    The right wing are a very touchy and hypocritical group. They're loud mouth is actually a defence mechanism because they've realised that their ideologies are drowning into irrelevance.

    We are intelligent enough to reject the leftist brainwashing to which we were subject at high school and have reset the clock to zero before ushering in a new era of rightist thought, our dawn, a golden dawn.

    that's what it's poking fun at, people think they're special for not totally aligning with one side of the spectrum when really it's very common

    The DM is leftist, the fact that anyone considers those half-assed amateurs right shows just how far left we've gone.

      I wouldn't even call it conservatism/liberalism per se - I just like policies that make sense. So, even though I might be described as a fiscal conservative (loathe as I am to being called any kind of conservative), I think the people who go by that name in, say, America are quite mistaken. They believe the way to deal with a 2007/08-style recession is to cut spending to the bone because they don't think there's any great difference between government and household spending. :facepalm:

      What...... I am quite sure that DM is rightist. They support the Conservatives and they make loads of immigrant and muslim scare stories. Sure they may have made one or two critisisms about right wing canditates and political groups but they are predominantly right.

      Remember the Red Ed articles?

      The Conservative party is so left-wing it's unreal.

      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.
      its a cliche. If you're not left wing when your young then you don't have a heart. If you're not right wing when your old, you don't have a brain. I disagree with it completely. If you're right wing, then you don't have a heart or brain

      The american style of fiscal conservatism contradicts liberal social policies by hurting the poor and benefiting the rich. Especially concerning deregulation.

      Ok... did you know that other policies are right wing? Or are you those kind of people who argue that only people who agree with your opinions are right/left wing?

      I don't think you realise that there are other policies (some of which are supported by the conservatives) which are right wing.

      Additionally your opinion about zero control of immigration isn't really that right wing.

      Just because you don't agree with an opinion doesn't mean that it is not a righty opinion.

      Your argument is fallacious. It's also like suggesting that being left wing is good on the basis that fascism is bad. You're and epitome of popular internet culture in recent years has led to mindless half witted right wingers that make fallacious statements and have created a safe space of lies.

      What's so hilariously ironic about this thread is that the quoted responses in the OP are exactly the kind of idiotic holier-than-thou responses that make people pissed off with the left and turn to the right.

      Calling all right wingers narcissists? Or idiots? Way to go guys, especially from senior voices on TSR.

      you can have left wing fascism, pumpkin.
      the opposite of libertarianism is authoritarianism. that's just a fact. screw me. if you're libertarian, you don't think like an authoritarian. if you're an authoritarian, you think of government as your playground and you won't care about the cost to freedom. that's why it's so polar. you can't just say "ohh I only care about it here but not there" - libertarianism isn't like that. if you're like <that, you're an authoritarian, because you desire authority and you only like liberty when it suits you. libertarianism, hence, is a rejection of that clear "government is my toy" ethic. it's very clear cut like that.

      you know, the opposite of being a globalist or an SJW isn't being a right winger. do you think sargon is a right winger? do you think shoeonhead is a right winger? do you think chrisraygun is a right winger? um...no. don't generalise.
