It is entirely understandable to feel sorry for those who have been duped.
However, it isn’t always that easy to convince people that they have been taken in, especially when they are The People.
I am now convinced that those who are steeped in a subculture of anti-intellectualism and Herrenvolk exceptionalism are particularly vulnerable to being played.
Of course, the Fourth Estate should be an important safeguard in this respect.
Sadly, on Planet Fitba the Stenography Corps will regurgitate anything that is an Ibrox good news story.
This is from June last year.
This site is fully searchable and you will find an alternative analysis to the “King defeats Ashley” narrative.
I have stated here repeatedly that it often takes time to be vindicated.
My primary concern is to protect sources.
Many people take risks to give me sensitive information and it must be handled with care.
However, let’s be clear about something on this story.
In June 2017 I KNEW that Ashley had scored a major victory over King and the Sevco High Command.
However, I could only allude to aspects of the story at the time
Then when a Learned source provided me with the court documents I was able to set the record straight.
When my piece was circulated in Twitter I’m told that The People reacted badly.
The poor dears.
I’m afraid that this is the inevitable fate of an evidence resistant subculture.
If that was not an entirely accurate sociological description of the Ibrox klan then the Sevco High Command would not have been able to control the message so completely.
Since the Off Licence Putsch of March 2015, it has been one of the few areas where the Blue Room chaps have demonstrated competence.
However, their failure to have an adequate response to the Ashley injunction was the reason for this deflection exercise yesterday.
Of course, “Dublin-based” is a dog whistle that never fails to elicit a barking response from the Ibrox customer base.
What The People find most objectionable about your humble correspondent is that I deploy something that they try to avoid-the truth.
Carl Jung said it much better than I ever could:
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
That, dear reader, is the private hell of each and every one of the Ibrox customer base who thinks that they are still watching the original Rangers in 2018.
Until they face up to what really happened in the summer of 2012 then they will be tragically easy to fool.
That is something that Sevco’s found father found every profitable indeed.
Rather like a dodgy medium Charles of Normandy told The People that they could still connect to their beloved club.
Sevco is a cruel hoax and I will not be party to the con.
Rangers died in 2012 and the tribute act is a shambles.
At some point, some of The People will have to realise that.
Until then I will continue to skewer the klan with the truth.
Have a great day.
