    As in - “when you see a throng of protesters, don’t walk over and try to shout them down with a USA chant, or at least understand the risks of doing so”.

    There’s “legal right to counter protest” but there’s also “pick your battles”.
    Yeah, when I travel I try and keep it on the cool side... Not talking to too many people and keeping my voice down. I don't usually change what I'm wearing though.

    Most Americans dont have a passport.

    "Only 36 percent of Americans hold passports—but that number has gone up substantially in the past two years, when that number was 10 percent. "

    That's still higher than the number who voted for Trump.

In the Trump era, we're back to a similar situation.

    It would be particularly unfair if people in countries like the UK held Trump against traveling Americans, since Trump-supporting Americans are a disproportionately provincial lot. Generally speaking, the kind of U.S. citizen you encounter on the streets of London or Paris isn't the kind who supports Trump. Of my Facebook "friends," the Trumpsters are, with only one exception, people whose idea of an exotic vacation is a trip to Orlando or, at most, some tourist cloister in the Caribbean.
    I have no doubt that Londoners, like the rest of mankind, are prone to stereotyping.

    Trump did enough in Britain all on his own to earn the scorn and opprobrium beng heaped upon him. Being the instigator of a nascent fascist state is almost incidental. Hopefully no innocent Americans will be harmed during our expression of free speech.

    This was from when he tried to bully the Scottish government into shutting down an offshore windfarm that he felt spoiled his sea view!



    You just can't get that close these days!
