How sensible people in Europe see our politics.

A guide for Europeans following American politics, translating common terms:
"Extreme left wing" = center left
"Left wing" = center right
"Moderate" = right wing
"Right wing" = extreme right
"Extreme right wing" = fascists
"Communist" = left wing
"Socialist" = anyone not a libertarian
"Libertarian" = asshole

From Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Retweeted Laurie Voss

Yup, I am still glad to be an asshole.


I guess that would make social democrats communists, which of course is not true.

I think for Western Europeans, a Social Democrat in the US would be considered a moderate there, or probably just a normal human being.


Nice to see there is no such thing as middle of the road moderate in the list. smile007.gif
