Dems started the KKK.
Right wingers are the KKK.


"Nazi's to the left of me, Antifa to the right. . . .

Here I am, stuck in the middle with you!'


Any group will cling to a political party as long as that political party serves the needs of the specific group.

There is no perfect political ideology. There just isn't.

There is no perfect group of people. There just aren't. Because people aren't perfect.


Everyone has their own biases. Hell, I know I do. Commies, socialists, anti-freedom schmucks. Can't stand them!

There is plenty we can blame the democrats for.
There is plenty we can blame republicans for.

But as much as I'd like to, we can't blame everything on the commie-democrats. Because the cowardly fascist republicans are just as scummy.


See what I did there? I insults two political parties. But it's okay. Because no one should be so invested by any political party that they themselves should feel slighted.

But identity politics being what it is, it is like insulting a person when you insult the political ideology that they adhere to the most.

Well stop being so damned silly.

Who cares what some nameless, faceless anonymous person says on the internet.

There.

I'm done. After all, it was just a moment of clarity. Not a life-changing thing like getting Amazon Prime.

So, extremists are ...bad?


I don't understand how the evolution of labels became so concrete. I call you a nazi, therefore, you are. Case closed.

Aw man;

I thought the democrats were fascists and the republicans were the nazis, WTF is going on here, I'm confused.

If Bacon was people, it'd be perfect.

That's the problem with labels, people are so invested in them that they feel compelled to defend any slight thrown at their "letter" or "direction", even if it has nothing to do with them.

Are there not any individuals anymore?

Who wants to join my party "The Individual"?

..oh sorry, I'm already at max capacity!!

I can't keep up any more.

I figure,, give it another month and it'll be "poo-poo heads" and "ka-ka butts".

Personally I reckon both groups left and right will turn on everyone that doesn't give a sh!t and make it out to be our fault.

Then they'll stick their hands out for free stuff.

We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is #-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.

I couldn't agree more. Embracing the fringe (on both sides) is bad for the moderates.

But, alas, we'll probably get someone on here calling us Nazi's because we said commies suck.

Welcome to the real world. Even the NAZIs called themselves National Socialists.

They were misleading everyone.

Good, accurate Post.

How many people will actually think, and get it, though?

So long as you have the principles and the balls to apply them evenly, tribalism doesn't matter.

I don't see it that way. I see people are the right always have to be "right". The people on the right think their own opinions are FACTS. The left is everyone else.
