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.

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.

No but some are very dangerous-to everybody!

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?

It isn't a tactic. it is an observation, and one that is right on the money.

Who are these "old lefties" and who would be an example of such a person?

No.
It's actually an appeal to older lefties that your vote IS personal and secret, as it should be and that the New Left has totally deserted many of the cherished American values that they still adhere to.
In that regard, they are highly significant.

there was a thread a few years ago, where I referenced John Rawls and John Stuart Mill.

every single leftist that commented opposed them.

That says a lot when today's authoritarians oppose the two most influential liberal philosophers of the last two centuries.

I can only say that Slade asked very smart and highly essential questions that the New Left would not fathom to ask!

Hahaha..,”left leaning”...WTF?
Are you out of your fucking mind....you are straight up, hardcore, 100% Leftist.
Link us to three of your >25k posts where you took a clear conservative position. Thanks in advance.

can you provide an example of your taking exception to any of the other leftists when they fail to represent liberal values?

You know, like when they oppose free speech, align themselves with Islamists or support firing people because they referred to another person by their actual gender?

they are significant but I disagree with the tactic of clumping all lefties together. Many on the left oppose the socialist agenda. So calling those people socialists does not make sense. We are seeing it right now in the dem primary as the lines get drawn. If we could be grown ups and just talk about issues and smart solutions instead of the absolutist team sport propaganda that both sides peddle in then We would be much better off.

I agree. I just can't make out what he's saying about Trump and race.
