Bob Robert: hasty ambush: [www.quickmeme.com image 400x600]

Just because someone wants more government does not mean they want corrupt right wing thuggish government. Accountability and respect of rights is what left wing people believe in. That applies to the police. If they are accountable and respect the rights of everyone, there is nothing wrong with more of them.


And just because somebody wants less government and taxes does not mean they want a "Somalia utopia"-see how that works?

More government always leads to diminished rights because by it very nature it means more power to government less to people.  Left wing people are against many "rights" like school choice, gun rights  free speech that id not politically correct (hate speech) etc.

Left wing people are more interested in being cared for by government ("free stuff" they redefine as rights) than being free.

Freedom is hard because it involves too much self responsibility and self reliance for left wing people to handle-easier to be cared for.

teenage mutant ninja rapist: Enemabag Jones: Gyrfalcon
Lord Farkwad: OscarTamerz: It's not legal to wear a disguise in public and that's an anti-Klan law so any pissant douchebag that wants to break it is looking for a billy club shampoo. If they could split some lips and knock out some teeth while they're at it all the better. Of course its a good law when applied to kluckers but a terrible injustice when the left wingers are trashing a city like the battle in Seattle or occupy wall street. Funny how laws apply to everyone though.

That one's not gonna work if there's a number on that badge, citizen.

Because badge numbers are so easy to get.

How about displaying badge numbers right below those police identifiers?

How about big bright neon numbers across the helmet.


Yes, please.

You've got thr left and right wing there. Too bad they never could work together. They'd take over the world!

For our own good, of course.

Yes it was brutal...and well deserved.

I can understand if the NYPD has to deal with certain assholes in a certain way.  Some cops however need to realize that the badge doesn't give you the right to be an asshole yourself.

Probably not as brutal as being raped with a toilet plunger by police resulting in death?

There are some genuine, world-class assholes on FARK.

Therefore FARK deserves a brutal lesson?

all protests ever, for whatever cause should have people wearing the American Flag or some sort of Patriotic clothing.

Then when headlines appear of you getting maced in the face by a cop, it'll make everyone see the cops and tyrannical jerkbots.

I almost want to start a protest just to test this theory.

You just posted a picture of extreme right wing dictators who had no respect for basic human rights and freedom. What point are you trying to prove here except that you never went to college?

Accountabily and respect of rights eh..

That was such an excellent rebuttal of my statement. Great job.

hasty ambush: And just because somebody wants less government and taxes does not mean they want a "Somalia utopia"-see how that works?


Since less government and less taxes mean the Robber Baron era, then yes you do want similar.


More government always leads to diminished rights because by it very nature it means more power to government less to people.  Left wing people are against many "rights" like school choice, gun rights  free speech that id not politically correct (hate speech) etc.

You have this backwards. By its very nature, less government leads the rich and powerful to have free reign to oppress others

Left wing people are more interested in being cared for by government ("free stuff" they redefine as rights) than being free.

Free stuff? You mean like tax breaks for corporations, not having to pay taxes to support a civil society, massive defense spending, and on and on?

Freedom is hard because it involves too much self responsibility and self reliance for left wing people to handle-easier to be cared for.

Self responsibility? So you think it is up to you, a single person, to be responsible and self reliant to some how enforce your freedoms and rights so that others more rich and powerful than you don't abuse their position of power? How much more delusional can the right get?

So because I believe it's good to be kinder to poor people and its good to punish then regulate people who cause economic collapses through their lies, I am Hitler. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200, you are either a right-wing patriot...or the worst humans to ever exist. Nothing in between there, not a single shade of grey.

(Is this is how they truly perceive things? Is this their reality? No basis in facts or plausibility...just..."liberals absolutely crave brutal fascist dictatorships"? I can't imagine not having the capacity to see or think beyond that.)

You do know that Hitler was responding to a (at least in his mind) global conspiracy by Jews to keep non-Jews poor debt-slaves, don't you? He was working for the common man. He was trying to help the poor. Why do you hate the poor? Why don't you want to help them?

PS. The entire history of progressive liberalism (as opposed to classical liberalism) is one of fewer and fewer rights and more and more government control. Along with it comes harsher penalties for even the most minor infraction... it's the only way to prevent revolt.

What alternate universe do you live in?
What color is the sky there?


I live in the US. Are you totally unable to comprehend what's going on all around you?

I'm pregnant. Referring to Stalin and Hitler as "extreme right wing" was the giveaway.
