I just realized this is a manual on how to get your opposing party elected. (addition at top of post)

For the past 4 years we have seen people committing one on one violence against total strangers, out of the blue, feeling suddenly motivated to commit either verbal or physical assault because the perpetrator decided they "had to" attack the stranger because the stranger had something that let them know they were a supporter of a different political party.

We have had groups get riled up all throughout history. Groups are well known for the mass psychosis that infects people and they do things they were never even consider doing in a one on one situation. So I'm not talking about groups. Like ANTIFA, or KKK, or White Supremacists, or Black Panthers or La Raza. Groups like these easily whip up frenzies and people in them become like walking time bombs.

No this is not what I am talking about. What I am talking about is a lone person walking down the street, they see a total stranger with a political bumper sticker, or t-shirt or other item that lets them know they are probably going to vote for either a Democrat or a Republican. The stranger may be buying coffee, or eating in McDonalds, or waiting in line somewhere. Then WHAM the lone person feels compelled to either verbally or physically assault the person who is on "the other team" politically. This has happened even to schoolchildren (teens) and people in their 80's. People have been hospitalized from this random one on one attack.

Many deny this is happening. But...... it is.

A New Hampshire man was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a polling site during the state’s first-in-the-nation primary earlier this week.


AND All it does is get the other political party elected.

WHY Because the people who attack for purely political motives are seen as dangerous and a symptom of underlying totalitarianism in their political party.

Not fair perhaps, but that is the message these attacks, which happen on average 3 times a week in the US for the past 3 years, is giving.

The message these attacks give is the party of the attacker wants people in my party "gone" "subdued" "oppressed".


I have been putting out this message to deaf ears who say "Yeah, but the other side, they ... their group ..." Again I say this is not about groups, but about individuals on a regular basis attacking strangers for the "crime" of voting for the "wrong" political party.

How sick is this? What kind of mental sickness does it take for this to spread and become no longer a sickness but a required response to a psychological trigger?

This brings home the message that that belonging to a political party or being politically active is dangerous and something average people do at their own risk of being attacked either verbally or physically.

www.foxnews.com...


A startling rash of threats and violent incidents targeting Republican voters in recent weeks is raising concerns about the increasingly toxic political climate, just as the 2020 presidential primaries are getting started. The incidents began earlier this month when a Florida man, Gregory Timm, 27, allegedly rammed his van into a Republican Party voter registration tent.


The incident below is quite mild, but just happened and once again only demonstrates that the party whose people all over the nation are engaging in this type of behavior are dangerous as a group. Groups together can be quite dangerous.

But this mass psychosis of dangerous individual behavior is more insidious because individuals all over the nation of every ethnic group, every gender, etc. are infected with this deep desire to attack people who simply vote differently than they do.

What will happen if these people whose hate is so uncontrolled that once they get control, will they behave like Stalin, Mao, Castro etc and kill everyone who was politically active for the "opposing" party? This is a relevant question to ask in this day and age.


www.foxnews.com...


U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, a third-term congresswoman from New York State who drew national attention for defending President Trump during impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill last year, has become the latest victim of public incivility against Republicans.



“It is truly sad that the radical Far-Left cannot see beyond their vicious hate,” she wrote. “My husband and I went grocery shopping this morning before district events and enjoyed chatting with constituents throughout the store. This vile anonymous note was left on our car.”

“Rot in Hell FASCIST PIG,” the hand-scrawled note said.


Other incidents this year involving incivility – or even violence – against conservatives and Republicans have included a vehicle smashing a GOP voter-registration table in Florida, an alleged assault of a 15-year-old Trump supporter in New Hampshire, the smashing of a College Republicans information table in California, an individual’s threat, caught on video, to “slash Republicans’ throats" in Arizona, an alleged assault of a retired police officer wearing a Trump-style hat and shirt in Tennessee and a suspect being sentenced to 90 days in jail for slapping and spitting on a Trump supporter in Florida.

...and before someone says I'm promoting political violence, just stop. I'm against political violence but I am ALL for self defense against those who think it's ok to attack someone for their beliefs.

Keep calm and Carry on.

I too am against political violence. Very against it.

It is my deepest desire that people copy what I wrote and send it to everyone they know who is engaging in this type of behavior that actually says, my political party is dangerous if you disagree with me. You will be sorry you ever even thought of having a bumper sticker for.... or a t-shirt for .... - why? Because we love and care for you - so shape up you pathetic worm.

But my pleas have fallen on deaf ears, whose response is always "they made us do it", we are really the compassionate, loving, caring political party.

Remember, actions speak far louder than words.

Remember when hippies handed out flowers to their political opponents and asked them to stop the Vietnam war.

That worked. Because they truly showed compassion, love and care.

Ummm...you were a psychologist...you know the answer...

Each expresses their innate character...they were shaped to exquisitely fill their niche...


Besides...hippies didn’t change the course of history...

optics did...

It wasn’t compassion...it was realism...in the face of hubris...


A calculated withdrawal and reassessment...hippies...?

Bah...hippies were a creation of the very hand they we’re attempting to bite...

This is what our 2nd amendment is for. If someone attacks you, you have the right to shoot them in self-defense. That being said, when I'm out and about I don't advertise my political affiliation. That's just asking for confrontation & vandalism, especially in leftist areas.

They are hoping for that.

The headline will be something like....

"Peaceful group of protesters violently killed by rabid Trump-supporting white nationalist who went on a shooting spree".

Who will probably end up being an 80 year old white guy with a MAGA hat who was bring beaten to death by a flock of Antifa types.

Isn't that a real issue in the US now.

People like you and me are afraid of progressives/liberals/Democrats/Leftists because we don't know if they will snap at the sign of a bumper sticker and beat the crap out of you. To me that speaks volumes about the direction of the party, that the leaders are not in any way shape or form trying to discourage this behavior, but rather ignore, which is a passive form of tolerance and acceptance.

It is terrifying that what Lumenari wrote is to accurate for words about what would happen in the media. Problem is, the political conservatives know it and so are so deeply underground out of fear of the left, that the left actually believes everyone believes as they do. Everyone does not, many many people know it is no longer safe to be around progressives/liberals/Democrats and give any indication whatsoever of what they believe politically. This is because conservatives are living in justified silent fear of the left.

The left thinks they have the upper hand because conservatives are fearful of speaking up.

The mainstream media thinks.this is not a problem because people are underground about their fear, distrust and actual terror of the left .

This is why the polls are so off. No one in their right mind would tell any stranger (even if they claim to be a pollster), how do we know they are really pollsters and not Democrats who are easily triggered, that they are voting for Trump. Any admission of being a Trump supporter to ANY stranger could easily result in assault and does at least 3 times per week on average in the US.

The compassionate left has become it's own worst enemy, since it has morphed into an easily triggered violent assault machine.

You wrote that the Democratic leadership is ignoring the issue.

They and the media are actually promoting it.

Because they know if you put enough pressure on, keep the base hating and push the right phrase, someone will eventually have to defend themselves with a handgun or weapon.

They WANT that and are doing everything they can do to make it happen.

If you can incite riots, make the President's approval rating slide and cost him voters, what does a few lives matter?

We are in a dangerous time in America.

We are sitting on a social powderkeg and the Democratic leadership is passing out matches, just hoping for the fuse to be lit.

Because they need to get back into control.

By Any Means Necessary.

I don't think the Democrats are as evil as you portray.

I do think they are hurting themselves because they say they are the party of compassion, justice and equality and then there is an epidemic of their supporters beating people for voting "wrong". Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words, and are the cornerstone of what an individual, group or political party really is. Not what other people say they are, but what their actions are. Not what they themselves claim they are, but their actual actions. Not what gossip and social media claim someone is, but their actions. Actions win out in the long run as people begin to see the disconnect between what is said about someone/a group, and what they do day in and day out.

I do think this is a real and present danger to Democracy itself.

Socialism does promote violence against people who don't agree with socialist policies. The more socialist a country is the more likely they are to jail or even kill dissidents. This is well documented. www.inquirer.com...

The question really is: Is the Democratic Party now a socialist party or a party that wants to institute socialism in the US? I think the answer is a clear yes that is the direction it is headed. That means they will not only tolerate violence against their own citizens who disagree with them, they will encourage it as they creep toward being a socialist party.


Right now, I don't think the Democratic Party thinks it is socialist. I certainly don't think the rank and file are tolerating violence in the name of the Party, I think they have their head in the sand for the most part.

Right now the rank and file always retort the one on one stranger attacks by Democrats as the same thing as when right leaning large weirdo groups get out of hand. Problem is, they are really really wrong. It is not the same and if the rank and file look the other way and rationalize it, then the party will become a full blown socialist party that crushes dissidents routinely.

easy for you to say that, as a local Arab in my country and a conservative, I had conversations with different expats from the US and other western countries, if you start a conversation with them and show support for Trump and his policies they go rouge and lose temper then go strait to the jugular, not a healthy conversation if you ask me.

You actually hit on the issue.

Too many Democrats think it is not only acceptable, but mandatory to lose their temper with anyone who is even thinking about voting for Trump.

That behavior turns off independents who want to have a rational conversation. The screaming, the irrational threatening behavior doesn't make anyone want to vote for a Democrat.

As a matter of fact, it frightens independents and people on the fence into a terrorized silence, but also it reinforces the idea that Democrats are dangerous and those feelings generalize to Democratic political candidates.

Which is not what the Democratic Party wants as it's defining characteristics, they claim to be champions of the underdog, champions of compassion, equality and justice. However, the recent actions of many many Democrats are making a farce of what the Democrats claim to be.

When this happens enough, people see through the mantra of "say it often enough and people will think it is true" i.e. we are the compassionate loving party. They instead see the actions of a violent, intolerant, and punitive Party that WILL punish and quash anyone who doesn't agree with even the smallest of their political ideas. This is NOT how most Democrats see their party, but by letting this routine violence go unchecked this is how independents and conservatives see them, as dangerous to democracy and worst of all to themselves and their families.

Not "Democrats".

The Democratic leadership.

And as someone who used to be a Democrat, I can guarantee that the Democratic leadership is EXACTLY as evil as I am portraying them.

They are not and have never been the party of compassion, justice and equality.

You are speaking of the party of the KKK, ffs.

No, they have sold the IDEA that they are compassionate and want equality and justice.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Now the average Democratic voter?

Ordinary caring loving people, for the most part.

They just need better representation.

The US need to get their act together. It's politics, politicians and hopelessly brainwashed people are starting to turn the US into a third world state. Getting attacked for being politically involved is a very serious and disturbing trend. You guys seriously need to sort this out very quickly.

By being politically active, I mean being involved in the process to the point where you have decided firmly whom you want to vote for. To the point where you have a bumper sticker, a yard sign (in my upper middle class neighborhood they have been ripped down and nasty threatening notes left by people who "hate" the person the sign represents), a ti-shirt or hat from a recent political rally. This is being active.

It is true if one only gets their news from CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, NBC, CBS, ABC you only get the viewpoint of those who want to transform the nation into socialist hedonism. Hollywood is also a mouthpiece for socialist hedonism. Hedonism you say? Yes, anything goes sexually and with drugs, the opiates of the masses. Socialism's ultimate goal is to control the masses and force them to behave in the way that the elite political class thinks is the best way for the masses to live to obtain a type of social utopia. Since the masses must have an outlet from the strict control over the rest of their lives, socialism encourages sexual libertarianism of all kinds and benefits from drugs that keep people sedated yet functioning and semi-productive. Semi-productive citizens is better than citizens that question what the elite political class decrees as the optimal way for the masses to live.

It is also true that FOX leans toward the viewpoint of individualism. That is people are best off when they can control their own lives and fates.

But you can't force the masses to look elsewhere, besides the elite political class will quash and go on a mission to destroy those sources of news. i.e. What we have seen Google, Facebook, Twitter do.

I will not put down anyone who is at least somewhat engaged with politics. To do that is to be arrogant, condescending, and part of the crowd that think they are automatically wiser, better, smarter than the "masses" (i.e. an elitist)

I think people who are willing to literally risk being beaten for expressing their political views are to be admired. At least they are not sheep of the elite political class.


BTW, the "you get your news" is snobbish and arrogant. You don't know where I get my news and for that rude and condescending statement I won't deign to retort except to say, shame on you for writing a statement full of arrogance, snobbery and intellectual elitism.

Well...I really don’t encounter problems because I advocate for Second Amendment Sanctuaries. Most people that would cause problems might think I am armed and not have any problem taking care of problems.

Then again it may have even more to do with my deadpanned, even keeled demeanor that really indicates that I might be armed and not have any problem taking care of problems.

I'm sensing projection levels over 9000.

Whats funny is I bet the vast majority of the people who attack Trump supporters aren't even registered to vote or even know who Bernie Sanders is. They're people who see in Trump and his supporters the same exact narcissistic and abusive behaviors that they dealt with as kids from adults who were supposed to care for them and this causes those scars to tear open and they lash our in anger. No it isn't ok or right for them to do that but the fact that you all revel in "triggering" people and taking pleasure in their pain which is due to childhood trauma that you all are recreating for them is seriously sadistic and twisted.
