It's not long ago NY had a republican governor and a republican mayor of NYC. It was the mid 90's and it laid the ground for NYC to become livable again and libtard hipsters from the mid-west and south weren't ascared to move here. Now they've taken over. Should have let the crack wars rage and the homeless free to roam.

What do you mean by globalist? Something like this: http://www.globalistagenda.org

 

I also recently heard "globalist" is an anti-semitic slur (a former KKK member was interviewed). Are you referring to Jewish people?

Yeah, that's what it is. Someone else tell you that or did you come to that conclusion yourself? And also, if you're a nationalist, you're also racist. I'm 2 for 2.

Nationalism/populism has been around long before the made up boogeyman by libs alt-right was invented. Have you ever heard of Daniel Webster? Perhaps Teddy Roosevelt? And globalists are Wall Street, Bankers and Corporations. I remember it wasn't long ago left wingers were interested in keeping them in check. Then the Clintons and Obama sold out to them so now their minions actually protect them by calling anyone critical of them anti-semites. Huh? Neat trick. What you people don't get is that Trump and nationalism is the revolution. I think the left is just jealous that they're the mainstream now, being used by the man. Ha ha.

That's just not true. For most of its history the USA has been in a nationalist mindset, like during ww2. Are you claiming it was toxic then? Keeping the union together was nationalist, hell that was the ultimate in nationalism. Was that toxic? It only resulted in the abolishment of slavery after all. There's nothing wrong with putting your country first. Especially when you're the best the earth has to offer. And we are. For now anyway. But the leftists are here to ruin it, just like they do everywhere else.

I also recently heard "globalist" is an anti-semitic slur (a former KKK member was interviewed). Are you referring to Jewish people?

Well, I'll start with with the second part of the question first, since it's easier: No. Just because Soros is the biggest financier and he happens to be Jewish, that's just a coincidence, globalists come all stripes as do Jew. And Soros operates in the sunlight and will be happy to tell you the dozens of places where his money goes as will others, he's not secretly funding anything so it's not like a conspiracy and it's not like it's organized or Jewish.

 

Generally, I like and respect Jewish people. They do more good in the world than bad. You won't ever see me complaining about them as a group, just individuals for better or worse

 

----

But getting back to what I mean when I say 'globalist': transnational corporations, the corporate media, international government like the UN and the EU, leaders like Hilllary, Merkel, Macron, Trudeau, a large part of the educational establishment in universities.... and again I'm not talking about a conspiracy or a cabal... just a preference overall for multilateralism and multiculturalism over the interest of nation states and a disregard for the local and national with a preference for the international.

 

And the way this plays out is a disregard for cultural or border or economic security of people in their communities and nations and a thinking on international levels. So you get mass immigration, factories moving overseas, "diversity is our strength", censorship of thoughts, attacks on/hostility towards the traditional culture of places and such...

 

Anyway they overreached. There's been an international backlash against them over the last few years as populist movements in different countries gain momentum at their expense. In the US that manifests as Trump voters on the right and Bernie/Beto fans on the left. Anyway, I'm hoping to see that trend continues.

It was a good response and an accurate analysis—there’s no possible way for her to prove she’s worthy of her stature to a group of people who aren’t arguing in good faith. But it was disappointing to see Ocasio-Cortez capitulate to Scarry’s insulting and flawed line of reasoning. 

 

It is clear that leftists continue to not get how they are hypocrits, and even double down on it.

 

It is this kind of response that ensures we get more of Trump.

 

If your all about virtue Signaling, and do not "get it" when someone takes joy in pointing out your lack of integrity, then continue the same line of thought more emphatically, you are just going to push more of the middle over toward Trump.

 

Divisiveness is the new Democrat product.

As usual, you completely refuse to understand what is going on here and instead push forth false claims and gaslight those on the right.

 

No one is on tilt - the right just loves to point out the high level of stupidity and ignorance her (and her slobbering followers - including Slate) extol.  The lefty media just keeps giving her softballs and refuses to follow up on her ridiculous answers to real world problems.

She's has ZERO ANSWERS to real world problems.  Everything she spouts is far left, unicorn and fairies nonsense that makes ZERO sense.

 

THAT'S what you think is "policy"?  :lol:

 

Well, at least you still have the fact that she's not bad to look at.  But that's all you have.

does she understand that even with a 2 billion dollar tax break, Amazon pays more in taxes and salaries than just about any business in the world?

 

sorry but if I ran a town and Amazon came calling saying I will create 20k jobs over the next 5 years in your city, but I want to be taxed at the lowest corporate rate to do so, every single mayor in the US would be stupid not to say, sign me up

 

my city just broke ground on a 660,000 sqft Amazon campus (Beaumont, CA) and along with it, the city has approved the building of 5,000 more houses, my house has gone up in value, and we are now looking at adding a movie theatre and high end outdoor city walk type of mall.

Its got nothing to do with Amazon.  Its about winning votes.  Obviously, her camp believes there are votes to be won by attacking Amazon for not paying enough taxes.  The truth doesn't matter.
