Had to laugh at the hypocrisy in this recent story doing the rounds :woohoo:

People hold the mainstream media to account for street abuse of MP Anna Soubry

On 7 January, pro-EU Conservative MP Anna Soubry faced verbal abuse as she gave TV interviews. Protesters called her a “Nazi”, and later “jostled” her as she sought to re-enter parliament. This happened on the same day that journalists Kay Burley, Dawn Foster and Owen Jones also faced abuse from pro-Brexit agitators.

While the mainstream media generally showed Soubry sympathy, Twitter users quickly pointed out the key role that most right-wing papers have played in fostering the tense and warlike political environment behind the abuse on 7 January.
Media hypocrisy

Soubry and other MPs soon called for police action against the abusive protesters. Meanwhile, vocally pro-Brexit papers like the Telegraph, the Sun, the Mail, and the Express all reported critically on the incident. They called the culprits a “mob” of “pro-Brexit yobs“. But Owen Jones spoke for many on Twitter when he insisted that such criticism was two-faced considering these papers’ past record:

www.thecanary.co/trending/2019/01/08/people-hold-the-mainstream-media-to-account-for-street-abuse-of-mp-anna-soubry/

Gave me a good laugh seeing them cry about being called a fascist nazi its diferent when its someone whose pro establishment eh the police spring in to action and facebook ban accounts yet when it happens to pro brexit MP's they say nothing and the police do nothing.
Nigel Farage has been called a raciest Nazi fascist more times than I can remember he's even been assaulted by mobs and nothing gets done about it
now its one of there team and they are saying shit like they are considering passing laws to make it hate speech to prevent us criticising MPs "coz that's not Orwelian" the hypocrisy at play here is so juicy this is there own rhetoric being used against them and they don't like it one bit :evil:
They have no one to blame but themselfs they normalised this kind of language they brought identity politics to mainstream media so don't be surprised when your opponent learns and plays your game.

I disaprove of it tbh honest i think its an iligitimate way to win an argument calling somone a Nazi in order to shut them down and claim victory is the tactics of the far left and i dont think you can use the tools of evil and come out smelling of roses its a hollow victory.

There is a discussion to be had about the remainers wanting to over turn a democratic vote i think it is most certainly a fascist move allowing the state to overpower the peoples democracy is the very definition of fascism in my eyes.

some you tube videos on the subject that highlight the hypocrisy at play here.

The Media is what you want it to be !
I put Various Factions under the Following "Banners" you wall may not agree with me, But it is also a great Debate Argument Starter in the Pub> :)

RIGHT WING: (Gutter Press) Mail; Express; Sun; Star; Telegraph; Times; Observer; BBC; ITV; CH4; CH5; BBC Radio; Police
LEFT WING: Morning Star; Mirror; Guardian; Trade Unions;
FAR LEFT: Antifa; Idiot;
FAR RIGHT; Ukip; Crazy;

So depending What you Read, View, Listen To, you will come under one of the above,
As for the much Misused term "Nazi" that went out During the Nuremberg Trials way back in the 1940s,
About time Antifa got up to date, stopped being parrots and came up with something new.

And Me ?:
I Watch RT-NEWS (Russian Bias); PRESS-TV (Iran Anti-West Bias); Read The Morning Star; & The Beano :evil:

I do agree with alot of what they have to say but not everything, And my support of there cause dosn't make me blind to the mistakes they make or stop me from being critical about the bad stuff they do.
Like in this case James Goddard and his followers calling Anna Soubry a nazi when clearly she inst, as I said this is far left rhetoric and I don't agree with the use of it because its one of the things that disgust me about the far left and there over use of this type of rhetoric so much so that the word has lost all meaning to most people who throw it around.
Thanks to this incident the authoritarians are using it as an opportunity to justify an attack on freedom of speech to further restrict our liberty and push more hate speech laws on us restricting our freedom of speech and protecting themselfs for criticism.
Think of the implications of such a law that prevents us from calling out any potential future fascist governments, you don't think that's like something straight outa an orwelian dystopian future ?

We are in such a mess.

Infantile labellling and polarizing that only serves to make Soubry more credible by virtue of comparison.

If we lose another aspect of free speech as a result then we know who to thank.

I think these days you'll find the Guardian is a right-wing paper masquerading as left-wing... :blink:

Yup the far left are to blame they brought political discussion down in to the gutter with this rhetoric in the first place :angry:

And the funny thing is it l be the remainers and the far left who are impacted the most because of this because they are the ones who go around calling everyone a Nazi on a daily basis it l be there freedom of speech that's impacted the most not us pro leave supporters because apart from this one incident its generally not something they do.
You'd think I would be happy to hear that the far left loon's are being gaged if they do manage to pass a law preventing people calling them Nazi/fascists but I am a staunch free speech advocate and understand that its an important ideal to uphold it isn't just there free speech that's under attacks its everyone's and by fighting for there freedom of speech I strengthen my own rights.
And I can see a real inherent danger in a law that empowers the state to silence criticism of this nature its exactly the kind of thing you would see in a real fascistic government who wants to criminalise there opposition it's tyrannical behaviour we would expect to see from a country like north Korea.

It's so ironic public accuse MP of being a fascist for trying to overturn a democratic vote and there reaction is to attack freedom of speech :blink: cant imagine why people are calling them fascists.

Welcome to 2019 ladies and gentlemen enjoy the ride coz there's no getting off :unsure:
