Random American wrote:@Goranhammer Standard GOP bullshit talking points. Also, I like how you use "daddy government" as if liberals and leftists actually worship the state when they don't. "Liberal = Big Government, Conservative = small government" is at best an elementary school level of understanding of American politics and it at best is a misrepresentation. Not that everyone who actually is concerned with this virus qualifies as either anyway.
Part of the liberal/extreme left do worship the state.
They want the state to act as nanny state, and to support their ideals (BLM, welfare, antifa, etc).
They would love to see a government that enters right wing homes and takes people to jail for thought crime.
The right-wing supports big government in some cases, but most of the time it's more of a laissez faire policy. For example if Antifa didn't riot in the streets, right wingers wouldn't call for their dismantlement. It's when civil unrest is involved that right wingers support crackdowns. On the other hand, extreme leftists want any right winger to be hunted down on the basis of thought alone. This is why they want to apply extreme censorship both online and IRL.
It would be foolish to deny that the extreme left is ideologically borne out of far left marxist ideology imported in the USA around the time of WW2.
Of course I'd venture to say that mainstream liberals like you are completely not on board with marxist ideology.
