I'm talking about assaulting them for the reason that they are Trump supporters and for no other reason. Can we all pretty much agree, regardless of how you feel about Trump, that it's really, really, not ok?

Everybody is going to vote that it's not OK, but what will also happen is that there will be those on the Left who will blame Trump for any attacks that happen...

Not OK. Unfortunately many Liberals consider disagreement a moral crime. In USSR, Anti Communist Propaganda was a crime.

no violence should ever be directed at the government..... unless its a democrat then we might need "2nd amendment remedies"

"Directed at the government"? I didn't ask that question at all, unless Trump supporters are the government. Not sure how you got that from my question.

you get my point, there is no end to the amount of times we hear about the right wing needing their guns for some imaginary revolution, but as soon as someone else throws a tomato at them they turn into ghandi and start this phony plea of non violence

tell gabriel gifford killers that, or better yet tell cliven bundy

I really have no idea what you're talking about. Shoot, I didn't even know Gabriel Gifford had been killed.

The USSR was extremely conservative.

oh thats right she was shot in the head but lived and the 9 year old died, i forgot only 6 of the 19 people he shot died, but I didn't hear a peep about nonviolence then,and more recently I didnt hear any condemnations of violence at the oregon wildlife refuge either, but I guarantee we will hear about the blonde christian conservative lady getting hit with tomatoes for the next month atleast

Nope- as we have seen Trump supporters wailing on demonstrators. Wrong is wrong- why bring political lean into it.

Are you justifying the violence directed toward Trump supporters? You sure seem to be. To me, that makes you no different than them.

It shouldn't make a difference but it sometimes sadly does. Heck you, yourself, apparently could not condemn the violence against Trump supporters without first sorta justifying it by saying they probably did it first. You totally just proved his point, actually.

Sooo, we'll put you down as an "OK". Glad we got that out of the way. I was worried about that, considering you didn't vote. Now we know why.

I was not justifying it- stating the facts. Raise the tempo of hate and attack minorities, expect people to respond. Do i agree they should, no. It just provides more fodder for Trump and his acolytes.
I was responding to a post where it was implied that the left would justify this.

im just amazed that a group thats willing to bomb countries they cant even point out on the map, are trying too preach non-violence, essentially your only argument can be "do as I say, not as I do" like most right wingers your a hypocrite

Incredibly dumb question. Designed, I think, for trolling purposes.

The hypocrisy is amazing. All of these thugs protesting how bad Trump would be for America - by being thugs. They are far worse than the Trump people. And, if most of them are so sure he couldn't be elected, then what's the point of protesting at all? Why not let Trump go quietly to the history bin while Hillary is president? And Hillary says all of these thugs are actually Trump's fault! What happened to that liberal belief in the first amendment, or doesn't that apply to those who you feel are bigots? Isn't that why the Ku Klux Klan is allowed to exist, because this is America and they have that right?

In some ways. I came to USA at age 13.

From the USSR? Did you know what a good move that was or do those things not matter enough at 13?
And could you skate? If so, you should have come to Canada.
