Owen Jones and the folly of criticism

Criticism often tells you more about the critic than the criticised.

Owen Jones is a classic bigot:

Owen Jones

big·ot [big-uht]


a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.
- He's known for blocking people on an industrial scale on Twitter.

Anyone who has disagreed with him online will know this because if you're not "famous" he'll block you. There's nothing wrong with that of course, free speech does not entitle people to speak to those who aren't interested.

- He thinks the following sentence makes sense: "Here is a man who should be damned by all tolerant people."

Google the word "tolerant" and explain how and why someone who has that characteristic would "damn" others? They may disagree with people but it's a paradox to suggest they will not tolerate them.

In my opinion only a bigot can make sense of such logic.
