Yet, here you are claiming that these knuckleheads are "the left."


We are claiming nothing. They are identifying themselves as "the Left".

The KKK thinks they're "the right." You take them at their word on that?

The Westboro Baptist Church thinks they're "mainstream Christians" ... you good with that?

Give us a break.

I am against using violence or the threat of violence for political means for any reason by anyone at any time.

The Democratic Socialists as shown in the OP are a fringe group. Something like most of the ANTIFA groups.

Pretending that these people are representative of "the Left" or of Democrats or of liberals is asinine however.

Some of you are sooo offended if you feel like you're lumped in with Nazis, White Supremacists, KKK etc.

Yet, here you are claiming that these knuckleheads are "the left."

Hypocrites.


You see, here is the problem.... If you see some so called "right wing supremacist group" intimidating people, threatening people, talking crap on TV, hell even marching, WE DENOUNCE THEM!

Massively denounce their hateful ignorance. Republicans denounce them at every turn. Besides a few like minded @sshats talking smack on the internet, the largest % of we "righties" cannot stand those POS's and scream it to the roof-tops.

How many prominent Democrats are denouncing Antifa? Is Bernie out there publicly denouncing these @sshats?

No. And the mainline Democrats are usually quite silent as well.

That is the main difference and their silence indicates consent. (sure, you might find a couple of examples but be real, you are not going to find and overwhelming consensus against radicals on the left like you find on the right and that is a fact).

Oh give us a break. I watched many people here "on the right" duck and weave for weeks over what happened in Charlottesville and over and over and over.

You're propagandizing, and you're not stating the facts. Republicans COVER for these hate groups. Remember, your hero, President Trump? "There are good people on both sides."

And on, and on and on.

As you are so fond of saying ...

The KKK was simply a group that persuaded people to not vote Republican after the Civil War because of Reconstruction Era hardships. That they aggressively campaigned that message with certain voting blocks gave them a bad rap. Slogans like Vote DNC or hang from a tree were never written down.

Just because Adolf Hitler was a Democratic Socialist and did bad things is no reason to expect DSA might go around and do bad things like disrupting lives at dinner time. Or blame a large segment of the population with different politcal views for inadequacies with their own lives that make them angry and frustrated.

Just go to your local public high school or publically funded college and ask if you can sit in and audit a class on Revisionist History. It’s educational after all and you might get as smart as them.

While you're lecturing on revisionism ... you might want to remind the class that after the late 1960s and 70s that the tradtional SOUTHERN Democrats all became Republicans, eh? Surely you remember Lee Atwater, right?

I'm sure your next lecture will be on Regionalism and Racism, right? LOL.

I could have sworn Hitler was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei right?

Does that translate to Democratic Socialist now?

I call your Bullsnip:

Republicans denounce bigotry after Trump's latest Charlottesville remarks
www.theguardian.com...

www.vox.com...




For context, keep in mind that these are not backbench Republicans. They’re well-known and influential players in Republican politics. They’re also not reflexive critics; they’ve defended Trump in the past. From this perspective, it’s a big deal to see senators buck their party leader so forcefully.

Still, their obvious statements against neo-Nazis shouldn’t normally look like an act of political courage. They are telling Trump that he needs to call today’s events for what they are: an act of domestic terrorism by white supremacists and white nationalists.


www.cnn.com...

www.mycentraljersey.com...


And there are thousands more stories of GOP condemning these @sshats.


Google Republicans denounce Charlottesville... see what you get for the first few pages

Now, Google Democrats who denounce Antifa for example..... Now see what you get for the first few pages

.....

Oh, Pelosi condemned the violence of an Antifa Berkely rally once. But wow... not much condemning coming from the Dems.

You will usually only see the Dems "condemn violence" after the fact.

I notice that your citations are not condemning Nazis and White Supremacists ...

... is that an oversight?

I did find one part interesting though ...




They are telling Trump that he needs to call today’s events for what they are: an act of domestic terrorism by white supremacists and white nationalists.


DId the President ever get around to that?

Did I miss it?

Your Republican buddies are talking out of both sides of their mouths, like all my Democratic buddies (that I actually find to be a bunch of f-ing idiots).

Imagine that.

Hell no, I condemn the $hit out them! I thought that would be obvious. I condemn all Authoritarian groups who would use force and intimidation (including the power of government) for or to achieve their political goals and limit mine and your freedoms. I am quite Liberal / Libertarian when it comes to freedom.

Some people see the word Socialist in the name and read no further, taking it at face value.

A socialist is a socialist, right? lol

I was thinking my next lecture should be how the President removing a four star general (a rank that can’t be freely given by the Pentagon and actually requires an act of Congress) from command of a theater of operations in an active war zone because he might have leaked details of the Benghazi event to a presidential candidate that dared mention them in the second debate was a good thing.

The intensive investigation that resulted in his firing proves prior existence of the Deep State and evidence of political weaponization of the intelligence community by the Obama administration. Any bets on familiar names involved?

But a compare and contrast of 60’s and 70’s racial relations to today’s might be interesting. Especially the section on Democrat Party operatives and players. Might segue nicely with an old short lecture on Presidential Impeachments and Hillary’s participation. But those are 300 level courses in Republican History, I only did the 101 course in Revionist History as a favor because the dean has been on a sky screaming sabbatical since mid-fall of 2016.

Nazis were national socialists meaning they believe businesses work for the good of the state. Biggest difference is they put the needs of the state above the individual. Even a democratic socialist the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the state. What these 2 have in common is they both redistribute wealth just ts different things. Where capitalists believe that individuals should accumulate wealth and personal ownership.

That aside though communists and Nazis will have many similarities like both condone the use of force to create social change. Both believe capitalism is evil this was part of Hitler's war on the Jews. It was over Jews controlling the banking industry. A claim you still see socialists make today and led to the purges by stallin.
