Your guy wants you all to drink bleach.

He never said to drink bleach.  If someone interpreted it that way and drank bleach they're retarded.

Sorry. Inject bleach. Is that better? :lol:

BLM and Antifa burn Bibles and american flags at the Federal Courthouse in Portland. Pretty sad.

He sort of said it but it looks like he misspoke.  He was talking about UV light treatment and got carried away in his thought process....

They rate it as "mostly false".

 

And there actually is uv light therapy being studied for the treatment of Covid...

I really hope that's not real.  But if so, it's beyond disgusting.  I'll hold off on commenting anymore until it's confirmed that it's a real video of Portland protesters.

 

@soon What do you think?

I just see a piece of hysterical propaganda, m'man.

For starters the text of the tweet claimed that someone was being oppressed. The video shows two individuals burning what are alleged to be bibles. Wheres the oppression? People who want to start a fire and dont hold reverence for certain books might just use it to start a fire. Granted it could indicate a desire to oppress people of the Book. But thats not materialized in their 'evidence.' :shrugs:And it also would be very random for entire movements to shift focus to pof's suddenly, right? :lol: I think they've got enough on their plates as is :lol: And thats what defines propaganda from reporting. The evidence doesnt support the texts claim. And its a ludicrous claim made to provoke fear and distain for movements for justice. Pure propaganda.

Id also repeat what I and others have repeated a bunch of times - antifa isnt a membership org. And most people acting under the banner of BLM arent part of a member organization either. BLMtm wants the money to keep flowing so we can easily deduce this was not a BLMtm action. Just two dummies. Seems random. And whys the video so short? Suspicious that they want to define only seconds of film when surely theres more.

And thats the most Ive ever thought about a post by Silent Jay :lol:

Don't fall for the bait. Everybody knows he misspoke.

The left thinks they're edgy with these forced memes but they are so bad and overplayed they make people realize that the left can't meme.

Funny how the more stupid somebody is the more they misspeak. :lol: Just because he’s thick as pigshit doesn’t give him an excuse. He said it and he meant it.

I know what you mean.  Like when a guy says poor kids are just as smart as white kids.  Or if you don't know if you're for me or Donald Trump you ain't black.  Or if a guy says I'm gonna take away your AR-14s.  Or if a guy says I told Jill to fire two blasts in the air with a double barrel shotgun to scare the thugs.  There's plenty more...

I don't think he literally meant people should inject themselves with bleach, but he did talk about bleach as a possible remedy for covid-19. If he misspoke, what do you think he intended to say? That we should turn bleach into pills?

Aren't most people here pretty much left-of-center politically? Or are you using the term "leftist" differently than me? Almost all Norwegians would find themselves on the left if dropped onto the US' political scale.

The thing is the left in Europe and left in the U.S. are very different things. During the Great Depression, many people thought that being left was good. But later the Cold War changed everything. And People like Ayn Rand became the role model.

Left of centre is a term and leftist is another term. Two terms. I know that must be difficult for you. Keep trying.

I think that another question would be where is the centre?

Now tell us what Marxist means.

You are not going to tell us what you mean with "leftist", to help us understand your claim that you are one of few here on the forum? Are you using it exclusively for people on the far left, hence excluding us closer to the centre yet still on the left wing? 

A Marxist is a follower of Marxism which is an ideology based on the thoughts of Marx. Marxists are on the far left of the political spectrum. Generally a dying ideology since attempts at building societies round Marxism have failed spectacularly, although elements of Marxism, in particular protection of workers rights, have been successfully incorporated in many well-functioning states. Most followers of Marxism today are idealistic youth with little life experience.

TOP DEFINITION

marxist

1. An ideology that advocates mass murder in the name of social justice, autocracy in the name of democratic fairness, slave labour camps in the name of proletarian liberation, a rigid social caste system in the name of a classless society, and general social destitution in the name of material prosperity

2. A proto-Nazi

So you have no links to support your ageist claim about marxists? You just made that up? Made it up like so many things you post here?
