For every one of those you posted you can find an equivalent where someone has been beat up or maimed for the crime of wearing a Trump shirt or having a Trump sticker on their car. The fear of announcing you are a Trump supporter is far higher than the fear of announcing you are a Hillary supporter. Having said that, ALL acts of violence like this ought to be condemned.
Liberal college students and faculty members are far more likely to disinvite a campus speaker than conservatives, but conservatives succeed slightly more often, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education database, which defends students’ and professors’ First Amendment rights, documented 286 efforts to disinvite scheduled campus speakers between 2000 and 2014.

For the same reason the left continues to insist they merely peaceful protests.
Are they merely peaceful protests where people are expressing free speech or have they devolved in places to something more sinister?
Do you continue to deny that in many places where they occur, they are intended to prevent a person with conservative views from speaking at all, denying them their right to free speech?
Of course, there were seven highly publicized hate crimes linked to Trump that took place right after the election that were also proved to be hoaxes too, so it's hard to know exactly what is real and what is fake.
