Laurie Penny Â isÂ a 25 year old punk who thinks she knows it all. Â The race card is her SOP. Sort of Garofalo ‘light’.
In a perfect world, she would be dropped into the foot hills of Punjab. Â There she could learn what a woman’s role is, Â from a bunch of Â Talibandits who are only ‘acting within the norms of their culture’.
People like Laurie Penny should be laughed off the stage. There have always been crackpots like her, but thanks to the media circus, Â they’re now given Â credibility because it spooks people and stirs up the kind of controversy that’s useful to revolutionary mudsharks, Â aka “progressives.”
Meanwhile, note that all the published comments support Mr. Starkey’s views.
It’s Â a totalitarian Leftist Affair for Â indoctrinated drones.

Historian David Starkey branded a ‘racist’ and a ‘bigot’ after saying Rochdale sex gang had values ‘entrenched in foothills of the Punjab’
- Made controversial comments when he was speaking at the Festival of Education at Wellington college
- Added that the gang needed to be ‘inculcated in the British ways of doing things’
- Comments incensed panel member Laurie Penny
Historian David Starkey provoked a race row yesterday after claiming theÂ Â Rochdale child exploitation ring who groomed white girls for sexÂ had values ‘that were ‘entrenched in foothills of the Punjab’.
During a public debate he saidÂ theÂ gang, who were jailed last month for targeting vulnerable teenage girls,Â needed to be ‘inculcated in the British ways of doing things.’
But he was brandedÂ a ‘racist’ and a ‘bigot’ byÂ journalist Laurie Penny, who attended thepanel event at Wellington College in Berkshire. (She has a blog for likeminded twits, ‘penny red’– don’t bother, you’re wasting your time!)
Miss Penny, 25, who writes for the New Statesman, later joined him on a panel discussing Britishness and accused Mr Starkey of ‘playing xenophobia and national prejudice for laughs.’

As she spoke, the audience shouted ‘keep going, keep going’ as she moved on to speaking about about his tax status.
Once she had sat down, the historian walked over to her, jabbed his finger in the columnist’s face and declaredÂ ‘I will not be lectured to by a jumped-up public school girl like you.’ Â (Daily Mail)
Last month, days after the men were convicted, Mr Starkey declaredÂ that the Rochdale sex gang were ‘acting within their cultural norm’.
He has also made several comments in the past which have courted controversy.
After the riots last summer on Newsnight he blamed ‘black culture’ for the trouble and claimed that parts of Enoch Powell’s ‘rivers of blood’ speech had been right.
The British historian’s comments led to around 700 complaints to the BBC, while Labour leader Ed Miliband branded the remarks ‘disgusting and outrageous’.
The interview was later cleared by the TV watchdog.
Miss Penny last made headlines two months ago when she was saved from oncoming traffic by Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling and tweeted about it on her Twitter page.Â
In the UK “public school” means “private school.” In the article Starkey addresses the reporter as a public school girl–that’s why you should know what it means.
