Indeed. Politically correct. You might have fallen hook line and sinker for everything the Guardian feeds you, but don't think anyone else but your already converted little clique will.

Why do they all say the same thing? Do you count different degrees of the same thing as diverse?

Different coloured backgrounds in the videos?

Different products for sale in the ads?

That is self evidently untrue though. What about retired Marxists?

Marxists who haven't completed their training are forbidden from activism. It's a bit like students at Hogwarts can't practice magic outside of school.

There was a video released from Chicago last night showing the reason cops keep shooting suspects more than a few times.

Guy with knife got tazed after stabbing someone, got back up and attempted to stab an officer, then her partner keeps shooting the guy until he goes down.

Logic failure. It may show the reason why that cop shot that person multiple times. It doesn't show the reason why unarmed people doing things like running away, or kneeling with their hands in the air, or sitting in their cars, are shot multiple times. Or at all.

Yeah right. They should move to America, they’ll be lucky if they get a week’s vacation after working for a year. Forget a week in Umbria closely followed by a run to Calais to stock up on wine, like Marxists in the U.K.
