Democrats are ramping up their rent-a-mob action aimed directly at GOP front runner, Donald Trump. Last Friday, a bunch of Soros-funded Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, random student and Sanders supporters managed to get a Trump rally in Chicago cancelled upon threat of violence.
The democrat fascists like all good brown shirts celebrated their victory over free speech and the right to peaceably assemble. It looks like the organizing started as soon as Trump announced a rally in Chicago. Social media was thick with leftists getting blocks of tickets at the rally.
One commentator on the Belmont Club (Richard Fernandez, PJM) said the big plan was to have one to several of those blocks near the state rise up as one and rush the stage, hopefully triggering either a riot or deadly force by the Secret Service to protect the candidate (Trump).
The drive by media went into navel gazing mode asking one and all if Trump’s “inflammatory” rhetoric were the cause of the potential violence. Ignore completely the willingness of the left to use violence to shut up the people who disagree with them for a bit and wonder where this is coming from? Trump supporters? Not really, though they seem increasingly ready, willing and able to return fire against leftist provocations. How about Trump himself, who has those leftists who disrupt his rallies bodily removed? Not really, as it is after all, his microphone.
The leftist mobs do not like either the Republican message or the messenger. The real disappointment in all of this was the reaction of the three remaining candidates – Cruz, Rubio and Kasich, all of which joined media and Beltway at some level blaming the threatened violence on Trump. This was an unforced error by Cruz, and thoroughly predictable out of everyone else. Even President Bring-a-Gun-to-a-Knife-Fight, President Get-in-Their-Faces, President Community-Organizer managed to blame Republicans for festivities funded and organized by his side of the political fence. Even his buddy, terrorist Bill Ayers got himself involved.
I believe that Trump is reaching out to people who have a belly full of this sort of leftist foolishness and have had so for decades. These people are the children of those who turned out for Nixon in 1972, Reagan in 1980 and 1984. We haven’t seen their like for a generation and a half.
I can think of no better way to guarantee a 50-state blowout than for the left to continue to loose the inner city mob on the rest of us. While Trump did postpone rallies in both Chicago and Cleveland last weekend, they are not cancelled. I do not think he will cede Chicago to the leftist mob. Pray he does not.
One last thing, the Chicago festivities was a practice run, a warmup if you will for planned disruption in Cleveland during the Republican convention this summer. The protests will be loud, as violent as humanly possible, and above all broadcast and manipulated by the state-controlled media so as to do maximum damage to Republicans at all levels of government. Think of the 1968 riots in Chicago redux.
