If there's extremism on the left today it's because of the TEA Party and the entire conservative opposition to the Obama presidency. If you don't like what you see from the left then you need to oppose Donald Trump because an extreme from one end breeds an extreme on the other end.

You know what this video is? Controlled opposition. It's not being spread around liberal circles of the internet trying to convince the true believers, it's bouncing all over conservative media. Half the comments I've found are, 'I'm not a liberal but I support you!', 'I'm a conservative and so proud of you!'

You people are so damn susceptible to propaganda.


Yeah remember all those riots on college campuses by a resistance movement?

Yep, me neither.

Reject hate when it's the democrats but embrace it when it's Republicans.

Gotcha.


Where is this hate from the right you speak of? I haven't seen it. I have seen the hatred from the left. I've watched them attack those on the right, both physically and verbally. I haven't seen Republicans show up to Democrat speeches with sticks, bike locks, or those fabulous shields with no hate painted on them that they then proceed to attack people with. I haven't seen the Republicans burning cars, breaking windows of store fronts, throwing rocks, bottles, or whatever else they can find at Trump supporters and police.

So please, enlighten us to all the hate from the right.

This is why I’m an anarchist. There’s a cycle in which the balance of power leans more to the right or left and everyone goes batsnip crazy. Who remembers Reagan-era ultra conservative life? Remember Dee Snider, among others, testifying before Congress because his lyrics didn’t align with conservative values? Fast forward to today and we see the liberals have taken over and lost their minds, with people defending violence against people they deem “Nazis”. It’s all about votes. It’s all about pandering to the hive majority over issues that are trendy so that we remain divided and thus more easily controlled.


exactly.

anarchy - no rulers. not no rules. No rulers.

The people need to take responsibility for themselves and take the power back from our "leaders".

This does not mean the Republicans are gaining people.

Many of these EX liberals are now registering as independents and may vote ether way depending on the candidate.

Just watch when you are registering you are not registering for the American Independent Party.

You need to put down no party preference.

OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! I haven't fully watched the video yet(in progress), but the moment I saw him share a screenshot from theroot.com I just had to chime in a big THANK YOU!!!!!!!! That is one of the most hateful, racist websites out there. Just read their articles and what they say about white people, even the ones who are their friends. The reverse racism is disgusting in this country, especially how many people are ok with it all because it's against white people.

The final nail in the coffin.......

Now Bernie Can't Even Run

All those Gen Y & Z are going to be ticked.

Why are the democrats sabotaging themselves so badly if they had a good candidate they could beet Trump.


That could be the Dems putting a nail in their own coffin if Bernie decides to run as an independent.

And he just might since they've screwed him over twice.

True enough, and that's fine with me. We could use more independent voters. Just be aware that in some states you can only vote in the primary for the party you're registered to.

I've seen many do the same, even "red pilled" a couple myself.

Not to mention that this was me in 2016, when I turned my back on the "Dem" party for good. A shame too, we used to support all the right things. Now, it is a joke. A "think like me, and do as I say not as I do" cult that has been usurped by a minority voting bloc destined to lose elections.

Meanwhile, the moderate Dems (silent majority) remain silent out of fear of retribution by these angry and volatile children - which know absolutely nothing about reality or how politics work in this country. Fortunately, our Democratic silent majority stands on principles and would just as soon vote Trump/3rd party than hand over power to this vengeful and psychotic group of socialists.

Fine by me. I personally left the DNC for the Republican party. However, people are free to vote as they please and that is the point.

All those mouthy Dems giving their own party # for voting a 3rd party/not voting for Killary should be eating their words right now. Their extremist BS has caused them certain further loses in 2018/2020.

By all means, hope these mindless children keep bullying those who vote their conscience vs. the cultish and violence enforced group think.

It's funny you use the word "cult". I remember a few months ago when the NY Attorney General was accused of harassment and assault. Some women around him said they knew about his actions, but they didn't want to expose him because it would "hurt the party".

That is a #ing cult mentality. And it's #ing scary.

Awesome video. Thank you, OP!

When I was young, I was a liberal. Today I am a conservative. I haven't changed my views one bit. I still believe the same things I always believed: personal responsibility, compassion for the less fortunate, all people are created equal, big government is evil government, and freedom is man's natural state.

I haven't changed; the definitions have.

Which is why I hate labels so much. They change meaning over time, and too many people will move with the labels because it's easier than bucking the trend. It's nice to see so many are finally waking up and realizing this.

MAGA... whether 'D' or 'R' or 'I,' with Trump or without, damn the labels... just MAGA.

Ohhhhh. The triumphant music, heavily edited clips and cherrypicked imagery really has me convinced. There's no way a video could be made with the exact opposite view right? I mean, come on. So we've got run of the mill right wing talking points being told by a attractive-ish dude done theatrically... it really dresses up the same old complaining doesn't it?

Why the hard sell y'all? Get some unattractive fatso sitting in a basement filmed with android and see it for what it really is. Thought you all hated the Hollywood-ish approach. But hey it has about as many views as a cat video that's been up for 10 minutes, so there's that.


what about the message? or is the old rule still all that's needed, to attack the messenger when the message can't be attacked?

Nothing in this said to embrace the right, or become a republican. It just points our the issues that exist with the current version of the left that is loudest.

This is what caused the blow-back, this is what created the "alt-right", which consists of a handful of racists Nazi's. There are a large portion of us who embraced the tea party when it's inception was new, and those same people rejected the corporate hijacked version that erupted from it's ruins.

I wonder, do you even know what other believe or want?

Abortion? Border security? Immigration? Gun control? fiscal responsibility? Compassion?

The things that define a person's political stance have changed. A large portion identify as "right" or "republican", just because the left is so far gone, and there ins't a real middle ground. Libertarians seem to favor conservative ideals, so they get lumped in with what the rabid left calls "alt-right".

I think it's time to re-evaluate positions and thought. The political spectrum is skewed.

I read an impromptu exercise a university professor did a few months ago where he asked his liberal students to articulate their conservative counterparts' stances on different political issues, and then the conservatives to articulate the liberals' views. The conservatives were able to accurately explain what the liberals thought. The liberals descriptions of what the conservatives thought were badly distorted.

As long as republicans are on the the wrong side of every social issue in America, I think I'll stick with being liberal and not really caring at all, where any other individual falls on the political spectrum.

This place has become nothing more than a breeding ground for political extremist views, the vocal minority. Most of America doesn't give a rat's ass what my political views are, nor yours, nor anyone elses.

And therein lies a big part of the problem. To say that the GOP is wrong on every issue is a stretch for anyone regardless of party affiliation IMO. I'm not Republican but yet they have morals and ethics I fully agree with as well as the Dems
and liberals, although the lefts views that I agree with have become farther and few between. As I stated in a prior post I hate being labeled and all party's have liabilities as well as assets. As long as my critical and free thinking is still operable, I'm able to find some form of common ground with all Party's. I've always voted for best candidate not party anyways, but with the current thug mentality of the left, they will not see me cast a vote for a Dem until they chill with their hate, bigotry and hypocrisy. Their childish antics nowadays are just pathetic and I want nothing to do with them.

People saying this is a propaganda video don't seem to be able to separate their own bias and see the forest for the trees, IMO. It could've been made as a propaganda piece, sure, but I certainly didn't see it as such. Watching it with with an open and non biased mindset I found a lot of truth and validity to all that was said. YMMV

What is it about my beliefs that threaten you?

I don't agree with Abortion, I think it's murder, but it's not my place to tell others how to make those difficult decisions, nor do I understand what might lead a person to that action.

I am fully for personal responsibility, I believe that any of us can make it, but it takes hard work and you can't be afraid to fail and try again.

I try not to inject into other people's business, I am against SJW's for that reason.

I was against Obamacare, first, because nobody understood it, and when it was enacted, because it negatively affected my income.

I am for legalization of MJ.

I am for voter registration.

I am for border security.

I think the immigration process should be easier so we can have more taxpayers and less "illegals".

for a start, what about that scares you?

Its an easy package deal, just sign up for a side that basically fits your outlook and have them represent you.


Perhaps when it comes to IDEALS But do they really when it comes to action or reality?




People know politics are important, but no one has the interest or the gumption to research it(re-search) or the gnads to stand up in the middle of a echo chamber crowd


Thats the problem , they still don't have the time and the party isn't really buying you anything or representing you when it comes to action.

Look at the mess the GOP has been when compared to conservative IDEALS, they have acted just like Democrats for the last 3 decades. So if you were lazy and depended on them to represent you , you surely should be disappointed. Its part of the reason Trump was elected. it was a big FU to the PC crowd and the GOP.

These are the actions of the GOP for the last decades:

Big gov't : check
patriot act ,homeland security. Bailouts

Pissing on State Rights: Check
not letting state decides if they should label GMO products,weed,drugs,etc.

Taxes: check
when was the last time the republicans did a significant tax overhaul.? Heck even what Trump did is really not significant in the big picture. The top .01% will still pay little to no taxes via deductions and the middle class will still pay to run this out of control countries spending spree.


Regulations: when was the last time the republicans deregulated anything of significance ?
They complained about the lefts policies for decades and they have done little to zilch about them.

The reality is the two party system are one in the same to make you think you did your homework and you have a voice. In addition they keep you fighting with each other and distracted from the real issues.

they are both Lobbyie$t whores and your opinion doesn't matter to them.

They made it to easy for people to blindly side with a party and feel empowered, while in reality they are being scammed.

The two party system has peaked and now is causing more harm than good.

Amen. People do it because they're lazy and it's easier than actually thinking. Will sufficient numbers buck the trend and start thinking for themselves? I remain less than optimistic.

Whoever thought that Election 2016 would lead to a time where Kanye West appeared downright independent bordering on heroic? Certainly not me.
