When a group states that its purpose is to kick the snot out of white supremacists, and loads of conservatives get terrified and say "those people beating up white supremacists are real bad guys and the only ones whose violence we're concerned with," what that really is is the best confession ever. You really don't know how many of your cards you're showing, do ya?
And the efforts to lump Black Lives Matter -- which is officially a peaceful movement -- in with Antifa just takes a highlighter to it. Your fear of BLM is very telling -- even black people saying "please stop murdering us" seems a threat to your way of life.
The real truth is, ya'll want all protesters labeled as "dangerous" because you're desperate to crack down on any resistance to you. Your motivation is transparent. You're stupid, mean-spirited people who elected a garbage president, you secretly realize you fucked up, and the fact that a whole lot of the country knows it, recognizes your nasty motivations, and really, really doesn't like you terrifies you. You don't want people to see it. You don't like looking at the size of the crowds that show up who think you're shitty people and not "good Americans." You're upset that you're not approved of universally.
Too bad. For years we put up with TEA Partiers and jerks who carried automatic rifles into Target stores and Chilis restaurants and we shrugged that off. Now it's your turn to face some opposition, and, surprise, you're whining about it. Especially since our crowds are a hell of a lot bigger than you ever managed. You didn't "get your country back" (whatever that means) after all. And you're never going to. You're not going to be able to enforce conformity or squash resistance. You're never going to have everyone approve of you. And a lot of people -- oh, god, so MANY people -- are going to keep knowing you really, really suck at being a human being.
I've never said every conservative or Trump supporter was a racist. I've stated the exact opposite. But since that accusation keeps getting made here anyway, over and over again, it's obvious I get no credit for giving benefit of the doubt. So I'm 'bout five seconds away from one big hell-with-it and claiming that all the ones on this site damn well might be. If I'm gonna be accused of it anyway, I have nothing to lose by no longer granting slack. It's looking like I was giving too much credit for this particular corner, anyway. The only Trump supporter here who actually tries to rationally discuss things is Gatorfan, once in a while. The rest just seem to be using this as a remedial-language-skills thing.
Oh, and about that... if you truly have any pride in America at all, can you at least make an effort to properly use its language? I'm not talking typos -- we all make those -- or being unreasonable about dashed-off messages, but some of you don't even understand that a question mark (this thingie --> ? ) goes at the end of sentences that ask a question, or that periods don't go in the middle of sentences that aren't finished. You wouldn't make it through an ESL class with that, and you're screaming about closing borders because "they can't speak the language." If you're going to get upset when people think you're stupid, start by not writing like an imbecile. Please. I don't even have to look at the names anymore to tell who on this board is conservative or liberal. If it's got good grammar usage, it's a liberal, and if it writes things like "which is nazi like in their" or "College brats to distaught to attend schoolso they sit in the strees crying" it's a conservative. And it's getting really hard to be generous with you anymore. You guys holler to high heaven when people who don't work hard ask for things they didn't earn, and, I'm sorry, but that ethic works for intelligence, too. No more credit for smarts should be flowed to people who don't work at their writing. It's all we have on this board, so take a little pride in it.
