I'm not going to justify violence, but I can imagine that a black guy being shown a photo of the person he supports with a swastika scrawled over the face would be upset.

That's basically saying the black guy is supporting a racist. I get how that could set someone off, even if I don't agree with his actions.

Not OK what happened, but I don't think the story changing from someone wearing a KKK hood (and his little companion WAS) to someone flashing a sign like that somehow makes the guy's actions worse.

The whole thing is embarrassing. People going into these rallies and disrupting should be ashamed of themselves, and so should the morons that assault them. I think it more reprehensible to assault someone than interrupt a rally.

You start punching someone that isn't being violent and I'm going to start punching you, IDGAF what side you're on, I know I'll get a bunch of internet tough guy comments, but I would have gone after the guy assaulting the protester. Not OK. He wasn't threatening. I still will drive over someones face if I see them slapping a horse.

My take.

Security was already escorting them out of the building. They were not resisting. They were leaving. The situation was under control.

Why would a swastika enrage a black Trump supporter. Is he black and Jewish?

That's it then. This election cycle is going to devolve into a barbaric cage fight and Obama gets to declare Martial Law and stay "Mr. President" a little while longer.

WooHoo maybe he'll be able to get something done finally.

My heart goes out to the 75% of Americans that don't deserve to suffer through this carnival side show. However I'm close and can always make room for some political refugees.

(Just give me a heads up first and I'll get the boat ready)


Well, I will come watch the country devolve into civil war and martial law from the great White North then!

I don't see things getting any better. And good point on Martial Law. That would give him all the justification needed. The government planned to instill martial law during the LA riots if they broke out in other major cities. That could easily happen with the divide this country has now.

The man with Lewandowski is security - the guy in the pink striped jacket who actually does the restraining.

Several reports have identified him as a plain clothes security hired by Trump to identify and deal with tresspasing agitators.

Both men were doing their job, lawfully.

I thought the black dude was a Trump supporter and the two people in the KKK hoods were Trump protestors. All three were protesters?



I think that might be what happened...Wow...Ironic......maybe they were both there to protest the same thing?




They're just all hyped up on their anger, aren't they....like they are overdosing on some kind of hate drug!!!


I know huh ?! I am honestly at a complete loss at why soo many people are being sucked into this "hate cycle"....The momentum is with the people right now, what a shame to waste such an opportunity to fill the news with important debates.....instead it will be filled with this insanity.....very sad....




Media has fuelled the anger and caused the division between political, class, and racial lines, revealing their motives with every mistruth they've put forward. For the voters, It has reached near pathological proportions, and at the very least serves as a good study in the susceptibility of propaganda and conformity.

There is no single reason to protest Trump.

It was actually a confederate flag superimposed on Trump's image.

You know, that symbol that people were rioting over, attacking people over, burning and forcibly removing a few months ago.

I will give you my view after being in Tuscon last month.
I live in Boston, and you all know we do not take # like this silently.

But the air in Tuscon , when I was there, was something I could sense. It was was much more absorbing in the tolerance level people have there regarding just about everything. Many there, will say they are there because of the freedom of beliefs and the lower involvement of government restrictions on them.

These are the progeny of cowboy days, and they are there because they were a part of some of the most extreme lawlessness that anyone in the East had ever even witnessed. They should be regarded as real guardians of freedom from government control, and incident withstanding, they (collectively) showed how to take a bad situation (Eastern standards) and still maintain some form of legitimate control, given a situation they did not collectively like as well . I like those people.

I'm kind of a rule follower, who likes organization, and order. Even though I'm an independent thinker.

If I went to hear someone speak (especially if I paid for it) - - that's what I want to hear. I don't want it interrupted by someone's personal issue. It's obnoxious, disruptive, and rude. I felt the same way about the BLM girl who interrupted Hillary.

I support legal protests outside the venue. They get plenty of coverage and their voices are heard.

As far as Trump, Hell NO! I don't want him as president. It's a World Leader position that requires a lot of finesse. Something he seems to totally lack.

Bully's don't tend do "finesse".

However, I think he should be offered a job in politics. I want to see what he would do in a political position. I don't think he could hack it. I think he's too used to being the Big Shot to take a lower position.

This stinks of psyop.

Anyone else feel this is a race-riot psyop?

Wait do you or do you not support Trumps right to have a peaceful rally?

As far as Trump no?

If you do and I read that wrong, then my bad.

If not why?

This is like pulling teeth. Just asked for a clarification.

It reads less clearly than you think.

You just negated the last thing you said in the prior paragraph.

example:
if I say "I support animal rights....as far as cats, hell no"

Do you not see that.

Ok to clear some things up.
I personally know the gentleman(Mr.Sanders) whom was assualted in this video, and have known him for several years.

1.) Mr. Sanders is not a racist by any definition of the word. He was in fact protesting that trump was a racist.
2.) Mr. Sanders never wore a "KKK hood" or anything that resembled such at any time at this rally. He had a picture of trump with a confed flag superimposed.
3.) Mr. Sanders and the lady that was wearing the hood do not even know each other and are not a couple. They did not attend together although security removed them together at the same time.
4.) Nothing Mr. Sanders did at this event justifies getting sucker punched. I mean if you wana take the guy outside thats one thing, but to cold cock someone makes you even #tier that them.

Am I posting this because I am his friend? No. Im not really his friend, I just know the dude for a long time. The reason I am posting this is because as I read this thread, I suddenly relize just how screwed up most of you all are. Some of you speak as if you have the facts, you don't. You only have selective bits of propogandized info that your basing your opinions on. I would have alot more respect for you and value your information a bit moreif you didn't just jump on the band wagon like the rest of the sheeple.

America IS great, we are the first country to turn our presidential elections into a reality tv series. it's like a bad case of motion sickness, f%$# this ride, I want off!!

So how is this clarification negating everything we said?

She was wearing a racist symbol becoming in essence a racist caricature. He was parading around a racist symbol in an effort to dehumanize a valid candidate and his supporters.

As if in a mess of a venue like that, after agitators try to break down dialogue, how is anyone supposed to know to separate them? They probably came on the same bus or bus convoy. Who cares though, they were doing the same thing. Was that a coincidence or were they directed to do that by someone? THAT would be nice if someone clarified. How about it?

Did he deserve to get punched...NO. NO ONE SAID THAT. In fact I dont think anyone said that. We all declared unanimously that it was wrong.

Can you ask your friend who is not as "messed up as us" what the hell he was doing taking this to the gutter?

he cant make a valid argument without trying to incite violent outbursts at a peaceful rally?

+

Were these people directed by anyone to be there if so WHO?

Clarify that before you call US messed up.
