    A poisonous, festering turd of an ideology that deserves its own thread.

    And if someone else says it better then just leave it to them...



    God bless Jonathan Pie.

    Jonathon Pie always hits the spot.

    A wonderful example of poisonous identity politics-

    Good idea to put all the right wing whining in one thread

    It should be the perfect thread for you now that you've been outed as a right wing homophobe.

    I get the subtle hint; but yes, absolutely.

    That's a far more dangerous example of identity politics.

    Thankfully I don't think those incense torch carrying merkins even qualify as a minority, such is their tiny number.

    The worst thing the left can do is call every Trump voter a Nazi, because the above is what a real Nazi looks like.

    Meh, I don't care much for your meltdown, I just want to know why you've got a problem with gay people.

    I think it's a good idea for a thread but Identity politics, in particular the damaging stuff, is not the reserve of one side of politics.

    If this thread is opening to discussion on retarded shit from Tumblerinas demanding to be recognised as gender fluid unicorns to Evangelicals stripping away sex ed in favour of abstinence based education because their sky man told them to I think it's a grand idea.

    I think that's particularly why it is a good idea for a thread.

    Is this where you post about people getting upset about the kids movie Frozen?

    Like I said, both sides covered, great idea.

    If it's just going to be about Feminists and the far left, we've got the SJW thread.

    I have no idea how this is relevant.

    You're showing me a video of one racist woman, why?

    63 million people voted for Trump.

    This thread isn't going the way the OP intended.

    The hoped for "Good leftie bashing" hasn't quite worked.

    When you put it like that I'm starting to come around, the answer really is more guns.

    Why would I expect that when "righties" are outnumbered about 4-1 on this forum.

    Maybe I need Pete Cash to contribute for the alt right, hey?

    But great contribution from you as always. Forever insightful.

    A seven minute joke segment from a comedian that includes a diatribe about how Google has changed an emoji is "real politics".

    Have you seen any of Hannah Gadsby Netflix special, now there's some so-called comedy that would be perfect for some commentary of this type. I'd rather Bileduct explain his daily routine inn real-time over the space of a year, then be subjected to even one now second of that funeral dirge.

    I think everything at heart is identity politics but there is a concerning amount of weird liberalism in the left that pays not enough attention to class issues. (Also id pol though by definition)

    And the working class across the developed world has been alienated

    No doubt.

    The "white people have it so hard these days" response seems a little disingenuous though. And the fact that the left have allowed the right to make this out as the representing all left wing politics

    Bit like the "true lefties" that hate the Australian government "giving money to blacks".
