For those newly introduced to Cthulhu swimming Left concepts.
‘Liberalism’ is the most profoundly corrupted word in political history. Without any exaggeration, rhetorical license, or metaphorical latitude, it’s the leathery sliced-off face of something murdered long ago which now serves to disguise a foaming chainsaw-wielding maniac sharing none of its DNA… Liberalism, from this point forward, means nothing at all like state-happy progressivism.…
At no time in recent history have liberal concerns been less relevant to public policy – even as foils, or ‘neoliberal’ bogeymen. It might be necessary to return to the 1930s to find a time of comparable eclipse. They aren’t being listened to, and they certainly aren’t the object of any animated conversations, unless to slip into social media banter as the butt of jokes. Their concerns seem eccentric, and even identifiably dated, to some point between the end of the 1970s and the Baby Bush quagmire. Where the right once nursed a secret ambivalence for Pinochet, out of admiration for the Chicago Boys, today it’s only interested in the helicopters.
Prosperity Politics won’t work anymore.
You’re late-stage Rome.
The time of options is over.
Welcome to the downslide. We have charts.
Just let it.
Just let it happen.
Stop bailing them out like a doting father does his Princess because they begged for mercy, bleeding heart in hand. These are not your people, they are not your problem. They can go to their own, the politicians and the people who donate less to charity cases in studies, the ‘nice’ people.
Don’t be afraid to laugh at them. Their situation, their stupidity, and the fact narcissists think they can always fool you into paying for their decisions with “I didn’t know”.
This is their greatest thrill, to trick you and get everything free, on you.
The proof positive is how they back down once it’s clear you’re onto the lie: I didn’t know becomes I don’t care, you still owe me.
That isn’t a special appeal for mercy (still a fallacy), an appeal to exception, it’s a threat.
A psychopath is essentially a malignant narcissist, they are interchangeable
The psychopathic tendency to not care about the consequences of their actions, no matter how badly they affect others, can be linked to their “remarkable ability to rationalize their behavior,” according to Hare.
While their friends and family may be physically or emotionally hurt by the psychopath’s actions, he or she will typically just deflect the blame with excuses or flat-out deny it.
Everyone is either Gandhi or Hitler, okay?
The free speech Left.
That is waiting for you.
That is your ally.
That is what you’re left with, if it’s Just The Left. Domestic terrorism.
SO MUCH FOR THE TOLERANT LEFT.
This is a step in the right direction, but fascism is more centred around the people and culture than a simple authoritarian system structure based on someone you can’t dissent from and vote out. We already have that with Juncker of the EU. Lenin, Mao, Stalin…. it isn’t rare.
Starve the beast. They don’t believe in property, they shouldn’t be given any filthy capitalist money. Let them set up an anti-fa commune and they’re free not to associate with evil whitey or whoever else oppresses them with civilization.
Neither group wishes to give up the freedom of association nor the right to life (and self-determination).
Necessarily included in the right of association is the freedom not to associate with others. There is no right for any individual to join a particular association if other members of the group decide not to include them or to expel them on the basis that their membership was not compatible with the aims and interests of the association.
It’s about who owns the land.
You didn’t build that.
If you stole it, I can steal it too.
Are you sure you want to inherit this? Are you quite sure?
Watch it for five minutes. I bet you can scarcely struggle two.
What, would anti-fa support Trump defaulting on the national debt, since property isn’t a thing?
China owns your asses.
“As of the end of August, according to the Treasury, entities in Mainland China owned $1,200,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities.”

That’s just embarrassing.
‘A potentially serious short-term problem would emerge if China decided to suddenly reduce their liquid U.S. financial assets significantly…. The initial effect could be a sudden and large depreciation in the value of the dollar… and a sudden and large increase in U.S. interest rates … The dollar depreciation by itself would not cause a recession since it would ultimately lead to a trade surplus (or smaller deficit), which expands aggregate demand…. However, a sudden increase in interest rates could swamp the trade effects and cause (or worsen) a recession. Large increases in interest rates could cause problems for the U.S. economy, as these increases reduce the market value of debt securities, causing the prices on the stock market to fall, undermining efficient financial intermediation, and jeopardizing the solvency of various debtors and creditors. Resources may not be able to shift quickly enough from interest-sensitive sectors to export sectors to make this transition fluid.’”
China’s gonna stab you to death with a knife that reads MADE IN AMERICA.
Was the iPhone worth it?
Debt as % of GDP
You are producing less than you owe.
Recession doesn’t have a concrete definition but that should be it.
And from NASDAQ’s site, conspiracy truther alt right site that it is. #fakenews
I know this and I’m barely paying attention. Why don’t you?
Click off the hentai porn and onto some numbers.
I had considered using the term Alt Left when AR became more popular except there was this one guy who really wanted that to happen.jpg and I hated his guts. So.
One loves liberty, the other loves the slavery of others.
The Left always drives down to its authoritarian soul eventually. What we think of as fascism is instinctively leftist. Statists don’t have God, they play god.
From Marx to Mao they just keep swimming, just keep swimming.
TLDR for ya.
“Liberals can win again when they stop their muslim and tranny ass kissing.”
“I honestly believe we are overly PC and somewhat precious, but more importantly we need to have a simple message.”
It’s the SJWs, they’re popularity poison.
6 might be me, in astral form
“You can choose to face the problems of the world and try to do something about them, or you can stick your head up your ass and pretend everything is hunky dory.
Progressives prefer the former. Deplorables, being the lazy shits that they are, would prefer to chow down on burgers and watch football, as the article states.”
Controversy means nothing nowadays, it’s whiny people getting their knickers twisted about something that will never be any of their business. Goes for the signalling right too. We used to call those people busybody nosy Mrs Grundies. They still are.
“Do you guys understand that people are tired of feeling like an extra on the “The Crucible” and the Puritan morality is becoming slightly boring and frustrating?. It is guilt and condescending guilt at that.
The working Class should be the base of the Democrats. The fact that so many think they are above them makes me feel I am writing an essay on the Anciene she Regime in France pre 1789, rather than a Democratic Party.
You look down on Deplorables. Tell me your plan to win 2020. Let’s be honest here. Tell me me your plan to win 2028. Cause if we continue down this way, that’s the next time we have a real chance.”
Yes, it’s 100% class. Look at the voting metrics by demo.
Democracy coming from demos, for demographic.
I stopped quoting at comment 14 but it’s a superb thread and proof of why I read these things.
They’re actually not all dumb.
The Labour party could learn a thing too.
