My turn to post the long, unorthodox political interview that nobody will actually watch:

It's a radio show so I mean it's more like a podcast
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'm too busy occluding my dark thoughts with British comedy panel shows.

I'm just trying to prove that I'm better than Pat and his measly hour long videos.

Hey I listened to that Joe Rogan episode. It was really good!

There was another one as well... let me see if I can find it.

FOUND IT! Was with Dave Rubin.

So.

When are we gonna have a talk about how the media, the police, and a large portion of the public are simply okay with violent protests at every Trump rally? This is entirely unacceptable. And the police are not doing anything about it. They won't arrest people or even touch them for whatever reason. Maybe they're scared? And the media ignores this unfair treatment and even goes as far as to blame Trump people for "being provocative".

muh victim blaming

And the public... oh the public... your crimes are the worst of all because you are ignorant to it.

Guess now the Trump supporters know what it's like to be black.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Even the black ones!

Though your implication is pretty ****ty. A lot of these people are working class and have been jerked around by the system and society for their whole lives. They already know what it is like and your flippant disregard for them is ****ing disturbing. What is happening is not right.

I never got the whole thing about the working class rallying around someone rich that pretty much preaches that the rich should get richer.

Can't explain it either.

However that doesn't accurately reflect what Trump has been preaching to them this election cycle.

Yes, I wasn't disagreeing that it's wrong.

It's possible for both black people in America *and* angry, disenfranchised Trump voters to be a victim of a bent system, I wasn't implying that one problem was worse than another or anything.

It's not like you to decide that suddenly a topic can't be joked about  :(

When are we gonna have a talk about how the media, the police, and a large portion of the public are simply okay with violent protests at every Trump rally?

Are they, though?  I know that the protests have gotten a good amount of attention in the media.  As they say, if it bleeds, it leads.  I really don't know how much condemnation there has been, or if it gets the same "gawk at the spectacle" coverage as Trump and anything around him.

With the police, different forces are going to have different capabilities and different strategies to deal with a large violent group.  One of the videos I saw, everything rapidly escalated when police took someone into custody.  A somewhat hands off approach may keep protests from getting even more violent, I don't know.  Just speculation.

And the public, well.  If I knew what the general public was thinking I wouldn't have been in denial about Trump for so long.  But maybe there seems to not be much outcry because there's been a steady stream of violent rhetoric and political activity.  There's been violence on both sides at Trump events.  Black Lives Matter has crashed events of supporters and opponents alike.  There were the riots in Baltimore and the media has eagerly held its breath waiting for more violence every time a verdict is reached in these unarmed black shootings.  I'd include the Bundy supporters' armed squatting in Oregon.  Hell, I might go so far as to include Occupy Wall Street and their insisting that they be allowed to camp for free and indefinitely on any city property.  So yeah, egging and tackling Trump supporters didn't happen in a vacuum.  What is "normal," what is "acceptable" political activity may be shifting, and not in a good direction.
