Poor poor conservatives! They never take things out of context and then blow it way out of proportion to play the victim!
Poor poor conservatives! Will someone think of the conservatives!!!
That includes even left-wing politician who have advocated for violence. Including Hillary, Waters, Holder, etc, etc. Even the high level politicans in your party have embraced calls for violence against people who lean to the right...
Not only are you completely wrong, but you don't even state what the crazy in the left have been doing is wrong... Instead you made a false argument trying to claim "the right did the same thing" when we didn't...
gee, read through the posts so far, and not one reference to any of these groups, antifa, white nationalist, blm, proud boys, kkk, who ever as being the "angry mobs" that have been the main talking point of the president and the republicans...
making them out to be oh so dangerous!!! these groups gather together, march, beat the crap out of each other and anyone else who might get in their way, burn and destroy, run people over with their cars, shoot their guns into crowds of people, they make it clear that they have no faith in the laws governing our nation of our ability to enforce them and really seem more intent on overthrowing that governing body and replacing it with a self governing mob ruling through violence.... better known as ANARCHISTS!!! but no, they aren't the ones being portrayed as too dangerous.
it's those groups who are, through CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, protests, who are trying to reach out to convey their message to their lawmakers, who by the way, some of them have become quite good at being mia unless you happen to have a few million or so to throw into their laps, who might finally find you in a restaurant, or in the halls of congress, the might pound on the doors of the supreme court or sit in the lap of lady justice trying to get the attention of those who are supposed to be representing them... and ya, they are a tad bit angry!! they got tired of trying to talk to the cardboard cutout of their representatives image in those fake town hall meetings. they know that writing you letters is really just a fools errand, they can tell by the form letters they get back that is so irrelevant to what they have sent to them!
ya, they are the most dangerous ones, because they are demanding accountability, representation, and they want their voices heard. they are working within this system, trying to change it according the the laws and traditions that have been used since before the inception of this nation.

Here's the thing. People can't have it both ways. You can't have Conservatives complaining that the Democrats don't denounce violence from their extremes while at the same time the President of the United States is praising a Senator for body slamming a reporter.
You also can't have Democrats complaining about the Proud Boys while saying stupid crap like Pelosi just did.
None of this makes sense anymore, both sides think they are morally superior when in fact they are both out of their minds.
