Someone posted this on a comment about virgin trains left/right hypocrisy-off. Its true isnt it tbf. All of us here are guilty as fuck too!


Speak for yourself.

I get blocked by about 100 Tory supporters a month on social media for ripping their lies to pieces. I get kicked off Tory sites because they love freedom of speech(lies) and hate anyone bursting their bubble. I don't bother with Labour sites.

What is hypocritical about Labour's position on the Virgin Trains bailout?

As he expressed it the tactic was for 'cyber-activists' to flood forums under multiple guises not openly supporting the BNP but attacking the positions of the establishment parties and 'always drawing the discussion onto ground where the BNP's policies could be clearly put without identifying the party itself'


Lol. Gosh. Nice ...er facts :gigglesnshit:

The quality of the sites is not the issue, it is the clandestine organizations that they front as the various investigations by legitimate commentators reveal.

Joker sites such as Guido can be said to be more dangerous to the political fabric than Breitbart because they influence the impressionable in more easily digestible bites. The jokers here are evidence of that.


Guido has too many long words for the average impressionable idiot, I view it more as slightly cerebral right wing satire. Shit satire but satire nonetheless.


Such sites are not intended for or taken seriously by the intelligentsia, satire is simply a front for their use as propaganda hubs for alt-right soldiers. If this was not the case why are they linked to so frequently on discussion boards like this but without follow-up debate?


From memory (well, slightly more than that) this phenomenon began in America during the George W election. Investigations showed that thousands of so-called independent articles and opinion in fact traced back to an organization with links to the Ayn Rand Institute who were scripting templates for far right mainly young and impressionable operatives. They too posed as "ordinary posters just having fun". Decades later we have Trump and Brexit. :roll:

You will find a number of 'Social Media' or similar discussions will use polar opposites to 'agree' an unproven premise.

In the USA it was that Hilary Clinton was not a legitimate contender, in fact you can still see shades of that in some of the coverage of Trump that never seems to stay focused on Trump, when the Alt-Right and Islamic terrorist sympathisers discuss Israel they all agree that Israel is the only voice of the Jewish people and all Jews support Israel and it's actions.

In the Brexit debate it was that vote was a vote on David Cameron's political survival and not a vote that might affect the British place in the world for the next century and in many debates it ends up being Jeremy Corbyn's shoes.

It worked for those who posted them during the referendum and the US election on social media, I like to think that this place is slightly more sophisticated than FB or Twitter.

Because nobody clicks on them because they know what they are.
