    If you showed up at one these political demonstrations carrying a sign saying:

    I DEMAND CALM AND REASONABLE DISCUSSION!!

    Which side would be most likely to beat you to death?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Both sides, because I read the word of God...........not Satan which controls both sides of the duality paradigm.


    Morality and values CANNOT come from society. Please think about it (aztecs, mayans, hitler, mao etc............I mean the list is endless).

    Your question is reminding me of the cover photos on this week's Time Magazine. (There is a foldout photo, and back cover photo, too.). The first photo shows protesters holding lots of picket signs with slogans. You can tell that these first protesters are supposed to be liberals. Then, in contrast, the second photo shows a lot of men and women, nicely dressed in business attire, with NO picket signs. And it made me think, you know, it's actually kind of true, that when conservatives protest something, a lot of them don't carry picket signs, they just march or whatever with no sign. Anyway, that's what I think the second photo is supposed to depict: conservatives. Has anybody else seen these Time photos?

    Why do people keep saying that? Do I have a sign on my back that says I want to play pokemon? It's always with the pokemon.

    I suppose it has more to do with who's there in particular; some conservatives are more violent than others, and some liberals are more violent than others. We tend to see more violence from one side or the other, depending on who's telling the stories.

    Also, watch out for the guy with silly string.^_^

    Hmm, that's a tough one. Let me try and logic it out.

    1. Beating someone is a crime.
    2. Only criminals wear masks to cover their faces in public.

    I'm gonna says it's the side with their faces covered.

    The one whose leader encouraged them to attack protesters, I suppose.

    At least that's the way it's been so far.

    Unless they attacked someone else first. Self-defense is not a crime. You just better be able to show that they attacked you first.

    Not in a free society. You can do that. Notice the alt-right, white nationalists, and KKK doing it, without being arrested. It's legal.

    Those guys do have a history of violence. So I suppose you're right.

    You're behind the times. It's been decades since the KKK was the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party. They've got new thugs working for them. Black is the new white.

    White nationalists are more in the Unite the Right now. They are the Neo-Nazi Trump supporters who chanted "Hail Trump!" and carried tiki torches while they march out in public.

    Now they're the terrorist arm of the republican party. They abandoned the democrats when the democrats passed the civil rights act.

    Oh, The Democrats passed the Civil Rights Act! Really? Was your history teacher drunk? You probably think the English bombed Pearl Harbor.

    Yep. LBJ sent it to Congress, and the democrat leadership got it passed. Every southern republican, and some northern republicans voted against it.

    LBJ signed it into law.

    Later on, Nixon saw his chance. In the words of his political advisor, Kevin Philips:

    From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don't need any more than that... but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.

    At my state's Second Amendment march, there were signs, and not a lot of the participants were wearing business attire. Lots of sloganed t-shirts and hats though.

    I've never been attacked by a Democrat, I have been by a Republican. I fully admit however that my experience certainly doesn't indicate a trend or a probability.
