the fact that you think FDR was not anti-lynching or you mean to imply it

I'm laughing

How does Antifa "predominate a big chunk of the media"? That's a ridiculous claim. And don't try to associate Antifa with the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign, it makes no sense.

With Trump in charge I feel like the evil empire and I'm rooting for the ragtag other side

Or maybe I should say even more the evil empire

The Syrian war is a fully flegded imperialist war. The recent involvement from the US is alarming and should serve as a wake-up call to all peace-minded individuals. We who live in imperialist countries need to build a strong anti-war movement, like the ones that existed during the Vietnam and Iraq wars. I suggest checking if the PSL is active in your area, they're a Marxist party that spends a lot of effort on anti-imperialism and anti-war.

The Democratic Party and the GOP are both right-wing. Labelling Hillary Clinton as "left-wing" makes the term completely meaningless.

Also, FDR didn't win the war, the USA didn't win the war, and the nukes over Japan didn't win the war (Japan would've surrendered anyway). For the sake of nuance: I would have been speaking German right now if it hadn't been for the Red Army. Seventy years ago there were literally hanging posters in Norwegian cities giving the Soviet Union (and Stalin!) credit for having liberated Norway from the Nazis. It sounds ridiculous now, but it was a normal sentiment back then. Today it's different, we're nearly told that the US won the war with help from the Allies. And it almost seems to me like some people are trying to create a cult of personality around Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Here in the U.S. that meme is more in reference to common kneejerk reactions from U.S. liberals to people challenging their views. Lets think about it.

Most media outlet lean heavily liberal - check

How Biased Is Your Media?: A New Freakonomics Radio Podcast - Freakonomics Freakonomics

http://www.businessinsider.com/proof...ademia-2014-11

Most major universities throughout the U.S. are "liberal" (American interpretation of it anyway) - check

Many graduating from these universities become writers for all the major and secondary media outlets outside of the Fox News / Breitbart-sphere....check check check.

The end result is you have a generation of self-proclaimed "liberals" writing and propagating their views who started off as the sort of SJWs the meme I posted referenced...and they are the majority right now.

Also watch this:

What history tells us is Hitler blunders by attempting to survive a Russian winter just like Napoleon, plus attempting a war on two fronts

The point really wasn't that FDR physically murdered the third Reich with his bare hands

Don't get me wrong btw Japanese American Internment is a black mark on our history forever

Some times I feel like I could just report the facts of what's going on. Like boring ass plain facts and I'd be accused of being liberal for it.

I'm also getting sick of these pandering bull**** fake news sites that make tons of money off of their ****ty over exaggerated face book videos. All they do is say, "Hey, black people, gay people, women, you're all victims, this system is against you, you will never succeed". It's like, they make money off of making people feel alienated. Not to say those people don't have problems, but when they go out of their way to post hyperbole or just flat out fake stories to do it, it's annoying.

And cultural appropriation is ****ing stupid. Oh, I'm not supposed to braid my hair because it's stealing from black culture. Well I'm actually trying to steel it from native culture. And I'm a very small fraction native so I can do it according to your stupid rules. **** those rules. I'll start wearing panchos to spite you.

Having a hard time getting to your bottom line point of this post. Quite a bit of ranting and raving is making it hard to make sense.

Spell it out in 15 words or less please so I can intelligently respond.

3 points.

1st summed up by elph, reality has a liberal bias.

2nd is there are too many lying news outlets that pander to the liberal crowd with bull**** on facebook.

3rd Cultural appropriation is a stupid concept SJWs invented to be outraged because it's a hobby to them.

Edit: Haven't you learned by now that I like to ramble about pointless **** half the time?

I'd even go as far as to say reality has a communist bias.

Fox News has higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined. Where do the sheep roost?

See my previous post. Also, go suck Rush Limbaugh's dick.
