Yesterday evening that good friend of the violent and racist far-right, Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, spoke at University of the West of England Law Society. During the meeting one of his supporters punched a woman in an unprovoked attack. A video clip that shows the Rees-Mogg supporter attacking a woman is here: Rees-Mogg supporter’s punch.
Media coverage and accounts by fellow Tory MPs of the event have purposefully chosen to avoid mentioning that one of Rees-Mogg’s supporters attacked a woman. Their focus has been on the people protesting (peacefully) against far-right rabble-rouser and enabler of wealth terrorism Rees-Mogg.
The president of the University of the West of England Law Society Callum Tucker has invested a lot of time since Rees-Mogg’s appearance in conversing with right-wing professional trolls (Staines, Oakenshott, etc.) to try to paint an inaccurate account of the incident while simultaneously ignoring the assault. Tucker will know the identity of the puncher. After the assault Tucker had a smiling photo taken with Rees-Mogg.
Jacob Rees-Mogg is a charlatan, a professional liar and a financial gangster. His fanbase is full of racist thugs. Sadly, it is not surprising that one such thug attacked a woman on behalf of Rees-Mogg and it is not surprising that fellow Tories and RW media have ignored the assault.
