@philipmjmhn @HarrisTahweed @MissEllieMae I don't agree with using those descriptors but let's put it into perspective. They were said once and about 6 years ago. It is hardly a campaign of hate, is it?Tom Foster Esq. @tompfoster • 22 Jan 05:56 GMT

@mickbognor @MicahSaysWhat @MissEllieMae I've spent a few minutes replying to tweets explaining a thing you clearly don't understand. And I've also said I don't think using this stuff in regular conversations is a good idea. TBH I was convinced you were the one on a wind up. So here we are... https://t.co/UHLBBIWCEfSulis Min @owl_and_flowers • 21 Jan 21:49 GMT
@KevW1962 @mickbognor @MicahSaysWhat @MissEllieMae Each benefit can be big or small, it's not about "benefits" really, by having those things you're not being cause problems by them, tbh, if anything I think the word privilege is misleading, it's not saying you get something good per se, eg being white just means racism isn'tSulis Min @owl_and_flowers • 21 Jan 19:24 GMT
@laotianrockrat @MissEllieMae There we go race card the true racist is the one who brings colour into the argument to try and strengthen it,as all it shows is they don't have the true intellect to have a proper debate https://t.co/gcuTv20DzNCharles(cb) Baker @Charles23782609 • 21 Jan 16:42 GMT
@peterconlan2 @MissEllieMae The idea is you have people on who arent politicians but who have opinions. The thing with opinions is that they are valid even if you dont agree with them , it stimulates conversation .

@tompfoster @suzejm63 @MissEllieMae Free speech is the right to speak freely without the state shutting you down. I don’t care what someone has to say as long as they don’t say those words or call for the harm of vulnerable groupsNᴀssime @komsomoI • 21 Jan 16:33 GMT
@tompfoster @suzejm63 @MissEllieMae The “PC has gone too far” brigade, who today pride themselves on calling themselves the “anti-wokeness” brigade. Sorry but my generation will not be having bigotry towards minoritiesNᴀssime @komsomoI • 21 Jan 15:48 GMT
@MissEllieMae How very patronising. The resistance has been hiding for too long, dodging the avalanche of woke accusations and abuse. We’ve had enough of your nonsense, the resistance is rising. Get on board the reality trainJaniwink @Janiwink • 21 Jan 14:45 GMT
@GarethHurley5 @MissEllieMae Do you get white people crossing the street to avoid walking past you? Do they call the police if they see you at night visiting a friend in a white neighbourhood? No? That's your privilege working for you.William Hite @WilliamHite • 21 Jan 14:12 GMT
@ZubyMusic @EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae Here, this might help.
Historically accurate diversity seems to be 'diverting from the story'. I can only assume he expected that all soldiers in WWI were white🤷♂️ https://t.co/Gd8Tk4oIHA
@ZubyMusic @MissEllieMae I think my benchmark is (with Mum face) thinking “Oh come on now, that’s ridiculous”
(To wit: a man watching a 2 hour film and calling a tiny moment of a man in a turban a prime example of “forced diversity” and “institutional racism”)
Oh come on. That’s ridiculous.
@EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae There's a massive difference.
I like many liberal people. I have family and friends who are liberals. We can have convos that don't devolve into name calling, accusations and assumptions of evil...
I can't think of a single 'woke' person who I can get on with.
@ZubyMusic @MissEllieMae I have no reason to disbelieve you.
And I absolutely accept that in creative circles most people tend to be liberal.
And I also accept that there are noticeably less prominent actors/singers who declare as RW.
@EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae That's not my argument at all.
Laurence Fox is far more in touch with the average person in the UK than the Labour Party leaders. Let alone most Hollywood actors...
Relevant example. Most people think 'white privilege' is bunk. Including myself. To not know that, is 'elitist'.
@EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae - Normally university educated
- Often white & middle class
- Unironically uses terms like 'white privilege', 'toxic masculinity', 'male fragility' & 'people of colour'
- Thinks all women & non-whites are inherently underprivileged and need help
- Puts pronouns in Twitter bio
@Gary_M_Wilkes @MissEllieMae So why is HE complaining about the accurate depiction of a Sikh soldier in WW1 - whose contribution has historically been ignored until recently - sounds like the exact opposite of your tweet doesn't it.ydrol @ydrol • 21 Jan 12:27 GMT
@EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae You’re whining about Boris Johnson, but he is elected and voters can remove him. We can’t easily remove all these other people who have infiltrated all the various institutions. I can’t even watch Doctor Who now without getting a liberal lecture.Phil @SmithScribe • 21 Jan 12:13 GMT
@JohnHamilton44 @MissEllieMae Common to who?
White people are only 16% of the global population. So, for the world as a whole, it would be common sense for the most powerful governments and richest companies NOT to be run by whites
@mockferret @MissEllieMae It is bigotry to assume that everyone whom expresses support for a right wing party is themselves right wing.
Ignoring the fact that Conservative policy is not completely right wing is where your error lies.
@rtsuppliesltd @LLHallJ @EmmaKennedy @MissEllieMae Here’s a start. Look at the definition and see if the person is exhibiting any characteristics that fall in line. None, no one called him racist, he actually accused her of racism. You’re mistaken.Fela @ImSoSketchist_ • 21 Jan 11:46 GMT
