1CEninja

Well I'm still REGULARLY hearing the term "assault weapon". Any time anyone says that term, I automatically assume they know nothing about guns and therefore shouldn't be suggesting policy for them.


Vivalas

I still love that "assault weapon" only covers scary looking guns, and has no connections to the gun's function. Like, the AR-15 falls under it but not the Mini 14.


1CEninja

The literal definition of assault weapon is "guns that make me feel uncomfortable". That is LITERALLY their definition.


WSB_Slingblade

I mean their definition of ‘assault’ is pretty much ‘makes me feel uncomfortable’


1CEninja

Which is honestly ridiculous. Originally the definition of assault was hitting someone once, and batter was hitting someone repeatedly. Because, you know, the word "assault" means attack and the word battery means "in series". But here we are.

doktor-sausage

He adopted the folksy idiot persona after he got blasted in his first race in Texas for being an Ivy League northeaster carpetbagger, so yeah, at least during the first term he was faking it. I think he legit got in over his head and kinda just became the face of his cabinet/handlers a la Biden during his second term though.


Revydown

A person that I follow likes to occasionally bring up Busherisms that people made fun of him when he pretended to be an idiot. Biden just has a stutter that apparently has always existed. Even when it didn't in his old speeches. God I fucking hate the media.

sevenhrs

I mean he is not a leftist by the standards of people online, meaning a socialist. But I would say he is around the center and left leaning by real world standards.


Quotes_League

> people online if by "people online" you mean American dominant social media sites, then yes


Marcel___

~~real world~~ american


sevenhrs

I am not an American. Left wing means more than just socialism. Social democracy and social liberalism is still part of the left. Biden is pro Immigration, pro LGBT, expanding social security, more taxes on the rich, green energy. And overall very progressive policies. What is it about him that you would say is "right wing" It feels like people on the left wants to push everything to the right where everything shy of the far left (Marxism) becomes right wing.


zeclem_

problem with it is he barely does anything that actually supports those ideas. he often goes against them, in fact. and if you look at his history as a politician, you will see that he massively increased policing and kept shilling for the companies that use his state as a tax haven.


KanyeDefenseForce

Lmao this comment chain is making me realize even more how r!tarded Biden’s strategy is. Paying lip service to leftists gets the right wingers pissed off, and then not following through cause you don’t actually want to do it gets the leftists pissed off too. Based and alienate as many voters as possible pilled.


Fly__Eagles__Fly

Biden is doing exactly what he said he would do


copiondor

I mean, he’s working really hard on trying to get everyone to go electric with their vehicles. Gas has doubled here since he entered office.


sevenhrs

That is possible, I don't know a lot about Biden's past. But he is a politician after all so it wouldn't surprise me if he lies a lot. One thing to keep in mind though is that even if he has a lot of policies he wants to push through it is not always going to be achievable as he will have to fight against a lot of conservative elements in the US system to do it. Some of him walking back on things could just be that it is not feasible to do. That doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't want to. Similar to Trump and his border wall.


zeclem_

its true that him being president isnt enough to push his policies, but his administration actually did stuff that went against the values he claimed to represent. [here is him blocking a student debt from getting canceled.](https://www.businessinsider.com/student-loan-debt-forgiveness-bankruptcy-biden-education-overturn-epileptic-man-2022-2) [here is kamala telling immigrants to not come.](https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-57387350) [here is him saying that he would veto medicare for all.](https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/10/biden-says-he-wouldd-veto-medicare-for-all-as-coronavirus-focuses-attention-on-health.html) so he isnt really much of a leftist even by american standards. he says leftist points, but then he does shit like this. he is really just there to protect the status quo and not much else. and thats ignoring his history.


GrilledDickCheese42

It’s similar to Trump talking like a populist but governing like most modern Republicans, with a few policy exceptions. Biden talks big... but he’s just a vapid corporatist like the rest. He definitely won’t expand Social Security, He’s hiking Medicare prices and the profits are going right to private insurers. As you mention, being on the left isn’t JUST about economics... but he’s not really on the left on anything except social issues, which is why so many people say he’s more right-wing.


CopenhagenOriginal

One can see the same attempts to be made from people on the right, as well. Just saw someone on here say a few days ago that anything to the left of Ben Shapiro is “leftist”


SufficientType1794

Anything to the left of Ludwig Von Mises is leftist.


sevenhrs

Yeah, they exist too. I would say that unironically believing that is kinda silly. But I have had discussions like that before, there are people who think Left = big government, right = small government. Therefore any authoritarian is a leftist. Including fascism and even monarchies. I do ofc also think that is a whole other level of silly than this discussion though lmao.


whimsicallurker

Biden, on the world stage, is economically center but far left culturally. In the US, he is left-center on both.


Educational-Bet2098

The difference is America is more left wing socially and right wing economically the difference is economics is the only thing that actually matters for every day people and effects their lives. So economics wise he’s right wing and pro status que socially


sevenhrs

I agree that America as a country is more socially left and economically right currently, but that doesn't mean that politicians are automatically right wing, especially if they are trying to bring reform. Which is why I am asking then what economic policies does Joe Biden hold that qualifies him to be center-right rather than center-left? Afaik he is in favor of strengthening social security, put higher taxes on the rich. Pro minimum wage, want to invest a lot into green energy infrastructure, canceling student loans, expanding public education, expand healthcare. Even though he is not a revolutionary that can bring about swift and effective change I still think he falls more towards the center left side.


KanyeT

He might be economically right-wing (as most people are), but he is culturally very left-wing. People rarely mean economics when it comes to political labelling.


abundanceofb

Nah even in Australia we consider him pretty centre-right


InvertedReflexes

I get that this is your political narrative, and with what the other guy said you're on the right track, but neoliberalism as a political ideology is authright. Him being center would make sense to a lot of folks though, he's not social-democratic or something.


ThisHatRightHere

By real world standards you mean American standards. He’s far from true left


sevenhrs

Right, but what do you mean when you say "true left"? Do you mean the actual far left? Like socialism, communism. Marxism in general? The left is a little bit more than just those, you also have social democracy and social liberalism as examples. I am also not American myself. I can absolutely see arguments for him being a centrist, but he certainly does flirt with the left in his rhetoric and campaign promises. (social liberalism not Marxism)


ThisHatRightHere

By true left I mean anything actually resembling a leftist. Maybe some of his talking points lean left but nothing he’s done comes close to anything resembling the goals of left-leaning people in America.

It's really not that wordy compared to other political righters of his time .

It’s not, but I personally grew tired of it due to the short nature of the work. Like Marx could write but certain times I just skipped sentences because there was so much extra bs. Not to say that isn’t common of the time, but


InvertedReflexes

Neoliberalism is both authright and historically (looking at Reagan) against an armed populace.


Uncivil__Rest

It’s completely in line with Marx. Marx wanted his own people armed. Only then. Never mentions a broader right for arms, just to arm his political side. Biden is clearly attempting to target his political enemies with regulations to hurt them. Very Marxist of him.


Blarg_III

>It’s completely in line with Marx. Marx wanted his own people armed. Only then. Never mentions a broader right for arms, just to arm his political side. What part of "Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary" is hard to understand?

Frostlord3

If we’re being strict in our definitions then all American politicians are AuthCenter since they tend to blend the most popular bits of both ideologies, but if we’re using the social definitions then Biden and Dems are AuthLeft and Trump and Republicans are AuthRight. You can’t claim Republicans are AuthRight when they’re pushing for more government spending on their pet projects and social programs

Republicans or MAGA. I refuse to associate MAGA with Republicans.

septiclizardkid

I disagree with Republicans, I hate MAGA. I know people who are Republicans, not a single MAGA supporters. Even If they'd agreed with some of Trumps policies, all In all he was just a crooked politician posing as some physical metaphor for the "American Dream", which has been dead for decades. "Everyone In the government Is bad except me and like 3 other people" says man with extremely corrupt ties


[deleted]

For me it's the opposite lol, I hate the Republicans (in ideology not the people themselves, unless we're referring to the politicians ofc) and the Democrats, and disagree with Trump associating conservatives I do believe more of the Government is corrupt to the teeth than not, not to say Trump isn't, I'm still unsure of him and Elon Musk, the rest of the "ruling" class I've ruled out though for the most part as beyond crooked To each his own belief however and to each belief it's own value, great talking with you


MakeshiftAltars

Holy fuck THANK YOU libleft!


UnadamantlySmall

I can \*maybe\* see MAGAs crossing lines to vote for Libertarians (the party), but I'm struggling to see them vote Democrats or Greens


ArtanistheMantis

The whole MAGA group is built on populism more than concrete beliefs. Once Trump eventually fades from popular conscience I think all bets are off for where the next populist wave comes from.


Freedom-of-speechist

It’s true that Biden is AuthCenter however Trump isn’t AuthRight but Right.


Outofmany

In order to be auth-right, you also have to submit to a higher authority than yourself. Not say Trump doesn’t, but if he does, it’s not immediately obvious. I’d argue that he belongs in a more yellow category.

Yeah, that’s generally how it works.

Anyone claiming Biden is right wing is just far left and thinks the Overton window starts where they are

ArtanistheMantis

Better switch your flair to Authleft commie


DesertParty

Lmao. It was how I liked to convince my liberal people to just not vote. There’s a case for it considering his imprisoning people record and hatred of weed


DankCrusaderMemer

I think Biden is left wing in an American sense. But on a global scale, or even considering all ideology, he’s pretty economically right from my perspective. A European Liberal or social democrat would be more to the center.


YouWantSMORE

"Global scale" I think you mean European scale since basically every Latin/South American, African, and some Asian countries are more right-wing than the US


sevenhrs

I mean it is possible. If you are an actual Marxist then yeah technically you are far-left. Or if you are a social-democrat then you are also to the left of him. Biden is a social-liberal which does put him center / Center-left. There is more to the left wing than just socialism. ofc by online standards he is pretty far from being a leftist.


silveryspoons

If Biden is auth, then a basic person with auth opinions is like... I can't compare them to Hitler because even Hitler does not score that auth on tests. I don't think people realize how hard it is to be auth. I want to ban literally everything and I'm only about 2/3 the way up the compass.

ReturnoftheSnek

TheSpacePopinjay

He fulfills *some* of the criteria of being auth right, mainly the ones the left focuses on when categorizing the political leanings of US presidents, namely economics and foreign policy, especially economic foreign policy, while not fulfilling the criteria US conservatives focus on, namely domestic social policy.


dupe_shway

nothing small about it, thats clearly where his politics reside

Joe Biden likes ice cream and told Yahoo News’ Katie Couric about his secret vice presidential eating habits: "We were all at a Secret Service Christmas party with all of the staffers," Biden said. "Everybody was out, everybody was minglein’, and we were all at the bar. You gotta love a bar at the Secret Service Christmas party. And somebody handed me a dish of ice cream, and I haven’t had ice cream since I was in the first grade. I’m pretty wild about ice cream." According to Yahoo, Biden’s reported daily ice cream intake — which does not sound as impressive as other vice presidents’ habits, including Calvin Coolidge’s “curiosity garden” — is 20 servings. "Look, I’m not comparing myself to the dude in the crazy outfit. I’m a retired ex-Marine," Biden said. "But, look, I ate three scoops, that’s not gonna kill me." Addressing a political ad that asks him if he wants to "eat a tub of ice cream," the VP revealed, "It has nothing to do with not wanting to do anything good for the country.

Luklear

I’d say progressive centre centre.


HookersAreTrueLove

What has he done that is remotely libertarian, that would drop him from auth to center? His solution to everything is for the Federal Government to be the solution, which is, for the most part, the definition of auth.


KarmasAB123

He is, tho.


PriestMarmor

I'd say he his between authcenter and authright. It is easy to forget how right-wing america is so a small deviation to the left is still right. Then there's biden's actions and biden's promises. He promised to end student loan debts (which is bullshit, own your responsibility) and he promised a lot of more left leaning stuff he never delivered so he is definitely auth-right/center

Biden is an example of an auth right trying to pander to left wing voters with surface level social issues. Democrats and Republicans are extremely similar and the only thing that differentiates them are these surface level social issues. Which is why no good change ever happens in this country. 😔


PabloZabaletaIsBald

Ricky911_

Biden is definitely Auth Right. He just isn't a good president. The most important thing in a leader is never their politics. It's their competence. Both right wing and left wing policies can work. Even as someone who's economically hard-core right, I still wouldn't mind left-wing policies if they were actually handled correctly. Personally, I really like Bernie Sanders because, while I don't agree with his policies, the way he would lead the country is ultimately good imo. You can see it in the way he talks. He's got a plan for the country and he wants to help the American populace. My favourite candidate is still Andrew Yang as he seems to be the best choice for us Libertarians, considering the actual Libertarian Party is a literal mess. The Biden administration is also a mess and that's why so few of his policies actually work. Someone who doesn't wanna legalise marijuana, supports Israel and doesn't support universal healthcare is always gonna be Auth Right
