First Trump blames President Obama "as a Muslim Kneyan," and now Trump blames Senator Sanders is a Communist but it's Trump who have the faith and following of Holocaust Denier David Duke, Grand Wizard of the KKK.

Donald Trump on Saturday blamed supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders for protests that shut down his Chicago rally, calling the U.S. senator from Vermont “our communist friend”. - article

Much of the mainstream media have had to face the inconvenient news today that, yep, Donald Trump’s racist birther beliefs are alive and well. Inconvenient because, although the MSM has given Trump’s presidential campaign extraordinary amounts of coverage, they’ve largely forgotten—willfully or not—that in his view Barack Obama is some kind of Kenyan-born Muslim.

“We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know, he’s not even an American. Birth certificate, man.” “Right,” Trump mumbled

“But anyway,” the man added, “we have training camps… where they want to kill us.” - “Uh huh,” Trump said. - “That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?” the man said.

Trump never corrected the guy by stating that president is an American and a Christian.

Clear and present danger? Trump and his friends in the Skin Headed KKK.

What a dope.

No wonder Trump loves "the poorly educated."

Only dopes will fall for this clap-trap.

When we all know, when push came to shove, Trump hasn't got the eggs to push back.

Cincinnati, Ohio has just been closed to Trump's hatred. Maybe the rest of America will join in their condemnation of his racists and religious prejudice to Make America Hate Again!

Remember how Bernie handled the BLM protest that disrupted his speech? Notice there have been no further news worthy disruptions of Sanders? Remember how Trump taunted Bernie Sanders and bragged about how he'd strong arm protesters? Notice how his rallies are increasingly a spectacle of violence? We saw Bernie act in a responsible way - we've witnessed Trump acting irresponsibly. Simple really.

@Black Sabbath

Out of so many inane Trumpisms to choose from, that has got to be one of the most unintentionally hilarious lines he has delivered.

Still, I am sure he does love the poorly educated and ignorant. They are a huge demographic that overwhelmingly support Trump over other candidates. Still, a small percentage of otherwise well educated people also support him, albeit even they are somewhat quiet about their support of him for obvious reasons.

I know a few well-paid career professional university grad types who support him, one of whom is also an evangelical. I will never understand why these people are happy to join hands with Trump's "poorly educated" and bigoted supporters.

"his (Trump's) rallies are increasingly a spectacle of violence" - comments

Trump fans seem to be arguing that a little racism or religious hatred is called "free speech" "because Trump is just saying what everyone thinks anyway."

Trump's incessant demand to beat people up and his wish to "punch that guy in the face" have combined with the visceral hatred of the Neo-Nazi and the result is a marketing disaster. Cincinnati is CLOSED Herr Trump! (Not sure, think that's how they address him, not sure, heard someone say that . . .")

There is nothing more precious than a phone call from the Chief of Police to Trump's Eagle Nest, "Mr. Trump, we can't accommodate the angry mobs that dominated your rallies at the previous eight cities, yeah, I know, but this is now a matter of Public Safety."

Too bad the RNC didn't see this coming for the past ten monthes. They thought Trump would be greeted as a liberator.

With Trump riding high in popularity, why is it that a candidate receiving the support of the American people should be shut down? At a Trump rally why should violent protests be accepted? Why shouldn't unbridled immigration be questioned? Like it or not, and Trump is a presidential candidate-violence has no place at his meetings! And If anyone should be taken to task for acting irresponsibly it is the protestors lashing out and causing trouble at his rallies!

-10 ( +8 / -18 )

why is it that a candidate receiving the support of the American people should be shut down - comments

Because the candidate for the nomination of the Republican Party, (not the American People) has pursued an endless series of racist, misogynist, religious prejudice and demand violence from his rabid followers while offering to pay them for their legal troubles arising from assault charges.

Kurisupisu, so people wearing T-shirts of another candidate deserve to be beaten up, or people of color too at Trump rallies? So hateful and intolerant, and you THINK this is all going to work out for you? You will, sooner or later, suffer if he is ever elected.

@kurisupisu

Not true. Inciting violence is a crime that Trump has committed on many occasions, as everyone well knows, but the authorities have yet to press charges against him.

Here is just one example of Trump clearly breaking the law by inciting violence: "If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them," Trump said. "Just knock the hell out of them. I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees."

Simple, the lot get a pass, because the standards applied to them are different.

How did he incite violence? Trump is Trump, Do I like how if says things, not all the time, but stop giving a pass for unruly people that won't restrain themselves and think that they can get in your face and tell you to shut up and then physically touch you. I have a fundamental problem with that. When I used to work in clubs as a bartender long ago, we would often get ignorant jerks that wouldn't behave, we asked them to leave, they wouldn't, they would shout and carry on, we would ask them to leave a second time and still FU, the third time was enough and they would be escorted out, some willingly, most forcefully and some needed to get slapped upside the head to get the message across, there were a few times when the cops came and some of the idiots that started the ruckus complained to them and tried to get some of us to pay damages or try to sue us and every time, it was thrown out, because we were within our rights to quell the situation. If you want to protest, great. but when you are at an event, it's not your right to hold it hostage for your personal selfish political agenda. Good on the security for taking these scum out, you don't quietly or willingly, then we will help you, either way, you go peacefully or by force.

Name calling is Trump'sSpeciality. Many candidattes imitated him to insult him and Trump insulted back and now only Rubio and Cruz left because both lie with ignorance. I don't think Sanders will be trapped by Trump. Trump will talk TPP etc but he will be crushed by Clinnton who know money related policy creation.

Bernie is very pro-Communist and has been for sometime.

In all fairness Bernie is probably right in that communism is much better than having paid thugs running in the street, protesting and beating people down. Probably not gonna help with the corruption we have in Gov right now. Will all this communist chaos bring about good change or just force a tyranny on the populace.

It's either Trump is taking advantage of vulnerable people and making them hate, or he's just helping release the hate that's already deeply ingrained in these people. Either way, it speaks a lot about the country.

Trump in Kansas City and told detailed experience of him one guy threw frying object from behind and praised Secret Service men who promptly rescued him. He is very good entertainer. Some disrupted were escorted out. Maybe that gave full dinner rallies organizers should collect entrance fees like Hillary came to Vegas last year. It was one hundred twelve dollars and dinner was served.

A lot of the right-wingers on this site seem to think that socialism is taking money from those who are working, and giving it to those who don't. What they don't realize is that's not socialism, it's capitalism.

A lot of the right-wingers on this site seem to think that socialism is taking money from those who are working, and giving it to those who don't. What they don't realize is that's not socialism, it's capitalism.

Socialism:

a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

Income Redistribution:

Economics. the theory, policy, or practice of lessening or reducing inequalities in income through such measures as progressive income taxation and antipoverty programs.

So in other words: Robbing Paul to give to Peter.

What in blazes are you talking about again???? ROFL

Capitalism:

an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, especially as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.

Free Market:

an economic system in which prices and wages are determined by unrestricted competition between businesses, without government regulation or fear of monopolies.

"This boiling point that we have now reached has been fed largely by the fact that we have a frontrunner in my party who has fed into language that basically justifies physically assaulting people who disagree with you," - Senator Marc Rubio

"one example of Trump clearly breaking the law by inciting violence: "If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them," Trump said. "Just knock the hell out of them. I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees." - comments

"Mr. Trump flat out told Fox News he was "really concerned" about Obama's citizenship, adding "I'm starting to wonder myself whether or not [Obama] was born in this country." - The Telegraph, 18 Apr 2011

Now in his fifth year of spreading a racist message in Trump's 'birther campaign', (beginning shortly before The Telegraph's article above) Trump supporters are certain this is all the media's fault.

Some others are certain Senator Sander's is at fault.

Some are blaming documented Trump quotes as comments here show.

The downside of inciting racial hatred in a five year campaign promoting prejudice, Donald J. Trump has shown the Republican Party incapable of simply banishing Trump from their debate events for his obvious prejudices.

Trump has wrapped his own beliefs, many times, around the Republicans and they have been derelict in their duty to admonish or distance themselves from Trump. Trump is still welcome at every RNC event.

So, now what? The American Public is seeing an endless pairing of Trump's hysterically out bursts, his own words of incitement, endless videos of protesters punched and kicked and cannot help but see Trump as both unglued and dangerous.

Some here provide another angle. An irrational and psychologically unbalanced defense of Trump's racism.

Trump has also demanded torture in his audition for the Office of President, but that is only part and parcel of the abhorrent persona Trump creates for himself.

How any of these policies and pronouncements are helpful to anyone has yet to be explained as Trump now spends all his time lying about the documented facts. Another disqualification for any further consideration of this bigot's pointless self obsession.

executive CEOs making as much in a day as workers make in a year = those who aren't working taking the money of those who do.

They should make that money, they should make it for their shareholders, open more locations and they should pay high salaries as incentives to create more jobs, better wages to create more productivity, more incentives. Why do you think Apple is such a powerhouse. Private, powerful, created thousands of jobs worldwide.

How many poor people can and do you know that can make jobs. More jobs, more growth, more spending and putting money into the economy, more taxes are put back into the economy, you are creating growth. You will never create it by over taxing the population and the people have low paying jobs, sit on their money and can't even afford to by milk, let alone pay their rent.

They're generally a low-intelligence, ignorant bunch, so it's not really a surprise.

So what you are saying is ignorant people don't have a right to say anything, do you personally know these people, sat down and had lunch with them, know their pain and their personal struggles in life?

We have a so called smart guy in the White House and turned out to be a liar, fraud, a bully, a divider and a racist. Didn't work out well for the country.

Let me get this straight. You're constantly bemoaning the lack of jobs that pay workers a decent salary, and you think this is because CEOs are not making enough?

Under GWs historically massive tax cuts for the super rich (and basically continued under Obama), the middle class and lower class have seen no trickle down at all. The rich get richer and spend it on -- themselves.

Because if Trump wins the game ends; there will be discussion about unmitigated illegal immigration, trade deficits will be dealt with and a lot of backroom dealing will be ended. Even worse, once an unthinkable Trump administration becomes an invevitable reality the rest of the US might begin to consider other candidates who are not part of the political establishment (Carly Fiorina comes to mind). We might even get term limits for the useless congress members---that's one thing that really scare congress about a Trump presidency. A Trump presidency must not be allowed to happen and there already would have been an "October surprise" in early 2016 if not for the existence of social media which no longer the Democrats and Republicans to control information.

Go Trump!

Wrong. Trump just loves the power which comes from being the leader of his country. All he cares about is being able to tell people what to do and what to think and the sense of idol worship that comes from it by those who would blindly follow his racist rhetoric. Sounds eerily similar to how Hitler came to power. Trump isn't even in power yet, and already the majority of political leaders from around the world don't want to have anything to do with him; the reason being that he would not be the type of leader who can work with others diplomatically. He doesn't deal, but just forces others to do his bidding. There is no middle-ground with Trump at all.

John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio who is also running for president, told journalists before a campaign event in Cincinnati on Saturday that Trump has created a “toxic environment”.

No, I'm sorry but this is untrue. Trump didn't create the toxic environment. That's something GOP candidates across party have been brewing for well over a decade. Trump is just exploiting it more successfully than other Republicans.

Earlier Saturday, Rubio grew visibly frustrated and his voice cracked with emotion when asked by reporters whether he could still support Trump as the GOP presidential nominee. “I still at this moment continue to intend to support the Republican nominee, but it’s getting harder every day," he said.

It's not just Rubio's voice cracking, it is the whole edifice of the Republican Party. Things will get a whole lot worse for them before they get better. Perhaps losing the presidency for the third straight time and losing their Senate majority will bring those with sense the opportunity to clean house.

Still, it's their own fault. Trump did not create this craziness; it is a result of decades of GOP bigotry, deception, pietism, and hypocrisy. This will be the Summer of Schadenfreude for those of us who saw it coming.

The deference between political realism, political idealism, and the inertia created by the Obama administration foreign policy failures, the dithering and diversity fragmentation of an entire culture and country.

Consequently the 58th, Tuesday, November 8, United States presidential election of 2016, voters will have the choice between a compulsive/pathological liar, and a the billionaire real-estate developer so toxic, obnoxious and offensive, that in the words of John Kasich “And that toxic environment has allowed his (Trump) supporters, and those who seek confrontation, to come together in violence, there is no place for a national leader to pray on the fears of the people who live in our great country.”..........

The leftists tactics are right out of the Communist playbook; the way Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin did things. History has proven Lenin and Stalin murdered over forty million of their own people in their quest for power.

None the less, the riots sponsored by the left are an undeniable attempt to impose their desire to replace the Constitution with "The Communist Manifesto".

Make no mistake about it. Bernie Sanders is a Socialist of the first order. Mrs. Bill Clinton is a devout Marxist, demonstrated year in and year out by her positions on progressive policy.

The United States is a system where government serves at the consent of the people, not the other way around.

The Democratic Party recognizes by convincing the voter they are not entitled to "unalienable rights endowed by their creator", rights to be protected by government; rather they are entitled only to rights granted by government in return for government sustaining their needs from cradle to grave.

Watched a 21 year old Puerto Rican interviewed by CNN last night on TV. When asked who she will vote for, she responded: "I have to wait to see what the candidates will do for me."

Translation: 'the one who will give me the most handouts will get my vote'.

As an undecided voter, IMHO, the actions by the Leftists and their enablers within the LSM will make Mr. Trump the next U.S. President. The further they continue upon this course, the more certain this becomes. Look at what happened after the DNC convention in Chicago in 1968. Because of the riots, the Leftists made Richard Nixon President. If they will continue down the road toward totalitarian tyranny, the American voters will respond in kind by voting for Mr. Trump to be the next American president. . . .

I haven't heard of any instances of Trump supporters filling a couple hundred seats at a Bernie rally, but that's what these supposed Bernie supporters did, filled a couple hundred seats and chanted "Bernie, Bernie" and one man took the podium and started speaking. Pandemonium. They went actively looking for trouble this time. A trump supporter has been shot to death. Sanders would be well-versed to state that these people purposely disrupting Trump rallies to the point that they are cancelled, do not represent his campaign. He didn't though, he blamed Trump. So,are these Move On activists going to continue to act in his name to keep further speeches from happening? I guess it's not facism when it's your own side doing it.

Looks like news of the end of the Cold War hasn't reached Texas yet. That's not a shock. News of the end of slavery clearly has but many of Trump's supporters are still angry about that appalling decision.

"Richard Nixon President"

As much of a racist, Jew-hating, warmongering , all-round scumbag Nixon was, he'd be regarded as far too left wing in the modern Republican Party. Seventy percent taxes on the top earners? Sanders is regarded as Stalinist by the febrile right for suggesting these ideas. Ben Carson's biblically-inspired tax had some of the right nodding away in 2016 AD.

Drumpf says it was Bernie's people who started the protest, but the one man they arrested was a Drumpf supporter, so who was the violent one...

I don't think Drumpf had any plans to actually go to the rally, he says the police warned him not to, but the police gave a statement today that they never had any discussions with Drumpf or his people about canceling the rally. I think he chose a place that was so diversified, a place he knew that he had less supporters and more protesters and he planned NOT to attend when he set it up. It was just a set up to cause trouble and it would make Bernie's supporters to look bad, but it was a Drumpf supporter who was arrested. Another set up planned by Drumpf and his people that backfired on him.''

Trump released all the racists and bigots from the closet. It's going to be hard to get them back in there, and most of them probably armed to the teeth, well, those not toothless from meth abuse.

Team Trump chose the location, somewhere Republicans do not dwell, to achieve this goal. He's really stirring up the hate.

"Free Elections" / campaigning means just that. Why should any one candidate / party be be prohibited from any venue within the sovereign borders of the United States of America?

I thot segregation was over?

If you really think he's stirring up hate, that's your opinion. Voice your opinion at the polls. In the meantime: Trump, Cruz, Sanders & Clinton have work to do.

Let's not impede on ANY of their efforts. Let's not intimidate, provoke, or use violence on any of those candidates' supporters. Mmm kay?

What in the name of the 20% of Trump supporters in South Caroliina who think the abolition of slavery was a bad idea are you ROFLing about?

What about the other 80%? You didn't try to focus on that, right? Of course not. LOL

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/29/white-americans-black-friends_n_5733250.html

A recent study conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute showed that 91 percent of the average white American's closest friends and family members are white, and just 1 percent are black. While black Americans tend to have a more diverse social network, they don’t fare much better. The average African American has 83 percent black confidants, 8 percent white confidants, 2 percent Latino confidants, zero Asian confidants, and 3 percent mixed-race confidants. One of the most glaring statistics from the study showed that when asked to name their closest friends and family members, 75 percent of white Americans didn't name even one person who was not white.

"What I think is clear is as Americans, or as people in general, you look to people who are similar to you, have similar interests, live in the same area [and] maybe work at the same place," she said.

So I guess that means 91% of all Whites really don't have Black friends and are not racists, so what does that make them? You're digging now.

That's okay. Sometimes its a healthy thing to test the barriers and stir the pot. Like when obama preached that whole "change" thing.

Some people bought that line, others didn't. Let Trump campaign anywhere he wants within the US. Let the truth ring out, for better or worse.

I hope more thuggish protesters keep coming and coming. The Executive Branch of the US gov. is ready for them. Law Enforcement, National Guard stand-by. We're a nation of laws, order. So bring it!!

Seriously, we (Trump supporters) are not going anywhere. Feel free to continue to calls us racists (we're not), to call us bigots (we're not), and pretend like we care what you think (we don't). Government is going to be reformed with or without you and your side of the aisle.

Okay, I agree with you there, Wc. Still, don't you find it amazing that several thousand people with diametrically opposed views of reality could confront each other without any violence? - there were only five arrests and no injuries. Given that Trump had assembled his circus in Chicago, that is remarkable.

Trump's problem is that his is a group of nativist supporters. This is not to say that non-whites wouldn't be welcomed, but they would be welcomed in a similar way as us Caucasian foreigners in Japan. Think about it: a black or Hispanic person attending a Trump rally, even if wearing a Trump cap and doing nothing other than what others are doing, would be viewed with suspicion by those around him or her. You can't deny that.

Trump has taken to calling his supporters "my people," which is a frightening turn of phrase, worse than those like Bass calling Obama "your president." While comically calling himself a "uniter," he's already throwing out the dog whistles about who should be considered American - and his supporters reflect that with their chants of "USA!" whenever a protester is thrown out.

Trump will never win the presidency, so that is not a worry. How his supporters handle being abandoned by him (and they will, immediately, upon his eventual defeat) and awaken to a Clinton or Sanders presidency is of more concern. They are still Americans, and outreach efforts must be made.

I disagree. First, you do not know that the venue was chosen to sow discord among fellow Americans---unless you have information that I don't. If that is the case then I would appreciate a link and, if you are correct, then I will admitt my error as I have done a number of times on this board when proven wrong. But I and many others are done with laws only applying to certain persons and not others. As for the Republican/Democrat angle (you insinuate that Republican strategists are involved) most of Trump supporters are sick of choosing the elephant or the donkey. At the end of the day, both parties pony up to big government in one way or another; it just a matter of degree.

Trump is the only candidate supporting vets, troops and Public Safety.

Draft dodger Trump is a military supporter how? Mocking McCain as a POW? Supporting troops is about more than sending someone's children to die for no good reason; its about taking care soldiers after they're injured and after the war.

Trump is on record repeatedly calling for violence against protesters. Offering to pay for their legal bills. He's the anger candidate. A beast nurtured by the Republican party for many years, only now it's off its leash and uncontrollable, even they are cringing at the monster they created.

Thank you for the link which reinforces my point, which is: Trump has every right to campaign where and when he wants to. Same as Bernie, Hillary, Ted and any one else who chooses to run for presidents. Applying this logic (he should have known that it wasn't a Republican city) is one of the grossest attempts at denying freedom I have seen in a long time. Furthermore, I bet if someone like me ( a fiscal conservative and a social centurist) had said the same thing to a person who was shot or mugged in Chicago I would have been called a racist or bigot and called out for using "code langauge." (Again see my first statement; I don't believe you are one of those people.

But back to Trump. The man can campaign where he wants to and should be able to do without the threat of violence and to say that he brought it on himself is just evidence of how far down the wrong road we have travelled. We are a nation of laws and that should not be debatable. It is the protestors who are wrong;not Trump.

"Free speech" is one thing. (I'm all for it). But when you go into public cursing, flippin' the middle finger and provoking a lawfully assembled crowd at a political rally in "free america" -then ur wrong.

There are laws that say once ur freedom of speech is likely to provoke or incite riots / violence, then its illegal.

Look at how Micheal Brown's (thuggish) step-dad invoked his free speech after Officer D. Wilson was not tried for justifiably shooting and killing Micheal Brown. He encouraged the looting, violence and burning. Disgusting.

Sam,

Trump has every right to campaign where and when he wants to. Same as Bernie, Hillary, Ted and any one else who chooses to run for presidents. Applying this logic (he should have known that it wasn't a Republican city) is one of the grossest attempts at denying freedom I have seen in a long time.

Nobody is saying he doesn't. The choice to hold a rally there was Team Trump's decision, and I am alleging it was intentionally done to create more of a scene than usual. His whole campaign is based on dipping into the bile and anger created by the Republican party for many years. There is no consistency in anything he says apart from his two main issues. Immigration and deportation. When you stir this pot of an angry minority expect them to be vocal, and expect a lot of other people to be dragged down to the same level.

Basically Trump has flat-lined. Some time ago. The hardcore base of supporters will change now, you're simply a loud minority. The whole campaign from Trump has been to brush with controversy, this is simply taking it to the next level. Trump's rallies are going to get more and more difficult to defend as this campaign degenerates further into reality TV.

We are a nation of laws and that should not be debatable. It is the protestors who are wrong;not Trump.

One last time. Trump has called for his supporters to beat protesters. Offering them free legal council if they do. He's inciting hate and he's inciting violence, both illegalities in a nation of laws such as your own.....

@Madverts. "That (inciting violence) is exactly what is happening at Trump rallies, caused by Trump's speeches. Charges should be brought against him for that and for preying on the angry weak-minded who know no better."

I haven't researched the videos yet but I would like to know if Trump is calling for violence or if people are reacting violently to ideas they don't like. Again, I don't know but if it's anything like Concerned Students 1950, BlackLivesMatter, etc. then it's not Trump's fault that the certain default position of certain people is to riot.

"Nobody is saying he doesn't." No but you and others are inferrring it.

"The choice to hold a rally there was Team Trump's decision, and I am alleging it was intentionally done to create more of a scene than usual." Big change of tune: you wrote, "I'm talking about the strategically chosen location to promote discord amongst fellow Americans. To get more free publicity as we know that there is no bad publicity for the Donald the Divider."

"His whole campaign is based on dipping into the bile and anger created by the Republican party for many years. There is no consistency in anything he says apart from his two main issues. Immigration and deportation. " Republicans hate Trump. You must try to get your mind around the fact that Trump is not a Republican. He may run on the Republican ticket but he is not a Republican. And yes, immigration and deportion (and unfair trade agreements and military welfare for other countries, etc.) have been consistently pounded by the Donald. That's why he is running high in the polls; the majority of America does not care about "family values," "gay marriage" and a whole host of other non-consequential issues. Notice that Cruz and Rubio didn't even register until they started copying Trump on these issues.

"When you stir this pot of an angry minority expect them to be vocal, and expect a lot of other people to be dragged down to the same level." The laws are the laws. If you want us to apologize because we want the border secure or to screen for potential terrorists and etc. all I can do is shrug my shoulders because it's not going to happen. Again, we have the right to assemble.

On a side point, many people worry about Trump being a fascists and compare him to Hitler (an insult to survivors of the Holocaust if there ever was one). WHile I also am sometimes appalled at the vulgarity of Trump I know two things; he will surround himself with good people instead of handing out political favors and he will grow into the job (much like Winston Churchill) and he will also be kept on a leash by the checks-and-balances of the US government.

I hate to stoop to your level, but how do you explain all the white folk, with jobs and insurance who paid for their university that are backing Sanders?

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

@Madverts. OK, I watched the video and read the reports--thanks for the link! Seriously; I like debate and think we can all learn from each other.

In the report I didn't read any quotes or see any pictures of Trump inciting violence. I read about Ted Cruz and a few others complaining about Trump inciting violence but nothing I would consider evidence. During the 12-plus-minute video were ultrta-left wing Rachel Maddow waxed on about her feelings/beliefs/ etc. I saw and listened to Trump for about 2 minutes. Here is what I saw. 1.) I saw a 78-year-old Trump support arrested for a sucker punch (as well as he should be, he was wrong and should go to jail). 2.) I saw Donald Trump remove people by telling security to "get him outta here." The ones "getting him outta here" were security personnel reacting to items being thrown or obsentities being screamed. 3.) I saw Donald Trump a number of times say he would like to punch someone in the face, etc. 4.) I saw Donald Trump joke---yes it was a joke!---that he would pay legal fees for anyone who punched someone and was arrested.

Now, 3.) is like me saying I would love to run over the girl crossing the street at a snail's pace because she is looking at her iPhone and preventing me from driving. Am I inciting violence? No reasonable person would say yes. The fact that violence does occur is wrong and does seem to be punished. Of course, I would also like to use your previous line of logic and say that shouldn't the protestors known Trump would be violent and that his rallies are sessions of hate and bigotry? I mean, it's all we here and see on the news. Does that no mean that any violenced towards protestors is deserved because they should have known better? Your previous position, not mine!

4.) was a joke. Again, any reasonable person would know this. If you or anyone doesn't and really thinks this is inciting violence then you really need to get out of the PC world. If I am walking down the streets of Japan and someone yells at me "baka gaijin" and I go across the street and break his jaw, I am wrong not the jerk yelling at me. His words do not cause me to be violent, triggered or repressed. On the other hand, if he is exorting people to kill me and a mob rushes towards me then I have every right to use violence to protect myself because he is inciting violence. Trump is not---repreat, is not---inciting violence. The videos do not show that; they show a novice campaigner who speaks before he thinks---and who is not playing to the PC crowd or a special interest group. Yes, sometimes he is out of line but he will learn.

Oh, I saw and heard one more thing. 5.) I saw Donald Trump call off a rally because he was worried about someone getting hurt. Strange move for a person who wants to hurt people.

This was a joke? Who the hell do you think kidding? Tell me, was he also joking about how today we have to be "nice to people, but back in the day, he woulda been out of here on a stretcher.."?? Was that a joke, because I sure missed the punchline and so did the crowd.

So, before you whine about violence and thinking its not fair, remember a few things. 1) Trump has used racism to fuel his campaign 2) Donnie has been endorsed by the KKK as well as other organizations. 3) Donnie's rallies are the only ones that have seen such violence.

Tell me, is this all just happy coincidence? Of course, we all know it is not. So, Donnie boy egged all of this on. What did he expect? Donnie ain't qualified to be president.

"Tell me, was he also joking about how today we have to be "nice to people, but back in the day, he woulda been out of here on a stretcher.."??

And the crowd did get it; if they had taken Trump literally there would have been a dead body. It's called sarcasm.

"So, before you whine about violence and thinking its not fair, remember a few things. 1) Trump has used racism to fuel his campaign 2) Donnie has been endorsed by the KKK as well as other organizations. 3) Donnie's rallies are the only ones that have seen such violence."

There has been much "discussion" here about the violence endemic in Trump Loyalty Rallies.

One observation is clear enough for everyone to agree on.

What Donald J. Trump says is the only thing that matters.

Agree or disagree, the violence and composition of Trump Rallies is the symptom, not the disease.

Trump is 100% responsible for what he says.

Here a suggestion: It is worth considering that protesters could change tactic.

Let Trump and his Neo-Nazi and KKK fans have their meetings peacefully preaching hate for Mexicans, Muslims, Women, Blacks.

Let Trump's words inform as to the content of his character and suitability for the Office of the President.

So far it is impossible to tell if Donald J. Trump is running for the Republican Party nomination or Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, but that confusion is the result of what Donald J. Trump says, not the revulsion most feel at his five year long campaign of racism.

Let Donald J. Trump alone. That is what he hates the most, being ignored.

"Make America Hate Again!" is a terrible campaign slogan anyway, but it is the slogan Trump preaches daily.

"Let Trump and his Neo-Nazi and KKK fans have their meetings peacefully preaching hate for Mexicans, Muslims, Women, Blacks."

Excellent analysis, as usual. Here is a rebuttal (granted it's from last year December but it's still relevent since you claim Trump hates minorities).

「As Gateway Pundit reported: A previous SurveyUSA poll released in September showed that 25% of black respondents said they would vote for Trump over Clinton. According to The American Mirror Trump would more than double the best result for a Republican in modern American history. Looking at the last 10 presidential election cycles, the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996.

The new poll? Stunning…Now there’s even better news for Trump. A new poll reported a stunning 40% of black voters and 45% of Hispanic voters say they would support Donald Trump. If these numbers hold up Donald Trump would win the 2016 election in a landslide.」

The point I want to make is that it is not hatred for any one group of people that united Trump followers. Rather it is the intense hatred of "typical Washington" that is doing that.

Wow! Those anti Trump protesters are really violent and destructive. Trump like it or not his words are not breaking the law. It's his method of media attention and he gets it.

No matter how you slice it and how much you hate or love Trump, his campaign has drawn more interest than the first Obama round of campaigning. The media is loving this and the fighting will only bring more viewership to Trump's campaigning.

You can't blame Trump for openly hateful groups that want to incite violence. =Why isn't Chicago doing something about these "openly" hateful and racist organizations? Do you job Rahm Emmanuel.

The trouble with walking down the middle of the road is that you get hit by cars going in both directions. The left paints you for being on the right, and the right paints you for being on the left. If you are not a rabid Republican, you are accused of being a Communist! That fear of 'supporting' Communist has lead America into supporting totalitarian leaders that have often failed because they did not support the people. Check our failures: China, Philippines, Cuba, Vietnam, etc.

Beyond the low IQ and poorly educated white Bundy types who else will be willing to vote for Trump? Also, can he actually get votes from the non whites? I don't really see any in his events. The white population is decreasing so I wonder if it is really possible for enough people to vote Trump in the WH.

"Isn't that half the population?" Well, when bitter Conservatives call Liberals "elites" they are implying they themselves are the opposite of that and this is verified by recent Conservative clowns like the Bundies. These white dudes who feel like they have been left out in the pasture (and many have been- it's not just their imagination) see Trump as their hero president to be as their savior to make the white man supreme again. Can Trump do it?????

One of Trump advantages-no matter if some agrees or not-is that he revealed big anger among Americans against corrupted politicians of both parties.Its obvious,his supporters dont care a clue about how he speaks his mind,but they see speaking their minds.Forget about his vulgarity-in case its considered so-and lets ask ourselves honestly and frankly,does he have sense of what is he saying?mostly yes. He is succeeding up till now,his remarkable success shows there are big part of AMERICANS support him,why lots of people look at them in an inferior way?!Dont they have same rights like others?If he is that bad,let Americans show it when through voting,not through violence.

I agree. But will those established politicians learn from this? So far, it appears not, and so Trump's chance of becoming president remains a distinct possibility.

Trump and the American people vs the globalists

Trump's business empire is global. Trump is a globalist, a member of the US nabob establishment who's never in his life shown one iota of care for the American people, or any people anywhere for that matter.

Take your MIC/war mongering/

Is the MIC you're referring to Made in China, another country where Trump has products made? Re 'war mongering', are you referring to Trump's call to send 20,000 - 30,000 troops to MENA and bomb the h@ll out of them?

Please, let Trump be judged by his own words.

The Americans don't need any filter.

Mexicans, bad. Muslims, bad. Women, bad. on and on. Do not twist Trump's own words! That is really the problem.

Trump has made it very clear. For instance, torture is his goal for Trump's United States military policy.

Religious Prejudice is Trump's goal, those Muslims are banned. Black People are 'dirty, dirty, bad people, bad guys, done bad things.' Why can't everyone see the world as Donald J. Trump sees it?

Only an ISIS Lover would protest, and that's why that brave American sucker punched the black fellow and said "next time he should be killed."

Can't Americans put aside the facts and simply bow to whatever Trump says?

Donald J. Trump cannot tolerate any questioning of his gang of truth and no one else should. Billionaires know better than any stupid poor black fellow, duh!

Come On!

Trump is super rich and the rest of the Americans are, in Trump's words, "Losers".

For goodness sake. Cancel the election.

Trump has already proven the dark truth of what makes everyone at his Loyalty Rallies so angry.

THOSE People are bad dudes. Duh?

THANK GOD! For Donald J. Trump!

As the slogan says: "Make America Hate Again!"

And that cannot happen soon enough to make Donald J. Trump, Billionaire, happy.

Americans should sit down, shut up and hate anything Donald J. Trump tells them to.

For goodness sake. The guy didn't become rich using slave labor at his clothing and bedding factories!

He just paid the prevailing wages in China. Get over it!

The man is a genius and anyone who questions him is Al Katie or those other people, dirty, dirty people.

=If you are thought of as a minority and a Trump supporter or even worse if you are anti-corruption you will be shouted down by this group that is mainly comprised of outsiders that are most likely part of a large group of well connected political operatives.

The facts are clear: those inciting the violence at the rallies are supporters of democrat candidates. It is they who are violating the Right to Peaceful Assembly. Did you hear about the mob of Trump supporters that disrupted the Clinton - Sanders rally shouting "Trump! Trump! Trump!"? No? Not yet, perhaps.

@Frederic: On the videos. those arrested had Sanders placards. Media commented there is no Trump suporters began disrupting. Anyway, I think Sanders should tell his supporters not disrupt any rallies.

Ohio and Florida are winner take all for GOP candidate. Media analyst says Kasich will win Ohio and Trump will win Florida.

It's either Trump is taking advantage of vulnerable people and making them hate, or he's just helping release the hate that's already deeply ingrained in these people. Either way, it speaks a lot about the country.

This is copied from the alternet: “The mob—not to be confused with Married To the Mob, an unsuccessful satire of The Godfather—responds best to totalitarian rhetoric that the party leaders deem taboo, or that even the game Taboo deems taboo. Someone truly dangerous like Donald Trump will do anything to get elected. If he ever runs for President, he’ll win with a joke about ejaculating on a stripper’s tits. Respectable society will sniff, but the mob will vote him in, like hungry dogs jumping on his throbbing bone.”

The complete article will give some more insight into the vilest candidate for president of the USA.

"Yeah. Like bombing the hell out of ISIS. -sounds like a good plan to me. ISIS ain't "contained" and they certainly aren't sum "jv" team. Goofy eh." The Republicans created ISIS. Donald Trump confirmed this. This agrees with Obama's policy (he voted AGAINST the war) and it shows that Obama is a great president and people just don't like him because he's black and want to believe he was born in Kenya.

You hardcore right wingers are hilarious. It would be funnier if it wasn't so serious though.

Complain Obama isn't a good leader but support the republicans blocking everything they try to do.

Complain that Obama is divisive but support one of the main perpetrators of this whole bananas birther no-sense.

Act like any form of social democracy is equivalent to some bizarre 1950's red scare.

(Quick better put a whole lot of in god we trust on the money and change the national motto so 60 yrs later a bunch of uninformed fanatical religious people can pretend the country is something it never was... )

The Republicans said: "Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down this wall."

The Republicans faught AGAINST the pro-slave states of the south.

The Republicans armed Saddam vs the Iranians. Then they armed the Iranians . . . seemed like they know what they were doing. Saddam "invaded" Kuwait. Not the Republican administration at that time.

You're doing it again. Trump favours torture. Trump talks about kicking ISIS ass. Trump talks about tens of thousands of troops on the ground in the Middle East. I agree that Hillary is in the pockets of the bankers and a foreign policy hawk. She is one of those with blood on her hands for voting for the catastrophe in Iraq.

Either Trump is lying about his tough guy foreign policy or will make good on his promises.

Which is it? Liar or warmonger?

Donald Trump is really a nice guy. He really cares about people and is generally an easy going and generous guy. Trump employs thousands of people and really knows business well. He knows trade and how to negotiate from strength. The Democrats on the other hand (the party of George Wallace and the KKK) usually resort to inciting hate and violence because they are wrong, scared, and hysterical. You can see for yourself based on the works they do who is at fault. Blaming Trump for the violence means he has more power over them and is living in their heads. But the real evil is the source of funding for the rioters, yes, they are paid thugs of George Soros.
