I wonder if there will ever be a time when people will be able to remove partisan blinders and honestly answer one question...

Is any form of tyranny imposed on a free people in a free country more or less tolerable when imposed by powers on the left or the right?

Without the words "it depends" anywhere in the answer.

I mean, they will stop eventually, right?


Yes, unless Trump continues to give people a reason to protest.


WHAT ?

The guy wasn't even elected president and people were protesting.

IMO, you cannot justify a false equivalence with an illogical fallacy - the reality is, is that snowflakes use Trump as an excuse to be offended by things that they have previously tolerated and even encouraged when a black liberal POTUS took the same actions.



Dude come to America.

We need you.

Since we have open borders now.

That won't be a problem.

Because I've decided that whats good for the goose is good for the gander


So you want to be the mirror image of a libtard? Is that a contard? Perhaps a Reptard?



then effective immediately, his skin color and just his very existence offends me and when I'm offended I expect everyone to change to suit me - just like what the libtards expect.


If you want to act and discuss issues like a petulant child, that is your prerogative.

Perhaps he was giving them a reason they felt worthy of protest.

You have to first have a consensus definition of "partisan blinders" and "free people" and "free country" and "left" and "right" - which, from observation, are variable definitions that change as society changes.

(see? I just said "it depends" without using that phrase! (I'm being a dreadful smartypants today.))

May I just say. I learned something today.

Did you know there are Non-profit organizations that pay to send people to these protests, pay their bail and also credit them with "hours worked" if they miss a day at the office because, you know they were jail, for these protests?


I've been to these protests and I haven't gotten paid! Where do I apply? I'd like some pay. Seriously. I can even send them my receipts.

I am afraid that the protest will keep on going against Trump as big money is paying for the professional activist.

This is not regular protest, this is done to keep Trump from been respected as the rightful president in the nation.

Sadly as long as the silent majority doesn't fight back is going to keep on going.

Or a charity event that has been going on for 60 years at a place he owns. A vacation is more than 24 hours away.

The true story of Trump and Mar-a-Lago:

How Trump Fought Antisemitism and Racism in Palm Beach Two Decades Ago


The WSJ story that is linked focuses on the battles Trump faced as a new arrival to Palm Beach, including his new competition with the social clubs of the old order. The story, which quotes Abe Foxman, the longtime head of the Anti-Defamation League, says, in part, the following:

Mr. Trump also has resorted to the courts to secure his foothold here, and many residents wince at the attention his legal battles with the town have drawn — to the town in general, and to the admission practices at some of Palm Beach’s older clubs in particular.

…The culture clash began to approach a climax last fall, when Mr. Trump’s lawyer sent members of the town council a copy of the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a film that deals with upper-class racism. Mr. Trump then approached the town council about lifting the restrictions that had been placed on the club. He also asked some council members not to vote on the request because their membership in other clubs created a conflict of interest.

Last December, after the council refused to lift the restrictions, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans. The suit seeks $100 million in damages.




I like Trump, but am cynical enough to guess that he did it just to spite the town.


Still, I can see how that would be epic.

People were protesting against Obama for 8 years, including over 200 failed court cases.

But now Trump is president, and we have seen what a delicate snowflake he is protests should not be allowed?

It may be a matter of the "protests" simply getting more media coverage now vs past administrations.

Not on the scale we're seeing for Trump... nor was Obama's staff working against him and there weren't entire departments protesting him and circumventing him (EPA, etc)

The way he's been sliding over due process and the Constitution, we can expect more protests.
