    The Left has become dangerously unhinged.

    I do mean dangerous. These out of control haters are fast becoming mobs who will stop at nothing to destroy this country. They are vulgar and proud of it. Where does this evil come from? Blame this on Trump, too, I suppose?

    The new tactic is a blatant war on anyone who is not a member of their mob. Danger is here.

    Watch the haters zoom in with their personal attacks.

    Define what you perceive as "Left" and let's see how it develops from there.

    Fair enough?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Here in the United States it would be those who support the Democrat party. Those who want open borders, big government, and a lack of patriotism.

    That seems rather constrictive. What about those who are cynical of all parties in the US and don't align with your parameters and see some grey areas? It's not unpatriotic to be at odds with the administration is it? After all, plenty have voiced dissension where it comes to former presidents.

    Well, in a sense it certainly is although that's hardly a good thing as it's just simplistic labelling and pigeon holing.

    Not included.
    Why?

    Not included.
    Again, why? You're the one categorising people as "the left" so what exactly does that mean? Right now the terminology doesn't seem to have any meaning besides "not being included" in certain vague parameters of yours. Can you be more specific as to what constitutes a "leftist" and explain as to why?


    As they should.
    Several do now with the current administration. That doesn't make anybody a "leftist" by default does it?

    Ah, yes. "Simplistic". Shame on me for standing on the most simple and basic of facts.

    Back to basics. It's why I didn't bother to elaborate.

    "those who support the Democrat party. Those who want open borders, big government, and a lack of patriotism."

    1. those who want open borders

    2. those who want big government

    3. those who lack patriotism (basically those who hate America).

    What do you consider to be "patriotism" or "hating America"? There's plenty of "conservatives" who aren't fans of the current administration and plenty of "liberals" who are in favour of reasonable border controls that don't just let anyone in.

    What, really is the point of this thread?

    You can't lump people into some silly category GD, not if you're honest at any rate.

    Nevermind, Artie. It must be too simple for you to understand.

    Or more multifaceted than you care to admit.

    Still, sorry for the lack of personal attacks on my part.

    No, I DELIBERATELY wanted to stick to the basics. I'm sorry that you're unable to do so.

    Still, sorry for the lack of personal attacks on my part.

    Oh, I have no doubt.....they will come.
