Even today at work, I get 5-10x as much real work done in a year than my average colleague, but I don't get 5x-10x higher salary, only like 5-10% more than they do. It is unjust, many freeloaders and leaches making careers on my hard work. It is theft, robbery, evil.
And in reality its republicans that are the communist-like income redistributors. But the republicans income redistribution transfers money to CEO's and the richest 1% of Americans (while it takes money from low income workers and the middle class.)

Look at GW Bush's $3 trillion dollar tax cut. These tax cuts gave the 20% of Americans making $36,000-$59,000 a year 9% of the tax cuts, and then gave the richest 1% of Americans 51% of the tax cuts.

And republican policies do the same thing. Republicans are against high min wages, against middle class tax cuts, against unions that bring high wages, against unemployment benefits, against lowering student loan interest rates, against lowering credit card interest rates, against small business tax cuts, ex.ex.

Republicans Block Unemployment Extension, Democrats Plan to Try Again (Updated)
GOP Blocks Senate Small-Business Tax Cut Bill
Republicans Screw Over 37 Million by Blocking Bill Lowering Student Loan Interest Rates

And while republicans oppose all of the above things for low income workers, the middle class, and small businesses they fully support trillions of dollars in tax cuts for CEO's and large corporations (like Mitt Romney's proposed $6.6 trillion dollar tax cut for the rich and large corporations.)
http://thinkprogress.org/economy/201...-6-6-trillion/

And its the same with republican Donald Trump. Trumps tax cuts give middle class Americans a 1% increase in after tax income, and then give the richest 1% of Americans a 14% increase in after tax income.
Forbes Welcome


But unforchantly republicans desire to give the richest 1% of Americans trillions of dollars in tax cuts (and then savagely attack any policy that attempts to give money or assistance to regular Americans.)

Because we didn't vote wisely in many past elections. It's our own fault that those twits got their little sounding board.

What we can call neo-Marxism, made of Marxism, post-modernism, intersectionality, critical race theory.
Recently around the latest election, lots of democratic party supporters and mainstream media keep making judgements about non-left people based on this ideology. We had Judeo-Christian moral system for more than 2 thousand years, but since the late 1980's we have this poisonous combination of ideologies that is basically a complete set of morality, that is very different than the mentioned Judeo-Christian morality. For example people openly make statements about people and events, make reasoning with the premise of "white privilege". The "white privilege" was invented by ideologues to base demands for wealth transfer. This "white privilege" and statements about "oppression" are really a faux-premise, to fit the demands. In reality some ethnic groups are less able to generate a lot of wealth of their own, being the reason for the same group of having lower average income than the rest of the country. But we cannot say this due to political correctness, so they invented another reason for the ethnic income gap, basically blaming white people for it, they call it white privilege, systemic racism... This way people don't have to blame themselves for their own failures, but they can blame other, more successful people instead. Then there is the democratic party who volunteers to help these ethnic groups with their problems, pushes more policies and accusations of racism. The facts of difference in abilities, was replaced (in politics and media) with difference in circumstances. Result was replaced with cause, upside down. This whole thing seems to be a scam to me, but it became mainstream. The interested parties in upholding this scam are the supposed victims, and the generous virtue signaling helpers (white liberals wanting to look like saint Mary), and politicians who can exploit this. People publish complete thesis works in form of books, make professor careers, all out of the same lies. I am a white guy, I grew up very poor in a poor country (poor even in local standards there), but now being quiet successful here in the US. I had no privilege of any kind. When people are referring to WP they are basically discrediting my tremendous efforts that I have put into my own self-development, and insulting me as racist.


How this scam is not proven enough yet that many people could understand it?


After the latest election, all of us who didn't support the above mentioned scam (democratic party campaign, and candidate promising the continuation of the scam), are labelled racist and other xxxxist. If I don't volunteer to be robbed while insulted in the same time, I/we get even more insults.
You obviously haven't been educated by Liberals otherwise you would have used paragraphs in this "drivel" you posted.

1) Repeated propaganda by media and entertainment outlets.


2) Forcible indoctrination in schools over a minimum of 12 years.


3) Enslavement of the poor and lower-middle class into the system perpetually by making them dependents, which also makes them de facto support any social ideas the candidates they are beholden to support.


4) Separation of the people from religion and morals.


Those are the steps to liberalism.

Is this the America that you Republicans want?
Your comment is very blurry, mixing things up.
you dont have to teach they are inferior. you have to teach them they are underperformers and THEY (and not someone else) have to improve.
Equal opportunities is not bad. Actually Obama and other SJWs are fighting for INequal opportunity, to achieve equal outcome. That is bad.
non whites are not conspiring of anything, white liberals do, they have oikophobia.

They have tried. All the democracy promotion by force, the foreign aid... the problem is they rushed it. They think they can rush a barbaric country into the 21st century by a 1-2 year campaign. I have bad news, the changes needed will take generations and can only work if they are driven by those people themselves.

Basically democracy destroys itself when people vote for either a communist or a sharia/juhadist rule. There should be laws in place to preserve liberal democracy. Liberal... I mean not leftist but something that is based on liberty of each individual.

Republicans dont hate south americans. They (us) just dont want too may south americans to come here to lower the average standards of educatedness and drain our resources, as most of them have nothing to give to the USA only take from it.

yeah. It is human resources that block managers from giving much bigger pay to the higher performers. In 10x more work I dont mean 10x longer hours. I am a design engineer. At one of the companies I worked I have released 7 different product designs into production in a 2 year period, while my colleagues did one each, and the 2 most complex challenging/comlex projects at the company were done by me.

Dont call me a nazi, you communist *******.
By the way both the arabs and the chinese plateued out around 1000 years ago, then the enlightenement happened in Europe around 500 years ago that invented the scientific method that created 99.99% of modern stuff around us, including the legal system, the end to slavery etc.

Given how I hear much more about the concept of "white privilege" from its opponents than its supporters I see it as a scapegoat, a fantasy that reactionary conservatives like to j*** each other off about. I graduated from college in 2012 and no one in my entire schooling ever taught me about "white privilege". This thread really does not even deserve discussion.

Whites have the most because they created the most through the scientific and industrial revolutions.

Don't like it? Too bad.

Whites also created the only civilization based on social justice -- individual freedom and rights, equal treatment before the law, etc.

Whites and whites alone ended slavery throughout the world.

Whites dominate mankind's highest achievements in the arts, literature, philosophy, science, math, engineering, medicine, etc.

The left has given up on the hard task of raising achievement levels among non-whites to that of whites.

Instead, they have provided handouts and told non-whites that they are the victims of whites.

Now, they've taken that a step further.

Instead of caring about non-whites in the U.S., they care about non-white foreigners.

This is their new "proletariat" who can provide them with millions and millions of new voters.

If U.S. citizen blacks and hispanics lose the opportunity to better themselves thanks to a flood of cheap foreign labor they have to compete with, that's just too bad.

The goal of the left is no longer social justice, it's hypercapitalist globalist elitism.

Dividing up the voting public by race, gender and class is a perfect way to get the peasants fighting with each other while the elites laugh all the way to the bank.

The Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse called this "repressive desublimation."

It is operating full bore now with all the racial and gender grievance mongering, obsessions over transgender bathrooms, and other such things that deflect attention away from globalization and turning the entire world into a Third World plantation dominated by a small globalist elite.

So just because you didn't hear about it means no one else did?

I'm going with something simple: Single parents and working mothers didn't pay attention to what Commie teachers were teaching their precious snowflakes in school.

Yeah, we know. Nobody heard about this fantastic liberal concept until 2016. What's your point again?
