He basically created a villain out of antifa in order to distract from the actual violence.

The only thing that happened was that Trump noticed them, called them terrorists, and then all unthinking Republicans agreed with him.

I just came across this on Instagram, many are sharing it. (Note, it's also in a twitter thread, that's where I got the pics' links)
So "Progressives" have entered the book burning phase.
Can someone explain to me how exactly are these people considered liberals?
I mean, for fuck's sake, Destroying books, historical revisionism, discrediting science based on feelings, extreme ideological purity standards, etc; How is this even being allowed to happen?
There should be a very clear line drawn between cultural and societal progress and destroying things you don't like and calling it progress.
Racism, sexism, etc are bad, but you don't combat it by destroying books from an era when it was the standard.
And you sure as hell don't combat them by enforcing racial or gender quotas and all these other bullshit ideas.
Everything seems to indicate that the far left has indeed taken a radical turn into becoming just another one of those discredited and outdated ideological movements that belong nowhere other than the trash can of history along with all other extreme movements of both the left and the right, right down there along with communism, fascism, Christian theocracy, and hopefully soon, Islamism, etc.
There are plenty of right wingers trying to forcibly teach creationism instead of the normal curriculum and the big bang, theory of evolution..
Frankly, you say what you like about the commies and anarchs on here, but they seem rather more well-read and fascinated by old literature.
You're extrapolating based on one twitter post. I know you're a lot more clever than that.
I wouldn't just moan about lefties doing it, it's not very fair. As you said, there are many others who would do it.
Even though I'm a Theocrat of sorts, I'd never force my ideas on anyone else or expect others to live in my type of society.
