It is without doubt that there exists an extremely authoritarian section of the US left ,particularly in academia, who are against freedom of speech and demand that people express themselves within very narrow confines of what they think is acceptable. Wether or not the right in the US is authoritarian (and I believe they are) is beside the point.
Bush is the president that has used executive powers the most in history.-Obama has actively sought (but apparently not used) executive powers to suspend the writ of Habeus Corpus
Dont understand the significance on this one.-Obama has sought to end the long standing ministierial exception which prevents government involvement in internal church, temple and mosque matters (Obama lost 9-0 at the US Supreme Court).
As he should. Work place rights should not be defined by religious dogma.-Obama has attempted to define "free" birth control from a specific source as a "right"- and then ordered churches to violate their own teaching by fullfilling this non existent "right".
And? One of the most corrupt Justices was put in place by Bush..-Obama appointed a justice to the US Supreme Court who claims that private ownership of weapons is not an individual right.
HAHAHA Bush actually did that..-Obama has attempted to merge the judicial and legislative branch into one via very broad use of executive orders.
Sorry but Obama may have done many things that piss of people like you, but Bush, your hero, has nothing on him when it comes to corruption, croynism and abuse of power. For **** sake, Bush used the Justice department as a political tool to target the Democratic opposition! He put in place a whole new department that has turned into an American version of the Gestapo basically. He kidnapped people world wide and tortured these people..
This thread belongs in basement. Two cops are killed and that is evidence of "the left" being authoritarian? This view is the definition of partisan hack
Not to mention defending racism homophobia etc as nothing more than conservative reaction to those who call them bigots
