The Political Spectrum was not designed to weigh political disagreements between the right and the left. Instead, it is meant to illustrate the progression of a political system from complete control over people, to having no power at all. The actual spectrum classifies the far left as totalitarian, being entirely controlled by one or a few. The far right is classified as being an ochlocracy or having no form of government.
The radical far left has historically been associated with communism, Nazism, fascism, dictators, and socialism. The radical far right has predominantly been associated with mob rule.
The left classifies Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as far right dictators due to their disdain for Communism. As a result, they .” as anti-socialists. This could not be further from the truth. The mischaracterization is merely an attempt by the left to rewrite history.
According to UNESCO, the Palestinians, and the Muslim States, Israel, and the Jewish People have no right to Jerusalem. It is this fake belief that until Donald Trump became president kept the U.S. from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish world. Most of the world outside America continues to believe the Palestinian/Muslim propaganda that ignores that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims, reported Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were the property of the Jewish people.
Since the election of Barack Obama, an admitted progressive, there are misconceptions of the origins, values, and strands of progressivism. Who were the original progressives? Where did their ideas come from? What motivated their actions? What goals for society and government did they have? What social doctrines influenced their convergence? Is past progressive ideology relative to our current progressivism? The past and present Progressive Eras are as dissimilar as heaven is to hell.
John Wayne was an overcompensating pawn — if you take The Atlantic’s word for it.
Reviewing Nancy Shoenberger’s book, “Wayne and Ford: The Films, the Friendship, and the Forging of an American Hero” in this month’s issue of the once-great magazine, Stephen Metcalf soliloquizes on the two icons of early American cinema: director John Ford and his protegé: The Duke himself.
Ford was a manic, closeted homosexual, Metcalf implies. Wayne, a “hollow” shell of a propaganda stunt: a bumbling buffoon used naively to propel the myth of American masculinity on the big screen.
Jefferson said the school community wanted to rename the campus “to reflect a person who fully represents ideals and public stances consistent with what we want our children to believe about themselves.”
“I wholeheartedly agree with the name,” said Board President Camille Simms.
Isabelle Benoit, a historian with Tempora, the organisation that designed the exhibition, told AP: “We want to make clear to Europeans that Islam is part of European civilisation and that it isn’t a recent import but has roots going back 13 centuries.”
One month after white nationalists stormed the Rotunda at the University of Virginia, bearing tiki torches and chanting, “You will not replace us,” a smaller but equally vocal crowd of protesters took to the Rotunda on Tuesday night, covering a statue of Thomas Jefferson in a black shroud, which was removed sometime after midnight Wednesday.
The violence in Charlottesville on August 12 has been used to promote the left’s box of political chocolates: Republicans are addicted to racism. President Trump’s ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “on the heels of Charlottesville . . . is [a] signal to champions of hate and bigotry that their voices matter most.” It is cause to end President Trump’s voter fraud commission. Defund the Jefferson Memorial. Ban open carry of firearms. Attack free speech. Redouble Linda Sarsour’s Women’s March activism. Rename New York’s Trump Park.
One of my wittier friends told me today “I’m starting a movement to ban Dixie cups.” If I’d have been less startled by his gallows humor I’d have replied – “Just wait a week. They’ll probably drop the ‘Dixie’ name themselves.”
