It's strange how this was across all the news channels yesterday, and all it involved was a few of them stepping away from their screens for 10 minutes to have a bit of a huddle and then going back to work.

That's because you're clueless.
It's the end of the world as we know it...and I feel fine.

The problem is that Westerners have had the scales shifted so much that what is now regarded as 'dangerous thought' was considered normal even a few of years back. That is due to the lunatic left, not the right.
In case you hadnt noticed they are propping up the UK government and in theory are in govt in NI.

This.
Although most normal people you speak to can see through the hysterics of the noisy minority.
Social media and lazy journalists who cover this shit are to blame.
Social media/the net is hopeless for debates as well. Any small disagreement gets blown way out.

Talk to someone in real life who is on a different end of the political spectrum, and things are usually pretty civil as you compromise in real time and find common ground.

A good question considering the sheer shit being posted in this thread.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-02/ ... n/10458178
Thousands of Google employees across the world have walked off the job in protest at the internet giant's lenient treatment of executives accused of sexual misconduct.

Employees were seen staging walkouts at offices including New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Singapore, Toronto, London, Zurich and Dublin.

The Google protest, billed "Walkout For Real Change", is unfolding a week after a New York Times (NYT) story detailed allegations of sexual misconduct against the creator of its Android software, Andy Rubin.

The report said Mr Rubin received a $US90 million severance package in 2014, even though Google concluded that sexual misconduct allegations against him were credible.

Credible accusations
New Neo | 12/3/2017 - 3:30pm
The word “credible” keeps coming up in sexual harassment discussions, but what does it really mean?

n the wake of the recent spate of sexual offense allegations, particularly against politicians such as Roy Moore, “credible” and “credibly” have become the latest buzzwords.

Well it’s simple really. ABC, amongst other media outlets and various woke collections of morons, have decided that since there’s an allegation then he’s basically guilty. This snowballed into mass demonstrations of virtue signalling as people raced to be the first to organise mob justice, internet character assassination, one in the eye for the patriarchy, oh and and the demise of due process.

Ah, there are multiple accusers. Anyway, a woman who did accuse him of sexual assault has just admitted that she made it up. I don't think it's the woman who was the principal accuser however.

We all know an allegation made 40 years after an alleged incident is as good as a jury conviction to an internet lynch mob

Correct. There is a severe "detached from reality" component in both camps.
Incorrect. It's the Left wing SJWs characterizing everyone to their right as racist, fascist bigots that are the dangerous virtue-signalling loons. It's they who reaffirm speakers, who attack trump supporters with bike locks, who regularly disrupt meetings where 'problematic ' opinions may be aired. Conservatives want to win the debate; the Left wants there to be no debate.

I think that's a good point. Is there any American or British universities that ban speakers for being too left wing?

Haven't finished the whole thing yet, but most of that doesn't read as the left eating itself to me.
More that the ethos that helped Google prosper has turned toxic with internal divisions on emotive topics, and that the right/conservative end of the general internet population are willing to play extremely dirty.

Well, we lot don’t expect your bunch to be breathing much longer, so it’s easy ;)

But these little turd millennials need a solid kick.

Before you check out for good though Enz, what’s this “yourbrother” login you approved. It’s creepy, and possibly a recently banned poster (of kiwi or even Irish descent).

Shame your generation did solve this battle when you had a chance. Like the environment, global debt, etc. I guess you see it as the job of your children to sort out.

I’m not I’m any way an ageist, but old people make me sick. I could never hire one.

It is. Didn't you not read about their overt pushes for diversity for women coupled with higher ups hot on women they can prey upon? or closeness with the Democrat establishment while being willing to sell out to China? Their don't be evil mantra while fighting for Pentagon defence contracts?

Of course they are that shit type of left leaning virtue signalling organisation, the silicon valley sort, where they'll get rid of someone challenging their diversity directives as flawed while celebrating sexual harassers who make them money, hence Duff Paddy's comment.
