When social media comes back to haunt you

Remember the fight over a flippant comment from Sean Plunket over Harvey Weinstein? It cost Sean Plunket his job…for one little tweet.

One of the people who piled into that was Golriz Ghahraman.

This is what she said in reply to Sean Plunket:

What has she been doing all week?

That’s right explaining to us how we have to understand the human in people, and that is why she defended people charged with inciting genocide and genocide.

Her own personal views when it comes to sympathising, or even empathising in cases of sexual assault is that sympathising with offenders is deeply wrong.

Yet somehow when it came to Hutu war criminals and genocidaires she wants to sympathise with them, and empathise and understand.

If she was at least consistent, then that would be deeply wrong…wouldn’t it?

And now you see the problem with virtue-signalling wombles who choose sides on each issue without being consistent in their approach.

So, there was Golriz Ghahraman sowing a bit of humanity and sympathy for her client, the now convicted inciter of genocide. How sweet…and deeply wrong.

Perhaps she might like to say the same thing about genocide, inciting genocide and war crimes…rather than just for sexual assault.

Social media can be a real bitch, especially when you are inconsistent in your virtue-signalling.

If one little tweet cost Sean Plunket his job, then surely what has been revealed this week should cost Golriz Ghahraman hers?
