    Connal remember when I said don't overdose on Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris? This is what I was afraid of. You seem to be in this tunnel vision mindset that the problems they point out are the major issues facing society today. They're not. Intersectionality and post modernism are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I've seen no signs of growing support for these fringe ideas that you think are taking over the world. Not once have I seen someone try to advance these ideas on this forum or on social media. I only see people everywhere mocking them and loads of conservatives warning people that THIS is biggest threat to us all. It is not. If you want to worry about something real worry about nuclear proliferation, Russian aggression or the growing power of a very authoritarian Chinese regime.

    I mean, it's working. The 20th century didn't make a very good case for leftist movements because the monarchies/aristocracies around the world saw Stalinism, Leninism, and other faux communist movements as easy demons to decry. And now we have people like @Connal and Theodarzna sinking their teeth in because the left is finally fighting back against the right's shills, and to them it's the LEFT's fault that society is being polarized... because they're finally saying "enough" and using the right's own dirty tactics against them.

    Every single person on this forum who has ever taken issue with being called a nazi has, at some point or another, falsely labeled the left wing movement as communists.

    The left has been playing nicely for decades. If Connal wishes to take a look at the last several decades of history of vilification of anything left by screaming "communist" at it and the subsequent shift rightward, he wouldn't be so quick to demonize the leftist movement. He's just gotten too embroiled with a woman who's married to a dude that swallowed the men's rights red pill and Trumperism.

    Not to mention MLK has multiple speeches calling asshats like @Connal the literal worse thing. Worse than actual KKK card carrying racists going around lynching people. Hell I'll just post it for Connal I doubt he'll see the similarities between who MLK is talking about and his lame brand of pseudo false equivalence bothsides are the same but it's totally the left's job to be the only adults in the room because SJW's are going to destroy the world but one can hope.

    Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., 16 April 1963
    "First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season."

    Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."


    "In spite of my shattered dreams of the past, I came to Birmingham with the hope that the white religious leadership of this community would see the justice of our cause, and with deep moral concern, serve as the channel through which our just grievances would get to the power structure. I had hoped that each of you would understand. But again I have been disappointed. I have heard numerous religious leaders of the South call upon their worshippers to comply with a desegregation decision because it is the law, but I have longed to hear white ministers say, "follow this decree because integration is morally right and the Negro is your brother." In the midst of blatant injustices inflicted upon the Negro, I have watched white churches stand on the sideline and merely mouth pious irrelevancies and sanctimonious trivialities. In the midst of a mighty struggle to rid our nation of racial and economic injustice, I have heard so many ministers say, "those are social issues with which the gospel has no real concern.", and I have watched so many churches commit themselves to a completely other-worldly religion which made a strange distinction between body and soul, the sacred and the secular.

    So here we are moving toward the exit of the twentieth century with a religious community largely adjusted to the status quo, standing as a tail-light behind other community agencies rather than a headlight leading men to higher levels of justice."

    The bolded is the exact type of bullshit @Connal spews on the daily and the exact type of bullshit ironicy the person he tried to call to his rescue called the worst. You can't make this shit up. The shit MLK calls the worst is almost straight from Connal's "Hey have you considered the people fucking you over have a point too so let's appeal to some false middle for the sake of compromise"
