Thank you all for taking the time to read the OP and for your kind replies. A large portion of the OP is actually my reply on another thread. I kind of started ranting and eventually realized I had a thread.

I don't think all people on the left are like this and I don't think everyone on the right is perfect.

I just know that at least half the country voted for Trump and they weren't racists or xenophobes or misogynistic, or whatever else.

Sorry I don't have much else to add, I am pretty tired now.

Hah! Watch out OP... right after the election was over, I commented in a thread about where do we go now... that the left needs to stop with the labels and categories. That would be a start. Of course, I was dismissed in a condescending way as most hard lefters are prone to do. I stopped participating in the thread because I was going to lose my temper with the childishness. Im old and dont have the time to waste on pseudo-martyrs.

You mentioned lables as well. It would be the best start and an easy start at that. They can start little and learn tolerance. WHen they accomplish that, theyd learn that we are all.. most of us.. are throwing off the chains of the party and learning a new paradigm. I want to know about the whole person... WHO they are, not what pinbacks they wear in their skin. If they are happy to be known as JUST a democrat.. well, good luck in life.

See this is the thing. Numbers may be off slightly. But I believe 95% of humans on this planet are simple folk. They want to live their lives with their family and loved ones. They have extreme desires or hatreds. They aren't perfect by any means, but they aren't the problem either.

It's actually only a very very small segment of society creating most of our social problems. They aren't content simply living their lives. They are... broken somehow. This is the true basket of deplorables. It includes many personality types. The people you are talking about is just one group of bad apples spoiling the whole bunch. Course you mentioned another group the 1% but that's not accurate, it's more like the .001% or something like that. Many successful people aren't the problem. I wish they were it'd be more simple a problem to fix, but some are simply successful normal people.

That said, the super rich that are problem people are the worst of all. They are the most protected from their crimes, and can with a phone call utterly destroy the lives of millions of people. They make the most dedicated terrorist or serial killer, without their resources look like toddlers having throwing a tantrum standing next to the incredible hulk going full rampage. Worst part, unlike the others, since they can do these things "legally" and under the protection of the "law" no one can do a thing about it. These people control the law.

These rioting dividers are as you said nothing more than divisive minions of the elite, a distraction, tools to keep us at each others throats. Most people on the "left" aren't really like this. It's a small loud group of extremists thrown into overdrive because it's beneficial to a greater threat that these bad apples make asses of themselves to draw attention back away from themselves.

There is no reasoning with these people, there is no convincing them to stop, they will keep screaming and doing their thing, and the media will keep covering them to push that divide, because that's the current mission statement. Acknowledging them, giving them more power than they are worth is how they win at this point. Falling into their trap is allowing us to divide ourselves from the other 95% of normal people. Why? Because this division is pushed by multiple groups on all sides. Take the KKK supposedly supporting Trump. It has literally nothing to with the Trump and the KKK being buddies. Trump has basically told them to # off many times. The KKK support Trump because that's part of creating the division we have today. Tools the lot of them.

These extremist groups may have lots of bleating sheep following their wolf masters, but don't confuse the two. The average KKK member may for example be nothing but an ignorant racist that believes the supposed ideals of the KKK for example, same withe many other "groups" of extremists, but the button pushers, the people in charge, controlling or at least manipulating the message their sheep soldiers follow, well they know better. They could care less about the extremist view. They know the KKK will never be in charge or relevant again, not really, they'll never rule the country, they know the KKK is detested. But there is power in that, and that power is why the KKK "supports" Trump. To bring him down by association as well as Trumps non KKK supporters.

These extreme groups exist simply to divide us all, and keep our attention away from the real threat which hurting billions of people everyday, laughing at our stupidity, while indulging in any psychotic disturbed whim they feel like, no taboo to low for them to go, all while gorging in their gilded throwns wastefully throwing what they don't eat in the trash having purposely made too much.

The people you are talking about aren't the problem, they are a magic trick and a symptom of the real problem, a tool used to accomplish their goals. You were close with the 1% but that too was painting too broad a brush. These people play a dangerous game, they are outnumbered 100's of millions to one, but for us to win, we need to stop being decent normal people for a bit. We can't win by simply leading our lives the way we want.

At least be original.
I know it's hard to be original as 'y'all' are used to copy paste most popular user comments from Infowars or whatever cesspool you get your opinions from, but this is just pathetic.

I thought it was pretty well stated. What malfunction are you suffering? I've noticed people shuffling about in a state of perpetual offense. They are easy to spot. They have this grimaced expression like Nancy Grace eating a lemon and they can't seem to function in normal situations.

Do you have Nancy Grace face?

My sympathy if so.

Well she is a C word.

It must be difficult to see the inferior world all about you and feel under siege by everyone not as smart as you all the time.

Given her choice of words and attitude she seems like an idiot I would run circles around until she blew a fuse for life. Im just an uneducated white male so no worries...lol

The thing about western masochists is it has been a while since they have met a real sadist. The CTRL-Left silences decent people while emboldening the ones we should really fear.

I'm so sorry to see this here this morning. I watched Van Jones "The Messy Truth" last night, and his honest efforts to try to join Americans together again after this huge rift we've experienced. I know I've been trying. I think Trump's actions as of late have promise, although unconventional, who is to say that won't be successful? I hope they are. The proof is in the pudding of course, but I'm not going to put him down with criticisms unless something turns out to have been dishonest. Unless there is good reason to. I see a glimmer of hope. In other words, I'm trying to understand and accept.

But to see this, the same old usual suspects, bashing and complaining about the same old things, has kind of busted my bubble. It will take us all to try to mend things, not just a few. To keep playing the same old tunes over and over again, accomplishes what? Keeping the friction going among our own people. But what I see here is not just friction. In some cases it absolute hatred. Disdain. Name calling, applying false motivations to people, and guessing at what they want to see the country become.

And to say with pride "I put my headphones on so I won't have to hear a different point of view?" When is that something to be proud of?

And by the way, There is NO "alt-left". I've seen this a good bit lately, mostly from Republicans and the Alt-right, who gave themselves a name and an agenda. There is no such group for Dems.

Then what should we call them? Stand on their head, because that's how far they've gone? Because they are no longer the left that we grew up with. (And that group still exist and I am sure they don't want to be lumped in with them.

ETA: It seems they disagree. They have their own website, Altleft.com
They call themselves the Left wing of the alt right.

At least make some effort to stop being so vicious. Try.

People far to the left are typically socialists. Not many of them around, although the party does have some, as does ATS.

I'm not being vicious I'm being honest!

I posted a thread the other day about alt left. They have lost their minds! How is saying that vicious? If anything I am being kind by trying to separate them from normal left leaning people. Yeah, I see where you are doing so much to "bring us together", please

Your OP makes some good points.
I've been seeing some psychotic stuff lately.

Sure, there are lots of crazy people on all sides of the political spectrum, but one side is literally going overboard lately...
