The right wing over the last 40 years has been focussed on reducing the role of government in ReaLife especially the aspects of it that reduce social inequality, their attitudes during the pandemic are merely another aspect of their Dadaist brand of Libertarianism. Meanwhile many of these "small government" advocates are amongst the biggest beneficiaries of state handouts through cronyism, tax avoidance, etc.

 

I would suggest that's not quite correct. It has reduced the role of the state in directly supporting citizens. But it has not reduced the role of the government in decision making and controlling social and economic behavior.  For example, quantitative easing is basically subsidizing the rich to the tune of billions. 

 

Just read your full post yes I think we're agreeing after all.🤣

It's "hear, hear" because you want to listen to what she has to say not have come round for tea.

Oh. and btw I disagree and say we should be teaching about the implication of our colonial past and it's affect on society today - because that's really what history is about.

I told my 12 year old daughter that slavery has been on the go for thousands of years and perpetrated by many.

I told her she is 100% not to blame and should have no guilt about it whatsoever. Me also.

The only privilege she has is me being her dad.

Did she then educate you on the points you are completely misunderstanding regarding BLM? 12 year old seems a comfortable age for most people to understand this.

Great, if only you could do us one better and never contribute to a Scottish football fan forum again.

Even the U.S. State Dept. acknowledges that the most dangerous variety of terrorism the U.S. is facing today is from White Supremacists who have killed 9 times as many people as Muslim Terrorists in the 4 years between 2015 & 2019 - pity the POTUS doesn't want to accept this.

BLM is a political movement, admittedly left of centre, but it is not a racist (just look at the colour composition of BLM & the EDL next time they're on the streets). fascist (a term that as I have pointed out elsewhere you don't understand!) or terrorist organization (go on and tell me what terrorist atrocities they have committed?) and even in the UK it is noticeably less aggressive than the right-wing street movements that oppose it like the EDL.

You consistently refuse to acknowledge the wider context that BLM condemns, inequality in terms of economic opportunities, police harassment & higher death rates during the current pandemic.

J'accuse shull - just another gammon fantasist!
