At least 20 arrested following violent protests after Southern California Trump rally


#1

One Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the area. One man jumped on top of a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the top dented in and other protesters sprayed graffiti on a police car and the venue’s marquee.

Dozens of cars – including those of Trump supporters trying to leave – were stuck in the street as several hundred demonstrators blocked the road, waved Mexican flags and posed for selfies. foxnews.com/us/2016/04/29/at-least-20-arrested-following-violent-protests-after-southern-california-trump-rally.html

…And all of this incited by a man who millions of people want to make our President. Scary.


#3

Actually it came about because of a mob of leftists and other assorted thugs who don’t believe in the 1st Amendment.


#4

The mob was deliberately targeting Trump and Trump supporters.

They were not incited by Trump.

They were incited by anti-Trump people.

Check out: ***who provided the funding for the mob.



#5

I think they’re incited by the policies Trump dreams on implementing.


#6

I’m extremely offended by the political positions of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, but I don’t get on the phone or e-mail all my friends and acquaintences to tell them that we’ve got to get out and shutdown one of there rallies.


#7

In real life, they are incited by paid organizers … for example … by moveon.org … funded by none other than George Soros.

This is America. People can advocate for political positions without violent reprisal. To blame this on Trump and his supporters is disgusting. These are radial left wing extremists who will maim and kill to silence their opposition.


#9

What a sad state our nation is in.

We have Hillary, who shouldn’t get near the White House, and Trump, if elected president, we’ll see riots making this event look like a boy scout rally.

#10

Yes.

And those riots will be funded by Soros.


#11

I doubt it.
These people just found what they believe is an excuse to criminal behavior.

Once the election cycle is over, they will have to move on.


#12

Lot’s of videos of last night’s protests and it look’s like the left is now mobilizing the bottom of the barrel. Police handled things very well on the Atlantic Coast, but last night they needed to crack some heads and didn’t. People could have been killed by that black car. At least though it showed what kind of people hate Trump. Radical Leftists, Mexican nationalists, Militant homosexuals, Black Lives Matters, and street gang members, some of whom flashed gang hand signs for the media.


#13

Incited by??? Save it for someone who won’t know better.


#14

Well. I recall the Reagan years, there were violent protest, mild compared to this or what we’ll see if Trump is elected.

We live a different society today which has no soul, and immorally based self-interests.

You are right about Hillary but totally wrong about Trump! Investigation will reveal the organization behind this event and it will involve the same as Ferguson, Baltimore, Watts; its not hidden anymore.

When we have Mr. Trump as President the rest of us will be able to get to work on repairing the damage to our country. Police will be respected and appreciated. Mobs intent on destruction and harming people, will be stopped. It will be the people doing the work we know needs doing and won’t be blocked by the current pretender.


#16

It won’t matter who’s behind it, but the fact that it will happen and more often than not.

Jim


#17

Always interesting how the Left justifies violent suppression of free speech.

Though liberals do a great deal of talking about hearing other points of view, it sometimes shocks them to learn that there are other points of view.

Things will run smoothly if police just let protesters know, that if they become violent, they’ll be arrested and charged with assault and battery, mob action, vandalism., etc. Get them some court dates, jail time, if applicable, and most of them will behave.

You know, this election cycle it was Trumps supporters who started throwing the first blows regularly. This is just the counter reaction. Yes this particular instance wasn’t Trump supporters behaving badly. But this whole election cycle has become a violent mess, and Trump was the one who got it started. And I fear it’s just going to get worse as we head toward election day if he locks up the nomination from both sides. :frowning:
