They are well-meaning, so they (for instance) get sucked by Britain First (no, I am not linking to them in any shape or form) printing a picture of a doggie or a dignified veteran and don’t read the small print where the facism lurks.
At the moment, the well-meaning idiots are worrying about offensiveness. It’s OK to disagree with other people’s religious beliefs, they bleat, but do you have to be so nasty and rude about it?
