    First let me stress the RIGHT does plenty of crazy things (obstructions of justice), or those belonging to the Right (bombing planned parenthood, etc...). I only post this because no one else will.

    What are people thoughts on the:

    1) Kathy Griffith thing?

Obama: he wasn't perfect, but he was a generally affable, respectful and reasonable President. Trump: a narcissistic egomaniac who spend a massive amount of his campaign insulting nearly every demographic, and even openly encouraged violence against dissenters. He assumed office and immediately tried put forth measures that negatively targeted groups based solely on their religion and ethnicity, while congressional (both state and federal) members of his party began chipping away at rights inherent to women and gays.

Both of these Presidents have had detractors who took things too far (Nugent for Obama then Griffith for Trump), but only one of them actively stoked the type vile rhetoric that they themselves received. That's the general difference between the left and right, and it's why I can sympathize with where Griffith (not Nugent) is coming from, even if I still found her act disgusting.

    2) The Shooting of the republicans at the practice field

A despicable but isolated incident. I wouldn't say something like this is a trend on the left though.

    Does the Left need to calm down like our actor from Capt America (Chris Evans) movies has publically stated? Who was attacked from both sides for stating (paraphrasing) - "That Trump is our President makes me angry and sick to my stomach but people need to calm down and stop with all the hate."

The left was saying this for 8 years with next to no reciprocity from the right. I agree with Evans; for any of this to work we all need to come to the table and agree to work through it. Still, I can certainly understand why some on the left are bitter. It's kinda hard to be bosom-buddies with someone who did nothing but slap away your hand for 8 years.
