Online Politics Test says that I am a Lefty Pinko Scumbag, but that I'm Good in Bed 

I took this online Politics Test that I found at Rabbits, Toyen, and so forth, and found out that I am what is technically called a lefty pinko scumbag, which is kind of what I expected. I also found this chart during the test as well.

Before you get to excited about the chart above, there is some question as to the validity of the test itself. It is also interesting to note that the chart that they use on their main page of the test would indicate that the logical choice to emulate the position between Donald Trump and Martin Luther King is Adam Sandler.

Also on the chart, Darth Vader is equated with communism. I could have sworn that Vader is a member of the GOP. One of the questions really threw me for loop, "Books with potentially deadly knowledge (like instructions for making awesome bombs) should be regulated." OK, but what about books with instructions for making mediocre bombs?

Well, I just took the test, Dr. Z, and I'm rated as a Socialist (but hot in the sack).

Those are called "modern Hollywood film scripts".

Interesting point. Vader believes in "the Force" and "finds.....lack of faith disturbing", which definitely puts him in the theocratic wing of authoritarianism. And his scary-but-cool all-black outfit fairly screams "fascist".

Then again, it's interesting that the further you get out to the totalitarian extremes of the left and right, the less practical difference there is between them (as people who lived under both Nazism and Stalinist Communism know).

Tengrain: Clearly drugs like Viagra and Cialis are made for the fascists. No wonder the GOP is so far up the drug companies' sleeve!

Infidel753: LOL! The question still stands, should "Books with potentially harmful knowledge (like instructions for making 'modern Hollywood film scripts') be regulated."

Infidel753: I like your thoughts on Cheney and fascism. I think that the point that I was pointless trying to make was that these charts are foolish. I do not really feel that I am a socialist, and this test does not make one. Cheney is black does not make him Darth Vader either. It is a lazy way of categorization. Your thought about extremes is true, but we really did not need a chart to show us that. Stalin is not merely an authoritarian version of Gorbachev. the whole thing is a gross oversimplification. It is almost dangerous in that people will look at this crap and think it means something. It is the Astrology and Tarot cards of political science without the obvious warning label.

In the film "Dead Poets Society", Robin Williams played a teacher that had his students tear out a page of their text books because it described how to rate a poem using a graph to plot it's value. This graph is at least as stupid as that, in my opinion, and for far more concrete reasons.

Well, I guess that you are a Lefty Pinko Scumbag, like the rest of us. Welcome to the club, Kelly!
