Accusing someone of conducting psyops for a foreign government because they disagree with you is not a sane or normal thing for a person to do in political discourse.

Which is, of course, precisely what you are doing in this entire article. You literally accuse the Dems of engaging in psyops because they disagree with you.

You need to learn the difference between punching up and punching down. Protesting for LGBT and women’s rights is punching up, against a culture which oppresses LGBT and women. The “patriotic”, “religious” right punches down. Whether you want to admit it or not, the actual fascists are wrapped in a flag and carrying a Bible. These people just elected Trump. The Senate and Electoral College are permanently gerrymandered in their favor. They have enormous power, beyond their numbers, because they get more votes in the Senate and the EC. And they use that power to enforce their rigid agenda on the rest of us. That’s fascism. Learn to recognize it. Demanding equal rights cannot be fascist, by definition, pussyhats and rainbow flags notwithstanding.

You also need to learn that it’s OK for other people to have common cause with you and yet have different priorities. This doesn’t make them the enemy. It’s absolutely bizarre that you consider the rainbow flag a symbol of fascism when LGBT folks have been victims of societal and police oppression for so long. You think they don’t have common cause with Black Lives Matter? You seriously want to call women fascists because they’re sick of having to put up with the Donald Trumps, Harvey Weinsteins, and Matt Lauers of the world? You think they don’t have common cause with your opposition to the endless GWOT?

All you’re doing with your paranoid nonsense is alienating people who would otherwise be on your side, just because the list of things they are opposed to is arranged in a somewhat different priority. I am so sick of this kind of myopia. You think unless people only want to work on your number one priority, they are the enemy, nay fascists. What’s wrong with you?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
