The problem with so many on the left is that they aren't actually liberals.

They don't believe in individual liberty. Too many are collectivists who love identity politics and political correctness.

They are quite illiberal.

You're right I should said demarcates, liberals and the like. It just seems like the protesters are displaying the kind of stereotype that was given to Trump supporters. Setting things and fire, throwing fire bombs at police etc. I just thought that was supposed to be a more intelligent and peaceful demographic.


Its not like everyone who hates trump is protesting his presidency...and I imagine it would be the less intelligent of the bunch who are acting violently.

I was reading about KKK pamphlets being dropped and racist graffiti being sprayed at campuses and elsewhere, and my first thought was it's probably them who are doing that.


Or maybe kkk members and white supremacists and racists passed pamplets and droped racist graffiti...they aren't exactly a great group of people either.

Aren't Metzger and the extreme right collectivists?
Come to think of it the Nazis referred to themselves as "national socialists"
sounds pretty collectvist to me...
