Lez have a fight

Remember my post about the two lesbians being attacked on the upper deck of a London bus?

So here’s what I think happened. These two women are political activists, steeped in third-wave feminism and high on the fumes of the extremely dangerous narrative that women can go head-to-head with men and come out on top. They were on this bus when they encountered a bunch of feral thugs of the sort who plague British cities but remain untouchable thanks to the efforts of the same lefty do-gooders who encourage open displays of homosexual affection.

I expect these women, being foreign, didn’t sense the danger. Maybe they believed Sadiq Khan’s tweets about London being a welcoming utopia where diversity is celebrated by all? So when these thugs first noticed them instead of getting up and leaving or moving closer to other passengers, they engaged, perhaps with some sassy feminist boilerplate while thinking feral British youths have some sort of code about smacking women around. Big mistake.

Via Julia, here’s a video of the incident:

Which pretty much confirms my original suspicions. Note that it appears it was one of the women who started the physical altercation, something the report is careful to conceal but it explains why they’ve been charged with public order offences and not assault:

At approximately 0230hrs on Thursday, 30 May, two women, both aged in their 20s, boarded the bus in West Hampstead.

As they sat on the top deck, they were approached by a group of males who began to make lewd and homophobic comments and gestures to them.

A fight ensued which left both victims with wounds to their faces after being punched several times by the suspects and a phone and bag were stolen.

If you or I were to punch a feral scumbag on a bus for making lewd gestures, we’d either be nicked for assault or beaten up in return with the police showing no interest whatsoever. But as I’m fond of saying, the term protected classes means just that:

The investigating officer, Detective Constable Darren Barlow, from the Met’s Roads and Transport Command (RTPC), said: “No one should ever be victimised because of their sexuality and I hope that this result brings some form of closure to both victims and they can put this ordeal behind them.

Detective Superintendent Andy Cox, from the Met’s Roads and Transport Command, said: “Any Hate Crime on London’s transport network, or anywhere else in London, will absolutely not be tolerated. The Met’s RTPC officers will always fully investigate crimes that are committed on the bus network and we would urge anyone who has been a victim of crime to contact us.

“The transport network in London is, and remains, extremely safe and occurrences of this nature are few-and-far between.”

Mandy McGregor, Head of Transport Policing and Community Safety at TfL, said: “This sickening incident was utterly unacceptable. Homophobic abuse is a hate crime and won’t be tolerated on our network. All of our customers have the right to travel without fear of verbal or physical abuse.

The police have wheeled out three people in succession to remind us they will not tolerate protected classes being assaulted by violent, teenage thugs as if they were just ordinary members of the public. Nor will the protected classes be punished for throwing the first punch. I wouldn’t mind them protecting only their preferred demographics if they’d let the rest of us drown feral scumbags in the Thames, but if we tried to do that we’d find Plod suddenly on their side. I’ll say this for our ruling classes, they let us ordinary plebs know where we stand.

  1. After years of blaming rising crime on just about anything except the scrotes actually committing it, I find the left’s current obsession with “hate crime” ironic.

    Why is only “hate crime” unacceptable? Surely any crime – on London’s buses and elsewhere – should be unacceptable. Would it have been alright had these women been beaten up for, for example, supporting the “wrong” football team, or being Conservative voters?

  2. “Public order offence” is, roughly translated from the legalese, “acting in a manner which is liable to get your own head kicked in, with intent”.

    It merely acknowledges that someone else struck the first blow, but rightly so after you provoked them into it. A lesser charge for having already received some of the punishment.

  3. Funny how UK police are usually so aggressive in prosecution of anyone who dares take things into their own hands, yet this case is given a 180 degree narrative.

    You could be forgiven for thinking there are different rules for different people.

  4. @Schrodinger’s Dog- it is also telling how the hate crime obsession also inverts the left’s views on the treatment of lawbreakers.

    For years they have claimed that the criminal justice system should be about rehabilitation rather than punishment, and criminals deserve a second chance- unless you commit a ‘hate crime’, in which case you are irredeemable and deserve to have your life ruined.

  5. I still don’t get how these yoof got to suss the girls were lezzers. They don’t present anything like your regular inner-city twenties carpet munchers. No technicolour hair or side crops. No facial piercings. They look like regular totty. I can’t see what would kick off the gestures from the lad which seems to provoke the aggro. There’s a pattern of behaviour one might expect from these kids. Bit of cheeky macho verbals in front of their mates. Maybe some insults slung if they’re ignored. I can only imagine there were verbals going back the other way.
    Trouble is they seem to have cut out the frames which might clarify what was going on. There’s over a minute missing from the time line. What’s there shows the girl in yellow going past the gesturing guy in blue to to land on the one who was sitting two rows back.
    As it stands, if there was a “hate crime” committed it was the assault by the girl in yellow on the guy in the dark jacket. Presumable for the presumption of being heterosexual. You could even make a case the lads were defending themselves & left the scene for their own safety.
    Where does the lezzing come in apart from that seems to be their preference?

  6. I expect these women, being foreign, didn’t sense the danger.

    Do us a favour, Tim. Don’t know about the Yank but the other one was a latina out of S.America. Girls like that are street-smart in a way few Londoners ever are. They come from a place where someone pulling a gun or knife & using it over a minor altercation is normal. They learn or they don’t survive.

    I’d lay money one of them (probably the blonde) mouthed off that they were lesbians. Probably in response to some (hetero)sexual innuendo from the teens.

    Try throwing the first punch in response to verbal provocation when you aren’t a protected species and see how the police treat you then…………..

  9. “I’d lay money one of them (probably the blonde) mouthed off that they were lesbians. Probably in response to some (hetero)sexual innuendo from the teens.”

    That’s my take on it. In fact I wouldn’t be least surprised if the root cause was tension between the two girls. The latina would have done what they do. Come over very feminine & in need of male protection. Played to rather than against macho behaviour. The Yank, with her woke sense of entitlement, wasn’t having any of that & wanted to show off to her pal her challenging male sexism.
    Of course they could have come up against the other sort of latina. The tough little Brasilian street kid I live with. Bit like the Boy Scouts tangling with the SAS. She’s utterly feminine & utterly lethal

  10. “It merely acknowledges that someone else struck the first blow, but rightly so after you provoked them into it. A lesser charge for having already received some of the punishment.”

    A lezzer charge?

    I’ll get my coat…

  11. My understanding is that until the girls sat down at the front of the bus, the ferals were sat right at the back. Upon seeing a target the ferals moved towards the front to demonstrate their mighty masculine warrior prowess, which I believed involved flicking coins at said girls, which led to the escalation.

    But as you say, it may not have been homophobic in intention, and it seems one of the boys is claiming as much, he was just showing off his mighty masculine warrior prowess as your common London feral is want to do. The homophobia angle is a right pain in the arse for the Met, because they were then forced to follow up. Ideally it would be good if the Met wanted to deal with all such feral attacks, but there are far more important hate crimes on twitter to deal with.

    As for the ferals; I’m being prejudiced here, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve never had a real male role model to teach them how civilised men behave, flicking coins at girls on buses is their level of social development.
