It hasn't happened for a while now though if I was to voice my opinion on politics in Baltimore city they'd definitely do it. Even where I live at in the county area people are hostile toward conservative beliefs. Honestly, I just haven't voiced my opinion much in public except for on here. Lmao, I'd probably be fired from my work if they seen my political opinions. The latest thing that happened to me was my car got vandalized because of my Dimmit's Goliad flag and don't tread on me flag. I also have other logos, but yeah.
@Haroush As someone who is strongly against many conservative viewpoints, that should never happen to anyone.
I disagree with you, but no one should be violently suppressed from speaking their opinion.
Well, I almost got assaulted in high school. I was a black guy in a room of redneck good 'ol boys and I called Bush a "moron", it escalated and I was about to have to get my a$$ whipped by like three guys and the teacher broke it up. Other than that, I've gotten in like three fights with people other than my brother, but those can't really be called assault because I either threw the first punch or had the first punch coming for me. Did I deserve those punches? Eh I don't think so, but I wouldn't call it assault.
Here is some advice to BJ, if you are going to call anyone a moron, make sure you state why you think they are a moron. If you did this, you might have been able to deescalate the matter. At least this is the way you make it sound how it happened. I on the other hand can't even voice a conservative opinion without being looked down upon where I live at.
@Haroush, I agree and sympathize, it's like that in North Carolina but opposite. I'm not exactly liberal, in fact, I don't really even like liberals, but I definitely don't agree with Republicans respectively. I did explain my reasoning, but they weren't the sort of republicans that are capable of rational discourse like a lot of the ones on here are; they were rednecks, and, well, that should be explanation enough. I could've stabilized the situation, but they weren't much for big words and legal/political matters, it's hard to talk politics with some one who has only ever heard about politics by their father who'd just say stuff like, "these d###, sissy liberals, trying to turn us into a communist sect, or some s$%#". I'm sure you ran into people like that in Baltimore, but in the opposite effect. In fact, at my high school I only knew of a handful of people that kept up with politics, and about half were Republican and half were Democrat, I, however, was, and still am, unaffiliated with a political party. The rest of my school was pretty much universally Republican and you could tell by their simplistic understandings of American politics that they didn't really know anything about politics. You could also tell by the fact that I could sit there and talk about how pretentious and slightly annoying I found Gore for 30 minutes but then move on to Bush and, all of the sudden, everything explodes. That's what is flawed about the democratic system in America is that no one really puts any effort into learning about the people they put in office: my entire family with the exception of my brothers just go to the ballet and check the straight "Republican" box without a thought in their head. And the only reason one of my two brothers doesn't do that is that he doesn't vote.
