To much politics

I enjoy political conversations and do that very often. However not on this site and not when discussing professional issues and Tech. Paul in my opinion gets too political at times and this thing with defense of Huawei is beyond my understanding. Paul is in my mind is condescending when he makes political references and it comes across that he has no respect for people with different views than his. I have been following Windows Weekly since it was audio only and just starting out. I have purchased many of Paul’s books. I learned much from his pod casts and books. With that being said, I am cancelling my paid subscription to Thurrott.com and moving on. I don’t expect Paul to change his political views, he has a perfect right to them as I have a right to mine. If I am too sensitive that is a fault with me but I just don’t want to deal with these political comments.

    what is it with americans telling people who they disagree with to not "get political" and essentially "stay in your lane" under the guise of "respect" for "different views"? It sounds like you're the one with no respect for different views.


    The Huawei issue is political in nature and it wasn't Paul that made it political. Same goes for lots of other technology stories such as the ones about facial recognition, the fight over the JEDI contract with Amazon and Microsoft, or even the EU planning to charge Amazon with antitrust - funny how you aren't cancelling your subscription over these stories? Or is it only "political" when it involves a challenge to US's hegemony?


    The current condition is as such and we just live in it.

    Unfortunately, when nearly everything in tech is built in the Far East, politics is going to rear its ugly head. We live in political times and whether we like it or not, we have to suck it up and try to be reasonable about everything.
