Tim Pool on Avi Yemini and Jim Jefferies

A measured take from Tim Pool re: the whole Avi Yemini/Jim Jefferies mess:

I agree with Pool's point that this isn't a question of whether Jim Jefferies was too offensive. It is, rather, about Jefferies's hypocrisy in posing as pro-Muslim while being virulently anti-Muslim when he thinks the cameras aren't rolling. Hypocrisy, and a lack of balls: the guy is a yellow-bellied coward. I don't seriously wish death upon Jefferies, but I do think it would be funny if a pissed-off imam decided to issue a fatwa calling for Jefferies's head. The Aussie comic would get a real taste of what it's like to be Salman Rushdie.
