Oh dear! Twitter personality Natalie McGarry caught out yet again

AN ALERT reader drew our attention to the tweet below recently. So this blog will be short and quick. Rebutting anything Scotland’s favourite wee lassie and “Twitter personality” has to say, after all, is like shooting big fish in a teeny wee barrel with a huge shotgun: so easy it’s embarrassing.  AhDinnaeKen explains:

Oh dear! "Personally abusive." If holding would be politicians to some kind of account is "abusive" - guilty as charged.

Oh dear! “Personally abusive.” If holding would be politicians and hypocrites to some kind of account is “abusive” – guilty as charged.

By Longshanker aka @ergasiophobe

IT’S FAIR to deduce from the above Tweet that oor wee Natalie has been receiving AhDinnaeKen related links or mentions or retweets from other Tweeters.

We*’ll allow Natalie her wee insult that AhDinnaeKen is a “disgusting” blog.

Nationalists cannae take being held to account by anyone, nevermind the politically disenfranchised, so its obviously “disgusting” – in Natalie’s wee Nationalist-o-centric world at least.

What we will call Natalie out on, however, is the evidenceless “misogynist” smear. In terms of that debate, it seems she’s more ready to be a politician than the population of Cowdenbeath gave her credit for. Or not – as the case turns out to be:

Exhibit A:
McGarry - Dear
As you can see, using the patronising cum condescending word “dear” is enough, in Natalie’s Chomsky-ite lite world, to earn you the label “misogynist”.

Use of the condescending phrase “calm down dear” got David Cameron into hot water some time ago and Natalie appears to have jumped on to that bandwagon.

Exhibit B:

Ooer. That's awkward. Probably best deleted and forgotten about.

Ooer. That’s awkward. Probably best deleted and forgotten about.

The nice little chap above is Natalie’s bidey-in ‘partner’ and Conservative cooncillor, David Meikle.

Surprisingly, and we’re sure it’s entirely coincidental, that Tweet appears to have been deleted. It’s disappeared; ceased to exist; no longer to be seen, anywhere on the Twittersphere. There’s a pattern for that kind of phenomenon regarding Tweets surrounding Ms McGarry which highlight inconvenient truths.

Unsurprisingly, no “misogynist”  label for Cooncillor Meikle.

Funny that!

Oor message to wee Natalie is this: If you’re going to smear with a sticky ‘one size fits all’ label, at least provide some evidence and be consistent.

Otherwise, you’re left open to the same type of label yourself. And you end up looking like a condescending misandrist.

Weel din Nippy Sark – yer tea’s oot!

Gosh! Commenting on someone because of their appearance. Sounds a bit misandrist to me. #ironic #laugh

Gosh! Commenting on a male of the species because of their appearance. Sounds a tad misandrist to me. #ironic #laugh

    Well done of a great expose of Natalie McGarry.

    THE FOLLOWING FEW PARAGRAPHS HAVE BEEN REDACTED

    In the end they didn’t have the last laugh, they lost, and I came 7th out of 14 standing..

    Maybe in any future posts on her, you can make use of the facts I related in the interests of fairness to paint McGarry as she actually is and not what she makes out to be.

    Yours sincerely

      Please accept my apologies. But I’m not publishing the rest of your comment on this blog.

      I don’t doubt for a minute that they are true, but too many people are named and some of the subject matter appears to be open to court interpretation.

      You can libel/defame someone in this country even if what you are saying is true.

      I hope you understand.

      Let me know how you get on in the future with the court case you mentioned.

      Sincerely

      Longshanker

      NB: I haven’t deleted your comment. I’ve saved it for future reference. Hopefully you’re right again. Regards. 🙂

  2. Dear Longshanker

    I have no problem with your edit, it’s your website.

    If I had concerns, I would do the same.

    And you can be sure, that I am right again.

    I am waiting for a date to go to Court.

    You can google some of the things I mentioned because they are available third party re the stalker and it is also mentioned on my blog plus there is press coverage to a named individual in my piece.

    Yours sincerely
