Sometimes you do have wonder at the mentality of some people

This is Ben Uffindel’s idea of a joke…to glorify the murderous Islamic terror group ISIL (ISIS) by changing his logo at The Civilian.

Sometimes satire just falls flat.


I don’t know how he thinks that is a good idea. 

Sure I know he has freedom of speech, but I just bet his leftie mates won’t be impressed especially since the group he appears to be using for shits and giggles has a habit of chucking poofs off tall buildings.


and stones women;


Yep, these aren’t really the sorts of guys that you really want to show solidarity with even if you are just taking the piss.

Satire is funny, using ISIL (ISIS) to make some sort of point no one is getting is just sick.

Ben Uffindel is just a sad, immature little dork.

New Zealand’s answer to The Onion as claimed by idiot journalists?

I don’t think so.

    I have to agree. I used to look the The Civilian and in the past he has been very funny but since the election campaign started he has been anything but and I have no time for the blog equivilent of fart jokes anymore.

    It would be less offensive to have used a swastika – both are Totalitarian ideologies, but at least Nazi’s recognise women as equal and allow basic freedoms around marriage, diet, and clothing.

      Forgive me for being ignorant, but I thought Nazism disallowed homosexuality, which means that “Freedom to marry whom one loves” and “Sexual freedom” should have a big fat NO for the Nazi column.

        Hi Evo, you are 100% correct. Thanks for pointing out this glaring error. Homosexuals were ruthlessly persecuted in Nazi Germany. Although I’m not the author of this graphic, I have amended my copy and edited my post.

        • EvoDriver

          I appreciated that it’s not your graphic! Thanks for the update!

    Very, very stupid.

  • Genevieve

    How old is this guy? I’m guessing about 12 ?

  • Cadwallader

    I have been hoping for a long time somebody would actually call this sad little reptile out. He is about as amusing as ebola and almost as pernicious. Underneath his “humour” I wager he is a dense leftie.

  • Eiselmann

    I wonder how many Yazadi would think Ben is hilarious?

    • Ruahine

      Especially Yhazadi Teenage Girls.

    I enjoy some of his articles from time to time, but I have to admit when I saw the logo yesterday, it pretty much missed the mark for me.

  • Justsayn

    You should read the article that went with the logo change. It is his idea of a joke, and it is a very funny one! Here is a link to it…

  • Kiwikea

    He’s the Martin Guptill of satire. One in twenty attempts are successful.

  • Mountainmadness

    I think that you have taken this out of context. if you read the full article he really is taking the piss out of serious outlets like The Herald that are really bowing down to the terrorists as you have pointed out in previous articles.
    He has a different way of presenting things and I think it has its place.

  • kehua

    I rest my case , I recognised his immaturity and commented so on his second post on WOBH. A hero in his own mind, pathetic little person.

  • Matt Pearce

    I thought it was quite smart, He’s taking a jab at the media who are too scared to speak out against Isis and Islamic extremists. His article said that they are scared for their lives and don’t want to be killed so they will give into any demands. That’s satirical, it pokes fun at the MSM who do give into pressure but don’t admit it

  • Meemee

    “Green Taliban”. Hypocrite?

  • Dr Wang

    Ben Uffindel has never had the comedic touch with any material of his I’ve seen. He’s just another lightweight try-hard, he can’t manage “satire” either.
