Yes, there are plenty on the left who are anti-Republican. But they don't come close to anti-Democrats.

    There are far fewer people being called traitors and far fewer calling someone a traitor, currently, on the left than the right (or more precisely, anti-Democrats).
    Apparently you didn't read my link. You are wrong.

    Never said I wanted a Civil War, I voted in the Poll that I would support one, if Obese Donald is convicted in the Senate on Articles of Impeachment and The Trump Stupids rose up as a result.

    There is a difference between want and support.

    I am not surprised my post about the delicious ironies made no sense to you.

    If what you posted had made any sense to you, well, I don't think you would have posted it.

    A coup is not necessarily a violent act to repeal and replace a government in power.

    The term "bloodless coup" has long been in coinage and practice. Peaceful coup is another well known fact.

    Coup d'etat is a swift and sudden action of state. There isn't anything in the term that says violence, although a number of exclusively military coups involve violence. Other coups do not, nor is a coup necessarily a military act of violence or executed by the military only.

    Turkey had a peaceful coup in 1997 for instance when the military, civilian leaders of the public and private sectors to include business leaders, academics and religious personages and so on removed the government by demanding that it resign, which is what the government did do. A transition government was established that was a reasonable cross section of the society, elections were scheduled and held.

    In Australia in 1975 the governor general who represents the sovereignty of the queen over Australia dissolved the government. The GG established an interim government under the authority of the queen that scheduled elections in which the opposition was elected to form a new government.

    Portugal in 1974 experienced the "Captain's Revolt" that without a shot being fired ejected the right wing generals and the dictator-tyrant Salazar whose long time buddy Francisco Franco died the following year. (I remember the Johnny Carson joke of good news-bad news: "The good news is that Franco is dead. The bad news is that somebody's got to tell him.")

    There are many more instances of the peaceful coup d'etat. And as I'd pointed out, the US election of 2016 was a coup executed by Putin and Russian state intelligence with US domestic active participation. We've seen and experienced the extremely negative consequences since to include the evidence and the proof.

    In a coup violence is but an option that is employed too often but not necessarily.

    Not all. But when you disrupt our government with a coup for over 2 years when there never was any collusion by Trump and the Russians don't expect the people who were looking forward to things getting done to be supportive.
    Corruption should be looked into by anyone in a free country without fear of consequences.

    You left off that we all die in 12 years - end of life on earth - if people don't give total power and control of everything and everyone to the Democratic Party. The entire campaign of the Democratic party is hate and fear mongering.

    Somehow I posted the wrong link. This is the correct link:

    Nancy Pelosi & Trump Impeachment -- Partisan Hate Is Becoming a National Crisis | National Review

    This morning the New York Times’ Thomas Edsall published an important essay highlighting a new study that analyzed the extent of “lethal mass partisanship.” As Edsall observes, the paper contained some disturbing statistics. Among them, “42 percent of the people in each party view the opposition as ‘downright evil.’” A stunning 20 percent of Democrats and 16 percent of Republicans believe “we’d be better off as a country if large numbers of the opposing party in the public today just died.” And if the opposing party wins the 2020 election, 18 percent of Democrats and 13 percent of Republicans “feel violence would be justified.”
