Practice of making false or unfounded accusations of subversion and treason, especially when related to communism and socialism, and especially when done in a public and attention-grabbing manner is what exactly? Was it Patriotism or was it Fascism?

Characterized by heightened political repression and persecution of left-wing individuals, and a campaign spreading fear of alleged communist and socialist influence on American institutions and of espionage by Soviet agents. After the mid-1950s, McCarthyism began to decline, mainly due to Joseph McCarthy's gradual loss of public popularity and credibility after several of his accusations were found to be false, and sustained opposition from the U.S. Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Earl Warren on human rights grounds. The Warren Court made a series of rulings on civil and political rights that overturned several key laws and legislative directives, and helped bring an end to the Second Red Scare


So when Bush said:
"You are with us or against us"

What does that make Bush? other than a fackin weedhead.

Indoctrination means the lack of power to form your own beliefs and are always confident that what you have been told is the truth, even when faced with equally plausible but contradictory beliefs! :roll:


You're trying to entice me into one of our fondly remembered tiffs. Ahh, the good ole days. But I'm determined to resist :wink:

No, I was thinking more along the lines of somebody who can talk in La La Land about how various politicians and business men should be put against the wall and shot (yep - he owns that), because of their abuse of the starving millions in the UK and the next day's sycophantically supporting the deaths of thousands of Ukrainian civilians, coupled with the odd 10 million or so forced to flee from their homes. That sort of doublethink. :wink:

can you actually believe how fucked in the head some people can be?

This forum is just full of idealogues. They would support genocide if it just upsets the status quo which is very sad because life has little meaning to them. if Russia started gassing millions of Ukrainians in gas chambers, they will find a way to support it because it upsets the western status quo.

It's fascism at its worst.

Did you know that on this forum we have holocaust supporters? there are posts here lamenting how Hitler failed in his quest of the "final solution". I see parallels with Ukraine. Which just goes to show the mental decay of some people on this forum.

This means, and I have no doubt about it, that if Pootin starts gassing Ukrainians, by the millions, the same imbeciles will still support Russia.

So back to the subject matter, what do you call a person who cannot tell the difference between criticizing the party in government and the population?

Patriot or a Fascist?

Swine perhaps?

What do you callk a person living in the UK and calling the UK swineland?

It must be a very difficult life for you. You need to leave UK at once and move to Russia for your own mental health.

Leave UK in search of happiness. Russia is a perfect fit for you.
