Well according to many minorities, they see that Left Wing White Liberal Racists are more dangerous than Right Wing Racists
Some might be surprised to learn that when people of color talk about racism amongst ourselves, white liberals often receive a far harsher skewering than white conservatives or overt racists. Many of my POC friends would actually prefer to hang out with an Archie Bunker-type who spits flagrantly offensive opinions, rather than a colorblind liberal whose insidious paternalism, dehumanizing tokenism, and cognitive indoctrination ooze out between superficially progressive words. At least the former gives you something to work with, something above-board to engage and argue against; the latter tacitly insists on imposing and maintaining an illusion of non-racist moral purity which provides little to no room for genuine self-examination or racial dialogue.
From what I can see, though, a solid majority of white liberals maintain a fairly hostile posture toward anti-racist discourse and critique, while of course adamantly denying this hostility. Many white liberals consider themselves rather enlightened for their ability to retroactively support the Civil Rights movement and to quote safely dead anti-racist icons, even though their present-day physical, intellectual, and political orbits remain mostly segregated…Armed with “diversity” soundbites and melanin-inclusive photo-ops, they seek electoral, financial, and public relations support from people of color. Yet the consistent outcome of their institution-building agendas is to deprioritize and marginalize our voices, perspectives, experiences, concerns, cultures, and initiatives.

It's definitely anti-Christian, although I'm not sure about "anti-Western". In my experience, far left adherents, generally, seem to be mostly preoccupied with things that are indeed very "Western"--material positivism, gadgetry and technological dependence, immersion in pop culture, hedonism, etc.
Sometimes I think they can't get any more "Western".

The radical left's criticism of the west has been occuring for quite some time and is well documented. Luckily for them it's because they live in the west that they can do so. The irony is they never leave the west and live elsewhere.

I do find it interesting that on a heavily right wing dominant website. The liberal left are pretty much synonymous with all things bad. Though when I joined. I was always being told that conservatives take personal responsibility. Yet when I come on here, conservatives are always blaming one group or another for everything wrong. Whether it be black lives matter or the new scapegoats those pesky millennialist. With their hair cuts and loud music. It's like being transported back to the 50s. Where elvis and rock and roll were the Devils creation.
So when are the conservatives going to take responsibility or is the blame game just that bit easier. Your headed straight back to McCarthyism, but that was when America was great according to the Donald. Simple scape goats, for the simple minded
"The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it."
Either way, the conservative, libertarian and liberal critics were correct about socialism all along.
