Of course the problem is small when the "problem" is on your side. :roll:

That's two...putting exactly no seconds of thought in the matter, just the first two that sprang to mind

Sorry, I have not seen a Nazi in some time. Wannabes yeah, not Nazis though. Hardly worth getting the vapors over.
I have not seen a terrorist in some time. Or illegal immigrant. Or SJWs (real ones, not anybody left of Mussolini). Therefore I'm going to dismiss everything you bring up about them. Fair?

Terrorists bomb the shit out of stuff here and in the ME and engage in murder.
Until the orlando shooting, right wing extremists had been on par with murders as islamic terrorists.
Illegals and SJW can be found by reading the papers.
I'm referring to all the times nazis and right wing extremists show up in the news as well, and how you et all frown on bringing it up.
Nazis? not so much. Saying one is one hardly makes one one.
There litterally are a spate of examples brought up in this thread of neonazis.
Or is it that you just don't like some people and calling them Nazis makes it easier to identify a group that can then be hated?

Do tell.
Kind of like social justice warriors?
This is largely incoherent I fear. Is your point that we have a serious "Nazi threat"? And how is it manifested? Specifically? Are people shouted down at public meetings? Is property damaged? Are riots started?

I'll tell you my bias. I am worried about two things: assaults on freedom of speech and assaults on privacy. And these assaults are demonstrable and measurable and come from progressives and the government, respectively. Everything else, everything, pales in comparison, IMO.

If you want to get the vapors over the poor fools you want to call nazis go right ahead. Everyone needs a harmless hobby. The things I am worried about (and I am always right) have meat on the bones and there are disquieting precidents from around the world. The fucking idiot poles are just the latest example.

So we're back to 'All liberals are bad and everything bad comes from liberals'. All liberals are evil and we need to DO something about them.

But don't paint people with a broad brush.

:roll:

Just curious, what you propose to do about all these evil people who have the temerity to hold political opinions in opposition to your infallible ones? Death sentences or mere imprisonment?

For the protection of Freedom of Speech, of course...

I also can't help but notice that shouty right wingers == "Bad manners" whereas shouty left wingers == a threat to all that is good in the world.

And truly evil behavior by righties is just a few evil people, whereas evil behavior by lefties is an indictment of everyone who has even contemplated the vaguest of left wing ideals and proves them all to be as bad as Antifa.

Mighty convenient.

More bullshit. I have no problem with protests. I have a problem with efforts to silence opposition.

Which is why you want to silence left leaning speech, right? Because they are threats to free speech

Oh, am I not politically correct enough for you? Can't speak frankly or truthfully because they offend delicate sensibilities?

You're no different than the so called SJWs you complain about, with the exception being that these "sjws" find murder and violence abhorrent.

Didn't you get the memo, Mentat? SJW's, being left wing, are violent and murderes by definition. Right wingers are pure, faultless, infallible and incapable of murder or violence

It's not.

I don't agree with Wildcat's politics in general, but in this case he and I are both in possession of certain counter-intuitive information about Illinois politics.

Some SJWs are violent, most are merely annoying.

As for the Illinois Nazi, any indication that he's anything other than an annoying LARPer?

But you just said he made a convincing case that it WAS the Democrat's fault. You can't have it both ways

According to ed, Wildcat and most of the right, they are violent thugs to a man/woman/whatever. Even having an 'Gore/Lieberman' bumper sticker left over from 2000 on your car makes you suspect, I gather.

Clearly, a cleverly disguised Democrat. Nice try on his part, posing as an English Neo-Nazi. But we aren't fooled

Sure I can.

We disagree on how to apportion the blame, but he gets his facts straight (in this particular case).

I'll wait until he checks in again before continuing this line of inquiry.
