A lot of commenters are drawing a distinction between "liberal" and "left". Liberal/conservative differ on government size, and problem solving (seek new as opposed to applying old).
Left brings in intolerance, violence, censorship, and destruction of a wide range of existing structures--societal and physical.
@vandys I guess? Antifa seems more anarchist bent. KKK seem more Democratic party bent. They're extreme for sure just not sure they're on different ends of that left/right spectrum so much as a more 2D spectrum on the left.
@vandys Mind you.. I'm just spewing what I'm thinking--and I'm not a historian or a political scientist. It's just how I see it.
What the M5M wants to call "Liberal" is really Progressive/Socialist.
No actual Liberal would ever support trashing the 1st Amendment. That's why/how the Tim Pools of the world voted for Trump & now criticize the Media/Dems/Elitist hard...
"To be a liberal means to believe in human freedom. It means to believe in human beings. ...cherishes freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and freedom of action, limited by only one thing: the protection of the freedom of others". ~Dorothy Thompson, Political Guide: A Study of American Liberalism and Its Relationship to Modern Totalitarian States, 1938
