Then pull a 360 and call putting a bumper sticker on a car vandalism and its my assumption you expect people to vandalize the car because of the bumper sticker.

What? That isn't what I am saying at all...
At most I have said that if this type of thing happens, it isn't exclusive to particular group.



Would you consider it vandalism is gay people put a gay flag sticker on church goes cars or just a harmless prank? My guess is it would be harmless so lets keep it harmless.

Yes it would be, I wouldn't condone that at all. I said I am being admittedly technical vandalism is defacing or damaging someones property. If you put something on someones car with out their permission you are defacing it.
Your flyer example is not the same thing at all, that doesn't deface it in anyway.

Got bumper stickers, stickers and yard signs most everywhere I go West Georgia/East Alabama.

Think he's going to do great in the SEC primaries!

I originally posted in "Skunk works" because it is just my conclusion that there is a culture of fear and hiding among Trump supporters, and I "predict" it will stay that way. Not based on any links I can provide. It's just noticeable among Trump and Bernie comments all over the web, and among people i personally know of (leaving Hillary out, because I really don't know who her supporters are!) Now, for sure there are plenty of rude comments about all candidates, but people who are anti Bernie USUALLY say " he seems like a nice, honest guy, but he's a socialist, I disagree with him"
While, an overwhelming amount of anti Trump people say stuff like "if I ever see that #*@, I will kill that fool, he won't be able to walk out of my neighborhood" etc, etc. I have never seen anyone say they will kill or maim Bernie Sanders!

Editing to say, I do live in an area with a ton of illegal immigrants (Riverside county, right next to San Diego California) The guy handling the petitions mentioned, a lot of people who seemed illegal (to him) would not sign the petition.

Didn't you already post this?


I believe my response in that 404'd thread may of had something to do with it's demise. Not sure, but it's possible.

In the spirit of generalizing and ignorance towards the opposite political ideology the OP portrayed in the other thread, I offered potential answers as to why we don't see many Trump stickers.

Considering Trump' supporters tend to be uneducated and poor, I speculated that they may lack the funds to purchase bumper stickers and we all know you can't buy them with food stamps. Also, it's possible that their bumpers were already covered with Nascar stickers and homages to their favorite choices in beer.

Like I said, this was just in keeping with the spirit set by the OP. If one wishes to make ignorant generalizations, well.....why not get down in the mud with them from time to time?

Noticing a lack of "Trump" bumper stickers?

Maybe it's still too soon, but normally when a candidate has a huge following (like Trump does)....like Obama did, you see people touting their campaign paraphernalia everywhere. Why not for Trump? Not that you will never see a Trump sticker or shirt, but you'll never see crowds of openly supportive people, like you did for Obama, or like the Bernie stickers I already see.

I think this says more about the people who are NOT supporting Trump, than it does about the people who are.

Trump has plenty of impassioned followers, who have already made up their minds that they are going to vote for him. I think the fear I am noticing in a lot of people, about publicly coming out to announce they are for Trump, is about the type of people who would key a car with a Trump sticker on it.

Yesterday, I stopped to sign a couple petitions outside of a shopping center, one of them had to do with deportation of illegal immigrants. A young Mexican guy stepped up to sign a petition about legalization of marijuana. He heard that one of the petitions was for deportation, and said "nah I ain't signing that" He turned to look at me (a white woman) and asked "What's she signing?" The man ignored his question, so he asked it again, sounding angry, and the man just said "She is signing a couple different petitions" and the rude guy still continued "yeah but what ones?"
I told him "None of your business, don't worry about it" then he started mumbling some nonsense about how a "stupid woman" will never be president, because that would be stupid to have a woman president. It was really out of context and made no sense, because anyone who knows anything, knows Hillary Clinton will never deport anyone, and I don't want her as president either. His point was to find a way to insult me, because he was so angered by the possibility of me signing the deportation petition.

I started thinking, what would this guy and an army of people just like him do, if they were walking through a parking lot and saw a Trump sticker on a car, and no one was looking? I have no doubt, these are just the type, so threatened and angry about everything they have taken being taken from them, you would start to see a lot of damaged cars. I think Trump supporters all have sensed the mentality they are up against, and That's why I predict they will avoid threat, and stay ambiguous for the meantime, then show themselves at the polls.


want to have some fun? Buy a bunch of trump stickers and place them on any car with a Sanders or Clinton sticker. first place a blank sticker or trump sticker over the clinton or sanders sticker make sure its in a parking lot and just set up a camera in a car parked directly across from it and watch the fun happen as we get to see how tolerant the liberals actually are to people of opposing view points.


There's a difference between tolerating opposing view points and tolerating someone vandalizing your property.

I know quite a lot of people who don't like Trump both in real life and online and I've never heard anyone say anything like this.

Do you know how many illegals are receiving food stamps and cash benefits? They for sure are not Trump supporters, and are among the angriest anti Trump crowd.

Generally speaking, you have to look at the prevalence of bumper stickers overall in your area. We don't have many, and the ones who do have bumper stickers plaster their cars with them leaving you little doubt as to where they're coming from.

If you are going to see a political bumper, it will be on those and they're more likely to display either Bernie or Carson stickers. You can guess what the rest of their bumper stickers will look like depending on which candidate you are looking at.

I live in Los Angeles. Not a Trump supporter but if I put a Trump sticker on my truck, I wouldn't have a noticeable truck within a week.

Sometimes outward support isn't worth losing your vehicle or your life in extreme cases.

Because the Left is so tolerant....ya know.

If you're hanging out with angry people that are saying this sort of stuff, you need new friends.

Whether or not you support or like Trump, this sort of talk is uncalled for.

In America, the First Amendment gives people the right to have an opinion differing from your own.

If you don't agree with people exercising their First Amendment rights, you shouldn't be using your Second Amendment rights to fix the problem.

y, I do live in an area with a ton of illegal immigrants (Riverside county, right next to San Diego California) The guy handling the petitions mentioned, a lot of people who seemed illegal (to him) would not sign the petition, and he was called a few names. It would take me days to compile all of these comments about Trump from various forums all over the web. One main source, if you ever go on Facebook, the postings from News organizations local to Southern California- that is where people with those type of comments have a field day.

Do you know how many illegals are receiving food stamps and cash benefits?


Assuming you are referring to Hispanics, they are only 10% of those that receive food stamps. I can't find any statistic that shows how much of that 10% is illegal.

Can you find that statistic?

The largest group of recipients that receive assistance are white at 40%. If Trump supporters are white, uneducated and poor, I'm sure there are many Trump supporters in there.

www.huffingtonpost.com...



They for sure are not Trump supporters, and are among the angriest anti Trump crowd.


They are angry?

Well, I hope those angry, welfare-collecting, uneducated fools don't key my car. You know, they are prone to violence and an occasional seig heil.

Where they say they would kill him?

I grew up in Riverside county, I currently live even further south in the east side of San Diego County. Never heard anyone say they want to kill trump. Sure have voiced that they dont want them president, but not the extreme you seem to be getting at.

No thanks, but by all means go ahead. You all are the ones saying it would be such a disaster. Go prove it.

And tbh it is rather conservative out where I live, don't think much would happen. I've already seen the stickers around here.

If I walked down Alvarado Street in Downtown Los Angeles, mid day with a Trump shirt on, I would not come back alive.

And that goes for MANY neighborhoods here in Los Angeles. I could name 10 off the top of my head.

I think that is a huge exaggeration, but hey if you feel that way it makes for a great hyperbole. You might have some people say harsh things to you, but I bet you could handle it.

I read somewhere that bumper stickers are generally on a vehicle of a lower class individual. I would not put one for anybody on my new truck. I took the dealers sticker off.

Come here to Los Angeles, Ground Zero, then tell everyone how nice the Illegals are. How tolerant they are.

Walk down Sunset with a Trump Shirt on. Or Carson. Or East Los. Or Bell. Or Pacoima. Or Sawtelle. Or Lennox.

Or...or...or.
