No, I'm pretty sure there are those who think Trump won the election and had it stolen. We've seen posts to say so. Or that Johnson is viewed by some here an incompetent liar while others will talk about his "world beating" achievements. I think that's a little more diverse than whether one lives in North London and supports Spurs rather than Arsenal.

That aside, if we're not of diverse opinion, where would the dogpiling start?

Is the conservative mind unable to conceive of the possibility that some people might hold considered views about things that aren't quite right without resorting to the "smug, liberal virtue-signallers" trope?

Acknowledges privilege exists.
Doesn't think people should speak up about it.
And if they do, they should be chastised with derogatory epithets.

And still some people have the gall to claim that the right is an ideology geared at protecting privilege!

Whenever I see a thread like this, I assume it is somebody who is laying groundwork.

BE has been infiltrated more than once by posters with much darker motives than the free and fair exchange of ideas. To a person, they all claimed victimhood when held to count.

In general . . .

If you want to post an opinion, be prepared to hear differing opinions. If you are afraid of differing opinions, then consider shutting your face when in the presence of other humans.

If you start posting lies and conspiracy theories, using your special new words (for things that we have perfectly good words for already), then I'm going to punch you in the dick.

The fact that you have been brainwashed (or have a financial motive for spreading lies) does not magically translate into my being required to tolerate batshittery. Your family will have to deal with your mental decline, not me. This isn't your family.

Perhaps our old friend P***** (I don't want to summon him from the great, dark beyond) is planning his return and is testing the waters to see if he can get special protection

If I say something controversial, I assume some will disagree. I don't need a poll to tell me that. However, telegraphing a future experience of being unfairly treated is a bit of a tell.

Either way, none of us have been in primary school for quite some time so I don't think we need any teachers to sort us out.

They've only posted more than once on any thread a few times. I'm outta here...
