They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says "1788" on it. Something is close. Very close. Society is near the breaking point.
My own experience is that Hillary's so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed. Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed. The Deplorables have the longest fuse. It is, however, a fuse.
Alt-Left, on the other hand, are the Neo-Fascists and Neo-Neocons. It is Alt-Left that thinks Free Speech means THEIR speech only. It is Alt-Left that needs 'safe spaces' and wants to enforce thought crime.
It is Alt-Left, and its media lapdog sites, that is heavily into censorship of ideas that diverge from their approved ideology. It is Alt-Left that champions regime change and ratcheting up the rhetoric against Russia. It is Alt-Left that believes it has an inherent right, even an obligation, to lie and obfuscate if it serves their greater purpose.
Perhaps most significant is that it is Alt-Left who so quickly resorts to violence and vandalism when confronted with people and ideas with which it takes exception. Never has that been as clear as in this election cycle.
The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point, it will be released into the circuitry of society.
The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune. That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed. When the levee breaks or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gobsmacked.
