For those following the story, a lot of people are outraged over a recent ruling in the UK about it being OK to fire someone for talking about biological sexes. JK Rowling basically came out and in a tweet "identify however you want and live however you want, but this is some shit" and now the Left is eating its own. The European laws that infringe on free speech are terrifying because that's where a lot of far Leftists want to take the United States.

Philippines announces plan to back out of US military defense alliance after 2 decades

After Philippines scraps US defence pact, Rodrigo Duterte eyes Russian arms

I'm OK with keeping our money, and letting Russia further drain their struggling economy. It's on the other side of the world, and Duterte is a dirt bag. It should be a Euro situation anyway, if anyone's.

I agree, less of our money is a good thing.

Biden demands our allies unconditionally surrender to appease ‘Death to America’ caucus within the left.

The grown ups get ignored again. Bombs in Iran as Israel ignores the administration that undermines them.American influence is at a low.

Just saw this. WTF is wrong with today's youth? I get you can be pro-Palestine, but how are you cheering on the terrorists that started the conflict? I'm lost for words.
You can't really be all that surprised. I mean, this is the same generation that thinks Biden is smart, communism is better than capitalism, men can get pregnant, women have penises, anyone who disagrees with them is raping them and being violent, freedom of speech only applies if you speak what they want to hear, and all racism is bad unless it's against Jews. And you're surprised they think a terrorist state is peaceful and cheering them on? Consider who we're talking about here, my friend.

The Jewish hatred in the left is so widespread and they won’t acknowledge it. I don’t see how any Jew could feel comfortable in that party.

This is what is so surprising. Where did they develop this racism? I never heard my parents talk about Jews. Heck, I didn't know what was a Jewish name and what wasn't until I was about 20.

Article makes some good points. If journalists throw everything in the "far right" category it trivializes the term, and at some point if everything right is "far right" then nothing is far right. It's not much different than people in politics equating everything to Nazis. I mentioned this just recently, but it's gotten to be way overused in the last several years to a point it's almost lost all meaning. The comparison rarely makes a lot of sense anyway. People inevitably try to compare either of our political parties to a German group that committed genocide against an entire religious group and attempted to conqueror the world by force. It's hard to take anyone seriously that makes such a comparison.

Well stated.
