Really? Interesting.

Should we be expecting a huge conservative "coming out" party in the near future?

Remember they're conservative hence it's hard for them to come out.

"Free Speech Week" at UC Berkeley coming soon and if the local authorities refuse to provide adequate protection against groups like ANTIFA then it will be extended to "Free Speech Month".

This would be the time for the lefty communist types to try to provoke a civil war, if they so desire. The local police better be on their game this time, because the mayor so far, has been a complete joke by ordering the police to stand down in many cases. It will be an interesting week/month. I have no details as to the exact date yet.

That was the biggest news I got out of the live event.

He should be allowed to speak without fear and adequate support. Though, I also support the right to protest of those that disagree with him.

Let's also not forget that Berkeley did offer Coulter another time/date to speak in which she could have received the proper support, but declined.

If people are going to be controversial, they should at least have the balls and the brains to do it at a time when that support is available.

When you actually find a "lefty communist type", let me know. I've yet to find more than just a few.

I'm referring to the new regressive leftists. Not classic 'liberals' as we all used to know prior to about 10 years ago. They are not the same thing.

Not the same. Does that mean they are communists?

Communism is a very specific ideology and communists believe in very specific things.

I'm a socialist and I have a hard time finding Leftists that are willing to go even as far as I would take it, let alone to the extremes of communism.

Well, then you're not paying attention.


"Liberals" aren't socially known in the classic sense as they used to be, and if you ask most college aged self-proclaimed 'liberals' if they support socialism, I'd wager most would say "indeed!". Why do you think Bernie was so popular? You're just not living on the same planet as I am if you think most of today's "liberals" wouldn't side with socialism at the very least.

Methinks you are being purposefully dishonest. No idea why.

ETA, oh, and yes. Some "regressive lefties" are for communism, openly. Most aren't, (yet) but there is an extreme faction. Then you have other regressive lefties now claiming to be libertarian socialistic anarchists. They honestly believe that mixture actually makes some semblance of sense.

It's a sad state of affairs when I'm home alone on a Friday night, but I watched it to see what this kid is about. I watched a speech of his or two before, but I haven't really followed him.

I completely agree with his stance on free speech. I agree that enlightenment requires the destruction of political correctness. I like the idea of starting companies to compete with the orthodoxy.

But then I also realized I do not like conservative activists just as much as I do not like progressive activists.

You'd wager, or you know? There is a big difference, considering the statement you made.



Why do you think Bernie was so popular? You're just not living on the same planet as I am if you think most of today's "liberals" wouldn't side with socialism at the very least.


Socialism is not the same as communism, which is important when digesting your post.



Methinks you are being purposefully dishonest. No idea why.


Methinks you are pushing a specific term (communism) for dramatic effect. I know why.



ETA, oh, and yes. Some "regressive lefties" are for communism, openly. Most aren't, but there is an extreme faction. Then you have other regressive lefties now claiming to be libertarian socialistic anarchists. They honestly believe that mixture actually makes some semblance of sense.


Most aren't. Glad we cleared that up.

Socialism is not the same as communism, which is the distinction I made.


Sure, but we know that it has a tendency to lead to communism. Of course, you'll deny that all day, so whatever.

The rest? Meh.

Socialist ideas can lead to communist beliefs, just as Right Wing conservatism can lead to abortion clinic bombings or attacks.

Do we base the value or truth in any belief on the extremes that may, potentially, occur?



The rest? Meh.


Not unexpected. You had to backtrack just a bit. To admit as much would require...honesty.

LOL, and an expected response in return. The rest was nonsense that I don't care to go on about in an endless circular argument. Think what you want. Honestly.


I don't care.

Of course you don't want to respond. Either you are full of it or talking out of your ass.

You backtracked.

If you did care about honesty and truth, you wouldn't have to. Instead, you try to push political narratives that many of us are not dumb enough to fall for.

I did not backtrack anything. Good buzzword tho to try to get the juices flowing. Now you are baiting, which really causes a loss of respect points I may have had on your behalf.

Again, I really don't care what you think, and I'm certainly not interested in spending all night doing circular arguments with you.

Ironically the right hates him just as much as the left, I think he's more of a libertarian that just likes to point out the elephant in the room which is the absurdity of PC culture and the regressive attitudes it promotes.

Indeed you did. I wonder if you are honest enough to see them.



Now you are baiting, which really causes a loss of respect points I may have had on your behalf.


Keeping you honest is now considered baiting? Ok.

As long as we are being honest, you had no respect for me or my views. That's another bit of dishonesty on your part.

If you did, you would not have conflated liberalism with socialism, with communism. And then backtracked by saying "most aren't".



Again, I really don't care what you think, and I'm certainly not interested in spending all night doing circular arguments with you.


So you had a few "respect points" for me but do not care what I think? Nor interested in defending the statements you made?

It appears everything is coming together.

I really like his ideas, and I especially love his salt production, but it was difficult to see past the promotion and spectacle of it all to see any sincerity. I will definitely give him more chances as I suspect speaking in front of such a crowd involves some showmanship, I just do not like the resulting tribalism at work here.

I made it crystal clear that classic "liberals" are not what they have been taken over by 10 years ago or so, and instead modern "liberalism" has taken on the form of "regressive leftistism". I also said most regressives aren't communists (yet), aside from the extreme ones and trendy kids who think it's cool. While most ARE socialists, or at least they support the notion of it, of which you denied.

It seems to me that you are the one unable to distinguish the difference between a socialist and a communist since you chose to lump them into one thing, which I did not do.

This is what I mean by circular argument. No matter what I say, you're going to twist up and try to make something appear as something it isn't, nor ever was. Then proceed to bait with BS like "you backtracked", when no such thing happened. Only in your diluted little world did that happen.

This is why respect points are lost on you. You're either speaking in pure desperation or pure bordem at this point. I don't get it, but I really have no interest in continuing to entertain your pointless need to argue over BS.

I'd say im closest to social liberalism I believe in individual rights but I also think the governments duty is to take care of its citizens. But the left has gone off the deep end as of late and moved into full fledged communism.
