Rolling Descent into Fascism Thread [chat away]

Be consistent with the government’s position but take no actions motivated by politics? Danger, danger, promoting an inherent validity to government views and positioning them as apolitical but simply ‘correct’ and (not in this screen cap but you know its in there) ‘British’. That’s a red flag so big it makes me want to sing the Internationale

This alongside the proposed HE funding cuts in the arts is an attempt to make it a right wing closed shop.

As always look at what they say their opponents do and then they do it. The made up cultural Marxism argument has led directly to this cultural facism.

Culture remains one of the things that Britain is actually good at producing - TV, music, radio, writing, heritage stuff, it’s all stuff other people are interested in. It’s a great source of soft power and tourism. A smart Tory administration would just indulge it, it’s not like any of the limp-wristed libs and rainbow gendered weirdos who create have any real power is it? It should be viewed as a useful release valve for societal frustration more than anything.

But naw they can’t do that because they’re mindlessly cruel people at heart and occasionally they hear criticism from somewhere and they can’t have that. They got everything they ever wanted and it hasn’t made them happy, it hasn’t produced a good society, so there must still be people out there that have to be stomped on.

So what seemed like the edgelord ramblings of a flag-shagging gobshite Tory backbench cunt are now going to be UK law. Great.

This is the fucking crux of everything, not just on this topic but everything to do with ‘boomer angst’ and the general right-wing nightmare. They got everything, and it didn’t make them happy, and some of them made it so their kids also wanted the same everything, or got it, and guess what? Didn’t make them happy either. So, as you said, someone out there must be fucking it up for them - it can’t possibly be that the problem might lie within.

Bullshitters trying to spin this as an ‘amnesty for terrorists.’ Sure guys, how many Brit soldiers ended up in The Maze for what they did? Fucks sakes.

Wow!

This is quite good on the Home Office’s descent into fascism:

I found it a bit soft on case managers and HOPOs, who are almost universally completely callous about the suffering they cause.

If you don’t own property or land you are akin to vermin in these people’s minds. Literally his solution here is ‘give them a bit of property, and if they refuse exterminate them’. They don’t bother disguising it, because basically a lot of people in this country think the same thing.

I didn’t even have my own passport until I was about 11.

Children haven’t been able to travel on their parents’ passports since 2011, I think.

But even so, that’s no guarantee that every pupil will have travelled overseas.
