    The Left has become dangerously unhinged.

    I do mean dangerous. These out of control haters are fast becoming mobs who will stop at nothing to destroy this country. They are vulgar and proud of it. Where does this evil come from? Blame this on Trump, too, I suppose?

    The new tactic is a blatant war on anyone who is not a member of their mob. Danger is here.

    Watch the haters zoom in with their personal attacks.

    Define what you perceive as "Left" and let's see how it develops from there.

    Fair enough?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Here in the United States it would be those who support the Democrat party. Those who want open borders, big government, and a lack of patriotism.

    That seems rather constrictive. What about those who are cynical of all parties in the US and don't align with your parameters and see some grey areas? It's not unpatriotic to be at odds with the administration is it? After all, plenty have voiced dissension where it comes to former presidents.

    Not included.

    As they should.

    Well, in a sense it certainly is although that's hardly a good thing as it's just simplistic labelling and pigeon holing.

    Not included.
    Why?

    Not included.
    Again, why? You're the one categorising people as "the left" so what exactly does that mean? Right now the terminology doesn't seem to have any meaning besides "not being included" in certain vague parameters of yours. Can you be more specific as to what constitutes a "leftist" and explain as to why?


    As they should.
    Several do now with the current administration. That doesn't make anybody a "leftist" by default does it?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Yeah, just 'Democrats,' generally. Who knows what 'left,' 'communist,' 'progressive,' etc. really mean anyway. We know what Democrats are.
    "Those who believe in Christ" are all the Christians, Catholic or not.

    'Liberals,' too. Who knows what that means? 'Liberal' could actually mean 'classical liberal,' which is distinct, and pretty decisively so, from whatever we might mean by 'liberal' nowadays, though it's not completely different, which makes it even more confusing.

    Just 'Democrats' will do, I think.

    The entire thread was just ill thought out as people can't be oh so neatly categorised.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Yep. One day they are progressive and now they're thinking they want to be socialists. I've never cared much for labels, but unhinged seems to fit quite nicely.

    Oh don't sell yourself short, you attempted to bracket people with the very title of this thread and you're hardly averse to referring to people as "libs" if they don't happen to agree with you on certain things either. Funny that there's no personal attacks in your direction, what went wrong there do you suppose?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    "Unhinged" is a perfect description of the left!

    They are so blind that they can't even see that their radical agenda is driving the undecided and the independents into the hands of the Republicans!

    All I hope is that their outrageous behavior doesn't lead to the death of any innocent people!

    A very fair assessment.

    Well, that was a very short-lived Danoh based honeymoon between you two.
