This is generally where I’m coming from, although I don’t think i’d limit it to ‘the left’. For one thing, ‘the right’ has been just as quick to attack anything they don’t agree with on social media. Anyone remember people burning their Nike trainers? Gamergate? (but let’s not go there again!)
I think it is true that public opinion, particularly that of younger people, has shifted incredibly dramatically over the past few years. (at least in parts of the US, UK, etc… not in Poland).
Things that seemed very far out of reach even a decade or two ago, such as gay marriage, openly gay politicians, etc… seem to have become accepted by much of the mainstream in many countries.
That’s not to say there aren’t still issues, but even 10 years ago a lot of this seemed far out of grasp. Which means that new issues have arisen, such as Trans rights, which I don’t think were even on the radar for most people a few decades ago.
I imagine because a lot of the generation that has grown up in that time has grown up with the basic idea of rights for everyone, regardless of gender or sexuality.
But the older generations are still around, who didn’t grow up in that environment. Plus there are some countries, such as in Eastern Europe, where attitudes don’t seem to have changed, and have maybe even hardened. And with the internet, we’re all in the same village.
So in terms of things like BLM, gender, LGBT+ etc… it seems to be much more of a case of ‘dogma’s of the progressives’ than ‘dogmas of the left’. Now, the left does tend to be more progressive on many issues and the right does tend to be more conservative - but not universally so.
Younger generations tend to be more progressive and more left leaning, and older generations tend to be more conservative and more right leaning. But again not universally.
But both sides seem to engage in similar ‘cancel culture’ movements. Maybe it’s just a sign of the highly politically divided times we live in.
They are left leaning. I’m not up to date, but personally I’d have thought The Mirror was a bit more to the left. (though maybe the Guradian is a bit more progressive).
But basically those are the only left leaning newspapers in the UK, all the rest are right leaning.
