@Region Philbis,
Yeah I get it.

There is nothing wrong with the political left burning down businesses and attacking police officers... They are fighting Nazis so whatever they are doing is OK.

The problem isn't with the people who criticize both sides.

The problem is with they people who only see one side. It's us versus them absolutism.

You are so sure that you have the absolute truth that you can't criticize your own side. That is extremism.

If people only see one side then, by definition, any other side is simply not observable. They don't believe themselves to be on a "side". You can't compromise with what you don't see.

If people see two (or more) sides to an issue they certainly aren't obligated to accept other sides as valid. The fact that people "choose sides" means that they have rejected alternatives.

Can you criticize people who attempt to find agreement with people on the other side of an issue? Aren't you one of those people and isn't that your "side", your "ideological narrative©"? If you can't criticize people who find points of agreement across the political divide aren't you yourself acting as a proponent of "absolute truth"?

Hightor,

Saying there is no absolute truth is itself an absolute truth.

Is that your point?

@hightor,
I am arguing against extremism. So yes, I have no problem stating my beliefs

US politics have split into left and right. Each side is getting more extreme, and each side seems more interested in destroying the other than they are in looking at facts or finding solutions.

I think this is a bad thing. That is my ideology.

No.

I'm just wondering why I never see you criticizing your own side, since you use that as a definition of extremism.

That's hardly anything "new", nor is it restricted to the USA.

When people look at things (like "facts") from opposite perspectives they're liable to remain in disagreement. Their solutions may be 180º different but they're still "solutions"..

Max is a progressive is he not?

I see him criticizing progressives all the time. Not as much as they should be criticized in my opinion, but he still criticizes them quite a bit.

No. That's why he criticizes self-styled "progressives" as extremists.

No. They are two different things.

You can be a progressive without being an extremist (as you can be an extremist without being a progressive).

Again, CRT is not taught in th K-12 grades. It is a conservative melee to get parents/white people all in an uproar about it.

Then to make matters worse, the buzzword "liberal extremism" is thrown around to combat the lies conservatives tell about it.

@neptuneblue,
If CRT is not being taught in the K-12 grades, then what's the problem with banning it?

Progressive nutcases do try to teach anti-white racism to children though.

The term "CRT" is a good way of referring to that sort of nonsense when opposing it.

@Lash,
Unfortunately, leftist lies about our heritage do exist, so we need to ban them.
