Its a bell curve. 80% of the population could give a rat's arse.

The 10% on the extreme left or extreme right cause most the problems that the rest of us have to listen to day after day.

Since controversial BS sells, guess who gets most of the attention?


You're saying that both parties commit violent acts against the other, but the liberal acts get the media attention?

Your theory is, Social media is fuel for their declining morals, which makes violence easier to perpetrate?

Because delusional behaviour is too strong for logic.

How this is even contemplated as an authentic observation is mental.

No one can keep count of “who does what, more often”...
It’s bad enough people try to rationalise such nonsense to themselves...

To publicly try to microscope on just one group/segment/ideology as “the worst” is literally as partisan hackish as it can get.

Please change the title if possible to make a distinction between being a Democrat and being a Progressive Liberal calling themselves Democrats because no other Party would have them.

Why Has The Democratic Party Allowed So Many Violent and UnCivil Progressives into a once Honorable Party

Add words such as uncouth , immoral , disrespectful , hades the dictionary is full of words to describe Liberals.(none are good)


I'll see what I can manage. Only so many characters can fit in the Title ya know.

Thanks for the thought , at least.
I have been a Progressive Liberal . I KNOW what that meant then , versus what it means now. Saw the change a-coming
Then I became True Blue
Now , I guess I just play the field...

Yet when you look at incidents over the past 2 years, the vast majority have been committed by DEMOCRATS against REPUBLICANS.




i dont know one way or the other but why we only looking at 2 years?

why not look at the past 25 or 50 years?



If you can find more statistics, by all means, please share them. Like I said in the O.P., the information is hard to come by.


not really a statistic but i dont care to spend more than a few seconds looking

In the real world, since the end of the Vietnam era, the overwhelming majority of serious political violence—not counting vandalism or punches thrown at protests, but violence with lethal intent—has come from the fringes of the right. Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project says that “if you go back to the 1960s, you see all kinds of left-wing terrorism, but since then it’s been exceedingly rare.”



Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, told NPR that “when you look at murders committed by domestic extremists in the United States of all types, right-wing extremists are responsible for about 74 percent of those murders.



A 2015 survey of law-enforcement agencies conducted by the Police Executive Research Forum and the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security found that the police rate antigovernment extremists as a greater threat than reactionary Islamists. The authors wrote that “right-wing violence appears consistently greater than violence by Muslim extremists in the United States since 9/11, according to multiple definitions in multiple datasets.”

Actually, Progressivism can easily be defined.

It is the theory that a governmental system that can be put into place where a benevolent ruling class of technocrats can rule over it's citizens, taking care of their needs from cradle to grave.

Hegel wrote the theory up in the 1800's.


George Wilhelm Hegel, the German philosopher, developed a format for applying ‘dialectics’ to almost everything in society, especially in the political arena. Hegel’s dialectic philosophy placed “ reason above facts and revelation in seeking truth and becomes a forum for ‘moving people away from absolute truth or values toward a group consensus in order to accomplish ‘group goals.’


This theory spawned many things, from Marxism to Communism to Socialism.

It wasn't called Progressivism until FDR coined the term "Progressive."

However, in the end it is the same thing, just different means of achieving the same goal.

A Utopia where everyone does what they can do, according to their means. With a government to rule over them all.

Which, if you take out the human nature factor, seems like an awesome idea.

Add actual people to it however and the ideal goes south rather quickly.

As proven historically by the millions upon millions upon millions that have died since Hegel put his theory on paper by governments trying to achieve it.

And now it is basically the Democratic party platform. Look at what I bolded. There is the answer to why the liberal culture is what it is.

Currently, yes because of who is president. When it was Obama in office, the birthers got coverage...for example.

It swings back and forth.

I have no data on how often that is happening however, I would agree that Dems bad behaviors get a lot of press.

Yes to a degree. The hate is everywhere. Most (not all) people have their nose stuck in a phone or computer the majority of the day unless they are at work - and probably at work too if we are being honest. If you are someone who deals with reality in emotions then you are ripe for the picking. I think peer pressure has a lot to do with it also. People want to be accepted and that is human nature. Even as I mentioned earlier some are just looking to get their 15 min of fame.

Here's my personal opinion because I am not going digging for data to back it up:

The Democrats thought they had the presidency in the bag so much that when they lost, even the media couldn't believe it. The media hype and exit polls were so tilted toward Hillary it was hard not to think that Trump's chances were slim.

That alone should tell you a lot about the media and the Democratic party.

Democrats are mad. I think the basis for the anger is the loss. That anger gets projected on to ANY thing that Trump or the Republican party does. Trump plays the media and the Dems like a harp when he tweets. They latch on to all of it. Whether its intentional or not on his part, it is a brilliant ploy. The more outrageous his tweets or his actions, the more they froth at the mouth.

......and it gets even better.......Time magazine played right into by using a picture of a girl that wasn't even involved in the border separations. They made it even EASIER for people to buy into the Media being a pack of liars.....Wow that was ignorant of them.

.....the whole Sanders Restaurant incident....wow....yet another brilliant act of stupidity that emboldens Trump and his supporters more....

...again, its just my opinion.

Southern Poverty Law Center ... there is a problem with your research. Hate groups generate suspect research.

Their behavior was formed early in life.. And see Uncle Sam as their surrogate mommy/daddy? OK. Then why the violence?

Desperation.
They know their emotional arguments can only go so far.
Once facts enter the picture they generally have nothing to stand on.
Violence is the last gasp of any ideology, it will make or break it.
First reply, and I agree 100%

That's a well thought-out answer. Even though both sides have suffered disappointments, the "Right" is better equipped mentally to cope with them, and take proactive action to turn things around. Then the "Left" needs new leadership.
