The Democratic Party has become a real Motley Crew. I can't imagine how they are going to organize and come together to form any kind of believable platform.

The Democrat party is mostly made up of anarchists, aging hippies, Hollywood airheads, angry minorities, elitist academic intellectuals, many rich corrupted wall streeters and banksters, illegal immigrants, socialists, communists, welfare victims, a few racists, many intolerant bigots, and overly-tattooed millenials with boy-buns.

The Republican Party is mostly made up of hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding, normal people with a few racists and bigots, and a few corrupted wall streeters.

Read up, and know that the political terms "right" and "left" predate communism by about 100 years.

Mad world.
Yes it's a mad world. I NEVER would've thought the GOP would be the populist party railing against NAFTA and globalism.


The Dems used to be very much America first in the sense of being anti-free trade, pro-fair trade, anti-globalization and such.


And why don't any liberals in here respond to when I post this stuff? Do they just not get it? I seriously think they don't get it otherwise they wouldn't be so shook up over Clinton's loss. I really honestly think all hey care about are social issues, identity politics. It was just a way to end the patriarchy.

No, I actually have read Marx, Herbert Marcuse, Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno, and other authors who are probably beyond your comprehension level.

Still, the fixation on identity politics is something I associate more with the fringe left. Most mainstream leftists I know are simply wanting to end the failed war on drugs, not get involved in every war, implement universal health care, and not let reproductive rights get chipped away.

When it comes to 'safe spaces', toilet usage, open borders, etc -- that's coming from the very vocal fringe minority.
If they are "fringe," why are these things not criticized by the liberal media? On the contrary, the mainstream Democrats and liberals support them.

Because this makes no logical sense in 2016 (in past times it did prevent non Whites from gaining wealth) the only way to get people to believe it is by teaching it to young minds from age 5 to 25. You also teach them that facts can be racist so they aren't swayed by logical arguments.
"You also teach them that facts can be racist so they aren't swayed by logical arguments."

You hit the nail on the head with that sentence.

You've already shown that you know nothing about Marxism.

Why aren't we looking at countries with lower crime & poverty rates to see what they (might) be doing right?
They aren't offshoring good jobs and importing unskilled, uneducated and impoverished immigrants to take low-paid jobs while consigning large percentages of their own citizens to welfare dependency, desperation and poverty.

And they're not shrieking that anyone who criticizes that is a "racist."
