Donald Trump gets elected and the Left protests by setting fires in the street:
They form a Resistance and continue to riot for months, forming a Resistance whose members throw punches, attacking their enemy with their fists, sticks and bike locks stuffed in a sock. Celebrities who have joined the movement throw oil on the fire saying increasingly stupid things like they want to burn the White House down. And suddenly every Democrat pol is so angry they have seemingly lost the ability to control themselves and the air turns blue with their F-bombs.
The Left forms The Resistance made up of Antifa types and then seem shocked - shocked I tell you! when a nutter declares open season on Republicans. And Terry McAuliffes first reaction is to politicize it by railing about gun control.
Mark Steyn explains how this normalization of political violence lead to more political violence.
Going back to the dawn of this administration the left wants to denormalize and dehumanize its political opposition and they do that in a variety of ways.
He noted the riots at college campuses whenever a conservative is invited to speak and that if you oppose Obamacare that you want grannies and urchins to die.
Once you do that, Steyn continued, youre basically saying that theres no form of civilized political discourse with your opponent.
Where, I wonder, are the moderate

Right there, next to the moderate muslims. You could fit the lot of them into a phone booth, with room to spare.
There are a few with popular YouTube channels like “Sargon of Akkad”, but they are more classical liberals that are finding themselves on the right just by the hard leftist lurch that has taken place.
Died with JFK.
Kind of like a starfish that isn’t really a land creature, but becomes one when the tide goes out!
Where Are The Moderate Leftists?
They’re now called Republicans.
There are no moderate Democrats Liberals whatever you want to call them. Violent people. Always have been.
I think they are in the same place that “moderate” moozlums are. ALL lefties are losers...and potentially violent. They would murder every one who didn’t agree with them, if they could. Last century lefties murdered 100,000,000+ people (not counting abortions).
Satan’s army has no use for moderation.
There is no such thing. Can’t be both moderate and leftist at the same time. If they mean democrats like your grandparents democrats...Harry Truman, JFK,etc...they are all dead.
Are they talking about Democrats or Muslims ?
Moderate leftist are unicorns. If you find one do not harm it. They need to be studied to see if they can be replicated
A moderate leftist is the coward cheering on the violent leftist.
What moderate leftists exist voted for Trump, in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. They know what an evil sac of pus Hillary Clinton is. That left the authoritarian left following marching orders in voting for her, and the really wacky head-in-the-clouds Bernie supporters who increasingly can’t handle the cognitive dissonance of that same evil sac of pus stealing the Dem nomination from their second coming of McGovern. So, naturally, they take it out on not the evil sac of pus who cheated them out of the nomination, but Trump supporters and anyone who is a Republican (there’s often a distinct difference there, as we’ve discovered over the past year or so).
There are no moderate leftists. Leftism is pure evil; it is all about control of other people for the gain of a very few. Leftism is made up of
1) The few controlling elites who stay rich and powerful off the production of others
2) powerless serfs who do their bidding
3) a small, ever changing source of wealth (at first their own group’s worker class; when they shrug or expire, the elites find new sources of wealth to take by force)
And here is the kicker: the leftist ideology (peace, prosperity, working together) is a LIE. The ruling elites know it’s a lie, obviously, because they are the ones telling it. The serfs who are trapped in the lie know it’s a lie too. The only ones who believe it are liberals in the third group, who fall for it for a short while until they go under. Liberals are the most gullible people on the planet. Leftism could not keep running its scam without liberals.
“Leftism is pure evil; it is all about control of other people for the gain of a very few.”
I would say that “it is all about control of other people for the ‘ego’ of a very few.”
See GOPe ...
Not just ego. The ruling leftist elites get very very rich always, off the backs of others. And where there is great wealth, there is great armour to protect it.
