Why do Trump supporters turn a blind eye to seeing that the Chicago riot was a reaction to videos of peaceful protesters getting punched, shoved, and roughed up from other Trump rallies? If Trump fans had not been roughing up the small amount of protesters in earlier rallies, WHERE NOT ONE VIDEO exists of the protesters being violent, the Chicago riot wouldn't have happened. You threw the first punch.

We lefties may always be about peace, but you rough us up then we'll fight back. That's what the Chicago riot was. Hypocrite Trump fans pulling the victim card after punching people and roughing them up in all the earlier rallies. Republicans, the party of projection.

I dont agree with everything Trump says. But this violence is almost entirely being instigated by far left thugs.


More likely to be instigated by media manipulation.

They use the soundbites to stir up a nation, rinse and repeat until they get the desired effect.

I don't have stats but I would bet on Trumpet's "popularity" being directly correlated to the amount of airtime and coverage he gets.


Try getting your mindset out a little more. he is hated by all and sundry. but if you spend the time to listen, you cannot hear a thing they say.

All of these weak kneed twits calling him racist bogot blah blah, are fools. He is not saying anything evil, or discriminatory.



I beg to differ.

Outrageous Trump Quotes

You wanted to know why I said " He is using all kinds of rhetoric that seems to spring out of deeply racist issues " and give you examples.

" Laziness is a trait in blacks " Donald Trump

" a well-educated black " Donald Trump

" They’re rapists … some, I assume, are good people " Donald Trump ( as we all know, referencing Mexican immigrants )

" the Japs " Donald Trump

This is why.

You know, you did actually make me pause for thought, I should not have simply included his indefensible racist based comments, I should have also included his inane anti feminist rhetoric also. Forgot he was an all rounder kind of obnoxious person.

One of my favourites....

" You’re disgusting.

To put this into context, Donald Trump said this to the opposing lawyer during a court case when she asked for a medical break to pump breast milk for her three-month-old daughter. "

If, as you say, I am a fool for regarding Trump as a bigot, then I will happily wear that label.

Trump is what you get when you live in a celebrity culture, with an unending supply of celebrity whores who will do / say anything for their 15 minutes. Give the guy a few million $$$ in his back pocket and he is good to go.

How is calling a black guy a black guy racist?

And he is right, alot of the people crossing the border are not families just looking to make a better life for themselves. Google it and read if you don't believe me.

Truth is he is no more a bigot than the rest of the dog and pony show running for president.

I'm sorry, but this country has somehow produced a bunch of people who no longer take responsibility for their own actions......blaming Trump for the violence at his rallies is like blaming a woman for being raped because she wore a short dress, in my book......

I am voting for Trump because I would do ANYTHING to stop Hitlery......AND I like what he has to say.....AND, most importantly...because the BIG boys are running scared from Trump.....Trump is upsetting the very folks who, in my opinion, have DESTROYED America. I personally think it is too late.....America as I grew up with....is OVER......

I LIVE IN chicago and my husband has worked with some of these organizations back in the Bush days when he was protesting against the war in Iraq.......these are VERY organized people.......

At any rate, we can debate and finger point all we want.....but something BIG is going on in this country and we need to keep our eyes VERY WIDE OPEN for THAT....not get all "hey look, Squirrels" on the circus called politics that is going on right now to keep our ADD minds occupied.......

wanna blame someone? blame the media...they are called whores for a reason!!!!!


Well said. It's sickening seeing people blame others for their actions. The progressive terrorists SHOULD be stopped.

it isn't, in and as of itself, but that is not the context of Trump's statements

Google is not necessary for that, simple common sense

Truth is he is no more a bigot than the rest of the dog and pony show running for president.

dog and pony show ...agreed. Have yet to read of any bigoted comments made by the other runners

We all know that Donald Trump likes to bully and insult people by word of mouth, but is he also a physical bully?


All the bullying and promotion of violence I see comes from the left and their media. We have outright sup[port for BLM which promotes and takes part in racism, hate and violence. We have CNN promoting a psycho for attempting to attack Trump on stage, which we all know would be roundly condemned if a right winger did it to a Democrat.

I think a better title would have been: Is Trump a thug? Or is the American (and apparently the British) public too easily incited by words?

All of the Trump complaints are about his words, and rarely about his actions. People are protesting because of what he said, leading me to believe there is a superstition regarding language that cause some people to mentally convulse upon hearing combinations of words, until it is dispersed in a fit of childish rage.

Words and language are very important. There is no superstition. Many of us understand that the spoken word is as powerful as the clenched fist.

Throughout history we can see the words and language of leaders motive entire armies to ready themselves for the bloody battle ahead. Leaders such as Hitler mesmerized an entire nation in to supporting one of the bloodiest regimes in history.

Hitler never killed anyone other than himself. Should we have disregarded his words and only looked at his personal actions?

Of course not. It was his words, and from other charismatic leaders, in which we have learned the power of speech.

So it is my opinion that we must pay close attention to what Trump is saying. He has a very large following and his words can have a great effect on those that listen.

Then try punching someone with a word. Attributing special powers to inanimate objects is the definition of superstition.

I think that he is going to become a nationalist icon. Combined with his support of bullying and totalitarian tactics, this could turn into a mess.


I really don't see how its all Trumps fault all of a sudden. This country has been a cesspool for a while now.

In fact, thats a big part of his appeal as well I think. I haven't seen him say anything racist or sexist but that's all the establishment liars can talk about. He seems to upset alot of the status quo politicians, so thats why I'm getting out for the first time since 2004 and casting my pointless vote for him.

The cognitive dissonance in Trump supporters can be outstanding at times. These violent altercations ONLY happen at Trump events yet somehow Trump isn't the one that should be taking the blame here.

Perhaps you misunderstand. Are emotions superstition? Is fear, anger and excitement superstition? How about love?

It is words that affect emotion. Emotion can dictate or motivate action.

Surely you are not so naive as to say that just because speech cannot directly cause physical harm that they have no power whatsoever.

"The pen is mightier than the sword." I'm sure that idiom exists for a reason, no?

I don't care. I am sick to death of Trump threads. The ATS Titanic is sinking IMO- the sheer amount of Trump threads lowers my expectations for this site as every time I log on it's Trump this or Trump that- It thought this site was about denying ignorance not stating the obvious and jumping on the ever growing bandwagon.

Enough is enough. ATS is not a litmus test.

This thread is hilarious! Anti-Trump supporters continually crash Trump events CAUSING the violence, then liberals turn around and complain there is violence at Trump events. That they caused in the first place!

Why don't you see violent interruptions at Trump/Hillary events? Think about it.

Do you think Cleveland is buying 2000 sets of riot gear before the RNC event because they are worried conservatives are going to get rowdy at their own event? Or could it POSSIBLY be because they are 100% sure that liberals will come to "protest" and end up rioting and destroying property and getting thrown in jail.

You only need to watch the documentary on trumps golf course in Scotland to see what a bully this man is. Willing to use his own private security to shut down opposition. He bullies senior citizens in Scotland who won't move to make way for his golf course. So yes he is a bully, yet that seems appealing to a large section of Americans



Not only Scotland.

I live near Palos Verdes.
