Of course he is, Heathy.
Despite the overwhelming evidence of bias about the press and Markle, there will always be some people who refuse to believe it, no matter how convincing.
That’s because about ten per cent of the population is stupid, and dislike facts which contradict how they want to see and understand the world. This can happen with anything, and does, e.g. with global warming.
The opposite is true, too. No matter how unbelievable, ridiculous, far-fetched, or evidence-free something is, there will always be about ten per cent who believe it. For example, rumours such as Michael Gove being attacked by hungry beavers at London Zoo, Priti Patel deporting Sandy Toksvig, Trump being lined up as the next Dr Who, or Johnson going to Mars, all get started on social media and they’re immediately shared thro’ re-tweets by the credulous. And next thing, they’re trending!
You could find Johnson saying he wants to close the steelworks, forcibly sterilise the people of north Lincs., and declare war on the Chinese, and guess what – you’d still get people like Bucksiron saying it was a great idea, and how the Tory party, more than any other, deserve our support!
There’s a short, amusing video of Ricky Gervais discussing this oddest of odd phenomena.
So, despite all the dreadful media treatment of Markle, it’s no surprise BI and a handful of others are still reluctant to accept the truth – that the right-wing press hate her because their mindset is racist, sexist, and class-ridden, just like many of their readers. They hate her because, having been admitted to British royalty as a black woman, she confidently refuses to be ground down, or to put up and shut up, about what she sees as unfair or wrong. And to his credit, her husband stands firmly by her, fired by the brightly-burning memory of how the very same press hounded his mother to the grave.
Really BI, you claim you aren’t racist and that you defend women’s rights, and even expect socialized protection for those with mental health issues. And yet, you apparently support this vicious and nasty press. I don’t know how you sleep or live with yourself. It must be most depressing.
