    There is a shitload in the UK media that I dont like. I have never suggested it needs to be silenced like you and trump are suggesting .
    You have a president exploring how to curb a free press. Why doesnt he just shoot a few journalists like his boss would do ?

    I've said nothing about silencing the media.

    I challenge you to support your accusation.


    You are shoveling bullshit, just like your lib buddies in the media. Which is why you like them.


    Trump's boss is the American People. Don't you forget it.


    And we don't want him to have them shot. Maybe some pepper spray, and a water cannon.

    Corbyn has expressed his desire to control the media in the U.K. - how come you are only interested in such a proposal when it is (allegedly) made by Trump and in a country you don’t reside in???

    You have repeatedly advocated for the physical abuse of people, including women, when they express views you don’t like.

    You’ve advocated right wing people having their children taken from them and stated that right wing parents should be locked up in zoos.

    You’ve demanded that people who air unpleasant views, views that you dislike, and opinions you consider dishonest, be banned from social media.

    Seriously, just who do you think you are kidding here???

    I didn’t say he shouldn’t comment, I’m asking why he isn’t interested enough to make a thread when the same thing just happened in the U.K. where he resides.
    Of course the question is rhetorical. We all know why he’s interested enough to make a thread about this matter when Trump is involved, but not interested enough to make a thread when Corbyn has just suggested virtually the same thing in his own back yard.
    Get it now?

    The serious proposals for state control of the media are gonna come from the left in America. Like the 30 something, latina Ocasio-Cortez that''s running as full out socialist know-nothing. She's just BANNED the media from her campaign events.

    She has a larger vendetta against the media than Trump. US media has largely become a political Action Committee and should be regulated as such. Because most everything they choose to pound on is a certified CONTRIBUTION to one party or the other.

    Really? Is he burning newspapers and jamming television transmissions? How is he doing this?

    If your answer is "pointing fingers to FAKE news and biased selection of what they cover" -- He's 100% correct. That IS happening..

    Really? That seems very counter productive for an aspiring politician.
