Sounds about right.

It's the type of behaviour that makes devout leftists abandon the left, such as Christopher Hitchens or Nick Cohen. Mugged by reality they call it.

Nick Cohen wrote a good book recently called "What's Left?" It turns out, not much.

Answer me this: why do "peaceful" anti-Trump protestors at his rallies carry eggs?

to throw at supporters of a man whose campaign relies solely upon hate speech.
farage and nick griffin, in recent times suffer the same problem here.
blame the ills of the world on a minority, then suffer the backlash.


So it's OK to physically assault people who are doing nothing more than listening to a speech? Hillary blames the ills of America on gun owners....should I be bringing eggs to her speeches and attack those who attend?

Both sides can be hateful but it's the Progressive movement that seems to be the agitators.

maybe they were Mexican-Americans, and they don't like being called rapists and murderers. if someone called me that, I'd be throwing eggs, too


I've been called "honky", "white-bred", "gringo", "puta" and all kinds of other things during political discussions but I don't retaliate because that's not how we conduct ourselves in this country.

I think Trump has done this country a great service. He is showing everyone the intolerance and hatred being spewed by the Left.

It is an obvious historical fact, the left is responsible for every major massacre of the 20th century.


Violence is a mainstay of leftism. The Left had its beginning in the French revolution, and their first bright idea was the Reign of Terror. The guillotine was a symbol of the revolution.


Lefties also lose their minds if anyone disagrees with their rhetoric.

Which is why Pol Pot, MAO and Stalin killed hundreds of millions between them.

Everyone must agree or else.

You don't see that out of the right.



those 3 you mentioned were brutal dictators using their own secret police and army to kill and torture millions of their own citizens....so, what does this have to do with the "left" of present day politics......there are no dots to connect, because there isn't a connection

please write to Trump and tell him as strongly as you've told us that he should "KEEP IT UP"...that way he is sure to beat the demos, by showing all that, "left-leaning intolerance and hatred", you say is happening.

I doubt that writing a letter to the man will help him beat the Dems especially considering the average voter doesn't even know who he/she is voting for. I'm no fan of Trump because I simply don't trust him but he IS exposing the extreme Progressive Left for who they are - intolerant, hypocritical, whiners who have no trouble dishing it out but can't handle it in return.

Really? and the socialism of the 21st century of Venezuela? That has nothing to do with the left either?

Chavez went after his opposition, including radio and tv broadcasters, just like the Obama administration and his left wing thugs have been doing.

Obama Declares War on Conservative Talk Radio
By Jim Boulet, Jr.
Barack Obama sought to silence his critics during his 2008 campaign. Now, with the ink barely dry on this November's ballots, Obama has begun a war against conservative talk radio.

Obama is on record as saying he does not plan an exhumation of the now-dead "Fairness Doctrine". Instead, Obama's attack on free speech will be far less understood by the general public and accordingly, far more dangerous.

The late community organizer Saul Alinsky taught his followers to strike hard from an unexpected direction, an approach known as Alinsky jujitsu.

Obama himself not only worked as an organizer for an Alinsky offshoot organization, Chicago's Developing Communities Project, but would go on to teach classes in Alinsky's beliefs and methods.

"Alinsky jujitsu" as applied to conservative talk radio means using vague rules already on the books to threaten any station which dares to air conservative programs with the loss of its valuable broadcast license.
...
Localism is one of the rare issues on which Obama himself has been outspoken.

On September 20, 2007, Obama submitted a pro-localism written statement to an FCC hearing held at the Chicago headquarters of Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.'s Operation Push.

Furthermore, the Obama transition team knows all about the potential of localism as a means of silencing conservative dissent. The head of the Obama transition team is John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress.

In 2007, the Center for American Progress issued a report, The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio. This report complained that there was too much conservative talk on the radio because of "the absence of localism in American radio markets" and urged the FCC to "ensure greater local accountability over radio licensing.
...
FCC complaints as politics by other means

Remember that an FCC license is required for any radio or television station to legally operate in the United States. A single complaint from anyone can significantly hinder a station's license renewal process or even cost the station its FCC license entirely.

There have been some attempts to utilize the FCC complaint process for partisan political ends, most memorably in 2004, when Sinclair Broadcasting agreed to air a documentary questioning Senator John Kerry's war record:

Poised to pre-empt programming on its 62 television stations to run a negative documentary about Sen. John Kerry, Sinclair Broadcast Group has come under fire from critics calling it partisan and questioning whether it is failing federal broadcast requirements to reflect local interests.

Members of Congress and independent media groups have questioned the company's willingness to respect "localism," a section of federal law that requires media companies to cover local issues and provide an outlet for local voices.


One group, The Leftcoaster, went further:

But what isn't done a lot which requires the broadcaster to rack up expensive legal fees, is to challenge every one of their affiliates' FCC license renewals as they come up this year and next. ... [T]here still is time to organize and file Petitions or objections by November 1, 2004 for Sinclair stations in North Carolina and South Carolina, and for Florida by January 1, 2005.

More recently, the National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium issued a "fill in the blanks" official FCC complaint form which begins "Anything that you feel is offensive is worth reporting."

Of course these regulations have been used by the left to only force their own views. The same can be said of anything the Obama administration has done since day one.


Video: FCC 'Diversity' Czar on Chavez's Venezuela: 'Incredible...Democratic Revolution'
By Seton Motley | August 28, 2009 | 11:21 AM EDT

Editor's Note: Audio for the video at right is available here.

We have written often about Mark Lloyd, who has since his July 29 appointment been reveling in the position created just for him, "Chief Diversity Officer" at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

As we have repeatedly stated, Chief Diversity Officer Lloyd is virulently anti-capitalist, almost myopically racially fixated and exuberantly pro-regulation.

(It will come as no surprise to those who follow the work of the Media Research Center to learn that Lloyd was also at one time, prior to attending law school, an Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer for among other outlets NBC and CNN.)

Lloyd is in fact a Saul Alinsky disciple. In his 2006 book entitled Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America, he calls for an all-out "confrontational movement" against private media. He wants leftist activists - through incessant political pressure - and the government - through the creation of a totally untenable operating environment of fees, fines and regulations - to work together to force the commercial broadcasters out, to be replaced by public broadcasters.

FCC’s New 'Diversity Officer' Wants to Force Private Broadcasters to Fund Public Broadcasters Dollar for Dollar

After all, people in the far left, and even a lot in the left in general have seen/see Chavez as "a peace loving man who only wanted to fight for the poor people"...

What happened in Venezuela will happen here, but since other tactics have failed the left in general they are moving in to use other more controversial issues to reach the same goal that Chavez and his thugs achieved in Venezuela.
