The progressives seem to be conditioning a new train of thought. They are using their star power now. lol. With the frequency at which celebrities have been making death threats to the President, it would seem they think it is okay.

To send a message to wish death on another countryman. Do we really want that sort of thing to become normal, just because we disagree with someone politically? There has to be some type of named mental disorder to support or even be an apologist for that sort of thing.

The conditioning to make that train of thought normal needs to be addressed on a national level.

What do you guys think?

Should it be okay to send messages, like that, to the President? Or should messages like that be a signal that some people might need intensive mental therapy because that is not okay?

The Secret Service should be alerted to each and every threat and punish those involved.

I'm ok with it.

I'd also suggest intensive mental therapy for those who see death threats where there are none.

What exactly does 'progressive' mean, and where did the term come from?
I mean in Canada, they've had the 'Progressive Conservatives' in the past and they were a party that leaned more to the right.

I hate Obama and what he believes and stands for, add ol Mad Max Waters to that. But wishing violence or death?? It's sicK to think that way about another human being. But leftist thinkers are a bit mental!

I agree that such comments are not only unproductive but dangerous. To say such things in a foreign nation somehow strikes me as even more treasonous. However, to believe such nonsense is limited to one party or one side of the spectrum is claptrap.

Honestly I think the rabid SJWs screaming raaaacist and sexist at everything they disagree with, celebs threats and wishes that the President gets murdered, BLM protests that turn into riots, are actually a ploy to discredit the Progressive movement

My friend who is a Democrat brought up Johnny Depp today and how he had made a joke about Trump getting assassinated. He said he thought Johnny Depp should know better. I am a Democrat as well, and I agree with him.

Then there was the lady, Kathy Griffin, who used a severed head of Trump on her show. There was a lot of backlash from Democrats about that. My friends and I didn't think it was appropriate.

So I think you are misleading people about what Democrats think about this issue.

Freedom of Speech and all that jazz. I didn't see you whining about this when Obama was the daily ire of the right's constant slanders and wish fulfillment dreaming.

Difference between Ol Fashioned True Blue Democrats and Progressive Liberals that are merely using the name to promote violence and hatred.

Your okay with telling people they should die, or you wan them dead? Good to know.




I'd also suggest intensive mental therapy for those who see death threats where there are none.


Holding up a fake severed head that looks like the President. Purely innocent in your mind.

One even used the word assassination, which literally means to kill. Innocent in you mind.

The latest one says Yer Dead, Bury Yourself. Again innocent to you.

I do agree that intensive mental therapy should be given to people who see death threats where there are none, but also to those who approve of death threats when they exists.

You may be right, but until that can be proven they are absolutely discrediting the progressive view.

I did not say Democrats. I said Progressives. There are a lot of Democrats that disagree with that branch of the Democratic Party, but the fact still remains that it is part of the Democratic Party.

I agree with freedom of speech. I also agree with consequences for that speech.

You didn't see me on during the Obama administration, because I was not a citizen of ATS then, so there is that. As far as the "whining" you mention, didn't you just use the term freedom of speech? I love how some people use it to justify the hate going on, but then question what someone else says. lol. That is why the left are eating their own. They are very confused right now.

That may be true, but the Democrats are doing very little to stop the progressives. I think the progressives have taken over that party.

I understand that sometimes people get overly excited and say stuff.

Innocent? No, bit also not death threats.

The last one, the one that got your undies in enough of a knot to make a thread, was not even violent. It was like saying "stick a fork in him, he's done".

What's the problem? Your whining is covered by the First Amendment too. I never said it wasn't or anything.
