I can't understand this whole " protesting is a right" nonsense. It's a primary, no policies are at at stake. Wanna protest? Protest with your vote. Seems that EVERYBODY has the right to vote. But methinks this isn't about actually trying to accomplish anything at all.

This is all about the narcissistic, entitled Facebook/Twitter generation. It's all about " look at me!look at me! My viewpoints are the only ones that matter!" mentality. These morons act like they're so enlightened, when in fact they're so stupid that they don't realize public opinion is steadily turning against them . Amazing


Well said. The Facebook/Twitter generation description is spot on.

These people never fully research, look into the context of the words, nor analyze anything.

They latch on to the meme of the day such as "Trump is a racist" and through their social media group, they decide to do something to make themselves feel important, "smart", and relative.

When you listen to some of them being interviewed, they can't articulate anything. All they can do is spout some meme they have been programmed with on their social media groups and paint a sign. It's not just the young and dumb either. We have a bunch of "stray dog mentality" people that see what they want to see rather than what's real.


You may want to be careful, because you just described the same mentality we experience from many Right Wingers on a daily basis. It's rare that they fully research topics or context. They just spit-out the latest talking points.

Don't even get me started on they inability to articulate. So it would appear that many of them share similarities with anti-Trump folks.

Great example of hypocrisy.


The major difference between the two groups? 1 group is trying to shut down the rights of others DIRECTLY by their actions. The other side is totalky in disagreement with their foes but allows and affords yhem all the rights that they enjoy.


So you don't disagree with my original assertion.

Cool.

As far as denying rights, I will agree that the GOP does not act like this. They try to deny rights at a much bigger level through government and politics.

Well no kidding.

I support those that pay me, and employ me, and make all the stuff I use on a daily basis.

I don't support people like Sanders, and Clinton that created fiat currency, That make products more expensive, and put my job in jeopardy on a daily basis.

In other words Clinton, and Sanders supporters need to stop snipping about what they don't have, and start looking at what they DO have.

I'm curious why Sanders hasn't condemned these actions? These people preach about Sanders, while wearing ski masks and attack people. Why hasn't he told them to stop?

I mean... people expect Trump to take personal responsibility for everything and everyone at his rally's. Why is this any different?

Oh.. and I've YET to hear a clear and concise reason for these people to be protesting. Why? Because Trump hates Mexicans? Well.. we know that is a bunch of contrived MSM bulls***. Oh wait.. the lefties want to claim he is 'literally Hitler'. Well.. no. He's not. Oh I know.. it's because he hates Muslims. Well? If he does so what. Do you see what they are doing over in Europe? Every day I read articles about rapes and attacks by what the media calls "refugee children". Yeah.. children. 34 year old fully bearded Muslim children who are "refugees". Except they aren't refugees. I shouldn't have to explain the definition. Do you want that here? Do you?

I never liked Trump. I still think he is a pompous jerk. But he is the ONLY candidate right now who seems to care about America and the direction it is heading. He hasn't bowed to any good old boy tactics. He hasn't taken bribe money. He hasn't made ridiculous proposals for free-everything that you and I will end up paying out the a** for.

And... isn't it the American peoples RIGHT to vote for whom THEY want to? Isn't this the democratic process? So these little whiny SJW's are out causing trouble, because in their backwards little minds, people voting for whom THEY want to is racist.

I hate to say this.. but I hope in a way this does spark something bigger. Because this country is heading down the toilet. And AS an American... I'm sick of seeing these psychotic 20 something SJW's taking control.

Don't forget the conservative Bush that bailed out Wall Street?

$29 trillion in waste!

www.cnbc.com...

Get a life and quit defending corporate politicians!


Don't forget TARP was paid back. Unlike the bailouts under the current guy.

Don't forget who created the federal reserve, and fanny and freddy that guarantee 95% of all US mortgages.

Don't forget who forced bankers to lend to people who they knew could NOT repay those loans.

Oh yeah the foxes 'guarding' the hen house saying nothing to see there move right along.



www.treasury.gov...

Have anything OTHER than 'factually incorrect' statements from Sanders ?

Funny thing about bailouts though.

That is what socialism IS.



You are defending and attacking the same thing, corporate politicians, Both Ds & Rs that have served in the last 5 decades are corps. There has been no socialists, just the corporate politicians you attack and defend!

You're a corporate supporter! Duh!



They were all socialists. They all used the government to force solutions.

What are they afraid of. They certainly want free speech for themselves. What do they gain by blocking Trump from being heard? A lot more pissed off people--at them. Keep it up, thugs! You're showing what you stand for!

I agree that leftists don't have the market on ignorance cornered. I live in Arizona and I know plenty of ignorant conservatives. As for your second paragraph, any possible denial of rights that you speak of is done LEGALLY, Through proper channels. It seems perhaps these so-called protesters should focus on those issues.

No, there were plenty of protests in 12...and 08...and 04...and 00...and so on but there were actual issues. War...Economy....why would Black Lives Matter protest a trump rally? Name ONE thing that someone who supports BLM should be pissed with Trump about....


The other rallies are boring to be honest. Put on the TV or look at the internet right now...what is on...

TRUMP!

That makes it better?

The Leftists are making it tough for people to travel freely during their protests. The Right Wingers make you take a case to the supreme court just so you can marry someone of the same sex or make a medical decision without their involvement.

There is an obvious difference, but it's tough to tell if one is better than the other.

I think this is the final straw. I am voting for Trump. I hate the guy but I cant condone the actions of these people. Who ever is organizing this IS a Nazi. I would rather risk it with Trump than knowingly help one who is.

The left is dangerous. This can only lead to more injustice on their part.

I dont even care about the known dangers of Trump. He will probably tone it down once he is elected. He just wants to win and is playing politics.

He deserves to win.

The left deserves to lose.



I feel the same way

I do always. I also know you do not draw unless you intend to shoot. You also do not fire warnings shots. There are lots of people who should not carry who would fire based on emotion and not fact.

Little to they realize their galvanizing more support for Trump. I'm sure not all those in traffic were going to see Trump.

Basically because Trump had the nerve to run for Potus.

Which anyone has the RIGHT to do.

So you admit it then? One group uses the law to attempt to remedy things that they disagree with. The other one breaks the law. Just stop, you're digging yourself deeper.
