    Perhaps because the left wing and its accompanying SJWs have been exposed for what they really are?

    Why specifically this subforum then?
    Because its becoming like the old religion forum. 80-90% of new threads involve Islam in one way or another and we know what TSRians like to bash the most.

    What's wrong with being anti-SJW or libertarian? Nationalism (which also isn't exclusive to the right wing - I.e the SNP and Plaid Cymru) is a different issue but people are entitled to their opinion.

    If you look at the daily polls to do with political affairs, most TSR members seem to hold left-leaning beliefs because those make up the majority of poll opinions. But many of them don't seem to want to discuss politics and prefer other sections of the forum, or they will leave a comment here or there but not return to the thread to debate. On the other hand, the right-wing posters seem to be more vocal about their views in general. Perhaps they feel more of a need to persuade others to their beliefs? Perhaps more of them are angry and passionate?

    I speak as a vocal left-winger.

    I think there's a lot of truth to that. It's not difficult to forget that you're in a minority school of thought as a right-winger, and I suppose that compels you to speak up as much as possible when you can. The relative anonymity of TSR makes a great deal of people feel more comfortable doing so than they otherwise might face-to-face.

    The answer to the OP is that TSR is more reflective of the country than OP's (probably Labour) echo circles. The Libertarianism stems from the middle class demographic while the nationalism and anti-SJW stems from the fact that the userbase is mostly outside of London and heavily male.

    Is that really unrepresentative of the country as a whole outside London? I live outside of Bradford and i can tell you that most white folk have a very negative perception of that religion and its followers and these are people who are exposed to that hellhole rather than out in the sticks. Anecdotal perhaps but backed by polling. Britain aint Islam friendly outside of the circles of power.

    Pretty easy. Right-wingers suffer from inferiority complexes or are narcissists, that is why they like to consider others as inferior and put them down (which is what being right wing boils down to really). Internet forums are a great playground for people who like to put people down, so it's likely to find many right-wing nut-jobs there.
    I salute you...that was awesome

    I have heard that to be the case in Bradford especially. Out of interest, what do the white population you describe actually say about the significant Muslim population in Bradford? Why are they so negative towards it?

    I find it perplexing that you have the nerve to preach the moral high ground while simultaneously labelling the right with a blanket insult. Those on the right do not suffer from a superiority complex, but are against the new wave of western progressive politics which defies fundamental principles in favour of political correctness and virtue signalling. If all you can do is demean and berate those who align - politically - different from yourself, perhaps you need to get out of your echo chamber and explore the right wing narrative. The left have tried condescension as a political mean for a few years now - evidently, it hasn't seemed to have worked.

    Uhhh, I'm right-wing and the people that pass as "right-wing" on here, I'd not want to associate with unless I was on crack.

    As far as I'm concerned, right-wingers are patriotic, market oriented, skeptical of government intervention, against PC, in favour of strong defence.

    The kind of people on here that identify as right-wing are nationalist lunatics who think someone having a British passport should guarantee him a shitload of privileges and state-sanctioned "rights".

    Basically the city is extremely deprived and the Muslim population has expanded hugely (the next census will find 35%+, it does not feel English and because they all conglomerate the perception is that these people don't fit in, are criminals, groom girls (wait until there's a study in Bradford, it will make Rochdale look tame) and generally are a waste of space. There is also a perception that it is unsafe and that there are basically Muslim zones.

    Basically instead of creating a multi-cultural city or a British city with Muslim Brits, it's become a place which is no longer part of British society and where white folk will likely be replaced. It's already elected George Galloway and is known by most as 'Bradistan'.

    I have a lot of sympathy for Muslim individuals who may well mean well but i detest Bradford and the political complacency that has allowed it to become what it is.

    I've chosen not to mention the number of terrorist suspects its also produced.

    I am condemning a bunch of disgusting, mostly uneducated thugs who need to put weaker people down to make themselves feel better. Call it taking the moral high ground if you will...

    Of course they do, it's all they do. Right wing is all about shielding a nation from foreign individuals or influence, both of which are considered as bad. Of course right wingers deny this as it outs them as what they are, xenophobic nationalists, but that doesn't change that it is the truth.

    I assume by political correctness you mean not being racist, xenophobic, homophobic, or any other toxic attitudes of the plebs - I fully agree with you then!

    Those who I demean and berate have well and truly earned it, and still do it every day. You're earning it right now!
