Doesn't it ever get old defending the President no matter what the subject even when he is obviously wrong (and he is sometimes) while invoking the buggabear of CNN?

It certainly gets old looking at it ... LOL.

Trump runs his mouth more than he should. You know that. I could probably hunt down a quote from you where you admitted it.

Even given negative press ... Trump is always his own worst enemy.

Ummm...I'm not really trying to defend the president through any of this...He really doesn't need any...

My interest is purely observational...that's why I defended the Trump blimp...because it's caricature...

That's also why I use such heavy sarcasm...because way too many folk have become caricatures themselves as a defense mechanism...

I'm not quite sure how else to break through beyond that the reality of the person inside...
To let them know in all honesty...look...I don't mean you any ill will...cripes...I'm just a lone voice on the internet in search of a little community...

You all...and I mean all...from every stripe or perspective...keep me in good humor...and I try to reciprocate of my part in turning frowns upside down... the end of the day negative obsession is hurtful to the psyche...there's a real concern that unfulfilled expectations and repeated ideological loss strips away that faux veneer...

That's why I mentioned such concepts as tolerance and how easily that false narrative was shed...and now we get to see the reality that lurked under smug superiority...

Frightful...revealing...and endlessly funny...

But mostly sad...I feel genuine sorrow for the loss of high ideal...I suppose in a way it's better to see the lofty rutting among the greater should be...

I shed a tear...

A trend of people not having their CC an exercising self defense on their own property?

Will happen soon if this keeps up.

Concealed carry permits are not required for me to defend myself on my property no matter where I live in the US but I feel for those in the countries where that isn't true.

So it's the medias fault, Trumps fault.

But not the low iq thugs fault.

Funny how that works.

It's not funny. AT all. There's nothing funny about rising violence and stupidity.

Do you think the "low IQ thugs" only exist on one ideological side?

That is a sad old argument that ran out of fuel a long time ago. Whataboutism doesn't change anything except redirect the thread off-topic.

The thug attitude is not limited to dems only. But it is the dem side of things that shows a far greater rate of incident. Riots in the streets over OJ, Rodney King, any of dozens of thugs shot while committing crimes in recent years, burning liquor stores and overturned squad cars during demonstrations. The list goes on and on. Yes, you can find examples of the right behaving similarly but no where near as often or to the same degree.

You can deny and obfuscate as much as you like but we all see it every time it happens. The only difference is the left always manage to make excuses for the behavior and implying the victim deserved it.

False equivalence and everyone knows it.

You don't speak for everyone.

Violence broke out a many Tea Party events in the 2010-2011 range. We can play The Link Game if you want.

No you can't play it as well , so go for it!

I will eat crow if you are right and you will if I am but I suspect you like crow pies.

There will come a time when even the most ardent leftists will be unable to downplay the growing violence and they'll either have to embrace it and will encourage it, or "walk away".

Looks like Gryph has a total of 2 so far but is a few furlongs to go to catch up with the fact there are waaaay more Leftist being caught being asshats over their DJT syndrome than any Tea Party rally violence you will ever find. Even in the MSM (read liberal/progressive) news we see that fact is coming to us daily. We do get our facts backed up by their favorite sources normally used to bash DJT. Yep even in the MSM progressive media who hate trumpsters, they report the cases when they could hide them all.

This will be a challenge for normal folks because front yard landscaping will now have to include a trigger alert for all the retards.

Landscaping = racist.

Where do you come up with this garbage? It's like you project your beliefs on to others and claim it's how they feel.

Tell us more about yourself bro...

There's a reason picket fences have pointed tops.
Looks like razor wire will be needed if you want to fly a flag safely.

There might be dramas with that, you see, a house with razor wire perimeter fencing and Trump flags will be seen as a Nazi internment / death camp by the low-informationers.

Sad, bigly.

Another self-protection...

Boynton Beach homeowner Jeff Good was just relaxing and enjoying the holiday when a car pulled up and a stranger demanded that he take the flag down and denounced the president.
Mr. Good refused and was punched right in the face by the thug. He then instinctively punched back but got his arm stuck in the car as the driver sped off, dragging the homeowner a short distance resulting in minor injuries.

Anyone else see a trend developing?

No, i don't see any trend developing.

A few years ago we were in the midst of a massive drought where I live... News stories were popping up everywhere of people being physically assaulted by random people out the front of their house, simply because their front garden looked too lush & green.

Point being... this type of crap happens all the time and probably has for the entire existence of civilization as we know it.

Its completely disingenuous to cherry pick these random altercations to vindicate your own political bias and claim some extremist upraising.

Ok... but this story isn't about a drought. It's about a man being assaulted over a Trump flag.

So , to have a little bit of fun and relive my youth when I brought life changing events into bullies' lives , do I need to buy my first MAGA hat and sign for my yard ?

I just ordered two Q hats while reading this thread. It's popular enough now, that there are some decent embroidered dad hats out there, sub-20 bucks.

do you honestly not understand that there is a movement underway to use violence against Trump supporters?

Sorry but if you dumb enough to get out a car and walk over and punch me for my lawn decor do not be surprised when I lay you out like a sack of potatoes and then call the cops to come remove your butt for assaulting me.

In the past, I would have responded to you like:

Do you honestly not understand that you are merely absorbing and promoting what the extremist media wants you to? Do you honestly believe that all the folks on "the left" had a super secret conference at the montly get together and decided that throwing drinks in kids faces and punching guys on their lawns was the way to RESIST Trump?

Stop being a mindless patsy for the media.

That's what I would have said.

Now, I will merely point out that you're part of the problem when you address someone in such a snide condescending manner while providing zero facts or productive commentary.

To answer your "question" there is no cohesive organized group to hurt or attack Trump supporters, but Trump supporters are being hurt and that is an unacceptable situation.

A highly charged and divisive political environment does currently exist in this country that is has been created by the media/entertainment industrial complex and there are people that are reacting to that in very poor and unacceptable ways such as we have seen with the kids having a drink thrown at them and the guy on his lawn.

We're not going to work our way back out of this by simple finger-pointing and chest-thumping.

There's nothing "whataboutist" in what I said, as I'm not diminishing that there are folks who are willing to act in violent unacceptable ways on "all" sides.

As you admit in your second paragraph.

Further, are you really so sure that the attacks "from the left" statistically outweigh the ones "from the right"? Because over just about any timeframe you want to consider, that's just not true.

I would argue that it doesn't matter to you that we all know that the vast majority of us CHOOSE not to act in immature ways to express our political differences. What matters to you is that you participate and promote the hand-wringing and fear-monging rhetoric that has been instigated by the extremist media.

No denial or obfuscation here bud. Take some responsibility for your own actions and stop automatically sucking up the media narrative provided for you, eh? And for godssake stop with the personal attacks on me. It's just dumb.

You made the claim that there was no violence at Tea Party rallies and were proven wrong.

That's news to me.

All I saw was a video from 2010. Which was eight years ago to DEFLECT from some snip hat punching a guy for a flag in support of the current prez.

Which wasn't on private property.

That he conflates his 2 old mild examples with riot police level stuff, should tell you all you need to know about the potential productiveness of discussion with him. He is reasonably smart. But he, like almost everyone, has a set of filters that he uses habitually to take in information, so as not to completely dismantle his identity level beliefs. It isn't a rational thing. It's a self preservation instinctual response.

So you are justifying the violence.



Do you live in Florida per chance? Get angry at a sign maybe?

He's not justifying the violence and YOU KNOW IT.

He's pointing to the real trend here and that is increasing violence from all sides!

You're only concerned about it when one of "your team" gets hurt???

Going to have to agree on this one. Justification for violence because of ones ideology is stupid. This needs to end NOW. Start the unification and end this ridiculous separation. CMON people you are smarter than this.

Well, I would vote we dump the MS13 ideology any way possible. They use violence, rape, torture and create wealth with the dangerous drugs like Heroin. There is one ideology that needs a gun shot wound to the heart.

Can anyone explain how you get punched in the face on your own property by someone in a car?

I can't quite position the face to fist arrangement in my mind.

Also would be curious to know what vile things were said by the driver in question that would require a face to fist altercation.

I know when I am minding my own business I try and avoid ranting drivers parked at my doorstep.

Parked where and have you heard of Antifa yet?
