Also, that it may ALSO be useful for multiple ideologies doesn’t negate the point at all but perhaps says something about movements in general. As far as your free speech speech? A point of fascism is that it restricts free speech so advocating for fascism introduces a paradox that other ideologies who might fit my statement may not. But thank you son for voicing your thoughts. Mom’s got a hot pocket for you but you’ll have to do 57 jumping jacks for her before she gives it to you.

Hill: a) these 1940s comics are great*
b) fascism will always be tempting to the simple and those who feel pain at their perceived lack of power but lack the practice at being sensible.

EDIT: “Actually” (bumps up glasses), it was pointed out that this is not from the 1940s. Point a) I concede and I’ll allow you that territory.

internet tough guy talk. Always fun. So, should free speech of every kind be mandated with a strong, firm hand with penalties for insubordination, or is there room for “don’t yell fire in a crowded theater”?

Overton window has shifted WAY to the right in the past 15 yrs or so. Stuff people wouldn’t even consider advocating before are now everyday family dinner topics.

White America always tends to be center-right liberal politically. That’s been true for a long time. But growth of hard and far right elements shames center-right liberal America and they don’t like seeing their ugly side exposed.

Universities support, what, 18-22 yr olds mostly? The common popularity of “anti-SJW’ is generally criticizing college kids doing college kid things.

There’s a name for it but I’m not finding it atm. Basically, the politics of Obama, Bush W, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, etc were ALL very similar to each other.

It’s easy to talk in polarities or to continually harken back to WW2 as a touch point. Extremes are fun and easy. Noble JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS of the tiny-us rising in power against the wicked them, eating away what’s proper like a plague or infection.

Such drama.

Society’s not becoming more racist. Rather the window of acceptable public discourse has shifted to the right.

America’s -ist tendencies – from all parties (it’s woven in the fabric of white America) were covered up by nice sounding “hiding words” for a long time. It was there, just masked.

No. A Republican – ANY – Republican was going to win. That’s how the parties go in the US. Mommy to Daddy to Mommy to Daddy.No. A Republican – ANY – Republican was going to win. That’s how the parties go in the US. Mommy to Daddy to Mommy to Daddy.
