So a jerk was nominated into office.


Do we eliminate, abolish elections?

Yep.

Clearly they don't think very much of a liberal democracy.

The only outcome they prefer is just them in power.

that's kind of why I asked. We have a system in place to make things happen as we want. If things happen that we don't want, it's our job to change the system so it does work like we want. Sure we can cry and throw tantrums, but that never offers any real solutions.

What productive thing can we as a society do to make sure that people some of the left doesn't like, don't get elected?

Well, I'd say meeting with a bigot or defending him is a notch better than being one. Otherwise we should call out many posters in this thread, too.


That is definitely true

However, many of these Farrakhan liking democrats have said things that are bigoted as well

But even aside from that, you are right that proportionality matters

So merely having a bigot as your mentor or friend and advocating policies he favors is not as bad as being a bigot

However, having a person connected with the republicans winning a state primary and being condemned by the republicans seems to a big notch better than having people at the highest level of the democrats be connected to far worse bigots and not having the democrats condemn them

The thing is there have been multiple studies looking at the same thing. Hell, even the Daily Caller found that Right Wing extremists were responsible for 92% of all "ideologically motivated homicide incidents" between 2007 and 2016.

This isn't just one study showing Right Wing extremism is more dangerous than Left Wing extremism. It's pretty much every study. So you can brush off one because you don't like their methodology but I can keep providing more.

Sounds like this republican would feel rather at home in the British Labour party.

On his Monday morning radio show, Steve West promotes fanatical conspiracies about “Jewish cabals” that are “harvesting baby parts” through Planned Parenthood, that torture and molest children and that run the Republican Party.

On Tuesday he won the Republican primary for a Clay County seat in the Missouri House by nearly 25 points.

“Looking back in history, unfortunately, Hitler was right about what was taking place in Germany. And who was behind it,” West said on a show on KCXL radio on Jan. 23, 2017.

West won the 15th District nomination in a four-candidate race. Besides his radio show, he also has a YouTube channel and a website. Donning a wig and fake beard and calling himself Jack Justice, he has unleashed an array of bigotry including homophobia, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and outright racism.

Throughout this election cycle we have seen a number of white supremacists/neo-Nazis running on the Republican ticket. From Arthur Jones in Illinois, to Patrick Little in California, and now Steve West in Missouri. While Little lost his primary and Jones ran unopposed in his, things were a lot more disturbing in Missouri. West ran against three other people and managed to take almost 50% of the vote.

While the GOP publicly denounced West it is clear that didn't matter to the people actually voting.

Just like every other time we have seen one of these cases come up I have to ask: Are there really this many people supportive of white supremacist/neo-Nazi ideology or are there simply this many people that are completely uninformed when it comes to voting? In the end either answer spells big trouble for this country.

Do they consider Islamic terror left wing?

And why do all of the studies you post tart after September 11 2001?

Any reason that date is passed over?

Who we elect is often a reflection of the people that vote for them.

If you have a population of racists, they will elect a racist to represent them.

If you have a population of idiots, you might find an idiot representing them.

Statistically, the 3000 deaths from 9/11 is an outlier. Most terrorist attacks only kill single digits or 10's of people. That may have something to do with not including it since statistical analysts tend to discard outliers as they skew averages and results.

No. I don't believe anyone has said such or implied such a thing and I'm not sure why you took it to such an extreme, dramatic end.

Well then they are wrong to claim right wing extremism causes more death

Ignoring the largest incident by far because it is an outlier and then claiming the right wing is a bigger problem is merely done for political posturing

For example, the meager amount of “extremism” deaths mentioning Ned in those studies are in themselves outliers when looked at compared to all violent deaths, the majority of which are from inner city murders

Maybe the voters aren't racist, or dumb, maybe they are merely voting for the least onerous choice?

After all, there is such idiotic hysteria about calling people racist these days that I would bet a large number of people no longer care about it when voting.
Look at the Boris Johnson thing, comparing women in burka to letterboxes and bank robbers. You want to bet he won't get reelected?
No one cares outside of special interest groups and squealing metropolitan media types.

Do a search on articles abolishing elections.

You might accidently educate yourself.

Why do people insist on believing everything they read in the Daily Mail?

The British Labour party is not anti-semitic.

They are being accused of being anti-semitic by a few powerful jewish organisations because Corbyn is within spitting distance of becoming the next PM, and Corbyn is committed to finding a peaceful solution to the Palistinian crisis, which will involve Israel having to give up the occupied territories.

So rather than having to do that, the state of Israel is attempting to smear the Labour party and influence British politics on a scale that is really quite terrifying. Basically what the Jewish Council is saying is they want to pick our next PM, and he'd better be friendly to the current Israeli regime or else.

Islamic terror is generally categorized separately. I'm guessing due to the fact that it is religiously motivated, not politically. Also the fact that most perpetrators are foreign nationals.

I'm guessing the reason most studies focus on post-9/11 is due to what Krazyshot said. It's a huge outlier.

I didn't say that in any way. I was simply pointing out to WarPig that the Right are in fact more dangerous than the Left.

But outside of that ONE event, right wing extremists kill more people in the Europe and the US than Muslim extremists (technically that comparison is irrelevant anyways since Muslim extremists are also right wing, but that is a topic for a different conversation and these statistics are making a distinction between the two). So it makes sense to ignore the outlier. It isn't entirely honest, but you get a better picture of how terrorism and extremism works in the country.

Well, I can do a search on just about anything and find someone saying something.

Again, no one has said or implied any such thing in this case.

Perhaps you should do a search on "drama queens".
