Its seems to be a common theme amongst the nationalist, xenophobic fruitcakes, who all seem to have deep seated paranoia of being persecuted. They have a strange obsession with violence and civil war to cleanse all those immigrants and establishment “elites”. You’ll often here “there’ll be civil war if [insert anything about brexit/sharia law/black presidents etc.] happens”

All sorts of personal insecurity and small-man syndrome issues going on there there.

No seems more like this has developed into a psychological issue.

I have great respect for the man. And my knuckles do not scrape the ground.

Respect comes in many forms. I may respect his abilities and accomplishments, but that doesn't mean I don't think he is an odious sack of crap devoid of any merit.

I choose where I debate my politics very carefully. This forum is not that place.

If you’re able to keep emotion and conjecture out of debates, there’s usually more to learn by having discussions with people that disagree with you. It’s certainly more difficult because it requires introspection, but isn’t that the whole point of a debate?

Working out why people feel the way they do often breaks things down into the same core drivers – hence I find playing devils advocate can be enlightening sometimes.

OK, that's the spleen vented. I would be genuinely interested in why you hold such an opinion, preferably supported by examples rather than more spleen. Done carefully you might even change my mind about him.
