Once again, I don't understand your comment... No news outlet, no journalist can be impartial since we're all humans, and I shared that article because I found it interesting, it's an interesting analysis...

Also, which article do you mean, the one you shared or the one I shared ?

Btw, I agree, far-right is a bit overused, next time I'll use the core ideologies that I find disturbing.
In this case, the party (Chega) is populist, conservative, and xenophobic.

"far-right is a bit overused"
I don't see what's wrong about calling an apple an apple.

I remember the dutch politicians and media calling Pim Fortuyn far right. It's an easy way to frame someone, same with far-left.

it's like saying: they are left, but crazy left

When opinion about a subject gets polarized, the words you use will often make people label you.
One of the easiest way to continue having a discussion is to use words the sides haven't made theirs.
Of course, that doesn't... always work...

This thread aged really well! Came because the wariness effect Covid was having on all of us, and the OP saying that there was a coup situation in his country and now Covid in China is getting a 3rd/4th wind (WHO KNOWS REALLY WHAT'S GOING ON OVER THERE)..... aaand there's this war between Ukraine and Russia which many call it as the WWIII and even though there are vaccines there are all of these antivaxx movements/protests........ oh man, can't believe I'm saying this but 2020 was simple lol!!!

Anyways... I'm finding interesting this back and forth from Polaris and SpaceGuitarist regarding death. Internet the ultimate hobby provider hehe

Apparently, Russian soldiers have been admitted to Belarus hospitals with irradiation symptoms, because they had no better idea than digging trenches in the radioactive forest next to the powerplant
