in the street!

Of course there were links made to shows like Jackass and Dirty Sanchez, with only a tenuous attempt to differentiate between consensual violence and the more conventional variant – it’s as if the programme- makers took one look at the retardation binding the shows with the Happy Slappers and yelled “AHA!”. To their credit though, they did stress the “don’t try this at home” message emphasised by the makers of such shows.

One of the culprits was boasting about how hilarious this all was, as if they were playing nowt but a harmless game of football or Knockdown Ginger. Interestingly when they interviewed this twat and an accomplice, his accomplice (a white dude, judging from the blur) had his face obscured whilst he – a black guy – was fully exposed to millions of viewers. Was such selective anonymity mere sloppiness, or part of a media attempt to conflate this crimewave with a particular ethnic group, thus precipitating our culture of fear? (Mikey Moore way well be a suspect man with a questionable agenda, but he hit that pretty much on the head in Bowling for Columbine.) Admittedly black kids make up a sizeable amount of the Happy Slapper movement, but they’re hardly the sole progenitors – I wonder what the programme makers were trying to accomplish with that segment.

At the same time, a white youth was also interviewed in another part of the show with full facial exposure, so it could have been a directorial oversight – who knows?

Watching this programme I couldn’t help but contemplate a)how similar this seemed to the activities of the Droogs in A Clockwork Orange and b)why the fuck we have stupid gun control laws in this country….

I then changed the channel for my (semi-)regular viewing of…..

Question Time BBC1, 10:35pm

This had some link to the previous programme as one of the topics up for discussion was the decision of some shopping centres to ban the wearing of youth apparel, such as hoodies and baseball caps etc. on their premises. As silly a movie as I think this is (bad for business, y’see) it’s perfectly acceptable for them to set their own standards on the matter. However, the Labour panellist (Harriet Harman) thought it’d be a spliffing idea for the government to instigate a similar clampdown to stop the general populace feeling “insecure” – haha!

Whilst I harbour my fair share of contempt for chavs and rude boys/gyals in general, the implications of her suggestion were rather disturbing ….

…. then again, that’s what happens when the populace give Labour cunts power over their lives (again)!

In light of such borderline-totalitarian talk of “taking measures”, thank fuck for Tory Boy* Boris Johnson. He raised my laughter with his talk of “feral youths” and the like – and my applause when he stressed the difference between private and governmental regulation of dress codes. Naturally Labour Girl did a back-pedal and claimed she wasn’t trying to suggest a state mandate on the dress code of the citizenry – hyeah right! With talks of the ID card scheme being reactivated, one wouldn’t put anything past these totalitarian twats!

All in all an evening of light entertainment, no?

    * shrug * Or he may have given his permission to appear on camera without any masking of his identity. Not the wisest move, given his activities, but it’s possible.
    why the fuck we have stupid gun control laws in this country…
    No doubt. I suspect this won’t become a trend in the U.S., unless these punks are stupid enough not to contemplate their own shooting deaths.

      That did briefly cross my mind – I’d have preferred for both the fuckers to be exposed to the world, regardless of their wishes….

      No shit. If anyone even tried to pull this shit in the US, cops would just think it was open season on killing.
      Not that the gene pool wouldn’t benefit from a little Darwinistic trimming.

  2. The people with their faces blured wanted their faces blured, it wasn’t a choice on the part of the editors.
    Wow that is a fucked up trend they have in jolly old.
    Public dress codes ? God I thought it was bad here.

      “The people with their faces blured wanted their faces blured, it wasn’t a choice on the part of the editors.”
      Yeah, that may’ve been, though I’d have preferred for them both to be named and shamed for the sake of congruence…
      Well – the public mandate on youth clothing is just a thinly hinted-at suggestion rather than a serious proposal (at least at this stage in the game…we’ll see…

    UK gun control is probably in place to prevent an armed uprising against the monarchy.

    • MRDA says:

      It’s more to do with the attempts of irate and ignorant mothers calling for bans and everyone else to feel their pain in light of the actions of one crazy dickhead who went on a child-killing spree…
      I swear, some women’s rational faculties diminish with childbirth, judging by all these bloody “Mothers Against ” groups….
      As for the monarchy, it’s merely a prop these days – it’s our overreaching government running the show now…
      BTW, who is the fellow in your icon and what anime is he from? You’re the second person on my Friend’s List who has him as an avatar.

      • jsangspar says:

        It’s GAI-SENSEI from Naruto; he and his student, Rock Lee, are basically the best characters ever and are over-dramatic Bruce Lee clones with giant eyebrows. I admit to enjoying Naruto with more than a little shame.

        • bastardzero says:

          Hm, I was thinking “Jackie Chan” looking at your av, but yeah, the hair and facial expression are very Bruce Lee. Chinese guys always point at themselves with the thumb to the nose. They also point at other people with their knuckles facing the floor sometimes. Chinese people point way cooler than Americans.

        • MRDA says:

          Ah – actually, I think Rock’s the chara has on his icon.
          I must check out this Naruto eventually…

    Setting people on fire? Ooookay.

  5. bastardzero says:

    Oh my god! And here I was assuming that Europe had more intelligent television than North America! That’s sadistic, immoral and totally misses the point of Jackass. Jackass is a bunch of people embarassing and hurting themselves with random passers-by functioning only as astounded, amused or slightly scared witnesses, they never harm innocent bystanders. And yeah, this “beat the crap out of poor bastards on the street” business is basically A Clockwork Orange without the rape.

    • MRDA says:

      I should’ve pointed out the programme I watched was a news doco expose into this fucked-up trend, rather than any (intentional) promotion for such activities.

      • bastardzero says:

        Oh! Hahaha! Those guys are still a bunch of pricks but at least they’re not meeting with mainstream media approval. I don’t think you can blame the media for social problems, but what the media approves of is a good guage of what the people approve of. Thank god Europeans aren’t that amoral yet (‘cept maybe German pornography).

    the UK just lost its right to look down on american pop culture as shallow and retarded.

    This is why conceal and carry laws are so vital. Just let one of these little motherfuckers get his head blasted off and have that sent to their buddies’ mobiles. Hahaha.
