Douglas Murray, just say it like it is I agree with your viewpoint there is a push to control the masses and people are so easily pushing on politcal correctness etc. Tech companies, google, youtube, amazon, facebook big businesses and corporations are behind all this people control agenda. Make me puke with all this obtuse nonsense in society.

I like listening him. HE MAKES SENSE . He thinks deep but many people not like him. So there are not nice people . I myself fed up with this identity politics and it doe snot do good to anyone.

Douglas Murray interview was a brilliant, brilliant booking. More like him and the channel will become relevant. I’m a PR and would consider high profile people for your show, but Alex Reid, David Icke and several others drag you down. You should delete a few characters you’ve interviewed in the past who are essentially national laughing stocks, and I think you’ll find people will take you seriously more often.

As a patriotic Englishman it saddens me to say this but , “Enjoy the downfall and the fruits of what our ancestors sacrificed for- it won’t last forever..and if western civilisation is ever to return it won’t be in the form that will give us as much freedom and joys that we currently have.

I’m not picking up a rifle in the occurrence of civil war/disturbances in the west.

RIP Western civilisation 1215 to 2030-2060.

i like Douglas’s advice on how we can better respond to issues or concerns about people on social media; act or respond as if the person is in front of you as a way to start humanizing people again!

What he says about the truth is so right on. If you accept a lie as the truth you will live in doubt forever. Thats where the left wing nutjobs fail. They doubt and argue about everything because they have lost their ability to relate to reality.

Everything has to do with race and politics. These issues are not random issues happening today. First of all you have a massive demographic shift in the west, especially in the USA where Whites are going to be a minority in the next decade. That leads to the cultural status quo being challenged by the other ethnic groups. Second of all, all the left wing ideologues which have been allowed to fester in politics, media, law, and other fields, after WW2, have finally birthed their monster. Now it’s no longer about attacking another class…They have succeeded with a genius plan:… Read more »
