Trump protestors riot in Chicago


#1

Like Trump or not, these thugs have just elected him the next president.


#2

This type of behavior takes place weekly on college campuses across the nation when Republican/Conservative speakers show up to speak. Trump was set to hold a rally near U of I. This demonstration was adjacent to the U of I Chicago campus. The only difference is that this demonstration tonight, geared as they were to shut down an opposing viewpoint, was on a larger scale than most such demonstrations on campus.

These anarchists verbally champion diversity - as long as you agree with their political point of view that is.

Parents that pay $50K per year to send their kids to schools offering such a poor level of education should have their heads examined.

Can you spell ANARCHY??

When I went to Cornell one of my friends and I were walking by a building holding a Milton Friedman lecture. He suggested trying to shut it down. I said that as abhorent as his views might be all views should be expressed and discussed. He was surprised given that I was a well-known leftist extremist. I still am one but my tactics are less violent.

Speaking of college campuses and ANARCHY …

In their brilliant minds, these agitators think that they won. Nevermind that for every thug on the streets of Chicago tonight they drove a dozen more Americans into the Trump column. Flushed with success, there will be repeat performances. Imagine Cleveland in July, it could be as bad as Chicago in 1968; which event quite possibly sealed the deal on the election of Nixon.

The media talking heads and some GOP leaders want to blame Trump’s harsh rhetoric. I honestly believe that most Americans will see through that crap. Am I being naive?

[/quote]Neither Nixon nor Humphrey urged violence towards protesters. Trump has. Big difference. Shades of the Beer Hall Putsch.

I don’t know about giving Trump the WH - or mere dozens of new votes - but I think these thugs gave Trump 100s of 1000s of $$ of free advertising, and footage for future ads. And I think they brought hundreds, if not thousands of voters over to Trump. It was a massively Pyrrhic victory for the thugs.


#8

Never said Nixon or Humphrey was involved in any way. Now, regarding Trump and the so-called protesters:

An individual enters a private venue with the intent of harassment and suppression of free speech, with the intent of not voluntarily leaving when asked, with the intent of resisting any attempt to physically remove him. Tell me who has intentionally brought violence into the room, who has escalated the confrontation? The rhetoric of the speaker, or anyone else in the room, does not even enter into the equation.

I found this piece on another forum and found it to be a good read.

It does make a good argument for what is going on.

If or when Trump is no longer in the sites of these … er scum, who will be their next target?

I couldn’t quite figure out where to start and end the quote so … I am just going to leave the link.

The two media narratives I’ve seen so far have been:

  • Trump’s racism, sexism, blah-blah-blah-ism caused this;

  • Trump engineered this for political advantage.

I think Trump will benefit, significantly, from this riot, but Libs & Progs need to own that it was their doing, to enjoy their Pyrrhic victory while they can.

It was in pre-war, pre-Holocaust Germany where Hitler’s Sturmabteilung relied on exactly the same style of tactics used by the loose affiliation of leftists, militant black SJW’s and Democratic Party operatives used to bust up the Trump rally last night.

It usually gets scant mention, if any, but Communists in 1920s-1930s Germany had their own organized goon-&-thug squads. Hitler’s and Roehm’s SA simply got bigger and were tougher.

It’s the way that younger generations have been mis-educated (intentionally). Their scant knowledge of history would lead one to believe that the Nazis were the only murdering scumbags in history and white American Christians were the only slave owners.

[/quote]But Trump was/is is the wrong for urging direct violence against those disrupters, rather than relying on police.

When I engage in violent protests against conservatives I expect police to deal with me.


#15

If someone perpetrates violence in my presence, I will defend those around me. Including me. I have that right.
Everyone here has, at one time or another, uttered the desire to see someone smacked in the mouth for their behavior. Trump said over and over for the police to “be gentle” and for the supporters to let the police escort them out.


#16

Trump’s statements during his events that he would like to punch these people (disruptors), or that he, Trump, will pay for the defense of his supporter who punched a disruptor in the face and who said next time the disruptor might have to be killed as the disruptor was being led out of the arena, or Trump’s statement that at one point in history these people - disruptors - would have been rolled out on a gurney - these statements by Trump did not cause/justify the organized disruption, but these statements from the podium at his rallies are incendiary and unacceptable. That Trump doesn’t realize this is VERY troubling!! It brings into question his temperament and suitability for office.

El Chapo at it again I see.
