This "liberal" was home last night, reading a book. Didn't throw one rock through one window. But, hey, if I'm in with them, so be it.

Then ignore the horse sh*t. The American Left is essentially powerless at the moment. You should enjoy it.

So you're a centrist who argues with the right and so you are really a rightest who sounds off as a fascist. Why do you get to self-identify while spouting off these generalities about everyone else? That's a pretty fascist attitude. It's also exactly the way Trump behaves.

Liberalism is much broader than your prism and the diversity that this brings is exhilarating. Do you know any republicans who you recognize as interesting artists or musicians? I'm just curious if you make the same distinction in politics and other areas where the fissure between right and left is also very wide. You might think about that the next time you are overwhelmed by how exhausted you are by the left.

Stop right there. You can call yourself anything you want to, but you words tell us exactly what you are. If you don't have the courage to admit it, that's OK. The way things are going, nobody will admit to being a conservative soon. You are just ahead of the curve.

Thanks God. You are certainly entitled to your opinion.

Some (not all)liberals posting here are way more classy post -election than the democratic leadership is exhibiting. Thats why its so much fun to watch this meltdown. Will a new democratic leader with a spine emerge from this wreckage?

I watched the rightists in Washington and all around the country meltdown like five year olds for eight years solid. Never once found it fun.

You wanted two different Americas, you got it.

democratic leaders should work to help quell the hostility. When the left is angry things spiral into violence quickly.

But I thought you didn't judge people until you met them? You sure have no problem doing it with Mexicans and liberals you read about. If you didn't like it when I did it to you, then perhaps you should refrain from doing it to others.

You support a guy who urged his supporters to physically attack people who disagreed with him. He even offered to pay their lawyer fees. Now you want Democrat leaders to quell the hostility? Your hypocrisy is amazing.

which proves what to you? Trump recommended violence during his campaign, remember? They appear to be following the lead.

Can we at least agree that it is never right for anyone - on the right or the left - to initiate violence against others? Dissent and peaceful protests are one thing...but destruction of property and physically attacking those who have opposing views is wrong no matter which side it is coming from.

My question is...where was law enforcement? I read somewhere that there were NO arrests. Was law enforcement instructed to stand down, and if so, why? I've read various accounts...but apparently there was something like 100-200 of these agitators, and apparently the rioting went on for quite some time. Were the cops just standing around watching? What about the safety of the college students who were there, either to peacefully protest or attend the event? Was it total incompetence or an intentional stand down?

"at odds" as in "to disagree"...which has little or nothing to do with "Judging"....lol

Not anymore. Not when the President ran a campaign urging violence, and was then voted in. That's a declaration that violence is now acceptable, per the President of the United States. We all heard it.

I like how you are adding "lol" to the end of your posts to signify that you are not offended. Hysterical. Anyway, you said "Mexicans have no respect for American laws". If you don't see that as a judgment of character, then I'm at a loss for words.

I'm not asking you what Trump said. I'm asking about your own personal code of ethics. If Trump made those statements then those statements should be called out and condemned. I don't think we should be condoning violence from either side. Nor do I believe we should be basing our personal code of ethics on what the president says. I believe that it is always wrong to initiate violence against another person or group of people. I was hoping that everyone here shared that belief. But I guess not.

Sure, but do these disclaimers have to eternally be given? A vast, vast majority of people agree with this.

However, equally as wrong is when 10 anarchists throw rocks at a coffee shop, they are regarded as representative of the entire left. This happens constantly.

By most reports, the Berkeley violence was the work of around 150 masked people. The balaclava is the trademark of anarchists.

Let's say that we define the "left" as just people that voted for Clinton. 150 people out of 65 million is 0.0002%. Besides, anarchists don't vote anyway. If you believe that 0.0002% is representative of 65 million, then further conversations like these are pointless.

Richard Spencer recently posted this on his twitter feed:



https://twitter.com/RichardBSpencer/status/827239243214827520

Doesn't really matter to me if someone punches that guy, unless you think that placing liberals in concentration camps is something worth defending.

The expectation that any and all human beings will take endless amounts of verbal abuse and not eventually retaliate violently goes against basic human nature. Right or wrong, it's gonna happen. Arguments turning to violence goes back to Cain and Abel.

The president of the United States urged violence during his campaign, and he was voted in by the right. Any violence you see on the news is a direct result of what they voted in. I do believe that the President should be an example of what American code of ethics should be. A leader is meant to be followed.

One of the most stupid things I read on the Whipping Post is - "where was the outrage when..."

It is a tired, way over used line.

Just my opinion of course.

Hey goob,

Look at your word, "meltdown". The fact of the matter is that can just about describe minimally a once a day event with Trump. His typical day is - who is he going to antagonize, piss off, go after, make a lie about, make up facts, try to minimize, etc.

X2

He used it as a calling card to earn votes. He knew he could appeal to factions of voters and amp up anger. What a strategy to get votes; truly an honorable individual and someone you would want as a role model for your kids or grandkids.

Interesting that there are folks on here that at the very least are making light of the use of physical violence and the destruction of property, and at worst seem to actually be defending those actions and crimes.

And BoyntonBrother, just a couple of weeks ago you tried to convince me that individuals should not "let" political ideology affect them. Now you are arguing that we should allow a political leader to define our personal code of ethics. And the violence is coming from left wing anarchists. So you think their actions and crimes should be ignored simply because of some comments Trump made on the campaign trail?

BrerRabbit - I have no idea what you are talking about. But if you are talking about the pipeline...well, I am opposed to the pipeline. So I would stand with the Indians and farmers on that issue.
