Why take the “fuck white people” comments from liberals seriously and not the Nazi stuff? Isn’t it worse to joke about genocides that have actually happened?

The Black Harvest is way more heartwarming than you'd expect from a coven of warlocks. I love those guys. <3 (Also, it's nice that the storyline has restored some of what was cut back in MoP.)

I think the idea that bigger government = more progressive is a common mistake on both the left and the right. A bigger government isn’t good unless it comes with more direct democracy. There should...

They were getting killed, enslaved, and having their land taken by military force, dude. Also, being denied any representation in government is different from having to share power.

I’ve never seen actual Marxists use the term “cultural Marxism” to criticize identity politics, though. Marxism kind of has to involve class by definition. People who don’t focus on class at all are...

Some kinds of Marxism, like Maoism-Third Worldism, do have ties to SJ as seen on Tumblr, but others are critical of it.

I’ve never been able to relate to the concept of patriotism, so I do find it weird when liberals do that. (It’s one of many reasons I’d rather identify as a leftist/socialist now.) Shouldn’t we be...
