More anti-Trump projections of hatredsteemCreated with Sketch.

The main question here :

When did it become acceptable, in political discourse, to show the world that because some did not get their way that they can insinuate a desire for the death of their political opponents?

In the roughly 20 years that I've been politically active and aware, I have definitely seen some varying levels of hatred towards the leaders. However, I have never seen the sheer volume of actual threats, and in cases even actual violence, against people merely for being on opposite ends of the political spectrum.

What has changed?

There probably isn't a simple, or single, answer but it's something I've noticed too. My vote would go to social media as the thing that has changed. Right after the election my feed was full of posts of rage. I don't choose my friends based on politics but I was appalled by how the (seemingly) nicest people were so full of hate and felt it was okay (justified? supported? encouraged?) to express it. Even a mild comment such as 'let's give the man a chance' provoked outrage. I worry for them, all that hyperventilating can't be good for their health.

Social media probably played a role in how quickly and widespread that hatred was allowed to fester.

The media in general was not helping either, where everything Trump said was treated as violence against some person or group. Calling everything he says lies, etc.

It almost is not a surprise that there is a segment of the US population that truly believes that they are witnessing the second coming of Hitler. What is surprising to me is the extent of this vitriol.

Okay, I'll split my vote between social media and the media in general. I knew there was trouble ahead when it was deemed that speech equaled violence. I have never seen our country this polarized. It's getting to the point where you're not allowed to have a middle-ground position.
The second coming of Hitler is about right. No doubt in their minds that's so, and they are truly afraid of that. What I would like to say to them is that if he were the man they think he is things would be a lot quieter. He complains about the media, he isn't arresting and executing them as Hitler and Stalin did. Let's get a little historical perspective people before you get all crazy. I hope it's not too late for that.

I honestly expect that Trump will do something to completely vindicate himself, and prove that if anything he's been a victim.

Already, there has been the #walkaway that had the numbers to be 3rd top trending for about a week, but Twitter was keeping it off.

It's to the point where I sometimes wish Trump was doing something clearly wrong, then it would feel more balanced. But even then, going to the middle still manages to push people to the extremes..

My mother told me that the reason we don't discuss politics or religion in polite company is because both are based in beliefs, not facts. But suggesting that they are 'only' beliefs gets people riled up.
Right now we have tons of 'facts' flying around but some are hidden and some are twisted and some are just plain made up. (Oh wait, that would make them 'lies' wouldn't it?)
I had to look up #walkaway. According to what I read it's totally bogus, aimed at disrupting the coming elections, being promoted by conservatives and Russian bots! Which leads me to believe you have your facts right.
My personal belief is that we will find that Trump is the victim, that someone or many someones have a lot invested in having him fail. I have no specific conspiracy theory to offer, it just feels like a set-up to me.

Well, I get the intent of not discussing politics, because it can get pretty heated. If things can be kept to facts and the common ground, it's not usually so bad, but people need to be able to gauge reactions. It's usually not the facts that cause problems, but what people believe about the facts.

Now, more and more it looks like the media outlets aren't even reporting on the same facts, or you can read opposing views of the same event, and the stories are so different that you can't even find the common facts between them.

Then, with Twitter, Twitter says they banned like 59million "bots", but it's mostly people of right wing views that start getting traction level of an audience. The walk away people are mainly democrats, who are moderate or only mildly political. There are many people that have posted their own YouTube vids ... The crazy part, some of these people might get 200-300 views on their average videos, but will have 60-70k views about walking away.

The part I can't say concretely is the exact rank, because people were showing the Twitter numbers for the different hashtags that were trending at the same time. Not my own individual research, so, while they are generally accurate, they are still human.

Sorry if this comes across as preachy, not my intent, was raised Catholic but stopped being active. I truly believe that the world was / is at a crossroads, where one side means we get to fulfill revelations and on the other is the chance at an enlightened future. So, really, I feel that we are witness to a true battle of good vs evil. (Search Georgia guide stones to see opposite perspective)

While money is a factor, it is ultimately power and control that is at stake. Whichever side wins now, with technologies at play, it will never flip back.

Facts and beliefs, and beliefs about "facts" - there's the start of the tangle!

Preachy? Not at all.
This subject deserves thinking about, considering the sides and the angles and which parts fit together. I'd like to think if something 'rings true' then it probably is, but it's not guaranteed!

I'd not heard of the Georgia guidestones. Interesting.

So, you think that the battle between good and evil is more intense now? And that whichever side wins now will be the victor from now on? (If I'm reading that right.) I would hope that isn't so and that there are and ever will be good people willing to keep the good struggle going.

When I was just out of high school, I still remember where you could prefer FOX or CNN (or whichever of the big 5) and while there was different biases, you could at least have enough common ground to engage in a discussion of pros and cons of the different positions. Now, sometimes I will read multiple news articles on a single topic; it's to the point where sometimes the different perspectives will be irreconcilable. Someone MUST be lying because not everyone can be telling the truth.

As far as good and evil; in my limited perspective, it's less that the battle of good and evil is more intense. I would say more that, that battle is reaching an end game stage.

On one hand; we are seeing an increase in surveillance, government controls, destruction of family bonds, etc...

Yet, simultaneously, we are seeing more examples of medical breakthroughs, the exposure of corruption world wide, the breakup of pedophilia and other human trafficking rings.

The way I see it is that; whatever the conclusion at this point, either the world will be turned over to good and the corruption that has been around for most of human history will be blocked from regaining the type of control we have seen in the past. Or, if evil takes over, there will never be another opportunity so long as those systems remain intact for good forces to gain enough traction to offset this.

I like the Star Trek analogy; where we are today will either lead humanity into a future that looks like Star Fleet, or a future where our society will be like the Borg.

Much of it is cognitive dissonance and a reliance on the old "tell a vision box!" Just about everywhere you go, someone has a news station playing. Even fox is partially owned and controlled by Soros. There is only One news station that is independently owned. . .One America News. You can see a big difference if you watch them just for a short while.

The rest can be explained by the fact that we are fighting a literal spiritual battle the bible told us about.

You can see much of it play out. The Cabal (powers that be) come from the luciferians in the form of central bankers that are of the wealthiest among us. People like the Rothschilds who have been orchestrating wars while funding Both sides and making a killing! Remember how a Rothschild started the League of Nations and a Russian Czar told the other countries what the Rothschild family was up to? Interesting stuff because the Roths vowed to get vengeance and boy did they ever!

That League still exists in the United Nations. These people for globalism are part of the UN or an arm of the UN in the form of those councils, like the Council on Foreign Relations. The UN heralded and published materials from people like Alice Bailey whose trust was literally called the Lucifer Trust before she changed the name. Even under that telling name she was sending her cohorts into churches to worship right along side people who believed in the true God. These luciferians would profess believe in God, but the god they were really speaking of is satan.

All of these controllers of the Cabal have placed people in the media and in places of power both at the local and federal level. They Despise Trump because he cannot be bought. He is Not one of them. He was chosen by the White Hats comprised of some of the generals Obama picked off, he is aware of the pedophilia, child and human sex trafficking, and all their other wicked corruption.

Now these people are encouraging those whom they have brain washed or are susceptible to brainwashing that Trump is evil. They do is as if they are crying out like the demonic element fearful of being exposed as they know Trump Intends to shed light on their dark, evil ways.

People have been brainwashed by the media, educational system and of course the DNC which it has been revealed in the wikileaks that they were going for a "dumbed down society!" How those who have not walked away, don't take offense at this or see what they are up to, is beyond me!

Wow... so much I could add to...

If you are sitting at one of the pope's sermons, he appears as though he is speaking from the mouth of a snake, because of the shape of the building.

Hollywood is in panic mode; the Don of that mafia got nabbed (Weinstein), Allison Mack has already led to 5-6 major arrests related to the NXIVM sex cult, people are coming out everyday against Hollywood people. If the corruption there is near as rampant as I expect...

People are sometimes confused as why a Canadian could support Trump... but they don't seem to realize that this is literally good vs evil. I mean Trump has his quirks, but he's not out to screw people over.

Anyway, wish I could give like 5 thumbs up.

You are correct on the subject of the pope. I come from a (society's word) Christian background. So got to see those genuinely trying to adhere to what God intended, all of course still making mistakes because we live in an imperfect world, then those whom by actions appeared to be fakes. I suppose it is this way in many aspects of life.

I don't mean to sound preachy either nor judgy as perhaps those seeming fake didn't really understand what good and evil was truly all about and so were trying to stumble their way through. I suppose most of us humans can relate to that in this crazy, mixed up world.

You have the scope and sequence of the big picture down. Glad to see you guys on here are so awake, informed and are looking at the Bigger picture as so many get stuck on one or two single points and a bird's eye view.

The Pope and connections to luciferianism and all the pedophilia being brought to the forefront. . .spot on! I can't discount my own background and the infiltration in the "christian" sector. You see some wavering or justifying evil when you're young, and for me I kept trying to rectify the dichotomy in my immature mind. . .I would think I must be hearing or seething that wrong when I saw something completely opposite of what I had been taught.

Generally it was the actions of people who claimed they believed one thing, then did another and little to nothing was said about it. I started thinking maybe I wasn't completely grasping something I had been taught. Satan knows this not only causes doubt in true believer's minds, but makes people turn away from Godly things. Those that end up despising God due to what appear to be hypocrisy, is because of what men and women have done to distort what God created for good. It is the MO of satan as could be seen in the very first chance of disobedience in he garden of Eden. Satan is an expert at enticing and making people doubt God, God's goodness and intentions.

I suppose it's the old. ..if you have your eyes on men and their actions, you will get disillusioned quick. So true because we are all very fallible and susceptible to mistakes if we aren't relying on God's help to keep us from temptations and disobedience to God's ways.

Anyways, I'll stop rambling here. . .took years before I realized, no, I wasn't just seeing things wrong. People were not always adhering to truth. Really what it was, was people giving into the enticements and temptations of the deceiver then trying to sweep it under the rug.

When you have a love a desire for truth and for goodness to prevail, you begin realizing you don't want to live in a world like that! Topsy, Turvy where nothing makes sense. You begin to see clearly satan does all of that intentionally to keep everyone confused, wear people down and continue his great deception.

Glad a Canadian is supporting Trump. It is true, many have No idea how many attempts the cabal has made on his life and All Trump does that has threatened their control. This is why they teach people to shout hatred and even resort to violence over Trump, then they blame Trump for Their actions. Incredibly diabolical.

Very much like the Rules for Radicals Saul Alinsky wrote (Soros, Obama and Hillary all fans) . Whatever you are doing. . .blame the other side. That's just One of the rules. The rest sound like they came from Aliester Crowley.

You all have great comments. Enjoyed reading them! Stay true to truth and keep #FightingTheGoodFight . Godspeed!
