Iím voting for Donald Trump, so I went to see him speak. Protesters broke my nose.

Quote:

I still canít believe how poorly the police handled the protests. I live by Leviís Stadium, where the Super Bowl was. They had every single cop out there. Yet knowing the violence thatís been breaking out near Trump rallies, San Jose wasnít prepared for it last week? So the Los Angeles chapter of Log Cabin Republicans held a news conference back in San Jose on Wednesday, to get some answers from the cityís mayor, Sam Liccardo, and its police department about why they let me and other people get attacked and only made a few arrests.

The whole thing made me angry. Here in Northern California, I feel like Iím a unicorn: Iím a gay Hispanic whoís a Republican. It was much harder to come out as a Trump supporter than it was to come out as gay ó the minute you say youíre for Trump, everyone comes at you ó but this has pushed me out of the closet about it completely.

I should be able to vote for whom I want, and I shouldnít have to deal with violence to go hear my candidate speak. If people really want to protest at rallies, they should do it peacefully. I have a young niece and nephew, and I donít want them to think this is how politics work in the United States. We canít let our freedom of speech and our freedom of assembly be tarnished by politicians like those in San Jose who do not have our safety at heart.

Pardon me if I'm nonplussed. I was in the streets in the late-60s and early-70s, only at that time law enforcement officers often were the ones doing the bloodying.

And watching the video, aggression flowed from both sides.

I know that to some mindsets, this violence is Obama's fault, but it's not. Trump has capitalized on anger, hatred, and fear throughout his campaign as he's from time to time stoked the fires.

More to come....
Thanks from Hollywood

Some people think sitting there and turning the other cheek when someone attacks you is the proper thing yo do. I do not fault people who think that's bullshit.

I've watched the on the ground videos of these "protests" (most of them are riots, but I digress). Even the MSM is having a hard time spinning them into an anti trump narrative. It's kind of hard to do that when they wave a foreign nations flag, gloat about trying to take over this country and violently assault people for words they don't like, words they ignorantly think they don't deserve but display for the world that they do, and then some. So if some guy gets fed up with the bullshit and throws a swing back, I'm not too inclined to fault them for that.

Only in America can you say "we need to ensure people who are hurting this country stop doing so", and be met with overwhelming hatred and disdain. Well I don't intend to take the boot from anyone, especially not some hyper liberal upper middle class douchebag virtue signaling as his nation crumbles, or some spic that sneaks into our nation and gets better treatment than our own people do all while laughing about how he's reclaiming these lands and didn't have to do a thing. We're not taking that from them anymore, nor are we taking it from the institutions and big whigs that prop them up. That's why they're out there rioting; only a fool or an invader would flinch at the thought of making america great again.
Thanks from caconservative, Sabcat and coke

Beasty, some of your posts are worthy of being printed and framed.

Trump is a loser. Republicans are holding their noses. All the spin in the world is not going to change that. November 8 will not be kind to you. Say so long to the Supreme Court for a generation.

We don't need the presidency. We're just playing nice right now.
