A nonexistent political spectrum on the North American continent due to monstrous shifting to the right.
"Matt Stone and Trey Parker aren't right wing douchebags! They're centrists and lampoon the extremists on both sides!"

"In this country, assuming a centrist position makes you right wing. A true left wing extremist is something you've never seen, and wouldn't know if one snuck up and smacked you on the back of the skull with a picket sign."

May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

During the French Revolution, peasants and others not represented by the other estates sat in the left wing (in contrast to the nobility who sat in the right wing). To this day, the left wing continues to represent minorities and the common people.
The left-wing is fighting oppression of the lower classes.

Left wing is a very generic term to describe a political position relative to what is currently accepted as the general consensus. Contrary to popular belief left-wing extremist are as common and possible and extreme as right-wing extremists. If you are left thinking you generally aspire to state-control and inclusiveness regardless of others. If you are right thinking you generally aspire to freedom and responsibility with a few strict rules - life is what you make it and there is no welfare-state to rely on.
Left, center-left, center-right, right - all quite generic terms to describe a political standpoint. Lenin is an example of someone on the extreme left.

A system of thinking that advocates for the destruction or elimination of social hierarchies in pursuit of a more fair and just society. Schools of thought include Socialism, Communism, and Anarchism. Does not exist in many western countries.

The left typically expresses opposition to practices which produce inequality and hierarchies such as states and private (not personal) property. It is also fundamentally opposed to racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of bigotry.
Bernie Sanders is the closest thing America has had to a left wing candidate, yet anyone who knows anything about left wing ideology knows that he is center left at the very most. He’s not even calling for the elimination of the state.
