Thread: A look inside the mind of a leftist

  1. #1

    A look inside the mind of a leftist

    The purpose of this thread is not to mock or belittle anyone. Its my attempt to put some of the things we wrestle with into perspective from the lefts point of view.

    This morning im watching something called the impeachment show on viceland. Jane fonda is interviewed on the show. The whole clip is about 8 minutes long and its interesting.

    The part that inspired me to create this thread is at about the 5:30 mark where she talks about her strategy but honestly the whole thing is fascinating.

    A quick summary of the clip:

    It starts off showing what she does as an activist and she espouses the typical urgency about climate change. Cookie cutter stuff mostly. Until about the 5:30 mark where she talks about a plan to seduce Trumps ego into getting onboard with the changes she wants. Then she goes on to explain why impeaching him is so important.

    There is a devout sincerity to her that i dont think can be denied and something that many on the left have in common with her.

    Anyhow i hope you all enjoy it.

    Don't you just love being told to watch a youtube video to find out what you think?

    Zelensky: [. . .] We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.

    Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though [. . . ]

    Im actually wondering how many on the left agree or disagree with her. I found her perspective interesting and from my perspective enlightening

    If you want to understand people on the left I would suggest not cherry picking some celebrity. There are plenty of people on this forum you can talk to.

    The only people who care about Jane Fonda are rightists. She doesn't mean anything to anyone else but every now and then some conservative who loves how indignation feels drags her out, dusts her off and stands her up on the stage.
    Kinda like Hillary Clinton. Nobody gives a damn about her anymore either until some Trumpist needs something to compare his Dear Leader to in a favourable light.
    Better a sister in a whore-house than a brother in the Conservative Party.

    I will fix it for you. And yes, it is a known bug.
