Right wing people are just full of hatred and have backwards thinking. They seem to have a hatred for races and nationalities that aren’t the same of them. They can’t accept that this is the new world now where whites can live peacefully with other races, and gays/trans is okay. They’re jealous really 💅

I'm not a conservative. I probably wouldn't vote seriously but if you twisted my arm and forced me to I'd probably vote libdems. I'm generally unwilling to vote for parties I don't align with so wouldn't vote labour.
Oh I don't mean to say you're Conservative. I'm just more pointing that this mindset can make people susceptible to right wing propaganda. I've talked to people on various political Discords where they've experienced this. Although I'd say that the Liberal Democrats are soft Tories whereas the new crop of Tories are Paleoconservative. Probably not all, but they're clearly trying to copy out of Trump's play-book. I don't see the point of the Liberal Democrats under FPTP their goose will always be cooked and they've done a lot to mutually screw over students helping Tories put tuition fees on higher educational institutions. Of course though if they're the most likely to win in your area via way of polls then that's understandable. Also you'll find a lot of lefties don't like how Keir Starmer is managing Labour. He's fractured the base.

Can you give me an example of ideas and belief that are inconsistent and contain double standards?
(Lol this sounds rude but I just want to have some sort of evaluation for the leftists)
Sure:

  • Racism is viewed as a thing that happens directed by a white person towards a non-white person. I think this is a toxic thing to carry forward, it is not difficult to just condemn all racial prejudice (which is synonymous with racism despite attempts to rewrite the definition) equally.
  • It is viewed as acceptable for women to hold negative attitudes towards men due to negative experiences with men, (this fuels some internalised biphobia, etc.) but unacceptable for men to hold negative attitudes towards women due to negative experiences with women. (they may be branded an incel, etc.) I don't think the fact that more/most women have had negative experiences with men changes anything, and frankly for a movement meant to champion minorities I'm shocked that "yeah but that doesn't happen nearly as often" is considered a valid argument.


Stuff like that.

This is a huge misconception a lot of Conservatives have. Why are universities so commercialised in the first place? Why is the world so ****ed up? Why are countries going to war over falsified information? Why are billionaires doing whatever they want? Why are our governments so useless? These are questions we ask ourselves but when we do, we get told to shut up and just accept it.
Most students questioning these things can't even tidy up their own bedroom. They should learn to manage their actual problems before setting off trying to change the world.

First of all, who are the left?/What makes someone a leftist?
Because the lefts are a bunch of sensitive snowflakes.

So from what I gathered, leftist- people who believe that there is a ruling class in society and the free market exploits them, they want gender equality, support LGBTQ community, want more progressive taxes and government intervention?

Liberal- they support LGBTQ community, want gender equality, but do think that there are benefits to keeping capatilst markets/free markets and don't want as much government intervention as leftists?

What does that even mean outside of an objective logically fallacious ad-hominem and false dichotomy attack? Come on friend at least let's have a good faith dialogue here. You've seen Q-anon right?

Percieved hypocrisy.

I think it's a shame that these views represent such a diverse group of ideologies, so I hope we can move past them soon.

Basically yes

You don't understand racism or sexism then.

I'm not particularly left leaning politically. The above is not about left or right - its about you not understanding when skin colour is considered more important than other characteristics. Have you not ever wondered that?

My friend described Keir Starmer as secretly a Tory, would you agree with this statement?
My teacher also said that blue (conservative) is the new red (labour), would you also agree with this statement?
Who do you think should be in charge of the labour party and why do you think it's less appealing nowadays?


Sorry I find you interesting so I wanna know what u think 😁✌️

I'd vote for libdems mainly because I'm repelled so much by Starmer and a lot of labour voters (seems silly to say considering it's like half the country), and because they're the only party brave enough to actively push for drug reforms.

And the right aren't? Seriously, the amount of times I've seen people cry over boys wearing dresses, gay people being in a happy relationship, BLM, pronouns and any other form of social progression is laughable.

Elaborate. I understand racism as prejudice based on race, and sexism as prejudice based on sex/gender identity. My post does not contradict that.

Claiming I'm less educated/aware because I disagree with you is one of the characteristics that annoy me I did not mention, for what it's worth. I have not seen as many on the right do that.

I genuinely don't know if you're aware of this or not, but people that are not white can be right wing. I'm not ethnically English and I am centrist.
