Leftist Protester at UKIP Conference Mocks Autistic UKIP Member
In the small gathering (probably an overstatement) of Labour protesters outside of the UKIP conference in Torquay, there were quite a few offensive, abusive (and even racist) things shouted.
One of these was when a member (pictured above) who mocked a UKIP member for having autism.
Joel McGuigan was livestreaming the event when the man in question told him that he didn’t want to be filmed. Joel laughed as he walked away, to which the man said “Why is he laughing?! Is he autistic or something?!”
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Joel said:
At first I didn’t know whether he said “Autistic” or not, but a few hours later when I was reminded of the incident, I realised that he did!
I personally found it quite funny, because leftists claim they are the “tolerant” ones and other people aren’t, yet he called me autistic for filming him and Reece debating.
To me, it seemed he was suggesting that my actions were stupid, and therefore thought it was appropriate to grumble “autistic” as I walked away.
And then of course there’s the fact that I am autistic, which this man didn’t even know!
He did later apologise for the comment but of course, it was still said.
