Leader of the Gang Mentality

Those of us currently on the grind in offices nationwide will have no doubt enjoyed our inboxes being flooded with mildly amusing Gary Glitter photomanips over the past week and a half. Accordingly, you’d probably expect the comments left under Youtube clips of Paul Gadd back in his pomp to roll along a similar vein of “lol paedo”. You’d be wrong. Very very wrong.

What’s seemingly been overlooked in the recently flurry of Glitter-bashing is that the child molester still has a sizeable following. And they’re not ashamed to make their voice heard. Here’s some random comments pulled from beneath the video to “Leader Of The Gang”:

Thank god he hasn’t been forced to return to the UK, where he is demonised by the media. I can really see his career taking off again in Hong Kong and hopefully spread throughout Asia.

Good luck, Gary!

Leader!!! Come on, Gary, let’s have another tour. He’s paid his debt to society. Time to let bygones be bygones.

You obviously haven’t read a lot of the comments on this video. Other child sex offenders have a chance to be rehabilitated into society, but unfortunatley Gary is so famous (or infamous) that he will never get that chance, whatever else he is, he is FOREMOST one of the greatest pop artists EVER, and whatever else the media takes away from him they will never take that.

I suppose if i got chased all over the wourld
for somthing i didnt do i would age very fast,
stress as you know is a killer am supprised he has lasted so long getting hounded from piller to post.
Belive it he is a nice guy nd dosent need abuse he is getting (all his life has done charity works ect)but people forget about that.
regards.

So who’s the real bad guy in all of this? Is the man travelled half way across the world to fuck an 11-year-old? Or is it Rebekah Wade? Let’s see what “marksoutof10” says:

I just want to scream at The S*n – OK, you hate the man. You’ve made that point over and over ad nauseam. Now, why don’t you start doing what a newspaper is supposed to do; i.e. report the news, and leave your personal feelings out of it?

Which is a fair point: the sooner newspapers stop forcing unpopular opinions like “statutory rape is a bad thing” on the public, the sooner we can all go home happy. Although maybe the public don’t deserve to be happy, because Glitterheads have beef with the great unwashed as well:

A great song by a great man. I for one am glad to see Mr Glitter back in the UK. Whatever mistakes he made in the past should stay in the past, and we should all just concentrate on his musical achievements rather than condemning him over his private life.

You gotta love the public. Now that Glitter has been released from jail they’ve got nothing better to do that go to you tube and listen to classics like this. Of course, once they have, they have to post a hate message, just to convince themselves they are here for moral reasons. They are not fooling me. They wanted to listen to this great music!

It’s not all positive though. Some people are a little conflicted as to whether raping pre-teens should put you off a person’s music, but thankfully Gaz is a hetero child molesters, so he’s still got props over here:

This is how I remember Gary – he was the leader. I don’t agree with poedophiles and think they are perverted shits, especially boys on boys but I still like Glitter as those Glam Rock days were cool fun.

For those of you keen for more insights from “kevthewitch”, you can check out any of his wide range of videos for those with an interest in paganism, or just simply view this fantastic video here which I’ve just spent five minutes trying to come up with a zing for that doesn’t reference Comic Book Guy. I failed.

Alternately, some commenters just seem to have been driven into dementia by Glitter’s treatment by the fourth estate:

Blond and deaf people can destroy lives in a number of ways. The lives of the people who must care for them can be destroyed by a lack of freedom. Imagine having to look after a blind person 24 hours a day. You’d have no life of your own.

Most of the Glitter videos on Youtube are uploaded by a man called “HisWestiness”, who is keen to point out that he does “DO NOT CONDONE PAUL GADD/GARY GLITTER’S BEHAVIOUR IN ANY WAY!!”, but lists his interests as “Listening to Gary Glitter and collecting all Glitter – like memorabilia” and includes The Outhere Brothers and Snow among his favourite bands.

Let’s look at some more top notch comments from Glitter defenders on Youtube:

“I’d attack him without an inch of thought.” That skinhead really had no idea how stupid he sounded making that remark. Apart from being bad English (thought isn’t measured in inches, moron), it shows how thugs like him and his mates will not and cannot think their ideas through. These guys admit on camera that they’d happily kill Gary Glitter if they ever met him…so, paedophilia is bad, but murder is OK? That kind of logic would be funny, if it wasn’t just plain sick.

25-year-old Riga resident “garethac81” actually uploaded his first ever Youtube video the other day.  He looks like a Gamesmaster journalist from 1993, and all of the “related videos” for this clip are of the Jonas Brothers. I’m not saying anything.

Thanks for uploading this. But this is not a revelation, this was just lazy journalists getting a trip abroad to discover nothing we didnt already know! GG is like Hitler everything that he does is going to be BAD and sinister. So why another pious programme I could have tracked Gary down for a fifth of the cost!

he was a starr and lived a rock stars life good for him

And when a BBC interview gave an utterly banal interview with him on News 24 the other week?

the interviewer is nothing but an anally retentive feminist lesbian bitch

“rabadminj”’s profile, by the way, lists him as the “KWF heavyweight champion”. A little googling reveals solely one UK wrestling federation known as the KWF, which has a wonderful advert here: http://halifax.kijiji.ca/c-jobs-tv-media-fashion-KWF-Wrestler-W0QQAdIdZ64912031

We are looking for kids by the ages of 11-14 to come join Kids Wrestling Federation Contact me by email if you are interrested.

Fantastic.

Look, we could be here all day. Let us just leave it at the facts that there’s some hilarity to be had on these Youtube videos, and if you’re looking for a change from your usually Have Your Say-ing to tear your hair out at people moaning about political correctness gone mad, you could do a lot worse off than go here. To end, here’s Joan Jett covering “Do You Wanna Touch”. Fucking Carmen Electra > fucking 11-year-old Vietnamese children:

    I just came across this blog which, amongst various mocking references to Gary Glitter fans, also takes an unusually keen interest in me. For the record, I can neither agree nor disagree with the accusation that I “look like a Gamesmaster journalist from 1993″…I wouldn’t know what one looks like myself. However, I can confirm that there are NO related videos of the Jonas Brothers linked to any video of mine. I went back and checked just to make sure – not one, none, nada. I happen to despise the Jonas Brothers.

    That’s all.
