I always get David and SunRageAgainsttheMachine confused. However, were I to guess, I would have to say that David's specific version of neoconservatism incorporates a more communitarian aspect, and ties this into general lifestyle and morality questions as well.

Left, of sorts. I don't know the particulars, but I assume an emphasis on gender issues.

Christian Right, which is rather ironic given his academic focus. There are some communitarian aspects to his worldview, but I am left to assume they are either a product of his religion, or a means by which he reconciles the normlessness of market mechanisms with his faith and social conservatism.

Politically very liberal in the standard, American, terminology. Personally, he has many idiosyncrasies, but I think politically he'd be standard left.

Not too sure, but it manifests as a method of lazily assigning political labels. That, and center-left, I'd surmise.

Liberalism, in the broad internationalist sense of integration and human rights.

Hawkish center-right liberal. While Barry Goldwater is an obvious comparison, but others might be William F. Buckley, Rudy Giuliani, Joseph Lieberman, or Tom Ridge (broad array, but a few uniting characteristics).

Misanthropic, reactionary leftism. His hatred for life extends to his hatred for the living.

Hawkish right-liberal. Democracy, neoliberalism, and Americanism in terms of a governmental sense, though not necessarily a cultural one.

[Guys, one or two-Word answers are no fun]

While I don't know much about the chap, owing to his endorsements and username, I am left to assume that he is that brand of center leftist who has bought into it as a "movement".

Left-wing Christian Democrat, or the liberal end of the communitarians; he fits into the broad liberal movement in the country, though standing perhaps slightly to the right of its orthodox stalwarts, and to the left of the so-called "neoliberals" and the Readyforherists.

Bog standard "alt leftists". I know that's not a real thing; I'm thinking essentially an idiosyncratic Sandersista.

Oh, wow, this'll be fun. Too bad I'm on mobile.

His perceived reactionary credentials allow him a certain amount of ideological versatility that makes him hard to pin down. His self-identification amounts to being one of those "the party changed, not me" ex-Democrats while also claiming to be a Libertarian. He seems to have turned sour on Trump, and occasionally displays support for environmentalism. He could be best called a hetorodox populist right-winger.

"A poster boy for globalism" pretty much sums it up. Tongue Beyond that, parrotguy is easily identifiable as a left-leaning, internationalist liberal. A defining feature of his worldview is that it is unequivocally modern, affirming a number of liberal human rights and the belief that they transcend borders and nationality--or at least ought to. Meanwhile, he* has no desire to rock the boat with any outlandishly radical "reforms" to capitalism, instead preferring general stability and the triumph of gradualism in that sphere.

Center-left with undoubtedly strong pro-Israel beliefs.

Emphasis on the skip. Tongue

Pragmatic globalist social democrat, presumably smart enough not to fall into obviously dangerous cognitive traps of ideology while nevertheless being identifiably left-wing.
