Donald Trump, Protesters & Violence – Who Is @ Fault & Who is Grandstanding

By Debbie Schlussel

**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****

trumpjohnmcgraw

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting really sick and tired of the media and other grandstanders whining about what goes on at Donald Trump rallies. And some of the comparisons and other statements are beyond ridiculous.

Why is everyone blaming Donald Trump for what goes on at his rallies? Why aren’t they blaming leftist radicals seeking to incite riots and violence? Why aren’t they blaming Bernie Sanders who condones (and refuses to condemn) his supporters infiltrating Trump rallies for this express purpose? Why is Ted Cruz, who claims to be a Constitutionalist, blaming Trump for the behavior of the radical left?

Why? Why? Why? These are all questions that demand to be asked. Yet, no one in the media is asking them. Love him or hate him, blaming Donald Trump for the violence of radicals (and his supporters who respond and fight back) is a tactic of the left. An Alinskyite tactic.

Yes, it’s true that a 78-year-old man, John McGraw, punched out a Black protester (whose race should be irrelevant, but sadly isn’t in our Only Black Lives Matter climate) who was being kicked out of the rally. And I do think he went too far in saying, “Next time, we’ll kill them,” or something to that effect. That was dumb. But . . .

But I also know that the protester, Rakeem Jones, gave the 78-year-old and others in the audience the finger. And as I noted during my weekly appearance on the Pat Campbell Show on Friday, there is such a thing as “fighting words” under the law, and in my opinion, giving someone the finger constitutes fighting words. Not all fighting words are protected free speech, and they are words that are considered incitement. They are insults or other epithets meant to incite violence or hatred, and the Supreme Court has generally only considered “fighting words” to be those uttered in face-to-face encounters as this one was. Giving someone the finger, while not spoken, is abusive, communicated language meant to provoke violence. Yes, it is true that the Supreme Court very narrowly defined fighting words and, now, most of them are protected, but they can also be considered provocations of legitimate self-defense in certain instances.

While fighting words are not an excuse for violence, provocation sometimes is. And if I were this 78-year-old–for whom Donald Trump has said he’s “considering” paying legal bills–I’d argue that I felt this was a violent gesture and that this man represented a threat–a threat of violence that I had to stop with a punch. (And, wow, good to see a 78-year-old still has some fight left in him.) I’m not saying I definitely support the punch to that protester, but it didn’t happen in a vacuum, unprovoked, as is being portrayed in much of the media. I doubt the punch would have taken place if there was no middle-finger salute thrown his way.

Trump is not responsible for what people do at his rallies. Most attendees are peaceful and there to support and hear him speak. While he’s been blamed for saying “get ’em out,” how is that encouraging violence? Saying he would punch someone or like to punch someone is also NOT encouraging violence. When Donald Trump says, “Beat them up,” or “Hit them,” about peaceful protesters who are not provoking the crowd, then come talk to me. Until then, it’s just baloney to blame him.

Then, there are the comparisons of Trump and his rallies to Adolf Hitler and his rallies. This is an accusation that sickens me more than most. Both of my late maternal grandparents, a great-aunt, a great-uncle, and many cousins survived the Holocaust . . . barely. Most of both sides of my family were wiped out by Hitler and his minions. The stories my late grandfather told me are horrific. One of my closest friends, an Israeli Holocaust survivor man cries whenever he tells me about what happened to his family. Jews were sent to ovens, “showers,” shot in the head, forced to starve to death, and die of disease and the torture of hard labor. They were turned into lampshades and ashes galore. To compare Donald Trump and his rallies to this is beyond outrageous.

This is a man whose daughter is Jewish (albeit by a questionable, quickie conversion performed by my first cousin Georgie’s father-in-law). His son-in-law and two of his grandchildren (soon a third) are Jews. Trump has never ever done anything remotely resembling Hitler. Not even close. To make the comparison is an abomination. (I will address the David Duke and Klan stuff in another post.)

Newsflash: many of the brave American men who liberated concentration camps and their children and grandchildren are supporters of Donald Trump. Now, you’re gonna tell them they’re supporting Hitler?! PUH-LEEZE.

Then, there is this jerk, Ted Cruz, of whom I used to be a staunch supporter. But I’ve grown more and more disgusted with this fraud and, frankly, weirdo. He’s as much of an establishment type as anybody. And he’s a phony. I’ll have more to say about this in a later post. But for now, I must comment on his grandstanding and annoying blame of Donald Trump for the violence started by protesters. Really? You’re gonna defend leftist garbage who try to silence conservative speech on college campuses and now at Presidential rallies . . . just to score points with the liberal media and your new GOP establishment pals endorsing you? Schmuck. When there are violent protesters at Ted Cruz rallies, let’s see what happens. Until then, STFU.

Here’s a tip for lefty and RINO phonies “outraged” by the response to violent, disruptive, America-haters: you are no different from them. You are no different than William Ayers who did this crap in the past and is now supporting this. Yup, that guy who bombed the Pentagon. You support his brand of terrorism. You are also no different than the Chicago Seven/Eight–anti-war radicals and America-haters who tried this crap at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, including Black Panthers co-founder Bobby Seale. They were prosecuted for a reason. They were terrorists. And so are these protesters.

They have no “right” to free speech at Trump Rallies. Trump rallies are not held on public lands. They are–for the most part–private events, hosted at venues paid for by the Trump campaign. Although the public is generally invited, there is no freedom or Constitutional right to disrupt events at which you are not wanted by the host of the event. There is no right to stay when you’ve been asked to leave the party.

This is why it disgusts me to hear the ignorant hags on ABC’s “The View” whining about this. Today, Caryn Elaine Johnson a/k/a “Whoopi Goldberg” bitched that Donald Trump is denying protesters their freedom of speech. Um, no he’s not. Can I go to the set of “The View” or Ms. Johnson’s home and insist on remaining there and yelling and screaming? Nope. I would be arrested for trespassing and a number of other things.

But it wasn’t just the dogs at “The View.” It was today’s Wall Street Journal, which, in an editorial, compared Trump to Melissa Click, the Missouri professor who threatened a campus photographer–in an insane tirade, calling for “some muscle” to beat him up to stop him from filming. Here’s a tip for the haters at the Journal: the University of Missouri is public property. It’s paid for by taxpayers. That means anyone can protest there or take photos or videos. It means a professor can’t stop anyone from doing so and can’t use violence to prevent filming she doesn’t like. She doesn’t own the land. How that is the same as a Trump rally, where–again–the venue rental is paid for by the Trump campaign or another private party, I’d love to know. Maybe the geniuses at the Wall Street Journal editorial page can enlighten me. And maybe I can take advantage of their logic and show up at their offices and protest. Right? I mean, if someone has a right to speech at a Trump rally, then why don’t I have a right to speech at private offices of a newspaper?

That’s not how it works.

But, hey, who cares about logic? Who cares about leftist protesters seeking violence and the silencing of those they don’t like? Who cares about recognizing what the real Hitler actually did, rather than the guy you don’t like and affix with the unwarranted Hitlerian comparison?

This isn’t about logic or fighting the leftist usurpation of our rights or history. This is all about one thing they think trumps all principle: Stop Trump.

*** UPDATE: Adam Taxin sent me this pic of Muslim biotches from the Chicago Trump rally, ready to cause problems the same way the terrorists they support do all over the world. Note the one chick’s Palestinian flag t-shirt. Fashion that sucks. These are the creatures with whom Ted Cruz and the others are siding against Trump. Wow.

muslimbitchestrumprally

Also, this from Little Al, which I meant to post in this and which I got yesterday:

What a spectacle! Virtually every Republican Party politician and almost all of the ‘conservative’ media siding with the protesters rather than Trump. Never mind that these protesters are Muslim terrorists, Communists, BLM rabble, campus riff-raff, etc.

Comparisons have been made between this and how the me-too Republicans treated Goldwater in 1964. Valid comparisons to a point, but it is worse now.

Remember that the Harlem riot took place in the summer of 1964. While the liberals blamed poverty rather than the rioters is true, but at least the left-wing Republicans did not blame Goldwater for the riots.

Also, to me says something about Cruz; his willingness to blame Trump rather than the demonstrators. As I’ve said privately and on the blog, I do think that some of Trump’s utterances (not all of them) are unnecessarily provocative, certainly the demonstration in Chicago had an independent dynamic.

The fact that Cruz et al can take this position and still call themselves ‘conservatives’ should, I think be kept in mind when Cruz says he will appoint ‘conservative’ justices. His definition of “conservative’ is certainly much broader than mine, and I think this is important to remember when he says he will appoint ‘conservative’ justices. Conservative on settled issues such as abortion to be sure, but what about enforcing the law against terrorists, Communists, etc.?

Besides the usual gaggle of leftist suspects mentioned in this article, there’s Obama’s circle of “community organizer” friends (i.e. Van Jones, the various ACORN spinoffs) who whip up their little rent-a-mobs at the slightest notice – not to mention the funding by those like George Soros. I’ve also noticed a similarity between the blaming of The Donald for all the mayhem and strife at his rallies, and those who blame rape victims for being raped. But as for the whole Klan/Duke kerfuffle – why aren’t those who harp on that as interested in Sharpton/Farrakhan/Jackson et al. support of Dems like Hillary or Bernie?

ConcernedPatriot on March 14, 2016 at 5:05 pm

Trump as comparable to Hitler? This theme has plagued us since the beginning of his campaign, but has picked up steam during the week or two before the Florida primary for obvious reasons. There are a number of Jewish voters who will vote Republican in Florida; they aren’t all Democrats. Similarly, Ohio and Illinois have a lot of Jewish voters, and many of them could be expected to cross party lines to combat the ‘Hitler threat’ that the evil Trump represents.

The theme of ‘violent’ Trump rallies was, I think, orchestrated in advance with the leftist rally in Chicago. That theme started emerging, again, about a week or so ago, and, almost simultaneously the labor movement stated it would start playing a larger role in combating Trump. We know what that means; the SEIU purple-shirted goons, and, in Chicago, the red-shirted teacher (sic) goons who mock the concept of professionalism. I think the Republican establishment likely had a quiet hand in organizing these loudmouth protests also, since their clamoring about Trump’s violence preceded the Chicago spectacle by only a few days. Too much of a coincidence.

Some like Rush Limbaugh think they are being clever; criticizing the protestors without making clear that fakes like Cruz support them.

And then, even if the 78-year-old was wrong (which I don’t think he was), this is one person out of the hundreds of thousands or millions who have attended Trump rallies.

And the theme of ‘violence’ of course takes the place of actual discussion of Trump’s ideas.

So the Republican establishment has sunk to a new low. They are allying themselves with the Communists, the anarchists, the BLM rabble, the loudmouth campus leftists who routinely deny free speech to those they disagree with, and, not least, the Muslims who oppose democratic rights for all except themselves.

Many Republican public figures have, of course, allied with these groups in the past, but not all of the Republicans together as one allying themselves with the entire broad range of leftist protestors as a group.

You deserve a lot of credit for making these points; not many on the right have. Maybe a handful, but very few.

If Republican candidates can support the protestors and still call themselves ‘conservatives’, what does it mean when they say they will appoint ‘conservatives to the Supreme Court? I guess it means judges who will tolerate the illegality of the anarchists, communists, and all the other leftists who stifle free speech.

Little Al on March 14, 2016 at 5:39 pm

Preface: I think Soros and his funded protestors should be prosecuted! For anyone to suggest that because it goes unsaid due to its OBVIOUS offense that somehow that is equal to supporting it is insane.

Answer me this: Why when everyone was blaming Cruz for what his campaign people had done or what someone not even sanctioned by Cruz has done weren’t you this fed up then? Turning an “eye for an eye” into a major plank of his platform will NOT fix what ails our nation.

I also agree that Drumpf’s words were not suppressing anyone else’s free speech but rather they were inciting violence and even supporting it, he’s vulgar, rude, insulting and demonizes anyone that doesn’t like or support him. He has no class or character, at least the character that I would want for myself or any family member to have.

Really? “whose ideology suppresses free speech?” Quote by Drumpf in Missouri; “In the old days, they would be carried out on stretchers. There used to be consequences to protesting. There are none anymore.” Or the one from Iowa; “Just knock the hell — I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise.” Or punch protesters in the face and take them out on stretchers.

Granted the entirety of Obama’s repressive regime has fomented despair, delusion and division among the ranks of Republican voters — so much so that some are willing to take leave of their senses and join a cultish movement with a self-promoting charlatan as its head. History is replete with examples of such movements, and the tragic result — the suppression of Liberty.

How damn blind are you – the entire paragraph on inciting and “fighting words”.. you are describing DRUMPF to a “T” and you cannot even see this irony? OMG – how idiotic! Yes, there is such a thing as “fighting words” and Drumpf uses them ALL THE TIME! i.e. incitement just like what we have all been saying about Drumpf’s foul mouth. Drumpf IS responsible for what he says that in most normal, rational minds IS INCITEMENT! Get a clue!

DRUMPF is the one working the Alinsky rules:

* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Do you know why he knows how to work these extreme progressive liberal tactics? BECAUSE HE IS ONE! There isn’t one candidate that is unmarred with negatives, not one, however, Drumpf is at the top of that list! Do you ever think past your emotions? I’m just wondering why you haven’t looked at the fact that over 40% of all Drumpf votes were cross overs from the democratic party… seriously, how blind do you have to be not to see that? And that the GOP “establishment” is not going after him because they know Drumpf will wheel and deal with them – just what the RINO’s want. Couple this with the well known fact that the same establishment also dislikes Cruz. Dense as wood – people are becoming dumber by the day, no by the hour… no… with each lying headline or false news report.

Mitchina, you are a fool. I’m not going to waste time going over your entire blather, but, just to pick one point, how can you say that the GOP establishment is not going after Trump? They are going after him more than they have ever gone after anybody in history!

And ‘peaceful’ union protests during the first part of the 20th century? Like the rabble-rousers of the IWW?

Grow up.

Little Al on March 14, 2016 at 5:55 pm

And Mitchina, you ought to learn the rules of basic English. It is still our language.

Little Al on March 14, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Frankly, the tactics used by the Left are reminiscent of those used by the Nazis and Communists in Weimar Germany. Those parties, through affiliated groups, attacked gatherings of other parties and individuals they did not like. The Left rambles on about oppression and repression, but is perfectly happy to engage in it themselves when it suits their interests.

As for Saul Alinsky, he was a rather interesting fellow. He liked to hang out with Frank Nitti,who was Al Capone’s Second in Command.

The Left is going all out to get rid of Trump now: ‘Make America hate again!’ http://usat.ly/1pjWfWZ

USA Today has gone all in, and has cast off its objectivity mask. Of course, Donald Trump is responsible for the Marxists and Anarchists who attack him and his supporters at rallies.

We are a country in crisis and we’re circling the drain.

We can go the way of Europe or we can be great again.

The thugs who succeeded in shutting down his rally in Chicago showed us our nation’s dark depths and its distressing to witness them with our very own eyes.

In the 1970s, we had such a dark time under Jimmy Carter and found the answer in Ronald Reagan.

Today, we have another dark time under Barack Obama and millions of people are finding the answer in Donald Trump.

Is he perfect? No. Could he do everything he’s promised? I don’t think he can and maybe its asking too much of a flawed, fallible mortal human being.

But we at least deserve the chance to know if we can fix the things we can and put America back on the path of greatness of again. A great America is probably beyond Trump’s abilities – or any President. What he can do is give us hope that it can happen and the American people themselves can do the rest.

In a word, we have to soon decide if we want to be that kind of country again. And in November, we will all have our answer.

It is curious that Ted Cruz had a picture of Andy Griffith(in his sheriff’s outfit)in the background during one of his rallies. Andy Griffith actually was an ardent supporter of Barack Obama and taped public service announcements in support of Obamacare when he was still alive. Ted, are you as much of an actor as Andy was?

Cruz is a giant phony. He was a DC lawyer, then a George W. Bush policy adviser, then a Bush justice department official.

He met his wife while working for Bush. She’s a bigwig at Goldman who had previously worked for Condi Rice.

These people are the ultimate insiders. I have no idea why establishment Republicans claim to hate Cruz. He’s clearly one of them.

Could it be that those who sought to disrupt Trump’s rally were Republicans who want “anyone but Trump”?

I grew up in Illinois. It’s a winner-take-all state. Historically on paper, Kasich should be a strong candidate there. If Kasich wins Ohio, his campaign survives. If he wins Illinois AND Ohio, his delegate count will take a big boost.

I’m just trying to “think outside of the box” here. I’m not certain that this is what’s really going on, but would be interested in your readers’ thoughts.

Last summer, the anthropological source “Psychology Today” wrote an article of the conditional behavior of human-nature titled “Anti-Intellectualism is ruining America” (something to that degree, I forgot the precise title’s name), but nowadays from the way I view it, our left-wing friends are now being the worst offenders of this philosophical-dilemma of anti-intellectualism of allegedly shutting down speeches that they’re antithetical to.

In the real world, you’re suppose to expose yourself to MANY viewpoints, that’s the beauty of freedom of speech/press/expression, etc., NOT live in your own bubble having yourself distance from opposing views.

And I to have seen the imbecility of the left-wing’s metaphysical argument of conflating Trump to Hitler, by comparing Trump to Hitler’s social policy is intellectually embarrassing, Mr. Trump according to my estimation hasn’t announced that he wants to send certain community of folks into a prison camp or any mechanic relating to that. Insofar, if you want to make such a comparison, you can argue with Trump’s economic and financial rhetoric, whereby to me is full of fallacies. He argues that he’s for business, but hasn’t said a word about the market, where being pro-business and pro-market don’t correlate with each other and have different meanings to it!

What I found disturbing about the Chicago chaos, was the amount of Blacks that were shown swinging and fighting. My thought on this, is “why are you involving yourself in this?” He hasn’t mentioned Black except recently about Chicago unemployment. I realise it’s Chicago and we are aware of the murder rate, so it’s full of slugs.
Now these NAACP people compared him to the Jim Crow era and he’s a racist in Blue Suit. Just ridiculous. It’s ashame they run with this narrative and can’t back it up, and label the guy like this. Publicly calling someone a racist and going on a crusade doing so, people should be able to sue for libel. It’s a serious accusation.

Those slugs in Chicago were jumping and chanting Bernie like it was a Duke basketball game; bouncing up and down. Hopefully Donald hand Rubios butt to him. Kasich prob gon eek out Ohio.

Trump’s daughter-in-law Vanessa Haydon had a Jewish father. So right now, all of Trump’s grandchildren are at least of partially Jewish descent (and as he said, two are Orthodox with one on the way).

I get that Trump’s plain speaking offends a lot of people.

He’s a refreshing contrast to the usual politician with their cautious language and unwillingness to say what’s needed out of fear of losing votes.

That kind of authentic humanity is rare to find in people these days and Trump’s listeners feel like they’re in the presence of someone who thinks like them rather than people who need to be talked down to.

Trump doesn’t have a coherent philosophy or well-thought world view but he does embody common sense and street smarts. That’s ridiculed and looked down on these days but its an attitude that looks at the world as it is, not how we would like it to be.

And for people not comfortable with that, it comes across as a rude awakening. Human nature being what it is, few people like having their comfort zone disturbed.

But that’s no reason to take it out on Trump and his supporters the way violent thugs did in Chicago on Friday.

I noticed CAIR is getting involved in the get-Trump cabal No doubt, Trump has made enemies with BLM, La Raza, CAIR, ISIS, and so on. Seriously, I am starting to worry about some nut shooting him at one of these rallies. Remember when Reagan was shot?

The old guy who sucker punched the BLM protestor, can I get that on a T-shirt? That was awesome!

Noelle's bootcut kitten pants on March 15, 2016 at 6:57 am

To continue from Twitter all these protesters are unequivocally at fault. A private event is NOT a public forum. A private event can be inciteful and discriminatory. Louis Farrakhan holds private events that are despicable. If I went to his event and protested he has every right to tell me to leave. And if I refused then I would considered as trespassing or disorderly conduct. This Trump fiasco with these protesters is so cut and dry the media is willfully playing dumb. Let me go on their studio set and protest and they would remove me by force with security guards and I could be charge with trespassing and disorderly conduct. Why pundits and spokespersons can’t emphatically get this point across is beyond me. THEY ARE LAWBREAKING AND HAVE NO LEGAL GROUND TO STAND ON…There is no nuances about this..

It appears to me that the Establishment is scared s*itless about Trump.
Many many Establishment types are saying something to the effect it’s partly Trump’s fault that violence is occuring; his “hate speech,” his “violent rhetoric,” et al etc.
Are they saying that Islamic terrorism is partly “our” fault as well? I mean, how many times have we all heard that “we” need to tone down the rhetoric because “we” must be “more tolerant” and we must “understand” the cultures they come from because they might be “offended” and resort to “violent tactics”?
In other words…more “outreach,” “cultural understanding,” and more “dialogue”: Establishment B.S.
Democan or Republicrat- You decide.
…and to think, Cruz is some alleged Constitutional Guru. …

I am very tired and fed-up with all the socialist /communist / fascist / royalty / dictator / elitist / charlatans who seek political office so society may be directed by them towards a so-called heavenly paradise on earth.

However, when reality appears, one sees that the above crowd has stolen, coerced, taxed, misdirected, and swindled the general populace of their hard-earned assets and their freedoms.

The Keynesian economic fantasy, i.e. QEs, Bailouts, Fiat Currency, Fractional Reserve Banking, No Collateral Loans, etc. has eaten our lunches and future. An honest effort politician will only be able to slow the collapse so a rescue plan can be created and implemented, but that will then show what many politicians are: slithering crooks in a pay-to-play, go-along…get-along system of screw the general populace.

So, now I ask all to explore realistic suggestions and options of what to do and where to go should the worst happen and a “socialist-progressive” is elected.

I believe the goal of the PLAYERS is their collective goal of Global Governance. I hope we have a real choice in this election and that all the hype is not just “Window Dressing”.

So,to quote ARAGORN: “…I bid you stand! Men of the West!”

WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONALLY-LIMITED REPUBLIC-SO, KEEP IT!

Shouldn’t the press be fawning over Mr. McGraw? I mean he is the oldest participant of the knock out game, and as such deserves glorification from the media.

The problem I have with Trump is he will not live up to his word. The rest of the field is useless. I think USA last chance was Ross Perot in 1992. Rudy Guillani had no chance because of social conservatives. It may have been too late already because of Bush immigration policy and belief in the religion of peace.
Remember that Ross Perot did not endorse Pat Buchanan in 2000. The one of the thing that was likeable about Trump was he also was against Pitchfork Pat. Pat want USA military intervention for the Nazi supporting Croats. The only amen chorus was from the Roman Catholic church.

Also the southern Syrian prevented, with the help of the British, Jew returning to their homeland up until 1948. Million of Jew would have escaped the holocaust. The west should not open our land to the Syrians. They could go to Arabia.
The Jews have more legitimate to right to Medina and other area in Arabia than Muslim and Arab to single inch of the land of Israel.

Dennis has provided us with a deadly accurate required reading short article on what’s wrong, why and what’s happening. But unlike previous times when the human race, particularly America, has faced the hardest of times, now, . . .

we have only the immortal words of Martha Reeves and The Vandellas.

“Nowhere to run to baby, nowhere to hide.”

And now the latest from The Great Dumboni, The Resident Dumb Blond(e)

The train is barreling down the track,
The throttle is notched all the way back,
In the party cars our leaders feast on the people,
Many folks in our churches are not worth the steeple,
The culture has turned to complete trash,
Our language is becoming an unintelligible mash,
Clickety, clickety, clickety, clack,
Methinks the engineer and crew are on crack.

Great post Debbie as always. Per this time of day I’m usually eating lunch but I had to take a break and read what you wrote here. It strikes me as funny that everyone from the news media, Killary, Commie Bernie and RINO Kasich blaming Trump for the actions of leftwing morons at his rallies. Also the fact that Ted Cruz is also blaming him. Now the first three losers I can understand but Cruz who is supposed to be a conservative should know better but he doesn’t. It looks like he’ll pull any dirty trick to win. He’s starting to look more and more like Snidley Whiplash from the old Dudley Do-Right cartoons. I didn’t hear a peep out of any of these bozos back in 2008 when Obama croaked out during one of his hope and change speeches that the demo-drones in the audience should get into their political opponents faces. Imagine that a person running for president telling his supporters to get into their neighbors faces and argue with them. Now fast forward to 2016 and you have the same leftwad tactics used against Trump. People you have to ask yourselves why the left and right (by that I mean RINOs) are so afraid of him. So much so that the establishment (who Cruz says he’s not a part of but we know that’s a lie) is slowly getting behind Teddy. It does my heart good though when losers like Rove, Perino, Lowery and Goldberg get all bent out of shape at the mere mention of Trump’s name. It was also great to see that Mr. McGraw take it to that bum Jones and the leftwing morons crying foul about it. Are they serious? There have been countless times were older White people have been hurt or killed by the knock out game by thugs like Jones and this case was that in reverse. Hopefully next time Jones’ middle finger will be stuck where the sun don’t shine should he rear his ugly head at future rallies. One can only hope.

A couple of other points”

Many pundits, both liberal and me-too conservative have questioned why Trump chose to speak at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a campus which is majority non-white, and where many professors have protested against his being allowed to speak there.

Aside from obvious issues of free speech there is a second consideration. We know that in Paris and other parts of the world, including the United States, there are Muslim neighborhoods where the police are very reluctant to enter. This is also true of Black neighborhoods, and, more and more, Latino neighborhoods. Do we really want to expand these forbidden neighborhoods to include major campuses?

And re the participation of Black Lives Matter? Of course Trump has antagonized them. He has said on occasion that All Lives Matter. The nerve! He has also praised the police in many of his talks. He praises those who enforce the law rather than those like BLM who violate and encourage violation of the law.

But there is another consideration. Remember that the police and mayor of Chicago have been under constant attack by Blacks. Chicago’s mayor has committed the unforgivable sin of closing a number of schools, including schools in Black areas that are under-performing and under-attended. There have also been isolated cases where the police have allegedly over-reacted. So the mayor and police are vulnerable.

Wouldn’t the presence of BLM at the disruption Friday make it more difficult for the police to do their job of dispersing the protestors because the police are walking on eggshells?

And, tit-for-tat. Disruptors are just like terrorists. Terrorists in one part of the world invariably support the campaigns of terrorists in other parts of the world. Same with disruptors. The Communists, Socialists, Muslims, etc. cherish the support of BLM because it protects them to some extent from police retaliation, given the climate in Chicago. And, of course, they, in turn, will support BLM’s next escapade, as they have already done in Ferguson, University of Missouri, and other places.

Finally, to get to the ludicrous, we have the example of Dennis Praeger. Yesterday, he said (and he deserves credit for this) that he condemned the disruptors, and he also criticized the other Republican candidates for not taking the same position.

The anti-Trump police must have gotten after him, because today he criticized Trump’s comments about body parts saying this made him ashamed to discuss his country with his grandchildren. Not a word of course about Rubio’s initiation of this dialogue, or any other cultural activities which might make him ashamed.

    Nearly all of the Salem Radio Network (SRN) hosts/commentators have similar viewpoints regarding establishment Republican candidates; dump Trump at all costs.

And of course, all these groups support all these activities because they are attacks on the evil White capitalist power structure.

In the Adam Taxin picture, I like the use of the Islamic eight pointed star, combined specifically on a yellow background, and carefully placed to make it seem like the Muslims are the new Jews and therefore implicitly the victims, that when their religion commands and they enthusiastically proceed and attempt to murder the infidel and in particular we Jews until are all dead and the entire world belongs to Islam – just like the Nazis did with whom they worked so diligently in WWII to murder our people. It’s the truth again turned upside down for the subliminal brainwashing of the gullible masses. And don’t forget the one wrapped in a red white and blue head covering and the other wrapped in our American Flag with a USA t-shirt attempting to hijack the identity of our country.

Does Donald Trump have any Israeli investments?
Is he following the Muslim/Arab ban on Israeli and when you get down to it Jews?
Can you find any Jewish oil Professional in Saudi or other Arab countries?
Of course Obama ignore that discrimination and is worried about quota for unqualified people, except for basketball and football players.

All this crap is making Trump look much better than he is. I think Deb is right about not holding the leftist rebel rousers accountable, but I’m still of the opinion that Trump is a rude load mouth who doesn’t really know what he is getting into, is not a conservative and can’t solve beans.

DaveC on March 15, 2016 at 2:25 pm

The biggest thing to come out of this fracas over Trump is that Ted Cruz is not what he portrays himself to be, namely a Populist Conservative. He is in fact as Establishment Republican as his opponents. Cruz’s recent comments about Trump and trying to tie Leftist violence to him has become sickening. Teddy must be trolling for that Mitt Romney endorsement after Rubio finally chokes.

There are many things I wish GW had done as president. One of those is attack those who compared him to Hitler. He should have started a national conversation on who and what Hitler was. Apparently, very few people really know, or they wouldn’t be so flippant in comparing those with whom they disagree to Hitler. All they are doing is minimizing the horror the man created. Enough is enough with the Hitler references. Until someone kills 10 million people, it should be off limits.

I hope Trump declares Martial Law in Chicago Southside and get that city in order. The good residents would appreciate it later. At first No, but in the end, the will be thankful, or a serious implementation of Stop and Frisk. Chicago is gross.

Former president Ronald Reagan used the slogan “Let’s make America great again” in 1980. During a general election address in 1950, Margaret Thatcher said that her goal was to “make Britain great again.” President of the Philippines Ferdinand E. Marcos once promised “with the help of the masses to make this country great again.”

So why do “they” say Trump took this phrase from Hitler? This is wrong, so wrong because people believe this mess.

MrBigBrain on March 15, 2016 at 7:06 pm

The apt Hitler comparison is with the Leftists who use brownshirt tactics to disrupt speech & expression they don’t want to — or can’t — refute through civil argument & debate.
