The extreme left are a filthy virus, we must be the cure who saves the nation #RiseUp #TruePatriotism #Nationalist

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

And this **** is how you get bombs mailed to prominent left-wing politicians.

 

Ted Kaczynski did nothing wrong....except write down the return address.

LOL!!!

 

 

Well one thing we can all agree on, is the fact that extreme leftist (aka liberals) dictating what we do, trying to manipulate us with their fake news or alternative facts. They're basically modern day nazis and to compare them with such is rightfully so - we all have anyway at one point or another.

One thing I sort of learned from this new right wave is their focus on facts and how they say that statistically the most successful revolutions were peaceful ones. Seems like in all of a decade from debating the Left (whose stance is mired in emotion) that they have forgone an appeal to the public's pathos and focused on the logos. Which bodes well for politics as it forms a platform for the party. It is also those appeals to emotion that have driven them to become more cynical and to analyze before deciding.

My point is that throwing tantrums and threats is just falling into the left's tactics and completely ignoring the appeal of the right; specially during these times. Its why I dislike emotional outburst when it comes and lazy thinking to politics. You're never going to win the moral high ground by asking for murder, not in modern times at least and that is a good thing up to a point.

I'll be honest, I feel like these bombs probably came from someone who either really hates the establishment DNC and is a super far lefty. Or is from some super supporter that wanted a harmless but threatening gesture to drum up a particular expedient party narrative at a critical moment.

 

I just don't see this coming from someone on the right. I don't think they would connect those targets as being the one's that would engender the desired emotional shading. Politically it would backfire for someone on the right.

You assume the person is operating rationally.

So we (as in you and I or EVERYONE) live in a world where total freedom is manipulated by restriction of the liberals, where leftists think it's okay to invade on private properties and shout death threats because they have freedom of speech. Always found the hypocrisy strange among the leftists, they are "free to" say whatever they please but whenever a non-leftist or someone disagrees with them - even excluding politics, then that person is wrong or should somehow feel they do not have that same freedom. It goes to show how weak the argument really is. And while I'm not on the right, even I can acknowledge this.

 

Ahhhh...

 

 

 

Yes,

 

we are free to believe what you want to believe but just because we believe something, doesn't make it real. Sadly, this is also a world which neglects common sense and mistakes truth for ignorance. Need I say more? Just waiting for that one person with a snarky response now that tries to make me sound like a looney, just don't forget the "huehue XD" at the end hehe :)

 

If you want a libertarian/socialist country, you are in the wrong place. There will be a constant civil war which spans hundreds of years before we ever got to that point.

 

And hear hear...

 

Yes, we want this for our kids :lol:

Nearly all domestic terrorism these days is right wing. Also, 'harmless'? Really?

Initially I thought you were doing that to bash liberals/progressives, but that guy is just lol... pretty standard anarchist I think, or one of those 'libertarian' strains that think they're libertarian but aren't. Some sort of anarcholibertarian maybe.

I doubt it's "extreme left wing" licking those stamps but that is far from impossible. Insistence on ideological purity is the main indicator of the extreme of any political philosophy. The term RINO & DINO (Republican/Democrat In Name Only) gets thrown around a lot by their respective sides.

 

After all no one hates apostasy more than the zealot.

These particular targets though? I don’t see how DINO would apply.

"It is disappointing, especially as we approach the centenary of the Armistice, that the President of the Student’s Union feels that it is acceptable to disregard the heroic sacrifice of soldiers who sought to defend the very freedoms, including free speech, which Miss Dawes has chosen to exercise.

 

Always seems odd to read comments saying WW1 was about defending freedoms.

I get the impression that we have a lot more right wingers here than left wingers, but the right wingers see themselves as some sort of oppressed minority and they need to really double down on the rhetoric all the time. Just my impression. :p

Depends on where you are coming from in the D spectrum. But like I said I don't thinks that is it anyway. But I would not rule it out.

Loved that movie!

 

My favorite thing about it was that the moon nazis were nothing like the nazis in earth. They weren't aiming to kill people but rather improve life. They were compassionate, even to the black guy whose skin they bleached who she (the nazi) fell in love with - even with black skin.

 

There was a great message in that movie, comedy? Or was the production just so bad that it turned out comedy? Either way, none of it was satire, that's exactiy how moon nazis would react if they were based on the moon (in reality) and it's actually what most believed - as most Americans believe they are a cure to poverty anyway... No joke there.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

That's been the right-wing's schtick at least since the right-wing was literally invented, back in 18th century France. Justified or not, they must always be reacting against the international conspiracy to sap and impurify their precious bodily fluids oppression of progressives.

 

BTW guys, I get the feeling that the weird Poe experiment we've got going on in the last few pages is getting out of hand...
