You're right, Eynon! By George! In labeling atheists/secular progressives/liberals enemies of America, they're not calling for their destruction physically or otherwise, they're just calling for.... tell us, what are they calling for? What do we do to enemies of America?

Are you claiming they are simply saying "Don't invite them to your barbecues"? What do they mean, Eynon, when they use that label? Like when Ted said that Ellen Page was a liberal fascist victimizing good Christian Americans?

See, you can't have it both ways: use the rhetoric and then when something happens scurry away and claim it had nothing to do... with the rhetoric.

Actually I've never called myself a liberal. What I'm glib about is obvious bullshit.

At least Trump's drooling white-power crowd take the cues, like the guy who confronted Ramos after he was tossed and told him to get out of "my country," even though Ramos is a citizen. Or those two guys who beat the crap out of that homeless Latino--also a citizen--because they are "passionate" about their white, Christian country.

You don't get to do that: play dumb when it comes to all the nationalist, xenophobic and militant rhetoric and then pretend there's not incitement going on.

You don't need to destroy anybody to fight racism. You don't need to destroy anybody to effect socio-economic change, which is a huge component of white privilege.

So are you going to answer or what? What is the proper course of action for Americans to take against those who have been deemed "enemies" of America, fascists and/or people who are persecuting Christians?" You know, with their war on Christianity? Are you saying those pimping this war on Christianity aren't goading their dupes followers to fight back? Fight back how? What do you think they mean?

As I pointed out earlier, Trump's supporters get the message--that's a big 10-4. They immediately sprang to action, beating the crap our of a Latino homeless dude.
