Persecuting and Killing Smokers is Normal

Cancer Council Western Australia would like you to know that they and everyone else hate you because you smoke.  Very kindly they have made an advertisement titled "How You're Seen" to further denormalise you, to demonise smokers.  The video isn't too bad -- I mean, no one is shooting the smokers at least.  Until you read the comments on the article:

not a bad idea @Paul

i’d love to shoot all the filthy smokers whose butts plague the high watermark of my local beach

Which pretty much sums up the hate campaigns of the past 20 years.

By the way, don't litter, please.  It's very bad form, and you might get shot.
