    This says everything about the US doesn't it. If someone doesn't agree with your views, they will try to harm or kill you. People hate this man because they believe he is immoral, racist fascist etc and yet they believe killing him is okay. Left wingers are disgusting.
    Somebody left wing does something bad therefore the entire left wing is disgusting. Flawless logic.

    It is evident from your magniloquent language that you are attempting to give others the impression that you are intelligent and worldly; unfortunately, you are failing.

    Basically, you're an idiot.
    The irony of this is pathetic. My purple prose is almost a literary filter to breed arguments with people that can sustain a prolonged conversation with me. And relative to that, you are failing.

    Of course this wasn't an assassination attempt. Just hyperbolic BS by typical Americans.

    But it is clear that he IS racist...have you not paid attention to what he has said during the time of his campaign?
    I haven't watched every rally he's ever done. Got any examples?

    While this does hold some merit, my point was in relation to the unspoken fact that a presidential candidate is the reflective body that represents certain beliefs. A sort of human embodied devils advocate. One who you vote for if you agree with and don't if you disagree. Violence upon a presidential candidate is violence against a belief which is ****ed up.

    However violence upon a supporter is emotionally driven, more personal/sociopathic and slightly different in my opinion.
    Are you really trying to quantify the relative ****ed upness each situation? One guy got punched, another almost got harmed. One was a supporter, one is a presidential candidate, big whoop.

    Then we have different ideas on what is racism.

    Just threw it in there because I dislike social left wingers.
    Don't. It significantly undermines your argument.

    I should have separated the two as one is clearly my opinion and one clearly an objective analysis. One conclusion was not drawn from the other, however my bad format and grammar perpetually misrepresent what I intend to say.

    That's why I'm on tsr... I think.

    'Assassination attempt' might be a bit over the top
    Right, that's why you put "ASSASSINATION Attempt" in the title in block capitals.

    But do you not think Trump is the most controversial of all? There's much more opposition this time, from around the world

    I found it offensive, so I tried to shut the debate down
    I would suggest trying to develop a resistance to such insignificant things.

    And lol, that quoted sentence is the exact definition of excessive political correctness.

    I am concerned. Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister:



    Said, "When people are scared, don't feed in to that fear. Don't dismiss it. Don't mock it. Listen to it, find out its root and address that."

    Trump is a fear parasite, not leading people at all. He's simply tapping in to fears that have legitimate basis' and giving voice to an ignored demographic.

    If there were any other candidate saying, "This is why people are afraid. Here is what we should do to calm their fears and solve this problem." then there would be no Trump.

    Sadly, Trump is a reaction to people ignoring the growing fear of a very large set of constituents.

    Trudeau should be the one to run for President. He'd be better than any of the current crop.
