Conservatives like Tucker Carlson are increasingly resorting to espousing theories like "the Great Replacement".

That is straight out of the last great American white supremacist heyday, the 1920's.

...and they're being more open and bold about it. No more masks. We now know who they are. smile

We're forced to use their terminology because their reality distortion mu-sheen has ruined the word "liberal" for now. That's because Dennis Prager has been edge-a-muh-catin contards that "liberal" means "classical liberal", which means RW Libertarian in this country.

Once again, they've thrown a lot of money at the problem, organized money. They have think tank armies. We have pimples and social justice warriors who can whine and cry really loud.

We have to use the term "lefty" now.
Sorry, I don't write the rules!

Out of curiosity, who would those rational non-emotional voices be attached to?


As it happens, mostly to people who have exited the Republican Party, some of whom are now counseling OTHER former Republicans to vote Democrat and thus destroy the current Republican Party in order to pave the way for their eventual return...maybe in a generation if we don't screw things up.

One of my favorite questions to ask the modern Righty is: How's that "Jews will not replace us" working out for you? laugh

Funny how so many of these Alt-Right Manifestos are now claiming that Mexicans (dog-whistle for everybody from South of the border) and Muslims are coming to this country and replacing us at all the good jobs. They are repudiating White Supremacy! They claim we need to keep immigrants out because they are superior.

Sounds like some whiny little bitches to me, who can't get out of Mom's basement and get an education and a good job. So they fantasize about killing "their oppressors" while they build up their gun collection.

One of these days maybe we can reclaim some stolen ground and admit that we are in fact socialists and that we think people matter more than money.

That's why I refer to myself as an "eco-social democrat", because I believe in an eco-social market economy. We need eco-social democracy (IP&S).
