All well and good. I wouldn't want to be called that either!
But then I also wouldn't:
- say "violence is the only recourse left";
- call writer Tariq Ali (and my good friend's former boss) a "Paki journalist";
- say of President Chavez and his supporters: "only barbaric practices will neutralise them, much the same way as Khan did. I wish I was him.";
- say "I wish I was Khan and order my hordes to capture [supporters of Chavez] and pour melted silver into their eyes."
Needless to say, after these quotes came to light, Boyd realized the futility of trying to sue Livingstone--even in the U.K., where the standard for libel is much easier to prove than in the U.S.--because these quotes clearly demonstrate that Boyd's ideology is violent and terroristic.
So when you see anything come from Human Rights Foundation, please consider the above.
