    I disagree with plenty of others ideas and do not support silencing them.

    Again your problem is that you seem to think your opinion is logically flawless and counts for more than that of others.

    What your problem is, too, that you still don't realize who these "morons" were that carried out the violence. It wasn't the Berkely students but anarchists known as Black Bloc.

    No doubt you will come up with some other "explanation" but I won't engage anymore. Quite ironic you were not just talking about narcissism, but then talking about what you were meaning about it.
    Well if you'd actually engaged with the point it wouldn't have been an explanation, it would have been a discussion. As it is you appear to be willing to support the silencing of other people's opinions but not to examine or flesh out your own.

    All I got from you is how I have problems and you need to keep explaining things. You accuse me of not engaging with what you see as "the point" and yet don't engage with what would "the point" of my argument.

    You're boring, that's why I cannot be bothered.

    I never said it was but if someone wants to try it should they be stopped? This is in line with my position on drugs and euthanasia which I think should be legal.
    At last we agree. Unfortunately the authoritarian right are intent on telling others what they can and can't do with their own body.

    The left always assault people then run away, they especially target women. They never fight like men. See how feminine acting and passive aggressive this guy is.

    They believe in extreme social leftism (cultural marxism) if not extreme economic socialism.

    I'm a communist myself and in no way can see those people fighting for anything useful other than penis+penis and "which toilet to use". There is a difference between a socialist revolution and that thing they're trying to achieve.

    Obviously, they don't believe in a full proletarian seizure of the means of production, they (mostly) support the maintenance of the capitalist system.

    However, the support drastic social reform and the abolition of equality of opportunity in favour of marxian equality of outcome, meaning that they believe everyone is the same despite obvious existing natural inequalities, like Down's syndrome for example.

    So then they aren't Marxists for gods sake.

    They are liberals. They support private property along side all their the pro gay/race rights etc

    Do you think people with downs syndrome do not deserve human rights?

    You're a disgrace, I hope you get caught by a Trumpite biker gang and get beat within an inch of your life or pepper sprayed and blinded.

    Oh wait, you're a leftist coward, you'll run away at any sign of danger and wear one of those pathetic puny masks to hide your face and eyes.

    Long may the left's continued defeat throughout the world continue.

    How do you interpret "people don't deserve rights" from "people clearly aren't all the same and some inequalities are natural"

    Leftism is a mental illness confirmed.

    So you're wishing that a poster on an internet forum is beaten to within an inch of his life because he disagrees with you?

    Again, what a sad, lonely, pathetic individual you are.

    "people clearly aren't all the same and some inequalities are natural"

    .
    I agree with this. I just don't think it should matter and I don't care if something is natural. Do you live in a tree? Do you live in a hunter gather group? Each according to his need and each according to his ability implies inequality in humanity.

    You didn't answer my questions. Should someone with downs syndrome have human rights? Should they have food? Should they have shelter? Should they have medical care? I believe in the equality of outcome of all these things. Do you?

    Someone with Downs Syndrome is locked out of a load of employment opportunities though no fault of their own. His/her need should be met and not denied. Some level of equality of outcome is needed and the USA utterly falls short.

    People have a right to protest. The problem with what happened there was not that people protested but rather that they used violence and didn't let him speak.

    But, again, the right of freedom of speech extends to my shaming and naming publically scum like Yiannopoulos. Period.

    He was going to name undocumented students or something like that. Those students did good in protecting those people.

    No they didn't do good. Even if he was going to name undocumented students, that is public record, it's not confidential. And even if it is confidential and naming undocumented students is illegal, there is a legal procedure - you bring in the police to deal with that. If for whatever injustice that occurred, citizens took the matters in their own hands, it would be chaos (pun intended).
