Piers Morgan is an embarrassment and nobody truly likes him.

Well, let me see, maybe the term is a leftist, no wait, leftist is lefter than liberal, a centrist , nah, those are now Republicans, ahh, don’t even have to watch the clip to know “He’s wrong, and he’s not one of us.”

I know you didn’t have time to watch it, he calls himself a liberal, how dare he. And naturally, like always, you don’t address the content

Point proved #1

Oh no, no one likes him??? That’s the most devastating put down of all, again, not addressing the content.

The degree of anger spewed by the left over things they don’t look into the facts of, think about , or maybe even THINK is on total display in this forum, and is exactly what the right wing nut job Piers Morgan, who no one likes is talking about .

That’s how fascism starts. Here comes the mob, I love it.

Fascism is when you're mean to other people.

This is a pretty dire thing to say when there have been numerous mass shootings this year courtesy of actual, unapologetic fascists - but no, three people telling you that Piers Morgan is a bumbling dipshit is fascism now actually.

You’re giving him more than he deserves. He’s not really capable of handling serious discussion. Just call a moron a moron when he says moronic things.

For example, the minority party would introduce their budget, the other parties would all vote against it which would then bring down the government and a new election is called by the Governor General.

Thanks, again Dave C and anitram.

And duuuuuh on me when i posted this:

So when/if a party becomes a Minority Rule Gov't- it's easier to come apart if things go really downhill?
(I'm not always posting in a quiet library- i'm often posting on a loudish, busy subway platform, which can effect my posting)

So when i said "it's easier to come apart"; what i had in my head was the coalition(s?) that the minority party that won would have to make with other parties ie: the examples you both provided; to form a coalition gov't. (I have listened to international news for a long time so i have some idea of what goes on )

Unfortunately, yes. He's pretty far from my first choice.

So you still don’t know the definition of fascism?

I’m willing to discuss the clip with you, when you’re willing to be honest.

Deal?

Sure I'll bite.

The overall point is not without merit. We have become a society of outrage over everything. We get outraged over the outrage. It's ridiculous. But let's not try and pretend that this was a liberal only issue. As if Republicans never got their panties in a bunch over a comedian or a movie or the violent video games that only seem to cause mass shootings in America even though they exist everywhere?

Liberals don't have a stranglehold on faux outrage.

But here's the issue, and why trying to defend some of the points that Morgan makes in this video has become a non starter for me, even if I agree with a lot of what he's saying in theory.

The right - Trumpism, Fox Newsism, Ailes-ism, whatever - has used this outrage over outrage to justify racism, sexism and homophobia. So it's impossible to actually have any real conversation on the subject - because you end up with some tool posting a scale of acceptable racism as a way or proving that he isn't a racist.

Excusing discrimination under the guise of religious freedom or "American values" is horse shit.

That's not "we're not allowed an idea or we'll be ostracized from society."

That's "you're a fucking bigot."

Conservatives only get outraged about things that really matter - the annual kvetching over the design of the Starbucks holiday (pardon me, CHRISTMAS) cups, the unAmerican nature of "French" fries, the nature of Nike's advertising campaigns and throwing Keurig machines off balconies in protest of the company being mean to Sean Hannity.
