Why should it be illegal to punch someone you disagree with in the head?

These people could never see a single flaw in a President Obama but now they can write this, and perhaps they even believe it:

What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself. He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, his craving for adulation — these traits were, of course, at the very heart of his scorched-earth outsider campaign; indeed, some of them helped get him elected. But in a real presidency in which he wields unimaginable power, they are nothing short of disastrous.

Although his policies are, for the most part, variations on classic Republican positions (many of which would have been undertaken by a President Ted Cruz or a President Marco Rubio), they become far more dangerous in the hands of this imprudent and erratic man. Many Republicans, for instance, support tighter border security and a tougher response to illegal immigration, but Trump’s cockamamie border wall, his impracticable campaign promise to deport all 11 million people living in the country illegally and his blithe disregard for the effect of such proposals on the U.S. relationship with Mexico turn a very bad policy into an appalling one.

OK borderline insane but this was the bit I found the most impressive:

Many Republicans, for instance, support tighter border security and a tougher response to illegal immigration.

Is the implication here that no Democrats do, or only a handful? Then the point should be made that this is ILLEGAL. These West Coast types must have fried their thought processes in grass and smack if they cannot understand that the moment an illegal migrant enters a country they are already outside the law. If the Democrats are a party supporting the breaking of the law, then why would anyone vote for them. There are plenty of laws I or anyone else might consider unfair, or at least in some way to their disadvantage. Border control is not some massive breach of ethics but standard practice everywhere. If they cannot even understand that, what hope is there for them to understand anything at all?

Moreover, these views are so deranged that it is impossible to understand where one might even begin to discuss any issue of importance. If building a wall as a form of border protection is so outside the range of their conception of the possible and the practical, they cannot even enter the conversation. If they cannot even think there might be a case for keeping illegal migrants out, and for removing illegals who have broken other laws, then what can you talk to them about? They are a lost cause because they are so politically blinded by their irrational hatreds that it becomes hard to understand how they could be constructive in dealing with these and other problems under a President Trump.
