Sigh HuffingtonPost writer calling for violence against trump.
Posted 6/7/16
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jesse-benn/sorry-liberals-a-violent-_b_10316186.html

Last, I want to briefly note the problematic nature of people with privilege condemning violent resistance to Trump as an absolute moral failing, or denying its logic. Whether you would personally engage in violent conduct matters little to your ability to understand where it comes from. Some people have the privilege to consider the implications of Trump’s rise in the abstract and negotiate which means are necessary. That’s not true for everyone. And when those who hold that privilege dismiss the potential validity or logic of violent resistance, it’s effectively an effort to dictate the rules under which oppressed peoples respond to existential threats, and to silence forms of resistance disagreeable to privileged sensibilities. Don’t be that liberal.



Oh yes, let's just go and kill people and harm them, I guess might makes right after all.

I can't get past the unspoken truth that so much of the polarization and class warfare that exists today lies right at the feet of President Obama. He divided the country for his own political gain and pitted one group against another. Does anyone even remember how Obama used words such as 'get in the faces of our enemy (that would be non-Obama voters)', 'punish them' and 'if they bring a knife we bring a gun'? Does the media even care to remind people of these provocations?

A big part of the problem really is Trump himself. Let's put it this way, if the person who was to be the nominee was Jeb, or Rubio, or Kasich, would things be like this? The answer is no. Trump is really stirring things up and bringing out the worst in people. He is rallying a lot of people with extreme views (many of his supporters) and then certain liberals, extreme in their own ways, are freaking out over the rise of Trump.

Trump shouldn't even be the nominee. Republican voters failed. The guy is lousy. Awful. There should be a legit candidate as the nominee, not Trump.

Don't blame Obama. Not fully, at least. The GOP did a lot to polarize the country. I'm fine if you wanna blame Obama, just, please, acknowledge the GOP did a lot to create the rift in America...


And this...


He divided the country for his own political gain and pitted one group against another



Wow...if you feel that way about him, that's fine, but...the GOP did this very thing. They divided the country for the sake of their party. They are pitting themselves against the opposition.

I'm just saying, if you feel a lot of the blame should be on the democrats and Obama, I'm fine with that. My point is that both parties have caused this and I'm kinda upset when people blame Obama and the democrats and don't even realize the GOP did the very same things, and not just a little...

Accepting violence as part of the political process is the best way to wreck a democracy.

Clearly the huffpo writer has no idea what the word "liberal" means, since he doesn't respect the idea of people he doesn't agree with being allowed to peaceably assemble.

You mean how Obama like to talk about everyone needing to be equal and discard race, religion, gender, sexual preference, etc and be accepting of everyone. Then turns around and tells all the Blacks, to embrace their heritage and culture, to hold on to what makes them Black and be proud of that. So on one side he's telling the majority to give up what makes them different and be a unified group, and on the other telling his group to fight to stay what they are and not give up their difference.

Yeah he's partially responsible for this situation. I also don't think he should be allowed to give his viewpoints, stance or support to a candidate running for president, because it will obviously be biased to who will best serve his current goals and where he wants the country to go.

You don't get to use the phrase "well thought out" after that partisan fever dream ;p

"I reject your reality and insert my own" is a joke, not a challenge.

"Sorry, Liberals: "
Excuse me, I wasn't aware there were any liberals rushing to Trump's defense...Has anyone heard any? Maybe I haven't been keeping up with the news.

And when Glenn Beck had one ultra-con author on the show who was writing his own imaginary plot about who the loose-cannon "patriot" would be that takes Trump out for our country's own good, even that creeped out Beck and the guest was kicked off the show.
When you can't even hold onto the ultra-rightwing crazies anymore...

Yeah, it's obviously Obama's fault so many on the right has attacked him for doing things virtually every other PotUS has done, for having the audacity of having a non-white/christian parent, for making it a little easier to get health insurance. I mean Obama was the one that publicly said congress should block virtually every bill he put forward, right? Was that him? WHo was it that insisted that a trip to India cost $200M a day?

ERR wrong. He is nominee not because it was a mistake but because he represents exactly what many lousy Americans think like.

Well, I was basically saying the same thing. It is just so disappointing. Like I said, they failed. I honestly expected better from them and months ago was thinking someone like Jeb or Kasich would make it to the general election.

That Trump is their candidate of choice (in general) from the good number of candidates they had to choose from reflects very poorly on the republican voting base.
