Twitter is trolling Nigel Farage and it is absolutely brilliant
UKIP's leader, ex leader, leader again, then ex leader, Nigel Farage, is being mercilessly trolled by Twitter users, and it is absolutely brilliant.
Farage's tweet was a response to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's appearance at Glastonbury on Sunday. In true Farage fascism.. sorry, fashion, the ex-UKIP leader tweeted abuse at Corbyn's young and left-leaning support base:
Instantly regretting the tweet, Farage soon learnt that hell hath no fury like a scorned young and politically aware Brit.
One sec, Nige...
Twitter users quickly seized the opportunity (and means of production) to mock Nigel senselessly...
Just googled Marxism. I'm now a Marxist. Thank you for opening my eyes, Comrade Nigel. ✊— hrtbps (@hrtbps) June 24, 2017
Nigel, I bought this off the back of your tweet. Really opened my eyes. Thank you again, Comrade. pic.twitter.com/sSdWD5j3gp— hrtbps (@hrtbps) June 25, 2017
Just spoken to the lads at work. Nigel, we're unionising. Gonna strike for better pay and conditions. Couldn't have done this without you.— hrtbps (@hrtbps) June 25, 2017
Others shared with Nigel their newly enlightened outlook after following his advice:

Even the really younger generations were getting involved:
After seeing Nigel's tweet my 2 year old son decided to google Marxism, resulting in him buying two new books on his amazon account. pic.twitter.com/z2GMisi8JF— Ben (@SpionKlopp) June 26, 2017
Some sought to point out the irony in Farage's tweet:
Have this lot had a look at what they're actually supporting? Google 'Neo-Fascism'. pic.twitter.com/PeHPyxxJJd— Jake Johnstone (@hijakejohnstone) June 24, 2017
Thanks for the Politics lesson, Nige, hopefully after that quick google we'll be getting top Marx.. (sorry).
