    Lefty's reaction to Michael Knowles' common sense and decency, that is to say, lefty's lack of common sense and decency, underscores precisely why lefty is not to be reasoned with, but utterly defeated; otherwise, America is done.

    I'm an old guy.
    The new leftyism isn't the old leftyism.
    The new leftism is a hybrid Marxist/Stalinism; whereas the old leftyism was a hybrid Marxist/Oligopoly.

    The Stalinism makes the new leftyism dangerous as fuck to the liberties and freedoms that remain.

    Do you think all lefties are part of the “new lefty” revolution?

    Great question.
    Honestly, I'm not sure.
    I tend to think it's nears 50/50 and the next
    Dem Presidential nominee WILL be the tell.

    I agree about this election being a good indicator. What do you think about the effects of all the rhetoric. When the Right paints all Lefties as Anti American Commies... do you think that helps the situation? What does that do to the old liberals that you mentioned?

    I believe the 'culture cancel' of the new left marginalizes the old liberals while supporting the anti-AMERICAN rhetoric from the right.
    It's the main issue that the Democrats fail to resolve and will lead to a Trump re-election.
    Afterall, Trump won the electoral college in 2016 due to Dem 'secret voters' and may very well repeat again.

    So is the tactic to define all lefties as members of the extreme “new lefties” as you call them in an attempt to alienate old lefties and paint them as insignificant?

    if Kennedy were to use his "ask not...." speech today, leftists would boo him off the stage and then go about trying to prevent him from ever speaking again.

    I sure miss the days when the left was liberal instead of authoritarian.

    as somebody who is left leaning I find it dishonest and insulting when I hear conservatives trying to paint me as one of the wing nuts. I’m sure many on the right feel the same way when the left calls all on the right racist. That kind of dialogue is dangerous and immature yet I see it growing like wildfire. I see our president leading the charge. Do you have no issue with that kind of discourse?
