It took some major acrobatics on your part but you've really revealed yourself there. I'm sorry you see the world as, "everyone else versus whites" ... there's really nothing else I can say to somebody who thinks that way.

That is how it seems you've been representing it. Are you saying that is not the case?

I know you think you're clever but you really just look ridiculous. I think that everybody needs to stop and take a look at what you've done. You injected race and "identity politics" into this conversation. Now, somehow, in your own fantasy world, you've cast yourself as the victim because the conversation became racially charged.

A young woman won a primary run-off in New York and some posters on this thread were commenting on her politics in a positive way --- do you understand that? They liked her politics and it was YOU that made it all about her race and gender. You did that --- nobody else.

I refer you to post 14,846. It's obvious you wanted the conversation to take this nasty turn and it did.

Nope, I merely pointed out that the short article you referenced contains no less than ten identity politics references.

Has the USA so become polarised that identity politics is the standard method and justification for selecting candidates? Whatever happened to the great melting pot that the USA had become famous for? Here, in case you've forgotten.

First of all, I didn't reference any articles. Do try to keep up. Second of all, why are you obsessed with so-called "identity politics"? If you don't want everything to be about race --- stop making everything about race.

I dunno, you're the expert on US politics. You tell me.

Ah sorry, right you are. It was Lion. You often pop up together/seem like a bit of a tag team, hence the confusion.

Yeah, but no. Neither one of us has "popped up" anywhere together. We've both been posting in this thread for years now. You on the other hand . . .

​​​​​​I wonder if they were headed for the oick waving the Polish flag?? They must have been a properly confused American because they were flying a Union flag over St. George, no self respecting English nationalist would be caught dead doing that.

Trying to make sense of all of this. So lets get this right, a conservative group were marching in support of a Republican candidate when they were confronted by ANTIFA activists? Are the ANTIFA activists the ones mostly dressed in black and wearing scarves covering their faces? Were the ANTIFA activists the ones throwing objects? Both sides appear to be participating in street combat but which ones are the fascists again? And why?

It's perfectly simple. What don't you understand? A militant far-right group and a militant anti-fascist group clashed on the street - about 200 people total, both sides combined. There was a fight.

In the meantime, thousands upon thousands rallied across the country to protest against Trump's policies towards immigrants, and more.

I am sure that Trump thinks that they are all good people, the militant far right ones that is..
