32. If anyone sees such a thing at a rally
Then try to protect them, and tell them you respect their right to be there if they are respectful back.
We can be consistent and maintain our higher moral ground, and STILL beat them at the a fair elect.....well, you know...
Even if it is a trick--not unlikely--don't fall for it by letting down guard.

We are NOT so insecure. We stand for TRUTH not ideological dogma, and must maintain the integrity of our position.

MAYBE some acted poorly. This happens in any group of humans. But it is not in the liberal/progressive tradition to pick on powerless, but to give grief to the POWERMONGERS. It is clearly the other side that does that, historically.
