1. In Trump's Amerikkka

The deplorables and incels are free to spew their bile. But if you are a liberal, you should just STFU and take it.

2. Well it's different you know, DFT is a President,

Hillary is just a woman.

That's how America works. We still face a mighty struggle to state simply, as a nation, that women a fully human in that they are equal to men. We have Virginia, but the ERA will remain an uphill battle.

3. These chants appear to come

the urging of Trump Operatives well placed in the Audience. They sure as hell look darn well rehearsed.

Every thing Trump is a play on Optics and sound bites. Proof is,the new story about Mark Burnnet and his "Apprentice White House" pitch. NBC seems to be doing what ever it takes to keep Trump relevant.

4. This is one of the complaints about "liberalism".

That it is ill equipped to deal with attacks from the right. This is because of the nature of liberalism. There is an inherent claim of neutrality, objectivity, tolerance, and openness within liberalism that is often exploited by the right. No such nature or claim exists on the right. The right is fighting for the dominance of the "traditional hierarchy" which is based on race, gender, religion, and wealth. Rich, White, Men, who are predominantly Christian (more specifically Protestant Christian) should be at the top.

Liberalism espouses that hierarchies "may exist" but that they should not necessarily be based on characteristics like race, gender, or other but on the merits of the individuals. This is often seen, especially from the left, as a flawed reasoning because of history and because of capitalism's natural tendency to concentrate wealth and distort opportunity.

Anyway, before I get way carried away. Right wingers prey upon the sensibilities of liberals for a just and fair process, even though they have NO intention of ever following one. They scream about the "intolerant left" and how liberals don't care about people's rights and liberals always respond by trying to be "more objective" and "weighing both sides" of an argument.

This is something that needs to be worked on because right wingers are subverting the rules of the game to win. They cannot compete based on their ideas, because their ideas are horrid, so they compete on process, and they cheat, because to them power is the victory and they don't care how they achieve it.
