    Morgan, who describes himself as liberal, said the reason why populism is on the rise is because "liberals have become unbearable."
    "But liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it's a massive problem," he said. "What's the point in calling yourself a liberal if you don't allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture that we now operate in — the victimhood culture, the 'everyone has to think a certain way, behave a certain way' ... it's all completely skewed to an environment where everyone's offended by everything, and no one's allowed to say a joke."

      Tell me about out. PC culture celebrates diversity, but only if everyone thinks alike. It's like they want a rainbow clone.

      Don't even get me started on their loss of the ability to laugh at life.

      In my opinion, I think Morgan's sentiments are right on point, and he has simply given a solid reason that helps explain the "great devide".

    I assume he is talking about British liberals since you don't cotton to foreigners buttin' their snooty noses into U.S. affairs

      Is there a discernable difference between a UK liberal and an American one?

        I dunno. But I assume Mike wouldnt stick his nose into UK politics. That would be hypocritical.

          Well, doesn't Pierce have a show on CNN? It isn't as if he used satellite TV to watch a Brit show.

            I dunno. I just know Piers is not a U.S. citizen. Why would Mike care what he thinks about liberals in the U.S. when Mike has made it crystal clear what he thinks of non-citizens sticking their noses into U.S. busibess. Conversely, if Piers is referring to British liberals, why does Mike care? Wouldn't that be hypocritical?

            Just wondering.

              I doubt you'll find a person alive who isn't willing to share a statement that supports their view no matter the source.

              Unless it is now your contention that a conservative isn't going to fall into a trap designed by human nature.

                Huh?

                I made what I consider to be reasonable assumptions based on Mike's previous assertions.

                I guess Mike will come along eventually and clear this right up.

                  PP,

                  I believe Piers Morgan is correct for a number of reasons, but, I don't want to disappoint you.

                  I will clear things up a bit.

                  My problems is not with people from other countries coming to this forum and expressing their views.  My problem comes when American citizens disagree with them and the person from another country believes they can call Americans stupid and/or ignorant because they don't believe the same way as the person from another country.

                  So, it's not their opinion, it's the total inability to realize that you don't go into someone else's house and tell them they are stupid/ignorant because they don't run their house like you, the foreigner, thinks they should.

                  I would never go on a forum of a foreign country and tell those citizens they are stupid/ignorant because they don't see things as I see them.

                  I welcome all foreign opinions, but maybe a little respect that you are not from our country and our opinions are not stupid/ignorant because we disagree with you. I would do the same if I were on a forum of another country.

                  So, Piers Morgan is spot on about what has happened to American liberalism.  Antifa, people being attacked because they wear a hat, conservatives being hounded out of restaurants, etc.

                  Liberalism used to be a belief of accepting all view points.  NOW, it has become a fascist organization where if they disagree with your viewpoint, they feel justified in physically attacking you.  That is the behavior of fascists. This is how they took over Russia, etc. 

                  American liberalism no longer stands for what it did a decade ago.  It has evolved into dedicated fascists organization using the label of liberalism to justify their evil deeds.

                  If you don't believe me, just listen to Piers Morgan.  He is telling the truth.

                    I believe the change occurred more than a decade ago, it was just covered up well, and not as extreme.

                    "American Liberalism" or the Democratic Party or Progressives are more or less bundled into the same group along with all those who feel disenfranchised or spiteful towards the nation.

                    The Dems used to stand for American Workers, Unions, Equal Opportunity for Americans.

                    They sold out to the International Corporations, Foreign interests, and NWO Globalism long ago.  NAFTA was passed during the Clinton Administration, the Glass Steagall Repeal happened during the Clinton Administration, China's 'favored nation status' began long before that.

                    These were all betrayals to the American people, they put outside interests ahead of the best interests of America's future and prosperity, and some 30 years later the bill is coming due, the cost of that corruption will likely be the demise of national sovereignty (our independence and freedoms) in favor of International law and control.

                    Maybe one world united together, without borders, without war, will be a great thing... I just don't think it will be quite so utopian, rather more like 1927's Metropolis meets George Orwell's 1984.
