    You shouldn't call anyone on the left fake news just because they disagree with you on stuff.  Also, we get it, the pink haired antifa member is not the smartest in the room.  However, what I noticed is the right generally roasts strawmans, like some crazy femenist, whereas people like Kyle Kullunski roast the actual right.  I think the right needs to ignore the femenists, and focus on the actual liberals like Kyle Kullunski an David Pakman.  Both of them support free speech.

    The atlantic is very fraudulent, because islamic terrorism is left wing
    It's neither. Ideology is not, contrary to popular belief, solely on a linear spectrum. Theocratic extremism is not a permutation of left or right ideology, but rather of the ideology of a particular faith.

    Right-wing extremism tends to be characterized by xenophobia, ultra-nationalism, capitalism/corporatism, revanchism, and/or hyper-individualism/exceptionalism (a la Nietzsche). Left-wing extremism tends to be characterized by hyper-egalitarianism, militant socialism/trade unionism, ultra-globalism, anti-nationalism/xenophobia, and/or ecoterrorism.

    Islamic terrorism does not fit into either of these categories very well. It doesn't fit any of the left-wing categories, and it doesn't fit even half of the right-wing ones. For instance, it may be xenophobic and revanchist, but it is not ultra-nationalist, corporatist, or hyper-individualist. So, it seems more akin to right-wing extremism than to left-wing extremism, but it strikes me as more appropriate to say that it is neither.

    While each terrorist movement will have its own goals (ISIS and al-Qaeda are very different ideologically), generally such movements tend to be pan-Islamic (to the extent that they embrace anyone from their religious sect [e.g. Sunni, Shia, Ibadi, etc.] irrespective of their nationality) and are thus not nationalist. They also tend to be resolutely anti-Western, irrespective of whether that Western state is socialist or capitalist. They are xenophobic towards non-Muslims, religious literalists and purists, and often revanchist (though their revanchism is more open to dispute).

    Because their philosophy is rooted in a faith, not left or right political thought, they should not be placed on a left or right spectrum. Catholicism, for instance, is not a left or right ideology, but something else entirely. That you would attempt to categorize it as left or right reveals your thinking to be caught up in the western populace's tendency to try to label all ideologies along that left-right spectrum, despite the fact that this effort is fallacious and futile.

    What I mean is that Islamic Terrorism can be traced to left wing refugee policies and their obsession of diversity, in a world where the Left has created a need for diversity, it has lead to the rise of Islamic Terrorism, obviously, some attacks like 9/11, isn't but things like that has lead to a fear of islamaphobic such as arresting certain muslims, and even shaming the victims when they speak out on this

    *Sees title, expects link in OP to be about a violent act or acts*

    *Opens link in OP, sees it is about a bunch of celeberties talking shit about a shithead*

    Wait a minute, this isn't about violent acts at all. I thought the stereotype was that left-wingers were the ones that said stupid shit like  "mean words = violence".

    I guess this is what happens when people choose to see the world in red and blue, er... *ahem* I meant to say black and white.
