Americans often don’t realize how obsessed we are with race and gender and how much people in the rest of the world just don’t care about this stuff. Not saying idpol is an American thing, it definitely exists in many places, but the fixation for American people and politicians on race issues is fa...

Sure it was, Trump invited everyone over for the 6th long in advance having fuelled hysteria over a stolen election for two months.. it didn't just occur out of context. Where is your evidence that Trump was behind the storming of the U.S. Capitol? Hasn't the Democratic Party been falsely claiming ...

I listen to the speech he gave before the storming and he asked his supporters to peacefully protest.

I was talking about the attack on the capitol, that was definitely Trump supporters, although a radical fringe and not at all representative of most Trump supporters

The issue is bigger than Trump. Like I mentioned earlier, many twitter accounts associated with #Walkaway and the Pro Life March were also deleted, despite not breaking any twitter ToS rules nor inciting any sort of hate or violence. This seems like a cover for twitter to silently strike down other...

I'm not really liking any of these - but I guess AfD? They strike me as being a bit akin to the GOP, another party I have serious issues with. While AfDs anti immigration and anti EU stance is good, along with social conservatism, many factions of the party have links to racist organizations so in ...

Again, I am not arguing the Republicans are right on the free speech issue, they are wrong. What surprises me is your ok walking down that path. I'm ok with shutting down a person who's tried to overthrow democracy, because the right to vote for your government is the fundamental free speech we hav...

That’s debatable, but considering this is an overall anti abortion movement, you’re tying in other issues into this movement despite it not calling for it.

I assume you have a very broad definition of what counts as "hate" then? The American "pro-life" movement is a Christian fundamentalist front whose dogma is firmly rooted in a very reactionary view of gender, sexuality and personal freedom. Which is untrue because of the amount ...

Worship of people should be avoided in general, imho. Even the greatest people to live should be looked upon with a rational mindset. None of them were perfect, none of them were monsters, they were all human. No, no, a lot of them were monsters. George Washington certainly wasn’t, in fact he was t...
