Actually if you behave like that inside the rally you will be removed. Outside on the public sidewalk you can be all the jackass you want, but both times the only loud and rude ones came from left of the isle.


The videos I posted show Trump fans being violent. One shows a woman in a Hijab being escorted out and she looks like she couldn't attack my shoe.

I understand the meaning of the somg "The Wall". It does not mean that or other songs can adapt to other things in the future.

I know how its been mis adapted over the decades.


This is not a misadaptation. There is more going on in these particular songs than a problem with a record company.

You must never have seen The movie The Wall or misinterpreted it, whatever.

The "wall's" theme is quite clear throughout.

How quickly we forget.





Not to mention that building Trump's wall/fence will rip private property from 1000s of American land owners.

The Great Wall Of Trump Would Be the Ultimate Eminent Domain Horror Show

Or, how Trump's wall/fence would adversely affect the environment and any animal/insect that walks, crawls or slithers, except cockroaches, of course, because nothing can keep them out!

The Environmental Impacts of a Border Fence



I should have quoted the entire thing. I will this time. This is the best post.

Eminent Domain Horror show


In 2013, the federal government succeeded in using eminent domain to acquire the land rights to build a border fence across Dr. Eloisa G. Tamez’s ancestral home in 2013. Dr. Tamez’s land has been in her family since the King of Spain granted it to them in 1767. But it rests on the U.S.-Mexican border, so the Department of Homeland Security took it to erect a border wall under a federal law enacted during the Bush administration.The Great Wall of Trump would mean hundreds, if not thousands, of Tamezes.

I have seen it about 50 times. Still does not mean it doesn't remind people of current events.

No, thats what you want it to mean. I mean like anything that paints Trump as a psychotic, right? As opposed to the proven psychopathic tendencies of your favorite narcissist Hillary, right?

From that link analyzing the theme of "The Wall" by Pink Floyd...


From the outset, Pink’s life revolves around an abyss of loss and isolation. Born during the final throes of a war that claimed the lives of nearly 300,000 British soldiers – Pink’s father among them – to an overprotective mother who lavishes equal measures of love and phobia onto her son, Pink begins to build a mental wall between himself and the rest of the world so that he can live in a constant, alienated equilibrium free from life’s emotional troubles. Every incident that causes Pink pain is yet another brick in his ever-growing wall: a fatherless childhood, a domineering mother, an out-of-touch education system bent on producing compliant cogs in the societal wheel, a government that treats its citizens like chess pieces, the superficiality of stardom, an estranged marriage, even the very drugs he turns to in order to find release. As his wall nears completion – each brick further closing him off from the rest of the world – Pink spirals into a veritable Wonderland of insanity.

The rally is a private event by ticket or invite only, protesting is not permitted inside the event. Thats why she was removed, that stupid star stunt she pulled.

More apt.







Arnold Layne had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine
On the wall hung a tall mirror Distorted view,
see through baby blue Oh,
Arnold Layne It's not the same,
takes two to know Two to know, two to know Why can't you see?
Arnold Layne,
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne
Now he's caught, a nasty sort of person
They gave him time
Doors bang, chain gang, he hates it
Oh, Arnold Layne It's not the same, takes two to know Two to know,two to know
Why can't you see?
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne
Don't do it again

No, I do not find and use 'anything that paints Trump as a psychotic'. If I did, my OP would be substantially larger.

The website you give is not an official Pink Floyd site and leads to a FB page.

I am not the only person to imagine a dystopian future if Trump is elected.

I can see it and think it a fair comparison , Trump is certainly a clear and present danger to all of us ,he does have that space cadet glow.

I prefer this version , less Trump , more awesome.



But it won't happen will it ? , you guys won't actually elect this madman into office .... will you ?
God help us all.

I'll tell you what I see with these two candidates.

Hillary has never accomplished anything and would not be in this position if her name was not Clinton. She is making promises to people that will want compensation in the future. I also think she will fold under pressure.

Trump flip flops on many things he says and speaks before he thinks. But I believe he knows his limitations and will surround himself with the right people.

I'm tired of business as usual.

The Wall , both the movie and album are the official word, sweets. The review of the film I linked is spot on.

That is less trump and more awesome. Logically, I wouldn't think people would let this happen. But seeing how people react here to this 'vague savior', is extremely concerning to say the least.

Clinton was a fine SOS. The things that happened during her tenure happened to I believe, all, SOSs, except the email thing- which the Dept of State has said is now a non issue.

Everyone is tired of business as usual. You 'believe' he knows his limitations? I am glad you do, because he seems to think he has none.

You just don't see this sort of language or problems at Clinton ralleys. I find it quite scary.



Well that is because the ones that are causing trouble at Trump really is the pro Clintons..
Pro Trump are better then that.




Odd, before it was Sanders agitators causing problems? Is that a ME? LOL

Looking at the dates and videos, it is not Clinton or Sanders people perpetrating the violence.

It is obviously a Trump supporter that yells "Go back to Africa".

It is Trump saying 'people would have been taken out on stretchers" and all that kind of thing.


DNC leaks say otherwise.
