    I agree that this would be foolish to implement

    I think breitbart, daily caller AND daily mail are the key no no's

    If posting something as evidence don't link to an opinion piece either.

    Other than that it's fair game.

    One of our most time honored traditions in the Politics thread is mocking people's sources. Far be it from me to take that away from everyone.

    Stormwallo says the strangest things.

    You also have to consider part of the reason why the left and right are embracing populism is because their typical parties have ignored them to prostitute themselves to the centre, leaving their base feeling like their issues of economic and social insecurity aren't being heard or managed. And as a result, the stresses they feel are being left to be managed by populists, who marry them to the wrong root causes such as globalisation or migration.
    If this is what's happening now, then how is shutting out the same people here a remedy for our problem? I mean, it's like pouring petrol on a fire because, well, it's liquid, and liquids put fire out!
