Why Are Democrats Funding The Far Right?

quote [ Everybody knows the democrats and the republicans hate each other. All they ever talk about on Fox and CNN is how stupid and "authoritarian" the other side is. So...why are democrats funding some of the most far right candidates? ]

Don't mind me, I'm just pricing kevlar by the yard to try and bulletproof the walls of my van.

I'm not gonna watch a video, but I'm assuming it's to:

1) split support for candidates on the right, making it easier for Democrats to win elections,

2) push moderate right voters further left?

Although I'd argue in today's political climate, the potential for backfiring is pretty high these days. It's also scummy as shit.

I'm not gonna read a comment, but it's pretty fucked up that you would just bring up President Theodore Roosevelt's 1905 Lincoln Day Speech where he quoted some bishop saying that "race purity must be maintained." Okay, yes, maybe him regularly bringing up "race suicide" and chiding well off women for their voluntary sterility sounds like the modern day argument of "white genocide" that white supremacists trot out all the time. but you have to remember... that that's exactly what it is and America has always been a racist country... Ah. Hmm.

Oh! Oh, I see, you're saying that since America has always been a racist country, and that since its foreign and domestic policy has always been steeped in using scapegoats in order to further those policies much like the nazis did, we should be wary of a political party that offers the illusion of resistance without actually resisting anything. I got you. Also, thank you for reminding me that the Nazis found our Jim Crow laws admirable and that as the poem says, they went after Communists, Socialists, and Trade Unionists first in order to remove the political opponents to enacting their mass privatization which was then followed by using the Jews and other minority groups as scapegoats to focus the attention of their masses as their rich got richer and their poor died off in an ever growing military culture. Luckily, America has a strong Left in our many communists, socialists, and unionists, and doesn't have the sort of racist and religious bigotry that could allow our rich people to rob us all blind while enacting large scale, murderous military activities across the globe. You had me worried for a second.

It's just my brain, I have no patience for 16 minute videos that if written down would take me less than 5 minutes. I also apparently have no problem with running my mouth with zero context :P

I mean, 1905 was a bit far back to go, but it was on topic with the video.
