Moonbat vs. Moonbat: Piers Morgan vs. George Monbiot

Even Piers Morgan is almost endurable in comparison with the Guardian’s George Monbiot, who has been on a jihad to abolish livestock farming. In his abject lunacy, Monbiot evidently believes it to have a deleterious effect on the weather. Yet he came on Morgan’s Good Morning Britain wearing a watchband and shoes made of leather.

Morgan was aghast:

“You are telling us all to give up meat, you want to kill these animals for your watches and your shoes… shameless hypocrisy, am I wrong?”

For once he was not, as Monbiot confirmed by responding,

“I’m not being 100 per cent purists about this but I am trying to persuade people to change their habits in quite a radical way.”

He offered the lame excuse that watchbands last longer than hamburgers. He might as well have answered with the liberal motto, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

The acrimony continued afterward, as they took their debate onto Twitter:

Morgan tweeted: “Poor George, came on to argue we should all be vegans – wearing a leather watch and shoes.”

Monbiot replied: “Poor Piers, can’t see the difference between a watch strap that lasts two years and a burger that lasts, to judge by his girth, two minutes.”

And the Good Morning Britain host hit back with: “Erm, don’t they both involve the slaughter of cows? ps Fat-shaming me is not going to go down very well with your Guardian mates, George.”

Monbiot is not only a wearer of the skin of oppressed and murdered cows, he is also a fat-shamer. Only by barking ever more radical moonbattery will he be able to reclaim his credibility.

    I’m terrible with French, vowels that are consonants etc. Monbiot, I’m thinking it should pretty well translate to Moonbat. Am I wrong?

  2. Ol' Uncle Lar says:

    Seems right to me.

  3. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    Morgan is reasonably sane on some issues. Previously, I had just known him through his civilian disarmament screeds, but I was shocked to find that he isn’t a total barking moonbat.

  4. Spiny Norman says:

    Contrary to long-standing internet rumor, the inventor of “moonbat”, Perry DeHavilland (of Samizdata) insists he wasn’t thinking of Monbiot when he coined the term “barking moonbat”. It’s just a happy coincidence.
