Linda has a twitter which reveals her very sensible anti-Trump & anti-fa credentials.

Fight the power, Linda! You rock!

Everyone should be anti-fascist. What's the alternative? To allow fascism?

it never fails to amaze me.how shallow some people are...by dragging politics into a thread..when there was no intentions to do so, in the first place....the question was did Ms. Thorson have a social media presence..i.e. Facebook. or say, Twitter....and where was the origin of the recently posted pics ...

most people, including myself, really don't care about her politics..we are interested in her career, and/or/time/reflections on her time on the series, which was probably was a key point..in jump starting her long career..as over the decades, she has done other shows...including a role in Star Trek Next generation...Now if Ms. Thorson, wanted to drag politics into her thread(s) and is 'anti-Trump' 'anti-Queen' ' anti-Megan'..'anti-Brian Clemens ' etc she would probably make that clear...is she anti Fascist ? probably......if she wasn't, and lean towards it.....guess what ? I wouldn't care one iota....as again, I'm not interested in her ' politics'.....and her being a 'talking head'....

well men, are we clear on this point ? then again, I could inject how out of touch politics in both Australia , and the UK have been from time to time...including the majestic Megan Markle, poster child for abolishing the Royals....in the 21st century....

There will always be Fascists...(sadly) and there will always be ANTI ones as well...it will be interesting to see what direction Italy will go with their new elected official...

Maybe Thorson could play her in a future production..

Fascism, anti-fascism, communism, modern liberalism, (positive)democracy, its all the same. Under all the state controls, healt care, banking, education, housing, etc...

The original antifa was funded by the soviet communists to agitate Germany into extremism by pushing the centre out. Antifa is communist and worse than fascism, and you have to be pretty bad to be worse than that.

Anyway, pro-tip: read or listen Paul Gottfried he literally wrote the book anti-facism. He's excellent on the history of political thought.

Steed and Cathy defeated fascists, Steed and Emma defeated fascists, our grandfathers defeated fascists - great role models, all of them. We could hardly accuse them of being communist!
There is this thing called the centre, being against the far-right does not make you far-left, it may just make you the voice of reason.

Being anti-fascist has nothing to do with Soviets. Plenty of people are anti-fascist. Everyone who isn't pro-fascist, for example.

all of you are missing the point...this thread isn't about fascism, communism, democratic, or any other political machine...it was about Linda Thorson.

if y'all are so hell bent to shove politics down one's throats, You can simply start a thread on politics...knock yourself out...

It's horrible, isn't it? What would they say to their grandfathers who fought against Nazis?

It's irrelevant what the OP thinks the thread should be about, the nature of discussion threads about people is that current causes are part of them, and relevant.

good point...and those 'grandfathers' would probably whoop on 'em....vets of the second world war, had their reasons..held grudges ...in Detroit, for many years, auto workers at GM/FORD/DODGE/etc frown upon those workers who bought and drove a 'rice burner'......and I remember seeing a sign in one of the Ford Nixon plants parking lots, that read 'park your rice burner, in tokyo '..for many years, asian products were looked down on..
