A waste of time and money

I'm sure most here are familiar at least with the term strawman when it comes to debate and discussion. It generally means...  a type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.
There is however another term or common phrase... 'you cannot sue a man of straw'
It means that you should not attempt to sue a man of straw as they will have no money to pay for the case even if you win.
WELSH rock heroes Manic Street Preachers are said to be considering legal action after the English Defence League (EDL) used one of their songs to promote a rally.
Correction, the EDL didn't, an individual of the EDL used the song, the EDL have their own public relations people and the use of the song wasn't sanctioned by the EDL.
'If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next,' which became the group's first number one single in 1998, was used as the soundtrack to a video on the EDL's website.
Indeed it did, it was linked too from YouTube, as are a lot of videos made by patriots and opponents of the EDL. Linking to an official source generally means that any legal action will be pointless or useless. Incidentally Youtube haven't pulled it as of writing.
EDL supporters clearly misunderstood the song's sentiment, as it is actually a call to arms for anti-fascists and was inspired by the rise of General Franco in the Spanish civil war.
Um no, EDL supporters recognise a fascistic totalitarian control system masquerading as a religion when they see it. Islam is fascistic, hence the producer used a song about fascism...
The producer used the song to highlight the beheading of Lee Rigby, if we tolerate this, then our children will be next... get it?
I know the guy who produced the video, he comments on the EDL forum where I'm a moderator. He he still lives with his parents and has no savings hence the man of straw comment...
Sometimes you just wonder at the desperation of the MSM and the leftards in society.

Here's the video link...
