      Katie Hopkins had an article published in The Sun only a couple of years ago where she compared refugees crossing the channel to cockroaches and urged the government to send in gunships to kill them. I'd say that was pretty openly racist

      If I recall she was swiftly removed from the Sun after that and condemned by almost everyone for those comments.

      Nobody at the Sun seemingly had a problem with the piece before it went to print. These articles don't just magically end up in the paper - they have to go through a chain of proof-readers, editors etc before they hit the press, so it's certainly an example of a major publication being openly racist. They only took action after the backlash to save their skin

      You do need to if you want to back up your point, otherwise most people might think you are just talking sh*te, again!.

      Just to clarify I am in no way disputing that the tabloids are horrible and disgusting, I am just disputing that any major publication is openly racist or homophobic these days, a claim you made which you are unwilling or unable to back up.

      I think it's not a stretch to say that the likes of the Mail are openly xenophobic when it came to some of their headlines surrounding Brexit

      Deny it or bury your head in the sand if you like but they're

      ok you may have a bit of a point there with the xenophobia, although I think it was more anti EU than anti foreigner.

      You cant be xenophobic against an organisation

      You can be against groups of people, there are loads in this country unfortunately

      Theres a fair few on here

      I didn't actually use the words openly racist or homophobic, I referenced the mail's and sun behaviour towards the city of Liverpool, the only one who mentioned openly racist and homophobic was you, hence why I wouldn't answer your gobs***e questions.

      And ends up being used as policy by the current incumbents in govt, hence Priti F***ing Prattle and the idea of the Royal Navy in the channel chasing migrant boats.

      Hit a milestone post by asking all reds to never forget and never forgive what that rag and mckenzie done, never.

      And if you see fools dressed head to toe in Liverpool gear reading it fuc*ing tell them to sort themselves out and it still goes on.

      The 96 always in our thoughts.

      Mackenzie is a maggot, but he could never pull a move to displease his bosses without being immediately fired. The Suns coverage of Hillsborough was revenge for Militant Labour. Billionaire media moguls tend to frown on whispers of egalitarianism, Mackenzie was just one in any number of replaceable attack dogs.

      But the actual thing that outraged us was the headline "The Truth" that was all Mackenzie.

      it seems odd to hate people you have never met and as a man and as a journalist his reputation is shot but the BBC still use the c**t I want him to burn in hell very slowly and I hope his journey there is long slow and painful

      Had a WhatsApp earlier of what the rag posted about the Bolton game yesterday in which a fan was taken ill and game was abandoned. Fan actually passed away.

      Headline in the rag "footie binned...over I'll fan"

      It really is a nasty, shitty rag.

      Appeals to the masses unfortunately and even worse is they have some sort of say when it comes to elections- those without the ability to think follow blindly whatever the scum say

      I remember the last time I was at Manc airport and this F***ing gobs***e was waving the sh*t rag at me seeing as I was wearing an LFC shirt, unfortunately the pr**k was staying in the same resort and proved to be as big a c**t as first experienced.

      Need a history lesson about LFC ask a manc!

      They're F***ing obsessed by everything scouse. And feel the need to engage in some gobs***e banter as they think we're as obsessed about them as they are about us.

      And we couldn't give two shiney shites about the manc cu*ts other than when we play their clubs.
      They're a northern city plaqued with crime and unemployment same as us.
