Certain subjects – race, immigration and Islam in particular – attract an unacceptable level of toxic commentary, believes Mary Hamilton, our executive editor, audience. “The overwhelming majority of these comments tend towards racism, abuse of vulnerable subjects, author abuse and trolling, and the resulting conversations below the line bring very little value but cause consternation and concern among both our readers and our journalists,” she said last week. As a result, it had been decided that comments would not be opened on pieces on those three topics unless the moderators knew they had the capacity to support the conversation and that they believed a positive debate was possible. 
The policy would be worldwide, applying to our UK, US and Australia offices, as the issues were global. And, where they were open, it was likely that threads would close sooner than the typical three-day window. “We want to host conversations where there is a constructive debate, where our audience can help us broaden our journalism with their expertise, their knowledge, their considered thoughts and opinions, and where they can use our site as a platform to make connections with the world and with those around them,” added Hamilton. 
This was not a retreat from commenting as a whole, she said; it was an acknowledgement, however, that some conversations had become toxic at an international level – “a change in mainstream public opinion and language that we do not wish to see reflected or supported on the site”.

"Toxic", like "populist", is one of the classic giveaway words of an elitist concerned that the dumb plebs are being allowed to speak too much.

It was the experience of censorship on the Guardian website, especially on the topics mentioned above, that started me on a political journey from Left to Right. I realised the European Left was simply incapable of dealing rationally with anything related to brown-skinned people, so entranced had it become with the issue of Race.

Free speech has always been the ultimate moral touchstone to me. When you see people who can't handle it or won't accept it, it's a sign there's something wrong with them. I got that signal from the Guardian years ago. I got it from the Counterjewhad movement more recently.

Fortunately the Guardian is losing upwards of £50 million per year, so hopefully we won't have to put up with it for much longer.

    A quite extraordinary admission. The Left inhabits a dream world, and when reality threatens to intrude, the Left, far from facing up to it, retreats further into its comfort zone.

  2. As an explanation of the monetary losses suffered by the Guardian (justly so, in my opinion), it should be noted that in 2014 the Guardian had lost 40% of its print readership. That is a stunning loss which confirms that the British public is now, thankfully, voting with its purse strings which may eventually strangle this monster. I have always contended that it is MEDIA ('lying,' 'lamestream', 'jew', whatever) who are our greatest enemies because on the media devolves the responsibility (completely corrupted by it) to investigate as well as report. Instead, it is the propaganda tool of governments and organisations who are committed to our genocide and/or enslavement. It is the enemy.

  4. Determinados sectores, de la Izquierda ( política ), y de la Derecha ( política ), son las herramientas del mismo poder que gobierna, en todo el mundo occidental.

    No es de extrañar que periódicos como ¨ El País ¨, ¨ The Guardian ¨ , etc, etc..
    tengan la misma línea editorial, excepto para asuntos tan sensibles como Snowden y los cables.

    Es simplemente más censura para todos aquellos que no opinamos como nos quieren imponer, quieren que pensemos todos la misma cosa, y, que, la información es un arma.

    En el Reino Unido, sabemos, en realidad lo sabe todo el mundo, que se mira con lupa esas políticas relacionadas con el Racismo, ya que hay muchos ciudadanos que no son de raza blanca o de cultura occidental, y de ahí que los propios ciudadanos hayan cambiado su forma de pensar con pensamientos tergiversados o similar ideas.

    Es así, no debería de ser, pero lo es.

    Totalmente de acuerdo con la opinión ( comentario final ) sobre el artículo.

    Censorship. (

  6. There does not exist a single place on earth where White people are not shrinking as a percentage of the general population. In the USA, white children of elementary school age are now a racial minority. It is really best that we not talk about this.

    1. I believe there are very more whites-italians than "white" Americans .the current "white" Americans are full of indigenous, black, Jewish and Sicilian blood

      The majority of "White" americans have weird facial features as flat head, short and wide skull, wide and flat noses, small eyes ,thick lips ( Look in the negroid lips of the police darren wilson ) , Negroid or Mongoloid dental arcade..

      Many mongrels that are partly white(people like Rob Schneider, Miley Cyrus , Mark-Paul Gosselaar,liv tayler,Cameron Diaz,sarah palin, Ted cruz ,Fergie,Edward Furlong, Wentworth Miller, chad murray , etc etc etc) ALSO prefer if Identify as white .
      even within the WN American There are several mestizos :


      Andrew anglin, Rodney Martin, Kyle Rogers , Andrew Auernheimer , MAt parrot , joe sobran , lincoln rockwell Gordon Baum and Matthew Heimbach are some examples!


      Many other things indicate nonwhite ancestry, like prognathism, extremely wide noses, the epicanthal fold, flat faces, frizzy, or extremely curly hair, or overly thick and dark straight hair, large negroid-esque lips, thick eyelids, very large cheekbones, and sallow skin, among others.

      Very dark eyes and hair paired with any of these characteristics is also a very good indicator that a person is nonwhite.

      which is why I don’t have faith that the white american populace is 63 percent, the numbers are below 20% in my opinion, they constantly mingle Mongrels with the Real western White american population.
