Because they can’t compete in the arena of ideas so they have to resort to violence to silence their opposition.

It’s milk shakes now....then fisticuffs and eventually weapons.

Yep. They can't win at the ballot box as evidenced by Trump, Brexit and now the election in Australia. So violence and resistance is their method.

The left IS VIOLENT.


The history of the political left is steeped in bloodshed and violence, so assaults on opposition candidates is business as usual.


Leftism is based in totalitarianism and thus embraces such tactics. Conservatives are shocked by this (but should not be), as they would never stoop to such lunacy.


Understand that the left are totalitarians who will justify ANYTHING to achieve their political goals, as they believe they are fighting evil, in which ANYTHING can be justified.

Isnt this kind of how America broke free from the English Monarchy though?


The colonists tried 'diplomatic' and other non-violent methods first...but in the end, it took a brutal violent overthrow to break free and become a free and separate nation!


Its kind of odd how this can be seen as patriotism on one side and extreme terrorism on the other....I guess it really just comes down to who wins at the end of the day, that determines whether something will go down in history as patriotic or a terrorist attack!

I can't wait until the Donald loses an election. Then we will see exactly how passive the right is (all indications are it's not, and the Donald incites them constantly).

I seem to remember people on CD saying they were conservative, and they have lots of guns.

The right is the party of "NO". No on a women's right to choose, no on health care, no on clean water, no on helping the middle class, that's socialism.

But big tax breaks for the wealthy are Ok. Helping those in true need? NO, but subsidies for farmers after Donald's trade war destroyed their markets overseas? That's Ok.

The traditional conservatives - who advocated for pay your way, balance the budget, small less intrusive government, preserve nature, had great ideas. The neo conservatives of today don't have any ideas relevant to the 21st century.

The Donald said recently he wanted 5 terms. He said he may not leave the White House if he loses the next election. He's a dictator wannabe. His people would give up the Constitution if that is what it took for his fantasy to come true.

Both teams are predicated upon violence. It's the underlining tenet of statism.

Because they are indecent and mentally ill people who are perpetually stuck in the adolescent stage of human development.

This is truly one of those disingenuous threads that doesn't have a shred of truth in it, but people debate it anyway.

I already said both teams are violent gangs.

Can you throw me a bone for that truism?

Their standard bearer Drumpf is a proven pathological liar who gave a platform to fellow sociopaths to do the same. And many are also just paid Russkie trolls and bots.
