And it's been my experience that those who accuse others of being overly simplistic and biased in views, generally are themselves. Especially after having made broad generalizations based on an obviously biased view of a group that runs a vast range of ideals and social issues. Fearmongering and media pandering aside, there is really no more rationality on the right than there is on the left. It's just that the lack of critical thinking and mania is better hidden behind the veneer of "god and country" rhetoric. Conservativism is well and good- until it becomes a rallying cry for instilling fear of "evil socialist bullies out to get us" and the mentality of ostracism and persecution that goes with it. Pretty sure the McCarthy era is proof enough of that. We've already (in theory, at least) learned the lesson of over-zealous reactionary retaliation against "socialist conspiracy". Haven't we??

How so?

With that point of view in mind, one wonders which kind of liberal/"SJW" can be considered more dangerous: a populist corporate shill statist like Hilary, or a more genuine (if that's possible) socialist like Bernie Saunders?

SJW are the more radical types, though. I wouldn't say your average socialist or your average person who falls into what we call the left-wing spectrum of politics falls into the SJW category.

Multiculturalism doesn't work because people of different cultures are not in hurry to integrate in the society they are living in. And the worst part - most of them don't respect culture of the country they are in.
Of course, in different countries situation might be slightly different, but it's obvious that people of different cultures do not want to assimilate and become proper citizens.

Intersectionality is even worse: lefties eat each other, because, different groups not only pursue their own interests, but they are directly throwing other groups into the trash, whenever there is some sort of disagreement or misunderstanding.

And as for who is more dangerous: fanatics are much more dangerous. You can deal with shallow populist. Generally they won't do crazy stuff, whereas fanatic might ignore basic logic and facts to pursue their own vision of the future. And they are not someone you can make deals with.
So populists are more preferable.

So, do you consider Bernie to be a fanatic?

The american liberal left used to be the party of the intellectual. Now it has just as much science denial and stupidity as the religious right did 30 years ago.

I'd consider him an idiot.
He said bread lines would be good for people.
