    They don't care, it's all about owning the libs.

    So public employees should not support political candidates?

    Not in any official capacity, no

    Edit: and before you say it, no, teachers donít do it.

    Federals have the Hatch Act on what we can or cannot do.

    How do the public employee unions fit in the equation?

    The same as any other private enterprise.

    No surprise that trump's adjective-laden tweets read like a cheap real estate listing.

    If the cops want to self identify that is fine by me...not sure they will want to be seen in public or on TV wearing it ESPECIALLY if they live and work in the Cities. Showing your bias is usually not something that is looked on favorably.

    It is becoming quite clear that Trump and the "Cops for Trump" are looking to cause riots.

    The police officers and sheriffs deputies that I know personally do not want to draw attention to their profession outside of when they're in uniform. While they have strong political views, they'd never show up to an event with the [fill in department here] for [candidate here] shirts. First, they can often be harassed by the public if people know their profession (witness by BIL and our wives' uncle who lays into him at every extended family get together), and they just want their personal lives to be about their friends and families.

    I think I've read that in the 50s and 60s during protests and race riots, some cops would proudly wear pin-on buttons with pigs on them and basically own the pejorative term. This is precisely the modern form of that.

    Frank Rizzo's infamous Philly PD that framed and murdered black and white liberal protestors did this. Generally speaking, it is an evergreen characteristic of right wing paramilitary state and private institutions. Thuggery is intimately tied to political and social conservatism. "Shut up," he explained, is the operational definition of authoritarianism and it thrives on the right from government to business to religion.

    My uncle and great-grandpa purposely did not voice their political beliefs outside of family. They didn't want it to affect their job or the people's attitudes towards them.

    I worry less about officers' prejudices than I do about their need for authority and control.

    Their prejudices can directly feed into their actions, however....

    "Some 20,000 mostly out-of-towners will descend on the Target Center" to see the Trump rally. Because, of course, there are no bad people in the Twin Cities.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Minneapolis is famously educated. If you're looking for Republicans you'll need to look out of town.

    You need to get out more.

    Half a million people in the Twin Cities metro area voted for Trump in 2016, and half of those were from the "ultra liberal" areas of Hennepin and Ramsey Counties.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
