    Cmon FK.....the illiberal is just making excuses. As usual.....someone else is to blame. They don't want to take responsibility for the loss they suffered. Nor do they want to act Right.


    Trumps Tweets don't have a damn thing to do with it. Bottomline.....they know BO peeps legacy is being stripped away. That all their issues are being thrown in the garbage. That they will be nothing more than fodder and made into the sheep they were created as.

    I notice a few things about the posts and the linked articles. First, it it's notable that the turnout is so low they felt the need to count it even if only 30 people showed up, and the highest turnout mentioned was 300. That's pretty damn weak, lackluster one even might say. Second not one of the linked articles mentioned which side started the violence or which side the arrestees were from. Fairly significant omission I would say, wouldn't you?

    America’s Second Civil War......by Dennis Prager.



    It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War.


    In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I once there was World War II, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War.


    This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs in another critically important way: It has thus far been largely nonviolent. But given increasing left-wing violence, such as riots, the taking over of college presidents’ offices and the illegal occupation of state capitols, nonviolence is not guaranteed to be a permanent characteristic of the Second Civil War.


    Liberalism — which was anti-left, pro-American and deeply committed to the Judeo-Christian foundations of America; and which regarded the melting pot as the American ideal, fought for free speech for its opponents, regarded Western civilization as the greatest moral and artistic human achievement and viewed the celebration of racial identity as racism — is now affirmed almost exclusively on the right and among a handful of people who don’t call themselves conservative.


    The left, however, is opposed to every one of those core principles of liberalism.



    Like the left in every other country, the left in America essentially sees America as a racist, xenophobic, colonialist, imperialist, warmongering, money-worshipping, moronically religious nation.


    Just as in Western Europe, the left in America seeks to erase America’s Judeo-Christian foundations. The melting pot is regarded as nothing more than an anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-Hispanic meme. The left suppresses free speech wherever possible for those who oppose it, labeling all non-left speech “hate speech.” To cite only one example, if you think Shakespeare is the greatest playwright or Bach is the greatest composer, you are a proponent of dead white European males and therefore racist.


    Without any important value held in common, how can there be unity between left and non-left? Obviously, there cannot.
    There are those on both the left and right who call for American unity. But these calls are either naive or disingenuous. Unity was possible between the right and liberals, but not between the right and the left.


    There will be unity only when the left vanquishes the right or the right vanquishes the left. Using the First Civil War analogy, American unity was achieved only after the South was vanquished and slavery was abolished......snip~

    I'd also like to note that it wasn't the left who spent the last 8 years whipping up hate and discord to the frenzied pitch you see today.

    Your conservative masters stirred up the whirlwind, now they've left you to ride it.

    Good luck.

    What a crock of $#@!.....but then you do have trouble discerning reality. Again, show me a link where the Repubs declared Total War on your President and the Demos.

    As usual you are quite a bit light with the facts dept. As well as the truth.

    A few protests is not "violently tearing apart the country".

    Also, none of the links say who started the violence.

    Note the difference.....to make BO peep a one term President. Challenge them on every single bill on every single campaign.


    Now......here is your Teams Words. Resist, Oppose.....Its Total War on Trump.


    Now can you actually figure out the difference? Do you have the brain capacity to note what the Repubs said. Is not.....declaring Total War.


    Especially after saying its their job to make BO peep a one Term President. Evidently they understood.....he would be president for at least one term.

    Got that now......take it in deep and filter that thru.
