Now that a few hours have passed since Donald Trump canceled a rally due to “security concerns” after protesters infiltrated the pavilion at University of Illinois at Chicago, more concrete details are emerging. It appears that MoveOn, a left-leaning activism organization and network of organizers, is taking partial credit for the troupe of protesters that descended on the rally this evening.
Various pundits and commentators, like Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly, have expressed the opinion that what happened tonight was an assault on the First Amendment.
MoveOn’s mission statement says that they seek to “lower the barriers to participation in our democracy.”
It appears the origin for the violence in Chicago tonight originates from the alignment of various left wing teams: Occupy Wall Street, Anarchists, the Soros funded MoveOn.Org, F**k The Police, Black Lives Matter, and organized with the campaign team of Bernie Sanders

William Charles "Bill" Ayers (born December 26, 1944) is an American elementary education theorist and a former leader in the counterculture movement who opposed U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. He is known for his 1960s radical activism as well as his current work in education reform, curriculum, and instruction. In 1969 he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group with the intent to overthrow imperialism, that conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings (including police stations, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon) during the 1960s and 1970s in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
He is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar. During the 2008 U.S. Presidential campaign, a controversy arose over his contacts with candidate Barack Obama. He is married to Bernardine Dohrn, who was also a leader in the Weather Underground.
