Alright, busted. But as we cant actually establish the facts one way or the other I dont mind venting my frustration at the President. I did it to Obama as well, so I'm totally unbiased in my venting when it comes to foreign policy. Even if none of the presidents have a choice you could still argue they have a high level of complicity. Unless the secret services threaten their lives or something along those lines.

 

I understand many of the reasons for supporting Trump. The problem is I feel that Trump is just as idiotic at the political correctness brigade, just on the opposite side of the political spectrum. I dont want to support one of two bad options. If I was american and I had to vote then I'd have to choose (or choose an independent) but as I'm not I'll choose to dislike them both.

 

edit: I'm sure Trump has done some good things, but he has a fair size catalogue of bad things too.

Trump at best capitalizes the fear of already dogmatic conservatives, he isn't a threat to any individual, group or society. Arguably.  ;) 

The PC brigade is simply the scapegoat of a much broader problem in western society, that would eventually, if no true counter-culture arised, give us problems that'd make WW2 look like a cakewalk.

 

"Just as bad" doesn't cut it and is an easy way out in my opinion, often used by people who are afraid of voicing their true opinion (not intentionally implying you are) regarding religion (islam=buddhism), politics (trump=hillary) etc.

I'm hesitant to agree about the 'broader problem' as I dont know what exactly that term contains. But i agree in as much that I dont know of a bigger threat to our freedom than the ideological extremists that seem to dominate university campuses now.

The thing that upsets me most about the current political situation is that 'liberal' has become a dirty word. To be liberal is a very admirable thing and incredibly important for the health of our society. Most of the people labelled 'liberals' as an insult are in fact not liberal at all. There is nothing liberal about political correctness. I also think its very irresposible of the conservatives who use it as a slur to dirty such a great word.

I only say that Hillary/Trump are as bad as each other because I honestly think that. On other matters I am more than happy to come down on one side or the other. With regards to the religion example, Islam is without question the most dangerous religion. Thats not a political view,its just a fact. Its no good people pretending that everything is absolutely equal if it plainly isnt. That would just be an act of blind wishful thinking.

I assume we're both europeans, and there is some dislike towards it coming from nationalists here but using 'liberal' as a slur is mostly prominent in the U.S. It's quite funny actually, because republicans idealogically, stand much closer to true liberalism than the democrats, and especially more so than the PC club, as you state, yet find the word so repulsive. I disagree with your opinion on 'true' liberalism and its health for our society though, I'm very tired but I will elaborate on that and the 'broader problem' tomorrow.
 
Islam is indeed the most dangerous religion, and also one of many threats to our free society, thoughts on this?;

Tax-funded british public service, the BBC, yet again undermines british identity, trying to brush it away as something interchangeable cosmopolitan. Pay attention to the like/dislike ratio. Important. 

 

British identity, rather than being two gentlemen in top hats and monocles drinking tea, is pakistani grooming gangs deliberately targetting thousands of white girls as the police stands by letting it happen in fear of being called racists. 

 

Of course, this sort of nonsense from the BBC is nothing new and has been going on for decades now, gradually wiping out any sense of pride in their "make belief" identity. 

 

The positives with things like this, is that it makes Angus, Clark and Sarah who has voted labour and tory their entire lifes wake the fuck up.
