Who's Zoomin' Who? Violence Vs. Free Speech At Trump Events

Apparently, a lot of you are getting "zoomed" and you still don't know it:

"Black Tucson Cop: Anti-Trump Protestors 'The Most Hateful People I've Ever Seen'"

And what if pro-life people protested at abortion clinics the way Anti-Trump protesters do at Trump events? "Oh, the horror!" But it's ok for fascists to call Trump a fascist. Boy, that is rich, as well as highly ignorant of history.

And more of the pot calling the kettle black: maybe Bernie Sanders ought to practice a bit more of what he preaches:

Democrats’ socialist hopeful for president, Bernie Sanders, says GOP front-runner Donald Trump needs to keep his people in line. What gall. His own campaign workers sparked a near-riot and a Secret Service dust-up at two Trump rallies.
Hundreds of young Sanderistas, mostly minorities, poured in from across Chicago, taking over whole sections of an arena where Republican voters were peacefully waiting to hear Trump speak. They threw punches at Trump supporters and sparked several melees before effectively shutting down the event ahead of Tuesday’s Illinois primary. Meanwhile, hundreds more Sanderistas clashed with police outside.
Anybody could see from all the Sanders tee-shirts and signs, and hear from the repeated chants of “Ber-nie,” that the near-riot was largely organized by supporters of Sanders. [my emphasis]

“Remember the #TrumpRally wasn’t just luck. It took organizers from dozens of organizations and thousands of people to pull off. Great work,” tweeted People for Bernie, a large pro-Sanders organization.
Dozens of Sanders campaign workers have been identified through social media participating in the protest.
One organizer was Jedidiah Brown, who threw a punch at a Trump supporter and then rushed the stage to rip up a Trump sign before being removed by security.

The black Trump supporter you saw punching and kicking one of two anti-Trump protesters? The other anti-Trump protester was wearing a KKK white hood, and who knows what the first anti-Trumper might have said to the black Trump supporter? The black anti-Trumpster who got sucker-punched by the 75 year old white man? We don't have the audio there either to hear what the black fellow was spewing as he was being escorted out of there. You'd have had to be there, like the black cop from Tucson, above, to make any kind of judgment on these incidents at all. Although this source says, "The protester made an obscene gesture toward the crowd before being struck." Same thing with "the Time magazine photographer who was choke-slammed to the ground by a Secret Service agent"...because the reporter told the agent, "F*ck you."

So let's see...when Bernie Sanders' supporters shut down Trump's and his supporters' freedom of expression, and they do so by instigating violence and verbal assault, and they celebrate that as their right and a great achievement, it's perfectly acceptable...but when Trump supporters shut down Bernie Sanders supporters' freedom of expression, their obscene gestures and language and their KKK white hoods, by clocking them, that's not OK...?

Again with the double-standards.

Neither should be allowed to act or speak violently. But the left thinks it's their right, and theirs alone. Curious, isn't it?

I know there have been other white Trump supporters assaulting or verbally attacking black protesters at Trump events. As of March 10th anyway, it appears there were three such incidents, not counting the one already discussed above. Four incidents are four too many, but it isn't a lot and it isn't predominant, especially given the massive numbers of people at his events virtually everywhere. Not all his supporters are innocent angels, that is clear and unwanted. But what was said by these protesters to the Trump supporters? You know they're not there for silent protest. They're there to disrupt, to shout down, to agitate. It is part of the Rulebook (more on that below).

Maybe what the anti-Trumpsters say and do is so offensive, so profane, that the anger finally boils over in the elderly man and the black Trump supporter. Did you ever stop to think that's why the security guards didn't stop and arrest the elderly man at first? He was arrested and charged later though. And they most certainly arrested the black Trump supporter immediately. Maybe what the anti-Trumpsters shout is even worse than the kinds of insults and disrespect thrown at this black Trump supporter, and that black cop from Tucson above.

If you are black, seeing a KKK white hood on anyone would and should anger you, whether you are a Democrat or a conservative/Republican. And if you were a BlackLivesMatter person and saw anyone with a KKK white hood on, I daresay you would be justified and heralded in the media and Democrat circles as a hero standing up for your rights, to "have a safe zone", to not to feel threatened, if you started attacking persons wearing that hood and/or saying racial epithets and insults. So why don't you give the same credit to those who are also saying and/or acting out, "Enough's enough" when they are attacked, threatened by the KKK hood or verbally abused?

Again with the double-standards.

Colonel Allen West, African-American and conservative, wrote about the Chicago melee:

The birthplace of “Rules for Radicals” is Chicago and they showed out last night. First thing, there’s no doubt there was coordination between the line of questioning from CNN’s Jake Tapper at Thursday evening’s GOP presidential debate and the call to arms across progressive socialist online sites for disruption and violence at the Trump rally planned in the Windy City. This is today’s liberal progressive left, and this is how they operate: complete collusion between the media and their actions.

However, the left has just crossed the line and its antics will come back to seriously bite them. Instead of allowing open political discourse and opposition, they have chosen the tactics of Alinsky. This is a different time and everyday Americans are no longer tolerant of the intolerant. They will no longer be intimidated into silence.
And as my black driver last night stated as we drove to the hotel, get ready for President Trump because he’s a rich guy that speaks to common folks. And I must agree, what the chuckleheads in Chicago did last night was to elevate Donald J. Trump into martyr status. They have made Trump a symbol and the common folk will rally to him. Americans will no longer be intimidated into silence. And these high-brow folks who keep referring to Trump supporters as uninformed and illiterate neanderthals are totally wrong. My wife Angela has a dual major, an MBA and a PhD. She was a college business professor and she supports Donald J. Trump. And she has some pretty intelligent and accomplished friends who support Trump as well. I’m getting tired of folks referring to my wife in such a denigrating manner.

What’s happened in America where people are not free to speak, assemble and select their own political candidate without ridicule and disparagement? I can tell you this, the silent majority is not going back into the bottle.

To Colonel West's point, even I was surprised about Five-Thirty-Eight's quoting of CNN and Reuters polls recently, regarding who really are Trump's supporters:
Candidate support by income
                         TRUMP CRUZ KASICH RUBIO
Under $50k
           49%     15%        3%        17%
$50k+                    50        15           8            16
Among registered Republicans, surveyed Feb. 24-27; survey tested Carson, not shown; Source: CNN

Candidate support by education
                                           TRUMP    CRUZ    KASICH
High school/ some college
     53%         30%      10%
College                                    34            31         18
Among likely Republican primary voters, for the week ending March 13; survey tested Rubio, not shown; Source: Reuters
So does a "Rulebook for Radicals" really exist? You betcha, and here are just a few that are chapter, line and verse of what the agitators are doing:
  • …the fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. [Racial epithets shouted at black man selling Trump t-shirts, you can do your own Google search]
  • …the sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy. [cussing, yelling, getting up in people's grills, screaming ridicule, clashing with authority figures, chanting, “Revolution has come. Time to pick up the gun”, seem to be what they thrive on...]
  • …the eighth rule: Keep the pressure on. [go to every event, blocking all the opponents' free speech, everywhere, even blocking an ambulance from getting to the hospital... "Poke! Poke! Poke!" case in point given by Bill Whittle's video below]
  • The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. [see rule 8, and also this includes the owning of the mainstream media by the left and their constant stream of bias and misinformation]
  • …The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. [picked: Trump and his supporters; freeze his supporters from even getting to events; attack each person personally; and polarize them by stoking their anger]
You see? There is no room for civility. No room for truly free speech or joint discourse. No room for free thinking. No room for "tolerance" or "coexistence." Only hate. Only personal attacks and getting others to hate you because you're attacking them. Only thought/speech police. Only constant pressuring and belittling and screaming and profanity. Only physical violence and even destruction against people and things and places.

It's a bit like a spoiled child throwing the world's worst temper tantrum to get his/her way, only worse, because of the massive amounts of hate, venom and violence directed at everyone daring to say no to you. And many are actually professional agitators and who knows how many young men like this one they are leading astray with their thug-like behavior?

After all, it's what our President told his supporters all to do!

Bill Whittle, with the help of David Horowitz, explains both phenomena--why anti-Trumpsters are being agitators, and why Trump supporters of all colors, incomes, education levels and ages, are pushing back--so pay attention, Sanderistas and Clintonites, ya might learn something the mainstream media isn't spoon-feeding you. If instead you're a Trump supporter, you can realize the agitators are doing these awful things precisely on purpose to get your goat, to anger you enough to throw a punch because the media will then only blame you, just as they've been doing (see Rule 10). It's all part of the Rules for Radicals they're following:

The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance.

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
