    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 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".

    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?
    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!

    I think a lot of left-wingers on here just end up becoming exhausted. Reading this forum I get the impression that the thought-world of the average 18-25yo internet right winger is a very simple one. Things like good/bad, right/wrong, are all very easy things for them. Any attempt at nuance gets you labelled a 'terrorist sympathiser', 'SJW', or whatever. This isn't every right winger, of course. You have users like Rakas and Lib who actually use their brains, but many are just stubbornly ignorant - a by-product of internet culture where memes count as arguments and offending somebody or getting a negative response out of them is considered a victory. It drives people away, for reasons that are obvious.

    Thank you; sensible theories like this will go into the OP.

    Why aren't left-wing people more passionate?
    They are. But insults are thrown all the time, which puts people off.

    I really don't buy this argument; especially since, until recently, the most prominent right-wingers on here (this subforum) seemed to put the most thought into their posts.

    PRSOM. I agree with all of this but especially the bit in bold. I may be right wing but there's vocal minority of posters who's version of right wing is very different to my own.

    Agreed here. There's individuals on both sides of the political spectrum on this forum who aren't much better than trolls. Fair play if they keep the argument respectful & mature. However, plenty use far too much hyperbole, simplistic language & are more than happy to resort to ad hominem attacks with little provocation. I think some of the users on this forum need to learn that it's ok to agree to disagree.

    The leftist thought-world may be equally simple, but is typically well-intentioned and defensive. For many right wingers, the debate is 'won' for them when they have adequately 'triggered' somebody.

    That doesn't really work when people are dieing. Politics is mater of life or death a lot of the time. When you have disabled people dieing due to funding cuts the government behind that is the enemy if you care about these things and it isn't a matter of agreeing to disagree. Some people are just the enemy.

    I always feel defensive. Being left wing is like trying to make water run up a hill. It's exhausting. Where as from the outside being right wing just seems like a fun log flume ride down those rapids I'm trying push up against.

    Because those on the left are unable to put forth a proper argument - it's always just a couple of lines full of cliches and buzzwords with lefties.
