Let's forget the fact Assange is a plant, and did not spend time in prison.

The Irish Supreme Court authorized the extradition, just because your propaganda media does not report on it, doesn't mean it's fake.

In otherwords, we are misidentifying the anti-American group/movement? By calling them "liberals, progressives, left wingers, globalists"? Perhaps it would be easier to just call it the Soros/Clinton/Obama agenda, that belittles American ideals and values.

The semantics may be wrong, but when the ideology is presented we know when to stand up to it.


That's an excellent point. I wonder why the labeling Islamic terrorism must be more generalized, while we should have pin-point accuracy when labeling the Left.

And here we have some fantastic evidence of how utterly brainwashed the American people are.

The fact that you believe that any of the political movements in your country are too far to the left, proves how blinkered and witless you have permitted your nations government to make your people over the last few decades. I will give you a clue... there is no real left in your politics in America. You are an anti-social nation, full of self interested policy, with built in distrust of anything that is not selfish, greed based, any system of application of worth not based in financial things, as opposed to a value system based on greater notions.

You fear and distrust socialism because you have been programmed to, not because it is a toxic concept, but because you have swallowed too much poison to even act in your own defence against the corporatist idiocracy that is growing up around your feet.

The problem with your country is not that there is a dangerous leftist element. There IS no leftist element in your country worth a damn. You think that those idiots who tortured that poor disabled boy were lefties? Of course you do. The propaganda worked on you, thats all anyone can say for certain about that situation.


Regardless of whatever you define all your stuff over there as to what we have over here, we have what we have so your input there isn't helping anyone make sense of this social nightmare we have here known as left/right politics (here by US).

Great topic OP. I try to speak to this subject all about when it's seems like a good spot to insert it. Been needing to write more direct pieces directly at it as you've done here. Our problems go way beyond left/right at this point, that's how dangerous left/right is and how deliberately mindf^@^@ed they've driven down our society to keep us away from them (our overlords, our rulers, what ever it is a person wants to call 'them', 'they' exist and this left/right divide & conquer mind game must be stopped and what OP is arguing is a critical measure by which to approach it).

This is why the form of Socialism in this country is called Democratic Socialism. And you are lying if you are trying to suggest that the Socialism that the left is pushing isn't the same Democratic Socialism that I'm talking about that has existed in the country for some time now.

The only difference between then and now is that we FINALLY have a politician with the balls to come out with the Socialist label. Before they just hid these Socialist policies behind capitalist rhetoric or down played the fact that it was really Socialism because Socialism ='s Communism to FAR too many brainwashed Americans. But he didn't get elected.


Social democracy is not the same as democratic socialism, something that Sanders never figured out. It may have been brave, but equally as stupid that Sanders called himself a Democratic Socialist, and you as an obedient follower are wrong for suggesting any kind of socialism after the spectacular failures of socialism throughout history. No, there is no Democratic Socialism in the US, and probably not in the entire world, but your insistence on including the socialist label is ridiculous. Again, social democracy is not the same as democratic socialism, and you, like Sanders, have the terms backwards, and in so doing have mistakenly embraced socialism in your error.

No you just typed a paragraph saying I'm wrong. That isn't proof of anything except that we have differing opinions.

I gave reasons why, but it appears you're too scared to acknowledge them.

Yes. Those reasons included and ended at an insult to my critical thinking by calling me a follower. Then you said Bernie was a wrong too. Like that somehow covers your bases in the shallowest proof ever.

I'll repeat it for you:

And I'll repeat it again. That isn't proof. That is an opinion you typed out with no verifiable evidence supporting it. Your opinion isn't gospel. Your ego may claim so, but it isn't.

Proof seems to you to mean articles written by people smarter than you. But your appeals to authority don't matter. It's as simple as seeing if the label fits on Sanders, or your claims that Democratic Socialism has already been implemented in the US. The answer is "No".

Whatever proof is. It ISN'T just blanketedly saying, "No. You are a follower and so is the politician you sited earlier".

That's true. Perhaps it is a coincidence that you and the person you wanted to win the election are both wrong, and perhaps it is a coincidence that both you and Sanders proclaim yourselves socialists. I am open to that possibility.

The leftists have gone completely bonkers. The moderate left defected to Trump and the Crony leftists remains and panders to the lunatic far left.
