    No trying-to-be objective and fair journalist, no citizen who cares about the country and its future can ignore what Donald Trump said today. When he suggested that "The Second Amendment People" can stop Hillary Clinton he crossed a line with dangerous potential. By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics. This is no longer about policy, civility, decency or even temperament. This is a direct threat of violence against a political rival. It is not just against the norms of American politics, it raises a serious question of whether it is against the law. If any other citizen had said this about a Presidential candidate, would the Secret Service be investigating?

    Candidate Trump will undoubtably issue an explanation; some of his surrogates are already engaged in trying to gloss it over, but once the words are out there they cannot be taken back. That is what inciting violence means.

    To anyone who still pretends this is a normal election of Republican against Democrat, history is watching. And I suspect its verdict will be harsh. Many have tried to do a side-shuffle and issue statements saying they strongly disagree with his rhetoric but still support the candidate. That is becoming woefully insufficient. The rhetoric is the candidate.

    This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign. We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrow's newspapers do it justice. We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.

    We are a democratic republic governed by the rule of law. We are an honest, fair and decent people. In trying to come to terms with today's discouraging development the best I can do is to summon our greatest political poet Abraham Lincoln for perspective:

    "We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."

    Lincoln used these stirring words to end his First Inaugural Address. It was the eve of the Civil War and sadly his call for sanity, cohesion and peace was met with horrific violence that almost left our precious Union asunder. We cannot let that happen again. DAN RATHER

    A vote for Trump means voting for a friend of Wall Street, a friend of trade deals that will crush the middle class further, more wars in the Middle East, and increased censorship.

    Oh, wait....

    The only thing the Lincoln quote demonstrates is the ineffectiveness of mere words in influencing people's opinions, attitudes and decisions.

    It's hilarious that the op starts this thread pretending that he's trying to be non-biased and fair, but dogginnit since its trump he can't be.

    Where was the OP when all this happened? Seems to me Ya'll been at it a lot longer than The Donald.....If that's what he meant at all..........

    Below will go a list of some hateful, outrageous and incendiary comments and other similar stuff including death threats from people on the left wing spectrum of politics in order to prove the left's violent rhetoric has been getting out of hand and is inviting kooks to commit real acts of violence such as the shooting yesterday in Arizona by Jared Lee Loughner. It will be in no particular order and link to previous FR articles as evidence. I'll keep updating as I find more after this is posted. Anybody, of course can chime in.
