Wed Jul 17, 2019, 11:30 PM

The "send her back" chant at Trump's rally was a new low. It's not only chilling, it's depressing.

It's depressing for this reason: even if good prevails, and the Republicans are absolutely trounced in the next election, the next day we will still have to live in country where about 30-35% of our fellow citizens are fascists.

10. Anyone else think it might not have been fully spontaneous?

When I heard clips on MSNBC, I couldnít help wondering if there were people planted in the audience who started it. That, or operatives suggested it as the crowd filled the room. Iíve seen talk shows recorded and there are people paid to guide the audience response. It doesnít seem far-fetched to think that might have occurred here.

11. Only # of people at rally did that. There are many who

Support him that are not horrible people. They just don't pay attention and they are doing well financially. They won't switch if we scare them with a zillion $ program.

12. This kind of saturation hate-propaganda is dangerous

It was dangerous in Germany between the wars

It was dangerous in the former Yugoslavia as that region came apart

And it was dangerous in Rwanda

13. It's called consciousness. We can live with it. That's how America grows up, grows in wisdom.

And grows new stories of itself FOR itself and the world.

Even comes to be the first great country to make reparations and write a new moral standard for the world.

14. To me it's just more of the same

Itís not depressing or chilling itís just a repeat performance of a very tired script. His words have become irrelevant to me. And I knew his supporters were bottom of the barrel lowlifes 4 years ago in the summer of 2015 when he announced. Nothing has changed there.

What has changed is my desire to see him defeated. That continues to grow steadily. Sometimes I allow myself to fantasize about how it all ends, but none of us can linger in that place for long. There is too much to be done.

I am worried you are right.

THIS is the part of dystopian movies and stories that is usually fizzy...

"But this can't really be happening..." is the mantra of those that find themselves in a civil war

18. How did it start?

It needs to be known who started the chant. trump's people likely started the chant and followers gonna follow.
It needs to be publicized that it is his people starting this.

If Trump wins, he's not the problem. It's the slicker version of Trump that follows the wake he created that's the problem.

24. As Friedman said, every time they start this shit, start a wave of voter registratin in every single

swing state.

That's a smart way to channel the negative reactions.

Double down in GOTV like they do and they'll admire how more unstoppable we are than they.

They just try tribal incantations. We do good democratic shit.

Trump is obviously running out of new ideas.

27. A natural progression from the "lock her up" chants and his threats to go after Hillary

I am actually surprised there is so much reaction to his latest outrage since it falls right in line with the themes of his horrific rallies of 2016 on and his continuous attacks and namecalling of people of color and those who speak against him and his conduct, especially women.

There should have been more outrage over his birther attacks on Pres. Obama and over the "lock her up" chants.

28. What more proof does anyone need that Trump and his supporters are Nazis?

The Republican Party under Trump is little more than an extremist white nationalist group at this point.

Once we win the Presidency and both houses back in 2020, measures need to be taken to have the republican party officially designated as the domestic terrorist organization it actually is. Any old school, William F. Buckley-type conservatives will need either form another political party or dismantle and reform the current republican party until every vestige of toxic white nationalism and fascism has been expunged, but I doubt they'll succeed.

29. Babies and children kidnapped from their families and

imprisoned in inhumane conditions, the more vulnerable ones damaged for life by this deliberate intense cruelty, many literally lost and to this date not located, children who left placements, possibly on their own but who knows, not even searched for, and much more is still the low for me.
