Donald Trump supporters weigh in on violence at their rallies


Most supporters who talked to MSNBC blamed the unrest in Chicago on supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders – “Bernie’s crowd,” as Trump sneered in his speech – and the Black Lives Matter movement, which frequently protests Trump events. But distrust of GOP leaders is so high that some Trump supporters volunteered that the protesters popping up at Trump’s rallies were Republican plants.

2. It was BLM and associated activists for the most part.

 

They have been incredibly and impressively active in Chicago the past year or two. If there were GOP plants, they were not organizers but followers.

There is no shame in what was achieved.

5. Abject and total surrender to what?

Patience?

Or are you not concerned with the two people - with a legitimate grievance against society - who are intent on disrupting the event?

What you seem to suggest is an embrace of the use of some sort of confrontation and force/threat of force. To what end; do you think he needs to prove his manhood?

Show what a strong and forceful person does?

Perhaps we could discuss the meaning of strength within a humanitarian world view vs displays of assholisheness over trivialities by authoritarian control freaks.

6. Not concerned at all

 

If they wanted to air their "legitimate grievance against society" then they need to have their own rally. They have no right to disrupt and prevent someone's free speech rights.
