Obvious setup is obvious.
The intent was to give all you Trumpets someone else to direct your vitriol and hatred at - in the name of "Lolz".
And you fell for it.

If this would show what a sorry excuse CNN is as a media outlet, what does it say about Fox that they kept sexual predators like O'Reilly and Ailes on staff until sponsors started pulling out?

So breitbart are still paying that guy to try and start fights with anyone they presume to be 'the left'.
I wish he would come to an anti-fascist/antifa whatever you want to call it march in my country and try that, incitement laws would get him happily married, in prison.

Imagine if Trump publicly threatened to throw someone down the stairs and destroy their life for calling him "Drumph".
Think Fredo Cuomo and CNN would be nonstop reporting on that?
You'd be a liar if you say "No".

So you threaten to kill people over saying something you don't like?
Are you serious?
You really need to take some anger management classes man.
Civilized people don't threaten violence when someone makes a comment they don't like.
There's no justification for it.
It seems ATS has become infested with gloating, arrogance and a desire to "kick the loser" by many Trump supporters - not all, but there are many. They are doing this to get a rise out of the rest of us, to incite more hatred and, quite frankly, for their own general amusement.
We must not respond to this any more. I am guilty of biting back, but after a while I realised that it's just making it worse - that we are playing into their agenda by responding. Please, I implore those who are the targets of this vitriol, ignore it totally. Don't respond, don't even give them the time of day.
When enough of them realise that they are literally talking to brick walls then they will go away - and leave ATS to the rest of us who wish only to have an intelligent and civil discussion about the events surrounding this election.
I know it's tough to ignore it, trust me I've been gritting my teeth for 2 days now but this needs to stop. Nothing we have said or done has lessened the vitriol and hatred and gloating, so perhaps we should try something new.
