Made the mistake of reading a comment chain on a Priti Patel post of her watching an arrest (no idea why this was on my timeline).

Well done priti now send them home if not British citizens and if they are send to jail and when they get released make them work free of charge


Back home they must go


Now sort those dinghys out please !


Well done Prita, now sought the channel illegal's out.


how do you know they are immigrants.


I know they didn't have an INVITATION.


Does anyone else think Priti Patel is a a babe


i would defo stick my willy in her..


What about this, buy a couple of mtb's, and blast the arseholes out of the water. Problem solved. Seemples


JUST WISH THEY WOULD/COULD FIND ALL THE ILLEGALS AND SEND THEM BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM. NO BIRTH CERTIFICATES NO PASSPORTS. OUT GONE AND FORGOTTEN


I was a big fan of

Such vital vital work you do Priti


though :lol:

Also, amazing to see:

Hi all ways ware flat jacket no good if u got hurt. cart a ford to lose u just yet


I assumed this was tongue in cheek until looking at the gentleman's profile.


This is just the tip of the iceberg of the comment chain :fp:

A Friend posted this, this morning

"Who all, other than me, Thinks the media is responsible for promoting Racial Violence in this country"


Nothing particulary wrong with that, however, his last 10 posts are as follows:

Language Barrier Resoponsible for Coronavirus Surge in UK City - Breitbart


UK begins Deporting Criminal Migrants back to their Home Countries


Help Stop Knife crime in London, don't vote for this guy (picutre of Sadiq Khan)


A Picture comparing BLM with ISIS


These 3 Muslim Men from Croydon who raped a young English Girl with learning disabilities, share and expose these scumbags


Just a thought, the term BAME. Who decided on the acronym, it could be construed as black people are better than asian or minorities because the B is first?


These five people broke into the home of an 83 year old lady in Georgia. Because she had no money to give them they beat her mercilessly leaving her with multi.. (Picture of 5 black people)


I got bored so only copied 7, but every day it's this type of post.

He's in his 60's, and a nice guy, but It's taking a lot of self restraint not to challenge him on this. Absolutley zero self awareness.

I see a lot of anti-media posts but there seems to be a big increase in "BLM are the ones creating racial tension!" bullshit at the moment. They are all convinced BLM are a Marxist anarchist group that only promotes violence.

It's depressing to see people I know well and who I like turn into gammon arsewipes.

If you actually care about the person, or those who engage with the posts, I say challenge it (obviously in a respectful, constructive way).

If you don't care about the person or those engaged then strawberry float it, leave it and consider whether or not you need them to be in your friends list.

I am starting to feel a sense of guilt if I simply ignore something posted by someone in my 'social remit' (e.g. say it was a family member or someone I have more than just a passing acquaintance with) as there is a sense of complicity by allowing it to go unchallenged. People you really care about could be hurt by things being posted, seeing people they consider family/close friends aren't stepping in and wondering if perhaps they agree with it too.

Of course, it's just not as straight forward as social interaction used to be, e.g. if you were sat in a group together in real life and someone started spouting gooseberry fool, you'd no doubt feel much more of a sense of responsibility to not less it pass. On Facebook etc it's all within such a larger, almost public, view and no one is actually 'there' in a real sense.

I think if people are posting things on Facebook, they should expect to be challenged on it. They will have the option to remove people from their friends list and to restrict who can actually see what they're posting.

It's somewhat terrifying to see someone I went to school with have a somewhat decent social media humour presence and being posted on here :lol:

It all depends who it is. There are some people who I know will listen and take things onboard. There are others who I know are a lost cause.

It's just sad to see people who used to be decent turn into hate filled arseholes.

I still think it's worth challenging (assuming the 'care' factor is in play) as at least it will show everyone reading it what your opinion is (for better or worse) and maybe make them feel reassured people aren't willing to let gooseberry fool like that slide.

If they are hate-filled arseholes, do you want to be associated with them anyway? I get that it could be hideously awkward, especially with family members, but to be honest I'd be quite proud if I saw a member of my family standing up for what's right by challenging another family member who was spouting hateful gooseberry fool, and I would strongly defend their right to do so, regardless of which hand-wringers also in the family thought it was a bad thing to cause a fuss, or whatever.

I think everyone that knows me is well aware of my views. :lol:

A lot of the people I'm talking about are just thick as gooseberry fool. They have no awareness of anything and will take nothing on board that doesn't agree with the bullshit they've been drip fed by hate groups.

Recently somebody I know posted a status that said "to all of the people sending me racist jokes and images, please stop. I have a mixed raced wife and do not appreciate it!". I don't know who was sending him stuff, but people that do things like that are just beyond help.

I don't know why I keep them on my friends list. Partially nostalgia for people I knew growing up. Partially to see what shite is being spread around. Partially for material for this thread. ;)

I tried to convince my dad that comparatively native British people actually claim more benefits than immigrants do.

I even sent him some facts/figures from the telegraph

His response was something along the line of "I don't need facts" :fp:

I think if it was a family member or close friend I would find it easier to challenge them. The guy I mentioned earlier is someone who I am on pleasant enough terms with and He's a nice guy, but a typical late 60's white male brexit voter.

I have a similiar issue with one of my neighbours. Genuinely a nice guy, and someone who would always help you out if you were in trouble. He's an ex Army Sniper and has some issues and he posts the sort of nonsense you would expect (Lee Rigby posts etc)

Him and his wife are good friends with us, and we all went out and had dinner with him and his family last month for his birthday. He know's my GF is Turkish, but don't think he's quite worked out that she's Muslim.

It's so odd. He loves her to pieces but going by his Facebook feed you would think he would want her deported on the next boat.

Sometimes I think I should challenge him on it, then I think I'm not sure I would ever be able to convince someone like that and just want a simple life. Shame on me maybe.

I work with somebody (White, male, atheist) who is married to a Muslim of Indian heritage. These things happen.

Her family seem to be ok about it. They are turkish and from the European side of istanbul so think they are more open about that sort of thing than they would if they were from the east side.

Turkey's an interesting country, very proudly Muslim but the west is like any other European city with bars and clubs with mosques just down the road.

There are still some things though. I am 40 and the gf is 36 but we have to lie and pretend to the dad that we live in separate houses. (The mum and sister know the truth).

Having a baby before marriage is another big no no for them, whilst over here think it's fairly normal.

Beyond that she complains when I cook bacon yet has also stolen a slice when the mood takes her :lol:
