When people don't like the outcomes of political decisions, they can become passionate. There was no shortage of conservative outrage against Obama. Likewise, there is no shortage of outrage against President Trump. But there is a key difference, it seems liberals are willing to convert angry words into deadly action.

In his own words, liberal terrorist, James Hodgkinson wanted to kill as many Republicans as possible.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) -- Both liberals and conservatives get angry over politics. There have been a great number of angry words spoken on both sides of the aisle and across the political spectrum. However, there is one distinct difference. Liberals appear ready to persecute conservatives, and even attack them.
The number of liberal attacks on conservatives have spiked since July 2016, when it appeared possible that Trump could defeat Clinton in the election.
There is no clear explanation why liberals are more ready to use violence, particularly mob violence, against others. One hypothesis is that conservatives tend to favor a live-and-let-live approach to things in general, and are more likely to fight defensively --only when their lives, rights or property are threatened. Liberals are more likely to form bands to fight, and become inflamed over vague ideas, even if they cannot articulate what those ideas mean. It's surprising given that liberals are anti-gun and pro-peace, and strangely, pro-Sharia law.
