    Everyone has the right to voice their opinions. I hate both of them, although I can't help but find Farage entertaining at times.

    balanced Agreed, Nick Griffin in the perfect example of why people shouldn't be censored.
    yeah everyone has the right to voice their opinions... but it might get too dangerous if extreme opinions get voiced out influencing so many people (especially if these opinions favour a certain part of society, maybe a particular race?)... and it's unfair for particular opinions to get far more coverage than others.... then it becomes full on propaganda.

    They do of course. Everyone has the right to free speech. Just because you don't agree with them, doesn't make you right.

    no opinion is right..... but some opinions create dangerous national and global concepts and generate hate and exaggerated fear that divide people and put them against each other

    And airing them, challenging them, talking about them........ Is the only way to solve them

    of course Trump and people like him have the right to have their voices heard... but don't you think they're getting more media coverage than they deserve?

    and I don't think anyone with a logical mindset would want opinions that create divisions, more than there are divisions between people already, to receive over-the-top media coverage

    that's not the point... yes they deserve airing.... but they're being aired over the top and the attention they are getting is not healthy

    Yes; like it or not thats how democracy works, i might disagree with them but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed a voice. Whether people like it or not, these two men speak for a large number of people, to stop them would only cause greater resentment and fuel the cause further.

    when you have nothing else to say... you start tuning tables and pointing fingers... anyways people like me my friend at least see the world from different perspective...
    and I'm not putting it on Trump... he's just a dangerous clown... it's his ideas that are creating divisions and you would be mentally blind and deaf if you deny that

    Yeah, more chance of them being publicly laughed at if they get more air time.

    Everyone already pointed out the issues with your statement. But they forgot to mention- Trump and Farage are actually interesting to watch since they aren't Politically Correct extremists like a lot of politicians. Watching them roast and break the norms is interesting and fun. Definitely something that sells, definitely something that should always be aired. Money>Everything else.
