Rolling Stone magazine gave the film one star.

Last Christmas is bad. Incredibly, shockingly, monumentally bad. The kind of bad that falls somewhere between finding a lump of coal in your stocking and discovering one painfully lodged in your rectum. The kind of bad that you get when you bring together people of enormous talent and then are forced to watch them flail around, lost and flop-sweat desperate, attempting to make a romantic comedy that is mind-bogglingly short of both elements. The kind of bad where you might literally hear the tolerance messaging — same-sex unions, homelessness, anti-immigrant prejudice, Brexit — being ticked off a checklist were it not drowned out by the sound of everyone patting themselves on the back.

Don't ask us about scissoring

Remember the “homophobic attack” that took place earlier this year on a London bus in which the two women pictured above were beaten up? Well footage of that incident is now public and it shows the blonde American woman (who is probably the dominant one in this relationship) throwing the first set of punches at the couple's teen attackers. This was something that she failed to mention in her initial rhetorical piece for the Guardian:


In the recently updated story, Chris or Christine Hannigan to use her full name describes her throwing of punches to the court with the following words:

"I imagine that I did something to physically confront him."

She also agrees there was a difference between a statement she gave the following month to what she told police at the scene, and said a Guardian article she wrote about the attack was "heavily edited".

It's interesting that she decided to omit the bit about her throwing the first set of punches to make it seem as if the attack was entirely unprovoked.

Interesting article from 2014 making the rounds. I didn't fact check Biden's role in this article, and the article leans conspiratorial. That said, if biden did indeed name the team out of line, that's pretty shitty.

obviously.
This is what privilege looks like. She’s so confident that she won’t be harmed, because she’s never been threatened in her whole life, that she walks into THE MIDDLE of a bunch of men harassing her to hit one. Anyone who’s ever been in a fight, or been intimidated before knows that you don’t go into the middle of multiple people.

if you’re getting harassed on a bus, get off. It’s happened to all of us. I’ve been called a faggot and a pussy on a bus in the middle of the night and I’m not even gay. I just got off. It’s fucking London there’s thousands of buses.

I do think those dudes were out of order and such anti-social behavior should not be tolerated AND more should be done to make people feel protected and safe on public transport.

However you have to laugh and this clown who goes on TV wearing an AntiFa tshirt after she has been battered by a group of teens who were basically annoying them and making fun of them on the bus.

SHE escalated this to violence and she came out worse off. Somehow I don't think she'd be much use against literal fascists looking to impose their authoritarian will on society. Just saying. She got beat up by a bunch of idiot kids.

I mean, I'm not even sure I'd try to beat up some kid who's there on the bus with his 2 mates. So many things could go horribly horribly wrong. Especially in London where apparently a lot of kids are carrying knives.

My first instinct would be to protect my partner and stay safe and probably not escalate to violence unless it became absolutely necessary.
Tell them to shut the fuck up. Give them a bit of verbals back but getting into a straight up fight with them is mad.

Still, nobody should have to put up with that kind of bullshit on public transport. Those dudes were in the wrong.
However, escalating the situation, getting yourself and your partner beat up and THEN going to the media to fucking LIE about what happened isn't exactly right either.

"Fuck, we just got beat up because I stupidly tried to physically fight 3 teen lads who were acting like little cunts on the bus. Buuuut if we strike a pose and put the picture up on the internet then maybe we could lie about what happened and get our 15 minutes of fame. I'll wear my antifa thsirt on TV and everything, It'll be great."

It's still homophobic abuse taking place pretty openly and is a very public setting. That's bad enough and it's more than enough to push any agenda and to make some pretty valid points. No need to build it up even more with a few lies that will inevitably be found out and will end up crashing your credibility and the credibility of anyone who supported you. Fucksakes.

Oh, and the little cunts fucking stole her handbag! There was NO need to dress any of this story up AT ALL.

In any confrontation, no matter who is involved or what the outcome is, I always look to see which participant escalated it from verbal to physical.
That is your catalyst.
I think it's made a little worse when the kids are 15, 16 and 17 and the women are in their late 20s.

Reading up it seems all 3 of them pleaded guilty to using threatening words and behavior but are denying it was anything to do with sexuality.
Two of the three admitted to handling stolen goods (the handbag).

Pretty sure by the way that if a 28 year old dude battered a 15, 16 or 17 year old kid on the bus in London and his reasoning was "the kids were saying stuff to me" then he would be in deep fucking trouble.

Situations like this are always stupid. Lets say she clocks one of those kids with a good solid hit and he falls down and gets seriously injured. What then? "Oh he was saying bad things to me so I beat him up."

The lads were out if order but escalating it to violence was reckless and stupid and media outlets running with the made up story was not a good thing to do either.

Is it homophobic though? Like, I watched lesbian porn when I was a teenager. Being a horny teenager and saying crude things to people openly displaying their sexuality like that doesn't seem hateful, just assholish. I agree with everything else, I just have the feeling that the two women got beat up because they're idiots who started a physical confrontation with a group of men who were obviously better at fighting than they were, not because they're gay.

To be fair I was kind of giving the women the benefit of the doubt on that one.
If I were gay and some horrible little shit on the bus was taking the piss and mentioning sexuality at all then I'd take it as some kind of homophobia.

At the end of the day though it is all just assholish behavior and charging in throwing punches is pretty unacceptable for a grown adult to be doing against feckin schoolboys.

You can tell it's either a fake story or one blown way out of proportion, as the lesbians involved are attractive women. I don't say that as an insult, just that the media wouldn't bother with two "typical looking" roller derby lesbians, and would instead want these two for any story involving a hate crime. The Antifa t-shirt just seals the deal.

It's strange how she thought she could get away with leaving out the bit about her throwing punches first.
Surely she must have known that all London buses are equipped with cameras.

Is it homophobic though?
We are entering an age where criticism of elevated groups is labelled as hate.
It's the usual 'foist a sensational label on something I don't like, then I don't need to deal with it and look virtuous in my dismissal at the same time' garbage that so many of today's -ist and -phobia accusations are used as shields.
Assign the label, make someone else the demon, become the victim, never accept responsibility for your part in anything.
Ask for proof, evidence or substance and they REEE even louder.

Similarly, we are preparing laws about 'hate' without first defining what hate is.

Remember that cop who got a 'pig' labeled coffee?

Someone thought it would be a good idea to hoax this, claim to be his daughter, and post this:




And then go on to post this:




[Still up, btw]

And then gets outed for having 'racist' lost in their past [by 2019 standards]

All hoax.


Bonus points led me to some shite teenage girl posting what look to be thanksgiving photos of her family shaming them for being white, and calling out her cousins for being thots.

Oh, and i read enough posts of people absolutely shit talking their own parents to last me a lifetime.

Surprisingly logical responses from most interviewees. Still amazed that threatening to doxx people and professors calling them nazis is acceptable on campus.

Just because you are a cunt, it doesn't mean you have one...

A perfect mix of mental illness, grifting, trolling, and narcissism ... a perfect mess so complete, and total, that the longer you stare at it the less you know. Gender dysphoria? Extreme men's rights activist? Gender grifter? Cultural jester? Who the fuck knows.

At least whatever it is destroys the narrative of the far left.

Notice the language? Is it legal?

This fucking cunt is a grifter, nothing else. I wouldn't be surprised if this is an act to make money. At night, it takes it's wig off and goes down the boozer with the lads and they laugh about how much money they've made from idiots.

We've all thought about it.
