Anyone who threatens violence or acts out violently based on nationalism. Why do you ask? Are you two feeling guilty about your choices in apparel or something?

It's a play on a theme from the 2000's and muslin terrorists for fucks sake. Good to know the right still can't recognize satire when they see it. :lol:

the thing about extreme Nationalism is... it doesn't recognize itself in the mirror
because it gets to use words like pride and love to describe itself

its fascinating
When love is the word used to describe hate
and pride is used instead of fear

Hard to recognize that when it's looking back at you

Excellent points! Along the same lines, love of the working or middle class can lead to socialism? :)

Agreed,
Socialism reveals itself as a hatred of the wealthy
though it is born from a love of the working class

I don’t think that’s what he exactly meant. :lol:

I fear my government and these gestapo BlM officers.

I love hunting managed game units and fishing regulated creeks that still hold fish.

So, you consider some portion of the government to be evil...am I reading that correctly???

Governments can be evil. Government is not evil...or it’s a neccessary evil.

Im with you on overbearing regulations to a degree but define “docile”. For instance, let’s say I’m on the same creek as the folks in the first article. regardless if it was a dam or stock pond, if I live upstream and I’m managing my portion of the creek form west slope cutthroat why should he introduce non-native brooks and browns which will invariably migrate upstream and tip the balance on my property? If I live downstream, what right does he have to alter the natural flow and discharge on to my property by holding water back?

Some administration and regulation is required because humans can be selfish assholes. That’s the reality based answer to “government is evil”. It would be nice if we didn’t need a court system either for resolving disputes...but some people are assholes.

Hence...necessary evil.

Don’t think for one second I’m not seeing this little trap you set. :ohno:

Milton Friedman talked about a need for universal basic income in the 60’s.

Milton Friedman...progressive.

Nick Hanauer...socialist.

Elon Musk...socialist.

It is born from a love of the working class and that lasts about ten seconds.

Every Socialist movement in history has been retributive and the ones we are seeing now are no different.

Though most past movements have been solely along lines of class ... the one we are seeing here has decided to add gender and race as tickets to the proletariat.

Is that the same EPA that's running under a Republican administration? Didn't they get the memo about freedom?

No, not in regards to the Wyoming farmer. Check the article dates. All that was under the Obama EPA..
