2. Have you read the comments to their articles?? I wouldn't use "smart" to describe a lot of them.

BTW, I read the mail for entertainment, the guardian to warm up, and come here for reasoned debate. ??

Nasty how though? Why not engage with them as a grown up, rather than getting all antifa.

The antifa is what the ultra right wing see when they look in the mirror - the ultra left wing who believe anyone who disagrees with them is by default a Nazi and deserves 'nastiness'.

You can search for more info on the Antifa movement all by yourself smile

So because I argued against a bunch of right wing bigots, I MUST be a left wing bigot?

You said you were banned for being nasty.

Why did you feel the need to be nasty? Why not keep yourself in check whilst you argue with them.

The Guardian isn't biased. It has some ridiculous opinion pieces but it's general reporting is excellent and rigorous.
Their journalism has come out with plenty of important stuff over the years that possibly wouldn't have otherwise emerged. The floppy-haired guilt tripping whining on the opinion side of things has made me dislike the Guardian even more than the DM and that's truly saying something.

If I were running it I'd shape it into a pure conveyor of inconvenient truth. Every columnist encouraging me to commit suicide for not being apologetic enough for existing would be told to get a job down a mine somewhere.

Because to engage with them as adults would require them to be adults in the first place.

Anti-fa is a catch all term used by the far right to demonise anyone they don't like. Usually an indication that the user doesn't inhabit reality.

1. It's more erudite. If you want to improve your mastery of the English language, you can do a lot worse than read the Guardian.
2. Because of 1, they cant be as blatant as the DM, let alone the Daily Express with their lies as the readership are smart enough to spot obvious lies.
1. Not sure about that, it was called the Grauniad for a reason.

2. Have you read the comments to their articles?? I wouldn't use "smart" to describe a lot of them.

BTW, I read the mail for entertainment, the guardian to warm up, and come here for reasoned debate. ??
1. An ill founded reputation for typos mainly used by the satirical news magazine, Private Eye.

2. I avoid the comments section on any news site. No matter who it is, it's an unregulated, unmoderated mess... hence attracts the worst commentators. When it comes to quality, journalism matters, the comments section doesn't.

Well I for one won't have anything bad said against the Daily Mail.
When the lovely Tracy Cox produces the following informative article for both males and females then I will keep reading.

This was discussed on the Rogan podcast recently, a Vietnamese-American journalist was battered by the Antifa recently https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cI2EHMy1lgs

Didn't sound like a catch term to me.

Even the BBC acknowledge that they are extreme: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/X56rQkDg...


Anyway we are off topic. How bad the Mail is, or isn't, is the question isn't it? Not some nutter on here who they banned and has a gripe hehe

If you need that explained to you, you shouldn't join any political discussions.

Of course it doesn't sound like a catch all term to you... You're using it to demonise anyone you disagree with.

Anti-fa is short for "anti fascists" and it a catch all term formerly used to describe anyone opposed to fascism. It is not a single organisation with a central authority as you have made out. Did you even read the BBC Opinion article you posted.

Congratulations, you've demonstrated that I was quite correct. You don't actually know what the term means and you're just using it as a very bad thought terminating cliche. Also, you don't live in reality.

If you want to talk about willingness to use violence, reference James Fields Jr, Charlottesville, et al. The far right isn't just willing to use violence, it is one of their first resorts as using violence to enforce fascism is a key tenant of fascism..

So who posts out the all-black dress code & face masks then hehe

You seem very passionate about this subject, you know I was just asking that fella if he should have toned down his language so he hadn't got banned.

I'm not getting into what ever happens to be this this chip on your shoulder here. So take care!
