The violence captured in these videos is wrong, no questions, no explanations, nothing. Wrong.

I'd like to see corresponding disgust from from Trump supporters when the same things happen the other way around.

Sadly, we don't see that. We see explanations, we see questions about authenticity, we see "well, they do it too."

This kind of crap has zero place in American politics. Period.

You get out of here with your reasonable and well-thought out opinion.

This is so out of control. What happened to peaceful protest? Those aren't protesters, that's a mob.

Come to think of it, I can't completely blame them though. They know their days of a free ride are numbered.

This is getting old and fast. Violent protests completely diminishes the message and whoever you're protesting can now call you the thug. So dumb and pointless.

But this is the result of Trump and his hateful rhetoric. He's flared emotions so high that the Latino community in Cali has erupted in opposition against him, along with anyone else who doesn't swing right.

The violence needs to end and I betcha the Free Hugs guy wasn't far trying to quell this storm.

Of course it's gonna get ugly! Hasn't every rally of his in Cali gotten ugly? If you go take care and don't engage in the violence.

I would think that Clinton or Sanders, or anyone who supports them in a prominent place to get a message out, would publicly denounce these (fighting hard not to cuss here) protesters. Or even speak directly to them in a call to end the bad behavior. I would hate it if I was running for office and my supporters were causing this much trouble.

Does anyone know if any of the left candidates have said anything about all the violence in the protests towards Trump?

This stuff makes me sick. I cannot even put into words what I'm feeling actually.

Everyone from the left (especially the leadership) and the right should denounce these acts immediately. Not doing so is just condoning the actions of the few. Since those protesters were protesting Trump, the President, Hillary and Sanders should use it as an opportunity to show that they do not support such actions. Otherwise this will only escalate, and someone will end up dead ... soon, and when that happens it could ignite something much much bigger.

I am waiting for mass cases of lead poisoning to start at a Trump rally. I don't condone it but it will happen sadly.

And it would be justified. I don't know about you but I'd be terrified for my life if surrounded by that mob.

Strange that, the silence, isn't it? Maybe Clinton/Sanders don't want to "own" or take credit for these people as their supporters. Or maybe they aren't sure who they support. That's the problem with this election, its as much about who people are against as it is who they are for.

I'm going to say this right now if you want a serious escalation than go ahead and attack our women, that is the quickest way.

Exactly.

Funny, if they are in mobs or against a women and her child, they are all tough.

Have the father step in to protect his wife and child and they cry "Help, Help me!!"
Warning: Strong language!
Basically, a group walking down the street shouting F Donald Trump, woman reacts with go F yourself. Man confronts woman saying "don't swear in front of your kid". While he is supporting the others shouting F Trump.
Father shows up and protects wife then anti-Trumper cries for help.


Priceless!

Those videos are pretty unnerving. I admire the Trump supporters for their ability to "turn the other cheek" so to speak.

I am afraid that it will eventually lead to a "moment" where these worthless thugs will push the wrong person.
Then the left will get what it wants. It wants to be victimized so badly that it has resorted to the worst forms of provocation.

Call it what it is. This is provocation, not protest.

Trump's hands are clean in this. His rhetoric did not cause all of this. These are stupid, stupid people that are just looking for a fight.

Justifiable maybe but that's a point of view IMHO.
This is hypothetical, if a Trump supporter shoots a protester/assailant then it maybe a call to arms for other protesters/assailants to bring their own fire power or vice versa.

On the other foot a Trump supporter could just take all they can and just fire in to the crowd. Then painting the Trump followers as vengeful murdering white people.

IMHO this is the scenario they are looking for nothing better used than a useful idiot. It's hypothetical but still applies to the current state of the union.

It's because they know that every media outlet (less FoxNews) will twist the story and make it Trumps fault in one way or another.
"Trumps hateful, bigoted, rhetoric is responsible for more violence at his rally"
Something like that...

So what is the solution? Segregation? I agree escalation is inevitable, so how do we stop it?

Can you imagine if this was happening to black or Latino democrats at a Hillary or Bernie speech. All types of bait words would be thrown around by the MSM "hate crime" "Bigot" "right wing terrorists." But this is all ok when it happens to primarily white conservatives.

Great answer and spot on correct! Thanks, I'd forgotten that angle. (only on 1st cup of coffee this am).

Of course, in a sense that means the Dems are silently endorsing the riots and beatings of Trump supporters.
No surprise there.
