Political affiliation will become another protected group, and we will lose a little more of our 1st amendment rights. Because millenials are freaking idiots and were never taught how to act.


really?.....you elected trump to office and you're blaming millenials for acting badly?....lol


I don't think BFFT voted for Trump, but by the divisive nature of politics, you've immediately placed him in a corner to defend something he isn't.

I'm not sure that what we've seen so far is any different than what we've seen before, honestly. If you remember 2010-2014 there was violence and some pretty hefty rhetoric at that point too.

And of course, most of decade from 1965-75 ...

I don't think we need to point fingers, I think we need to find ways not to, in fact. I don't think pointing fingers has ever solved a problem, from kindergarten to high government.

And Constitution IS key. We have to make sure it is obeyed, but we have to do so peacefully.

The government has a contingency plan for every situation, except peace... and peaceful protest. The only way to get anything done is to uphold the Constitution, through peaceful protest.

A shred of violence and we're on their terms.


I will politely disagree. Everyone seems to be so pampered and taught that anything that is said to them that might hurt their feelings is WRONG, it is time for some tough love! How can you solve a problem, find a solution when you have to walk on egg shells so as not to offend someone?


Step by step. I really don't know, I'm no Gandhi, but I see things going the bad way again, for the second time in my life and I still don't know how to stop it.

I know I can do my part and tell the story of how it went the last time and maybe some will listen. We're all on our own journey, I just hope we end up listening more to each other than we do the government, any government, or the media.

Take care, thanks for the chat.


I am with you. This trend frightens me.

People aren't even trying anymore. If they aren't getting their way, they're resorting to force through bullying and intimidation, and once you've gone there, it's only a matter of time before there is real violence.

I don't know what they're thinking, but honestly, I really suspect they're not, only feeling.


Me too, ketsuko, scares me a lot.

I remember when it started and when the people turned on each other, and one night in particular after the first snipers and the killings, as the media was reporting on it on TV and showing these people be carried after they were shot by snipers, in their own city, where they had coffee on the street that morning...

...and I remember turning and watching my dad, who is a strong man, crying like a kid because of this horror and because he couldn't believe this was happening in our country. And it broke my heart.

And I still didn't get the pain that he felt then, the absolute disbelief over what was happening... for all these three decades, until now that I am grown up and I see it starting again.

“Classical liberal principles” - critical thinking, analyzation, rational thought.

Well thought-out. Dave Rubin is a an interesting figure to mention. Gay white male, use to be liberal, now moved to the center. Drives the left to outrage when he starts making sense and talking like a normal human being. I’m game. Classic liberal is about where i’ve always been. Now I am told that is way too right of normal. Nope. Goal posts have just been moved so damn far, no one knows what they ought to think anymore. Rugged individual indeed. Lol

We will see. I'm seeing a burgeoning movement to deescalate tensions as well.

Where do you see this? I see a Congresswoman ramping up instigating rhetoric..




History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” she yelled, whipping up the crowd.

“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” she warned.

“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants,” she continued as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,'” she continued.

I always get a good laugh when progressives try to bring God into the picture when nearly every atheist leans left.

So this type of harassment has happened 3 times in less than 1 week, to three conservative women. combine that with Mad Maxine putting it out over the airways of MSNBC, that not only is this type of behavior ok, but she also encouraged more of it and we have a very disturbing trend starting here.

Yep, Waters is a nut and probably crossing legal lines.

She is one of 300 plus million Americans.

Unless you give people like that power and attention, they are totally powerless.

Do you think it will help for the rest of us to propagate their message for them?

I don't. In my opinion, Waters is attempting to use her position to instigate riots and gang behavior, if not terrorism.

Implying that she represents "all Democrats" or "all liberals" is given her power she doesn't have; if anything, we need to remind people that she is a cartoon.

The problem is people DO give her power, they agree with her.
We may not always agree but I always respect your opinion, we need more Americans like you.

After something like this, there is always that movement to deescalate mainly because it is realized that there is a notch too far on the boil. No one wants the frog to jump out of the pan, you see, but then, the next incident to come along, and there always is one, goes a whole decibel level further as if no one actually learned anything.

People DO give her power. She is an elected official and has been for a long, long time. And it's not she's merely a local official, either. She is an elected official at the *national* level. So somewhere, there are a large number of our fellow Americans who feel like her brand of crazy represents them.

When asked whether Mister Rogers would have approached the situation the same way the activists did, one of the protesters said, "I'm not Mister Rogers."


From the source in the OP...this kinda says it all doesn't it? Fred Rogers would have never advocated such an adversarial tone, regardless of the situation.

Well, to be honest, I'm not Mr. Rogers, either.

I wouldn't do what these idiots did, obviously...at least I hope it's obvious. But, I'm not Fred Rogers, either. I am, however, a grown up capable of being civil, even to those with whom I disagree.

Ah, but what you're seeing here is, not someone who cares deeply about the "issue". What you're seeing here is someone who is thinking along the lines of riding this into the White House. At least, that's how it appears to me. She's already visited New Hampshire to test the waters (oh, bad seagull, bad...no more puns), so to speak.

So... There's that little aspect of it.

That's always been the case, though.

People following a leader because, "They must be right." It's easier than thinking for ones own self.
