« on: June 13, 2020, 12:27:32 am »

Green MP Golriz Ghahraman says statues which memorialise colonial figures should be removed rather than edited to add context.

This is nothing more than "jumping on the bandwagon".  Firstly this freak "MP" is what is called a "list member", meaning NOBODY voted for the silly woman, she is really a parasite foisted on the people with the entire purpose of imposing her weird agenda (and making the people pay for it and keep
her in luxury).

I hope that nobody will take anything she says seriously.  These people live entirely in a fantasy world, one that includes the fact that people actually like them, think they have something of value to add to society and are quite happy to pay for it.

People should really do their homework before going crazy:

I guess the thinking today is that EMOTION is far more important than truth.  As Alexandria Ocasio Cortez famously said:  "people are more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.  I guess that just about sums it all up.

Any comments?

 che cortex is a moron.
Facts and morality aren't the same.   In the che cortex world morally right means the communist manifesto.  Except for her and the inner party of course.
