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.

Aw, cue the Sad Trombone.

Whacking an anarchist fark with a baton....GOOD!  Do it again, and harder!

If that "anarchist" had been on a horse and waved the stars 'n stripes, the cop would have been the symbol of tyranny.

But instead, he's dressed in black, with his faced covered, just like a real patriot.  BTW, which "protest" group wears black?


Did you even bother to look at the image I posted?

The kind that is already afraid of police reprisal. Yet feels strongly enough to still protest.

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.

What accountable respecters of rights might look like.

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.

Right. So, again, you're either a gun-toting, Jesus-loving, baby-making right winger who believes in no laws or regulations unless they have to do with gay sex or abortion in which case, as a woman, I have to submit to government control of my body...

OR

I am the exact kind of person who would massacre six million Jews because I believe that if you manufacture peanut butter, and kids die of salmonella, your company should bear responsibility and should follow a damn law or two.

Liberals are EXACTLY HITLER, is what you're saying. And this is reasonable to you? This is how you go through life? You ONLY see black and white? If I give a dollar to a homeless man, its fair to compare me to the man who slaughtered Jews?

*Shakes head*

Dont have kids. What if you have a child who brings a can of food into school for the needy? You'll have to murder her yourself with your own gun in your backyard. Because she'shiatLER.

When is it ever applied to teabaggers?
I can't think of a single time. No matter how often they break out the guns and threaten government agents. Something no OWS'er ever did.
I have no idea what a klucker is. I assume it's some teabagger shorthand for...something


It wasn't entirely fair, but teabaggers gave off this entire different feel, life isn't entirely fair either. Many were older, and when they were strapped with ar15's over their shoulder in photos, I remember them in parks, often sitting in folding lounge chairs. Until they get angry enough to start shooting, the whole thing felt more like a well organized guided-tour protest.

With regard to OWS or whatever leftwing protest group it is, American don't know how to riot and police really don't need to pull out their bearcats and riot gear and the double-standard it isn't fair. This may not apply to the rare anarchist group causing trouble and that is not common.

However comparing OWS and teabaggers, they are two completely different animals in my opinion. However it would be interesting to see what happens to an OWS protestor with an ar15 strapped on his back.

This isn't a final answer, just ideas.

SilentStrider: dpzum1: HA!!!

OWS was a complete failure... at least for those doing the so-called occupying.
For the rest of us who actually work for what we have, it was a splendid dish of meat, followed by something else made from animal flesh for dessert. Perhaps a bacon/chocolate flour-less tart, or a chicken cheese cake. Or maybe...oh I think I have confused these people for PETA.

Or have I?

Oooh, I get to bust this out twice in the same thread.
