    Anyone else worried that the LEFT has gone completely bonkers?

    All the way from Clinton/Obama acolytes in the Dept of Justice, totally stonewalling Congress, to actually just DEFYING subpoenas when it doesn't suit them.

    The media going bonkers batshit crazy about the fake immigration crisis and now they're openly calling for NO BORDERS whatsoever.

    The Democrats doing everything they can to destroy and bankrupt this nation, like the unAmerican traitors they are.

    RINOS are an annoyance, but I don't fear them as much. They're political cowards. But Democrats are true believers in a SOROS backed one world order with them at the top.

    Being in California, I had to endure some stupid anti TRUMP , pro illegal alien march in my town. Now they're opening stating that they're going to start attacking Trump Supporters or Republicans, or Conservatives.

    I never thought I'd see it THIS BAD. The 60s were bad, but it was the tantrums of the counterculture. Nowadays it's the tantrum of the MEDIA ELITES, HOLLYWOOD, and ACADEMIA. Now Big businesses like the tech giants, and banks are censoring, attacking conservatives or gun owners.

    The ones screaming Nazi are becoming the Nazis.

    Just getting worried thats all.

    Fear and worry? No. Most of us already knew how screwed up the left is but bear in mind. Just as the media is blowing this thing with the kids at the border all out of proportion they are also exaggerating the support. The average hard working American, whether the vote R or D isn't lying awake at night worrying over these kids or most of the "issues" reported by the MSM.

    I'd agree the liberals are pulling out all the stops to get Trump but I'm not worried or afraid because of it. Do your self the biggest favor possible and get out of California.

    Hard to believe the left in the 60's was all about freedom and individualism, peace, anti-government and non conformism, They've done a 180 on all these ideals.

    Trump needs to extend his border wall to include CA, along with Mexico. Let them live in the Promised Land with the rest of the Mexicans. CA should be good enough for the Mexicans. After all, CA did belong to Mexico at one time. Time to give it back....reparations, so to speak....

    I am not worried by I am surprised at the unhidden hatred and calls for, not to mention the threat and actual use, violence to silence voices that the left does not agree with. Now, to be fair this does not come from all liberals, but it is coming from a larger and more vocal group than before.

    Not to argue, or disagree, but just to point out that we condem muslims who don't condem radical muslims, as being complicit with the radical.

    I feel the same with liberals/socialist that don't condem this behavior. They are just as complicit as the perpetrators.

    I can live with that, but there are a fair number of liberals who do condemn this behavior, but the number is becoming smaller.

    But it wasn't in California that LEFTIST THUGS attacked DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. And the fucking media is doubling down, saying "How DARE this woman eat at a restaurant of her choosing?" New Yorker, NY Times, CNN, CBS, recent headlines show that the media is slamming her for the audacity of eating in public. It's crazy.

    It wasn't in California that BLACK students tried to throw All WHITE students and Faculty OFF CAMPUS.

    There is too much shit going on in every state BUT California. If it were only California, the fix would be easy. My concern is that it's nation wide. I think my friends in solid red states don't realize how pervasive the CANCER is. Also weaponizing the FBI and the IRS affects ALL Americans,not just Californians. A Rogue Dept of Justice is a threat to ALL Americans, not just Blue State people.

    Stating that sealing off California with a wall is funny, but it doesnt' even come close to addressing the problem. Liberals are mentally ill. They'll stream towards all the rest of you like TICKS in search of blood.

    Amen to that brother.....they've been streaming into Colorado for years and are totally ruining this state with their fucking communist ideals and enviro-Nazi crap. God how I hate them!


    We used to cuss the Texans migrating here back in the day but looking back with hindsight they were a blessing compared to the cancerous plague of liberals that are infesting our state.
    Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket???

    Californians fleeing the state because of GUNS are your spiritual brethren. Californians moving to you to either enjoy your marijuana laws or to enjoy your cost of living or job opportunities, are big city liberals. Keep one set of Californians, dump the other.

    The problem with liberals is that if any place starts getting NICE and DESIRABLE for a multitude of reasons, they'll flock there and destroy it. Kinda like a flood of illegals, except they're intellectual refugees (with only a few brain cells that they brought with them).

    Don't forget the shortage of housing, high cost of housing, higher taxes, higher gas prices, etc. We left SoCal in 1989 and have never considered going back. Best decision as a family we ever made.

    Unfortunately it never seems to be very many of the good guys or they're flying under the radar.


    It's big city libs....and they've always been a presence up north in Denver and Boulder and Hollywood hide-aways like Aspen and Vail but now they're everywhere and taking over everything. It's like some invasion of alien-beings who have taken over while we slept....where the fuck did they all come from and how have they seized power so quickly???


    It's like a bad horror movie......maybe we need some sunglasses!

    Well, for one, people who think like you don't make spectacles out of themselves. They move in, keep to themselves, pay taxes and don't cause trouble. Because of that YOU don't notice them. And they want it that way. LIBTARDS are always causing trouble and bringing attention to themselves because they're attention whores.

    Liberals support each other and help each other out. They back each other up in every group they're in and work together to FORCE OUT any other voices. They do it in schools, in government, in local city councils, in any government agency, etc. What do conservatives do? Shit on each other. We see that all the time here. Conservatives don't rally around each other like a tribe, and that will be our downfall. You gotta support your spiritual brothers or sisters, because, you know, divide and conquer.

    I love all the 'big talking' guys who brag about how they can retreat to their cabins and stock up like a prepper. That doesn't HELP the country. People have to VOTE, they have to be engaged or we're gonna LOSE this nation to a bunch of psychopaths.

    Yeah I mean they're basically communists going by another name so team work is their strongpoint and we tend to be the rugged individualist types who value liberty and independence. Coming together to hold hands and sing songs just isn't our way and this indeed is our weakest point. If you've ever tried to get your buddies to try and give some effort to anything political you quickly find out the meaning of frustration.

    It's all a part of that "it only happens to other people" mindset that everyone has...until it happens to them. This is the problem we face and honestly my faith in the ballot box is waning.


    They control the big cities and have created a huge populous of dark allies that march in lock step to the polls to mindlessly vote for their candidates.


    How do we defeat them with votes when they outnumber us?


    20 years ago hope burned brightly in my heart....now....not so much.

    First, stop calling them Liberals, they aren't. They usurped the Liberal name until they stunk it up and people figured out what they were.
    Then they went back to calling themselves Progressives.

    What they are are Marxist Leftest. They do not believe in any form of America that we were given by the Founders.

    With members of the administration being harassed at restaurants and at home, and loony Maxine Waters calling for good Progressive mobs to begin harassing them whenever they can, even to following their children to school and demonstrating there, it's only a matter of time.
    When Hollywood loons call for kidnapping, and others for arresting people who oppose them, it's only a matter of time.

    We've already had two Leftist violent attacks with guns and one physical attack, this on top of the street violence.
    We've had several police killed in Texas by a BLM member.
    One got the name of an organization from the very miss-named Southern Poverty Law Center and shot the place up, wanting to smear Chick Filet in their dead faces because he was told they were anti-gay bigots.

    The other was a Berny supporter who shot up the Republican ball team and wounded two law officers and several congressmen, including Scalise who almost died and will be hurting for the rest of his life.

    Another bravely body slammed Paul from the rear and seriously injured him.

    With all the Dim leaders either calling for confrontations or excusing it by their silence, it's only a matter of time before one of their more unhinged supporters in the #Resistance decides to take it up another level, with a bomb, a gun, or a face full of acid.
    Then you'll see the Dims and their friends in the press tut tuting about how awful it is, and blaming it on the "climate of hate from Trump".
    They'll deny any responsibility and call for....wait for it, GUN CONTROL.

    This is a road we as a free country DO NOT want to go down. No one ever wins in a situation like that.
    I don't like the Progressives and their Fascist buddies in Antifa and Black Lives Matter, but I don't want to see Americans dead in the street.

    God help The USA if the Dims win any power this fall. When the violence from their own starts, they'll do everything they can to attack the very people NOT causing the violence.... Us normal Americans.
    As is always the case of the Left, they can't help themselves and always go too far. When they have power, they persecute the people, and eventually it gets to Gulags and bullets in the back of the head in a basement.
    The only saving grace is, unlike other countries in history, we're armed and are not going to comply.

    Your question was "Anyone else worried that the LEFT has gone completely bonkers?". They appear to be dangerously close.

    I think they've already passed that point. Now, they're just on the degree of insanity they'll sink down to.

    Watching FNC and one of their commentators was saying how 20+ years ago no one outside of Maxine Water's district would be aware of her rants and raves but now everything is national news. I feel like the left has always had their whack jobs, we're just seeing it reported more, especially by certain media outlets.

    I no a number of Democrats who don't agree with any of this garbage. Problem is the nuts like Maxine are elected by people just as nutty.
