    This will probably be played all over the place. I can't blame the GOP for capitalizing on it, the Dems have been advocating for violence recently.

    I like how the right gets all pumped up on the 2nd amendment, military supremacy, and “Maybe if you didn’t run then the cop wouldn’t have shot you.” but as soon as the left starts playing ball in their field they’re suddenly a bunch of terrified peaceniks.

    Nothing in that video "advocated for violence" and claiming that Democrats have done so is a lie. But, more broadly speaking, I say good for the Democrats showing some emotion here. We have very legitimate reasons to be angry, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    But, if you really want to see what "advocating for violence" looks like:

    Exactly, when the "right" does it, they're wrong, but when the "left" does it "they have legitimate reasons". Genius. /sarcasm

    @Chew Toy McCoy Self defense and law enforcement vs crime. They're not the same thing.

    You'd think the snowflakes and cupcakes would be a bit more mellow eh? I mean they do have their safe spaces, emotional support squirrels, coloring books, play-doh and all that...

    Guess power and not having any trumps (pun intended) all.....

    Wackadoodles!

    Got it. So violence is only justified when its sanctioned by the morals of the right.

    Newsflash, since the 2016 election we found out that the bulk of those resides on the (far) right.

    You know people who not just whine about loosing, no they manage to whine whine and whine some more bout winning.

    And so much winning to be had!!!

    Newsflash: Agree! SCOTUS, Fed Judges, lower taxes, ect.... While I am not tired of wining yet, it is nice!

    But back on topic.. Why are the safe spaces, emotional support animals, coloring books and play-doh not working to calm down the violent left?

    Source for this outrageous claim. Of course it’s the exact opposite. Instead of voting in 2016, the left decided they were going to violently oppose which is of course what’s been happening.

    Because it’s the only way they can do try to ram down their policies that the rest of the country soundly rejected.

    Since winning at the ballot box is not really an option for them:

    Maybe there needs to be a policy were twice a day they are allowed leave work (or whatever) to go outside and scream at the sky for 10 minutes. Maybe something like: Scream at the sky sessions - twice daily @ 10AM and 6PM...

    If that's not enough to clean their mind from Trump living there rent free 24/7 and the safe spaces, emotional support animals, coloring books and play-doh also fail then it might be best to find a highly competent shrink to help out with that chronic TDS and offer up some high powered calming meds...

    And there's this message from the unhinged Republican candidate opposing Democratic governor Wolf:

    Scott Wagner Just Threatened to Stomp All Over Tom Wolf’s Face “With Golf Spikes”
    https://www.phillymag.com/news/2018/10/12/scott-wagner-golf-spikes-wolf/#bloLAw8ccbcKfOtE.99

    Wagner is supported by Trump, who no doubt encouraged Wagner to emulate his own boorish, unhinged behavior.

    ...Cue Trumpsters who will say that it's only words, he didn't mean it literally, etc.

    You guys never give up the illusion that Trump delivered a resounding victory in 2016. He lost the general election by 3 million votes. I know, that's not the way we elect presidents, but still...3 million votes. That's hardly a sound rejection.

    Doesn't matter if you win by an inch, or a mile. Winning is winning.

    Agreed. However when you subtract the millions of people who didn’t vote, those who vote strictly along party lines, those who vote the lesser of 2 evils in their view because they believe in voting no matter what, and those who vote just to stick it to the other side it’s extremely disingenuous to claim that “winner” is the voice of a majority of the country. And I don’t care which party’s corporate puppet is the current winner. It’s true regardless.

    Sorry, but this more divisive garbage.

    When the Unite The Right marched in Charlottesville, I don't recall too many people calling all Republicans Nazi racists. And when one of those "very fine people" actually killed someone, I don't recall anyone suggesting that voting for a Republican was going to result in widespread violence.

    I don't believe most Republicans are violent racists.

    Please stop posting garbage like this. It is divisive. It is dishonest. And it is tearing our country apart. Americans can have different views on taxes, on foreign policy, on Government spending, healthcare, guns, and the environment.

    But having a different opinion on matters of policy doesn't make one a violent criminal.

    Stop playing the Fox News propaganda game.

    Perhaps if the Democrats ran a likable person, who didn't have so much baggage, they would have won the election, but because it was "her turn" and the revelation of the backyard shenanigans turned the DNC political theatre vile. You guys pissed off your own base and gave it to Trump.

    Here we go again with this agenda driven radioactive drool.

    The Right is always too greedy and hateful towards the Left to get any actual work done that benefits the common citizen.

    I'm not a fan of the Left neither, but they are not in power at the moment. And when they are in power, they don't have an insane unhealthy obsession with the opposing party like the Right does.

    I fully agree with you. As a left leaner this past presidential race made me disgusted with the blatant corruption of the Democratic party. Couple that with the largely conservative policies of the Obama administration and I'm done. They've become little more than the left wing of the Republican party. The whole reason the right had to start hoisting up their far right loons is because the Democrats moved so far right into Republican territory.

    It's pathetically delusional for anybody on the left (who isn't rich) to think the current Democratic party is their party.

    What irks me the most is when Democrats shame Trump supporters. Saying we're more to blame than Trump himself, citing he's the symptom and we're the problem. BUT, if you look at the facts from the Wikileaks, you can clearly see the HRC/DNC tactics they used. Specifically the pied piper strategy. How many billions of free coverage did the MSM give Trump? I read it was in the neighborhood of 2 to 4 billion dollars. So when Democrats say to us this is all your fault I like to point out the fact that they elevated Trump on this pied pier strategy to make the Republican candidate and party out to be clowns, so she can score an easy win, BUT it had backfired on them.

    Exactly. The left as "mob" theme is something devised by GOP strategists and faithfully disseminated by right wing media. Of course Trump is also in on it, calling the Democrats an angry left wing mob at a recent Iowa rally.

    Soooo....

    No comments on how quickly the new narrative of the right has been taken up by their followers?

    I have to chuckle at how quickly all these free thinkers start parroting these things. The centrists at least argue amongst themselves about the best way to make sure absolutely nothing changes. The right literally just starts posting bullet point lists from their favorite propaganda networks within hours of the articles hitting the Breitbarts of the world.

    Ah the poster above beat me to it!

    The media having paid far too much attention to Trump, Hillary having been a bad candidate and Trump’s supporters having committed gross negligence by electing such an amoral, incompetent clown can all be true.

    When Obama won the election in 2008 and 2012, did you see people who supported the opposition riot and burn cars during his inauguration? Did you see Republicans physically block his supporters from attending his campaign events? Were people from his administration kicked out of conservative businesses? Did you see Republican celebrities(few as they are) criticize him daily in the media or call him Hitler on almost-a-daily-basis?

    Hank Williams Jr., referred to Obama as Hitler once, and for that he was condemned and isolated.

    How about that guy who went to a baseball game and attacked Republican lawmakers/politicians?

    How about conservative speakers being banned from speaking at publicly funded universities? Do conservatives block regressive speakers from speaking?

    How about the fact that Democrats still cheer and support Bill Clinton? How about the fact that Bill Clinton recently shared a stage with Farracan, and no one in the media called him out on it?

    The two sides arent even close when it comes to actual violence today.

    So please stop playing the CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, NYT, WaPo, LA Times, Slate, Vox, Time, etc... propaganda game.

    And stop with the hypocrisy, double standard and violence. Thats whats tearing this country apart.
