There is a Trump cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.

I guess the draft dodger in chief does not believe in free speech or the right of citizens to petition their government for redress of grievances. The sooner he is gone the safer the whole planet will be!!

The proposal primarily calls for restitution for Damages & security for protesting, What the heck is wrong with that?
Mara Verheyden-Hillard of the "Civil Justice Fund" has an issue when people are "Uncivil"? She & others need to check their dictionary for Civility.
Why should Jane & John Doe in Iowa, Wyoming, Texas, Maine & elsewhere pay for damages & security that THEY create?
They are still allowed to protest, they simply need to NOT destroy property or get FREE security. What's wrong with that? WHINERS !!

Not overly interested in the protests. The Dems know what they did. This is bluster. When the day is done, nobody in "Mommy and her autistic kiddies" land will not do diddly about anything. All the money is going to the rich and to the drug companies to keep the gays alive.

Go ahead and go nuts. Do it!

Right, those ugly people with masked faces that attack old men, and old women are the epitome of intellect. BTW, America is not a Democracy, she is Representative Republic, big difference. Did you finish H S, Spocko?

He believes in free speech but at a safe distance! No need for them to disrupt everyone else's lives and businesses so they can claw at the fence and cry like whiners. Grow up !

No, a disgruntled criminal killed the woman in S C, and he will pay for his crime. He wasn't even registered to vote one way or the other.

The Trump supporter mob in Charlottesville sowed up with with weapons and torches and killed a girl by driving a car into the Trump protester crowd. And you can keep twisting facts into pretzels ...

We seem to be ignoring so many riots, and permitting people clothed, and masked like Satan worshippers to do as they please in the name of protests. I hope we can elect enough Republicans to begin putting them where they belong. Not in the streets.

These huge Liberal protests are destroying the planet and environment.

In the wake of these large violent Liberal protests the planet and environment suffers as Liberals destroy property - destroy parks - leave thousands of pounds of food and garbage behind - leave piles of human waste - waste mass amounts of fuel to attend - consume mass comodities in attendance - tax power grids and generally waste man power and goods. All for possible votes.

Like a swarm of thousands of locust, they leave nothing but barren waste land behind further impacting the environment and planet's health. The environmental impact of these violent Liberal gatherings flies in the face of concern for the planet.

Why are Liberal opinions always so angry and violent ? Seems to be all Liberals want for America now - incivility and violence.

Liberal anger stems from the fact that a narcissistic psychopath is commander-in-chief, and that people like you fall for his treachery.

Republican anger stems from people pulling the word "fact" out of their bu# and waving the word "narcissistic" around as if it applies to anyone else in the room other than him.
