Violent Anti-Trump Protestors Go Wild after San Jose Event

Violent Anti-Trump Protestors Go Wild after San Jose Event

Egg-throwing, bottle-chucking, sucker-punching agitators continue pattern of leftist campaign violence

San Jose media appears to be following the same template used by San Diego’s press last Friday: Make the focus of the Donald Trump rally reports the protests that occur after the event, instead of the thousands of enthusiastic supporters who attended.

During the rally within an annex of the San Jose Convention Center, Trump addressed about 5,000 Californians. Interestingly, his remarks included sharp retorts to Hillary Clinton’s supposed “national security” speech in San Diego that was mainly a tirade against the GOP’s presumptive nominee:

Trump shot back at Hillary Clinton to the delight of several thousand raucous fans in San Jose, mocking her for claiming Thursday that he was too “thin-skinned” to be commander-in-chief.

“I watched Hillary today. It was pathetic. It was so sad to watch,” Trump told a crowd of about 4,000 that filled up about one-third of the football field-sized South Hall at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center.

“When you watch her today, she does not look presidential. This is not a president. Four more years of this stuff and we’re not going to have a country anymore.”

As occurred in San Diego, demonstrators waited until the conclusion of event to begin spreading their special brand of peace, love and tolerance. In contrast to my home town, it appears that San Jose’s anti-Trump crowd was substantially more hostile and less under control.

Police are working to clear hundreds of protesters who gathered outside Donald Trump’s rally in San Jose late Thursday.

Several supporters of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee were seen chased and taunted by protesters outside the San Jose Convention Center. Protesters also surrounded a woman and threw eggs and bottles at her.

“It was unbelievable,” said Steve Tong, a Cupertino resident who attended the Trump rally.

Tong said after the rally he was walking toward a nearby parking structure and saw protesters surrounding and taunting an elderly couple.

“I’ve never seen anything like that in America before,” Tong said.

Tong also said he saw protesters smash car windows inside the parking structure.

Here are a few of the images that shocked Tong:

These details makes me grateful for the “tanks” and “martial law” implemented by the San Diego Police Department.

Social media was filled with on-the-scene reports of violence, which apparently erupted magically from seemingly nowhere (at least reading their accounts)!

Trump believes he can make California electorally competitive again:

“I’ve been told by all these brilliant guys you can’t win California,” he said. “I think we can. And if we win California, the election is over. We win. And then we will make America great again.

Maybe. But he will surely pick up votes from Californians who resent the thuggish tactics of egg-throwing, car-stomping, Mexican-flag-waving bullies. Perhaps there are enough in the state to make a critical difference?

If so, it will be YUGE!

How many of those thugs are able to vote, and how many will actually get up off their asses for something as boring as voting?

    casualobserver in reply to scaulen. | June 3, 2016 at 9:30 am

    No doubt many are paid. It’s my hunch that the most aggressive and violent of the bunch are mostly likely the “pros” that are somehow compensated to make the risks worthwhile (risk of police action). Some of the more passive types with banners and perhaps screaming might be more “organic”.

      Subotai Bahadur in reply to casualobserver. | June 3, 2016 at 2:04 pm

      In California, there is minimal possibility of any police reaction, as the police are controlled by the Left. Witness the mayor of San Jose who excused and justified the attacks on Trump supporters in the streets, because . . .”Trump”.

      I hope that some conservative organization is using photos, video, facial recognition technology, public records and private investigators to track these thugs back to their root organization and their funding sources. All of them should be doxxed.

    forksdad in reply to scaulen. | June 3, 2016 at 9:57 am

    How many can vote? All of them. This is America after all where entire districts went 100% with no errors for Obama. Democrat districts will let anyone vote with a pulse. I have seen it. I watched people I knew to be illegal aliens register to vote. I was required to ask them if they wanted to. I would be fired for questioning this in any way.

    We’ve already let them in. Now they get what they want.

    Or we can take it back. You decide what country you want to live in because option A. ‘What’s good for the elites’, and option B. ‘What’s good for everyone else’ are the only ones on the table.

      Milwaukee in reply to forksdad. | June 3, 2016 at 10:37 am

      “This is America after all where entire districts went 100% with no errors for Obama. Democrat districts will let anyone vote with a pulse.

      Hahahahaha….. That is too rich. Hells Bells. Wake up! They let people vote without a pulse (the voter, not the Democrat). The Democrats are without morals.

      Now you have clearly self-identified as a racists hater. Don’t you know there aren’t convictions for voter fraud because voter fraud doesn’t exist? Ask them, they will tell you that.

      We can chat about this in greater detail, if we are assigned to the same re-education camp.

        Paul in reply to Milwaukee. | June 3, 2016 at 7:01 pm

        You would go to a reeducation camp? Personally I would rather die, and take about 100 of the prog scum with me, before submitting to that.

      MattMusson in reply to forksdad. | June 3, 2016 at 11:03 am

      You do not need a pulse to vote. The CBS local in Los Angeles just checked and found 125 dead voters who have been casting votes. Some have voted in 8 elections since they died.

      You do not get 100% voting without poll worker participation. After closing the polls they lock the doors then print out a list of those who did not show. Then, poll workers vote for those no shows.

      Unfortunately, voter id laws will not stop this type of whole sale voter fraud.

    forksdad in reply to scaulen. | June 3, 2016 at 10:36 am

    As if it matters who votes in a democrat district. It only matters who count the votes. Over 100% of votes cast entirely for Obama? No mistakes, no missed chads, no nothing but Obama. That’s not possible anywhere.

    But they don’t pretend anything different anymore. The GOPe doesn’t even challenge them. All they ask is for them to use some lubricant next time please.

    This is it. This is our reward for letting in an endless stream of fake voters for democrats. For what? So that GOPe types, Tyson Chicken types, ‘crops rotting in the field types’ can have cheap stoop labor. So that virtually every politician and every lazy, unethical ass can have cheap domestic help.

    This is what our country was sold for? This is what my boy died for? You people who are going to stand back and watch my country burn because yours isn’t being bothered yet, you deserve what’s coming. That woman could have been your mother, your sister, your wife or daughter but you let those beasts do that.

    And when will they stop? Why not beat and rape her? Who would stop them? No one. They just haven’t worked up the guts yet. It wasn’t dark enough for them to be sure they could get away with it.

    If the media keeps averting their eyes, if the GOPe types keep holding up the hems of their skirts and wrinkling their noses up, if the man-boy, milk-livered cowards keep falling on their fainting couches every time they hear no not hear just get near the idea that America might come first in America, then they will be the ones responsible for allowing this to happen.

      CloseTheFed in reply to forksdad. | June 3, 2016 at 7:59 pm

      I’m sorry you lost your son.

      As for the GOPe challenging this, it’s my recollection they agreed to some lawsuit settlement a decade or two ago, wherein they agreed not to challenge fraudulent voting.

      Seriously.

      Anyone else remember the details on this?

        Remembering the details is okay, but at this point all anyone needs to remember is the GOPe once against sold us out. They – and that scumbag Ryan – will continue selling out to the left. They’re as much prostitutes a Hillary Clinton.

        We got rid of Cantor, boehner, Romney, Bush, etc. – we need to continue our work, and get rid of McConnell, Ryan, McCain, etc. Or just ditch the GOP and get on with the Tea Party.

    rabidfox in reply to scaulen. | June 3, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    Oh they will vote, probably multiple times.

At least it probably was a free range egg…

If this is how the general is going to play ou – even with a biased MSM – there’s no way they can ignore what these thugs are doing at every single rally.

    forksdad in reply to Kondor77. | June 3, 2016 at 10:01 am

    Yes they can. And they can blame Trump supporters until the end and virtue signal all the way. The only way to end this crap is to win and win so big that their cheating doesn’t matter.

    Or live in Mexico North. You only get two choices. You’ve been running straight towards one for the last thirty years. Last chance to put on the brakes. Next election cycle? It’ll be too late for a peaceful resolution.

      Kondor77 in reply to forksdad. | June 3, 2016 at 10:15 am

      It would be their biggest bury job ever. And a MSM that hangs on every word and movement that Donald does, it’ll be impossible for them to ignore the second he starts tweeting about it. I mean they covered his car convoy when he met with Paul Ryan…white ford bronco anyone?

      A lot of these videos were taken not by ‘Trump’Bart reporters, but by other ‘new’ media like Buzzfeed (ugh) and freelance reporters. Even local news did a splendid job of covering some of the worst acts of violence. I really do think that if these riots continue there will be no way the MSM can ignore it like it usually does.

CloseTheFed | June 3, 2016 at 8:48 am

In the mid-80s, Ronald Reagan asked us to agree to amnesty for 1 1/2 million illegal aliens out of compassion; that we would do it the one time, and never do it again…. That we would enforce immigration laws henceforth.

Most Americans, myself included, didn’t want to do it. But Reagan persuaded….

If he could see this today, like his decision to approve abortion, he would know he made an error and a very costly error…. Now, all these foreign illegal aliens, tell us how horrible we are, so they can get our tax money and use our hospitals, our schools, our roads, and tell us that the nation that was built by us and our ancestors FOR US, is a nation we don’t belong in.

They can kiss my ass. Build the wall, build a moat, put alligators in it, and machine guns on the turrets.

This is invasion; under the Constitution we are entitled to be protected from it. Enough guilt-inducing to steal from us. These folks are selfish and playing us for saps. No more.

The lede story by Leon Wolf on Red State this morning is how Trump is a racist for calling out the judge on the Trump U trial. It features the picture of Trump eating tacos on Cinco de Mayo. A favored picture by the never Trump crowd.
I don’t see very many American citizens in the Soros funded, anti Trump rent a mobs.

Common Sense | June 3, 2016 at 9:11 am

The anti-Trump violent protesters in San Jose, Ca are nothing but wild animals. If they want to act in an illegal manner and attack people who are doing nothing but exercising their right to attend a rally then they need to be treated like wild animals.

Notice what that dam media there wants to blame Trump for the violence. Well he said X so we can beat the hell out of people attending his rally.

Soon the Trump supporters are going to get tried of being beat up for no reason!

    Immolate in reply to Common Sense. | June 3, 2016 at 4:03 pm

    Why were they not ready this time? Do they honestly expect the police to protect them? They should be ready, willing and able to repel boarders at all times, and especially in hostile territory.

    Frankly, I’m surprised that Trump supporters didn’t mount an effective resistance. They seem quite fierce on the intertubes.

      Eskyman in reply to Immolate. | June 3, 2016 at 5:30 pm

      The 2nd Amendment does not exist in California.

      We are disarmed for a reason; the same reason that the police in San Diego did nothing but watch, as Trump supporters were assaulted.

      jack burns in reply to Immolate. | June 3, 2016 at 10:39 pm

      True. Why they are still being sand bagged at this stage is inexcusable. Get organized and weaponized.

“BREAKING: The police in San Jose have appeared to lost control. Trump supporters being terrorized and beaten up by mobs of protestors.
— Tom Llamas (@TomLlamasABC) June 3, 2016”

Of course they did it in California, where people are increasingly denied the right of self defense.

In Florida…there may have been consequence, though perhaps not, since those with CCWs are even less likely to be involve in crime than even police officers and practice judicious restraint.

Just another example of “daycare kids” not getting enough attention as a child. That, and the $3500 paycheck. Well, probably cash and undeclared income. The IRS should investigate. (Snork!)

casualobserver | June 3, 2016 at 9:29 am

The mobs seem larger and much more active and prevalent in CA than in the other states, some where there is hardly a protest. Seems like an indictment of the state and what the rent-a-mobs expect to get away with.

I’m not sure the counter-effect will last until election day, but I have little doubt this is helping Trump win supporters. Especially the flag waving and burning.

    CloseTheFed in reply to casualobserver. | June 3, 2016 at 10:06 am

    In the mid-90s, Californians noticed their state was turning into an illegal alien paradise and tried to stop it, via a proposition the number of which I forget. In any event, it would have denied numerous non-emergency benefits to illegal aliens. It passed easily.

    Then a usurping federal judge overturned it, Gray Davis became governor, and failed to appeal the decision, and now California has become what Californians tried to stop: a place where the majority of children are either illegal aliens or children of illegal aliens.

    Georgiafornia is next.

    Texas suffered the same garbage in 1982 in Plyer v. Doe, a SCOTUS “decision” wherein they declared Texas had to let illegal aliens attend public schools without paying tuition.

    Nothing but policy discussed. Not one constitutional principal. Jefferson was right when he said impeachment was already a mere scarecrow and judges didn’t fear it in the slightest.

    It’s time to change that; it’s past time to begin impeach judging in earnest.

Morning Sunshine | June 3, 2016 at 9:30 am

not a trump fan here, but I am starting to hope he wins just to BUILD THAT WALL. Even if it is not a physical wall, but our army posted on the border with instructions to stop, detain and deport.

AZTLAN has been invading our country for decades. Some of us have seen it. I hope that their tactics at Trump rallies are showing the here-to-fore-blind that it is an invasion.

    I am of a mixed mind if it will actually happen, but I would not be surprised if California actually tried secede if Trump is elected.
    What I see if things become drastic, is that California will split into two states. One seceding and one staying.

    Eventually the one seceding will come back begging to be let back in, of course.

      forksdad in reply to RodFC. | June 3, 2016 at 10:44 am

      Let them try. We fought a war against our own people. The bloodiest war we ever fought in our history the last time our own tried it. Let these illegals and their narco terrorist buddies backed by the Mexican government try it.

      My great great grandfather fought as did every single one of his brothers he’s the only one who came home. Please God do not let this happen again. But if it does happen let me be in front. If I just stop a bullet meant for a better man it would be worth it.

      Barry in reply to RodFC. | June 3, 2016 at 6:17 pm

      I’ll support California seceding. The sooner the better. We’ll have to supply a one time relocation program for the sane of course, that wish to get out. Citizens only.

        Barry in reply to Barry. | June 3, 2016 at 8:34 pm

        I thought I would come back here and revise what I said. Events in California tick me off, not just the most recent. I would prefer to fight for California, and kick out the illegal scum that cause 90% of the problems.

      CloseTheFed in reply to RodFC. | June 3, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      Dear Rod FC,

      I’d like for California to secede. It would be good to have a peaceful precedent of secession.

      After all, the truth is, the federal government is completely and utterly out of control and the federal judges are out of control, and all we get told by the GOPe, is that nothing can be done.

      Like hell.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to Morning Sunshine. | June 3, 2016 at 2:09 pm

    >>>>”with instructions to stop, detain and deport.”<<<<

    With all due respect, this is an invasion by a foreign country. The proper orders are to defend the country with deadly force with weapons free.

Capitalist Infidel | June 3, 2016 at 9:37 am

Instead of calling them “protesters” let’s call them what they really are, “democrat voters.”

Lots of Mexican flag only American flag I saw was being burned

    Xenomethean in reply to Aggie95. | June 4, 2016 at 12:22 am

    In my book, I consider the burning of the American flag on American soil an act of war. Flying another nation’s flag while doing so should be seen as a form of invasion that is spreading through this nation. The only people who can stop this invasion is the people. This is what the 2A was meant for and to force the government on the right track from wince it came.

Albigensian | June 3, 2016 at 9:55 am

Would it be a cheap shot to consider whether the concept of psychological projection might be relevant when these “protesters” accuse Trump and his supporters of being “fascist”?

Perhaps it’s over the top to compare this behavior with brownshirts (and, fortunately, the overall threat is not close to comparable). Nonetheless, the protesters’ behavior surely looks a lot more like actual fascism than does anything within the Trump campaign.

    forksdad in reply to Albigensian. | June 3, 2016 at 10:08 am

    Cheap shot? No. This is the way politics are run in third world countries. We’ve imported sixty million of them in the last fifty years now we wonder where our country went.

    The high trust, high morals, high value country we had is now Mexico North for a goodly chunk of the South West. Democrats are trying to cement their population replacement victory.

    Two choices. You either vote against these mobs and their democrat GOPe elite enablers or you don’t. Now for some of you that’s fine. The elites do great in Latin American countries. You get cheap labor, servants you can boss around and everything is good. But for those of us who have to watch their children assaulted by illegals, who have their friends and neighbors murdered by illegals who have the local real estate office pack them twenty to a dwelling with drug money as payment. These Americans might want their country back.

    Last chance to do it peacefully.

    Cheap shot? No. It’d be accurate.

Leslie when I heard of these riots, I thought of San Diego.

In Albuquerque a nonpartisan vendor who made Tshirts for both left and right had a some of his shirts taken and burned. Their are ample photographs and a person responsible has made staements on social media, but the police are doing nothing.

In San Jose, there are images of police standing by doing nothing. Apparently the local political infrastructure basically leans heavily towards Hillary. Apparently the police were ordered to give them room to protest ala Baltimore Mayor’s hyphens order last summer.

What was the political situation like in San Diego.

    I don’t know if it is because our mayor Kevin Falcouner is a Republican or if it is because our Police Chief Shelly Zimmerman is the Xena Warrior Princess of police departments, but our band of rioters was contained, controlled, and very unhappy they were not allowed to run amok.

    Valerie in reply to RodFC. | June 3, 2016 at 5:16 pm

    I am also in San Diego, a transplant as of about six years ago.

    San Diego is different from other parts of California, in that it is generally well-run. San Diego is where Gay Pride Day is very deliberately family-friendly, and where the OWS organizers co-operated with the police when things started to get out-of-hand. During the last fire season, there was an enormous effort as the season started to clear underbrush throughout the city. Before the start of this El Nino season, the city’s reservoirs were at 99% through conservation, and new holding capacity was put on-line in time to capture some of the extra rain.

    They are definitely doing something right down at city hall. It has to do with co-operation across the political spectrum, and perhaps a streak of reasonableness.

inspectorudy | June 3, 2016 at 10:19 am

I am certainly no Trump fan but if this continues and the violence grows, nothing but sympathy for Trump will be the results. What amazes me is that these “Immigrants” come here but bring the things that they left their homes to get away from in the first place. If we continue to allow multiculturalism the only culture left will be foreign and not American!

Say your walking to a Trump rally and your attacked by a bunch of progressive fascist Hillary supporter. What can you do to defend yourself from this mob?

Wack a few over the head with you cane and put them in the hospital?

Pepper spray them?

Pull out your Arkansas toothpick and put half a dozen in the morgue?

Pull out your Glock and kill them?

    Kondor77 in reply to ConradCA. | June 3, 2016 at 11:15 am

    *You’re.

    And no. These punks aren’t worthy of that response. You record them on your phone or wear a go-pro, get police attention, and continue on with your life.

    You don’t go down to their level.

    We are seeing the left self destruct in a way we’ve never seen before. They are doing all this damage to themselves. The media is just waiting (dare I say hoping) for the one Trump supporter to respond in kind. Be the bigger person, and better American.

      ConradCA in reply to Kondor77. | June 3, 2016 at 11:45 am

      When you’re attacked by a bunch of progressive fascists you’re life is in danger. You have the right to defend yourself and that is what I was asking about. What would be the appropriate response and legally where would you stand?

      Vancomycin in reply to Kondor77. | June 3, 2016 at 12:27 pm

      Uh, no. Defending yourself is not “sinking to their level”.

        Kondor77 in reply to Vancomycin. | June 3, 2016 at 1:35 pm

        I guess I should’ve been clearer. I’m not saying to not defend yourself. What I’m trying to say is that you don’t pull out your CW if one of these thugs pushes you or takes away your sign. Outside of imminent danger of death, f*** ’em, and let them self destruct.

        Now if you’re being ground pounded like GZ, then by all means.

          Eskyman in reply to Kondor77. | June 3, 2016 at 5:45 pm

          “Don’t pull out your CW”- LOL, that’s pretty funny!

          Like any of us peons are able to get those. CCWs are only given out to important people like politicians, movie stars, and those who contribute large sums of money to the sheriff’s reelection campaign (and who are on the um, “correct” side of politics.)

          The only thing that is legal to use for self-defense (that I’m aware of) is pepper spray. That may offer some protection against one attacker, but when you’ve got a mob assaulting you then you’re out of luck, out of options, and possibly out of life. Just one sudden bounce of your skull off a curb may be the last thing you’ll ever feel!

buckeyeminuteman | June 3, 2016 at 11:16 am

    iconotastic in reply to buckeyeminuteman. | June 3, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    So policy disagreements makes mob assault by people who claim loyalty to another country acceptable? If this is true then the conservatives should have been physically beating up all Obama supporters in both 2008 and 2012.

    Good to know

      buckeyeminuteman in reply to iconotastic. | June 3, 2016 at 1:26 pm

      I do not condone mob rule or mob violence of any type. I’m simply stating my opinion on the obvious. I thought that is what Legal Insurrection was all about (i.e. there’s nothing legal about violent insurrection).

        iconotastic in reply to buckeyeminuteman. | June 3, 2016 at 5:52 pm

        “I’m simply stating my opinion on the obvious.” No, you are not. Don’t pretend to be stupid, it is unappealing. You discounted the mob assault on this woman (and, by extension, the mob assault on peaceful political supporters) and exploited the assault to snark about a Trump presidency. Implicitly you are signalling that you approve of this treatment of Trump supporters.

        LE is a place to share opinions and thoughts. And my thought is that your post was reprehensible. You might as well have said that the woman, and all Trump supporters, asked for this treatment. At least that would have been an honest opinion.

        forksdad in reply to buckeyeminuteman. | June 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

        No you weren’t. You were taking pleasure in the humiliation and terror of a woman.

        Run off, go enjoy the brutalization of a woman you don’t like because she votes for someone you don’t like. You make me physically ill and if I thought for a moment we were the same species I would consider neutering myself to prevent any more crawling, smirking, cowardly creatures from slithering from under their rocks.

        Since you are clearly without a backbone of any kind. I am saved from self mutilation. Since you have proven yourself to be the kind of creature that enjoys the pain and suffering of weaker people than you, I can safely assume you are no kind of American regardless of your legal citizenship.

    healthguyfsu in reply to buckeyeminuteman. | June 3, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    Are you conceding the election now, bucknut?

This reminds me of when Obama gave the Black Panthers a pass after they violated people’s civil rights.

Trump should have a commercial identifying the groups behind these riots and the funding that Obama provided as part of the BoA settlement. Then equating them with the KKK and Nazis.

He should call on the federal government to prosecute the rioters for civil rights violations. Actually the Republican Party should demand that the FBI treat these criminal just like they treat the KKK when they violate people’s civil rights.

National Guard now

Democrats are in charge and just like they did with the KKK and the Governor did in the Ferguson riots, they will do nothing against their brownshirts.

“surely pick up votes from Californians who resent the thuggish tactics of egg-throwing, car-stomping, Mexican-flag-waving bullies. Perhaps there are enough in the state to make a critical difference?”
This will require imagining Trump himself as a victim and wanting to vote for Trump, the victim. Meantime CA is something like D+8 and voter registration among the youth and Hispanics is up. Not exactly Trump demo.
The reason Trump campaigns in CA is to produce spectacles for national TV hoping that it will move the needle in some other state. Trump fans are ponds in this game.
I very much resent the violent left tactic, but I also know that Trump favors the same from his own: recall how he offered to pay his own violent fan’s legal fees.
Also this is the man who believes that those who “provoke” violence are responsible for it. This was his take on the Draw Mohamed contest, this was his wife’s take on neoNazi online attack on Julia Ioffe. And speaking of neoNazis, what does he have in mind for them?
As I’ve said before, it is very important to be neither with violent lefties nor Trump.

President Obama today denounced the waves of violence directed against Americans engaged in peaceable assembly and exercise of their First Amendment rights, saying, ” “.

I wish one of the many Mexican flags had some how been
set ablaze.

Only seems fair since our flag was being burned!

We need some ex-military folks to show up to protect the Trump supporters. 🙂

VaGentleman | June 3, 2016 at 12:57 pm

      Condemnation from a foul mouthed fool such as you is a badge of honor I will wear proudly.

        Foul-mouthed, huh? What do you think of the online harassment of conservative journalists by neoNazi Trumpistas?

          Judging by the thumbs downs, most involved in this discussion think that the harassment of journalists is a-OK. And please note, nobody in either Clinton or Obama camp was involved in journalist intimidation. This is new.

          “conservative journalists”

          My ass. They’re not conservative and they damn sure aren’t journalists.

          They’re kooks like you.

          Kikes like me, actually.
          And the irony of this being posted on a thread supposedly dedicated to free speech [of Donald Trump].

          You’re the one complaining about free speech by suggesting “journalists” cannot be criticized by “neoNazi Trumpistas”.

          As well as blaming trump for the action of left wing thugs. But then, you are a Clinton voter, par for the course.

          Pastor Niemoller:

          “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

          Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

          Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

          Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

          No it is purely disdain for you and your filthy lies. I would no more care about anything you typed than I would the blatting of a goat or the sound of garbage falling down a chute.

      These rioters are your people Rags. This is exactly what you want to happen. What you believe Trump supporters deserve. What your wish is.

      Are you in that crowd?

      There’s little difference between you and them and come the opportunity you’ll be on the streets doing just what they’re doing now. It’s what you do online so it’s what you’ll do in reality.

      Now go ahead and call me names and swear at me. That’s your usual pattern; ad hominems and vulgar language.

    I don’t think you intentionally misrepresent us. I think you just don’t get us. We want a serious candidate with commitment to the Constitution and limited government, somebody who will stand for liberty both in the US and abroad. This year neither major party has a candidate like this.
    But please don’t allow yourself to be manipulated by an orange conman.

      The “serious” candidate was supposed to have been John Ellis Bush. How well did that work?

        There were plenty of serious candidates to chose from: Walker, Cruz, Jindal, etc.

          Subotai Bahadur in reply to edgeofthesandbox. | June 3, 2016 at 2:18 pm

          And every single one of them lost. For whatever reason, every one of them lost. The choice is binary [I am assuming that “Vichy” French actually runs and gets ignored] at this point. Trump or the backers and supporters of the Brownshirts. All those other candidates are gone this cycle.

          ” Trump or the backers and supporters of the Brownshirts.” Trump has his own vast brownshirt contingent.

          Yes, there were other choices, but I believe that Jeb was the GOP’s intended. The GOP, not the voters. Maybe I should have said GOPe, but that little e is redundant by now.

      VaGentleman in reply to edgeofthesandbox. | June 3, 2016 at 2:14 pm

      I assume you were responding to my post. I agree that we wanted a serious candidate. I agree that neither party has provided one. Nor has the #NeverTrump movement provided one. Absent a 3rd candidate with a real chance of being elected, the choice this year is as I stated above: you can either support Trump or support Hillary by voting / protest voting / not voting. Either the woman coated in egg gets what she wants or the mob gets what they want. I would rather vote for the woman’s choice than the choice of the fascist brown shirts who attacked her.

      The real question the far right #NT crowd should be asking themselves is how they failed to produce an electable candidate during what was a 4 year period that favored their cause. Why were they so inept? It seems to me that the #NT movement is a continuation of that ineptness. If they win they will have exiled themselves from the Republican party, elected a president who is in every way at least as bad as the current one, and fractured, possibly fatally, the conservative movement. That’s if they win. If they lose, if Trump gets elected in spite of their active opposition, they will have exiled themselves from the party, reduced, if not eliminated, the ability of conservatives to influence Trump administration policy, and made conservativism irrelevant. Where’s the win for us?

      #NT claims Trump can be bought – so buy him. If the only positives from a Trump presidency were: control of the borders, good judicial appointments and strong 2nd Amendment protections, we conservatives would be far ahead of where we will be after 4 years of the alternative. Co-opting him is, IMO, a far better policy that destroying him.

        Hillary v Trump is a false dilemma, especially considering that something like 4 in 5 Americans are unhappy with this choice. If you want me to chose the lesser evil, I will have to pick Hillary, at least she’s the devil we know.
        The reason conservatives didn’t produce a winning candidate is two-fold.
        1. Poorly educated celebrity-driven electorate looking for entertainment. An action to take would be switching to Utah-style caucuses:
        https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/06/case-for-reforming-primaries
        2. There were too many conservatives; our field was divided.
        To an extent Trump can be bought. He has his cronies, etc. However, his central governing philosophy can’t change. He believes that might makes right, he identifies with dictators, he has no clue about the Constitution. He will not, all of a sudden, become a free-thinking pro-liberty guy. You can’t buy that. In this situation all I can hope for is to oppose them, and hopefully come back in 2020 with a conservative candidate. And yes, I’m rooting for Hillary, guilty as charged. Under the circumstances this is the best option for the country.

          Ragspierre in reply to edgeofthesandbox. | June 3, 2016 at 2:38 pm

          I violently disagree.

          I will not vote for, support, or “root” for either Collectivist.

          And, no, there is no such canard as a “binary choice”. We all have the choice NOT to support ANY Collectivist puke.

          VaGentleman in reply to edgeofthesandbox. | June 3, 2016 at 2:54 pm

          Hillary v Trump is REALITY. Nothing false about it. You admit it in your post by choosing her over him. Your being unhappy with reality doesn’t change reality.

          If your side had 1/10th the political skills you claim you would have recognized the need to control the caucus procedures and worked to make the reforms necessary. You didn’t – that’s a clear indication of your ineptness. It’s a known problem that you ignored. Having too many candidates fractures the vote and makes insurgencies possible. That’s also a known problem that you ignored. You say you hope to do better in 2020. Hope doesn’t accomplish anything. A list of excuses doesn’t fix anything. You need to find out what’s wrong with YOU and fix that.

          Every criticizism you make of Trump applies even more so to Hillary. Therefore, the conclusion that she is the preferred candidate fails the logic test.

          Rags, I agree about the binary choice. However, when pressed by Trumpistas to chose between the two evils, I have to admit that given the situation I prefer Hillary.

          Of course you would support Hillary. You’re a leftist, clear in every comment you make. You would be voting Hillary no matter who the republicans nominated.

    buckeyeminuteman in reply to maxmillion. | June 3, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    I do believe Trump is the RINO we are discussing here. Most of the Constitution, small-government loving people here don’t even pretend to be Republicans anymore. Trump is in fact the greatest RINO of them all, he’s fleeced so many people.

      Your hero – Cruz – Won primarily in states where people couldn’t vote. Wrap yourself in “constitutional conservatism” while the country is overrun by third worlders who will ensure that conservatives can’t get elected to any office.

      You represent less than 5% of the voting population.

If I may jump in … I was there!!!! And if I may share a few salient facts plus some personal observations –

Our Mayor Sam Liccardo (our choice for mayor last election was between 2 Democrats) claims Mexican decent on his mother’s side, is a product of Harvard and is a big Hillary supporter. I’m sure he was not happy Trump came to San Jose.
Trump was not scheduled for a campaign stop in San Jose at all. This came about because a fundraiser that he was to attend in Atherton (up the peninsula from San Jose, towards SF) was cancelled last minute. Tuesday the campaign decided to hold a rally in SJ, Wednesday free tickets became available online (limit 2 tickets per request.) There was no publicity save word of mouth really and yet there was STILL 5000 in attendance. Our local newspaper the San Jose Mercury/News (motto: Doing Everything We Can To Elect Hillary) only noted the venue was half empty, their words. Given one more day it would have been filled. Not bad!

It was a BIG DEAL to have a rally here! Conservative national candidates never come to Silicon Valley (AKA the Land of the Lost) because the Bay Area is so solidly liberal. This is where you keep your mouth shut about your political views to economically survive. I kind of wonder if that was why his fun raiser was cancelled – the business fallout was too high a price for public support of Trump (think Google, Facebook, et.al.) He is reviled here.

The make up of the rally attendees surprised me. Quite diverse, very much like the area. I attended, not because I’m a Trump supporter, but because I really wanted to see what other conservatives looked like. I was pleased to see so many self-identified Mexican Americans there – totally wasn’t expecting that! Many ever brought home-made signs (personal favorite said something like “Mexican American Millennial for Trump!”) There were blacks in attendance, some proudly wearing Trump shirts (brave!), a group of people from India, older people, a few children, fair amount of women, veterans and LOTS of young adults ( THAT was surprising!!) And pretty much all the 20 somethings were clean cut. So many of them, and all the young men looked like guys you’d let date your daughter.

Inside the venue was convivial, and even walking to there was fine – you had to pass a few dozen protestors with signs and chants but they weren’t overly hostile at all. Democracy in action sort of thing. Leaving the rally was a completely different atmosphere though. There were far more protestors at this point (crowd estimates of around 1000) and they were overtly provocative. They WANTED to start fights. I spoke with three really clean it young men who inadvertently ended up walking in the middle of the protestors on the way to their car and they said they were spit upon repeatedly, called names, sworn at, grabbed, jostled, pushed and had their posters torn out of their hands and torn up. They said they were waiting and expecting to be sucker punched like the one guy in the video (one young man pointed to the perp. and said, “He was following me too!”) They all said there was about 200 men following them, hounding them and not a policeman anywhere in sight – they really felt all on their own. All three thought they made it out OK because they just kept repeating “Peace” and “God loves you” in the nicest way.

Ah! I could go on about the police, the confrontations but I have written too much already! Two last observations: it was really HOT in the venue – almost like the AC wasn’t turned up high enough. Since the rally was less than half capacity that couldn’t be deliberate could it?? Especially since the temps had cooled off outside. It was a lovely evening for a riot.
And finally – I will never again attend another rally for a conservative political candidate. I am an older female who went with my 13 year old granddaughter and I received the message loud and clear: if I am conservative politically and public about it I am not safe. Anything that happens to me is OK because I am a Hater and deserve it. Our mayor observed that there was very little vandalism. That’s because most of the property damaged were the personal vehicles or property of attendees. I’m not the only one who has gotten that message. This is mob rule.

You can all make your snide comments about Trump, but he loves this country. He is not trying to be King or Queen & continue the Ouseless destruction. He may be a little rough around the edges, but I think that he has good intentions, when it comes to our Country. The other existing candidates can’t say that. This country can’t survive a third term of Oblamo, whether in disguise as Hiltary or the illegal moves of the muslim pres.

“Hours before anti-Trump protesters attacked Donald Trump supporters outside the San Jose Convention Center on Thursday evening, potential third-party “#NeverTrump” candidate David A. French tweeted that Trump “incites violence.” ”

http://tinyurl.com/zmmfu2m

The Trump speeches are posted in full, and easily available to anybody who has access to a computer. I have viewed several of them. He has this whole routine for handling hecklers, which is masterful. In the process, he makes it very clear that any violence by his supporters is going to be counterproductive for his campaign. In the speeches I watched, the crowd clearly knew the routine. They all had the message in advance, and enjoyed it hugely.

So what am I supposed to make of David French and his claim that Trump “incites violence?”

    tom swift in reply to Valerie. | June 3, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    What to make of French? Probably that he’s just gone into the same tailspin which ended Cruz.

    Recall that Ted made a similar claim when the violent anti-Trump rioters first became national news; somehow it was Donalds’s fault. Negative vibes, or something—I didn’t pay much attention to the fanciful details, but that “blame the victim” rubbish was when I first realized that Cruz was an intensely unattractive candidate.

Leslie :
No need to respond to this.
I sent this as an attachment, along with other earlier images of earlier violence & persistence of Mexican flags at Trump rallies across the nation to over 80 mostly Republican, some Democrat lawmakers & officials in Colorado. And further to around 20 other Colorado contacts as well for a total in excess of 100.
It’s important we stand against this attempt at rule by paid mobs.
And I don’t care what turd in the catbox or Ragspierre say or lie about to the contrary. I no longer read or care what they or their ilk crap out of their backsides. It all looks & smells the same.
Thank you.

YES! “Electing Donald Trump, one riot at at time.” Thank you so much.

Why are these California riots described s “leftist”. These are anti-white, pro-Mexican deals driven by the La Raza Make America Mexico Again crowd. There are leftist and BLM factions but in CA at least, Mexicans. Know the enemy at least.

    ConradCA in reply to jack burns. | June 4, 2016 at 9:01 am

    Tyrant Obama the Liar gave Dem front organizations including La Raza nearly a billion dollars of the money he extorted from BoA. So he paid for these rioters.

I could care less about the thugs because are and will remain with use forever (unfortunately). What really gets my attention is how the Democrat Party leadership responds.
>
First, they refuse to acknowledge how those who were attending the Trump rally did nothing. Those Trump attendees were peaceful and minding their own business before being attacked.
>
Second, Democrat Party leaders condemned the violence only as an after thought to criticizing Trump.
>
Third, Democrat leaders actually blamed the Trump supporters for the violence when clearly they were not the instigators nor were they violent even after being attacked.
>
Fourth, Democrat leaders do not seem to mind in the least how the Mexican flag is being waved as some sort of rallying banner to get people incited even more.
>
What this tells me is that the leadership of the Democrat party is not the least bit interested in Americans and America. They are only interested in winning so that they can stay in power. They have become the modern day fascists as they demand their power while telling us how we do not know how to run our lives without their oversight. Long, long ago, I was told that the Democrats were the party of the people, today it has become the party of people subjugation.
>
Want proof of their corrupt morals and terrible leadership? Simply look to see how many do not think Hillary should drop out of the race if she is indicted. What other time in this country’s history would this have happened?

    mzk in reply to Cleetus. | June 8, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Remonds me of the Crown Heights pogrom, where the NYT stuck to the narrative of two groups battling each other (instead of Blacks attacking Jews), until one of their reporters got fed up and strated screaming at his own paper to stop lying. Of course, Hell doesn’t freeze over that often.

“Our police officers have done an extremely courageous and professional job so far,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo told the Associated Press by phone. “We’re all still holding our breath to see the outcome of this dangerous and explosive situation.”

The mayor, a Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, criticized Trump for coming to cities and igniting problems that local police departments have to deal with.

“At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,” Liccardo said.

Blame the victims of progressive fascism.

    mzk in reply to ConradCA. | June 8, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    The more I hear from Trump supporters, the more I want him defeated.

    The more I see from Trump opponents, the more I want him elected.

    I wish there was another choice. (Gary Johnson is the worst of all.)

Hillary’s little Helpers are losing ground here.

Great to see

    Nothing like a little Trumpista takeover. A few days ago some character proposed assassinating the Speaker of the House. “Nordic Prince” is making what is supposed to count for high brow comments and he appears to be popular. Old timers are disgusted. Great to see.

      “some character”

      Contrasted with real threats by a writer and Glenn Beck against Trump.

      You are a left wing kook. I can see why you support Hillary.

        It’s interesting to read some liberal editorials about the SJ assaults. While condemning the violence, columnist make it abundantly clear that Trumpistas are not conservative. They are smart people, they understand that there are plenty of voters who would normally back a Republican nominee but are currently unsure/will not.
        I’m not going to make a common cause with them, but, as Tom Nichols, for instance, pointed out, our best case scenario is Hillary winning with less than 50%, out in 2020.
        You — all I need to do to feel inspired to vote against Trump is to check out a thread like this one. Good luck in November.

          “It’s interesting to read some liberal editorials about the SJ assaults.”

          You’re clearly a liberal, so not very surprising.

          And a kook. A kooky liberal.

Yes Jack Burns, your statement fits with what I saw. I listened to chants of “La Raza! La Raza!” as I walked into the rally. SEIU had a presence too (according to posters being held.)

Bringing raw eggs is proof of premeditation. There should have been many more arrests.

Where is the FBI in investigating these violations of civil rights?
