"Never before have major national institutions turned so virulently against a sitting president and dedicated themselves to the destruction of his administration."
Never before have we had sitting president of whom every living president has declared unfit to hold office. These aren't just left wing dolts marching with pink hats.

Todd Juvinall

Oh yes they are. You libtards are simply mean spirited and wrong. We like what we see. America is on its way back after 8 years of failure by Obama and the democrats. Get used to it.

Don Bessee

The 'jon' @ 1222 is seriously trying to use the Bushes as a support for his argument and then tosses in the peanut farmer? Lest all take a moment and think back to what they have said about the Bushes. Talk about a massive case of situational ethics!

Hey the 'jon', why don't you post a picture of you in your pink pussy hat?

"These aren't just left wing dolts marching with pink hats." That's right, they are communist dolts, socialist dolts, snowflake dolts, blm dolts, dem looser dolts, mom's basement dwelling dolts as well as left wing dolts. ;-)

Nobody cares what former presidents say.....


He was elected......learn to live with it.

George Rebane

Wasn't aware of that constitutional codicil about having your administration destroyed if all living former presidents don't like the sitting president. Learn something new every day.

What's there to like about our Liar in Chief George. He's a narcissist, serial liar, sexist egomaniac.

He isn't Hillary Clinton and he upsets leftys a great deal.


Really.......what more could you want in a president in this day and age?

George Rebane

I suppose there's a chance that our leftwingers will address the post's topic sooner or later. My money is on later.

You can add institutionalized butthurt. The more things get better, the redder that Leftist Baboon butt gets. It makes the wildest BS to be said. For instance, " We women give birth to 50% of the population." Then from Berkeley, " we can't even go to forests because of color"."(find my last post from last light to read that loonacy)

re: GR @ 2:53 They never will. This has evolved from any kind of argument about policy and has morphed into a sort of church movement. I expect that a close examination of anti-Trump street warriors would show similar physiological changes as you might see in any religious frenzy. People can definitely be crazy about seemingly trivial matters as Patriarch Nikon found out.

This business of going to civil war over an attempt to control national borders is probably a first in the history of the world, but aside from Trump bragging about a billionaire's ability to grope willing women and insulting his political rivals (and a subset of Mexican boundary-crossers), it's about all I can detect as a philosophical underpinning of the movement. It's odd.

You do have to admire the freedom to use the words 'scum', 'Nazi', 'disgusting', etc. in a kind of Tourette's of abuse. It's the sign of people who are hyping themselves up for more direct action. When a mainstream political party uses Der Stürmer-style language, you are well on your way to more lively times.

OTOH, I'm happy to see Team Red start to come around to a more anti-Surveillance State mindset. If that actually pushes through to a privacy oriented set of actions, it might all be worthwhile.

None of this is new, of course.

Notice that the ACLU used to be on the side of the angels on this one.

Think the best quote about the topic was posted a couple weeks ago.

"Trump did not create the liberals' hate. He exposed it."

Projection is an apt word lately. Guess you can add the word fascist to the list of what constitutes a Deplorable. Fascist is my new badge of honor.
To echo Dr. Rebane's post:

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/looking-for-fascism-in-america-look-left-on-campus/article/2616621

"One final note: the Associated Press ran a story about the response to Murray's speech in Middlebury that twice in its first three paragraphs repeated characterizations of him as a "white nationalist." The Washington Post, to its shame, printed the story unchanged. This is a disgraceful libel, as anyone who knows Murray's work or knows him personally knows very well. The AP writer and the Post editor who passed the story along relied for their second characterization on the Southern Poverty Law Center — a dicey source as Harry Zieve Cohen of The American Interest and Charlotte Allen in The Weekly Standard make clear. Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron, if he still wishes to claim the mantle of an objective journalist, should find out how this vile slur got into his paper and make an appropriate disclosure and apology."

Ha! Never happen.

Scott Obermuller

This whole topic is dismal. The Middlebury incident was just one more thug fest by the left. They won. Again.
Where was law enforcement?
Is anyone here aware that probably less than 5% of Americans even know about this sort of regular occurrence?
Even more depressing is George's hope in a handful of folks that resemble the promise of being rescued by the Crain brothers. (TV show)
"But perhaps all is not lost. Soon after the ‘disinvitation’, a group of courageous Middlebury faculty decided that enough was enough, and collected themselves under the notion of ‘Free Inquiry on Campus’ to rebut their own McCarthyists and those already established across the land by making the point that “learning is possible only where free, reasoned and civil speech is respected.”
Oh - huzzah! So courageous to speak out against a bunch of animals.
I'll admit I didn't get much (pay wall) but what I read sounded like like a bunch of nellies ready to surrender if a few social niceties are
met.
They cave right off by identifying Murray as 'controversial'. He's a human being that was invited to speak. He doesn't advocate violence or law breaking. Anyone who is preventing that from happening is an enemy of our Constitution and our civil rights. Period.
Why this is tolerated is making me just hold my head. Our country is lost if this is not stopped. Legally - by law enforcement.
Any other way is folly.

Oh I imagine both history and empirical observation is guiding their path.

The Violent Vibrant Snowflake Corps is already showing a nasty tendency to cannibalize their mentors when there's even the slightest hint of deviation from the revolutionary path. If they could guarantee their safety and maintain their status without making this concession I'm sure they'd be completely sanguine about the beating up of crimethinkers and their enablers.

"The Violent Vibrant Snowflake Corps is already showing a nasty tendency to cannibalize their mentors when there's even the slightest hint of deviation from the revolutionary path."
In the short term - 5 - 10 years or so, at least, this sort of behavior has been shown to be quite effective.
In the Soviet, it worked for quite a spell. In China it is on-going after several generations.

Obama's bro just sent out his birth certificate for Barry. Kenyan.

But Ms Clinton says - "What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?"

I listened to an interview with a young calm articulate man who was part of the group that invited Milo to Berkley and had to come up with the security deposit (anonymous donation of $7,000 helped). Anyway, his job was to sit back and record the protest line outside. The campus cops where on the balcony above him. He neither displayed pro or con, nor emotion. He just recorded the outside in an unbiased manner.

Here is what grabbed my attention: After some time, it became apparent that being neutral was not an acceptable option in the eyes of the rabid scum demonstrators. At first they went after oblivious Milo/Trump supporters waiting to attend....the ladies with red ball caps and like dressed people....and left our neutral observer alone. But, then the mood turned ugly and if the haters deemed you not with them, then they attacked the bystanders. Either you are for them or you must be the enemy. The young student wax pummeled as the cops on the balcony right above him watched and did nothing. Oh, they fired some rubber bullets when the arsonists got too close to the building, but did not lift a finger to break up the mob attacking even curious bystanders.

The young conservative approached an officer to file a report, but the campus police refused to take a report. After the young man went to the ER for concussion and other injuries, he again tried to file a police report. Again he was told that the Police were not accepting reports of incidents.

Two things impressed me. First, he still thinks it is possible to have a dialogue about free speech (in general terms) on campus and many on campus feel that violence is not the appropriate way to have a dialogue. Well, I guess that is progress.
Second, there is no middle ground. Either you hate Trump or you will be scorned, spit on, followed around campus, harassed, have personal property vandalized. This is what campus life had been for the Young Republicans since the election.....BEFORE Milo was scheduled and after the burning of a campus building causing $100,000 damage. Actually, it had nothing to do with Milo. Milo just brought attention to what has been going on before most even heard the name Milo.

The point is if you say a word not critical of Trump from a fair observation or even utter a quasi kind word if Trump does something right, you are now the enemy, even if you are a Lib. Look at the vicious way they turned on Van Jones after Trumps address to Congress....and Van Jones is about as Left and Commie as they come, lol.

No more using your ability to reason or state the obvious. That is unacceptable and not an option. They are blinded by hate and demand that you or I hate Trump as well. Demand. They demand we see things exactly the skewed way they see thing...or else.

Todd Juvinall

Well well well, looks like the Vermonters have had enough of this Mayor. Berni Sanders better rethink his love of those Syrian refugees. The Mayor of Rutland lost his re-election to a "no Syrians" here guy. The losing Mayor was a proponent. Maybe even socialist Vermont gets it?

Well now we know what our former street riot organizer President meant by his promise to "change" America. Riot and revolution! Division and war in America! It's been going on a long time using activists who (with gov) have been destroying businesses one by one.
But the funny irony is that former President Obama was awarded the Peace Prize shortly after his election.

Scott Obermuller

George at 2:53 - "I suppose there's a chance that our leftwingers will address the post's topic sooner or later. My money is on later."
Always the optimist. I admire that in you George.
I tend to be a realist. A happy warrior realist, but a realist non the lest.
My money's on never.
What would they say?

A great article. We have a similar situation in Poland but still probably to a slightly smaller extent. People who express any kind of support of the current ruling party are pushed to the margin and even further. To the dump, usually being offensively accussed of ignorance, mental disability and 'redneckism'. No real arguments given apart from 'freedom', 'progress' and 'equality'.
