I booked a hotel room a year ago in Corvallis, we're leaving tonight to cross the border and stay the night with family in Seattle so we can get an early start on Sunday.

Maybe we'll run in to Carlos.

Hi Es99...

Your silly belief that I am equating the two. Is just a continuation and necessary confirmation of what I am posting.

You are equating the two, otherwise you wouldn't have felt the need to bring it up.

BTW: Your silence, or excusal, or acceptance (pick one) of the following post by Gary. Also confirms everything have been saying.

Gary... "I don't think he [Trump] should be assassinated. He should be executed, with formalities."

What would have been your immediate response, if I had posted in the past. 'I don't think Obama should be assassinated. He should be executed, with formalities'.

As I have posted: Welcome back!

The only thing it confirms is that I have never lived in a country barbaric enough to still have the death penalty, such as America or Iran, so I have no desire to hijack this thread discussing the merits of various punishments for his crimes.

Officials at Yale University recently censored a stone work of art on campus depicting an armed Native American and Puritan side by side, which has been described as a “hostile” image by the Ivy League institution’s alumni magazine.

The stone carving was edited to cover up the Puritan’s musket, while the Native American’s bow was left as is, reports Yale Alumni Magazine.

Can BOTH sides, whose foundations are the same... Just go away.

Yes spray painting statues is totally as evil as murdering a woman with a car. I see that now, Clyde.

Care to inform us which are alt-left? Were they present in Charlottesville?

You are either against Nazi's or you are one.

The Rise of the Violent Left

Antifa’s activists say they’re battling burgeoning authoritarianism on the American right. Are they fueling it instead?

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/the-rise-of-the-violent-left/534192/

Sorry Gary...

Your attack against one sides hate and not the others.

...

That whole article is reaching at best. Antifa is not one organisation, it's an umbrella group and hardly as dangerous and "evil" as you like to claim. They are anti-fascist. You might not support some actions (mainly destruction of property) buy you cannot claim their cause is evil and they no way equate to Nazis. To do so is disingenuous.

Apart from that, they weren't even involved in the rally where the white supremist terrorist drove a car into innocent protesters.

You are summoning phantasms to justify your support of Nazis.

I've probably missed a few factors, but hopefully I've got the salient points.

I think you missed a big one, how America views violence. Americans' will ban any expression of the normal human function of procreation as an obscenity, but they will celebrate expressions of violence, even turning violent criminals into folk heroes.

I have been talking about my past as a white power skinhead and my present as a human being dedicated to peace publicly since January 2010. And the question I am most frequently asked is: what made you change?

The simple, one-word answer: exhaustion.

A taste for violence cultivated since being a first grade school bus bully had a lot to do with me getting involved in white supremacy; violence that tasted much better if I was able to convince myself that it was justified.

Early on the thrill of dominating someone else, and the ensuing consternation of parents and teachers, was plenty of justification. As I grew older, I found that the thrill was magnified immensely when it happened in the context of an 'us' versus 'them' narrative.

First it was kids versus teachers, then whatever clique I led versus any other clique, then punks versus society, then the 'white race' that I had chosen to identify myself as versus everyone else on earth.

I would say what you are describing is Toxic Masculinity, which would explain why it is mainly young males who are drawn to extremist groups.

How do you think we ended up here? What has happened to society in the last 10 years or so that lead us to the point where we actually believe people who oppose racists and Nazi's are actually considered the bad guys? Where did this mentality come from and why are so many people buying into it?

The same as when Hitler rose to power. When times are bad people will look for an ideology that pins the blame on someone and offers an easy fix.

Racism has always been an unacknowledged problem in the US. Neo-liberalism has help create huge gap between rich and poor and those left behind want an explanation. It's not in the interests of those in charge to point out that massive tax breaks for the wealthy are a part of the problem, in fact watch as those in charge prepare to give themselves more of the same.

Slavery has been replaced with an unfair penal system that disproportionately targets people of colour. The poor are getting poorer, black people are starting to fight back against being murdered on the streets by the state, causing unrest. White people are scared and looking for a scapegoat and what better one to give them that the vocal minorities who want justice and equal rights. Add to that American culture of blaming poor people for their problems and the wealthy elites have had an easy time dividing groups against each other through the use of the propaganda "news" channels such as Fox News that they own.

The people who speak out are then smeared and painted as snowflakes, or false labels such as alt-left are created in order to silence dissent.

The Democrat party has forgotten who it is supposed to represent, and the Rupublican party in a desperate bid for power are supporting a narcissist, mysongynist, white supremacist with dementia.

I've probably missed a few factors, but hopefully I've got the salient points.

Alt Left Hooded Black Shirts, many who also hide their faces. Are not a fiction.

The only difference between the Radical Right, who the Media has been describing as the Alt Right. And the Radical Left, who is being describing as the Alt Left.

Is that the Alt Right usually champions and admits their evil. Giving many disgusting reasons they are correct.

Unlike the Alt Left. Which by denying their evil, and attacks against those advocating Freedom from Intimidation for All People. May be, if they really believe their accusations. Crazier than the Alt Right.

It's the alt-left boogeyman. Do they eat babies too?

Does it matter?

Gary... Because you have lost the moral and ethical argument. You are sinking further and further.

Since both JE and myself have repeatedly described the Nazis in the same terms you have.

...

...and yet you've then gone on to minimise it by creating a false equivalency.

Lots of bad people were not at the rally...when you bring up all the bad people who were not at the rally to minimise the atrocities committed by those who actually were (Nazis, I'm talking about Nazis) then you negate any efforts at condemnation you've made.

You are an apologist. You've bought into a false narrative perpetuated by Nazis to defend Nazis because it suits you to do so.

What on earth are The "alt-left"?

It is the result of an echo chamber, where a tiny bit of the outside world leaked in. They heard a label for themselves and liked it so much they co-opted it upon themselves and now bestow it upon others, not realizing the hate and disdain they assign to others they also co-opt upon themselves. (they are not smart, but they are smug)

A definition would be: anyone who isn't an echo chamber for the alt-right.


We get quite a good view from North of the border. It's horrifying.

Glad to see you posting.

I knew it would be bad here. Its hard enough reading about it in the news without coming here and seeing that actual people believe this stupidity. I'm not sure I have the stomach for it, being the bleeding heart liberal I am, I like to think the best of people. It's hard when you see something so obviously wrong and people are making excuses for it.

Is this because you can't bring yourself to recognize that both sides were in the wrong?.

"Always change the subject if you can't find a logical reason to disagree with a statement."

Look at you making excuses for Nazi's.

Oh good grief.


I'm glad to see you posting! I'm pretty sure I know your views but can you expand on your comments here? Also, penny for your thoughts on why this movement seems to be growing (or maybe it isn't)? What is it that's so appealing to people that they join these socially unacceptable groups? Or am I completely off base here? Please add additional comments! I'd love to read them.

I haven't been around because I can't deal with some of the alt-reality posted on these boards.

How have we even got to the point where Nazi's aren't automatically the bad guys? I'm mystified.

Every day I watch the news and I see the media trying to guild the Trump turd, trying to piece together something rational with what is clearly irrational. Now this fiction about there being some sort of alt-left at this demonstration who are just as bad as the Nazi's. I knew for a fact that if I read here, Clyde would be proclaiming this insanity and no doubt crying foul at anyone who points out he's effectively a Nazi sympathizer now. (If this hasn't happened already...its about to).

Some truths are self evident. One of these is that Nazi's are bad and you really ought to supporting the people that oppose them.

150 years of history does not absolve present day hate groups.

betreger... Why do you believe that is does?

CLYDE

I have seen alt right people bombing, lynching, shooting and attacking Alt left groups with automobiles, I do not recall the converse.
The converse of a statement is its opposite or reverse. I spelled it out for you because it is obvious to me that logical deductive thought is alien to your mindset. Can you cite the converse or do you just have unfounded opinions?

What on earth are The "alt-left"?

I'd never heard this term before it spewed out of Trumps mouth, so I'm guessing it's some sort of Newspeak coined by Fox News.

I've heard of the alt-right which is an attempt to sanitise Nazi's, racists, homophobes etc, but what does "alt-left" mean?

Why do you folks outside the US have the most complaints about that which isn't affecting you? Liberalism has been growing since the beginning of the 20th century. And to think it's no one's fault is liberal logic. And to think global climate change is destroying a dam in kalifornia... there's only one thing I can do over that BELIEF: HAHAHAHA!

The RELIGION of liberalism supports islamic jihadism.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/15/politics/travel-ban-blocked/

The RELIGION of liberalims supports ILLEGAL immigration and a continued supply of ILLEGAL drugs across our border.

http://patriotreporting.com/2017/03/09/chuck-schumer-adamant-that-liberals-will-stop-and-block-trumps-border-wall/

The RELIGION of liberalism supports brain damaged folks like Nancy Pelosi and her judgement.

Liberalism is destroying this country and must not only be STOPPED, it must be REVERSED. Otherwise, we'll just drop back down into 3rd world country status and we'll become slaves to countries like China and Russia.

Good grief. It's like talking to someone in a cult.

Yes.

In the real world outside that weird US partisanship bubble you have going on, this isn't a controversial fact. Out here we understand how science works and are quite happy to state the obvious.

Yes. Climate change was a real factor in the failure of the dam.
