    Not so long ago it seemed that the 'left' were the good guys with the most humanely rational take on things while the 'right' were conservative science/ logic denying religious nutcases. While these dichotomies are false as reality doesn't take sides etc, it seems like the left's loudest voices have been taken over by emotionally immature imbeciles.

    Anyway as the year draws to a close, let's celebrate the instances of when the left ' jumped the shark' and what was the defining moment.

    Is the right not still the science and logic denying nutcases?

    Pretty sure education is something the right has been railing against thia year.

    Yes a lot right wingers probably are, but recently perceptions are changing and there are more right wing minded people embracing logic and have sense of humour, win the meme wars etc

    Just 10-12 years ago high-level Dems would say they believe marriage is between a man and woman only, but that they support civil unions. Nowadays if a Dem said that, he could kiss his future aspirations goodbye.

    American Liberalism has been a bubble that's been building since the Iraq War. I think it definitely popped in 2016 and it's had to be one of the greatest things I've ever witnessed.

    The right just elected a complete piece of shit who is totally unfit for office but it's the left who has gone off the rails?

    Get fucked, you guys trumped the shark.

    Ps the Republican party, Trump in particular are children. Trump has the emotional development (and vocabulary) of a 4th grader.

    Don't bother, most of the right are ignorant pieces of trash who think Fox news educates them. They actively participate in becoming more ignorant.

    The department of education is about to get gutted by a crazed, fundamentalist, billionaire who brought her way into office; they give no shits about education because it disproves thier talking points.

    Please, let's not waste our times with trivial shit like the right denying the science behind climate change.

    The left has jumped the shark because Anita Sarkeesian made videos analyzing sexist video game characters.

    Talking of education- safe spaces, trigger warnings, gender studies complete with pronoun police at the same time the complete contempt for the plight common working man and relative silence on the power of global capital at the expense of sovereign governments etc

    Right, those are all great reason to oppose education. Students being oversensitive is wway worse than an uneducated population.

    The left denies basic biology. You guys are the science and logic denying nutcases. And you jumped the shark this year with all the gender absurdity.

    Being right wing doesn't mean you oppose science or education. Being extremely religious might.

    Right wing policy is predicated on supply side economics, which in and of itself opposes both empirical evidence and economic theroy.

    Climate change denial opposes science.

    Etc etc.

    They jumped it around 2014. 2016 was just the year that people could finally do something about it.
