Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events,” on the George Soros funded MoveOn web page. “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.”
MoveOn has consistently functioned as a lobby group for the policies of the Obama administration, including the disaster of Obamacare and the continuation of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the escalation of the war on terror that has turned America into a police and surveillance state. In 2007 it backed a bill trotted out by then Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to continue financing the occupation of Iraq.
The group acts as a front for wealthy Democrats. It was founded with the help of the financier George Soros who donated $1.46 million to get the organization rolling. Linda Pritzker of the Hyatt hotel family gave the group a $4 million donation.
Many of the Democrat and “progressive” candidates supported by MoveOn have failed to be elected since the organization was formed in 1998.
The violent demonstration in Chicago on Friday may represent a precursor to the sort of activity the organization will engage in as it tries to “shut down” its political enemies and elect either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.
On Friday night many of the protesters shouted “Bernie!” and held placards announcing their support for the socialist Democrat.
Don’t blame Trump’s words, blame Leftist anarchists those behind the unrest. No matter who you stand behind in the election, as a community of US citizens we cannot support a government and media that supports unrest and uncivil behavior in order to shut down free speech of those they don’t agree with.
Leftist anarchists have been protesting for years, sometimes with little to protest about. Lefties have it in their blood to protest. Lefties will protest any conservative politician who threatens their government check, or promotes capitalism. Despite the downfall of socialist countries like Venezuela, the Lefties adore socialism.
Anyone that excuses this behavior is giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America, and taking away someone else’s freedom of speech.
If you respect the first amendment you’re against protesters shutting down a rally with a mob behavior because they do not agree with the speaker.
Actually, last night’s violence would have happened no matter what Trump said. In fact, it still would have happened if Donald Trump were not the front runner and instead Ted Cruz or Ben Carson were in Chicago tonight. These people were paid to protest the GOP front runner no matter who he may be.
Ironically these protests happened at a college campus where “diversity” and freedom of opinion and ideas are supposed to be championed…
All Americans including Cruz, Rubio and Kasich supporters of which I am one, need to circle the wagons, come together and support one another whenever ANY of us are under attack by leftists, Muslims, open border advocates, and/or those desiring to destroy our Constitution and our Republic.
