    Polling on the mob mentality of the Democrats regarding the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings must have dinged the Democrats. They are out in full propaganda mode to call Republicans 'violent', 'mobs', etc.

    Republicans used to love the sound of an angry mob. What happened?

    There was a time, less than a decade ago, when the sound of red-faced protest was music to Republican ears.

    That, of course, was when Barack Obama was president, and the tea party movement was hijacking congressional town hall meetings with shouts of “Tyranny!” There were plenty of shoving matches, and Democratic lawmakers were burned in effigy. The police were regularly called in to bring a semblance of order.

    <snip>

    Meanwhile, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) lauded the conservative agitation as a pure expression of the frustrations and values of ordinary Americans.

    Now it is the Democrats who are making the noise, and the argument is playing in reverse.

    It seems that when Democrats protest, they are a dangerous mob. Republicans don't like it when their own tactics are used against them.

    Of course that was AT town hall meetings and the violence was precipitated by leftists who didn't agree with their pols being questioned and yelled at - during a LISTENING SESSION - not when walking in the halls of congress or having their office invaded.

    It wasn't chasing politicians and their staff out of restaurants, threatening them with rape or millions of dollars for their opponent IF they vote a certain way - blackmail, extortion -, beating private citizens up if they wear a shirt or hat supporting Democrats or Obama, rhetoric by numerous pols to 'get in their face', 'chase them out of public places', 'no peace' and on and on....which was then carried out by Republican -----like with the Democrats now.

    They have to go back to Trumps rallies where there was ONE incident of a protester getting punched, vs. their rude protests and beating up rally attenders claiming that WORDS are violent so therefore THEY are entitled to beat them up.

    The propagandists are out in force saying that it is Republicans who are "uncivil" and are "mobs".

    The Kavanaugh confirmation showed in stark reality just WHO and WHAT the DEMOCRAT Party is.

    1. they like an angry mob of old white men

    When the mob is women, young people, and POC they don't like it.

    3. They still do. That is Trump's and the GOP's voting base.

    But why are they angry??? They got everything they wanted. They are angry because they thrive on anger.

    It takes a hell of a lot to make Democrats that angry, but gotta hand it to Trump and the GOP for overstepping their path to government destruction. They awakened those that rarely get political.
    LOL. Democrats have been out of their mind enraged since the night President Trump won. For no reason other than they LOST. And they blame their hatred and anger on President Trump........because he won, and that justifies their anger and hatred.

    Delusions, Denial, Justification, Projection...the psychological basis of Democrats.

    The only angry mob I love the sound of is the angry wailing and gnashing of teeth by mobs of powerless Democrats every time Trump gives a speech.
    Liberals! The real fascists.
