      Anyone who is genuinely unconcerned (as opposed to posturing on here) about the polarisation of politics and the rise of extremist political and quasi-religious ideologies really should be. It's like JDB sang, if you tolerate this..... What I've observed of the post-Brexit and Trump win West is that if you give the perceived green light to bigotry and intolerance and then scratch the surface you'll be amazed by how many people who, if not openly supporting such views, are prepared to shrug their shoulders and say things like "yeah, well, they've had it coming" or "it might be a bit OTT, but at least people are saying enough is enough". I'm pretty certain many of the same things were being thought and said in 1920s and 30s Germany. After all, doesn't the quote go something like "all that it takes for evil to take hold is for good men to do nothing".
      A bit over the top in my opinion. Could Brexit, Trump etc not be a sign that people had enough of previous decisions. The warning signs were there to see, unfortunately no notice was taken and the prospect of Brexit and Trump winning was laughable/ignored etc.

      I am worried by all extremists whatever colour, race, political ideology etc.

      But it's interesting that the op wrote racist comments about the royal family the other day.
      Woah woah woah there, interesting take on the nationalist irony you've taken.

      "Surely it's part of the maintenance bill? Let the immigrant inbreds pay for it themselves." If you think I was being racist you've missed the point entirely.

      we are sleep walking into a new modern form of far right politics which has some resemblance to facisum it feels like the normalisation of the abnormal a reintroduction of a far right politics portraying a new acceptable face of the far right to the western world, I am not saying that Trump, Farage or many of the Tories are facists but they do appear to be spouting right wing ideas that upon their coat tails the facists can find a way back into politics and ultimately power.

      All very worrying times
      We haven't been sleep walking but we have been nurturing the climate for this to happen for many years cheers to socialist leftie politics that have pushed people over to the right! Well done!

      Time will tell I guess. I'm not saying that the status quo was ideal, far from it - the Western Neoliberalism was / is a force of socioeconomic evil in itself, and the wars waged in its name the catalyst for the rise of fundamentalist Islam. Change is needed, I was just hoping for a more humane ideology to triumph rather than the very real prospect of several of the major Western powers becoming run by neo facists.

      I see two hands raised and a bunch of people clapping. Personally i'm not triggered by a minuscule amount of people making a dick gesture.
      That's what I thought. Hardly a rally in Nuremberg is it?

      Please note, I am NOT comparing what is going on at the moment to Nazi Germany but an awareness of history is fundamental here.

      You are I assume aware that people had 'had enough' in Germany in 1933 as well. Hitler seemed a reasonable alternative in the 1933 General Election to the 43.91% that voted for him. Within months, the Reichstag had been disbanded. Fascism didn't creep up in Germany, it turned up promising the world and MONTHS later it was too late.

      You mean liberal politics. We haven't had a socialist in charge of this country for nearly 40 years.

      Socialist: A governmental system that advocates community ownership and control of all lands and businesses rather than individual ownership.

      Liberalism: Liberals believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights.

      Personally I find it abhorrent to see one person making that salute, it being representative of a period in history which saw the attempted state sponsored, systematic eradication of an entire group of people.

      It's disgusting to see people doing it.
