    Why is TSR now so divided?

    Like you don't see many normal posts on here any more. Here are some of the TSR members you come across.

    - Totally hates Islam
    - Right wing nutter (kill all scroungers)
    - Extreme left wing (anyone rich is evil)
    - Anti immigration (we should stop anything coming into the UK since we're so self sufficient)
    - UK patriot still living in the era of the british empire when we only account for 2.3% of global GDP

    feel free to add any more. But what happened to normal TSR members?

    You've got to kidding me. This has been happening for the past 3-4 years.

    The new fad is how 9-5 is so depressing. *cough*

    9-5 is depressing though brah. It is sucking out the human spirit. Hence why a company with 90 billion + in cash could only come up with a PENCIL. But that's a separate issue.

    Yes it's been going on since the recession!

    People move with the times - Islam and immigration are the two biggest threats to the UK and western world and that is reflected in the posters who have researched and understand these two issues

    Extreme socialists perhaps a reaction to the cruel and punishing tory government?

    Right wing nutters been watching too much tory propaganda of benefit programs on c4 and c5

    Yeah i don't think they have done much "research" tbh. Media does the thinking for them. Both are intertwined mind you.

    Always helps. Some of the replies on TSR i come across are basic.But lets not get a head of ourselves that they are some sort of intellectual superiors.

    P.S I hope many more refugees come to the UK.

    Nobody claimed they are intellectually superior. Just that more and more people have decided to research Islam, read the Quran because it is causing so much conflict world wide daily and try to educate themselves.

    Naturally resentment to Islam follows

    Many other religious books i.e the bible carry similar views. So no naturally resentment does not follow. But i hear your points.

    It does because people don't bother to learn about the horrible parts of the bible because there is not daily atrocities committed in the name of Christianity

    but MANY atrocities have been committed in the name of the bible. MANY.

    Slavery
    Genocide
    Child abuse
    Medical neglect
    Homosexuality

    You name it pal. I see very little difference between both set for Christians have had a somewhat progressive era but many are turning away from traditional Christian values. Not many muslims are turning away from Islam, i think that's what troubles the west.
