    That's not the point. People are not allowed to criticise stuff anymore, and if they do then they fear that they will get into trouble. It is like a Liberal KGB is running the country. The Government and the 'middle classes' do not give a monkeys about the working class.

    Not really. I have no problem being critical, but I dont feel the need to do it in a racist, misogynistic or ageist way.
    I have never feared getting into trouble as I keep within the law.

    What have the middle class or working class got to do with it?

    If you wnat to be a racists its not illegal but you need to do it in your own home. If you start airing your views to other people then undersandable some of them are going to get offended. Try it in school or work or why not at a football ground, see what people think. Good luck and enjoy.

    My point is people like Frankie Boyle are not given enough air time because they are deemed too offensive. My point is, if you're offended, switch the channel.

    Furthermore, both politics and correctness should be banned. They are dangerous even when separated.

    Not on public channels where it breaks broadcasting guidelines. Nobody stops him doing his live show or appearing on subscription channels.

    If you want to enjoy racism then do it in your own home.

    I think the correct title of this thread should have been:

    Should political correctness be banned?

    I also think that some of your views are politically incorrect and should therefore be banned.

    So, in order to counter perceived, implicit restrictions on free speech, you want to introduce literal and explicit restrictions on free speech?

    The irony is lost on you, it seems.

    The other irony is that the right wing PC gone mad brigade actually have a problem with private property being able to silence people. The owners of Twitter can do what they like on their service. I'm sympathetic to people who worry that the ways we communicate on the internet are all owned by private individuals and companies. But that is because I am a filthy socialist.

    Absolutely. Society has been going downhill ever since it became socially unacceptable to throw bananas at black people.

    How could we ban political correctness? The goyim would be supporting walls for their countries and not just walls for Israel? They would be saying that white people are a group to be respected not just the bachar people.
