Obama is not left-wing, just because someone said he is.

You obviously have no idea what left-wing is.




Obviously!


How is a person to keep up with all of the nuances of the left?

I’m sorry my definition of left wing doesn’t correspond with yours but I sure know one when I spot’em!!

the real left-wing which is anti-statist.


Someone want to point out the "anti-statists" in Washington ?

I don't see any maybe they should stop calling themselves left wingers/liberals.

Rich people have too much money -Government needs to take it--Right wing
People have too many guns- Government needs to take them---Right wing.

Do people really think Archie Bunker was left wing liberal?

It was comedy folks, not reality.

No wonder you are all so confused if this is how you educate yourselves.


The problem is that perception becomes reality. The reality of Carroll O'Connor's legacy is that he will forever be remembered as being a bigot. Even if he didn't sincerely feel that way, he did nothing to shed that image and he certainly never spoke up on issues of racial equality.

You've been distinguishing yourself from the religious right as of late, should we ignore that there's a difference between center and right and far right? Should we call anyone center of Right, Fascists or Nazi's now?

I won't actually play tit for tat, just trying to make a point... I respect many Conservative views and individuals far too much to do them such a disservice as to dismiss the entire Right as one category.

They call themselves Liberals and Progressives, not Leftists and neither ideology is anti-statist... both are authoritarian just like Conservatives.

To the vocal left, we’re all the same. As a matter of fact, it suits their agenda to intentionally blur the line and call us all "the right."

I’ve made that distinction before but I certainly don’t expect the left to.

Point taken.

Then I want to know they they call themselves liberal clearly they are not they are not anti statist.,

Then I want to know why the call themselves progessives since they push the same asinine ideology year after year, decade after decade, and have for over 100 years.

Nothing new among that lot as per the op among many other examples.

Where is this vocal Left besides a tiny fraction (by which I mean like 5) of posters on ATS? You get a fair few on other sites and the internet in general. But I don't see any such group labeling that you are talking about. Leftists tend to be very, very clear and distinguishing when they are referring to people, either individually or in plural.

Uhm...the entire democrat congressional body, the Obama administration, the entire MSM, etc.

None of them make any distinction about the right....we're all the same.

Romney, Ron Paul, Santorum....they're all the same, right? I can't tell you how many times they called Romney a conservative!

Way to go not categorizing the left as all the same.

Am I mistaken or did they not all run for the Republican ticket?

Does that not make them De Facto Conservatives?

As I said what vocal Left? Obama isn't Left, Democrats in general aren't Left, they are Liberal or Progressive typically. So you've got Liberals which occupy center, some are dead center, some are right of center, some are left of center and then you have Progressives who are also pretty center. Most people that consider themselves Conservative are also center. The media isn't anything but Corporate and politics sells.

The statement that there is no Left in American politics is 100% true. There are no Socialists, it's practically an oxy-moron to say there is a Socialist politician in America... or anywhere for that matter.

Kali, your personal labels and nuances make it completely impossible to talk about this with you.

The majority of the country knows damn well what I’m talking about, what John Wayne was talking about, what neo is talking about, what the OP is talking about, etc.

You either have an agenda and are purposely muddying the water or you really need to a new eye prescription because you obviously aren’t seeing what the majority of the country is seeing.

Really? You mean the majority of the country just starred this thread? That's interesting.

Plenty of people were angry at liberals during Wayne's era. You know, with their desegregation and woman's rights? You know? Because everything was just fine before these changes. Minorities knew their place, right? I'm sure you're right on level with John Wayne.

Like Obama and the gang? You guys can throw around all the labels you’d like but all of you can drop the self-righteous attitudes because you’re as guilty of playing sides as anyone. Looks like a lot of back-patting going on.
