Anyone who uses the term "Liberal" today is totally out of touch. There are no liberals. There are libertarians, right and left, and then there are the fascist Progressive/Leftist Cultural Marxists like the "Squad". People who call themselves "Liberals" are phonies trying to occupy some moral high ground as they virtue signal with labels.


There are as many right wing nutjobs and most of them aren't in college. The far right has some real creatures to go along with the antifa nuts. The difference is antifa can hang around radical college professors. And the far right folks are out in the hills mostly keeping to themselves until this new instagram reddit era of propaganda wars.

Not sure you understand what virtue signaling is.

I would call people beating others in public whatever they believe for the sake of a movement nutjobs.

Apparently simple observation are virtue signaling to you.

Well it depends on what you classify as hard right extremists...

The average republican/conservative elected or not thinks...

All abortions should be illegal..

Laws based on Christianity ( they are not cool with any law based on Christianity.. I’m not trying to over hype this one..) are perfectly ok..


All people caught here illegally should be deported..


That all the media is in a vast conspiracy to hurt conservatives..

Climate change is a hoax..

They believe in satanic cults..

Exc.. exc..



The policy positions the conservatives pretend “the left” or democrats have, no one of any authority , nor is it the average view..


No one wants to ban all the guns and confiscate he rest..

No one wants abortion till the last second..


No one wants illegal aliens that are violent criminals..

No one thinks there are not biological differences between men and women..



EVERY single conservative position, that I can think of at the moment, is arguing a point that no one is saying..


Why??

Because they lose the argument if they talk about the actual proposal..

....not sure how to break this to you, but the OP is about left/right, not what liberalism is. At no point in your precious encylopedic definition does it categorize liberalism on the left.

The point that you somehow missed is that those views expressed in the encyclopedia are now right wing views.

The poster said, "virtue signal with labels". Nobody said anything about public beatings. Except you. You did however throw out a good batch of labels. That's my observation anyway.

Doesn't matter who said it. Can you refute what was said?


Everything the left is doing is FAR LEFT-WING,not "right-wing," but in today's "progressive world" up is down and down is up...

Did you even read it?


I did.

Its nice to see though that the right are now turning to "Zuby" for lessons on political ideological philosophy. So I will give you that.


Are you so dense that you don't understand the satire in the tweets that you so assuredly posted in your OP?!?!


Are you so dense that you think I am the OP of this thread?!?!?!


My apologies.
I made an assumption based off of your history and made a post in haste(pun intended.)

I showed my ass.
Carry on.

Not a bad idea if they would listen to intelligent Rappers though.

Not sure if you understand dialogue but if you address a post I made a d choose to ignore the content it's a fallacy.

If you want to use virtue signaling as a wide open statement then any attempt to explain pleasure or displeasure of any aspect of society is virtue signaling.

Including any comment in this thread. You pointing out virtue signaling would in fact be virtue signaling.

Hopefully in 2019 we can say antifa folks ruining property and beating reporters are extreme and so are white supremacists who feel this is their moment. These two moronic ideas like to meet up in portland to decide who's extreme version of America should be forced on all Americans.

America has always been great. There isn't a nation on earth that hasn't made unforgivable mistakes. We have the ability to change even if it's slow and move forward.

Whether its trump who hates how America has become or Omar who wants to make it her version of truth neither accepts we are just a country of different opinions and that is ok. No need to force anything.

Carl Marx is the father of modern socialism, many of the social and economic policies of the modern political left can be traced back to his writings.

in today's political climate he would be denounced as being a member of the far right if he appeared to support any kind of immigration reform. Showing how the words have been misused by the modern left.

Aha. But... but... but whatabout....
whatabout Liebknecht, Luxemburg and Bakunin?

Hypothetically speaking, eh?
No. He was very aware of the divisions we see up to this day.


And most important of all! Every industrial and commercial centre in England now possesses a working class divided into two hostile camps, English proletarians and Irish proletarians. The ordinary English worker hates the Irish worker as a competitor who lowers his standard of life. In relation to the Irish worker he regards himself as a member of the ruling nation and consequently he becomes a tool of the English aristocrats and capitalists against Ireland, thus strengthening their domination over himself. He cherishes religious, social, and national prejudices against the Irish worker. His attitude towards him is much the same as that of the “poor whites” to the Negroes in the former slave states of the U.S.A. The Irishman pays him back with interest in his own money. He sees in the English worker both the accomplice and the stupid tool of the English rulers in Ireland.

This antagonism is artificially kept alive and intensified by the press, the pulpit, the comic papers, in short, by all the means at the disposal of the ruling classes. This antagonism is the secret of the impotence of the English working class, despite its organization. It is the secret by which the capitalist class maintains its power. And the latter is quite aware of this.
