Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

You have an amazing ability to take general comments and observations and uncharitably construe them as all manner of psychoanalysis, smears, bullying, unfriendliness, name calling and personalized comments. How about you just ease up and stop trying so hard to be perpetually offended? Be cool. Rig...

Greetings Cittasanto, Are you suggesting it's.... "fake news"? :quote: Metta, Paul. :) 😂 Yes it is a falsely attributed quote. It was erroneously attributed. It was from chownah.

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

... Frankly, I think the reason some people find this forum's deliberately even-handed treatment so confronting, is that they've become accustomed to surrounding themselves (either through their choice of media, or social circles) with views that align so closely to their own, that when they are ex...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

I see lots of political-contentious topics being created by a user by the name of L.N. :tongue: False. I have created topics regarding Right Speech in the Sila section.

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW? L.N. I think you maybe confusing the views of the majority of the participants with those of the Admin/Mod team, but therein lies your answer. Some people perceive _anyone_ in some position of power as authoritarian/right-wing. Good point.

Tell me why George Soros ( who has been outspoken against the War on Terror :roll: ) and seven other Jewish donors (from the top ten) would want to finance a war-maker & supporter of the War on Terror such as Hillary Clinton & Obama? Also, why would an unrepentant Nazi collaborator such as George S...
