    Well... Err... Not to put too fine a point on it, but Hitler got in to power through the violent intimidation of other parties, including physical attacks of supporters and their leaders.

    Trump had to cancel a rally in Chicago because of violent protests and this attack on him suggests his opposition have taken pages from Hitler's handbook on politics.(With apologies to Godwin's law).

    Trump is a terrible person. Physically intimidating him or his supporters to shut them down is worse and simply legitimizes him.

    The current US election can be summed up as, "Don't blame me. I voted for Kodos."
    Trump has repeatedly urged violent attacks against protesters and his own campaign manager has assaulted people.

    The closure of the Chicago rally appears to be mainly a PR move by Trump as the police advised him it was safe to proceed. Most of the trouble there was caused by heavy handed police action and it was kicked off when Trump supporters started shoving and kicking protesters, a repeat of their performance at previous Trump rallies.

    Most of the physical intimidation is coming from the Trump side (in fact, all of it so far almost) - what would you suggest is the best way to counter a neo-fascist who is demanding physical attacks on the opposition at his rallies? Keeping quiet about it?

    So you only want to talk to people that already agree with you...
    You misunderstood. While yes polarizing is only binary in essence but its not in application. For example I meant polarizing people by intelligence. But it will also polarize people in other ways as well.

    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.
    Narcissists really do hate being belittled.

    How do we know that was actually him? Surely he's not sat on twitter now? Didn't they arrest him... ? Im not being sarcastic, I have only just found out about this.
    It is him, he hasn't tweeted since he's been arrested. Look at the video of the protester being escorted out that I posted on the first page and compare that his Twitter photos. That, and the fact he tweeted before the rally that he was going to disrupt it, is enough to assume it is him.

    I haven't watched every rally he's ever done. Got any examples?
    A quick Google search will help you. Here is a random link that I found within a few seconds.

    Such a low energy protester. He should be thankful the Donald didn't get his hands on him.

    That is almost self-implied within the definition of narcissism. So that was an incredibly indifferent observation. You're making a lot of undeveloped, half digested assumptions. While I am egotistical I am far from narcissistic.

    Claiming someone that is narcissistic is indirectly inferring that you are altruistic and that is innately wrong.

    He... Has. That's true. Like in Vegas, when someone picked a fight with his supporters and the security guard and Trump said to swing back.

    Of course this is just agreeing with you - When someone is threatened with violence, simply swing back and the problem will be solved. He has repeated several times that if someone swings, you should swing back - So Trump simply is repeating what you basically said.

    That's not what CNN is reporting.

    Unless you're suggesting the left-leaning CNN is being a shill for Trump.

    Can you quote source? Most of the violence is occurring at Trump rallies, suggesting that it is not, in fact, Trump's supporters who are starting it. But if you can show me your evidence that it's mostly Trump, I will accept it.

    I am no Trump supporter. I think he's using fear to get in to power, but the opposition are being far worse at the moment. If you want to stop Trump, you need to be less like Malcolm X and more like Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Non-violence is the only way to beat this sort of fear and hatred. Feeding in to it just makes it worse and justifies it just a little bit more.

    "Innately wrong" is an exaggeration. Nonetheless, like you take pride in your narcissism, I take pride in my altruism. Let us agree to disagree.

    Racism is prejudice and discrimination against people due to their race. He generalised Mexicans as lazy rapists, and said that there should be a wall to keep them out. How is that not racism? I am highly curious to know what your particular definition of racism is.
    "The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. [Applause] Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

    You can see there he was not generalising all Mexicans but the criminals from Mexico. This is why no one trusts lefties. You can't help lying.

    Another undeveloped -- half digested assumption. Never did I even suggest at taking pride in any narcissism you claim I have. Furthermore as animals we are innately apathetic beings, so claiming my point to be exaggerated is a mistake.

    Lastly, no.

    Replace muslims with jews and you have got yourself another hitler.
    What a ****ing ridiculous thing to say. That is literally offensive to Jewish people to compare the mass-extermination of Jews with a 'temporary suspension' of Muslim immigration into the USA.

    I'm more centre, actually.

    You cannot deny that he overshadowed that tiny statement at the end with the mainly negative points, which people will choose to focus on. And they have.
