This is like the Vietnam era protests!

Just remember, it could be argued that the protests of that time period didn't exactly translate into political victories for Democrats. In fact, what we saw in the aftermath of all of those protests and mass organizing of the liberal cause was massive electoral college landslide victories for Richard Nixon over anti-war candidate George McGovern and Ronald Reagan over two liberal Democrats. The only Democrat who won during that time period was the Southern born again Baptist Jimmy Carter. Perhaps that is something worth remembering for those excited about the current protests and riots? 


Liberals like to suggest that Trump protests rival the Vietnam era protests!

You are absolutely full of shit. With a very few exceptions, these have been peaceful. The demonstrations in the 1970's were in opposition to the war in Vietnam, and some of the were the Black power groups. I was an adult, when these wee going on. You may have been in junior high or even grade school.

A lo of those in the seventies were violent. Hell, you would probably want to see a repeat of Kent State. Four dead i O Hi O . Crosby, Stills Nash and Young.

I saw them about 12 years ago in Staples Center.

You are hoping that this won't turn into a major political movement. Most pundits laughed at the Tea Party

Most Americas support.

A $15.00 minimum wage.
B: A majority support the ACA.
C: A majority support an increase of the tax rates on the top 5%.
D: Donald Trump's approval ratings are the lowest in recorded history.
E: Most people support equal wages for equal work.

The list could go on forever. If the Democrats find someone to make the case for the Democrats, and get the younger voters and get the blue collar workers back where they belong. Because ever since the election of Saint Ronald of the Reagan the middle class has been left behind.

And to total is up, you ae intentionally ignoring the Flyyn issue because the facts would make the people to see how incompetent President Trump is. It is the biggest political scandal since WaterGate.

Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence before the election.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/14/us/politics/russia-intelligence-communications-trump.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=span-ab-top-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0

WASHINGTON — Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.

American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time that they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.

The officials interviewed in recent weeks said that, so far, they had seen no evidence of such cooperation.

But the intercepts alarmed American intelligence and law enforcement agencies, in part because of the amount of contact that was occurring while Mr. Trump was speaking glowingly about the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin. At one point last summer, Mr. Trump said at a campaign event that he hoped Russian intelligence services had stolen Hillary Clinton’s emails and would make them public.

The officials said the intercepted communications were not limited to Trump campaign officials, and included other associates of Mr. Trump. On the Russian side, the contacts also included members of the Russian government outside of the intelligence services, the officials said. All of the current and former officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the continuing investigation is classified.

"This is like the Vietnam era protests!"

Exactly.

The Vietnam anti-war rioters were comprised mostly of cowards, scared to death they might have been drafted.

The cowardly rioters today are scared to death they might have to move out of their parent's basement and actually do something productive.

The anti-war riots backfired then, the riots will backfire today.

Average, hard working Americans recoil at the sight of foreign flags, and foreigners, spoiled college know-nothings stomping and burning the American flag.

I'm hoping they keep rioting.

Roger - the fact of the matter is that while those involved in those protests believed that they were making a difference and while history loves to glamorize the flower children and their causes...

Politically it was a disaster for the Democrats to be associated with it. But, of course, this time it's different... right? This time it will help them, huh? Because people find real inspiration in pussy hats, starting fires at colleges, and celebrities dreaming about blowing up the White House an inspiration to everyone.

The only thing Roger knew about the Vietnam anti-war protests is what he saw on tv.

He didn't live through jackshit.

I wouldn't start gloating quite yet...

What's actually going on, and what's coming, is far, far over your junior high school brain.

The current protests are closer to the Tea Party movement. Both were a reaction to a President misreading his mandate (which in both cases was obtained due to the weakness of his opponent) as an approval of a radical agenda to fundamentally transform America.

Just wondering if the Tea Party ever got support from major donors, the mainstream media, and former Presidents of the United States.

KD, Obama never Raised the min Wage in 8 years said...

Really, when did that movement call for the shooting of Police Officers, when did that movement cause over $100,000 in damage to a College Campus.

Nope, Ette is right, this is a snowflake astro turfing bs.

That is ok, keep burning the US Flag, waive the flags of Dictators.

The Tea Party did secure support from major donors, Fox News (part of the mainstream media), and most former Republican Presidents were dead already.

GayD thinks he's made a point, but he's really only managed to highlight yet another similarity between the anti-Trump patriots and the Tea Party movement: Both were misrepresented by dishonest supporters of the overreaching extremist social engineering President.

In the case of the Tea Party, one person yells the N-word and the whole movement is racist. In the case of the anti-Trump patriots, some anarchists show up to riot and the whole movement is violent.
