When right-wingers protest, such as at the Tea-Party, they protest peacefully, holding up pickets or eating hot dogs or engaging in debate. When left-wingers protest, they riot, shout, throw tantrums, commit acts of violence, vandalize cars and buildings, assault police. Why is that so?

I wont pass judgement on which type of protest is better or worse, but I´ll say that right/left are really two different worlds with two totally different brains.Of course progressives learn from their heroes and literature. These are some Che Guevara quotes that reveal a mentality that could easily incite violence.

“A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate"

"What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.”

"Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier in an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary.”

"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary … These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution!”

“If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot.”

"if Christ himself stood in my way I would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”

“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”

In these quotes you find the usual liberal ideology..no to law and order, no to civilized debate, no to christianity, yes to anger.

Not only the old left communicates violently, modern "liberals" continue the tradition. These are some quotes by well-known democrats and liberals about Sarah Palin:

"what I feel for her privately could be described as violent, nay, murderous, rage. When Palin spoke on Wednesday night, my . almost exploded from the incandescent anger boiling in my skull". - Jessica Grose

"If Palin ever visited New York, she would be “gang-raped by my big black brothers". - Jessica Bernhard

"Palin is a f***cking retard" - Stephen Colbert

"small towns, that’s the part of the country she really likes going to because that’s the pro-America part of the country. You know, I just want to say to her, just very quickly: F***ck you" - John Steward

"Sanctimonious, holier than thou, exploitative, undignified, pedantic, childish, self-inflicting, insipid, backwards, embarrassing, over-reactive, overreaching, or as Peggy Noonan summed it up, with the succinctness I have obviously long since abandoned — yammering". - Keith Olbermann

Discuss: How should we deal with the hate? How should we deal with rioting protestors? Is violence a legitimate means of protest?

In my view more is destroyed with rage than achieved.

Maybe we should ban all left wing protest, rule with an iron fist or just shoot left wing protesters on sight, we cant have the masses getting angry now can we? We need to keep them in their place.

The idea of protesting is to challenge the government and the status quo not to be co opted in to the government to carry on the same dance. TPTB arn't scared of people eating hotdogs and chanting for more corporate greed. They are scared by an angry populace who take to the street with rage. How far you think the people of Tunisia would have gotten eating hotdogs and waving banners. If they had the opportunity to eat hotdogs like Americans, they wouldnt feel such a need to protest with full bellies. What has the Tea Party achieved? You got more right wingers in the white house who will just continue to play the same game as the ones they replaced. The rich will get richer the poor poorer, the merry dance will continue, but at least you get your hotdogs.

left wingers are those that see oppression around them and bottle up the rage until it all comes out at once in an uncontrollable spout of aggression. i also think those che quotes are missing a bit around them and some have been translated out of context as in cuba they often let those who fought against the socialist government out of prison after only a short stretch and spies do not seem to get shot or locked away forever like in other nations but maybe castro is a big softy and che was a hardlined guy who loved killing, although with their record on putting forward international human rights laws and che's work for the un, i would say that they were both looking to help people and they were both probably somewhere in the middle as they were both soldiers but not without emotion.

I am a liberal.
I do not think of Che Guevara as a role model.
I am more than happy to debate in a peaceful and rational manner.
I understand that Stewart and Colbert are comedians. Olbermann is a pundit. He gets paid to be sensational. Just like the right wing pundits do.
I do not intend to vote for Sarah Palin regardless of her politics. She quit her job as Governor and pursued a television and public speaking job. She abandoned voters to make money.
I do not attend riots or engage in criminal activities. I love my community and do my utmost to be a contributing and upstanding member of it.

Just wanted to throw out a few facts so that you might see the errors that get made when folks paint with such wide brushes.

In the other thread about the child rape, you actually had a valid point about the consequences of liberal ideologies, and the OP brought up a valid point. In this thread you show your blind hatred of liberals like a blind ideologue.

Have you ever attended right-wing and left-wing protests? I have. They are two different worlds. Im just trying to find out what motivates the left to conduct themselves the way they do.

Its good to see people who are not frothing-at-the-mouth in blind rage. I trust there are plenty of your kind out there.

I believe in non-violence, but when I was younger...

The bottom line in the U.S. is that leftie protests are against their oppressors, while rightie protests are for the oppressors. Of course the righties are not violent, they are not actually fighting anyone.

Of course this could work differently, in different places or circumstances. For example, the pro-Mubarak thugs turning the Egypt protest into a street war (they were the right wingers in that situation).

The Teabaggers are an interesting group, and their protests, though relatively non-violent, carry potential violence in the form of assassination and anarchy as a threat on display (open carry of guns, all the "targeting talk, etc.). But the Teabaggers are, in essence, Confederates, and the Civil War was nothing if not a hard right rebellion against a government that was, for its day, liberal.

An Israeli professor just suggested the other day the Egyptian tyrants commit a Tienanmen square on the protestors...
That would indicate it is the US supported government that has a peace treaty with Israel, and is only in power because of these foreign influences, is so left as to be communist.
Tienanmen square is as communist a solution as you can get.

That would mean the protestors are in the right.

As to the political use of the terms as opposed to the moral use of the word "right"...
Labeling political statements by such Hegelian terms as left and right has been shown to be a completely totalitarian brainwashing concept desiged to prevent independent thought.

No. But the folks mentioned in the OP are pretty upset:

Ok I am with you on this, if by eating hotdogs you mean they carry loaded weapons. By protest peacefully you mean they spit on the coffins of returning dead soldiers. And then by debate you mean call anyone who opposes them a Nazi or a Communist...



Of course progressives learn from their heroes and literature.
Well if we continue the polarizing logic of the OP, I guess this means that RightWingers simply don't read or learn.





By the way(soapbox moment)...I hate when people try to jam Progressives in with the Left-Wing. True Progressives want advancement and development. Hence the root word progress.

The Left Wing is not progressive. It is the same as the Right Wing. They both want to keep the status quo. That is why this thread/discussion is useless. It will never lead anywhere except more finger pointing and derogatory flaming, and that is exactly what TPTB want.

Look, let me put it this way... If 2 carpenters argue all day about the length of a piece wood, then no progress gets accomplished on the house being constructed.

They engage in violence because they view violence as a legitimate political tool.

Everything the State does, it must first engage in violence to accomplish.

If a bureaucrat wants to create a subclass of welfare mothers who are dependent upon the State, he must first wage war against the producers of society to take their wealth from them before that wealth can then be given to the dependent class.

The government has no wealth of its own. It only has what it can violently loot from the productive members of society.

Just throwing this out there, because "you" decided to use labels...Maybe most if not all of those "on the left", are in all actuality fed up, "free roaming wage slaves". Not sure, just cant discount the possibilty.
