Welcome to the party.

When they disrupt an event such as this Trump rally, it's a common Leftist tactic hailing back to several communist takeover movements. It's called 'No Platforming'.

No Platforming allows the Leftist to shut down opposition by not letting them have a voice by any means. This tactic gets used in Leftist universities such as in Canada when a Men's Rights group wishes to have a speaker, the Left flips out and they pull fire alarms and invade the venue and disrupt it with screaming protestors. The commies in China used this tactic very effectively, using students to bully political opponents.

It's nothing less than an attack on American values and democracy. There's protesting, then there's 'No Platforming' which has no business in a free democracy and should be treated as the enemy of such that it is.

Well said. I believe many classical liberals will see this and realize they have a knife in their back simply because of their skin color... As the left pushes hard left... more people will realize they are moderate as left wing authoritarianism rears it's ugly face.

Societies progress and crumble. One person in power -> few -> many -> all -> one -> few -> many -> all

Elections are won in the moderates. When it gets down to the brass tacks it's the moderates that swing it.

Moderates look at BLM and inherently want nothing to do with it. It's suited the Democrats to use them to galvanize the black vote against Bernie, without he'd probably upset $hillary's apple cart. Only now, they are proving to be a windup toy that has run amuck. Serves them right.

This sets the tone for Democrats to bleed moderate support like a gutted fish. This was just a Trump rally. The Republican Convention will be ground zero for these radicals to show up to and try to disrupt. They will put the icing on the cake for the silent majority. We're talking car burning violent chimpout riots all left at the feet of Democrats. It will galvanize the silent majority to roll out hard this election cycle and it will be for Trump.

Tell me this isn't going to happen? Look at how insane these people are, do you think they're going to grow some sense and let up? Last night only encouraged them to do it again. They're so stupid they think it was a win. lol This energizes them, fueling them on to even more stupidity.

This is a political tactic. Similar strategies have been used by everyone from the Nazis to the communists to our very own Sons of Liberty.

It's an overly aggressive political tactic that has no place in a democratic society. Voices are to be heard, not silenced. If they are stupid voices, then the people get to judge that for themselves.

Make no mistake, it's a portent to political violence.

I am fascinated by your political views. So, do you honestly think that people in both China and Canada form some kind of 'unified left' that has direct control over leftists in the United States too?

The riots have only increased the Trump coverage so far, so it wouldn't seem to be a very effective tactic. They shut down a single event and got front page national coverage and doubtless a fair amount of international attention as well. Controversy only feeds into getting Trump more media attention, not exactly a very good tactic to shut him down, is it?

I'm 'fascinated' by your faux incredulous attitude that you can't fathom a political philosophy and its global effects.

I didn't say they were overly intelligent. When you play or work with fire, expect to be burned and prepare for it. I don't see a good exit strategy for the Left from their Frankensteinian construct BLM. It's kind of a Merkel.

Except it doesn't' really work for a presidential rally in the age of mass media where it has the opposite effect. That said, America has neither values nor democracy.

That's why so many plan to vote for trump. People feel their freedoms are eroding and events like what happened at that rally on prove it. I suspect most trump supporters don't feel he be done great president but rather feel he will at least pull us back from the brink of full sjw rule where you have to look at the ground and keep your mouth shut. The overbearing nature political correctness has taken created Trump's rise. He could have never won a decade ago. I agree with you though, if it's between this censorship and trump,I chose trump.

This. First thing Trump did to make me consider him was come off as someone who will tell SJWs to shove it.

That's exactly it. He's been analyzed a few times for that, and it makes sense. It's gotten to the point where you only have freedom of speech if you don't offend someone and it's ridiculous. Someone needs to restore the balance and tell the whiny college kids to grow up and deal with real life.

When I saw that I figured they would Streisand him, and so did Trump obviously.

He was being interviewed on CCN over the phone last night and after 15 or 20 minutes of them hammering a narrative that they were working hard to construct he pointed out "you keep playing the same clips over and over, you should go see how it really is out there". CNN were trying to make it look like he caused a riot. They're worse than fox.

EDIT:

~20 minutes was the length of the call that he was obviously watching. Those dip shits looped that shit for over the hour that I watched and their attempts at forging that narrative was like watching a cat play with its kill, it was fucking disgusting.

I thought a lot of them must have subdued their neon hair. Or the cameras selectively opted to not show them. I only saw two with half grown out dye jobs.

However, it was pointed out to me how many of them were of a different nationality. Though I couldn't say whether or not it's representative of the general population or to what extent it deviates from it.

This is just the establishment and its PR/media machine in full rabid swing against both Trump and Sanders. The idiots think everyone on the inet are as dumb and malleable as the dumb people participating in the lobby group, moveon.org, that the establishment just unleashed to wreak havoc on the Trump meeting. They think we're dumb enough to believe Sanders sicked the dumb idiots on Trump. They also expect us to believe that Sanders also has the power to order the law enforcement to not interfere with the rabid dogs participating. These things are so plainly obvious that it's an insult the establishment believes we'd fall for it. Another thing that's obvious is that the same lobby group also does damage to Clinton at the same time. Here is the proof that the elites give up on her. When it comes to both Sanders and Trump, their biggest worry is the country having been hijacked from the people. Sanders/Trump for president!

You know, I've been fairly pro-Sanders up until this point. I may have recently decided to go with Big Donald, but I had mostly supported both candidates up until now. I liked Sanders' anti-establishment and anti-big bank stance (whether or he's been in politics that's what he's pushing) and I also generally support anyone or anything against Hillary Clinton.

But these fuckwads apparently care more about messing with the Republican primary more than they do supporting their own candidate or even protesting Clinton, who they're supposedly against. They're now doing the bidding of the establishment and the big banks that they purport to hate so much.

Fortunately, this makes BLM and the Sanders protest puppets look like the fucking idiots they are. Anyone who was undecided between them now has a clear choice - freedom or violent censorship.

What Burners don't understand is a socialist can't be anti establishment and anti big bank.

Wow. You had to trot out Satan in this?

When someone has to trot out a mythical figure of evil in order to demonize an idea, it's a good clue that they can't back that up with actual facts.

So they're clueless then, fine. I still support the anti-establishment sentiment they have, even if they don't quite understand it. I also hope when he inevitably loses to Clinton (even if she has to cheat, she'll win) that they'll continue to support another anti-establishment candidate, especially if their big issue is that our government is currently quite broken, and extremely wasteful.

As I said in the thread last night, I was actually there to go see him with my girlfriend and we had been looking forward to it all week. I have never seen so many cops around and still felt unsafe, we didn't even have any signs or apparel that said 'Trump'. Normally I keep mace or my CC on me but obviously I couldn't bring it to the rally.

I have never seen so many Bernie stickers on people that had swastica signs with Trump's picture. It's like these morons don't get Hitler had already tried to overthrow the government and wrote Mein Kampf when he was running. He gotten beaten so hard by his father he got brain damage and put in a coma, Trump never even hit his kids once when they were growing up.

By the way, the Chicago PD officers I spoke to last night were probably the nicest people out of any group there and I'm sad to see they got hurt.

I talked to an old boyfriend of my sister who is a cop and asked him what he thought about police brutality. He was from NY, and he had no idea what I was talking about.
