Trump is trying to bait the left into doing something stupid

Trump is more of a counter puncher. If he has to initiate he does it with a sucker punch. I think his latest rhetoric is to try to get someone on the left to do something stupid, to incite violance of some sort, so that he can react to it.

6. Would if he was capable of understanding. Now,

the right used to often refer to us as smug, self righteous, bleeding heart, naive, arrogant, judgmental, disdainful. These all seem to suggest they realized we believed ourselves smarter and morally superior and felt defensive. No wonder smart manipulators have moved them away from defense of indefensible base attitudes and into attack modes.

Never give them any chance to take advantage, we've waited too fucking long for this opportunity to make corrections to keep our country alive.
