If you start getting into this whole "left" vs "right" thing, you are really just a sucker. You're letting a divide-and-conquer strategy distract you from what's going on. The democratic and republican party in the US are working together to control you all, and you are playing right into it.

The elites on both sides are sitting there and laughing about how easy it is to manipulate you, and laughing all the way to the bank I may add.

Good job (sarcasm), you fail.

I would've agreed until this new socialist wing of the Democratic party emerged. Turning a blind eye to what they're working towards would be a mistake. Anyone that values the Constitution and their way of life realizes that this is not the "left wing and right wing of the same bird" arguement of the past.

YESSSSSSSS thank you.

Lots of others on the webernet of things are saying it too, meanwhile everyone I run into day to day are utterly blind to how they are being taken advantage of regardless and have been for ages.

Lets learn from the past for once, try and create a better future.

The media is a tool of the government. Fox News is a mouthpiece of Trump and the elite.

Notice how Fox News, especially Tucker Carlson, always keep repeating the terms, "left", "liberal", and "Democratic socialism"? They are trying to splinter you into seeing the world as black and white, binary reality.

I think that this is true to a point.

There is an establishment cabal that I think most political leaders belong to, regardless of party.

It’s not just politics, it’s also identity politics along racial, religious, and gender lines.

Only a liberal controlling a fake right-wing bot would say that.


But, yeah I agree 100%


We are screwed.


"You're either with us, or against us against you"

I'll check them out, glad you commented like such. We have a lot of great potential with the democracy we have set up currently, and if we use it properly as citizens it can be good. We're just... not. Mostly due to how information is distributed and repressed but still..

And, much of the left is doing the same with calling everyone Nazis, white nationalists, etc. further, they are trying to frame virtually everything they disagree with as “whiteness” or “toxic masculinity.”

You are stating the obvious to any conspiracy-minded ATS member, but fail to provide any relevant information to those who need it the most.

I suggest you read up on the Progressive movement.

You are correct, but not how you think.

You mean the SJWs and Antifa? Who honestly cares about them? The only people who actually care are working at Fox News.

I suggest you read up on the war on drugs and war on terrorism and Cold War, largely led by right wing rhetoric.

You seem to labor under the illusion that this is just a left wing thing, just as left thinks right wing is evil.

That’s what this thread is about brah.

Except now such rhetoric is being spouted across mainstream media, by political leaders, in liberal orgs, and college campuses. I work in mostly liberal NGOs and gov agencies. That perspective is no longer in the fringe, it’s a majority in American liberalism.

I’m around it ALL the time including friends and colleagues.

You are simply being dishonest if you claim it’s only a few people.

The media for two years has been spouting such hysteria.

Also, it does matter because now we have fake hoaxes such as Jussie in Chicago and all these leaders clambering to virtue signal, the Covington kids being harassed by adults along racial lines and then getting visciously attacked by the media getting death threats, etc etc.

I’m happy to talk about right wing issues too. Point is stop pretending the current mainstream left is pure and holy.

To the "educated". It is not,.. that you are "right" or "left". But more for the knowledge of, if you are, right or wrong? Which shouldn't need a "degree" to "know", or figure out... Evil ideology trains/educates evil. When you fugure that out? You'll understand who "passes out" the "certification" of "education"... "Titles" don't mean sh*t to free men and women.

Well then you'd have to give me examples of the left-wing mainstream spreading the narrative that the right-wing is bad, full of white supremacists and Nazis, the narrative of "whiteness" and "toxic masculinity". And yes I am aware of the Gillette short video, which ironically has been pumped into oblivion by Fox News as "proof" that the entire left thinks every man exhibit toxic masculinity.

You can’t be serious. Do you live in the US and pay attention? I apologize if I assumed you did. But even most liberals acknowledge these topics and themselves bring them up regularly.

I even have worked in social justice extensively. A lot of us talk about how sjws are everywhere now.

There have been likely hundreds of examples of what you are asking on this site alone, let alone larger ones from twitter to Reddit. There are a number of big sub Reddit’s dedicated just to cataloguing examples.

Please don’t be absurd. I’m going to be frank. I think you are lying.
