  1. Lot of hate goin on

    I wonder how much difference there is between burning a cross on a front lawn as burning Trump signs on the front lawn?

    A lot of hate is involved either way. 

    I have seen videos of Trump voters at campaign rallies beaten and bloodied.and chased because…well… they support Donald Trump for president. The Chicago Trump campaign rally last spring was shut down because of violence against Trump supporters. 

    Then there's the Veritas video tapes showing Democratic party activists explaining how they send their people to incite violence at Trump rallies. They call it birddogging. Really scary stuff.

    Vote responsibly.

    1. Meanwhile

      Trump calls one of his supporters a "thug" and has him removed from a rally for no other reason than….he was Black.
      Trump encourages his supporters to vote more than once and sure enough at least one of them does and is caught!

      Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

      But yeah, make sure you vote responsibly.

      1. You seem to be saying that it
        You seem to be saying that it’s okay to bully Trump supporters, simply because the man says things that you don’t like. Your attitude is all too common, and the reason why Trump supporters in liberal areas like Evanston are in the “Trump closet.”
        Recall that back in back in March, Trump supporters were so outnumbered, and protesters were so “rowdy” that the rally planned for the UIC Pavilion was cancelled. UIC security intentionally let in protesters (they were so numerous that they had the run of the seats on the balcony and in the center on the main level.) Multiple websites used by Chicago police have discussions mentioning that police were given the order to stand down. (Second City Cop is one, in the interest of offering a citation on that claim.) When one group will go so far to prevent another group from exercising political speech, it’s a pretty big deal.
        I’d like to request your source for the claim that Trump told his supporters to vote more than once. Something other than Huffington Post, if you can manage it.
        In regard to the “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” it is important to remember that it is only intended to stay in effect “until our nation’s representatives can figure out what […] is going on.” It shouldn’t take long at all to figure this out, truthfully. The way accusations of xenophobia, racism, misogyny, and other “-isms” are thrown around, they are meaningless ad-hominem slurs.
        I look forward to November 9th, when everyone can put the ugliness behind themselves and go back to all being in this together. We can all remember that no matter who wins, they will disappoint and betray the American people.

        1. Voting more than once

          As far as encouraging people to “vote twice”.  Trump appears to have no clue how voting works in Colorado.

          He stated:
          “They’ll give you a ballot, a new ballot. They’ll void your old ballot, they will give you a new ballot. And you can go out and make sure it gets in,” he said. “In some places they probably do that four or five times. We don’t do that. But that’s great.”

          Many interpreted that as a call to cast two ballots for Trump, but he’s saying only one of those two votes should be counted. The mail-in vote will be voided so that the Colorado voter can submit a single, reliable in-person vote for Donald J. Trump.

          That sounds reasonable, but that’s not how voting works in Colorado. The Colorado Secretary of State’s office told Fox 31 Denver that people cannot change their votes. They can choose to vote in person rather than submitting their mail-in ballot, but once a clerk has received their ballot it cannot be changed.

          So the upshot is that if you follow Trump's advice, you will have voted twice because they will NOT "void" your previous ballot.  

           

      2. Yeah “Johnson,” pretty much
        Yeah “Johnson,” pretty much none of what you claim is actually true but keep spouting that party line for Hillary. Don’t worry: even though it won’t matter in Illinois, I’ll be sure to vote responsibility.

        1. “pretty much none are true?”

          That leaves some that -in your own opinion- ARE true.
          Oh, and The Ku Klux Klan’s official publication, The Crusader, expressed its support for Trump and for his call to “make America great again.”  So he's got that going for him as well.

           

      3. Way more Hillary signs were stolen on same block earlier
        Way more Hillary signs were stolen on same block earlier in October – come to think of it, our Obama signs were stolen in ’08. Us Reese people are activists.

  2. Theres more of that liberal

    Theres more of that liberal tolerance on display!

    Coexist….as long as we agree on everything!!
