I did not specifically say the violence was woman from the march. But it does not matter. There are riots and violence by non-Trump supporters, period. Yet, you are afraid of crazy Trump fringe lunatics. So what is it, crazy Trump supporters or anarchists? You see, you simply state it is crazy Trump supporters you are afraid of. Yet, none show up at the womens march. But the previous day are anarchists and rioters but this does not scare you. I don't get it. As much as some like to point out Trump supporters are nuts, they do not point out non-trump supporters and anarchist are getting emboldened and way out of hand. . Again, I don't get were any fear of a Trump supporter is coming from.


The Women's March, on the other hand, was peaceful. The majority of the left do not endorse or support violent actions of fringe groups.

Good for the women on being peaceful. The anarchists were busy the following day rioting. The non-Trump supporters were busy blocking roads. The Trump supporters were busy having a good time and had no real reason to disrupt anything. Yet, the crazy fringe Trump lover scares you?

I will admit that my fears of fringe Trump supporters acting violently never came to pass, but I know it's a fear shared by other people.(totally unfounded fears. Other than paid for disruptions at Trump rallies name off any time a group of Trump Supporters blocked traffic and burned business') What I didn't consider was anarchists like Disrupt J20 using the planned (peaceful) protests as an opportunity to create havoc and intensify the division between the right and the left.

SMH that Trump supporters are seen possibly violent without much evidence of a few disruptions at a Trump rally. Yet, day after day riots and anarchists run amoke and it appears you are ok with this because more than likely these individuals would not show up at a women's march.

Step back and take a look at who is rioting. Truth be told, many did not attend the swearing in because of the violent riots conducted by non-Trump supporters.
That doesn't matter because it's perfectly acceptable for "liberals" to destroy property and hurt or kill people, whereas peaceful people who aren't liberals are "literally Nazis!!!!".

I hope this explanation clears that up.

Yes, thanks to the so-called "mainstream media", which has been demonizing Trump and his supporters non-stop since he got the Republican nomination.

They aren't anarchists. They are paid rioters.

That is what I was getting at. The anarchists and rioting is simply OK. I have YET to see a roving group of Trump supporters burning, destroying and blocking traffic.


Berkley is burning!!!!! Not a Trump supporter insight. Well, except for the Trump supporter brutally beaten by 4 rioters. Forgot about him.

Student Trump supporter beaten on Berkeley campus after protest



Thank the media for much of what has occurred and to come.

Don't put words in my mouth. I NEVER said that I was OK with riot and anarchists running amok. I said I didn't even consider that it would happen, until it did.

And with all Trump's rhetoric during his campaign encouraging violence, he has a lot of people scared. It's not just me, and not just for our safety, but for our fundamental civil rights, which is why people are protesting.

Try listening to other people and be empathetic to their fears instead of trying to shut them up by telling them they're morons.

You never said it not OK. You simply looked at crazied Trump supporters. Less than a handful of them but none the less... Month after month the "anarchist" have been rioting and you did not consider these anarchists would riot at a womens march? Perhaps these folks are not anarchists but liberals?

For all the rhetoric of Trump, these were not protests. These where riots. Call it as it was and still is. Concerning violence, who is being violent? Any of the Trump supporters?

How about those that feared attending the swearing in of Trump but were afraid of riots? There were many. Their fears were not unfounded at all. You do not appear to care about their fears.

You and tech-novelist are certainly dumping on me a lot and are treating me like I'm a moron. You don't have to say the exact words, I can read between the lines. I've been getting a lot of disrespect on this thread, simply for voicing my opinion.

Peace out.

Love some real conversation concerning the misconception that Trump supporters are crazed lunatics on the edge. Nothing supports this assertion.

Stating the facts does not treat you like a moron. You have fears of Trump supporters doing what? They have done nothing to warrant any fears. Not attempting to dump on you.

I usually pick up on that stuff. Do you have any specific clips where he encouraged violence?

You never heard that from me. The worst I can say about Trump supporters is that they (1) latch onto any tidbit of fake news and run with it without fact-checking first (remember those boys in Europe tried to flood the Democrats' lines with fake news but nobody bit, so they gave up and just focused on feeding it to the Republicans; I just had dinner with one last night who was spouting NOT true crap as though it was the truth); and (2) tend to throw out a lot of very unkind, unChristianlike verbiage about their opponents (have had my share of that the past few months); and (3) let the hate-mongers usurp their platform and become the 'face' of the party. I could share just as many horror stories of people hating people once Trump started down this horrific road as you did with the 'riots.'
