The hypocrisy runs deep. I don't even think the left knows what it believes anymore. Something something socialism, something something hatred, blah blah blah.

Oh I'll add one more "LEFT" just for you.


Why don't you say The Right? Oh wait, you already did...

The LEFT loves Muslims but is offended by the word "God".


The "left" does't "love Muslims". If "the left" points out a Christian's hypocrisy because of said Christian's criticism of a religion that is a near-identical analog to their own, that is not the same as siding with them.

You'll notice that no criticism of ISIS is met with a defense of Islam. It's the connection of extremism with ALL Muslims that attract the ire of those who see through the racism. Christians aren't directly responsible for the fundie churches burning children alive anymore than the average Muslim is responsible for ISIS tossing gay folk off of rooftops.

The LEFT loves ALL Immigrants but questions Melania Trump's Status.


They only question Melania because of the double standard of Trump's position on immigration.

Duh.

The LEFT says Trump has no Empathy even while donating 1million from his own Bank Account to Harvey Victims.


Lol. Really? If I were to pare his wealth down to most Americans, it's the same as if they donated a dollar.

The LEFT says Love Trumps Hate while at the same time supporting Antifa.


Who says "Love Trumps Hate" anymore? It was a terrible slogan... I mean the first words were "LOVE TRUMP". And to compare Hillary rally folk with people who support Antifa is a stretch.

The LEFT hates the Rich but at the same time Soros has a Net Worth of 25.2 Billion.


Most people on the left I know are well off or in college. Few of them even know who Soros is. The impoverished people I know normally don't even vote and are too busy to know more about politics other than what FOX tells them.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT calls the Right Xenophobia for being suspicious of Syrian Refugees while at the same time has a unhealthy obsession/mass hysteric delusions with Russia.


Again, the Russia thing is because it's pointing out the direct hypocrisy of years of right-wing rhetoric over the dangers of cold war communism vs Trump's bromance with Putin.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT called Romney crazy for suggesting Russia was a threat and now says the Russian Influence on the 2016 Election is equal to the 911 Attacks.


If "the left" as a whole said that, you got me. I don't know anybody who's said that.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT calls the Right Bigots when they lose an argument, or elections.


I can only speak for myself but I call people bigots when they say bigoted things.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT says Trump isnt unifying the Country while at the same time has a movement called "The Resistance".


Ugh... every unilateral narcissist complains about the "resistance" and claims to be "unifying" the country.



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left believes in Abortion but hates the 2nd Amendment.


I know a lot of lefty gun nuts.



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left says your Racist just for being White.


No, they don't. It's your white fragility that translates social commentary into a personal insult on yourself.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT hates tax cuts for the Rich but wants everything Free. Free Healthcare, Free Education etc.,


Do you like your free police force, military, and infrastructure? You socialist, you.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT Loves Free Speech and Expression and yell dictatorship if there Press Pases get revoked or TV appearences shutdown unless its them Wiretapping Reporters who they disagree with.


Lol. Reread what you wrote.



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left calls the KKK, Nazis, and Neo Nazis the far right yet have forgotten these groups were founded by them.


No... those people were always right wing. Just because the Democrats used to be right-wing and the Republicans were left-wing in the past... my god, why do I even have to still explain this to people?



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left calls America's Elections Sacred but at the same time are trying to overthrow the Duly Elected President with Impeachment


Impeachments are sacred, as well. It's part of our system.



originally posted by: Xianb
The LEFT hates War and calls the Right Warmongers even though they started multiple Civil Wars in various Muslim Majority Nations behind the scenes.


That wasn't "the left"; that was our government, led by left and right. Jesus, you can't just call things you don't like "left".



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left brags about killing Osama Bin Laden but cant say Radical Islamic Terror.


RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR. Feel better?



originally posted by: Xianb
The Left says saying Radical Islamic Terror is just a Political Talking Point but at the same time spouts White Supremacy every time some minor incident happens.


No. Most of us acknowledge both. It's only the extreme on either ends that denies either.



originally posted by: Xianb
How can the Left support the LGBTQ community but at the same time support Communism,Marxism, Socialism etc., those people are usually the 1st to be killed in those societies.


I don't think you know what socialism is...

Yep. Glad you noticed.
This thread is another one of many threads bashing the "left" without pointing out anything wrong with the "right".

The really fun part is that someone will do, "The Right" thread.

And mayhem will ensue.

True. It would be more explosive than this thread. I guarantee you.

It honestly doesn't seem possible that any intelligent adult could be that confused about such a large amount of people. But there it is.


I can understand why, but please tell me which parts you find confusing.

I see both the Regressive Left and Trump as nothing more than one of the many pawns of the real power behind the throne and its not the Deep State but a group that has more power than them.


Na no way Trump may have been part of the group once upon a time but its obvious he got kicked out the moment he defeated Hillary Clinton.

I'm talking about the attempt to poison an argument by claiming hypocrisy without actually refuting the argument.

sorry, just couldn't make it through all of your....
whatever that was!!!

but probably why you are so, oh so confused is that you are trying to take about half the population as having the same beliefs about so much!!!

I do notice one thing though...
I think you could reverse just about everything and use the label "right" and it would be about as accurate as the crap you just posted!

That was the most simple minded, shallow, stereotyped OP made from pure bias I've ever read here.

The fact that is what you actually believe is accurate when talking about so many people based on an arbitrary and meaningless label as "The Left" is just sad. It's sad that a person can be that bigoted to so many people and so sure of it like that.

But then there are those that agree and actually think it was a great post and so on point too. It honestly doesn't seem possible that any intelligent adult could be that confused about such a large amount of people. But there it is.

Existentially Depressing.


You sound like the same people saying how could any "intelligent" adult vote for Trump? The Media claimed Trump Voters were all Dropouts lol.

It's the connection of extremism with ALL Muslims that attract the ire of those who see through the racism.


That is what I find confusing since Muslims are not a race, but a religion. It is made up of many races.




Do you like your free police force, military, and infrastructure? You socialist, you.


Actually yes. I do like that. It actually provides a service to this nation. False Equivalence.

A) there is no left....not in the sense your saying it..

That's the dumbest thing ever..

Like anyone who isn't a hard core conservative is "the left.."

Then people try and pin whatever some random YouTuber says on half the country.. as if they all get a news letter or something..

There is no left or right..

There are these specific politicians and big wigs and that's it...


B) the left doesn't love Muslims... SOME PEOPLE like to point out the hypocrisy of Christians having a genocidal ancient text, then pointing fingers at Muslims for the same...

Do you really believe this?? Or are you just trolling???

Because the thought that 55% of the country just LOVES ALL MUSLIMS is laughable.


C) the left doesn't LOVE all immigrants..the hard core democrats love the fact they vote for them..

D) maybe trump did donate his own money to Harvey victims, but his foundation and charities he has run. He hasn't donated anything himself..

He fundraised without donating and and even paid himself for room rentals and portraits of himself out of the donated money..

Obviously trump has empathy.. he was totally empathetic for those at the white supremacists rally.. on the white supremacists side..

He has no problem seeing how some good people could be marching with the nazis..


D) the left doesn't hate the rich.. ALOT of people hate predetory practices that have made people rich while they paid their employees little or nothing..

Just as you pointed to.. people like gates, jobs and others who pay well and do a lot of charity work . Tend to be liberals..



E) obama and a handful of political actors called Romny crazy for russia.. not every single pro choice person in America..

No they usually call some one a bigot for saying something that can be previewed as bigotry... maybe they were wrong.. maybe there was context they are ignoring..

But it's not like every election , every seat.. every person not a conservative screams racism..

F) you can blame guns AND the gunman...

Obviously.. I'm not saying they are right.. just that your analogy is dishonest.. and borderline stupid..

G... the democrat part was the countries right wing when the kkk was formed.. so we're the nazis..

Conservatism= to conserve.. AKA to return to tradition rather than change..

The left in Germany were the communists.. the nazis were Germany ms right wing..

Alright I'm tired of this now..

I hope everyone reads the OP...

This is exactly why I hate American conservatism..

It is all built on logical fallacies and demagogic talking points..

Things that sound good and mean nothing..



It's all slippery slope arguments and over generations..

Your list could be a checklist of logical fallacies that would get you laughed out of a high school debate class.

Huh? There are crazy ones on the left and I merely pointed out that there are crazy ones on the right.
Why are you not agreeing? Afraid to point out the errors of the OP?
