Fine me one example of liberals censoring or burning a book.

Just one. I challenge you.


And where is anybodies right to free speech being impeded? Look around this website? See any examples of peoples freedom of speech being impeded? There are threads here every day with the most absurd disgusting things, saying 'Hilary Clinton Has Aids!' and suchlike. Did that get impeded? No. Did it get called disgusting? Yes. But it wasn't impeded.

So you can't show any examples of Totalitarianism in the document.

Thank you!


You need to show that to the SJW's, then give them spankings.


Can we keep your alt right fantasies out of this thread please.

Ill ask again. Can you show examples of Totalitarianism in the Actual Democratic platform?



We are not discussing your strawman, we are discussing what the actual Social Justice Warriors on campuses across the nation are doing by their totalitarian acts.

Eh.

Extreme progressives are about as common as extreme conservatives.

You have your fascist supremacists, corporatists and the like on one side and the triggered safe space flag burning cop hating group on the other side.

Both are extreme minorities, but are bound to make up the majority of what grabs your attention the most. Both because we surely do have a criminal mainstream media, and because Novelty stands out. You're not going to read stories about Jason attending high school class and getting a B on his assignment. That's just not news we care about. We want to hear about a gun toting trump supporter spouting racist remarks, or about an advocate of infanticide, gun bans and the like.

Neither represent a reasonable amount of the people.

Turn off your Internet and TV and walk outside and you're far likely to see the majority of us are in the middle and even hold different stances on difference topics.

I just looked up the "trigger warning micro aggression labels " to see just what in hades name yous were talking about.... you're having a fit, accusing liberals of being totalitarian, over a flipping warning label...
contents might be hot...
smoking by pregnant women may cause fetal injury....
turn off lawn mower before sticking hand underneath to clear off blade...

and now, this lecture, this book has pornographic, racist, sexist, whatever comments...

and from this we are going to burning books (wonder just how many copies of harry potter novels have been burned), and losing our free speech.

and still no sign of the warning label I want... ya know the one that should be posted at the doorway of every catholic affiliated hospital that says it's a catholic affiliated hospital and therefore will place it's religious doctrines above a women's health and lay out exactly what conditions that this may happen....


SJW's in action,


Let the Book Burning Begin: THIS Classic Work Now ‘Offensive,’ Liberals Call for Ban



It is a world-renowned work of literature and one of the foundation stones of the Italian language, but Dante’s Divine Comedy has been condemned as racist, homophobic, anti-Islamist and anti-Semitic.


It called for the Divine Comedy to be removed from schools and universities or at least have its more offensive sections fully explained. …

Franco Grillini, the head of Gaynet, a gay rights’ organisation, said the suggestion that Dante’s writings should be prohibited marked “an excess of political correctness”.

I want to take back the title of "liberal".

I think I'm liberal.
I want fewer laws, more freedoms.

I want drugs decriminalized.
I want freedoms for everyone to marry who they wish.
I want people to be comfortable using the bathroom they feel most comfortable using.
I want all rights returned to people who have served their time in prisons.
I want a government program for mental health.
I think we should take care of the homeless with our tax dollars.
Our military needs to leave the Middle East.
Too many laws on the books for taxes and start-up new businesses. End it.
Lower taxes so everyone can spend their money as they see fit.
No more mandatory health insurance.
Term limits on Congress and Supreme Court.
Fines and punishment for over-spending in government departments and programs.
Punish manipulators in the Fed and Wall Street.
Honesty and transparency in government.
Focus on the individual, not the collective.

Make being a liberal great again!

Pretty sure libertarian somewhat fits what you just listed


Though anything mainstream is bound to be just another way for government to control us with a new name.

*sigh*

Congress is to blame for most of our daily ills. At least, if you don't dive further into conspiracy.

They set the budget.
They declare war.
They can over rule the president.
They make laws.
They passed the aca which is god awful, but not obamas fault.

Diving further... It's really people higher than out president that make things suck. Think Rothschild and such.

Then why is Hillary's 'entire' campaign platform now centered around going down the list of SJW buzzwords in essentially every speech now? She's obviously pretty confident they're the majority now.

Since I have the skewing left so many feel odious in politics, I can state that you are oblivious to the platform as being created to serve their (And Ours) Elite. Bones thrown in an attempt to convince my type that it isn't a conveyance for moneyed interests.

Do not be confused by the vagina power seekers and their whipped friends.
The PCness of this party's lever pullers and the policies of social control are NOT examples of liberalism. They are the culmination of guilt politics and the catering to the war machine. Corrupt and misapplied thinking led to the murderous foreign policies, domestic suppression, voting fraud, etc. and became the backbone of BOTH parties dismaying selections.

I'm liberal, if not entirely progressive and I do NOT like Hellary and I do NOT like the Trumpet.

At a Brazilian BBQ they would be served to the dogs. Overcooked, tough and tasteless.

Political minded people on both sides of the spectrum are guilty of the same transgressions. The divide is by design and a part of the long con on the American people. Humans are easily manipulated and thoughts, opinions and beliefs are easier to control than most would like to acknowledge. Sadly, a majority of people are sheep and I firmly believe there are groups of people and organizations that have focused on mass manipulation and propaganda that have been steering society to the way it is now. The left/right schism is by design. I am brainwashed, and struggle to overcome my programming on a daily basis. I doubt my own thoughts, beliefs and question my own mind. There has to be a better way.


respectfully disagree.
the traditional right/conservatives in the USA still value fairness, and the rights of the individual. traditional America values hard work, respects everyone, and believes in honesty.

today's left (liberal no longer applies, I think) believes in group politics; you are not an individual, you are a member of ___ group. political victory is of the utmost importance so lying and (voter) fraud are acceptable if they advance the leftist cause. hard work, especially in a private business, is for losers. certain groups (Christian, white, male, straight) may be treated with contempt because they are ideologically inferior.

we are in the midst of a generational / values change. I fear that with time traditional Americans will die off and so will the values. looks like the future will belong to book-banning leftists who are great at respecting the sexually diverse but unable to motivate selves to work for a living.

you do realize that a very similar statement could be said of the right, right?
you want lies??? what about the great.... "planned parenthood sells baby parts" fiasco with it's bogus company, bogus driver's license, manipulated videos, and BOGUS congressional investigations that are still going on.

and of course, certain groups (non-Christian, blacks, women, homosexual) may be treated with contempt because they are ideologically inferior.




looks like the future will belong to book-banning leftists


but.... the christian RIGHT has been burning books all along, the christian religion, as well as most other religions have a long history of burning books and manuscripts, destroying artifacts, and hiding any history that doesn't coincide with their world view. it's part of their traditionalist ways... preserve tradition at all costs.

you are just accusing liberals of all the things that the conservatives have been doing all along basically.

and... "american traditional values" have seen an ongoing transformation since the time of america's discovery. a hundred years from now, they will be different from they are today, and I'd be willing to bet that "hard work" won't be valued as highly mainly because robotics will be doing most of the hard work.

Well least we know it really was just a hit piece to discredit people. Here are you own words where you try to conflate SJW with Neo-nazis to discredit them.


You're posting that as if it's some kind of surreal thing to say. That poster is absolutely correct in their accusation.

the dems were all in.

having said that, there is a war on terror going on. we had a bombing in NY this weekend allegedly by someone the FBI knew about and failed to follow up on. FBI so worried about political correctness they didn't do due diligence. same with the Fort Hood shooter; he had all sorts of red flags but higher authority insisted he me coddled and promoted.
