Manners were PC. The only distinction is that many act as if there is only one form of PC, and that it is new. But the only thing that is new is the term used to refer to the social pressures inherent in modern communication. The phenomenon itself is neither new nor insidious.

The direct correlation between poverty and crime has been observed worldwide, and for a LONG time. The problem is that your quote is acting as if that link must be purely economic in nature, but why would it? Poverty is often linked with anxiety, desperation, and similar psychological stressors that, when coupled with severe economic lead, consistently lead large numbers of people to criminal acts. When one is sufficiently stressed and desperate, they are far more likely to commit crime, be it self oriented, such as drug use, financial, such as theft or robbery, or purely violent, such as gang crime and general assault.

Do you legitimately believe that liberals want to let in violent terrorists? I mean honestly, truly believe that?

More liberals are Christian than any other religious affiliation including atheist.

Again, stop ascribing malice just because someone has different opinions or beliefs.

They aren't evil, they just don't agree with you.

Wait, liberals support eugenics?

What are you talking about?

Around outlandish should be are not. Can't edit as someone voted on the comment.

Saying someone acts like an asshole is not ascribing intent. I don't know WHY they are acting like assholes, not do I claim to.

And no, if I'm being reasonable, my anecdotal evidence is not sufficient to make a generalized claim about millions of people.

Except it isn't actually those things. You keep defining many of these things as fundamentally related to communism and alinsky when they are far more reasonably attributed to more mundane things.

You sound exactly like the Democrats near me that attribute damn near every Republican action to fascism, ethno nationalism, etc.

It's so tiring to listen to people who are convinced that people who don't agree with them are evil. There isn't any room for legitimate debate.

Yeah, that's a criticism of vanguardism, which Marx explicitly critiqued, and which is incompatible with the utopian idea of a non violent pure democratic workers uprising.

All of the conservatives I interact with are complete assholes. Does that mean I would be justified in acting like they are repsentative?

Of course not, because anecdotal evidence is insufficient to make representative claims regarding large groups.

When you ascribe malicious intent to those you disagree with, it isn't surprising you manage to find reaffirming examples, since you are assuming malicious intent.
