It appears Anti Trump Protesters are now becoming violent. Doesn't the media try to make it seem like the reverse is true?

Source: CBS Philly


According to the criminal complaint, several officers were working a “skirmish line” between Trump supporters and “anarchist members in masks” and protesters. At one point, the anarchists/protesters began using pepper spray on the officers while trying to get to the Trump supporters.

At least two officers were pepper-sprayed. One of those officers was also allegedly kicked in the back of the knees by Kennon Hooper. The officer fell to the ground and was kicked once more by Hooper.

Hooper resisted arrest, but was forcibly handcuffed.

A female protester jumped on the back of an officer while they were trying to arrest Hooper. That woman has been identified as Lisa Cuyler and she was detained without incident.

While that was happening, a man wearing a black mask and black hat grabbed the protective vest of a police sergeant and attempted to fight him. A female officer attempted to take the man into custody, but he resisted. Both fell to the ground and the officer suffered a cut to her hand and an injury to her shoulder. The suspect was eventually taken into custody and has been identified as Maxwell Yearick.


Edit: Note, the kid who attacked the police was an anti trump protester who was wearing a Trump hat. He was NOT a Trump supporter nor was his girlfriend who attacked police.

Tough crowd... things have been bubbling under the surface and this being an Election year a lot of that is starting to spill over.

I'm afraid it will get worse

Anyone who is stupid enough to start kicking a cop does not represent anybody except for themselves. Just like the old white guy who punched the black guy at the Trump rally does not represent Trump supporters.

Remember that the name of the game is divide and conquer, how convenient it is that the "anarchist members in masks" began using pepper spray on cops!? in order to get to Trump supporters, I mean really?

I know many Sanders supporters and none of them would attack police, honestly there are very few people who have that kind of death wish.

Rest assured, they'll find a way to blame this on Trump, they always do. If his people are violent, even if defending themselves, it his fault. If anti-Trump people show up to cause trouble, it's Trump's fault. It's a never ending circle of retardation from the anti-Trump crowd.

What signified these people as anarchists? Did they say so expressly, or is it some twisted assumption and attempt to use the word as a pejorative?

You know what they say about he who fights monsters.


There's a lot of stupidity on both sides, to be honest.

Don't you see? It is Trump's fault, if he would be 'tolerant' to others then liberals wouldn't have to riot and be so angry. The only thing Trump has to do is agree with their version of 'tolerance' then everything will be okay!

Here's a vid from that 'protest'

Trump is 1000% not guilty of any of this, even though he says things like "I'd like to punch that guy in the face, I really would" and dozens of other remarks that glorify this type of behavior.

The people who kicked cops and peppersprayed cops are complete ***holes who definitely deserve whatever punishment they get. However, if Trump wants to be President he'd be smart to be more of a role model and NOT glorify punching people and being a pompous d**k, but him and his supporters will tell everyone else to "stop being a baby" instead of addressing the real issues.

I will say, it's proving to be a successful political approach by Trump, but it's only a testament to how easily the masses fall into the "divide and conquer" and scapegoating tactics of TPTB

I couldn't agree more. Funny how there's a few in every group.

Enjoy your jail time, court fees, and fines knuckleheads.

And BTW....... Let's ensure the police get the recognition they deserve as well, seeing how the OP conveniently left that out.
After all, this thread was intended to smear Sanders supporters right?



Additionally, a video has surfaced of a police officer allegedly shoving Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter Megan Guza to the ground outside of the rally.

CBS PITT

A few @$$holes in every group....

i think now that's what they mean by it: "Trump supports violence" = "I hate trump so much that i can't control myself and become violent and its his fault"

Trump's attitude would have had him laughed off the campaign trail in 2008 and probably 2012.

We're at a time where someone can be talked to "ugly" and press charges over it. We're at a time when a black waitress can write a slur on the merchant copy receipt her customer left her and society goes insane and blows race up, same with the lesbian girl who wrote "queer" on the merchant copy her customer left, and society went crazy. Today, a group of people can band together and make demands and you're gonna follow them or else you're gonna step down like MIZZOU's president and Chancellor, all because one guy claimed he was called a racial slur from someone in the back of a pickup truck and there wasn't one single shred of evidence. But two men are out of a career for it.

People who support Trump are sick and tired of the puny wimps cowering to the demands of racist groups and standing with someone who has a strong voice that doesn't cower, even when a group of Conservative women band together to petition him to fire his campaign manager who was found not guilty after all, is our way of saying that we support a strong voice. We need someone with balls to turn this wimpy, bottom feeding country back around so we can once again be THE top power and united. Trump isn't dividing our people, he's trying to reunite us.

That's exactly right. For the last 8 years these knuckleheads have been able to blame everybody but themselves and get away with it. For 8 years now, everything bad or negative has been the fault of Bush, Republicans, white privilege, or now Trump.

I'd like to hear one single thing in the past 8 years that blacks or democrats have held themselves responsible for.

"Trump is trying to unite us" lol I needed a laugh, thanks for that.

Today I can press charges if someone calls me "ugly" and I don't like it? Don't think that's how it works.

But anyway, I respect your opinion and to each their own.

Anarchist:

"a person who believes in or tries to bring about anarchy"

"synonyms:nihilist, insurgent, AGITATOR, subversive, terrorist, revolutionary"

Did you bother to look up the definition first before posting that? It is clear as day that they are indeed anarchists.

I had a ringside seat for this last night, sitting in traffic, when I was trying to get to the Penguins game. I've got some bad news for some of you. A large number of these people were "Bernie" supporters. Nice job by the local media in covering this up and trying to blame it on Trump.

I can concur with this 100%, in traffic I witnessed SEVERAL "Feel the Bern" shirts attacking (verbally and physically, light shoving really) a small group of Trump supporters who just walked away from them.

Gotta love it when people post definitions like that. It always comes off as very tedious.

I know what an anarchist is, having read Proudhon, Godwin and Bakunin among others.

My conspiracy mind is suspicious about how "anarchist" has come to be an insult or a byword for violent lunatics. The actual philosophy of anarchism relies on the notion that "free" anarchy can only work if people are nonviolent and nonagressive. You should read up on it some time, from the horses mouth so to speak. Interesting stuff.

Weird this doesnt happen at Cruz or Sanders rallies.

Anyone else notice the pattern that the violence is always at Trump rallies?

And for Trumps entire campaign hes blamed everyone else for every mistake he and his campaign has made.
