Mums defend their children, often regardless of danger to themselves and often with complete disregard for the facts. Whatever I did wrong, I know mine will be there for me.
I agree with those who don’t like the term SoB. It extends the insult beyond the person one wants and demeans their mum. If mums ruled, even the mums of criminals, there would be fewer wars.
The issue with Asbo, is that he himself brings mums into the debate.
In one tweet he insults the mother of two recently convicted child sex groomers. He justifies it on the basis that she was quoted in the press as denying their guilt.
I read the same article, and all I saw was a desperately confused woman, who was thrust in front of the media and said what any mum would. “I don’t believe they did it.” It is wrong, but also sad. After all she didn’t do it and there is no suggestion that she either aided or covered up.
Just a sad and rather pathetic mum, grieving for the loss of her innocence.
“Jahangir Akhtar @Jahangirakhtar20 May
Vile comments by mum of Oxford grooming pair blames victims !!! If you had brought up em better love, they wouldn’t have turned in to monsters”
The other thing is his lack of respect for his own mum when he says such things. After all we don’t blame her for him, his brother and son beating up some innocent people and getting serious convictions.
I’ll bet a tenner that she would have defended them saying they were innocent or blaming the victims as bad people, drug dealers money launderers or some such.
That’s what mums do.
Lastly it is misogyny. As ever mums get the blame, while the father hardly gets a mention.
So a word to Asbo. Show some dignity and respect for others, then maybe it will be returned out of fondness.
Don’t make a cheap and easy hit by attacking a mum, get the Council to come clean.
