Why is it always leftist politicians who are being murdered and slaughtered.

For an example, Olof Palme, Anna Lindh, Utøya, Jo Cox, etc and so on.

The left needs to retaliate.

Er, plenty of centre right politicians have been assassinated. Look at the IRA for example.

I think the better question is "Are there any liberal assassins?"

Liberals are more likely to be mass murderers than assassins. That's a matter of purpose.

Only the center right wing liberals are as powerful as them, and not half as angry or activist. Thank god none of these parties have managed to do what Hitler did: actually also have a couple of good ideas like autobahn, volksvagn etc. The minute one of our current far right parties actually manages to think of a good idea that most of the population can get on board with, that country will fold. So far, they all seem too dumb for that, lets hope Trump isnt the first one.

It certainly has to do with anger.

We saw the same mistake in the way the liberal media focused as much on hillary's lies as trumps, in the name of liberal fairness which was completely misguided since he was lying at a far greater rate. You dont spend as much time on 12% lies as you do on 50% lies if youre going to give a fair picture. The whole election from primaries to finish was a clear display of the difference in levels of anger and rhetoric. Its concensus even among liberals that this international wave is driven by anger and frustration and fear. It would be naive to ignore that this will likely be reflected in their rhetoric.

I remember when Swedens version of the BBC shut down their commentary functions because it had been ovverridden with racism, death threats, rape threats, the normal public discourse of our era and statistics later showed that a huge amount came from a small amount of very active far right activists. This anger and high level of activism was very important in making this movement strong and still is.

"infinitely more powerful than liqor stores robbers and the black panthers"

Indeed, we have agreed on this since the beginning, I am just saying that it has to do with the resources whites/Trump have accumulated, not how angry they are. Your point is that an angry powerful groups actions carry bigger consequences, which is an obvious fact. With all that said, none of this has any relevance to how justified any anger we are talking about is, which is really where the disagreements start.

Any way you should be happy to know that the Swedish security apparatus views Islamic extremist as the nr 1 threat to society, it does not view far right movements as a threat to democracy.

And he BBC links, proves that extremists when they vote, vote for their side of the political spectrum? I mean could a far right group ever vote for a left wing president?

Again, its not a controversial argument that this is largely driven by anger, nor that this was reflected recently in the level of discourse during the gop and alt right election campaign which was decidedly less civil, more violent, contained more lies than the dem side, nor that when they analyze offensive posts as SVT they find a small number of very active right wing trolls behind a significant amount of all offensive posts, nor that the entire liberal world is currently very worried not about a Ghandi-hippy wave sweeping the world but a far right wave, etc etc etc, no , this is not all coincidence

Large scale violence was always initiated by dems at trump events. And even at their own events.

Just like you pretended you'd never heard the darwin to dawkins robot vessel stuff, you are perfectly aware that its a very commonplace argument, not in the slightest controversial, that a far right wave is rumbling over the west and is largely being drvien by a white group that is angered at what it perceives an elite class that has let them donw etc etc etc. Youve heard all that a million times, and you máy not accept it, but you know its a valid, uncontroversial argument.

Because he just wrote an award winning study, as you know, about the SweDems. He uses a stronger word than me in his book "The Swedish Hatred."

nimby = not in my back yard. People associate problem/nuances with something and in this case burn the problem down. The goal is different than wanting to wreck havoc on society and bring about a new order.

"white disaffection"

So disaffection could take more forms, an obvious one would be disappointment with, let's call it "the establishment". We can add that to our growing list of reasons and another one that doesn't sound sinister and meant to induce fear in our electorate, like say "angry white powerful men".

I have no idea how I am coming off to you, but I am not trying to catch you up. You are making claims that we can actually measure and they are not rocket science to measure. This is not a matter of opinion (it shouldn't be), either you are correct or you are not. I am interested in a complete picture and if you or anyone else can help me gain that, I am game.

So far we have a book, that presumably analysis data. I will be honest with you, I can't imagine reading an entire book, just so that we can have this discussion, it seems unreasonable. I did not ask you to read up on Industrial engineering so that we may have a discussion in the other thread, I tried to explain it to you, it was not a very difficult task because I have an expertise in that field and I had done it numerous times in my professional life as an educator in different circumstances, and some of them were of highly questionable intellectual capacity, which I do not think you are.

I am just slightly surprised that whenever we discuss something that you seem to think you are an expert in or have knowledge about, you lose your patience, insult my understanding, call me Hanif Bali (I have no idea the significance of this) and so and so forth. Again, it seems a bit unfair and childish.

Want to know a funny thing? About 5 minutes after I posted my Foucault thread, I knew I had committed a mistake, I knew you would take it personally. So much so that my response when you finally even acknowledge my OP was actually authored in my head the night before I posted it.

This is from your first link and not some minor detail in his analysis.

---
Här finns också ett problem med källor. De flesta är anonyma, och de tillmäts stor betydelse oavsett om deras påståenden går att belägga eller ej. En nyckelkälla, Daniel Assai, som varit tjänsteman på Sverigedemokraternas kansli, framträder å andra sidan med namn. Han är en fantastisk källa som avslöjar spelet bakom kulisserna under exempelvis järnrörsskandalen. Frågan är bara om han är en för fantastisk källa.

Flera journalister, som hör till de främsta granskarna av SD, säger till mig att de skulle akta sig för att förlita sig alltför tungt på Assais utsagor. Gellert Tamas tycks inte dela deras försiktiga hållning, istället friskriver han sig ansvar i efterordet, där han hävdar att han med boken vill ”ge läsaren en möjlighet att – utifrån en kritisk läsning – själv dra sina slutsatser”. Det är inte befriande ödmjukhet, utan ett fegt sätt att inte stå upp för den bild han just ägnat 500 sidor åt att måla upp.

Genom att fokusera så starkt på Ekeroth och Sverigedemokraternas ledning – tämligen extrema typer – underlåter Tamas också att genomlysa det samhällsklimat som format en grupp så stor som 20 procent av befolkningen, som är måttligt intresserad av politik men som kan tänka sig att rösta på Sverigedemokraterna. Hur främlingsfientligheten fått så starkt fäste i vårt land är en viktig berättelse om samhällsutvecklingen under de snart 25 år som gått sedan John Ausonius framfart. Den återstår fortfarande att berätta.

Yes, Svd, probably the paper that agrees with your political views does think its a very good study but agrees with you. DN, f.ex., does not. But now I think Ive wasted enough time on establishing what Im sure you knew all along: this is a well known standpoint within serious literature on the matter, and this respected study uses much more extrme language than I do about the phenomenon.

* Yes, Svd, probably the paper that agrees with your political views the most (maybe GP)

"probably the paper that agrees with your political views"

This is really not about trying to fit me into a folder WTB.

So we have a book that analysis the rise of SD (specifically Ekeroth and Åkesson) to power, and draws conclusions based on weak and questionable sources. And does not provide any answers as to why people actually voted for them. This is the conclusion of an otherwise positive review. So perhaps the book does have a point, white anger plays a role. I don't deny that, but most likely it is not of the importance you or the author thinks it is. I remain open and skeptical.
