Most Democrats think political war of words could bring violence: Pew

An alarming new Pew Research survey has found that 91 percent of poll respondents identifying as Democrats or Democrat-leaning think “heated rhetoric” from politicians “raises the risk of violence.”

By contrast, 61 percent of Republican or Republican-leaning respondents think “heated and aggressive language” could lead to violence, according to the survey.

Then SOMEBODY tell the Democrats to tone it down! They started stirring the pot, if the pot boils over they will most likely be the ones that get burned!

It does cause violence, but almost all political violence is carried out by those on the left. When logic, and reason, are not part of your ideals, and you know you cannot debate anyone who possesses those things, you resort to rhetoric, name calling, and finally violence. JMHO

I’ve been involved in a conversation with a leftist (I no longer use the term "liberal", because they’re all totalitarians) on Twitter today, and he thinks that the right is committing "stochastic terrorism" in its messaging, that will lead to physical violence.....by the right.

He also claimed that recorded acts of right wing terrorism far outnumber left wing acts of terrorism. He offered no numbers or examples, so I dismissed his statement.

Meanwhile, ALL of the political violence currently ongoing is being committed by AntiFa, a leftist/anarchist organization. As a minarchist libertarian, I don’t consider myself part of the right, but I have much more in common with the right than I have with the totalitarian left. To my mind, the the right is made up of very patient people.....who have a lot of lot of guns between them. If they were terrorists, we’d know by now. But nobody's patience is infinite. The left is going to push and push and push, and when the right finally pushes back, the left isn’t going to like it......those who survive.

:iagree: Of course, the left "could" just let us divorce amicably and live in peace apart from each other...but that's not what they want.

The term we're looking for here is, "Projection."

As much as I enjoy "Morpheus" way of phrasing, I'd MUCH rather hear them told to put a cork in it Samuel L. Jackson style. :smilelol5:

I can assure you, with 100% confidence, that is NOT how it will be reported on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google, NBC, or CNN.

They, in the form of Antifa, have already started it. It will be interesting to see if Antifa spreads away from left-wing enclaves.
