    Yet Moochel obama says when they go low, we go high.
    Can somebody tell me when that has happened?

    Apparently we've got our own Brownshirts and it's condoned by the party. If they can only get their way they'll be civil.....sure they will!

    It is a situation that bears watching. Portland has right wing loons and left wing loons that seem to enjoy fighting each other.

    There is a "danger" in relying too much on the magnifying lens of news media coverage to form our view of the situation. As far as I know this is not occurring in say...Austin. If it does then I'll ramp up my concern a notch or two. Otherwise I try to stay out of the internet drama web. Probably the best thing any of us can do is try to promote good relations with neighbors and civil discourse with those who hold opposing views.....so yes, HRC's rant, Holden's rant etc. and those who support such vile rhetoric are major embarrassments.

    ....ok so it is happening in Austin if the media coverage is accurate and representative. Hopefully just in reaction to the SCOTUS appointment and it will die down.....We need to see laws enforced and justice upheld for assault cases. IF that's not happening we have a systemic problem.

    Saw one on the news yesterday where a pickup was torched in a parking lot in Portland, allegedly because it had Trump stickers on it. Now we have Eric Holder saying "When they go low, we kick them." Yeah, Eric "I sold guns to drug cartels" Himpton "I spied on journalists" Holder. He'd need an awfully big ladder just to reach up to "low". :censored:

    Results of this new 8,000 respondent survey, probably offers a much better picture of the state of current affairs than the blood-pressure raising videos of thugs attacking people at protests. The out of power Dem's and their pro "aggression" comments are way out of synch.

    Love your neighbors and be of good cheer; the core appears to be holding.

    @Dale00 , This is so true, most of America is making ends meet and living. This any means necessary that the politicians are doing right now needs to stop before the idiots following the ass hats blindly, do something catastrophically stupid!! The shooting in the ball park was getting to close.

    In all fairness it must be admitted that this stuff started long before Kavenagh, it started with the opposition to Trump justified by the allegations that all Trump supporters, and by extension all conservatives and republicans were racist homophobic misogynistic nazis.

    As for a systemic problem considering how much violence there's been without many arrest, the Eric Clanton Antifa ‘professor’ case and the apparent existence of stand down orders in Charlottesville and San Jose along with Portland seem to show there may well be some type of systemic problem.

    It certainly seems it's only accelerated since Trump's election to the point we're now at...

    This article makes one wonder why things about antifa and the radical left were kept under raps

    FBI, Homeland Security warn of more ‘antifa’ attacks

    Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.


    If they are domestic terrorists, why in the hell has not the federal gubberment got involved and shut this down?
