    There's really not much to fear. While it's true that the violence is coming from the Left and targeting the Right, the laws are not on the side of those who are using violence and property damage to "take the country back."

    And, except at the ballot box, it's not legal to take it back anyway.

    To expand a bit on DGUtley's comment -- the Right isn't really afraid. Should some sort of civil war actually break out -- the Right is armed to a far greater extent than is the Left. Of course, a civil war isn't really going to happen, but, by and large, the Right is not a pacifist group of folks. They won't hesitate to defend their homes, businesses and families from attackers.

    What happened at Berkeley didn't do the Left any favors.

    And its all in response to Trump supporters coming out for Trump.
    Sheesh -- I hadn't yet heard about the other places, but that certainly drives home the point that the Left is out of control and is going to do substantial damage to the Democratic Party.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Talk to those in the military or in the police departments. They are vastly overwhelmingly in the camp of the Right. In a Civil War, or a violent insurrection, it wouldn't be a fair fight, but it'd be a fight to the end, I think. Protest is legal (and welcomed) but violence is not. It's all fun and games until the arms come out.

You trying to overthrow Trump are in the vast minority -- even of those that disagree with his agenda.

    It is astounding to me that the small gaggle of loyalists to Obama will drive this country into civil war, chaos, seditious usurpation of Trump's policies or worse. Remember, there's a long history in this country of the D's starting something and the R's perfecting it and taking it further. Heaven help us.

    Seeing as this violence erupted in CA, it makes me wonder if the troublemakers were of illegal immigrant status. I believe there was an issue in CA during a pre-election rally that was mostly illegals.

    I'm not a huge Trump fan, so you won't find me in a pro-Trump march, but those who want to gather to show their support deserve to do so without the low-brows showing up and creating chaos.

    Check out post 7.....and yes they are out of control. BO peep and the Demos need to be held responsible they are the ones talking all this BS about Resist and Total War on Trump. Problem is.....its not just Trump. Its those on the Right and The Repubs included with Trump. Even going after Demos who voted for them.

    As many all across the nation are saying.....they see a sinister sedition taking place. That's not good.....and its not local or regional.


    If the Demos aren't checked......its only going to get worse. They are already using bats, pipes, bottles etc. The next stage someone is going to break out a gun. Then all hell is going to break loose and the leftness is going to have a serious problem, staying alive.

    Exactly. The violent fringe of the Progressive Left isn't thinking this through. They'd quickly be outnumbered.

    I would ask what they're thinking, but it's obvious that they're not thinking.

    I'm not defending anything. I don't care for Trump's tweets.

    I'm pointing out the lunacy of what is happening with the violent fringe of the Progressive Left.

    C'mon really. Five weeks in and all you've done (the left) is daily attacks on everything from Melania's facial expression at the inauguration to Ivanka's dress at the speech. Daily attacks. Usually about nothing. All the while Obama holdovers have been undermining him from within. So, you have attacks from out and in. Most of them untrue.

    Yes, the immigration EO was clumsily rolled out. Agreed. He'll re-do it and we'll move on. Most of what the left has attacked is thin air. It's hard work to undo 8 years of Obama's handiwork. It will get more messy before it settles down, but Trump will get there and Obama's agenda will be a footnote.

    C'mon ..making things better is not standing in the streets screaming obscenities. The mentality of some looking for a fight.
