A little background. I grew up in a largely fascist town. And I don't mean "fascist" in a mocking sense, but were literally 7 families out of 10 have various pictures of Mussolini all over their houses and stores, who are not afraid to declare themselves as nostalgic of the Fascist Totalitarianism and to declare themselves as intolerant and other things of this kind.
I have personally being part of this culture, even as a child, I remember thinking that their thoughts were insanely inhuman, so naturally, when I was very young I was dragged towards Extreme Left (meaning Marxism, not modern day definition of Communism). I remember debating in 5th grade about the assassination of Matteotti, while I was saying that the Senator was an hero, everyone else claimed his murder to be an act of justice, as his speech could have had put a premature end to "Italian best historical period".
With the year passing, I started abandoning those extreme points of view, starting to think of them as overly optimistic and impossible to apply in an individualistic society. Especially after reading "I Malavoglia" I started to think that people of low or mid-low classes never had and never will have a role in society. I still think so.
Now, why this whole introduction? Well. Let's take a look to all what the one that I call "Internet Left" has to speak of, as the following two points are the major cause of my hate.
1 - Lack of actual interesting point of view
I honestly do not recollect any of the speeches in favor of the masses through their words, all I can read are...personal issues?
Seriously, aside for MAYBE public instruction and public Healthcare those things they claim have nothing to do with economy, nor with societies's problems. I'm quite sure many of those "liberals" have not any actually interest in Economy in general, actually.
Why doesn't the Left members speak of the "Class Struggle" any longer? Because workers situation is not half as bad as it was in the 1800s? Well, guess what? Sexism, racism and homophobia or any kind of discrimination are not as bad as they used to be as well! Why are those things, which were just satellite problems to the major points of Hegelian Left, became predominant with the time? I'm not saying they shouldn't be discussed at all, but not every fucking things should be about them. You cannot use "discrimination" for excusing every single of your problems, because guess what? Overusing something makes it worthless :)
2 - Elitist attitude
Thankfully this does not apply to everyone, but I would say with no problem to at least 40% of "liberals" I know in person. They just feel superior. And they also need to show to be superior to you. WHICH IS THE FUCKING OPPOSITE OF BEING IN FAVOR OF THE MASSES.
There is this one guy I'm thinking of which has made of this attitude his living cause. Whatever you are speaking of, you will start mock the argument or people who are particularly able to speak about it, he will start quoting some Philosopher or some Author, etc. Also, and this class is the worst one, he is a "radical chic" or, as I call it, a "radical shit", people who just take clothes at random to show how much they don't care what your inferior mind think of them.
I could list many, many other reasons for my hate towards Left, but now let's get to the point and the end of myTake
I criticize the Left because I'm part of it and I wish it to become more similar to what it is in my vision.
