Those on the Right seem to like equating Liberals with Communists/Socialists...

Liberals since 1960 have been communists (in the context of the Cold War).  In my parent's time anyone to the Left of J Edgar was considered a communist.  Which is why in spite of Vietnam, LBJ was considered by them, to be a communist .. not just starting with the campaign of McGovern.  My generation doesn't think that way, we have gone thru the Cold War and emerged out the other side.  The people of the 60s aren't liberals like the Founders (they were liberal in being republican, not democratic) ... they are liberals like Castro at best.  Socialist leaning toward 3rd World cultures.  Castro isn't comparable to Stalin or Mao.  The campus demonstrators of the 60s ... should have been all drafted to Vietnam ... according to my parents.  I am beginning to think they were right ;-(  Or is that just aging on my part?

Those on the Left seem to like equating Conservatives with Nazis/KKK ..

The sweeping generalizations are just awesome.

If you are ... one of those people ... and you know if you are or not ... then you need to have your citizenship revoked and your ass deported.  Doesn't matter if you were born here or not.  Now doesn't that sound swell?  Which side of the equation did you imagine that you were on, huh?

Yep.

And to the left, everyone who disagrees with them is -LITERALLY- a nazi.

If you identify with either wing, you've probably succumbed to trablistic thinking. And if you identify with either the democrat or republican party then you DEFINITELY have succumbed to tribalistic thinking.

Generally, when someone who identifies with one wing hears a criticism of their wing, even if the person doing the criticizing is also criticizing the other wing at the same time, they, like the reactionaries they are, go "BUT ____ WINGERS DO THIS."

When the right-wingers call you an SJW and the leftists call you a fascist, THAT's when you know you're in the sweet spot.

I'm "liberal" and I don't consider everyone else "nazis".  But that doesn't mean there aren't some...
