This is one of the main reasons the left is flailing about so ineffectually.

I think the use of the word "fuck" is very helpful. It seems to be rampant around here and will make any message easier to swallow. Therefore, fuck on.

Great video, he hit the nail on the head every time.

More and more people are rejecting the left's language police and becoming more popular. Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, Jordan Peterson and Donald Trump are examples. Their popularity will continue to increase. The left have been unsupervised for too long, hence the crazy mess.

"should be allowed"????

I recently typed in another post about another subject the words ***** tonk <----- as you can see and guess, what word was censored, yet the c word should be allowed? Or was that a typo?

Not sure how vulgarity entices or attracts someone to any point they might be trying to make and even if it does attract some, how many are turned off by it? Yes, I know what was once profanity to many people has become common everyday "language" in this day and age, but there remain people that see it as detracting from what someone is otherwise trying to say, rather than enhancing it.

In my short stay here the greatest offenders are those on the left. Seems the use of the F word is very acceptable. You should speak up when you see it here.

So the use of the same by those who find it "offensive" when the "left" use it, have a justification for being offensive too? Isn't that hypocrisy? If it is offensive and everyone is finding justifications to be offensive, what sort of world would they suppose is going to result?


Whatever happened to universal values that all people agree to and all people apply to themselves, no less than they want them to apply to their political opposition?

Yes, let's all stop respecting one another and instead of proportional push back or being sensitive to one another's concerns we walk around wearing jackets like Melania's or have surgery to place our middle fingers in a permanent position that let's people know how we care about their being things like "forgotten working people" or jobs or stagnant wages or pretty much anything anyone cares about. Let's all wear F-bomb T-shirts and justify being terrible and not giving a "%&^%$$#" about anyone or anything else, but ourselves..........

Seems like some are all for, not caring about others...........It looks kind of pathetic when they whine and complain when others don't care about them.

What a wonnerful, wonnerful world (and great America) it will be......No?

Do you have children or grandchildren? Young nieces and nephews? What message are they hearing from the leader of this nation? Is it the one you want them to hear?

never really understood the term "identity politics". So , thanks for starting a thread about it. I've always wanted to have a discussion about this. First question. Is it possible to completely remove "identity" from politic? A political party is an identity. We use identity to designate all the different demographic categories ( race, sex, religion...). We separated the our own Congress according a specific caucus. Here's just a short list:

Congressional Caucus for Middle Market Growth
Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues (originally the Congresswomen's Caucus until 1981)
Congressional Caucus on Bosnia
Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls
Congressional Caucus on California High-Speed Rail
Congressional Caucus on Ethnic and Religious Freedom in Sri Lanka
Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues
Congressional Caucus on Long-Range Strike
Congressional Caucus on Maternity Care
Congressional Caucus on Poland
Congressional Caucus on Public-Private Partnerships
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucuses_of_the_United_States_Congress

As far as the video. It's a guy who appears to be upset about something that happened in London. He makes a few good point. It's true that the books he's referring to would , as a matter of course, contain language that some might find offensive. However, he seems to be generally upset over the idea of diversity.
In fact, he seems a bit inappropriately upset over it. Brits don't typically use that kind of language. It's typically the word "bloody". Not "fucking".
