The Left is No Longer Liberal.

"The issues I care about most, free speech, rights of the individual, and limited government designed to maximize liberty, have almost nothing to do anymore with the modern American Left. My positions basically haven't changed, but I've watched as my team has gone off the deep end."

G'Day

That item/video in the O/P is overtly American-centric...
Little relevance to much of the remaining world, in reality..

Where what the Yanks call "left-wing liberals" is actually more "centrist/moderate".



THE 'Liberal' Party in Australia has always been a centre-right conservative political group..
