Hypocrisy of the Left

I am really curious as to how the Left can support some of the candidates they do.

The "ok boomer" thing was some twitter left thing to act like old people don't know what they are talking about, yet they push Biden and Pelosi and Feinstein and Biden. All of these old "boomers" that are praised and supported.

Why is it that you are against the "1%" yet you promote and elect the same people you are supposedly against? They act like they are going to do something to the Big Corporations I suppose, but they never end up hurting their own bottom line. These fuckers have been in office profiting for decades as "public servants".

Speaking of, why is it that you guys aren't pushing for more new young blood or trying to get rid of the "monarchy" families that exist? Trudeau, Clintons, Bidens, (I guess you were against Bush 2 but that was just because he was a republican). Why are we pushing these same people over and over even when they have a terrible track record of actually doing anything? They talk big but that's it. And your argument of "well the right wont let them get anything done" falls flat when they have been in office for 40+ years.

I mean shit that the left should be all for. More bailouts for everyday citizens during the covid pandemic? The left votes against it and are supported by their voters.

Trump is suddenly some huge boogeyman that is "destroying this country". Yeah he says a lot of dumb shit. But what has he done that has really had any negative effect on any of your lives personally?

Your for secure elections but against voter ID.

The “left” hates Pelosi, Biden and Feinstein.

The leftist candidate was Bernie so not sure how he wouldn’t do something against big corporations given that is his entire platform.

I don’t think leftists actually support dynasty families? They literally voted for Markey over Kennedy.

The leftists supported a $3 trillion COVID bill passed by the House that the Republicans wouldn’t even take up for a vote in the Senate.

Because the media (and Twitter accounts like Taco Bell) tell them who to vote for.

Yet they voted them in to power for half a century and just re-upped Pelosi for another term after she just cost them a bunch of seats in the House. Uh huh.

They may not be entirely supportive of dynasty families, just dynasties in general.

You mean the 3 trillion dollar COVID relief plan full of shit that had nothing to do with COVID, including letting a bunch of criminals out of jail?

I didn't even mention Racism. Which the left is so against and despises racists with all of their being. Yet when a person of color decides they aren't some huge hive mind and have individuality and can vote for someone other than the left, they are suddenly "no longer black". Does nobody on the left see the hypocrisy in that shit?

The Left is not against racism, they love their racists. They just want their racists to spew hatred on a specific color because most of them have a high degree of self-loathing. Plus:

Robert fucking Byrd.

Isn't it obvious by now? This must be a redpill moment for you : The left couldn't care less about racism, sexism, trans rights or any of that bullshit. These are merely means to attack the middle class. There is a reason 'social justice' borrows so much from marxism.

Not for me. I was already on that side. I am just surprised at the amount of hypocrisy and saying one thing and voting for another. It's as if they have no backbone.

Lefties literally can't see hypocricy, cause & effect, or evidence of voter fraud. Prerequisites of joining the hive-mind.

Leftism is a wide spectrum so there should be hypocrisy for everything. The far left anti corporate is far different from the moderate Biden voter. Technically there isn’t enough political parties for encapsulate the left.

Then why are you surprised when the left shames republican black voters? They are angry that these people take away from their 'progressive' agenda. Its not about caring about black people. Its about pretending to care so you get black voters on your side, to implement policies entirely diverged from helping black people: Stealing from 'privileged' classes. Remember 'anti racism' is just a component of their propaganda, just like white male privilege, and LGBTQ oppression, so that they can implement a class system, which will in the end, hurt quite a lot of black people.

And yet, every single election, the "left" lines up behind another corporate-backed, pro-war shill who promises a few crumbs but never delivers. You'd think the "far left anti corporate" would have a hard time voting for Wall Street's preferred candidate every national election, and yet every time they line up and bend over.

Deep in the heart of Texas
Bernie bros are retarded straight up. For the second straight election his nomination was stolen from him (Dominion involved) and he just laps it up and asks for more. Absolute cuck.
If this year has taught me anything it’s a return to many of my thought patterns as a teenager. As I grew older I mistakenly thought myself a liberal/progressive but I’m not so sure anymore. While I do have leanings in certain areas I find myself rejecting their platform wholesale more and more. A year + ago I felt something had to change but I couldn’t quite put my thumb on it. Constant bombardment with OMB, billions of dead black kids, no financial hope for anyone not already extraordinarily wealthy etc., etc.

I started to grow weary of IdPol and CRT but wasn’t connecting the dots. Where I was getting my information was key. Opposition is outright silenced, mocked and ridiculed... but I loathe these sorts of tactics. A boot on your neck is a boot regardless who’s wearing it. Honestly? It was causing me anxiety. I don’t know where to look, who to trust and there is just too much damn info and I just don’t have enough time. I fell in love with this place around a decade ago so when the split occurred I made like a good little lemming and followed my imaginary friends. Problem is I grew increasingly sick of the nonsense and noticed myself typing shit I knew I would be banned for then erasing it on a very frequent basis. This, of course, isn’t tenable.

I liked things Bernie said. I knew free shit for everyone wasn’t truly possible but being working class (and with a great deal of sympathy for my brothers and sisters) he said things that connected with me. He could get the conversation started, right?! The checks and balances would keep the horrible aspects of socialism from sinking it’s hooks in too deep in the country I love, right? I gave him a few bucks here and there, this guy will stand up to the corporations and give us little guys a fair shake surely!

Then one day I didn’t hit delete, I hit post instead. I was sure I was on a list already for previously posting that I would *almost* prefer voting for Trump over Biden, that Biden disgusted me. I was done listening to little bitches moan about bootstraps and other nonsense. I’ve work(ed) extremely hard for many years and have always had that drive and have enjoyed the fruits of that work. I just want to be fairly compensated for it, right? I just want every American to have access to affordable healthcare, clean water, food, a roof over their head and fuck me if there isn’t enough for everyone.

I caught a temp. I literally laughed about it and after about a minute I logged back in here to see if the website was performing stably and just how much of a right wing cesspool it had become. Sitting at the airport I realized this was my home and I was graciously welcomed back. I still clung to some vestiges of my programming and certain posts/posters grated. But I was thankful that their arguments COULD be made.

A fancy new illness was rearing it’s head. The following 10 months went pretty much exactly how I expected and here we are. My love for hard working Americans will never change and watching them being systematically crushed and lives being destroyed hurts me on a fundamental level. To see Bernie bend and scrape in the fashion he did sickens me. Fighting for the little guy, huh?! Fuck you, you spineless dreck.

How about you spread the wealth like you did your legs and give me my money back you ineffectual coward?!

I love you GAF, thank you so much for helping me find my center again and re-igniting my love for the greatest country there ever has been, and ever will be 🥰

Oh well? I guess they get some stuff (student loan forgiveness or w/e Biden promised) and lose some stuff (go easy on Wall Street) versus nothing with trump. I guess those are the decisions leftists have to make due to the lack of further left parties.

I do like how it’s quite simple being a republican. I get to stick to my preference and the party endorses it wholly and that never changes. I guess far lefties don’t get that, and moderates didn’t get that with Bernie.

i went through the same feelings somewhat but here on OLD-GAF prior to the split and got permed by Besada when I finally called them out on the ongoing hypocrisy. I went by Bamelin back then, everyone’s favorite friendly Sony PlayStation MVP.

When the split happened, I started a new account here as I could see EviLore EviLore was now committed to starting over minus all the bullshit that plagued GAF under the progressives. The #Metoo bullshit he went through I think opened his eyes to the dangers of progressive mob justice. Eventually I asked and my previous ban was rescinded as it was a bullshit ban to begin with — kinda like 90% of the bans over at REEE today. Kept my new name as a symbol of a new beginning.

So far it’s been great. The site‘s stance on free expression is driving people back in droves as REEE falls apart under the authoritarian ideological hell that almost destroyed GAF.

In retrospect the absolute worst of the Progressive Puritans self cleansing themselves from the site in their Power Grab it was the best thing that could have happened to GAF. It’s given Evilore, the mods and those of us who stayed an opportunity to not only make GAF Great Again, but the opportunity to make the site even Greater. Look at the gaming side ... it is thriving now.

And all it took was putting the political bullshit aside, tossing toxic progressive ideology out the window and letting gamers talk about games.

Politics side has been great too. I must say though it’s amusing watching reee progressives still over there come back to post .... ironically they want the freedom to debate they snuffed out over there.

The “left” hates Pelosi, Biden and Feinstein.
It is fluid. Sometimes the far-left absolutely loves Pelosi.

You remember how they were all so ecstatic about "president pelosi" over the last few years?
Several times even! She was the best thing since sliced bread, until Trump is no longer President and she is suddenly a daemon.
And now they hate her.

It is like they lack any consistency or convictions. It is all "what is the thought I should have today?"
I think they can only see things as black or white and they can only focus on one enemy at a time.

It is one of the few discussion boards that i know of that has a politics section that consciously attempts to accommodate left and right in a moderated space.

Most importantly it does that moderation with NO ideological slant aside from a ferocious dedication to free speech and civil discourse. It’s ... it’s refreshing compared to almost everywhere else.

Oh I know all about the hypocrisy of the Left.

Here in the Philippines, the Left/Liberal side loves to preach about social justice and human rights. They always love to rail against our police and military for their 'abuses' of the common man.

Yet those same Lefties outright support communist fronts like the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and it's armed wing the New People's Army (NPA) in trying to undermine the government and it's armed forces. I don't see them shedding tears when our soldiers and policemen are shot dead by the NPA.

The US Democrats support of BLM/Antifa does not surprise me. It's a tried and true formula that's been tested here.

Fuck the Left and their two faced tactics.

I think anyone with anything to do with the Trump presidency lambasting another party for hypocrisy is a strong case of the pot calling the kettle black.. for one of a galaxy of examples; getting indignant about a minority of BLM anti-racism protestors destroying property:


Edit: for the record, this is an indictment of right wing hypocrisy, not a defense of the left.

That's a pretty big reach. Well, I guess it's not if you're implying cross-generational transfer of guilt. In that case, you can probably justify anything.

You'd have to be pretty determined to disagree with my username to think i was, at any point, drawing a direct equivalence between trump supporters and those murderers. I'm saying it's rich for people to get angry about a minority of BLM protestors damaging property, when black property has been routinely destroyed in racist attacks throughout history.

Edit: Seriously guys, is there some right wing page out there which tells you some kind of forum political posting playbook? "You already knew that" am i supposed to do anything other than look right through this pathetic dig?

That was 103 years ago and everyone involved is dead. There is nobody left alive to hold accountable. Everyone today would look back in horror of what happened and agree it was a terrible

The BLM domestic terrorists of today are very much alive to be held accountable.

And that logic is retarded. Rioting and looting is a crime. Destroying property is a crime. Murdering people is a crime. All things that have happened during these BLM riots.

Are people supposed to turn around and say"well, I guess it okay. They are black so they are above the law, and above right and wrong. I guess this balances out the red summer, an event from 100 years ago."

I think when you can automate your propaganda it doesn't really matter anymore WHAT is said, it just matters that the right people hear it.

Find things that stick and keep churning.

This is what you get when you play identity politics in a digital world: Nothing of substance.
What you should be getting instead is the support of the people working the steelmills and such.

The left has harnessed emotion to get votes. Look how emotional they all are.

>shrug< you're not gonna let me go without taking shots, so I'll leave it there, you can disagree if you want. I think it's entirely appropriate for whites to feel bad about their history around the world, and try to make things better. And i think the point stands that painting that minority of BLM as the only, or worst, or least morally defensible violent group in the country is horse shit.

None of the violent groups that commit actual crimes are morally defensible. They are all pieces of shit.

Modern leftism is literally a walking/talking contradiction.

Modern leftism: I am anti-establishment and I really hate the system, I hate corporations, I hate wall street, I hate war, I hate warhawks, I hate CIA, FBI, NSA, I hate big pharma, I hate big tech, etc

Also modern leftism: Votes for a 47 year career politician who voted for war, helped build the system, has the backing from the majority of corporations, has the backing from wall street, has the backing from warhawks, has the backing of the intelligence community, has the backing from big pharma, has the major backing of big tech, etc.

Bullshit. Let me know next time MAGA people goes on a spree and burns down a city.

BLM is a violent communist terrorist organization, but lets explain away their crimes by showing "bad shit happened >100 years ago."
Next are you going to explain away Antifa terrorist violence because "nazis in 1942 were bad?"

Sorry, BLM is a marxist terror organization and should be put down by force next time they start a riot or looting.
You just sad because people say your side are the bad ones, and evidence seems to suggest it is true.

Brown people from the middle east captured and held a magnitude more white europeans as slaves than the whole north-atlantic slave trade.
We gonna go call out wrongs that happened centuries ago and build our entire life around it?
No.

I think most of europe just accepted history is history and then moved on.

When will YOU call for justice for the millions of white europeans that were made slaves in the middle east?
You know, no one will follow you on that crusade since it happened centuries ago and people have more important shit to worry about than what happened before grandpa was born.
