AIBU to think that this man makes some good points?

Be warned, its very sweary (just in case you are thinking of listening with kids nearby)

I'm not going to click on a link with no context.

He's spot on. I like Hilary and despise trump but he's just put his finger on why she lost.

MrsLyons Sat 12-Nov-16 10:05:34

Sorry Tyne, you're right.

It's an opinion on why Trump won the election.

StrictlyPan Sat 12-Nov-16 10:09:22

Yep, I'd seen this on twitter a couple of days ago and reported around here.
He says "fuck" a few times, but well placed and effectively.

He's had a political channel for a while and makes a lot of sense imo

StrictlyPan Sat 12-Nov-16 10:19:29

it did also provide some perspective to that inadequate Guest Blog yesterday from 'Glosswitch', I think, pointing out it was a victory for the defense of rich white men in the US. Which of course ignored all of the content of this video and the simple economic arguments and proposals that were put fwd by Trump. Both of which made the gender/sex of Clinton utterly irrelevant.

Jonathon Pie is awesome and right more than he's wrong. This rant hits the nail on the head. When offered a choice between 4 more years of shit sandwiches and the unknown those dispossessed by over 30 years of good and not so good jobs being sent overseas I don't blame people for voting Trump in, I blame both the left and those who allowed those jobs to be exported.

I haven't heard of him before, but I have to say I think this video is very persuasive on many fronts.

I've never heard of him before - but you are right. He's making a really valid point.

Crankycunt Sat 12-Nov-16 21:18:15

I love Jonathan Pie, I've been following him for yonks.

And he is right, debate has been shut down for favor of safe spaces and no platforming.

You see it here, on fb, pretty much everywhere.

You can't have a debate about immigration without being called a racist bigot. You can't have a debate about trans without being called a transphobic bigot.

YANBU, great video! Although stand by to get flamed grin

CockacidalManiac Sat 12-Nov-16 22:08:51

Oh, not fucking Johnathan Pie. He can't maintain an opinion from video to video.
He's the Charlie Brooker for the hard of thinking.

He's talking bollocks. Those on low incomes were more likely to vote Clinton; those on higher incomes more likely to vote Trump.
And what the fuck do you mean by 'the left' in the US?

CockacidalManiac Sat 12-Nov-16 22:14:11

I saw one of his tedious rants about Corbyn; he completely misunderstood the difference between Corbyn's attraction to Labour membership and the electorate at large.

Wookiecookies Sat 12-Nov-16 22:18:42

And there it is... grin

Wookiecookies Sat 12-Nov-16 22:19:30

Hmm... tedious rants, yes. They can be irritating.

CockacidalManiac Sat 12-Nov-16 22:19:58

Hey, I'm not flaming anyone. It's just that he's more of a rejected Fast Show character than an interesting commentator.

MrsLyons Sat 12-Nov-16 22:22:55

...for the hard of thinking.

QED.

Slippydippysoap Sat 12-Nov-16 22:24:25

It's all just an attempt to throw a veil of acceptability over electing the worst kind of bigot.

I really hate this narrative that says the left loses because they shut down conversations. I don't want to hear racist, sexist, homophobic crap passed off as political dialogue.

CockacidalManiac Sat 12-Nov-16 22:26:00

God forbid that those who actually elected this loon take any responsibility for their actions. Has to be the fault of someone else.

WrongTrouser Sat 12-Nov-16 22:26:34

You do know Jonathon Pie is a fictional character, don't you?grin

nb I think the video is fantastic, very true and very funny.

CockacidalManiac Sat 12-Nov-16 22:27:54

You do know Jonathon Pie is a fictional character, don't you?

Yep, as I said; he reminds me of a rejected fast show character

LOL MN is a perfect example of that video, if you said any of that on here you would be banned. The liberal elite just ban anything they dont want to hear.

You're entering a weird new world with this now.

Oh Stewart Lee is untouchable.

I was thrown in gaol once just for looking English (which I'm not). The bar for being arrested and thrown in gaol is remarkably low.
