Trump Making Liberals Lose Their Civility, Again

By 33 Comments 2,401 views

If Donald Trump has brought out the worst in conservatives, he’s also brought it out in the left-wing of American politics.

When anti-Trump protesters (who claim to be supporters of 1st Amendment rights) show up at Trump rallies to disrupt, shutdown, and verbally and physically assault Trump and his supporters, they not only make themselves look bad; but they also make Trump look good. Some smart Democrats understand this:

Democrats and Hispanic activists said Friday that they are increasingly alarmed by a spate of violence at Donald Trump rallies instigated by anti-Trump protesters, fearing that the incidents — widely viewed on television and social media — will only help the GOP candidate and undermine their attempts to defeat him.

The latest flash point came Thursday in downtown San Jose, where a demonstration outside a Trump campaign rally quickly escalated out of control. Several protesters assaulted Trump supporters, ripped pro-Trump signs away from them and stomped on vehicles in the area. A flurry of video clips circulating Friday morning showed bystanders who sustained bloody injuries.


“My people aren’t violent. It’s these people who come in,” Trump said. “My people want to do one thing: Make America great again.” He repeatedly blamed Bernie Sanders’ campaign on the interruptions. “Bernie, get your people in line,” Trump said, vastly overstating the Sanders campaign’s organizational skills.

Trump is making Bernie brothers so crazed, they’re even mistakenly attacking each other at anti-Trump protests.

Trump’s even managed to bring out the worst in new age guru, Deepak Chopra:

The political rise of Donald Trump is so disturbing, even New Age guru Deepak Chopra has lost his good vibes.

In an interview Tuesday with Fox News Radio host Alan Colmes, the famed preacher of Transcendental Meditation and alternative medicine unleashed on the presumptive Republican nominee, using a pejorative to describe his mental capacities.

“I would never say this unless I believed it was 100% true, but he represents the racist, the bigot, the one who’s prejudiced, the one who is full of fear and hatred, the one who represents emotional retardation of a three-year old,” he said Tuesday. “And yet he’s so popular because he’s given permission to our collective psyche to express their darkest demons.”

“He’s full of fear. He is angry. He has a lot of hatred. He pouts, he’s belligerent, he’s emotionally retarded,” the mindfulness meditation advocate reiterated.

Mirror, anyone?

Actually, the alternative medicine master is enlightened enough to recognize the hatred in himself:

In a Huffington Post column earlier this week, Chopra wrote that Trump has brought out the “shadow” in American politics—the “dark impulses” inside everyone, including himself.

“What I said just now [about Trump’s ‘retardation’], I would never say these things about anybody,” the guru confessed. “It’s not like me. But he’s bringing out the worst in me, because I, too, am fearful of what would happen to the United States of America and the rest of the world if, God forbid, he became president.”

After several minutes of scorning himself for giving into such negative “demons,” effectively feeding Trump’s desire for controversy, Chopra took it a step further: “Maybe I was too kind when I said he was emotionally retarded, maybe he’s mentally retarded too.

“He who fights with Trump should be careful lest he thereby become a Trump. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.”

    deepak chopra and oz are media hustlers. they prompter crap and should have lost their medical licenses years ago. so emotionally retarded, similar is deepak chopra he should have been banned from writing. well we all know he does not write but his staff of over 12 people do his alleged journalistic reviews. too bad that liberals like you are so narcissistic if events do not go their way. reminds me of a child winning because he did not get what he wanted. the useless john mccain had a capsule of cyanide in his pocket when he went down. all pilots in Vietnam carried a tablet-he was too chicken to take it. one does not spend five years in the Hanoi Hilton other than for propaganda. he and Hanoi Jane share the same fame. when donald wins you will be peddling the same democratic propaganda as you do today.

    Listen Up America! It is not that Donald J Trump is bringing out the worst in anything he says. His WORDS are long over due in this country! We have been as Americans overrun, abused, and attacked by the border to the South, further we have been abused by the United Nations, and leaders around the world with such weak and unconcerned and undedicated leadership as this nation has not had over the period of 8 long and arduous years now. The last Great President this nation enjoyed was Ronald Reagan, and now once again it is time to have another. Donald J Trump is a man of vision, a concerned American who wants this nation restored to it’s greatness with dignity and respect from all the nations of the world. America under the weakest leaders ever has given up to much to outside nations and people who do not have America’s best interest as priority ONE! Now it is time to “TAKE BACK THIS NATION, AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND RESTORE HER IMAGE WORLD WIDE! It is disgusting to see what we have going on within our nation’s borders. It is sickening to the heart of the TRUE American to see their country so disrespected by all those who have been taking from her for so long enhancing themselves and others with no regard for the consequences that will come from what they do. It is time to SLAM THE DOORS TO THIS NATION AND REGROUP AND RETHINK OUR PRIORITIES AS AMERICA HAS TO COME FIRST AND FOREMOST BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE! If TRUE Americans do not stand up and align themselves in a unified position on the future of our nation then our nation is subject to being attacked even more than we have seen to date. THIS AGGRESSION AND HOSTILITY WITHIN OUR BORDERS MUST BE STOPPED NOW!!! THE INVASION OF THIS NATION BY THOSE WHO DO NOT ALIGN THEMSELVES AS TRUE AMERICANS BUT SOMETHING ELSE NEED TO BE EXILED FROM THIS COUNTRY! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! NOW IT IS TIME TO LAY A NEW ROAD TO A FUTURE THAT WILL “MAKE AMERICA STRONG AND GREAT AGAIN!!” The only person who can, the only person who will is Donald J Trump and all Americans of TRUE American substance and vision need to stand up and be aligned to the effort under way NOW!!!

    Word, normally you and I agree on just about everything, but if Trump is at fault for having brought out the worst in the left, then what was the excuse for their behavior during the Bush years, or during the OWS “rallies”, or the BLM movement? Hell, even go back to anti-draft riots of the ’60’s and 70’s. The left is who they are and they can’t help themselves. They’d be doing the same thing regardless of who the GOP nominee is perhaps not to the same extent. Obama has given us 7 years of us vs. them rhetoric setting the stage for and making it possible for Trump’s rise. Now he “innocently” sits back acting like the adult in the room so his approval ratings can go up. As I said on another thread, I will probably vote for my dogs in November.

    If any Republican called a Democrat ”retarded,” it would be headline news.
    If he worked at ESPN, he would be fired for sure!

    But what is Depak so upset about?
    That Donald Trump hasn’t played by the rules that are defined by an ever-smaller Overton Window.
    That Overton Window, which is the universe of allowable political discourse, has been closing via the Left’s redefining reality down via PC.
    Donald Trump ignores that Overton Window and talks about whatever he damn well pleases to talk about.
    PC be damned, he goes there: illegal immigration, the wall, murdered Americans because of Sanctuary Cities ignoring our laws, etc.
    The truth is, the Left can’t win arguments about these things, so they sought to define them as un-PC and therefore non-subjects for political discourse.
    The GOPe, ruled by Wall Street’s national Chamber of Commerce, went along with the Left’s limitations because then the voters had NO choice at all, but as long as all sides kept their mouth’s shut, maybe the voting public would never realize that fact. Open borders and amnesty would have been policy no matter which side won.
    But Trump gave the voting public a real choice.
    He will close the border, deport illegals, tighten the oversight of foreign visitors (so they can’t overstay) and end the sanctuary city travesty.
    I guess the big surprise was how many voters liked his non-PC, broken Overton Window message.
    Depak can get used to it.
    And between now and November, he can (and I’m sure he will) work to put Hillary in office.

    I’m on record (on this very site in fact) as not being Trump’s biggest fan. But I think the tiniest bit of introspection from those calling him a racist isn’t too much to ask.

    What I’d like them to specifically examine is this: Trump has been in the public eye for nearly four decades now. In all that time he’s been very publicly rubbing elbows with all sorts of politicians, sports figures and entertainers. They run the gamut from Don King to Hilary Clinton. So I think it’s fair to question why no one noticed he was such a virulent racist before ten months ago. Did he morph into this rabid beast overnight?

    Maybe wealth trumps race, when it comes to perceived human value.

    Actually, though, I don’t believe he’s a racist. I believe he’s exploiting racism, which is a different thing. He exploits the negative energy that comes from a variety of divisions. I think it’s all calculated. The Big Kahuna is surfing on a wave of negative energy. This is his hope for the White House. Hillary Clinton is already the target of mountain of negative propaganda and perception. He will paddle his surfboard like mad and try to catch that wave.

    Donald Trump does not bring out the worst in anyone. They’re just using him as an excuse to act like what they have always been.
    These people are like drunks, of the sort that I met when I was a bouncer.
    There is no such thing as a mean drunk, that SOB is just as mean when he’s sober, he just hides it better.
    The worst people aren’t even trying to hide it anymore, and they’re using Mr. Trump as an excuse.

    @Petercat: they’re using Mr. Trump as an excuse.

    the Left has recently begun pulling talking points straight out of Islam.
    In Islam it is ”haram” (forbidden) to instigate any violence at all. It must only RESPOND to offense. And boy does Islam find offense under every rock!
    Now, so does the Left.
    It isn’t just being hit.
    It is mere words.
    It is perceived microagressions.
    It is triggerings.
    Just like in Islam, it is anything they need to say it was to justify their violence.

    Chopra is a charlatan who has rehashed old ideas and America’s afternoon TV viewers got enchanted. Nothing this egoist says holds much credibility.

    And since we’re quoting, . . . A far-reaching quote today comes to us from another meatball, the nation-destroyer George Soros, Mr. Soros also argues that there remains a good chance the European Union will collapse under the weight of the migration crisis“.

    He’s shorting the EU basically, with billions in bets. WHY? He’s promoting open borders knowing full well the destructive impact it will have on all nations including the U.S.

    He’s also backing Hillary with millions of dollars, just like he funded Obama.

    Is anyone in the media connecting any of these dots? Not much.

    I have asked and asked and asked for someone to provide an example of Trump’s “racism”. The closest I have gotten to an answer is, “If I have to tell you, then blah, blah, blah.”

    Thanks to leftists wearing out the word, accusing anyone that disagrees with them a racist for disagreeing with them, the word has no meaning.

    @Bill: If you haven’t caught wind of recent racist statements of Trump, don’t understand how possibly Hispanics and Latinos have interpreted him, and deft to his birther dog whistle, then you’ll continue to hear nothing more than ” blah blah blah”.

    Bill, Hillary has paid over $1 million for trolls to troll here and elsewhere.

    If it requires work, they are going to let it slide under a facade of verbal diarrhea.

    @Ajay42302: If you can’t provide even ONE valid example, then it looks like this is merely yet another case of left wing, lying racists using race as a political tool.

    Further indication that anything a liberal liar says is nothing but, “blah, blah, blah”.

    Yes, I AM deft. You, however, are not.

    Big news here in Utah is Romney’s Never Trump E2 get together.
    All he could pull in were 300 people.
    That’s after a national call for support for a ”Never Trump,” way to move forward after Trump.

    @Spurwing Plover: Used to getting their way despite their way not working!

    Let’s look at Obama’s re-election promise of creating 1 million new manufacturing jobs in 4 years.
    Here’s the harsh reality.
    Then there was the Obama plan to increase US exports in 5 years.
    The TPP isn’t going to turn this ship around.
    Fact, it can’t.
    It is too late.
    No wonder the Left is falling back to tantrums.

    @Ditto #21:

    Has anyone else noticed that Wordsmith is relying on mostly leftist MSM sites to supply his “facts.”

    Not just “facts” but “opinions”. Lessee…within this blogpost I linked to the Washington Post (mainstream, center-left or liberal-leaning), Time (mainstream and to the left), Daily Caller (non-mainstream, to the right)- and one of these which linked to Huffington Post (internet mainstream and liberal). Ok. Duh. I’d expect experienced poliblog readers and news surfers of the internet such as the ones we have here at FA to know what sites lean in which direction. Is there a problem? Should I be hooking you up to World Nut Daily, National Review, NewsMax, and only right-leaning sites? Further right, the better?

    Anything wrong with the links in this post? Or are you speaking about news sources I link to, in general? Should I only link to perspective and sources you agree with, ideologically? How often have you attempted to “educate” a liberal by linking to your set of “facts” from Fox News, Breitbart, or And instead of reading it, the lib just outright dismisses your news source for bias?

    On my Facebook newsfeed, I’ve “liked” mostly non-conservative sites not because I agree with them but for the very fact that I mostly disagree with them. I don’t wish to live in a bubble and navigate through an echo chamber. Boring and dull and predictable. It may be for similar reasons why guys like Greg and Rich Wheeler come here- it’s more stimulating to find debate and disagreement. To engage with people who don’t share your opinion.

    But if you’d like, there are plenty of conservative sites that have not been on the Trump bandwagon- some angry conservatives now seem to want to brand Mark Levin, Charles Krauthammer,Thomas Sowell, and other conservative stalwarts as traitors or RINOs, simply because they have a difference of opinion about Trump; or offer criticism and reluctance, dragging their @sses in lending support to the chosen nominee.

    Here are examples:

    I suppose he will next tell us that he is supporting the conservative cause by voting for Hillary.

    Nope. No more than I would accuse Trumpeteers of putting Hillary in the White House by jumping on the populist bandwagon of a conservative charlatan and snake-oil salesman who has charmed his audience with his cult of personality and pie-crust promises. He’s 100% a politician who says whatever you wish to hear him say for votes. But the Trumpkins have pixie-dust sprinkled in their eyes to see a supposed “political outsider” and anti-Establishment candidate.

    @Wordsmith: Exactly. I come here to “engage with people who don’t share my opinion.”
    People who watch only Fox get a slanted version of reality. The same can be said of MSNBC.
