    I'd say that the British people at large very much love social democratic economic measures over free market economics; they just do not vote that way because other things take precedence. A posh accent and the "right" education and background triggering their inherent classism is more important than actual beliefs.

    Lol. Imagine thinking that UK is conservative when all their parties are tending towards Leftwing radicalism. Only Sweden is anywhere near UK in Leftwing rhetoric.

    Yeah, let's bash a critically-acclaimed author who wrote one of the most popular, influential and inspiring book of all time just because some Twitter tryhards took her quotes out of context and intentionally smeared her.

    Pop culture references to Harry Potter aren't actually "influence"

    Whoa, that's a pretty hot take for this website which leans towards radical leftism. Expect to be assaulted in the following minutes.

    Obviously, in the new conservative age, we can’t criticize writing. Radical left for ya...

    I have a compilation of Rowling's "problematic tweets" vs. the abuse she received. People are free to assault me however much they wish to but sending rape and death threats to a person who has done so much good for the world over a couple of misunderstood tweets is inexcusable

    Its not excusable... but, you have a MAGA avatar... What did Robert Deniro do, to deserve a bomb being sent to his house, on behalf of Trump? None of us have avatars attacking JK...

    Curious why you think writing a successful book absolves someone from criticism when they decide to be a TERF, lol.
    "Multiculturalism has failed!" angrily types a person of European descent living in the Americas in a Germanic language using Roman characters on a device coded with Arabic numerals before leaving in a huff to go watch cartoons made in Japan.

    MAGA has nothing to do with Trump. MAGA is a cultural movement to make America great again. It does not belong to Trump or any of his cronies.

    She did not decide to be a TERF. Angry twitter hatemob with nothing better to do grasped at straws to make it seems like she was a TERF.

    It does belong to Trump... it’s is not a cultural movement, it’s simply a Trump slogan.

    I just want to point out... we are responding to someone, who claims MAGA, has nothing to do with Trump. Let this disconnect with reality sink in... breath the sweet smell of bowing to a billionaire.

    When did you become a defender of the rich? Does their skin peel if they are criticized? What happens to conservatives when they are criticized, do they melt?

    Just to point out the dishonesty that all conservatives depend on:

    "An angry twitter hatemob" didn't make her like transphobic tweets which compare trans people to "blackface actors", or misrepresent Maya Forstater's trying to force her employer to keep her contract in perpetuity despite creating a hostile work environment as "her being fired for stating sex is real", or writing an entire novel which is basically a love letter to transphobic films like Dressed to Kill. (Under a male pen name, no less. Good job not erasing women Joanne!)

    Nor did it make her pen a lengthy "defense" of her actions which basically boils down to...



    Which also ties into the UK's increasingly puritanical attitudes towards its media, hence the ban on facesitting.

    And just for future reference, my avatar is not a MAGA avatar. My avatar is Floch Forster from Attack on Titan who is often made fun of in the fandom for holding Trump-like views and having a Trump-like hairdo. It's meant to be taken ironically, not literally.

    Yeah, because when you complain about the left, or judging by the fact you failed to bring up Boris Johnson when replying to a conservative claiming all Brit government is liberal... it helps point to your avatar, to show where this bullshit is coming from.

    For example... what does RF in TERF, stand for?

    Your avatar... /rimshot

    You do believe that women get paid a lot less than men for the same job? Is that conservative in the UK? Let’s go down the line of radical feminism and see what you support about. Maybe we just discovered that faminist are conservatives in UK...

    Which is doubly ironic since despite purporting to mock Trump-like views the text and theme of Shingeki no Fascist Apologia is explicitly, you know, fascist apologia.

    Are you fucking kidding me?

    Also your reply is triply ironic because "Shingeki no" means "Attack on" = Attack on Fascist Apologia

    As a conservative, list what issues of radical feminist that you support.
