Shame on the leftist hoodlums in Chicago for assaulting free political speech by violently stopping a Trump rally. This is tyranny on display. We, the People, will not tolerate it. The fact that it happened is wrong. The fact that powerful left wing groups like Moveon.org issued congratulations to the protesters is worse.
Sanders needs to condemn this or look like a socialist strong man like Chavez because it was his signs being waved. I would be shocked if he had anything to do with it. The point is that this is common with socialism. In Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa, we see that the resentment socialism breeds naturally leads to strong arm tactics or worse. If Sanders wants to lead a Danish style socialist movement, it will not happen by accident. He has to nip the radicalism in the bud. This is the moment that will tell us if Senator Sanders is the man who we believe him to be. He is admired even by his critics. We will find out if that is justified or if he is an enabler of tyranny not just economically but politically.
I love Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Kasich is okay, but they need to realize this is not about Trump. It is about left wing oppression that is targeting Trump today, but will challenge all of us tomorrow. The Christian, the businessperson, the gun owner, the home schooler, the liberty minded person, the global climate change skeptic and anyone else not on the favored list is in danger.
Today #IstandwithTrump Tomorrow, we fight as usual.
The response of the left is to put Trump supporters on notice. How is this not incitement?
Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, responded to news of the postponement of Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago on Friday:
“Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events. These protests are a direct result of the violence that has occurred at Trump rallies and that has been encouraged by Trump himself from the stage. Our country is better than the shameful, dangerous, and bigoted rhetoric that has been the hallmark of the Trump campaign. To all of those who took to the streets of Chicago, we say thank you for standing up and saying enough is enough. To Donald Trump, and the GOP, we say, welcome to the general election. Trump and those who peddle hate and incite violence have no place in our politics and most certainly do not belong in the White House.”
