Lets talk about the fires at mosques, people who get shot, people who get yelled at, people who get their hijabs pulled off, and possibly a kidnapping and murder. Remember there was a student that was getting bothered and then the next day she disappeared? I never heard anything more about her. Was she found and if she was alive or dead? They have already become violent or on the very thin cusp of being so.

The Donald egging them on. Those who believe anyone regardless of mental or criminal history should be able to own arsenals of deadly weapons have a penchant for violence. A couple years ago, I was passing through an Arizona town. Rootin Tootin cow boy brought his dogs into the dog park, packing bilateral heat, two pistols ready to draw. He started spouting RW radio conspiracy crap, showing signs of anger and instability. About 20 other people and their pups were exiting somewhat hastily. At the point this nutjob started in on "Ah think all them lib rolls jest oughta be lined up and shot"...
I leashed Caleb and soon he was the only one left fuming to himself.
Yes there are many Trump fans that are one neuron snap away from going totally postal. Just give it time.

I know it's wrong to stereotype them, but I just can't help it. I envision most deplorables as lazy, dim witted slobs who don't have the physical stamina to create anything more than noise. I hope that doesn't offend anyone, it wasn't my intent. Yes I do realize the average trump voter probably doesn't fall into that category, but I don't think the average trump voter is one of the rabid deplorables that would be prone to violence. When HRC coined the deplorables I truly think she was referring to the mindless Trump zombies.

I think you need to rephrase your question.

We're almost at the adopt-a-Muslim point because Muslim women are less likely to be harassed by Chumps if they've got an obviously Anglo companion when they go shopping.

An Indian engineer was murdered last week for being brown. Another was wounded and so was the white guy who tried to stop it.

Every day we seem to read about another outrage committed by Chumps: arson at a Texas mosque. Road rage incidents. Street harassment and pulling hijabs off women. Hispanics enduring calls of "Go home, wetback!" all over the place.

This country is getting fucking scary.
