Here's a better view from Inside Edition. (Warning advertising).



There is a better angle of this cowardly attack.

Don't care what the guy was saying. I wonder if Trump denounced this.

Charges have been filed. This is not OK.

There is lots of anger out there. Trump should not throw gas on it.





You don't care what the guy said? What if a white guy showed up at an Obama convention waving his arms yelling the N word at everyone?

Would you think he would get punched?

Would you also stick up for that white guy?

Im curious of what your answers to these questions are.

Let it be noted that I think the cowboy should have been arrested but that doesnt change the fact that that guy may have deserved to get punched.

The lines have already been drawn. I'm not going to Bernie rally and flip everyone off and expect not to get hit.


But you wouldn't get hit. That's the point.

Speaking as someone who has no dog in this fight...may I ask how you know that?

The thug was the ghetto rat going to a trump rally to start some stuff. I'll bet my life that thug has a criminal record and the cowboy doesn't. So yeah ghetto rat is a thug.


I'll take that bet. You've made conclusions based on very little and y our nonsensical profiling is as about as useful as an a-hole on the elbow.

You have proof of that? I think you'll have to wait for someone with too much time on their hands to go to a Bernie rally with the sole intention of causing a scene before you can make that conclusion.

I support Trump. You all call his supporters racist. I would think there is no one in this thread who would like i support Bern. Second, this statement I may was on purpose...



Punk-ass mark is what Captain Braids was....lol..if that was my friend I would never let him forget the time he was keepin it real and an old cracka tried to hit him...", some may interpret that as being racially-based stereotype.


Why would this be a racially-based stereotype. White people cannot say keeping it real? I can't say cracka? Captain Braids...did you see his hair? It is YOU that takes my statement and makes it racially motivated, not me....

By the way everyone, he was charged with assault. I am ok with that. He stood up to someone who was standing up to him. Take away color and tell me what is wrong with that? 78!!!!!

www.msnbc.com...



John McGraw, 78, of Linden was arrested Thursday morning after assaulting Rakeem Jones, who had been protesting at the event. Jones was being escorted out by law enforcement when videos show McGraw punching him.


Watch some of the other videos...

www.washingtonpost.com...

They are not telling black people to leave...they are telling protesters to leave. You are making it about race. Watch them throw out an old white guy with a walker....they throw out anyone who is protesting....

Only a matter of time until a colored person gets lynched at a Trump rally, and if that happens I'm sure we'll have his cheerleaders telling us how those "thugs" had it coming


You must have a deep mind from within which you can reach to pull out these racist absurdities.

What's next? A jew get's pushed at a Trump rally, the next logical step must be a holocaust? I'm sorry but there is no amount of chewing gum to connect your logic here.


I understand where you are coming from , however, these sort of things ARENT uncommon at Trump rallies

And they dont happen at other peoples rallies really, so whats that say about the environment he encourages and the mentality of his supporters.

There is a common thread with this happening around Trump and not other candidates, that is undeniable

There is also a common thread of protestors disrupting the rallies for the sake of their own benefit, with little respect payed to the others around them. It is undeniable that someone is going to sit there silently and have their experience ruined by someone who simply wants to disrupt it.

Just try it. Go up to any group of people listening to someone who is not Trump and start yelling and screaming obscenities at the speaker.

That is an excellent point. BLM interrupted Bernie at a rally. They interrupted Hillary at a rally. No one was punched, kicked or banged up at either of those rallies. Somehow, they managed to not get violent.

I have to say the sheer number of these type videos is suspect to say the least.

I wonder WHO is paying these people to start crap.

Black Panthers,BLM, or is it the DNC or the CLinton campaign itself.

I can only speak for the UK environment but I'd expect to be manhandled out of a Conservative party event if I was shouting abuse and flicking the finger at Prime Minister Cameron lol
I wouldn't be surprised if a few Conservative activists slipped me a punch or two on the way either, but being Britain it would happen in the corridor out of sight of camera phones.
...we're a bit more aware of 'reasonable force' laws here so beat people out of sight of cameras lol

You're right. But they did manage to sit there sheepishly while being insulted from Bernie's pulpit. "Not getting violent" in this case is the same as not doing anything. That's not something to be proud of. That's embarrassing.

And yet even at other rallies when there is disruption there is not violence.

Again there is a common thread, and there is no excuse for violence in the face of protest, it seems that Trump and his supporters are all for the freedom of speech as long as it is their own.

When faced with opposition the standard MO within the ranks is to meet it with violence and nastiness.

You dont see this at Sanders, Hillaries, or even Cruz or Rubio rallies

Even if they were being paid to go in and rabble rouse, it is still no excuse for violence.

Again that speaks more to the mentality of his rally goers and his influence, on many occasion CALLING for violence, calling for someone to be thrown out without a coat, calling for them to be beat the crap out of. he has SAID these things.

Lets not be ignorant of facts because we do not want to look at the truth

Was the guy heckling?
If he was heckling they can ask the guy to leave and carry on with the political rally.
They should have thrown both of them out.
The man who assaulted the person and the heckler.

What it speaks to is the 'liberal' mindset.

I don't like CLinton or Sanders.

I wouldn't be caught dead at one.

Nor would I go to one to hurl insults.

That is as childish as it gets.

You stand up to bullies or you don't. These "protestors" are bullies., belligerents, with no known moral cause or sensible message to protest for, who are disrupting events for their own political gain at the expense of those around them. I wouldn't advocate violence, but full on pacifism has never worked.

Really? Seems to me that without the attention, they tend to go away, as they have pretty much done with Hillary and Bernie. But they seem to keep coming to the Trump rallies. It's because they keep getting messed with, which is a bigger story - that gives them the attention they crave.

No, it's not embarrassing to ignore them. It's smart.

I agree to an extent, but the sheer numbers of Trump rally protestors far outnumbers the one or two times a protestor has disrupted Clinton or Sanders. From the Trump rallies I've seen, the protests occur in wave after wave after wave. If they were left to their own devices—"ignored"—the rally itself would be impossible.
