Because in the 21st C. a culture has been created of giving rewards to all participants, not just the winners, and the outcome of democratic decisions doesn't work that way.

 

Those of us with right wing leanings suffered in silence 13 years of left wing government in the UK between 1997 - 2010, as did the Yanks with two terms of Obama between 2009 - 2017. Yet the minute the majority of voters both sides of the briney get tired of lefty shenanigans and put in more right wing administrations, you get the snowflakes bawling the house down on the web and in the streets in between greetin in to their bowls of bloody green organic muesli........

 

Whoever dreamed up the theory and psychology of 'entitlement' and god knows how much else psychobabble bull that's been being poured down folk's necks these last 20 years needs lined up and shot, before the entire human population turns in to snowflakes throwing toys out of their pram at every slightest thing where they don't get exactly what they wanted......and to hell with the folk who wanted something completely different.

 

We'll respect democracy and a democratic vote.......*if* you vote for who we tell you to vote for, seems to be the left's and snowflake's take on democracy........ The rest of us call that Communism, not democracy.

​In his tirade against Boris Johnson entitled ''election result a disaster for country and community alike '' Neil appears to accuse  Boris Johnson of being a bigot , racist , homophobic , islamophoblic  ,misogynistic and an elitist basically all the usual left wing slurs they throw at their opponents . Presumably he thinks we would all be much better off under Corbyn and his bunch of comrades . Incidentally all the same accusations were thrown at Trump and the US economy is booming with 50 year old record low unemployment and no new wars

Completely agree, had Jeremy Corbyn been elected PM that would have been an unmitigated financial disaster for the country. A very disrespectful and biased piece to read.

I dont think they are angry at other races i think its the hypocritical white people who always accuse other white people of racism

 

racist , homophobic , islamophoblic?

 

why do we hear these words in every single political debate?

 

The left are going to cry wolf about racism until the sheer stupidity of the left and they way the handle things causes it to become a self fulfilling prophecy!

 

Reminds me of the Ferguson effect

 

 

Ferguson effect is the idea that increased distrust of police following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has led to an increased crime rate it suggested is that police have less vigorous enforcement in situations that they feel might lead to backlash

 

It would be plausible that authorities may be more lax when it comes to more controversial perpetrators,

Especially in Labour controlled areas

Take the Rotherham scandal and cases like it for example

 

fear that the perpetrators' ethnicity would trigger allegations of racism and damage community relations; the Labour council's reluctance to challenge a Labour-voting ethnic minority; lack of a child-centred focus; a desire to protect the town's reputation; and lack of training and resources

 

What would happen If the ethnicity of the victims and perpetrators was NOT taken into account?

Simple: they wouldn't have ignored or enabled it!

 

Most leftists have the bigotry of Low expectations and don't hold other nationalities to the same standards

Whistle blowers acted in defense of victims but they were vilified as bigots who wanted to persecute a religious group

Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity.’

It would seem Labour has a particular reputation

This is a problem with authorities why are "controversial perpetrators" controversial.

 

Identity politics is functionally similar to immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS)

 

Why AIDS?

 

Most people who die of AIDS do not die from the virus itself. They die from opportunistic infections

 

the human traffickers who enslaved victims into prostitution are like an "opportunistic infection"

They would not have been able to do what they did on the scale they did if it weren't for people so afraid to be accused of being racist

 

if Rotherham did not have AIDS the authorities would have broken up these groups as soon as they became aware of them

 

the cause of the problem is NOT immigrant groups and diaspora but instead local authorities who have chosen to selectively enforce the law.

 

Labour is the party of identity politics and i want to be absolutely clear i think

Baizuo = AIDS ( People who enabled evil individuals to avoid offending a group of people most of whom would never even think about doing something so despicable)

opportunistic infection = People who are bad not because of their race but because of the things they did

I would love to have been provided with a link to Neil Riddel's letter, but I wasn't. The queen will be on the telly on Christmas day though, and that will be better than complaints with no justification at all, not that there's any justification to maintain the Greco-Germanic ones either.

Great post.

A worthy topic.

My views may differ though.

Mostly based on actual facts.

On the other hand, you may have a point.

Not sure.

 

We'll see.

Any time now.

Next year for sure.

Kick off Brexit!

Easily done.

Return to the good old days of the Empire.

Sad!

^Thank you, Middlin. Personally, if I was puting forward an argument, I would put forward what I was making claims about. Of course, that's just me :cool:

The recent letter by Neil Riddel reveals him to be a sore loser why can't people just accept the result of democratic elections and referendums without having  tantrums because they don't like the result .

Neil Riddell's letter is a fine example of democracy in action, Boris may have won the election but that doesn't mean his opponents should down tools and remain silent.

There is evidence to support all of those accusations against Boris Johnson. 

 

And yes, the same accusations were levelled against Trump, and again there is abundant evidence to back them up.

 

Trump is fond of saying the US economy is the strongest it's ever been, but that is factually inaccurate. The US economy is quite strong at the moment, but there have been many periods is recent history when the US economy was in much better shape, and most positive trends under Trump are largely the result of policies put in place during the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis that pre-dated his administration. 

 

Trump's fondness for protectionist and populist economic policies, and trade wars, are generally considered to have had a negative impact on the economy.

I'll remind you of that when I kick off the next time the left wins an election.

 

Personally I think losers should shut up, accept a democratic decision, and work quietly behind the scenes towards winning next time, rather than throwing tantrums, but that's just me.

^ an interesting take on democracy - if you're not a 'winner', then shut up? And if you do dare express an opinion contrary to 'the winners' then it's a tantrum?

 

Surely part of a healthy democracy is to have a forthright opposition, debate and plurality of viewpoints?

^ There's a whole ocean of difference between opposition and outright denial and defiance, the trouble in recent years is the latter has become confused with the former in the minds of leftists and snowflakes.

 

The kinds of attitudes and scenes which have been displayed by the losing leftist and snowflakes during the last decade or so have been disrespectful to both the winning majority and the sanctity of democracy itself. Furthermore, similar attitudes and scenes have not been perpetrated by those on the right when they lost, or by leftists when they were losers in earlier years, so what makes leftists think its suddenly okay to start behaving in this way?

 

By all means peacefully, politely and respectfully protest and oppose the plans and decisions of a democratically elected body you don't agree with, but caterwauling all over the web, insulting anybody and everybody that doesn't share your own opinion exactly, creating public disorder and refusing to recognise the legitimacy of a democratically elected public body just because not composed of exactly the people you want in it, in totally unaccepatable.

 

Calamity refuses to recognise/accept the legitimacy of Scot's rule in Shetland, and regularly gets hauled up in front of the old Sheriff for allsorts based wholly around that attitude for his trouble. The sooner all these yeehaws going around shouting 'Not my Prez' and 'Not my PM', going out of their way to insult people, and creating havoc get rounded up the same way. the better, as in their own way they're no different in what they're doing than what Calamity is doing.
