J.K. Rowling has been in the news quite a bit lately for her Dudley Durlsey-esque tizzy fits over middle-eastern refugees. Rowling thinks western countries should fling the doors open and let every turban and burka-clad refugee in, no sorting hat required. Naturally, some folks disagree. You know, the ones who think a pinch of caution is in order.
Some have even pulled an epic troll on Rowling by demanding she put her galleons where her mouth is and put up refugees herself…
An online petition has asked Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has been an ardent supporter of allowing refugees from the Middle-East, to give shelter to 18 refugees in each of her 18 spare rooms.
The petition first details Rowling’s continued advocacy for open borders and allowing refugees into Europe and then alleges her and other rich elites to be ‘disconnected from the ugly reality.’ The petitioner claims Rowling has a total of 18 spare rooms combined in all her mansions in Britain, and then makes the case that she should provide long-term housing to 18 refugees, and also provide refugee shelters at the space available on her property.
In case you were interested, here’s the link to said petition. Feel free to sign it. You know you want to.
Funnily enough, all the petitioning and pointing out of her hypocrisy seems to have rendered J.K. Rowling rather mute. That, or she was hit with one of those pesky silencing charms.
Nevertheless, when faced with putting her house where her mouth is… Rowling fell apart like a derailed Hogwart’s Express. In typical leftist fashion, of course (see Angelina Jolie and Clooney: Massive Hypocrites When it Comes to Refugees…).
Wish I could say I didn’t see it coming…
