Apparently, those on the left that were almost serene in their belief that this election was a lock for Hillary have suffered a severe reality adjustment and have woken up to what we've been saying for months now..."Don't underestimate Donald".

Acquaintances that I knew supported Hillary have 'overnight' become vitriolic in their response. It is now 'he's a fascist and nothing will convince me otherwise". Gone is the mild mannered mere 'racist' label and subsequent dismissal of Trump as a subject. It is now outright hate.

It is both amusing and more than a little troubling as no real dialogue seems possible in face of this disconcerted reaction/rant from the left.

Being in a magnanimous mood following the massive exposure of the Trump the man, father and businessman which has been studiously avoided by the MSM, I will admit the small truth that gives strength to the overall hyperbole of the left. Every 'sword' has two edges. Placing stress on one specific religion or ethnicity can, potentially, open the door to a slippery slope that 'could' lead to a fascist mentality. Both in the general population and in the gov't, itself.

That does not, however, excuse any comparison to Hitler or the like.

One might as well label a purchaser of a gun as a 'murderer', merely for buying the gun.....LOL. Yes, the possibility exists that the buyer intends to kill someone. The odds? Too obvious to bother with. Of course, there's little motive in labelling him so....unless there's political motive....

Now add in the fact that virtually everyone one of us is likely 'registered' in one form or another with almost an instantaneous collation into any category the Gov't sees fit and the hue and cry becomes a yawner.

Could it end up being a mistake? Sure...could. What we have been doing, and not doing, has definitely been a mistake.

If that issue causes concern, then look at the other issues that he accurately pointed out.

Overall, the left has taken the 'wake-up call' very poorly.....

I've got several pallets of ammunition ... and a re-loading bench too. Does that make me the biggest mass murderer of all time? LOL

Nice post.

The left has to call Trump and his supporters racists, fascists.

They can't debate on issues.
They can't speak of Hillary's accomplishments.
They can't argue based on values, ethics, morality.

This is the only weapon in their arsenal.

exactly!
to quote margaret thatcher:


I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.


the more rabid and irrational the attacks against trump are the more you can be sure that they have become desperate and can`t offer a real political argument against him.

Don't underestimate Donald


You mean don't underestimate the stupidity (and immaturity) of the American people.

Trump does speak like someone who's either crazy, a fascist or both, you really can't deny it unless you're dishonest.

And I don't want a businessman running the country, so that argument doesn't work with me, I want someone who cares about more than money.

yep, I love how when liberals feel threatened with defeat they reduce themselves to temper tantrums. It's going to be really fun to watch.

This is a perfect example.

Those who disagree with your ideology and favor Trump are stupid and immature.

By your reasoning, only smart and mature people are voting for Hillary.

But why?

The only sides I see are the ones where one side wants bigger government and more authoritarian control and the other "side" wants freedom.

Then you only pay attention to some very slanted reporting and have a fairly biased view of history.

Whole government wants to screw you, some of them will screw you personally, others will sell you down river to their corporate buddies; either way it's a cesspool, nobody's clean and you're all fooling yourself if you think anythings going to change regardless of who gets elected.

But don't worry, I'm not so smug that I'll ever say I told you so, I'll just keep on reminding you that we've been through all this before.
