While all the lines are not as clear cut as presented, given what actually happened in history, this should give people a good idea of why they shouldn’t feel guilty about poking a needle in the Left’s eye on this subject matter.

There’s the science fiction community as well.
At least the MSewerM had the good sense to create a private list, JournoList, to communicate. These… people obviously think Twitter is good enough.
A very interesting blog post about the Left, from inside the Left so to speak.
Given that the left prides itself on being the liberator of women, homosexuals, and on being “sex positive,” one of the weirder and most obvious aspects of left-wing hate is how often, and how virulently, it is expressed in terms that are misogynist, homophobic, and in the distinctive anti-sex voice of a sexually frustrated high-school misfit. Haters are aware enough of how uncool it would be to use a slur like “fag,” so they sprinkle their discourse with terms indicating anal rape like “butt hurt.” Leftists taunt right-wingers as “tea baggers.” The implication is that the target of their slur is either a woman or a gay man being orally penetrated by a man, and is, therefore, inferior, and despicable.
Misogynist speech has a long tradition on the left. In 1964, Stokely Carmichael said that the only position for women in the Civil Rights Movement was “prone.” Carmichael’s misogyny is all the more outrageous given the very real role of women like Rosa Parks, Viola Liuzzo, and Fannie Lou Hamer.
In 2012 atheist bloggers Jennifer McCreight and Natalie Reed exposed the degree to which misogyny dominates the New Atheist movement. McCreight quoted a prominent atheist’s reply to a woman critic. “I will make you a rape victim if you don’t fuck off… I think we should give the guy who raped you a medal. I hope you fucking drown in rape semen, you ugly, mean-spirited cow… Is that kind of like the way that rapists dick went in your pussy? Or did he use your asshole… I’m going to rape you with my fist.”
A high-profile example of leftist invective was delivered by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir in late 2013. Bashir said, on air and in a rehearsed performance, not as part of a moment’s loss of control, something so vile about Sarah Palin that I won’t repeat it here. Extreme as it is, Bashir’s comment is fairly representative of a good percentage of what I read on left-wing websites.
It’s strange that Akame Ga Kill is being shown in Japan right now. It’s like a prophecy about US state of affairs.
Aldnoah Zero also reminds me of certain factions in the US.

Some people must constantly wonder how these concepts even apply to the modern life of a Westerner.
Well, for me, yin is me doing this for several years while ignoring Hussein between 2008-2012.
Oh wait, that’s the funny wrong gif.
I answer questions and help people out. That’s yin.
And if I can’t do that, I find something to smash, break, and destroy or bite people’s heads off while online. That’s yang, applied strength and force to overcome the World Itself.
When things are unbalanced, go for the opposite. Then swirl it together, mix it, and you got something of an interesting drink concoction there.

Fitting isn’t it. That’s the product of a fan(atic) in the truest sense of the term.
Japanese version with English song translations.
Song translations don’t really work for me as I read and listen, unless I just translate the words from Japanese to English in my head (but that’s not reading the subtitles). So the first video truly is a work of hard, they re translated it and fitted the English words to the lyrics and melody, individually on a custom track.
To see the true genius, press play on both videos at once, so they synch together. Then adjust the volume sliders up and down, and see if you can detect which language you are hearing. Talk about some psych ops. If we had people as passionate and hard working as this working in the United States government, most problems would get dissolved.
