We're way too eager to define groups by their extremists. I'm as or more guilty than most. But it's never touched the unbelievable optimism I have for the human race - all of y'all. Every place I've lived - and I like to bounce around - chock full of good people. Ok, off my 'box.
 
Cheers.

I hate to disagree with you when you try to be nice...
 
Life happens. I think the libs have created a scenario where some
deranged people commit such violence BUT I don't believe every liberal
should have to take the blame for murder even though the oft used
response is "it's okay if that's what he wanted".
 
In fact I suspect any intelligent lib understands that killing hurts
more than helps.
 
If there is guilt it's that libs publicly condemn murder but litlle is
said about lawbreaking protestors.

> This is the outcome I fully expected. We've had years of stories of right wing violence - dude that shot giffords, dude that shot up that pizza joint, dude that stabbed the black soldier to death.
 
First, Loughner (the guy who shot Giffords) had nothing to do with the right wing. From what they could make of his nonsensical ramblings, he was closer to the left. Second, everyone, left and right, condemned these craven acts. It's telling that you could only come up with three, and didn't even mention the South Carolina and Atlanta Olympics. There are and have been just as many nutjobs on the left as right, from the Unabomber on down. And that doesn't even include the fact that it is far more likely for a left wing protest to turn violent. From what I can tell, claiming the right is more violent is just a projection from the left.

This would be more credible if members of their leadership didn't call
Republicans murderers on a daily basis.
 
Someone gave Bernie Sanders credit for his pro-forma denial. I say
bullshit. Just last week he accused Republicans of "murdering the
planet". When Gabby Giffords was shot he sent out fundraising emails
blaming right-wing rhetoric for the shooting, even though the shooter
was loony tunes and had been tracking Giffords for three years prior
to the shooting. An excerpt:
 
Nobody can honestly express surprise that such a tragedy finally
occurred. ... Congresswoman Giffords publicly expressed
concerns when Sarah Palin, on her website, placed her district
in the cross-hairs of a rifle -- and identified her by name
below the image -- as an encouragement to Palin supporters to
eliminate her from Congress. ... In light of all of this
violence -- both actual and threatened -- is Arizona a state
in which people who are not Republicans are able to participate
freely and fully in the democratic process? Have right-wing
reactionaries, through threats and acts of violence, intimidated
people with different points of view from expressing their
political positions? My colleague, Senator John McCain, issued a
very strong statement after the shooting in which he condemned
the perpetrator of the attack. I commend him for that. But I
believe Senator McCain and other Arizona Republicans need to do
more. As the elder statesman of Arizona politics McCain needs to
stand up and denounce the increasingly violent rhetoric coming
from the right-wing and exert his influence to create a civil
political environment in his state.
 
What gall. Now he calls Republicans murderers and right on schedule,
in the next couple of weeks, his campaign worker attempts to murder
Republicans.
 
Leading Democrats including Sanders, Warren, and Biden are routinely
calling Republcans murderers and terrorists. It is not surprising that
a Bernie-bro took it to heart.
 
Calling people who are skeptical about climate disaster "deniers",
likening them to Nazis. Calling yourself "the Resistance", again
likening your opposition to the Nazis. Rioting to prevent speech
by your opposition. The left is fascist, is to blame for the climate
of hate, and should feel ashamed of themselves.

I came up with those off the top of my head, doug, and provided an easy google suggestion for you to look at empirical evidence. Didn't even bother calling out all the doctors killed / clinics bombed by your true believers. That's just sort of ongoing for decades now - barely reported on - *expected*.
 
I'll give you the spoiler on that Google search I suggested. No group has committed more terrorist acts or killed more Americans than right wing whackos since 911.
 
Cheers.

Lefty that she is, Camille Paglia is quite perceptive:
 
Had Hillary won, everyone would have expected disappointed Trump
voters to show a modicum of respect for the electoral results as well
as for the historic ceremony of the inauguration, during which former
combatants momentarily unite to pay homage to the peaceful transition
of power in our democracy. But that was not the reaction of a vast
cadre of Democrats shocked by Trump's win. In an abject failure of
leadership that may be one of the most disgraceful episodes in the
history of the modern Democratic party, Chuck Schumer, who had risen
to become the Senate Democratic leader after the retirement of Harry
Reid, asserted absolutely no moral authority as the party spun out of
control in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite. Nor were there
statesmanlike words of caution and restraint from two seasoned
politicians whom I have admired for decades and believe should have
run for president long ago -- Senator Dianne Feinstein and
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. How do Democrats imagine they can ever
expand their electoral support if they go on and on in this self-
destructive way, impugning half the nation as vile racists and
homophobes?
 
And yesterday we reaped the results of this failure of leadership.

Congratulations to Vacated University, Indianapolis for winning its first NCAA Division I men's basketball title - the 2013 one formerly held by Louisville.
 
Okay, Pitino says he's going to appeal the national title loss, but even he admits some of the players on that team received illegal benefits (insert "is that what they're calling it now?" joke here), and I can't remember when the NCAA didn't vacate wins where ineligible players were used.
 
Note that since all of the ineligible players on that team will have used up their NCAA eligibility by now, they get to keep their rings, but the school has to give back the NCAA trophy, and take down any title banners (as well as any other NCAA tournament banners from 2012-2015, I think).
 
Oh, and before anyone asks, no, Michigan does NOT get to claim the title because it lost to Louisville in the final that year.

I think I might find some agreement if I said government is a little
