Well, that’s bizarre

As I mentioned a while back, I am a politics junkie. I have friends who teach at UIC and were at the protests tonight (all are okay, it seems). But I’m trying to figure out if violence is continuing, or dying out — decided to switch on the TV. Dad left the TV set on TNT, and guess what’s on: Richard Armitage in The Desolation of Smaug.

Servetus denounces violence associated with electoral processes and calls on all the candidates to denounce tonight’s violence — not just Trump, all the candidates, since supporters of at least one Democratic candidate were vocally represented tonight — to denounce violence in association with campaign rallies. Not that they are listening to me.

  1. These violent incidents really disturb me. We don’t need fisticuffs and manhandling going on. It’s like an episode of a reality TV show . . . and it’s one of the reasons why I don’t watch much reality TV. 😦

  2. I began the day watching the funeral of Mrs. Reagan and was struck by her civility towards people who were on the opposite political spectrum. Then this evening it feels like 1968 all over again, with a dose of the Jerry Springer show thrown into the mix. I wasn’t a fan of the Reagans when I was younger. They were so terribly conservative. Today, I fear, they would be accused of being Rinos.

  3. I think it’s going to continue. People are pissed especially Trump supporters. Their support of Trump pisses me off in turn. Round and round we go. Where it all stops, nobody knows.

  4. I hope I am wrong, but I don’t think it is going to stop until someone dies at one of the Trump events. Even then, I doubt he will ever take any responsibility for stoking the fires.

    • I don’t think he will either because it’s a life pattern of his to apportion responsibility elsewhere. Depressing.

      • The leopard isn’t likely to change his spots at this point. Not when he can continue to blame all those “tacky, horrible losers” out there. :/
        I find that I cringe every time I see his face, much less hear or read about the man these days. And I admit I continue to be appalled at people in my acquaintance who are buying into what he is selling.
