Maybe Wikipedia will help by offering points of view.

Some definitions or uses of the term Wahhabi Islam include:    

  "a corpus of doctrines", and "a set of attitudes and behavior, derived from the teachings of a particularly severe religious reformist who lived in central Arabia in the mid-eighteenth century" (Gilles Kepel)

"pure Islam" (David Commins, paraphrasing supporters' definition), that does not deviate from Sharia law in any way and should be called Islam and not Wahhabism. (King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, King of Saudi Arabia)

 "a misguided creed that fosters intolerance, promotes simplistic theology, and restricts Islam's capacity for adaption to diverse and shifting circumstances" (David Commins, paraphrasing opponents' definition)

 "a conservative reform movement ... the creed upon which the kingdom of Saudi Arabia was founded, and [which] has influenced Islamic movements worldwide" (Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim world)

 "a sect dominant in Saudi Arabia and Qatar" with footholds in "India, Africa, and elsewhere", with a "steadfastly fundamentalist interpretation of Islam in the tradition of Ibn Hanbal" (Cyril Glasse)

an "eighteenth-century reformist/revivalist movement for sociomoral reconstruction of society", "founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab" (Oxford Dictionary of Islam).

originally a "literal revivification" of Islamic principles that ignored the spiritual side of Islam, that "rose on the wings of enthusiasm and longing and then sank down into the lowlands of pharisaic self-righteousness" after gaining power and losing its "longing and humility" (Muhammad Asad

"a political trend" within Islam that "has been adopted for power-sharing purposes", but cannot be called a sect because "It has no special practices, nor special rites, and no special interpretation of religion that differ from the main body of Sunni Islam" (Abdallah Al Obeid, the former dean of the Islamic University of Medina and member of the Saudi Consultative Council)

"the true salafist movement". Starting out as a theological reform movement, it had "the goal of calling (da'wa) people to restore the 'real' meaning of tawhid (oneness of God or monotheism) and to disregard and deconstruct 'traditional' disciplines and practices that evolved in Islamic history such as theology and jurisprudence and the traditions of visiting tombs and shrines of venerated individuals." (Ahmad Moussalli)

a term used by opponents of Salafism in hopes of besmirching that movement by suggesting foreign influence and "conjuring up images of Saudi Arabia". The term is "most frequently used in countries where Salafis are a small minority" of the Muslim community but "have made recent inroads" in "converting" the local population to Salafism. (Quintan Wiktorowicz)

a blanket term used inaccurately to refer to "any Islamic movement that has an apparent tendency toward misogyny, militantism, extremism, or strict and literal interpretation of the Qur'an and hadith" (Natana J. DeLong-Bas)

It’s wikipedia :hahaha:

Doesn't matter. I'm only trying to help you express your ideas in words. It seems to be so easy in this forum to blame "wahabbis", but when one is asked to be more specific in what is a salafi or a wahabbi there's just silence. You don't seem to know what it is or to even have a specific opinion about what it is. It's just "them" ="not confirming to Shia narrative". In which case it's basically a lie.

I don’t mind any sect

if somebody is siding with the enemies of the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) then to me they are useless regardless of what sect they follow!

Blindness, Hard Heartedness, Brashness, Hastiness, Strictness, Mercilessness, Boorishness 

A minion embodiment of Umer, Aisha, and Khalid all combined into a motley fool of criminals turned mullahs.

They remind me of these ayaat:

 إِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ فِي الدَّرْكِ الْأَسْفَلِ مِنَ النَّارِ وَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُمْ نَصِيرًا (Nisa: 145)

Indeed, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire - and never will you find for them a helper -

 

ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَاهُ أَسْفَلَ سَافِلِينَ (Teen: 5)

We return him to the lowest of the low.

If it's TRUE to its description I.e way of salaf then salafism is the only true form of Islam 

However salaf were nothing like the literalist, monolithic,  imperialist robots funded by gulf Petro dollars.

Just to give a simple example they all hail Umar as a great leader of ummah regardless of what u may think of him, it's fair to say Umar would have been appalled at the inherited decadent kingship which claims to be the flag bearers of this movement.But most salafis don’t See this contradiction

Going by my thread 

The Salafis are not united, especially on this issue of loyalty to a corrupt ruler with labels being thrown around like Khaariji or Madkhali depending on which end of the spectrum one is.

This childish beef is still going on since that thread began btw, BroHajji dropped another diss video against Shamsi, mocking how he overuses the word Na'am to give further weight to his own stance.

Do "most salafi" declare this what you mentioned of Umar? If so where and who?

The correct definition of Salafism:

Salafism, Salafi movement(noun)

a militant group of extremist Sunnis who believe themselves the only correct interpreters of the Koran and consider moderate Muslims to be infidels; seek to convert all Muslims and to insure that its own fundamentalist version of Islam will dominate the world

So Salafism means a terrorism in simple words.
