27 August 2017. There is No Equivalence Between Right and Left

_________________________

Charlottesville showed us the ugly face of the Hard Right. Such people don’t typify most people who identify as “conservative”. However, do note that the authorities treated them far more leniently than they would Native Americans or blacks. If armed blacks or Natives had confronted police, I fear that fighting would’ve broken out. The Hard Right and Marxists aren’t equivalent. The Hard Right are the children of fascism… that group ran brutally-efficient killing factories that murdered millions over a short space of four years. The Left (there is no “anti-fa”… that’s a media invention) are the children of Marxism… a group that ameliorated the lot of millions. Yes… they ran labour camps… but not “death factories” as the fascists did. You could survive the GULag (and most did), but you didn’t survive an extermination camp… they killed virtually all new arrivals.

No… Marxists and fascists (and their American analogues) aren’t equivalent. However… do note that many American “conservatives” won’t distance themselves from the armed Hard Right and from armed thieving thugs like the Bundy family (who used public land as though it was their private property). That’s disturbing…
