Society/Culture Can we please stop equating the risk posed by left wing extremists with that of right wing extremists?

I've answered your question with far more nuance than your options available.
No no no Taylor, you're not allowed to use nuances. It has to be simple so a certain narrative can be followed.

keep it simple.

Woman chuck man at can = ok

Man retaliates and chucks can back = not ok

It's interesting how the conversation went from pegging a can at the back of someones head, to squeezing balls.

Theres a few degrees of separation there, regardless of hypotheticals.
Interesting how the thread went from left v right fringe lunatics to then a gender battle.

Democrats are right wing, just not as far right as republicans.

Also, voting in US is not compulsory. Not all African Americans vote, so your numbers are wrong.
What criteria are you using to determine if a party is left or right leaning ?

Those stats are based on people who voted at the last presidential election.

Not all of them vote. For example, if only 50% of African Americans voted, then the 80% of those that did vote democrat, would only be 40% of African Americans.

So, most of the murderers, could be people that didn't vote at all.

Not claiming that all African Americans voted. However those stats I provided are a analysis of the people who voted at the last presidential election NOT a analysis of the general population.

While we don't have specific data on how criminals vote we do know that serious crime including homicide is more prevalent in low socio-economic areas, ethnic communities and in the inner city suburbs. These are all demographics that strongly lean Democrat.

If you survey 100 murderers and 99 of them say they are innocent are you really surveying 100 murderers?

Point is, if they don't vote, they aren't politically engaged. Those people aren't leaning either way. They don't appear in your data.

Yet you are applying a democrat brush to them for some weird reason. Exclude the people that don't vote and the % changes by a significant amount.

What has Trump and the Republicans done for working-class people lately?

Cut unemployment? It was going down before Trump took office.

Keep jobs in America? He still outsourced many of them.

Tariffs on China? Did fu** all.

End the wars? The bombings continued.

Tax cuts? The wealthy received the hugest chunk of those.

What am I missing here?
