So many wrong statements....so little time.

\"By definition, there has never been and never will be any possibility of right wing totalitarianism.\"
Was that the turnip truck that just passed? Did you just fall off?
\"By definition: totalitarianism = leftism; leftism = totalitarianism. For example, Communism, Nazism, and fascism are all leftist and are all totalitarians.\"
No, that is an incorrect definition. You may do well to crack open a dictionary sometime.
For instance, Communism IS a \"leftist\" form of government, but it does npt have to be totalitarian. Nazism and other forms of Fascism are \"right-wing.\" Fascism IS totalitarian.
\"fascism (n)- a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.\" Random House Unabridged 2006
\"Since modern American liberalism is closely related to Communism, Nazism, and fascism, it has strong totalitarian tendencies.\"
None of that sentence is true.
\"In sharp contrast, the right is, by definition, anti-totalitarian.\"
And, none of THAT sentence is true either.
You should learn what the word \"definition\" means. Also, investigate the phrase \"by definition.\" You seem quite unclear on both of them.

Don't you just wish you can build a time machine so you can place fuck-wits like this guy in front of, say Hitler and some of his SS for example, and have him run his mouth about how much of a commie-leftist Hitler is to his face?

\"So many wrong statements....so little time.\"
Not really. He just said the same thing over and over.

That was my initial reaction, by the way. Get a dictionary.

FishyFred: Well it's been apparent to me that to get it through to these people you need to repeat it about 100 times more than they say it, that’s what would take a long time.

I'm sorry, but while Communism may well be a leftist ideology, Facism (there is no need to list Nazism as well, since that is fascism) is absolutely right wing. It's as far to the right as you can get, really.
To make your statement even more ridiculous, American liberalism can not possibly be related to both Communism and Fascism, since they are essentially polar opposites on the ideological spectrum.
And the right is not, by definition, anti-totalitarian. It can be anti-totalitarian, but our current administration sure as hell isn't.

Which is why organizations like the ACLU are \"leftist.\" Oh, wait, the ACLU is really bad, isn't it? We can't have people defending the Constitution!
Say that \"rightist can't be totalitarian\" again, wouldja?

Somebody slept through high school history. Hitler HATED communism; he and the fascist Nazis DEFINE right wing totalitarianism.
Just because you want to kiss Dubya's ass doesn't mean that the political right isn't entirely capable of totalitarianism, as they are proving almost every day.
Learn some history, for the love of everything honest.

How dishonest. Any average ten-year-old could figure out that social conservatism is social conservatism by comparing their policies to liberal policies.

FWRP was appropriate for this, but I'd have also suggested an \"Unclear on the Concept\" award.

Round and round the logic goes! Where it stops, nobody knows!

Ah, classic Republican 'thinking'. The world is divided into two unequal groups.
The Important group = Me.
The Unimportant stuff = everything else.
(Furthermore I don't notice the unimportant stuff unless I'm hating it, or trying to make myself feel better by denigrating it, but obviously all unimportant stuff is the same shit)

I don't like peas. I don't like people from the subcontinent. \"Therefore\" all Indians are green and squishy.
9/30/2006 2:47:17 AM
See, this is the issue with how the far-right nutjobs have turned \"liberal\" into a dirty word...here's the logic:
Coservative = good
Liberal = bad
Totalitarian = bad
therefore, Totalitarian = liberal

Use a dictionary when spouting definitions, or you'll sound as stupid as this idiot.
9/30/2006 3:55:21 AM
you fucking dumbass! do some academic research first before listening slavishly to your fundie priest. Sod off.

This guy lives in an alternative bizarro universe. Let´s rehearse SINCE WHEN NAZISM AND FASCISM ARE LEFTISH?
9/30/2006 11:24:28 AM
Considering how clueless fundies seem to be about politics, I think they should be made to undertake a Political Ideologies class in high school and they won't be allowed to pass until they demonstrate their understanding of ideologies is worthy of a grade of A.

These people scare me, with their word redefinition.

\"Left\" and \"right\" don't adequately describe political views. Both can be totalitarian, both can be libertarian to varying degrees. In fact, of the libertarians I know, only a few would identify as right-wing if forced to pick one of the two ... and even they despise Bush.
