People speaking up and calling out others on their, um, nonsense, is not "persecution"

Free speech does not mean people have to be polite when presented with a load of garbage.

Free speech means people are free to say whatever they choose to within certain caveats. It does not mean I have to listen to, accept or agree with their choice of words.

I could call myself anything I want to, and everyone else is free to ignore that.

It is when you introduce extremist terrorising outfits like ANTIFA, shut down free speech at university campuses and public venues, and have SJWs attacking, and shouting and screaming at those with different views to their own. Likewise, vilifying those they disagree with and using all means both fair and foul to silence or remove those voices that disagree with them. Those are all persecutive tools of the left.

In the traditional sense I probably am.

The problem is in recent decades the mid point of the political continuum has shifted to the left leaving me in right-leaning-land. Some of those who shared my values have continued to support the UK Labour Party and in the US the Democrats which have abandoned their traditional supporters and sold out to corporate globalism, which if successful will make us dis-empowered prisoners to serfdom, all nicely tied up in a hand basket and led by anti-democratic, wealthy global elites. This was being achieved through the deployment of cultural marxism, but the time is up, people have seen through it - and just in time too!

Cultural Marxism, and how it has manifested across the western world:

Uploaded by someone called Amy Adams. Presumably not the actress.

I look down the list of other videos uploaded by this person and I see the one that made the news a while back of that guy not giving up the microphone at a white house press conference. The one famously doctored to make it appear something it wasn't.

But even the doctored one she has uploaded does not show what she sees fit to caption it with.

Strange - you don't see that as in any way continuing what began under Thatcher and Reagan and therefore indicative of a sharp step rightwards by those parties?

Began under Thatcher and Reagan? I don't agree with that. It began some years before them. Thatcher might have entertained it for a while (in the form of support for the corporate globalist EU) but after Kinnock's Labour Party warmed to it during her time as Prime Minister, she realised what it was and the threat to the British nation state and then fought hard against it. She was the first prime minister to be toppled over the creeping federal Europe project. British politics has been poisoned by it ever since but hopefully that is about to change!

The Cultural Marxism video is the one I posted. What part of that do you disagree with or are you in agreement with it?

Yes, but as I said, it was uploaded by a liar. I'm not going to pay any attention to something posted by a liar to suit their agenda.

And why is it that most Brexiters seem to get their information from sources with a proven history of BS and lies?

Its bizarre how he routinely posts blogs and videos of opinion as if they are facts.

Is there a Godwins law for mentioning Brexit? Back on topic please. Anyhow, we're not allowed to use terms like sluts with nuts, or chicks with dicks anymore, we use the term Men who talk too much now.
