Ive reached a breaking point with those who continue to defend Donald Trumps endless brutishness.
If you went back in time a year, and asked Trump supporters if they would ever vote for a man who made fun of POWs, mocked the physically handicapped, compared another candidate to a child molester, and shifted positions as frequently as a fat guy in a church pew, they would have likely said No.
How did we get here? How did we get to a place where Trumps rhetoric and behavior is not only accepted, but emulated?
Donald Trump is a master manipulator. He came on the scene as a single issue candidate, with no other discernible positions. This was a necessity, because it allowed voters to fill in the rest with their own magic markers; the needs and ideas of millions of voters built Donald Trump from scratch. Thats why attributing any coherent policy position to the man is like trying to nail jello to a wall. His deliberately ambiguous and transitory rhetoric acts as a sort of scaffolding upon which anything can be built. This is a dangerous thing when you have an incredibly angry electorate.
When you pour yourself into an empty vessel, that vessel becomes personally linked to you. It harbors your needs, wants, and ideals in a way that nothing else can. Ultimately, what people see in Trump is their own reflection. When you see yourself in such a candidate, youre much more likely to justify, defend, and even emulate their behaviorno matter how deplorable.
Given this, it comes as no surprise that were beginning to see violence at Trump rallies. Donald himself has made numerous comments passively or directly condoning violence against those who defy him.

No, the left is assembling their thugs. None of the Chicago thugs were Trump people.
DNC playbook is as obvious as a Clinton lie.
Why, because angry-mommy-talk automatically means you're right?
I've reached a breaking point with little faggots who squeal every time Trump refuses to be politically correct.
Get the hell out.
Yo, Rob ... KMA.
Who is this p*ssy?
Is Donald Trump Creating a Mafia-Like Culture of Thug-followers?...
No but he is getting a large following of Oath Keepers.
“Videos in original. Donning asbestos underwear now.”
So Americans that want to “Make America Great Again” are called “thugs”.
Nice. Real nice.
Do you remember when Trump said, “I want you to argue with them and get in their face, and If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun?” Neither do I.
What won’t they charge him with?
At some point months ago, the media and others became public absurdities.
It’s labor union tactics.
violence against those who defy him.

Self defense against those who attack him.
