    The problem with this is that no matter how much distance you put between "us" and "them", they will make it a point to move their rally, or organise a seperate rally, to your location and cause trouble. They have done it in the past. Then, when the media reports it, they will show how "violent" our rally was compared to their "peacefull" rally. Its all about propoganda!

    Right now, they are shooting themselves in the proverbial foot because, when they rally, there is violence and destruction. The vast majority of americans want to go to work, come home, raise their kids and live a relatively comfortable life. These are the "silent majority" that got Trump elected and have praised what he is doing. The left's rallys are completely opposite of this and hurt thier cause MUCH more than help it! Rallying against them is a very risky proposition with a good chance that the mainstream media, with the help of a counter rally, is going to twist our actions into causing the exact thing we are trying to show we are against!

    The best way to deal with a toddlers tantrums is to ignire them and, from what ive seen, the far left/antifa rallys appear to be nothing more than temper tantrums!

    Now what I would like to see is the police come in, bust some heads and arrest anyone who is breaking the law, then the courts throw the book at them! No more "We also gave those who wish to destroy space to do that as well" like the mayor of baltimore said during the riots for freddy gray!!!

    Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians!

    There are "groups" who insist on being with "us" that even take things to courts because they want to be where we are. I have never heard of some groups though suing to be able to live in some places while others want to be everywhere they are not wanted.

    All these protests are alienating regular people; not convincing more to join.

    I work in downtown Austin and saw a couple of the Trump derangement protests first hand. General consensus from my coworkers, who are mostly well left of center, was that the protests were annoying and pointless.

    It's not something you want to emulate.

    I doubt any left wing people getting off work want protesters blocking them from getting home, let alone any on the right.

    Let them protest. I think it just helps the right MUCH MORE. when many so called moderates see how some "people" act they get lots more conservative. No doubt many of those riots in 2016 only helped President Trump

    I'm thinking it's just a matter of time before a member of one side or the other, puts a firearm into the mix and then it's ON!

    Then you should be old enough to remember 1968.

    Seems like I recall a Dim shooting up a bunch of republicans at there baseball practice but I guess that is not included because the violence was against republicans.

    I just dont see a civil war happening like some have mentioned. There has already been violence at rallies, including an attack with a car / defending against violence with a car. And the shooting at the softball game.

    There are extremists on both sides. But I don't see me squaring off at high noon against my democrat brother in law over some antifag who might shoot a Trump supporter. I think Americans as a whole are much too smart to fall for that type stuff. Which is what got Trump elected to start with.

    The protests are part of the reason more and more moderates are moving to the right and burying the democratic party. Bring it!
