future European beaches

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Why do you spend your time posting questionable right-wing news from Europe on a Cambodian forum ?
It seems that you have nothing to do here except posting the same anti-Muslim stuff from the UK. You are not the only one who does that, and I think the forum moderators are quite tolerant, but IMO you are only here to post your political agenda and none of it has anything to do with Cambodia. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we have been too tolerant of your troll-posts.
QUESTIONABLE SOURCE

A questionable source exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for the purpose of profit or influence (Learn More). Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact checked on a per article basis. Please note sources on this list are not considered fake news unless specifically written in the reasoning section for that source. See all Questionable sources.

Overall, this site is Questionable due to extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories and poor sourcing.

Detailed Report

Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Anti-Islam
Country: Unknown

History

Voice of Europe is a far right website that publishes sensational stories. Although the website doesn’t list who runs the site, according to Whois the site’s registrant name is Annemiek Ploumen. According to Dutch magazine De Groene Amsterdammer (independent Dutch weekly news magazine published in Amsterdam), Erik De Vlieger is the financier and founder of the site, although he will not confirm or deny this publicly, while Daan van Seventer is the technical person. Voice of Europe doesn’t have an about page, however according to their twitter profile information they describe their content as “Conservative news network delivering you breaking news, uncensored articles and must-see videos.”

Funded by / Ownership

Ownership is not disclosed, however Erik De Vlieger appears to be the financier and the website is primarily funded through online advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, Voice of Europe reports stories from European media and frames and spins them in a misleading way that always turns out negative for immigrants and the European Union: “Almost 98% of gang rapists in Sweden have a migrant background”, “Sweden reports highest number of murders in fifteen years” Voice of Europe also has a poor track record with fact checkers.

Voice of Europe’s stories consist of sensational click bait headlines and focus on a variety of topics that are mostly anti-immigrant with emotionally loaded headlines and content such as “Swedish student suspended for telling the truth about migrant sex crimes.“ Voice of Europe frequently uses factually mixed sources such as Breitbart, Daily Mail, Gatestone Institute, and Sputnik News.

Overall, this site is Questionable due to extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories and poor sourcing. (M Huitsing 4/8/2018) Updated (10/24/2018)

I keep seeing this term "right wing" pop up more and more lately. What is your exact definition of this term?

It's funny, because I don't ever recall hearing "left wing",

My feelings on the term "right wing" when it is mentioned is that it's the new "your racist" ranting. Something thrown out to put someone on the defensive.
Granted, there are people with more right leaning views that have very racist views, same might be said of many left leaning people. Everyone is different.

I miss the old days when it was just "conservative" vs "liberal". but then "liberal" became tainted in a negative way, thus was born "progressive"
What, Me worry?

The French Revolutionary era was where the terms Left-wing politics and Right-wing politics first originated.
The reason for the terms to become used at all was the seating of the ancien régime of France at that time. The aristocrats sat on the right, and the commoners sat on the left.
It's from the French revolution, Highlander.

"I didn't leave the left, they left me."

While I have some sympathy with all the views expressed in this thread, I don't think this forum is the best place to discuss the very serious issues of changing demographics that are taking place in western countries at the moment.

I also agree that the term "right wing" has become a slur. Gas-lighting people and telling people they are racist or Islamophobic for being concerned about these issues does not help things. This is what radicalizes people.

I've mentioned this before but as a classical liberal (or in American speak a conservative libertarian) I find myself being lumped in with the right, mainly because there is very little press/media that publishes from that perspective. Why? It's just not profitable.

Being right-wing or conservative isn't necessarily a bad thing - you know, wanting to conserve things.

It would be nice if the people who preach diversity and tolerance could also extend that to diversity of opinion.

Especially when it’s just a link with no heading or quoting. Just fucking lazy.

Didn’t read it. Don’t care.

Because, unlike "Halal" beaches in Europe, Chinese take-over in Cambodia actually relates to Cambodia and those people that live there?????

There's a small group of loud posters who post large amounts of posts the hours it's most uncomfortable to respond for those in Cambodia. They use late night hours as an excuse to agree with each other about those goddamn joos and say controversial things to give the impression that large numbers agree with them.

It's not only allowed but encouraged. In the name of freedom of speech, they seem to be driving away those interested in the forum's main focus: Cambodia.

If "Rest of the world" means holocaust denial and these tireless discussions, maybe they should just close "Rest of the world" and you can go back to the Infowars comment section.

I'm personally very tired of this and "pedophilia is not a crime" type posts.
