    Keep looking. The Mod's here are a hinky lot
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Here, today, you can enjoy your free speech. It'll be the liberals that try to quiet your voice.

    In the case of this forum I think "permitted" is a more apt word than "respected".

    Most of the active members here are ardent Trump supporters and proponents of the belief that the election of President Biden represents the literal end of our Republic and the ascendancy of a Nazi-like regime of oppression and possibly even (as one or two members have proposed) the Biblical "end times". If one dissents from that view in any way or points out facts which are inconvenient to their narrative, what results is not "respect" in the sense that an attempt is made to honestly refute those facts or argue in good faith; what you get is something like this:

    https://thepoliticalforums.com/threa...amp-Pendleton\

    Few on the Right are at all interested in fair and respectful discussions any more; most appear to be here simply to back-slap one another and trade "news items" from far fringe Right websites. Also to insult other members and - mostly - to get away with it.

    So if the "free speech" that you were hoping to enjoy here is not in full compliance with the narrative and world view of the forum Right-leaning members who believe that President Biden is an evil Nazi pedophile determined to take all your guns, confiscate your house and bank account and burn down all the churches - good luck with that!

    Thy paintbrush is wide.....
    When an argument cannot be sustained on proven facts, devolve to opinions and anger, that always works.

    So where were you when the "liberals" at this forum, in the media, and in the government were spreading malicious lies about nonexistent "Russian collusion" all day, everyday, for four years straight?

    I was here, Eth...waiting to see and hear the evidence. As it turns out, there certainly was collusion with agents of the Russian government by members of Trump's campaign team, including one of his sons. As for whether Trump himself knew about it - only Trump and a few individuals still loyal to him know for sure, but considering that he made at least two public statements to the effect that he would welcome any help foreign governments were ready to give him in being elected, I think it more than likely that he knew very well what was going on.

    And exactly what does that have to do with the incredibly over-the-top, apocalyptic stupidity currently being posted by some Right-leaning members of this forum? Is a standing "whataboutism" really your best response?
