Oh, look, I’m actually first.
Spanish Atheist.
If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.

Developed a bit more that might make some sense as a take since the war and it bringing more and more "undesirables" under the regime's remit was a major factor (along with the chaotic and competitive regime structure) in the radicalisation and shift towards assembly-line murder, but it honestly sounds like she just did one of those big stupids where you talk without knowing what you're talking about, realise you're digging a hole and then just keep talking.

I seem to remember the Nazis mass murdering a bunch of undesirables before the war kicked off, so that’s still not really a good point.

Perhaps, but so did a bunch of other authoritarian regimes. It's the sheer scale of their deliberate mass murder that distinguishes the hitlerists as one of history's great villains and is why they cast such a long historical shadow. Regardless, it's not the point she was making, so she doesn't get any benefit of the doubt in terms of not being either a big dumb dumb or a bit of a shit.

He's a socialist centrist...so nothing at all actually.
political compass:

Economic Left/Right: -0.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.38

anti: fascism, communism, islamism, sexism, pan africanism, La raza, Warren Police Department (and most of the other police departments of metro Detroit except for Auburn Hills. They're aight), gun control, trump, obama, bush, clinton, reagan, carter, chipotle and snotty in crowd teens. Ugh I can't deal with them

Candace Owens will always be a black girl no matter how much she tries to be white. Tell her to go sit in the nincompoop corner with my ex girlfriend, Sammy Sosa, and everyone else who tries to hard to be white when they're not.

It's a shame really. She's fairly attractive but she's also fairly dumb so it cancels her appearance out in my eyes. I can't date a dumb woman, I find being a dickhead to be a major turnoff.

If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.

The leftists and the right wingers just have very different, economic, political, social and cultural views, it does not mean the right wingers are bad and evil and the leftists are good. It does not mean the leftists are bad and evil and the right wingers are good. We have very different ways of thinking.

I am a Proud Republican Cultist supporter of President Donald J Trump of the USA for Making America Great Again according to my Political views and those who agree with me and I wear it with Pride and Honor. Their is nothing wrong with it. President Ronald Reagan the original Make America Great Again President greatest American President and Gentleman, they don't make them like President Reagan anymore. First Lady Nancy Reagan greatest American First Lady. President Trump is no Gentleman. Am native Cuban American Hispanic Latino conservative nationalist Republican with slight economic Libertarian streak. Am worlds greatest Insomniac, I beat the worlds record every day, President Trump second greatest Insomniac with his 3 am tweets.

If we didn't believe some views and systems to be morally better than others we'd all be apolitical rather than wasting our time on political forums. While some systems may be better than others, it is true that many individuals on the "other side" of an issue may have good intentions and be the victims of bad ideology keeping their thought within a particular cage. Some people on either side are also just jerks or very bad at debating.

Entire sides aren't "evil", but neither are everyone's opinions worth exactly the same to the extent we can just go "just different" and leave it at that.
