Happy New Year, Chaps and Chappettes!
Hope your festive period featured as much food and giggles as mine, and that, when the time came, you did your duty and gave 2016 a kick in the bollocks as the f**ker finally died.

The foul mouthed Charlie Brooker gave his usual, brutally honest assessment of the past 12 months, and it's up on Youtube. Watch it while you can!

The only reason it seems like a big deal is because everyone is making it a big deal. 2010 was worse for celebrity deaths, crime, and economy.

2016 in a nutshell.

Bunch of celebrities die (Alan Rickman, David Bowie, and more I cant remember off the top of my head)
That fucking gorilla died.
More celebs died.
Brexit happened, people got slightly triggered.
Even more celebs died.
Trump won the election, the left in America proceeds to lose its collective shit.
A few more celebs die.
Oh, and the refugees who may-or-may-not be responsible for rates of rape in several European countries skyrocketing.  Cant forget that one.

So, a pretty hit or miss year.  I'm not getting into politics - thats already happened in the comments.  My only plus side is that Betty White and that immortal fuck Kieth Richards are still alive.  2017, please dont be as bad...

brutally honest? More like brutally biased. Seems like Charlie Brooker is locked in his own echo chamber. 
It was a pretty interesting video until he decided to get political. 

you guys think it was racists who cause this to happen. heh no. It was the far left, mainstream media and sjws who cause this. When you guys go and slandering, blocking people or shutting down opinions that don't agree with yours, this is what happens. People got sick of your s**t. People think too, guys. Debate. Plain and simple. That's how you get a point across

www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLG9g7…

While I don't agree that Trump will do anything bad, this video pretty much hits the nail on the coffin. People got tired of the left like me. We have something here in the US called freedom of speech. You know that one thing that our soldiers fought so hard for us to keep? People have the right to offend and people have the right to be offended. Political correctness doesn't work anymore. We need to learn to stand up for ourselves.

This is one of the main reasons why the results of the brexit and the presidency concluded this way.

I wish he had spoken more about the Clinton scandals - Wikileaks details and the alt right 'pepe' didn't get a mention but grab her by the pussy did.

As for the CIA comments, I am open to the idea that the Russian government or Russian civilians may have released the emails to wikileaks; but I'm not believing anything until they release proof. The CIA aren't known for being trustworthy.


If you keep watching he does talk about left wing elitist's in politics so overall I think this video pretty fair.

But yeah, you think it's bad now? Remember that both those "awful" results were very much 50/50, with Leave barely edging out stay and Clinton winning the popular vote. It wasn't a devastating loss for the Left. Just wait for them to react when Brexit goes into effect and Trump is inaugurated...

There's a difference between "being honest" and "being right"--they're not the same. "Being honest" requires you to believe what you're saying, and "being right" requires what you're saying to correlate to the facts. I could say Trump's a racist and Hillary's corrupt, and that'd be honest, but not necessarily right unless it was deemed 100% that this was true. In contrast, saying global warming is real is correct, despite other people believing otherwise.

This disconnect is why both Brexit and Trump got through: people believed they were honest, but they weren't necessarily right.

"It's not the right wing blaming dumb crap on video games or media any more."

Actually it is, they never gave that one up, see now they're saying you shouldn't show lesbians or gays on TV or in culture becasue it corrupts children... again you can can find right wing blaming tv culture and everything else for just about everything now a days...

there were  a bunch of morons who wanted to blockade and or boycott Rogue One becasue they were offended that the diverse cast, female lead and etc. were pushing a PC agenda...

and finally the bullshit that needs to be addressed is that the left doing this, are social groups, not government...government is not the sjw's there are no sjw laws, there are no government officials dictating what opinion you get to half and or calling you names...it's all people in social media/society...something that doesn't change with a change of government, the only way to stop sjw's is to curtail freedom and democracy to shut down free speech and rights.

there is no government change o protest that will fix that...you've all been had.

No, the only thing people have a problem with any more is the needless, stupid and pandering choices to make a previously established character gay or what ever for "Diversity" when often times the people crying out for .. oh say.. a gay Captain America, don't actually give a damn about the character, read comics, or watch the movies.

One of the reasons Rogue One had people thinking of boycotting it or blocking it, was because they brought in two SJW writers that made that trash 'female thor' comic in Marvel and people didn't want to see what should be a good Starwars War movie stuffed full of SJW bullshit.

The Government IS doing this.

"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon Martin" When no facts or issues came out, and when it was later shown, but ignored, he was a gang thug, who TRIED TO BASH SOMEONES HEAD IN FOR FOLLOWING HIM. Not to mention the many MANY comments from the POS POTUS about "cop violence" when they are taking about things that where justified use of force, Or the legitimizing of rioters as 'peaceful protesters'

Not to mention how The Media in America is so tightly looked to the left side of the Isle that they are nothing more than a political tool.

The Courts allowing gays to sue cake shops for saying "no thank you" when a cake shop should be able to tell ANY ONE no, they're a business, it's their right. Mass wide condemnation of legal honest gun owners, when a criminal uses a gun to break the law. Ignoring or assisting those who want to say to shut down anything Christian, defending "not all Muslims, but lets blame the gun."   Constant targeting of right wing establishments using the IRS, which is illegal and got Nixon impeached. The constant bullying from the White House about "Protecting women and minorities" while lying about a Wage Gap but pandering, apologizing and ignoring groups such as ....ooh.. Muslims and Islamic terrorists, that ..oh..I don't know.. kill Minorities like Gays, treat women as property and trash and abuse those not their exact kind of religion. But if you say anything publicly against Islam, We've had Loretta Lynch, the Fricken ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE US, say she will prosecute you for "hate speech"
The Governments constant pandering and bullshit TO the SJW's that refuse to live in the real world and then schools and courts make LAWS for them. In New York? Gotta use preferred Pronouns or you could be FINED!

And in the UK and EU it's even WORSE, You can be ARRESTED for offending someone, you can have your business shut DOWN if you offend a snow flake. You're not allowed to look at a islamic dirt bag that just raped your sister and say "You need to go to jail" because the insane bastards running the place say that "well they just don't know not to rape. Here After your jail sentance or Fine for being intolerant, wear a 'don't rape me please' arm band" And this falls in line with SJW's because they will cry bitch and piss about the while male all day long, but Islam? "It's their culture of peace"

I mean good lord, it is only just now that Germany's leaders realize their own people are fricken pissed and are starting to stop being 'Politically correct'.  The Swedish police admit they can't do anything, Norway isn't even allowed to call their or any visiting military powers a damn Military Power, they have to call them "Defense Forces" And don't you DARE talk about how "refugees" should adapt to and accept the countries culture because you're an "Immigrant hater" and can be FINED. 

In short, You're fucken wrong. There IS a way to shut the SJW's up and without messing with any constitutional rights in the US or anywhere else.. have a Government that stops fucking supporting their dumb ass way of thinking.

" oh say.. a gay Captain America, don't actually give a damn about the character, read comics, or watch the movies."

Captain America is kind of gay...the whole bromance with him and Bucky is always portrayed in satire and comedy as being gay.

"One of the reasons Rogue One had people thinking of boycotting it or blocking it, was because they brought in two SJW writers that made that trash 'female thor' comic in Marvel and people didn't want to see what should be a good Starwars War movie stuffed full of SJW bullshit"

Well if they had brains they would watch the film and judge for themselves rather than bitch and whine about boycotting a fucking film...which i believe is coming up to almsot 800 million dollars at box office...

again are we in the age of reading books or burning them becasue we don't like the authors or what they say?

" When no facts or issues came out, and when it was later shown, but ignored, he was a gang thug, who TRIED TO BASH SOMEONES HEAD IN FOR FOLLOWING HIM."

According to whom, the guy who killed him...how convenient his narrative is the only one we believe huh?

not too mention so what? did the government overturn Zimmerman's acquittal? no okay so then nothing really came of it and the government's influence/ support for the deceased an unarmed biy (oh sorry i forgot when we want to dehumanize black kids who get killed we all them thugs just as when we want to dehumanize children born of illegal immigrants we only call them anchor babies so as not to confuse them with human beings, my bad)  didn't affect the trial or verdict one bit...

"Not to mention the many MANY comments from the POS POTUS about "cop violence" when they are taking about things that where justified use of force, Or the legitimizing of rioters as 'peaceful protesters'

yeah he also addressed the other side of the argument too

time.com/4407362/president-oba…

i can also provide links to the full speech he made addressing both sides concerns and legitimacy... you know to be intellectually honest here.

"Not to mention how The Media in America is so tightly looked to the left side of the Isle that they are nothing more than a political tool."

Actually they are a money making tool...

"The Courts allowing gays to sue cake shops for saying "no thank you" when a cake shop should be able to tell ANY ONE no, they're a business, it's their right."

But it's not their right to leave the country to save money and set up shop in other countries for far more efficient work and much cheaper?

See that's where people lose me, they have the right to discriminate and deny people services but as soon as they affect your personal bottom line by leaving the country then they've gone too far.

"Mass wide condemnation of legal honest gun owners, when a criminal uses a gun to break the law."

Last time i checked the majority of the country was for universal background checks and keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, mentally ill and or mass shooters who obtain their guns legally then go on mass killing sprees...i have yet to see the "mass wide condemnation of honest gun owners" i have seen the condemnation of the NRA and other groups who activley try and prevent any kind of infringement on their bottom line.

"Ignoring or assisting those who want to say to shut down anything Christian"

bull, this religious victimization horse-shit is tiring. actually show where the 60-70% of the country (who are religious) are being oppressed and i mean oppressed as in denied their right to worship and or be christian, not "oh dear we can't force our dogma in schools, on the public and or government/law, everyone is agaisnt us"

"Constant targeting of right wing establishments using the IRS, which is illegal and got Nixon impeached"

First off no it;s not illegal, and it has looked at both sides of the field, but when your tax group is literally called "fuck the irs" they tend to focus on you more.

also Nixon was not impeached for abusing the IRS (have you ever even read the Watergate charges?), he was impeached becasue he ordered the break in of the democrat DNC in order to illegally wiretap and spy on the democratic party to choose and undermine the democratic candidate...

" The constant bullying from the White House about "Protecting women and minorities" while lying about a Wage Gap but pandering, apologizing and ignoring groups such as ....ooh.. Muslims and Islamic terrorists, that ..oh..I don't know.. kill Minorities like Gays, treat women as property and trash and abuse those not their exact kind of religion"

Ignoring...Obama has been blowing up more brown people in the middle east then George bush jr.  see i don;t have tie for bullshit that anyone who can read can figure out is flase...

not too mention i owuld argue that sicne the ally f America's has been Saudi Arabia sicne the 1950's and the fact that the acts of violence committed by american Muslims is not even noteworthy compared to other segment sf the american population, that is a load.

again being for the Constitution means it applies to everyone, not just the people you like.

let them speak and you'll see them for who they really are. You haven't seen Anita Sarkeesian have you? A left wing feminist who's likes to point out sexist in video games and even influenced the media in believing this. She was even at the UN for god's sake and that's just one example of the many regressive left wing who's slandered the population. Look at MTV, Washington post, the young turks, occupy democracy, etc for example. These guys didn't help either and they're even not right wing mainstream news.

No one believes the crazies of the far right wing anymore. The left wing has been smart enough to guilty people in believing that if they don't support their cause then they are racist, misogynistic, etc. 

in terms of race, I think morgan freeman said it best.

"let them speak and you'll see them for who they really are. You haven't seen Anita Sarkeesian have you?"

yes and forgot her just as quickly, just like i ignored and laughed at jack Thompson when he tried the same shit. In fact Anita's power to do anything but bitch and moan on social media is quite evident and unlike people who seem to think this is the biggest threat to video games in history, more so than DLC, lack of creativity, incompetence and bad marketing and or dry and poorly written/ built platform gaming, i pay her no heed becasue she is blip that means nothing and is just a puff of smoke.

"A left wing feminist who's likes to point out sexist in video games and even influenced the media in believing this."

there is some sexism in games but so what there's sexism in just baout everything, what makes Anita different is she actively claims that video games have been purposely designed to teach and or train males to De-humanize and debase women... bullshit she has no credible evidence for, something that she misrepresents and which comes of like it is, crazy and stupid...

"She was even at the UN for god's sake and that's just one example of the many regressive left wing who's slandered the population."

Do you know how many people go and speak and or talk before the UN? well the answer is a lot. And trust me pal if they're putting Saudi Arabia in charge of the human rights council... then some yuppy little whinny bitches from America, crying about being called names on the internet is not gonna phase them.

"No one believes the crazies of the far right wing anymore."

except the right wing, talk show radio hosts and their millions of listeners, evangelicals (83% of who voted for trump)...

listen to Alex Jones, Michael savage, Sean hannity, etc. etc. and the number of people who follow them, support them, endorse them etc. and tell me that with a straight face...

how many people believed that obama was founder of ISIS?well actually many do, just as 33% of the right don't think he's a still a legitimate citizen or american, and why there are people who still believe Iraq had direct involvement in 9/11, as well as that world wide banking and jew run liberal media of course!

i mean if you ever listened to talk radio in America or fox news, etc. you will find that actually yes lots of people believe what they say and follow their every word...

even Donald trump takes his news from info wars (Alex Jones who believes in devils, reptilian replicants who have infiltrated government for the anti-Christ, that sandy hook never happened, Obama is a literal demon, and that liberals worship Satan) and the enquirer/other gossip magazines.

Sad to say, but you are right. I´m left leaning as all hell to the point i would probably be called a commie in the US (i´m not but eh...) and i i think the left has gone of the deep end, hit the bottom of the drained swimingpool and broken out the pickax, shovel and dynamite to dig the hole they are in even deeper.

It´s like they can´t understand that calling everyone who dissagrees with them a "racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, whateverophobic...." all the time doesn´t work because the ones who actually are those things doesn´t care and the ones who are not gets _justifiably_ offended and stops listening.

The Democrat party and media putting the hatchet in Bernies back did more to getting Trump elected than the Rep party ever did.

This is why debate and discussion are so important. my main issue with the left was that I never understood what their end game was to any of their protests. they refer to name calling or telling people to do their research when they were clearly in a position to inform those who genuinely wanted to know more about their "plight" This happened with Trump and Hillary so clearly. I knew Trump's policies pretty well, but I was confused when it came to Hillary, because all she did was slander rather than talk about issues.
