Is it common in your country to describe liberals "communist so we mustn't listen to em" by right side?

In Japan it's not a big phenomena, but It certainly exists. I'm really tired of this af.

Is it common? I'd say no. The media portrays it that way but not all liberals are that far left. That's mostly when different sides clash in protests. The vocal minorities will always cry the loudest but there's always a larger silent majority somewhere in the middle. Most people just avoid politics day to day.

Don't people understand their silence help the extreme people get more extreme? If so, that's the reason why American politics are often described"in danger".

If someone is screaming at you, it's not productive to scream back at them. The "danger" aspect is wildly overblown in the media. I don't watch news or TV really for that reason. People are going to do what they want regardless so it's better to let them make their own bed and lie in it. If you notice, this is really only an issue in cities and not in rural areas. Most people are agreeable and are just trying to make it day to day. People really like to blame others for their own shortcomings and I choose to just not engage with them.

In America you are a communist if your on the left and a fascist if your on the right. No one wins.

No they are not. Communism is an extream left ideology while fascism is extreme right. They are quite literally polar opposites

You are incorrect. The right believes in limited government and pro individuality. Communism is when you can elect your representatives but the government is in control of everything. Fascism is like communism but leaders are appointed, not elected and the government controlls everything.

You described democratic communism. Communism doesn't necessarily mean the leaders are chosen by the people. Look at stalin. Look at Cuba and China. Your definition of fascism is really a definition of a dictator. In communism the government controls what business' can and can't do. In fascism they have an open market with little to no government intervention. In both leaders may be appointed by other leaders or elected.

I agree with your point on communism. Just because they have elections it doesn't mean the result isn't driven by fear. Your thoughts on fascism are wrong. In the age of Google at least look up something before you start arguing a point. This is the defenition according to the Merriam Webster dictionary. Definition of fascism 1often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

I've definitely noticed that. At least in America a lot of conservatives seem to group progressivism, liberalism, socialism, and communism as essentially the same. Even though those groups have opposing beliefs. Like a many people mistakenly believe "liberalism" is closer to communism than libertarianism. Political terms have been heavily corrupted in the US from their original meaning.

No. Liberals accuse conservatives of being racists if they disagree on anything and encourage the public that Republicans are wrong and not to be listened to because they are "racist."
