The hard left, funding the army, save us from the Chinese, the other party would send us to ruin.


Is straight out of Hitlers play book in the 1930's

The only difference is he could successfully orate a speech...

In the wash-up of this cataclysmic presidency, I sincerely hope that Trump's enablers are judged as harshly as he himself is judged.

The thing is though that it's all been said before, so many times that even the harshest description of Trump just gets lost in the maelstrom. It's almost as if there are no words left that we can use to describe our feelings about the damage he's deliberately inflicted, and continues to inflict. Those who see him for what he is get it, those who don't never will.

How is it possible that his words - and actions - pass muster with normal, reasonable people in any way? It's mind blowing. And no, it's not "the fault of the left, if it hadn't been for them this would never have happened". That's simply nonsense.

How fragile civilization is.

I share your frustration and puzzlement Lion, and try as I might I've never been able to answer the question you posed.

You've summed it up perfectly, 'how fragile civilization is'.

Its very easy to fall into a bubble of misinformation, the internet will constantly feed you what you want to hear, then you get stuck looking for the answers you want rather than the results the questions derives.


Plus until Covid let's not forget the USA was not doing to badly economicly, decent job growth, the Dow was being ballooned by tax cuts, even some small decreases in medicine costs.

Socially However a different story, but if you live in the suburbs, amongst similar minded people would you have even noticed the bubbling unrest if Covid had not exacerbated the situation?

There is a lot of misinformation about, some of it being spread by Russian in an "information war" which seems to destabilize the West. Trump is a symptom of a deeper rift within society, but in a way, a valuable lesson on what needs to be fixed. He's a buffoon, but he's not actually evil - imagine if he was !!

Biden has just been caught red-handed operating a crime family via his druggie dropout son Hunter (who was so stupid he dropped off a laptop full of incriminating evidence for repair and forgot to pick it up): raking in millions in bribes from China, Ukraine and elsewhere in exchange for selling out America's manufacturing and withholding aid to get prosecutors investigating his son's company fired.......and you daft communists are whinging about Trump, who has been investigated more than anyone in history by fake news media and deep state democrats (not to mention treacherous RINOs) these past 4 years without a single wrongdoing to show for it.

He got the economy booming before covid; destroyed ISIS; stymied Iran; brought peace to Kosovo and the Middle East; and all without starting a new war (the first president not to start one since Carter). And still the brainwashed leftists screech.

Truly Clownworld.

I'm tempted to take issue with the underlined part.

Obviously I don't know them all but when I read Trump supporters opine on other issues on BE and in other places there does appear to be a certain lunacy in their views

However this backfired amongst the understandably cheesed-off young progressives leading to a surge in DSA membership, the rise of The Squad - both AOC and Tlaib are DSA members - and increased representation at all levels year on year. The trend of the average Democrat voter moving further to the left over the last 25 years has been matched by the views of their representatives and this process has only accelerated since 2016. We obviously still got the ultimate establishment candidate this election in the form of Biden but everything possible is being done to keep the DSA and its fellow travellers in the big D-tent - the co-opting and subsequent watering down of the Green New Deal, support for BLM and refusing to condemn Antifa. Even Pelosi went from sniffily dismissing AOC's victory in 2018 as "not to be viewed as something that stands for anything else" to wearing kente cloth whilst taking the knee in Congress less than two years later.
Good video. I'm certainly with Carville.

This discussion about 'far left', 'left', etc is pointless in my view - it really doesn't matter whether the US 'left' is equivalent to UK 'center' or whatever; "it is what it is". Within the US, there is a spectrum from left to right and ... by US measures ... some people occupy the furthest left reaches. If that just so happens to coincide politically with the UK center, that's a fascinating fact but totally irrelevant when it comes to our (US) elections. The "how far left is 'far left'" debate is a distraction. The analogy by Carville to Corbyn is valid.

I thought this name rang a bell but I couldn't think why. Is it a parody account? It's just that naturally I checked posting history and apart from the sexist shenanigans there's this from May.

You'd think with a statement like that the person who made it would have done the decent thing and disappeared like the poster in the Canadian section that predicted no second wave.

Is it because the Elgin marbles went missing?
