    Sticky: Re: Discussion and Debate Community Thread

    We know that accusations of racism (just like racism itself) are often weaponized to serve partisan/in-group interests. From where I'm sitting, you're playing the same game as the anti-racist posers...
  5. Re: Nato alliance experiencing brain death, says Macron

    Vanoi, I'm strongly opposed to the militarization of Europe. I know that currently Germany, England and France have no real military capabilities beyond acting as minor partners alongside the United...

    That's why I specifically said western Europeans.
  7. Re: Nato alliance experiencing brain death, says Macron

    No European countries are being "chased into his [Putin's] fold". Virtually every country in Europe (other than Russia) is either in the European Union or aligned with it economically via the Single...
  8. Re: Nato alliance experiencing brain death, says Macron

    There was no 4D chess "ploy" by Macron: everyone knows that the French have had a difficult relationship with NATO and that Macron has been trying to sell the concept of a militarized Europe by...
  9. Poll: Re: Illegal immigration to the US deal a heavy blow.

    Treating unwitting, innocent participants in the entrapment scheme as collateral damage was unfair and counterproductive.

  11. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Read the study Ludicus. The researchers found that when white, independent voters were exposed to material which reminded them of the demographic decline of white America, they became more agreeable...
  12. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    The point you're raising has already been addressed. No one is claiming that the migration debate was framed exclusively by left wing radicals. The proposition is that they impacted the election by...
  13. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    There is no non-sequitur. You're name-dropping logical fallacies again. Post 1059 is a perfect example of you waving away evidence which you specifically asked for and then acting like because it...
  14. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Persistently demanding evidence and then ignoring/dismissing it when it's offered is not "critiquing" the hypothesis. Name-dropping logical fallacies is not "critiquing" the hypothesis. It's just...
  15. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    The evidence justifying that hypothesis has been repeatedly presented and explained.

    The studies showed that non-liberal whites were insecure about their dominant status and that, by being...
  16. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Incoherently pasting previously addressed comments isn't moving the conversation forward. It is also, so far as I can recall, against the rules of the forum.

    That said, you seem to be operating...
  17. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    The ones espoused by the 45% of consistently liberal people who have adopted peripheral/radical views on migratory policy. For clarity, it is also worth pointing out "that those at both the left and...
  18. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    As I already illustrated in this post, the PEW data shows that 45% of those who identified as consistently liberal (a growing demographic) supported "peripheral" views on migration.

  19. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    The data/analysis shows that it is a reasonable hypothesis: had fewer liberals adopted radical views on migration, it is perfectly possible that fewer conservatives/white people would have been...
  20. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    You're misconstruing opposition to radical views about migration as being an independent factor in determining voter choice. It is not. The theory is that the lurch toward more extreme views about...
  21. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    It is clear that an exposure to certain views/information affects status threat perceptions. In the Craig and Richeson research (which I cited in a previous post) one of their studies showed that...
  22. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Perceived status threats are directly affected by exposure to liberal/progressive attitudes and policies. This is shown unequivocally in the source material. That's why when an increasing number of...
  23. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    The evidence has been provided, both through the data, source material and explanations.

    The PEW research found that, although more consistent alignment with either ideological position (liberal...

    The long term statistical trends which played a significant role in Trump's candidacy (both in the GOP primaries and the general election) have already been established: there...
  25. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    It is factual to state that views among Democratic voters had been lurching significantly leftward long before Trump. This includes a remarkable liberalization in attitudes toward migration, which,...
  26. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    No one is claiming that liberals "made" anyone do anything; the argument being made is that Trump's election was a reaction - at least in part - to the growth of left wing radicalism.



    I don't...
  27. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    In a flagrant attempt to misrepresent my argument, you specifically cropped my comment to exclude the word "radicalism". Observing that left wing radicals have sought to encourage ethnocentrism among...
  28. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    My point has nothing to do with the validity of race realism as a scientific theory.
  29. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Liberal support for migrant societies and borderless polities has very little to do with Trump. Leftwing activists (who tend to take their cues from the Europeans) have, for a variety of reasons,...
  30. Re: Nato alliance experiencing brain death, says Macron

    It is beyond question that NATO dissuaded the Soviet Union from expanding - or attempting to expand - its sphere of influence over western Europe militarily. Arguing about a hypothetical past where...

    The issue of authoritarianism is not directly addressed by the left-right dichotomy, but it is assumed that the further to extremes you go the more authoritarianism there will be.

    This is the least complicated way of framing the l/r dichotomy as it is generally applied.

    My contention is that fascism is a form of right-wing socialism, not that the classification of the NSDAP as fascist is erroneous.
