Read the whole thing.....

https://medium.com/@karlyn/ive-been-a-democrat-for-20-years-here-s-what-i-experienced-at-trump-s-rally-in-new-hampshire-c69ddaaf6d07

SNIP:
You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and had worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone that wasn’t a straight, white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.



So I headed over an hour and a half before the doors were scheduled to open (which was 4 hours before Trump was set to take the stage) and the line already stretched a mile away from the entrance to the arena. As I waited, I chatted with the folks around me. And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice! I was not harassed or intimidated and was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average everyday people. They were veterans, school teachers, and small business owners and they had come from all over the place for the thrill of attending this rally. They were upbeat and excited. In chatting, I even let it slip that I was a democrat and the reaction was “Good for you! Welcome!”

Once we got inside, the atmosphere was jubilant! It was more like attending a rock concert than a political rally. People were genuinely enjoying themselves. Some were even dancing to music being played over the loudspeakers! It was so different than any other political event I had ever attended. Even Obama in 2008 didn’t feel like this.

I had attended an event with all of the Democratic contenders just two days prior in exactly the same arena and the contrast was stark. First, Trump completely filled the arena all the way up to the top. Even with every major Democratic candidate in attendance the other night, and the campaigns giving away free tickets, the Democrats did not do that. With Trump, every single person was unified around a singular goal. With the Democrats, the audience booed over candidates they didn’t like and got in literal shouting matches with each other. With Trump, there was a genuinely optimistic view of the future. With the Democrats, it was doom and gloom. With Trump, there was a genuine feeling of pride of being an American. With the Democrats, they emphasized that the country was a racist place from top to bottom.

Now, Trump is always going to present the best case he can. And yes, he lies. This is provable. But the strength of this rally wasn’t about the facts and figures. It was a group of people who felt like they had someone in their corner, that would fight for them. Some people say “well obviously they’re having a great time. They’re in a cult.” I don’t think that’s true. The reality is that many people I spoke to do disagree with Trump on things. They don’t always like his attitude. They wish he wouldn’t tweet so much. People who are in cults don’t question their leaders. The people I spoke with did, but the pros in their eyes far outweighed the cons. They don’t love him because they think he’s perfect. They love him despite his flaws because they believe he has their back.

As I left the rally (walking by thousands of people who were watching it on a giant monitor outside of the arena because they couldn’t get in), I knew that there was no way Trump was going to lose in November. Absolutely no way. I truly believe that it doesn’t matter who the Democrats nominate: Trump is going to trounce them. If you don’t believe me, attend one of his rallies and see for yourself. Don’t worry, they really won’t hurt you.

I think the Democrats have an ass-kicking coming to them in November, and I think most of them will be utterly shocked when it happens because they’re existing in an echo chamber that is not reflective of the broader reality. I hope it’s a wake-up call and causes them to take a long look in the mirror and really ask themselves how they got here. Maybe then they’ll start listening. I tend to doubt it, but I can hope.

Trump Derangement Syndrome appears to be real.....even in Nashville.

Woman punches man in Broadway bar over MAGA-style birthday hat

A man's surprise birthday gift led to a surprise attack at a Broadway bar.

Daniel Sprague was at The Stage bar on Broadway sporting a gift his wife gave him for his 50th birthday bash—a hat that says "Make 50 Great Again." The hat is styled to look like a "Make America Great Again" hat that supporters of President Donald Trump wear.

"People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday," Sprague told News4.

However, one woman at the bar was not as amused.

"At one point," Sprague said, "A female came up from behind me, spun me around, and punched me in the face and then grabbed my hat off my head and was just yelling, 'How dare you.'"

The punch was hard enough to cut Sprague's face.


"People have different views, but we're not supposed to take it out on each other," Sprague said.

Sprague is a retired police officer from New York. After the woman punched him, he filed a police report.

His message to the woman who punched him? "'Happy birthday' would be nice, and not a punch in the face!"

A large portion of that 16% live in the Beltway.

Maybe the Dims can impeach him again before the election?

Those are impressive numbers when you consider all of those candidates were also running basically unopposed.

It is really hard to take the left seriously when they spout this type of nonsense....

WATERS: TRUMP A MASS MURDERER KILLING ‘BROWN PEOPLE FOR PROFIT’

SNIP:
Roger Waters knew he was on friendly turf this week.

The Pink Floyd co-founder promoted his new concert film “Us + Them” at a New York press conference in front of a press-heavy crowd.


Waters, credibly accused of being an anti-semite, took his Trump attacks to a new level next.

“And this is a man who has failed at f***ing everything in his life except becoming the biggest … tyrant and mass murderer and mass destroyer of everything that any of us might love or cherish in the whole [world], only because he has the power,” he continued. “Unfortunately, he has his finger on the button on it, and he’s right. In ‘Pigs,’ when we put up that he has a bigger button and it works, it does. And it’s working all over the world, murdering brown people for profit.”

At this point, according to Rolling Stone, the moderator applauded Waters’ passion.

Waters didn’t share any proof to back up his claims. The Rolling Stone report doesn’t share if any reporters pressed the rock legend for specifics. Knowing how the press operates in the Age of Trump it’s unlikely.

I like Pink Floyd. David Gilmour was the talent, Roger Waters the more overrated one.

Here is an excellent performance of Comfortably Numb in Pompeii 2016, without Roger Waters...

Pink Floyd had a few good songs. Maybe 5 or so that I still like to hear today.

Yep - the Pink had two players worth paying attention to:

David Gilmour-Guitar
Nick Mason - Drums
