    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

    so...you want me to justify....freedom.
    Again, another fallacy. You're suggesting that only people that believe in your specific ideology also believe in freedom. But i dont want you to justify anything, I just wanted to demonstrate how your justification for the aforementioned views was fallacious and you're an epitome of the type of right wingers OP and Captain haddock were referring to. Thank you for playing sheep.

    wow, was that an attempt at an insult? you sound like a ****ing grandma don't you?
    It wasn't an insult at all mate. Don't get defensive, im just pointing out another tactic right wing internet arguers use. But yes, I do think you're suffering from far too much free time. People here go to top unis and you go Exeter doing a BA. It shouldnt be surprising that inundating people with paragraphs while they have some real work to do will ultimately lead you to earn a sense of satisfaction you so desperately need.

    At least you're better than our good buddy Dodgypirate here. He went open uni, explains why he's got the time!

    I'm yet to see proof of that tbh
    a right wing mod would be like a 4 leaf clover.
    If memory serves me correctly, we have people who support Labour, Green, Lib Dem, Conservative, UKIP as their political party of choice on the team.

    Just because you may not have seen them doesn't mean a blanket statement at all of the staff is either relevant or factual, but there you go.

    Abolish the NHS, abolish state education, legalise guns, legalise private armies. Zero control of immigration. Castle doctrine.
    Which one of these do you support?

    Literally Hitler.

    Not sure I agree with abolishing state education even though I am very right wing. Every child needs basic education.

    ooh say fallacious again
    and only libertarians genuinely believe in freedom for freedom's or morality's sake. non-libertarians support it for pragmatic or fickle reasons relating to themselves. libertarianism isn't just freedom to one, it's freedom for all. anything other than libertarianism is "freedom only when it suits me" - an inconsistent, shadow belief in liberty

    It wasn't an insult at all mate. Don't get defensive,
    too right it wasn't, that was pathetic

    Hitler's rhetoric on Jewish people was basically identical to the rhetoric of the ANC on White people, they stole our history, they have all the money blahblahblah. Hitler was a progressive who also happened to be racist.

    Its perfectly possible; the far-right mods might moderate some small or nonpolitical subforum.
    what do you even mean by "far-right"? far right is as much a "non-concept" as "feminism". it has no definition.

    You have to admit, though, that to be a viable business, TSR has to attract advertisers, and to do this, it can't be seen to be a platform for right-wing views, since the advertisers will be student-related, and students are left-wing, less white, and more international.
    so they're sell outs. ahhhh.

    Mods' political views don't necessarily translate to how they moderate; their hands are kind of tied, imo.
    nahh, they report in a very imbalanced way if you want my account
    edit: I just remember that I'm not even ****ing allowed to discuss mod flaggings so I've removed all of my description because I have the utmost confidence that they will jump to the opportunity to flag me again. the fact theat they don't want me to discuss how they've flagged me in the past is just a testament to the fact that they don't like accountability.

    Whilst I agree that being a progressive overall and being racist are obviously not exclusive, can you please elaborate on what made Hitler a progressive?
    VIctim-complex, obsession with equality and the good honest Germans being swindled by another group without accepting that maybe they should work harder rather than crying like *****es after WW1. Eugenics was originally leftist too.

    It's not just about other people's kids, the country and civilisation you live in would collapse. Free basic education is one of the reasons the West is miles ahead in scientific output than other countries. Unless you're fine with the literacy rate and avg IQ dropping by 10 points, I don't think that's wise.

    Why does civilisation matter? If all goes to **** in this country I'll move.
