It’s not up to me. You have your chosen favored ideology. It’s baffling but it is what it is. Why would I believe that I could change your mind on a tit-for-tat back and forth internet debate in a lost corner of the internet universe?

 It’s not up to me. You have your chosen favored ideology. It’s baffling but it is what it is.
Why would I believe that I could change your mind on a tit-for-tat back and forth internet debate in a lost corner of the internet universe?
 What do you DO with your ideology? That’s what I want to know. What it is is, for whatever reason beyond My Pillow’s wildest dreams, is what it is.
 You were making so many assumptions about me that there was almost no point in me saying anything back. You had me figured out in your mind.
Hard to have a man to man talk in those conditions.
My reasons for having a very strong left wing lean is pragmatic.
I find the right-wing far too idealistic and impractical. They are living and acting out absolutely impossible fantasies.

Well, the United States can’t be an ethnostate nor a theocracy. Some right wing people want an America that is primarily a peculiar flavor of Christianity, primarily for people of UK/German descent, primarily for men.
“Primarily” starts moving to EXCLUSIVELY as you go further to the right.
As a nation born of mixture – while most certainly favoring UK/German descent – nevertheless STRIVES to become a “more perfect union”, an attempt to go backwards is .. well.. backwards. Undoing civil rights legislation is radical – and yet that is a direction the modern right is striving towards.

 The invasion of the Capitol building which resulted in dead and injured on January 6th 2021 was certainly right wing and fits the profile of “dangerous to our society”.
So far, ALL of the big fires during the George Floyd riots in the USA have been due to right-wing provokers, now in FBI custody. All of them.

It’s a shame because I know well meaning folks who were boog or boogaloos or whatever. [I don’t get into their names or slogans] – I’ve known left and right wing people who want to overthrow the govt, etc etc.

But within that group of right wing, some meant it and are now serving time for causing massive property damage. Nobody I know personally thankfully but I felt bad because the folks I knew looked bad by association with the firestarters
