When liberals turned “Love Trumps Hate” into a slogan during the 2016 presidential election, I don’t think any of us expected love trumping hate to be so violent.
You don’t have to look hard to find video evidence of physical violence against Trump supporters – but you’ll have to do a heck of a lot of searching just to find singular incidents of violence against anti-Trump individuals, and it’s never an organized act of violence.
There’s no right-wing equivalent of groups like “Antifa,” the “anti-fascists” in name only who think fighting “the man” includes destroying storefronts, setting cop cars on fire, assaulting people, and much more!
Just take a look at some recent headlines involving the violent left.
And the effect of all this? Are Trump supporters turning liberal the second a fist comes in contact with their faces? Are people on the sidelines refusing to support Trump out of fear that they’ll be assaulted next?
Nope, and nope. As frustrating as it is to read about the madness of violent liberals in the news, you’re not the only one seeing it as complete insanity. In reality, leftist violence is turning more people against them than it’s bringing in.
According to the Telegraph:
With all of this book-burning and platform-denying madness sweeping up much of the media’s interest in campus culture, the gradual rise of another group of students has gone under-reported. British and American millennials and post-millennials – also known as ‘Gen Z’ – are warming to conservatism.
There have been several responses to campus censorship in the United Kingdom and the United States. One of the most interesting developments has been the rise in demand for conservative thought. In the United States, college tours by speakers popular with conservatives such as Milo Yiannopoulos, Steven Crowder, Ben Shapiro and Christina Hoff Sommers have become huge events. There has been a spike in membership in conservative college clubs including Young Americans for Liberty, which boasts 804 chapters filled with 308,927 members. In the United Kingdom, free speech societies have been started across the country.
Analysis from market research firm, The Gild, shows that ‘Gen Z’ is the most conservative generation since 1945. The research reveals that ‘Gen Z’ Britons are more likely to favour conservative spending, dislike tattoos and body-piercings, and oppose marijuana legislation.
Well, there’s a silver lining in everything I suppose.
Keep it up liberals – what hasn’t killed us has only made us stronger!
