What you don't seem to realise (judging by your hundred or so posts over the past day) is that communism and fascism are both diametrically opposed to each other as ideologies - so much so that conflating them is dangerously ignorant at best. The former aims for a classless, stateless, and moneyless society and is based on internationalism. The latter emphasises the merger of corporate and state power, traditionalism/social conservatism, hierarchy and class collaborationism as well as institutionalised racism. They couldn't be more different. That you labelled the protestors' shutting down of the Milo event as being 'fascist' is dangerously ignorant and displays no understanding of what the ideology really is.
I should have been more clearer. The point I was trying to make is for a group that is anti fascist the extreme left employs a lot of the same tactics.....Terror. Simple as that.

Oh I know you don't, there's some here who think he's actually good - unfortunately.

[QUOTE=bono_212;8140925]I have no idea what you're even talking about. Are you suggesting that by being opposed to fascism makes one a communist?


No I am saying don't employ the same tactics when you are protesting against it.....It makes you like hypocrites.

Also I will say you do have idiots that show up at these things simply because its an excuse to break crap and stir **** up so even if the protest has a noble cause it gets hijacked.....That is a problem a big one.

There is an objectively right answer.

I honestly haven't a clue as to what you are talking about here.

They are protesting fascism by behaving like communists? Huh?

His book sales jumped 12,000% overnight.


This interview from last night sums up his appeal. Speaks extremely well extemporaneously. Rush Limbaugh train of thought conservative intellect + Howard Stern Sex crazed brain + Fashions himself as the SJW kryptonite.

Makes some really good points about the future "free market" of academia. Worth a watch.

They are employing the same tactics.....Fear and intimidation and violence so how does that make it better?

Milo's much more knowingly engaged in performance art than people give him credit for, I suspect

THIS

I think Breitbart specifically sought him out, told him what views to take, specifically places him in moments and areas where emotions might get the worst of people, then play victim and make bank. He's just another version of Ann Coulter, their views are more designed rather than personal principled passionate views.

Would just like to add my two cents on Milo - he is a fucking cunt, and it's completely irrelevant that he's a gay Jew who dates black people or whatever. All the conservatives who love him use that as justification for why he's so great, it literally doesn't fucking matter at all. He incites harassment. Someone said earlier that he always wins arguments against the left, which isn't true at all, he's impossible to argue with because he believes his own bullshit and will never concede anything. That's not an argument, that's a childish cockhead.

The violent protests? Not great. But if, like Richard Spencer, he becomes scared of going outside, then that's a win in my book.
