Gotta lol at the butthurt SJWs taking serious offence to these two.

 

 

Hahhahah

 

Look what popped out of the woodwork!

 

Shoe's on the other foot - fascist losers crying tears in buckets.  "It's so unfair". LOL.

 

 

I think the most disappointing thing is how quickly this became a personal rather than intellectual argument.

 

 

 

 

Fair comment

 

 

So you'll retract your "SJW" and "butthurt" lies?

Not Twitter. Facebook.

Regardless, both platforms available for intelligent and stupid people.

Just because you’re ignorant of the evidence, doesn’t necessarily mean that there is none.

Let’s all stand up and give a round of applause for our very own, homegrown, hard left terrorists.

 

Just saw this. It is utterly loathsome. If true, it is despicable and indefensible. But this isn't a left/right issue. It is thugs ripping at the fabric of society, regardless of the label they wear. It is also why people like those fascist stirrers should not be welcomed here. This is precisely the kind of response they want and try to engender.

If what idiots post on twitter (edit - Facebook) was to be ignored, the world would be a better place.

 

If this idiot did what he said (phoned in a bomb threat), then he should be prosecuted.  AFAIK there's no evidence that he did what he said.

 

In any case, what he did or didn't do  doesn't make one iota of difference to the fact that Southern and Molyneux are alt-right / fascists.

Can we perhaps burr out the c-bomb?  Not sure we really need to see it on here.


If that twitter really did what they claim, then they are going to be in world of trouble.



Good call. Fixed.

Yes, rumour has it that the Police are indeed investigating.
And then our brave fellow quickly changed his tune.

Molyneux and Southern are claiming that they're victims of social injustice - because of a global conspiracy of "liberals" who are trying to undermine white/"Western" culture.

Behaviour like this is wrong and stupid and should be condemned. But don't try to turn it into a left/right issue. There is plenty of stupidity to go around.

Bringing that into this thread is also "whataboutism".

 

It should in no way influence perception of the message from Southern/Molyneux - but of course it does - it validates them as it implies that all resistance is violent.

 

Putin and Trump use this method to validate their own bullsh!t.

Both sides of a political debate will use all techniques available.  Logical fallacies, ad-hominen attacks, dog-piles (google it), selective use of statistics.  These are all common political techniques, and no group of people seems to be above using any of them.

 

As humans we love to define in-groups and out-groups and then exclude/denounce/attack the out-group. That's why we have -isms, fan-violence, religious conflict, and social media flare-ups over politics.  In-groups are great for motivating humans to behave in ways they ordinarily wouldn't.

 

Even those who genuinely value and advocate for exclusivity and equality will be motivated to some extent by defining their own in-group(s).

Ah - the "both sides" argument.

 

There shouldn't be any "both sides" of a "debate" with fascists, racists and bigots - or flat-earthers or Obama-birthers for that matter.

I did - and moon-landing deniers, chemtrails.

 

This is the one that Southern and Molyneux push:

 

White genocide conspiracy theory

 

It's become a cult.

I am opposed to all forms of racism, including against whites, but I just can’t see race in itself as an issue. It only becomes an issue when people use superficial differences in appearance as an excuse to treat each other differently. I am ‘white’ but I couldn’t care less if my race goes extinct or not, except in the sense that any loss of biological uniqueness is to be regretted. But there is already such blending of the races that very few of us are pure anything anymore.

 

White supremacists like our fascist visitors are either evil profiteers or pathetic morons, or sometimes both. Their ideas are stupid and their beliefs are evil. No race is superior to any other. No group of humans, whether defined by race or any other criteria, should be treated differently from any other group. Everyone deserves respect. Except pathetic racists. They deserve contempt. And maybe, if you are feeling generous, a little pity.
