No, yours is an "imaginary person argument." You keep telling me about all these people who are allegedly horribly infected with conservatism, and yet can't find them.
Antifa and BLM are genuine issue driven groups and their complaints are authentic.
Which "complaints" are those? Antifa is an ideological organization funded by guys like Soros and primarily peopled with spoiled, middle class whites. BLM was started by three avowed, self-identified Marxists, with the pure objective of disrupting the existing order, but without any plan at all at doing any good for blacks...as you can see from the fact that they've made urban neighbourhoods immeasurably worse, and achieve nothing for the very people they claim to represent.
Done. I will bet I know far more about it than you do. I can tell by what you've tried to put past me. You don't know the history of the Democrats, of slavery, of Reconstruction, of segregation, or even of BLM or Antifa. That's abundantly clear.Study a little American history,
Ask why Democrat-dominated towns like LA, Chicago, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Seattle, and so on are hellholes of black misery. I've got news for you: the Republicans got rid of slavery at the time of the Civil War, and defeated Democrat segregationists back in the '60s. We live in the age of school integration, equal opportunity, and even of affirmative action. But why have the benefits not reached the urban poor in Democrat run cities? Ask yourself that.Ask why blacks are stuck in dire urban conditions.
You should say, "...a rabid and completely suicidal rush to Socialism." There's really nothing "progressive" about it, since it is a brain-dead return to failed ideology and failed economic strategies. Anybody who knew anything about the real history of Socialism should run from it screaming. But historical ignorance is unfortunately a feature of our age.I do agree there is a movement toward progressive values.
