22 Things the Far Right Are Easily Offended By

Ever wondered what makes the Far Right tick? You might be surprised to learn that many of their concerns echo broader sentiments with a certain extra zeal. Here are 22 hallmark worries and why they might be a little overblown.

Limitations on Free Speech

The Far Right cherishes free speech and argues that too much political correctness can limit open dialogue. Mainstreamers, however, point out that freedom of speech doesn’t always mean freedom from consequences and that this concern may be a bit exaggerated.

The Potential for Government Overreach

Personal freedoms are highly valued here, with the Far Right often skeptical of a large government’s role. Lefties and Moderates counter that these fears may blow the actual scope of government power out of proportion, given the existing checks and balances.

Non-Traditional Ideas On the School Curriculum

Traditional perspectives on history and science are often the focus in far-right discussions about education. Some argue that this can lead to a narrow, one-sided educational experience that lacks diversity and access to modern scientific ideas.

Regulation on Free Markets

For the Far Right, capitalism and free markets are considered the backbone of prosperity. Mainstream right-wingers caution that this view neglects the importance of regulations aimed at protecting consumers and keeping competition alive.

Rules Around Gun Rights

Gun ownership is a deeply rooted issue. Many on the hard right think a gun is insurance against the government. Yet, people on the left question whether this focus overlooks the complex societal factors that contribute to gun violence and makes it harder to keep people safe.

Changes to Traditional Family Values

Traditional family structures are seen as the bedrock of society. However, those in the mainstream point out that this narrowly defined concept can marginalize other valid family forms like single-parent households or LGBTQ+ families.

The Promotion of Collectivism

The Far Right emphasizes personal responsibility and individual destiny. Elsewhere in the political spectrum, people suggest that this focus could compromise societal well-being and weaken community ties. After all, we all need a little help sometimes.

Creating Open Immigration Policies

Stricter border controls often take center stage in Far Right dialogues about immigration. People on the left argue that these stringent measures can lead to inhumane conditions and limit opportunities for people seeking a better life.

A Global Focus in Foreign Policy

An America-first mentality dominates Far Right perspectives on international relations. Some of us believe this approach may be damaging to essential global partnerships and it could diminish America’s international standing.

Perceived Bias in the Mainstream Media

Mainstream media is often viewed with suspicion, citing liberal bias. Mainstream right-wingers worry that this level of suspicion can drive individuals toward less credible sources, thus promoting the spread of misinformation and even conspiracy theories.

Opposition to Voter Identification Laws

The Far Right is keen on tighter voter ID laws to ensure election integrity, something they feel is under threat. People with other political views tend to object that this can disproportionately impact marginalized communities, reducing their voting capabilities.

High Taxation For Public Services

High taxation is viewed as harmful to economic growth by the Far Right. Taxation is nobody’s favourite but some common projects do require taxes to pay for them. Some argue that this stance often neglects the social benefits derived from tax-funded public services like education and healthcare.

Any Threat to Religious Freedom

Freedom to practice one’s religion is highly prized. Religious freedom is an idea that goes far beyond going to church for the Far Right. It means having religion anywhere in your life that you see fit. Left Wingers note that this freedom can sometimes be used to discriminate.

Softer Criminal Justice Systems

A tough stance on crime is often a sticking point for the Far Right. They want convictions and long sentences. Moderates, on the other hand, assert that this approach can lead to problems like mass incarceration without addressing the root causes of crime.

Publicly Funded Welfare Programs and Government Aid

Welfare programs are frequently viewed with skepticism and seen as fostering dependency. Some of us argue that this doesn’t give credit to the stabilizing role these programs have, especially for the disadvantaged. It might well be value for money to keep society stable. 

Prevailing Narratives About Climate Change

Climate change skepticism is not uncommon here. People who don’t hold with the Far Right say this position ignores scientific consensus and delays needed policy changes to protect the environment.

Any Overuse of Political Correctness

Too much political correctness is seen as restrictive. Saying it ‘as it is’ is the motto for the Far Right. For people left of center, this way of looking at it can hinder progress toward genuine social justice and equality.

‘Virtuous’ Social Activism

Disruptive protests often meet with Far Right disapproval. It can be a vicious circle where people feel ignored if they don’t protest, but protesting makes some on the right unwilling to listen.

Government-Run Healthcare

Government healthcare often gets a bad rap as inefficient. Nevertheless, moderates on both sides counter that this viewpoint overlooks the successful government-run healthcare systems in other countries. If it works there, why not for us? 

Cancel Culture and Online Shaming

Cancel culture is a pressing concern. Gen Z, Millennials and liberals, however, question whether the fears about being ‘canceled’ really outweigh the accountability for genuinely harmful behaviors that cancel culture seeks to address.

Affirmative Action Policies

Affirmative action is often met with skepticism. It might seem to ignore some individuals’ merits, especially white men. Sadly, this approach overlooks the systemic disadvantages these policies aim to address.

Limits on Civil Liberties

Civil liberties like privacy are precious and nobody is more worried about them being taken away than anti-government sections of the Far Right. From a left-wing or moderate viewpoint, being this uncompromising might sometimes hinder regulations designed for the greater good.
