The problem isn't her, people debate about her. She is not important, media could sit there another puppet. Another example how Thumberg his known all around the world, how is it possible? How she reached UN sailing on a luxury boat and gave an utterly nonsense speech against the very same people sitting there and they applauded her!?The problem to me is the resonance media give to this lunatics to push a very clear agenda: distract, make to discuss and divide people on irrelevant arguments, create moral and social confusion and at the end depress people, because when something FALSE… Read more »

Imagine how insecure you must be to put on that mask that Simons is wearing. Typical boring Narcicist feeding at the trough of attention garnering.

Similarly to Sylvana Simons point, I am sure there are people who identify with Douglas Murray's race; culture; class or sex who will not ever attain his position of privilege either. It is a pity this flawed argument was not skewered. Also, courtesy was much the more appropriate word, used by Douglas. Respect is earnt by one person from another and should not be expected as a right. Where as courtesy is something that anyone, at least in British society, may reasonably expect to be afforded from any other citizen. A classic example from Ms Simons of twisting words and… Read more »

The western world has legislated equal rights into law. Any person can be whatever they want to be, by working hard and.making smart choices. There are crazy people everywhere, unfortunately, they represent the noisy minority and politicians listen to them.

Sorry lady but being constantly triggered and angry isn't a "dominant personality". It just means your a hypocritical arsehole. I think this idiot played every card in the deck in her stand up speech at the start. Instantly made me want to smash her in the ugly face.

She needs to become aware of the FACT that 'Phobe' doesn't mean a "hatred" it means a fear…A FEAR.
Are we now to be regulated in what we are allowed to fear?
PHOBIA is a fear.
Anybody who uses a silly, NON word like WOKE, reveals their awareness of their own inarticulacy and cannot grasp a REAL word like phobia, and so need to schtumm

Notice how when Murray goes to sit down on a very large seat, the other occupant makes a move away from him, in an overt, unnecessary gesture of all of 3 Cm.

I'm so sick of this. What a pussy Douglas Murray is! He "ducks" ideology about race and women. He is EXACTLY what the left wants us all to be: Little cowards with no identity but what the media ordains for us! These "progressives" are the TRUE bigots and racists and whatever other fake terms our jewish overlords have delivered to us.

I know there are probably better places to ask this question, but to all the Dutch who are reading over this, why on earth is the Swarte Piet so aggressively targeted as racism?
Im a quite frequent visitors to the Netherlands and I don't quite get why this is so enraging..

Holland is a white country. Go to a black country if you want blackness represented. Why do blacks and browns live in white countries and then complain that everyone is against them.

I have to respect who others are by changing who i am…? How about you live your life the way you want, i'll live mine the way i want, and if one of us gets offended we just get over it like grown ass adults. I'm not calling a man a woman or vice versa, because that's just not how reality works despite your feelings.

I am Dutch and this woman is crazy. There are perhaps 2,5 neo nazi's in Holland and I doubt she has ever seen them. She calls everybody who disagrees with her a nazi.. so that word is meaningles when she uses it.She is talking about the black pete protestors and of how they needed to be protected from bad people.. Well, she forgets to tell you that she herself walks in demonstrations where people are screaming that somebody should kill one of our politicians Thierry Baudet from the FVD. Maybe I should mention that we have had our share of… Read more »
