    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Turns out when you try and force your political point of view upon others through the use violence you are considered a violent extremist. I for one am shocked by this.

    If reality hasn't sunk in yet for anyone, it's not coming with facts, mountains of them or simple one liners.

    There being more violent extremists on the right doesn't mean there are no violent extremists on the left.

    Guess which group are going to be disproportionately targeted.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Will those change the dictionary definition of the words violent or extremist? Because if not an extremist using violence will still be a violent extremist lol.

    Potentially the ones on the left. Still doesn't mean they are not violent extremists, though.

    You're missing the point. Intentionally, I suspect. So not going to bother explaining this beyond what other people have pretty clearly said already.

    "oppose all forms of capitalism, corporate globalization, and governing institutions..."

    So if you actually read the definitions this is basically what the end game is gonna be for protecting wealth and property in the USA. Under this rubric anyone who questions the rapid extraction of wealth and resources by corporations could be considered an extremist

    Think you're being looted by robber barons? Well that's a heckin' extremism friendo, please return to your pod and adjust your thoughts to support one or the other bourgeois party in your Economic Zone and clap like a trained seal as your "governing institutions" protect extractive corporations.

    to qualify as a domestic violent extremist under that framework literately just requires posting "capitalism bad, the us government supports deathsquads abroad, maybe we should do something about that" on twitter.

    just so we're clear, you're entirely peachy with Leftists getting labelled "violent extremists" on the basis of their opinions, not their actions, just their stated opinions. while the same framework stipulates that the rules for the "other side" requies "taking overt steps" to qualify as "violent extremists" ?

    so a anarchist shitposting about anticapitalism on twitter is a "domestic violent extremist" while the nazi has to actually say, storm the capitol to qualify for the same.

    Actually, all the nazi has to do is post, "they can come for my guns over my dead body", or something similar, to qualify, under your retarded hyperbolic interpretation.
    meh

    Have you like, actually read the text? The part where it said "conduct or threaten activities that are dangerous to human life"?

    Or the part where it said "mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric... May not constitute violent extremism and may be constitutionally protected"

    Of course that is still open to abuse by conservatives in power but fucking stop sperging over the first unreflected thing that comes to mind and stop making the left seem like morons by trying to argue the side so incompetently.

    'may not constitute violent extremism' doesn't fill me with hope.

    So is everyone else. If you don't designate all actions that are violent and extremist as such, then what is the point? Is it ok to send death threats to Jeff Bezos just because he is a rich arsehole? Should you be allowed to burn down the house of a scientist just because he works with animal testing? Your political motives don't excuse your actions and if you are still going to commit to "the cause" then you should probably be prepared to be put on a list.

    No, I am very much not ok with that. Good thing that is not even close to what this is about. As was pointed out to you above, you are deliberately leaving out the violence part of the designation.
