I agree, the president should not be sending troops into states – and he legally might not be able to anyway – nevertheless, the tone in this speech is strong and direct.

This is bootlickery in its purest possible form; praising a leader not for their policies or their values, but for the tone of their blustering; the crudest form of charisma, second only to dick jokes.

As an avowed independent, I don’t endorse a major party or candidate. And it feels insane to have to say this , but I don’t support fascism, and I don’t support an authoritarian state. I believe in a civilised society and that we all have to work toward that.

"I only have the most general liberal values, I want to seem as inoffensive as possible; but I still love the taste of tanned animal hide."

anarcho-capitalist socialist moderate I-don’t know

"Anarcho" is just a word that makes your ideology sound cooler. It doesn't actually mean anything.

He has campaigned for political reform. In the 2016 election, he supported Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

Imagine being such a fucking loser that you support a side that everyone knows will fail in a rigged game that no one should waste time playing.

Mark Zuckerberg has tiptoed his way through this pandemic with nary a scratch. But let’s be honest, he might be the most dangerous man in this article.

And carrot might very well be the most delicious vegetable in this sentence.

He talks about building space colonies, and we assume he’s out to save himself. But what if he’s actually out to save humanity?

Yay, when the environmental collapse has made Earth unlivable, we'll all get to party at Bezo's space station. I can't wait!

I think that has to do with an emphasis on eliminating the state and capitalism over eliminating authority itself in introductory anarchist material. Chomsky's cool and all, but he's more socialist than anarchist and anarcho-communism is just communism without the associated baggage. Both of these also happen to be really popular introductions to anarchism, at least in the US.

Wet tissue strength argument that is basically "the SJWs kept bullying white people so now I'm a nazi" painted red and used as a "threat".



weak association with anarchism and glaringly obvious sympathy towards MLs

Accusing anarchists of destroying "left unity" because freedom of association apparently doesn't mean anything and being "mean" to Leninists prevents The Revolution ™

im sensing some level of dishonesty here i wonder why

I've been informed this was bait made as a joke to see who in the comments would genuinely defend it.

They chose to work that job, there are certain types of people who go into law enforcement. It tends to lean conservative, you really cannot be a cop and be that left wing tbh. You would have to abandon so many of your principles by enforcing laws written by racists. In addition, many white nationalists type go into law enforcement, it is a trend. Some groups even do training and encourage people to go to the police academy.

The whole criminal justice system is built on a racist foundation in the US. The only involvement decent people should have is in the legal defense area. The pressure that the police have they create themselves. They are so involved with the war on drugs that it puts them deep into peoples lives where they should not be. Of course it causes tension.
