    Ole Piers spitting truth about the takeover over the democratic party by Identitarian/PC/social justice/intersectional/critical race theory crowd a.k.a the far left. People are sick of it and it has to go!

    For those passing through: Straight white guys mad/sad at how unfair everything is for them, continue to use terms such as the one coined by a gay man's satire criticizing radicalized men due to fragile masculinity (snowflake).

    The guy is also staunchly anti-gun.

    Seems awfully hyperbolic. Both sides are ultimately self defeating. I remember the "Alt Right" whined incessantly like spoilt children about Captain Marvel when it came out. I'm largely indifferent to the movie myself, but I mean no one in the real world cared about what any political commentator had to say. It was just a superhero movie for little girls. Oh the humanity! :shrug:
    And then there was some stupidity from the "Anti SJWs" over the reboot of She Ra for some reason. Something about her not being feminine enough, despite the character being like 12 in that canon.
    And the less said about the Star Wars fandom online the better. Just a never ending cat and dog fight. *shudders*
    You want to talk triggered? Look at the Alt Right and Anti SJWs whine whenever something doesn't go their way.
    And no, I'm not forgetting about the left. I remember the "radical left" on BookTwitter tried shutting down Carve the Mark because of a misinterpreted rumor of it being racist a while ago. I remember when a prominent reader and "BookTuber" was dragged online for a remark about #fakereadergirls (admittedly his remark was a little tone deaf) but the mob response was pretty appalling. No discourse, no trying to find common ground. Just dragged him. I looked into his comment and took issue with it, sure. But I found a new booktuber to follow, so I guess I should thank the "drama.'

    I swear politics (specifically American politics) just ruins hobbies for everyone, no matter which side you choose. It has even affected my beloved online reader circles, where politics only arose if the book had politics in it. Now the SJW vs Anti SJW is seeping into the reader community. Is nothing sacred?!

    This is how stupid groups are made.

    They think they're special , but then ends up being as moronic as any other.

    The cycle of life.

    Special snowflake. The term was coined by Chuck Palahniuk in the book Fight Club (which is different than the movie.) Specifically it was used by a terrorist who radicalized insecure men and breeds loyalty from their societal resentment.

    I actually didn't realize that - and I've read the book!

    As for the video: wow! What a meeting of the minds!*

    In the UK Pierced Organ is treated as a sexist, hypocritical numpty.

    The irony is that, when he still had his show that aired over here, he was considered an "extreme liberal" by U.S. conservatives due to his staunch anti-gun stance.

    It says something about the different politics of the US and Europe; the Democrats are to the right of much of our Tory party - not all, I hasten to add

    Now that's just not fair.

    Most of us thankfully forgot he ever existed.

    Yeup I know. I criticized his anti-gun stance a few years ago. I love the group think sheeple mentality you have though. Expecting everyone to agree with someone 100% or not at all. Lrn2critically think bra!

    Such a nonsensical reply. These issues don't affect just 1 type of person. They effect all. If you think they only effect straight white guys then you need to check your privelege.

    Funny, aren't you part of the crowd that that dismisses anyone who doesn't fully accept their narrative as "clown world NPCs"?

    As usual your understanding of the world is completely upside down and backwards.

    You just explained the antithesis of clown world whilst proving its concept.

    Piers works at Fox now I believe. Beware people who say one thing and flip to something else based on where they work

    Piers is your spiritual adviser now? Why should anyone care what Piers has to say? Because he worked at CNN?

    Where he works or doesn't work is irrelevant.

    He is speaking the truth on how identity politics is tainting and ruining everything it touches.
