So he is a national socialist then?
Or pseudo-socialist and veering straight towards fascist, much like the original national socialists. Racial purity is simply not an attribute of socialism, or of left-wing liberal beliefs.

The point I was making is that anyone who espouses that story that society needs to be completely torn apart and remade in some perfect image is engaging in the politics of totalitarianism, be it left wing or right wing.
Not necessarily. You might be an anarcho-primitivist for example, where your 'perfect image' of society is a de-centralized hunter-gatherer model.

It is. The religion of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity states that whiteness is a disease that must be purged.

Why do you think the SJW love their white-free safe spaces?

This is the big sticking point I have with the anarcho-X types. What do they do with the people who don't want to live in a decentralised model? Send them to jail or kill them? Great, you are a totalitarian state. Either you have to kill then when they are small, or you have to allow for them to become strong enough to beat you.
It is a colossal contradiction that these people esposse because they haven't bothered to read some Locke.

That's just you grouching about leftists again, nothing to do with reality.

I mean, i'm not saying anarcho-types are right. I'm far from anarchistic. It's just an example that disproves the strict correlation.

400 bi-partisan former federal prosecutors sign a statement saying Trump would be indicted for obstruction if he were not the President.

https://medium.com/@dojalumni/statement-by-former-federal-prosecutors-8ab7691c2aa1

We are former federal prosecutors. We served under both Republican and Democratic administrations at different levels of the federal system: as line attorneys, supervisors, special prosecutors, United States Attorneys, and senior officials at the Department of Justice. The offices in which we served were small, medium, and large; urban, suburban, and rural; and located in all parts of our country.
Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.

It's extremely obvious to anyone who has spent 5 minutes reading about the US justice system.

Refusing to hold rich and powerful people to account is a sickness in the US system, and long precedes Trump, but he is the latest beneficiary of it.

This completely, however the right wingers will choose to hear what they want and argue a straw man.

Modern socialism only seeks to take care of those left behind by an efficient capitalist market economy by prioritising them in spending of tax revenue. Nothing more.

Trump wants a 6 year term as reparation because 2 years were 'stollen'.

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/05/trump-term-mueller-1302643

Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.

And, he "stoll" the text of that tweet from one he retweeted by that insufferable evangelist, Jerry Falwell jr... including the poor spelling.

Steve Mnuchin refused to hand over Trump's tax returns, and has basically no justification for his refusal.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-tax-returns-mnuchin-rejects-democrats-demand-for-presidents-returns-citing-doj-guidance/

In reliance on the advice of the Department of Justice, I have determined that the committee's request lacks a legitimate legislative purpose, and pursuant to section 6103, the department is therefore not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information

Imagine the howls of outrage from Rebulicans should the situation be reversed, with a Democrat refusing to follow a very clear law.

26 USC 6103(f)(1)

Upon written request from the chairman of
the Committee on Ways and Means of the
House of Representatives, the chairman of the
Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the
chairman of the Joint Committee on Tax-
ation, the Secretary shall furnish such com-
mittee with any return or return information
specified in such request, except that any re-
turn or return information which can be asso-
ciated with, or otherwise identify, directly or
indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be fur-
nished to such committee only when sitting in
closed executive session unless such taxpayer
otherwise consents in writing to such disclo-
sure.

The justification for his refusal is right there in your quote, how did you miss it?

Go and read 26 USC 6103(f)(1) and tell us how Mnuchin has any basis in law to refuse.

He's just stonewalling, he will have to oblige eventually. Probably when he gets sued.
