The complete inability to see how silly you look, is the first and most important qualification for every extremist.

The ability to really see how silly you look, is the main qualification for being introverted.

And the ability to see how silly you look and not care, makes you a pain in everyone else's behind.

(Wonder if Pain-in-the-behind would make a better user name ?)

They think they are funny when they kill people.

Liberals had better lay down the anti-religious argument and merely address the Catholic/Evan Christian idea that we are in a battle much like Ai (Numbers 31). There are many similarities, especially if the religious community sees DJT as a modern Joshua.

That the religious embrace DJT tells you all you need to know about them and their animosity to rationality.

@Willow_Wisp I think it tells us that this is the actual battle, this is what they are concerned with, so handing them political arguments won't work.

@rainmanjr
It is time for action.
Which is what peaceful protest for BLM and women and LGBT+ rights etc.
The more violent the right gets the more we show them to be wrong.
Today, there's the left side and the wrong side.

No kidding.
You mean Trump, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Kim Jong-un, Saddam Hussein, Robert Mugabe, Fidel Castro, Chiang Kai-shek, Idi Amin, Bashar al-Assad, Ferdinand Marcos, Francisco Franco, Ho Chi Minh, and on and on endlessly... weren't funny?
They are funny in an ironic, mocking way, but none of them would have made it in comedy.
I see no difference in right wing authoritarians and left wing authoritarians.
