‘Populism is rising because liberals are becoming unbearable’

September 17, 2019

 

LIBERAL LOATHING: “it is a kind of fascism – if you don’t lead the life I tell you to I going to ruin your life, I am going to scream abuse at you. I’m going to get you fired from your job. I am going to get you hounded by your family and your friends. I am going to make you the most disgusting human being in the world because of a joke you said ten years ago.” – Piers Morgan on why he thinks modern-day liberalism has destroyed public discourse. Picture by I Dominick.

 

 

A PROMINENT voice in the mainstream media has pulled rank to highlight what he claims how modern-day liberalism is synonymous with tyranny in the way its treats its opponents.

Good Morning Britain presenter, writer and former editor of The Daily Mirror Piers Morgan says that the rise in populism is inexorably tied to the politically correct doctrine that has allowed social media giants and media organisations to demonize anyone who doesn’t conform to their approved speech.

He was speaking to Ben Shapiro on the Ben Shapiro Show, which can be found on the Real Clear Politics site, an organisation that has been accused by some in the liberal-left establishment of being “extremely nationalist” and “white supremacist”.

‘You can’t be liberal and deny other points of view’

Morgan said: “Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a liberal. In my core, I am probably more liberal than not although I fundamentally see myself as a journalist and I like to see both sides and I can argue both. Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it is a massive problem.

“What is the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow someone else to have a different point of view?

“This snowflake culture, this victimhood culture we operate it in, this everyone has to think a certain way or there are 20 different things that are wrong with him, I just think it is all completely eschewed to an environment where everyone is offended by everything.”

‘Offences from the past could haunt the stars’

Morgan says any joke that a potential host for the Oscars, a nominee or introductory star participating may not materialize due to what they may or may have not said in the past in case could come back to haunt them if someone digs something up in the past to “take offence” as people are fundamentally “flawed” as humans and prone to making mistakes.

He said: “No one can win awards anymore because there will be no platform before they get onto the podium, so no hosts, no stars, so no one can make any movies because we’are all flawed, so no actors so where are we?

“The liberals get what they want which is a humourless void where nothing happens, where no one dare do anything or laugh at anything or behave in any way that doesn’t suit their rigid way of leading a life. Well, no thanks.

‘Being offended by everything is all nonsense BTW’

Morgan says people across have switched towards nationalism because they are tired of actors, celebrities, politicians or similar “woke” individuals setting moral guidance on everyone below them on what they can or cannot say or think.

“People are fed up with the PC Culture, with snowflakery, and they’re fed up with everyone being offended with everything and they are gravitating to forceful personalities who say this is all nonsense – which by the way it is in most cases.

‘Why are we liberals getting it so horribly wrong’

“Why are we surprised? I’m not surprised. It doesn’t mean to say I agree with a lot of it but I understand why the liberals – my side of you like – are getting it so horribly wrong.

“They just want to tell people not just how to live their lives but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to – it is a kind of fascism – if you don’t lead the life I tell you to I am going to ruin your life, I am going to scream abuse at you.

‘Godzilla is our guy and he is going to help us’

“I’m going to get you fired from your job. I am going to get you hounded by your family and your friends. I am going to make you the most disgusting human being in the world because of a joke you said ten years ago.

“It takes forceful personalities to rise above it and Donald Trump has like Godzilla and he said OK, do you want a fight? I’m here and guess what millions of people in Middle America said ‘that’s our guy’. He’s the one is going who is going to help us, and the same is happening across Europe. “

I actually like him now. I never used to. In fact I used to detest him.

But I think he’s grown up a lot recently and he does have an innate sense of decency which most UK broadcasters don’t.
