The video below is of an attempted debate about British colonialism between historian & broadcaster Rafe Heydel-Mankoo and television personality Narinder Kaur.
While Rafe Heydel-Mankoo reels off basic facts about British colonialism, Narinder Kaur launches into a screaming rant. Kaur drops to the depths of imbecility with the accusation that Heydel-Mankoo ‘sounds quite mad.’
Narinder Kaur is representative of many female commentators – though most are younger than Kaur – whose views are driven solely by emotion, often wild emotion. They have an emotion about a particular issue, and that’s the end of it. Say what you want, it does not matter. Come with the most undisputed facts, it makes no difference. In Australia we have a clone of Kaur – Lidia Thrope. You could not meet a greater crackpot than Thorpe.
There are more than 5,000 comments on this ‘debate’. I have included two below that are representative.
Rafe Heydel-Mankoo has his own channel. I highly recommend it. His fluency and grasp of historical detail is impressive.
1 month agoI have a headache after listening to this woman. $500 hair , $300 nails, $1000 outfit, screaming at everyone on a public forum that she is somehow opressed by the people who gave her everything including the freedom to yell and scream at everyone. Bloody hell…..
2 months agoA woman sitting there in beautiful clothes (well, to my eye anyway), perfectly styled hair, professionally applied makeup and in seemingly perfect health screaming that she’s not lucky. Poor thing.
