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.



Most of these "Liberals" are more akin to communists than liberals anyways.

That's not it. A lot of these people being violent and disruptive at Trump rallies really are quite the anarchists.

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.


Why do you need two threads on what is basically the same topic?

Yep

I love this country, historically this is nothing new. Business as usual. I'm glad to have lived long enough to see the big picture. It's what makes us great, we wrestle with each other, air our dirty laundry, then join hands and kick the shit out of someone who thinks they can mess with us. Then we go back to arguing. Americans are like a large family that likes to fight all day, but sit down at the table and joke while it's dinner time. We revel in conflict, why do you think we're always fighting and arguing? We like to win! Regardless of politics, games, sports or discourse.

You have seemed to trigger quite a few of our liberal forumites who have a rather tenuous relationship with reality, if the replies to this comment have been any indicator.

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.

I'm not so sure. Trump is basically a protest candidate, same with Sanders. If the Democrats' nomination process was as democratic as the Republicans', Sanders would be the presumptive Democratic candidate.

Voters are sick of the status quo, and I don't think it's bad at all to want to see the status quo shook up a little.

I'd say the difference is that Trump appeals more to people who just want to watch the stagnant political world burn.

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.


The truth of the matter is way deeper and is unfortunately far worse. People are frustrated with their political elites who have failed to do their job representing the American people and have turned to candidates who promise a (what they believe to be a) real change. In the case of the Republicans, they are going for Donald Trump, in their case of the democrats, they tried going for Bernie Sanders.


TLRD: the current political elites have failed and so increasing numbers of people are looking to radical popularists.

Tenuous relationship with reality would be not even realizing the republican party did a whole lot of what she just blamed Obama for. Just sayin'.

Yeah, that is what people say "oh they like Trump because he is different than the status quo". Ok, I can get wanting someone different than the status quo, but you don't go for just anyone who isn't status quo and that is how I feel about republican voters and Trump. They went rushing to the first guy that was not status quo; good or bad, and bad he is.

Well, I think that is the thing, I think a lot of Americans are afraid Trump would be a 'Bonaparte'.

Not saying he would be. Most likely, if he became president...it wouldn't go well, it'd further weaken relations with our allies, lots of people would be constantly flipping out over stupid b.s. he spews, and...he would most likely be a one term president and may even end up getting impeached over something before his first term is over. It probably wouldn't be that bad. We can only hope. I just fear him becoming president because while I see it as what would surely be a 'bad' presidency, I am worried it could indeed end up being a 'disastrous' presidency.
