From what I've been seeing/reading on the television/internet, (I don't watch television, just use it as a means to obtain information), to what I've been hearing being discussed among peers/coworkers, it looks to me that emotions are being pushed to the breaking point. People are willing to resort to violence to get their point across. Just read this article and thought I'd share this.

This is one of the many reasons why we've been preparing. Stay safe everyone.

Bummer. A blizzard of angry snowflakes.

Hopefully Trump can unify the country with jobs and American (melting pot) nationalism; mutts with a purpose.

Civil unrest has been building for years. The question is not when it will start but when it will stop and how bad it will get until it does.

I'm gonna say that we've already gone over that precipice; people in general just don't realize it. For the last year, we've had attacks on police, rioting, looting, physical attacks on opposition members, and overt attempts to over throw the Constitutional process. There's nothing to say that order couldn't be restored. I just have little faith that the left, and their fellow travelers will allow that to happen w/o an increase in violence.

The Justice Department is not going to turn a blind eye to rioters as was done for the last 8 years. I don't think Trump will sit on his hands and watch cities burn.

The emotional tantrums are going to fade and soon become yesterday's news.

There are malcontents distributed throughout the country. They have ceased camouflaging their real intentions and are outwardly advocating revolution by violence. There are ominous signs that the rule of law will be attacked. If we create an image of these people as weak, we do not do ourselves any favors. The snowflakes are a diversion. There are plenty of leftist radical groups who are willing and able to traffic in terrorism. They will rationalize that violence is the only way to achieve utopian peace.

Really, it has never been more important to be prepared for the breakdown of civility than now.

This stuff is only happening where the snowflakes stack deep. We are good here in Texas.

No worries here in SW Florida. Here there are decisive consequences for causing people to fear for their lives or great bodily harm and almost everyone has the means and the freedom to deliver those consequences.

Hard to live with the dems...it is their way or it is their way...no middle ground. The dems only hope is to bring down Trump with lies and sedition.

The dems are left with defending and promoting terrorist immigration, trying to convince Americans that a man with a penis is a woman, don't build a border wall or even have borders, populating the US with illegal aliens, confiscating guns, killing babies, defying federal law, sedition and treason. That is the dems formula for Making America Great Again!

We can be very happy that the dem states all have disarmed their populace to a great degree. If the want a war so be it, but I think they are outgunned.

Just people expressing their opinions. I don't see any true, far-reaching civil unrest.

I don't see such an event happening, especially now that the new sheriff is in town. The Left controls a majority of the media outlets and of course will concentrate on sensationalism and promoting their agenda. They'll continue their dishonesty but millions of us now have the evidence to back our claims that the Left colluded with the media to control both the message and the people. The media operates in the same detached manner the Democrats do, not giving a damn about anyone that's not their liberal, bi-costal buddies. They forget or ignore the common man in the "flyover states" and it bit them in the ass this time!

If you want to see the real direction in which this country is now heading, just look at the last election map. The damn thing had more red on it than a Chicago emergency room floor on a hot summer night! And since Obama was elected, the Democrats have lost over a thousand political positions in state and federal governments. There are more of "us" than there are of them, and when the rioters come marching down our streets throwing fire bombs at our homes and attacking innocent people that don't agree with their Socialist agenda, "us" won't be using water cannons and pepper spray for crowd control. (And seriously, when has screaming and repeating silly rhymes ever changed policy?)

Trump won the electoral, and damn near the popular vote. States that rarely if ever voted anything but Democrat, fell like dominos to Trump. Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, hell, even Minnesota almost went for Trump! I'm not naive enough to believe that our troubles as a country are over because after all, it's still run by politicians, but I do believe a new direction has arrived for us. A vast majority of working Americans are finally fed up with paying thousands of their hard earned dollars into a government they have no say in, and doesn't represent them. We're sick and tired of seeing our taxes misspent, wasted, sent to other countries, and paying for citizens here that can work but won't. We're tired of being lied to, of being told we're "vile, evil people" because we think it's completely unacceptable to allow a gender "confused" person to use the bathrooms where our children go. We're tired of being ridiculed and attacked because we choose to believe in God. We're tired of seeing our children leave schools indoctrinated and more ignorant than when they started. We're sick to death of Political Correctness, and of having our Constitutional rights trampled like Walmart shoppers on Black Friday. The lies and propaganda of the Progressive Left are exposed, and not only was the emperor naked, he had a little ****!

Clinton(s) and Obama did more to promote the Conservative cause than any Republican ever could. They proved to America their Socialst agenda doesn't work here, just as it doesn't work any where in world. Hillary's arrogance and ignorance were on full display for the world to see when her and Podesta's emails were hacked and released. You know how we could tell they were truthful? Because the Democratics attacked the messenger, not the message, to distract from the terrible things they say and do!

I think (pray) if Trump does all that he promised to do, especially term limits, building the economy and securing our country, he'll get another term. If we continue to achieve what we will without government burden and control, Pence could be next. And if the Democrats continue to blame their issues on everyone and everything but themselves, they might not regain any power for decades.

One can dream it can happen!

Paid protesters don't equal civil war.

Some cities are already slow-motion riots. Have been for years.

I don't see wide spread civil unrest.

YMMV of course. In which case - have you moved yet?

Some posters here are very uncomfortable having to pick a side in this (even if it does not become a Hot Culture War.

I'm not at all uncomfortable picking sides. I'm on the side of a safer, wealthier America where we're not involved in other country's civil and religious wars and then get stuck paying for not only those wars but rebuilding infrastructure, training and supplying armies and police who later use that training and supplies against us, and handing over billions of our taxpayer dollars to dictators ostensibly to feed, clothe, house and provide medical care for their own downtrodden. Treading people in your own country down is quite profitable for dictators, you know. And we know that the vast majority of that money, if any at all, ever buys food, clothing, medicine or anything else for their downtrodden. If anything, it goes to their armies and to make themselves even wealthier. We've paid so much money to these foreign governments over the decades that there shouldn't even BE any downtrodden, starving children and people dying from simple hangnails.

I'm tired of scads of people coming here illegally and getting so many benefits that their quality of life is better than the average working person who, by the way, has NO access to those benefits if/when they need them. Told 'just shut up and pay your taxes'.

It's time for jobs to benefit OUR country and NOT places like India, because THEIR economy is no longer in a shambles. Their pharmaceutical industry alone is worth billions of dollars. No, those funds need to stay HERE, and the jobs need to stay here.

It's time for America to stop paying billions of dollars to countries that hate us and want us all dead. And it's time to stop funding muslim dictatorships that have as one of their agendas the genocide of Christians and Jews.

No, I'm not at all uncomfortable or shy about saying what side I'm on. Right is right and canNOT be equivocated away.
