    What is being done here is the process of dehumanization.

    Attacking / killing another human might cause some moral concerns, but if you start thinking that they are "less than" human then that moral dilemma won't be as strong.

    Am well acquainted with the trend towards dehumanizing and otherizing one's political opponents. I don't play that game.

    No,wearing a Trump shirt should not get one assaulted. Assault because of political differences is never justified in a democracy.

    That's true even though Trump himself said:

    “knock the crap out of them … I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.”

    Did you watch the raw video of that event? I bet you'd have said something inappropriate in similar circumstances.

    However, that is one of the ultra rare cases where what trump actually said was ACTUALLY as bad as what was said about it... Nobody got beat up though... More people went to the hospital because of protesting the event than any of the people got hurt for protesting trump inside.

    Divide and conquer is easy when 32% of voters believe they are going to heaven because they are white. Women, brown, black, and Muslims are all going to burn in hell if they refuse to bow down to the white male.

    This is psychology 101 but Trump supporters demand a link to a PhD they will never read.
    They wanted a fantasy and we got a NIGHTMARE.

    Now it's closer to 5-10 times a day that people spread lies about trump...

    You'd think you guys would have learned you got called on lies almost a year ago.

    Why spread lies about Trump when the truth is worse?

    There you go again.... the lies are mostly not lies at all, a surprising amount are completely made up, doesn't seem to slow you down any though
