Lol, you are the spokesmen for the left?

Don't you live in another country?


Yeah, he lives outside of your centre of the universe... He couldn't possibly have any idea what his talking about, right?


Right!

Well I am left-handed too and am sick of all the right-handedness in the world. You ever try to find used golf-clubs? Dang near impossible. And dont get me started on notebooks with those stupid rings on the wrong side.
Anyway, I best go back and read the OP now.


I used to be left handed, too... When I went to Kindergarten in 1984, the teachers would make me write right handed. I still kick with my left foot though.

The American Left is different than the UK Left so your post is 100% correct.

Go live in LA for a year and then you can write this again.


UK left is much further to the left than US left. US left is further to the right than UK center.

Again, why do you not belittle the Jewish religion the same as you did Christians?



I am Christian, I oppose abortion, I also oppose anti-Semitism.

What the hell are you getting at with this utter rubbish?


From your OP:


We will endeavour to treat you lot of scumbags with the kindness we expect from you.

We would like to add more but we are all now running late for your annual blood sacrifice of the straight white guy.

Yours kindly,

The left


So you are Christian yet you mock your own religion? Christian and against abortion yet support the Left where abortion is a major platform of theirs?

You have no substance, you care about nothing, you stand for nothing.

Do not call the right scumbags and expect normal discourse. You came here planning to trigger the Right because that is the way you want to see them. You are trying to project on the Right all of the Lefts shortcomings and your own as well.

We will not have it. We are done compromising with imbeciles. The Right won the election, Trump is POTUS, we now have a constitutional conservative leaning supreme court with another appointment likely as well. The Right will hold the Senate, possibly even the House. And that matters to the whole world, it changes course in politics in the whole world. Every nation has a right to its sovereignty and that is against the globalist agenda so they are trying to twist nationalism into racism when it has nothing to do with it.

But go ahead and revote Brexit, hope staying in the EU works out well for you. We could care less what you guys do over there in your own country.

You don't get it do you?

Well since it seems quite obvious that British sarcasm and self deprecating humor seems to go over your head I will try to explain things to you a little more bluntly.

This thread has nothing to do with religion regardless of how you chose to interpret it.

Now the point is quite simple, this thread is a satirical expression of the way in which some of the right like to speak about the left as if the left is just one big group that all believe the same thing and have no individuality. You inadvertently in your hate filled rant against me demonstrate this point perfectly. You assume that because I lean left I must therefore support Abortion and be anti-Christian due to some wired preconceived views you have about what everyone one the left believe. As if everyone on the left believe the same thing, you ignore that left vs right politics is not black and white. Its called a spectrum for a reason and much like I believe that you don't have of the all of the same views everyone who voted for Trump, I do not hold every view that those on the left may have. I am a individual.

Now as for this frankly pathetic point you make.



You have no substance, you care about nothing, you stand for nothing.



Let me tell you something, I am just like you, I eat, sleep, piss and love just like you do and hell I might even be praying the same way you do. We just happen to have different political views. I do not pretend that because you have different views from me that you have no substance, care about nothing and stand for nothing, I just simply acknowledge that you have a different set of political beliefs.

Again another point of the thread that you have missed.

This hate you express isn't very Christian in my view, you would do well to think before you respond.

Your humor was not self depricating, it was condescending and arrogant. I guess British sense of humor is arrogant and not funny.

Nothing I said was hate filled, I just call it exactly how you come off so maybe you should learn from that.

You are the one that opened up calling the Right scumbags. Do you not take accountability for that?

Again you really seem to be struggling with this concept of sarcasm and satire.

I wasn't actually calling anyone scumbags just like I wasn't actually saying Trump was Satan or that I was about to head of and sacrifice a white dude.

And yeah you went into a hate filled tirade against me because you just didn't get it, not only that but it was all pretty uncalled for.

I know you're new round these parts but really just take a deep breath and take the time to actually read and understand what is being said.

After 6 pages you don't get it from all the responses. People did not like your smug sense of humor.

You go to common Leftist tactic calling my words hate filled but it is you who crafted your post to trigger the response you were hoping for.

I am not amused by you nor are many others.
I am not new around here either, i was on this board since a decade ago under another user name.

Last, what you said about you being like me. No, we are nothing alike.

Now to be fair quite a few have said they found it funny or agree with what I am saying.

But you, Dude you didn't get it, so went off on me with some rant about me being anti-Christian and supporting abortion.

I point out this is utter rubbish and rather than apologies for making such outlandish remarks you just keep digging the hole.

Carry on though.

Which funnily enough was one of the points of the OP, a point that seems to be lost on Strate8

I think that the media, and each variation there of is the real problem. Use to be 4 newscast a day, morning, noon, evening, and late. Now it's 24/7


Once upon a time, before cable television, there were only a handful of television networks broadcast through the airwaves. CBS, NBC, ABC etc.

And in order for the Federal Government to grant them license to use those airwaves, they were required to have news broadcast once a day. Usually around 5PM or 6PM.

This was called a "loss leader" because it was NOT PROFITABLE, but required and it "Led" into "Primetime" shows at 7PM that did make money for the networks.

You used to be able to turn the "dial" from ABC to CBS to NBC at 5 or 6 o'clock and pretty much see the same news delivered in the same way.

THEN CAME CABLE TV...At the time people thought MTV was going to be the end of civilization.
When in reality it was that lesser known experimental 24/7 news channel that changed the world.
It was slow going at first, but then the Iraq War came (the first one - yes there was two!)
And CNN took off. People couldn't peel themselves away. People were actually recording CNN with VHS tapes while they were at work! The first war ..LIVE...Real-time on TV!

Then came everybody else chasing that money. News broadcasts were no longer an obligation to be met in order to broadcast money makers like Cheers, news became a PROFIT CENTER!
And hey, if you are going to make money, you need advertisers!
Advertisers want to know their products are being seen by the right demographic, so naturally you need to tweak your viewership by appealing to the right kinds of people for your advertisers!
It starts with just a little "opinion news" to reel in people who buy Viagra or need a new anti-depressant etc.
Before you know it, your boring old news caster of 1989 is replaced with a guy shouting the sky is falling or telling you exactly what you want to believe! Don't change that channel! We will be right back after these messages from our sponsor!

Yeah but I actually kind of find it funny when they don't quite get it.

Granted only a couple of members who the joke seems totally lost on but when they miss it!

...people need to stop voting with their hearts and start voting with their heads. Consider what would help the entire population and your family. Some would remember spocks dying words or start screaming 'leftist lunatics!' the choice is up to you people.


What if 'they' held an election and nobody came?

True. Americans are generally speaking not very good with irony.

Trouble is, you Yanks have a system that gave you a choice between Trump or Clinton. Something wrong there, surely?

You two can go pat yourselves on the tush all you want doesn't change what is happening.

The Left is losing in the arena of ideas. They went all in against Trump which is not a good thing since he is POTUS and they are losing. They keep escalating and losing even more and are getting shown as bordering mentally unstable with their unhinged attacks.

The Right did not go so full retard against Obama, they accepted their loss and grudgingly took it and tried to steer course when they could. They were not openly hostile and calling for opposition at all levels against everything.

Now you guys are trying to play damage control. Hey, no hard feelings, we're just like you. No you are not. It is very apparent by the contrast in our words and attitudes that we are not alike. You stand for something entirely different than what I stand for. You have an entirely different view of the world and society than I do.

You speak English but it is the queen's english. I speak American english and it is more abrupt and to the point.

I was about to leave this poor attempt at damage control by the esteemed leader of the Left but, I'm curious...

What is this "otherising" you speak of in your own words?

You sure about that because they claimed that his wife was a man, he was having a homosexual affair and lets not forget that embarrassment that was the "Birther movement".

So much hate though in your posts dude, just chill out, have a beer sit down with us we can have a chat.

I am not American. I understand British humour, our gift of self denigration and use of satire to organise and express complex information.

The left/right paradigm is completely false. But polarisation of the electorate is useful to those that seek to deflect public attention away from the growth of corporate fascism and the inexorable march toward war.
