    Seems like he's doing a far better job of dividing than uniting. They refuse to let people protest, even peacefully and this is the result.

    Genuinely confused:

    Was this peaceful, or was this violent? And if it was violent, who was instigating? Do we know?

    You're getting quite good at creating salacious headlines.

    Content and accuracy... Oops

    I went to the article. The first paragraph - under the video, before the article even starts - says:

    So, are you saying these are Trump supporters that "threw burning t-shirts and other objects at police as their focus shifted from Trump to the Albuquerque Police Department."

    Police to protesters "This is an unlawful assembly". Last I looked we had a right to do that.

    Last I looked you didn't quote the full article. See the post above yours.

    Although it may run afoul of your false narrative.

    I always cite the link. Your not liking what I posted doesn't make it any less true.

    Why did you choose to use the word "peaceful" in your original post?

    I would never vote for Trump... I find him so driven by his ego that putting him in the position as (arguably) the most powerful man in the world scares the crap out of me.

    BUT, I find your original post and premise to be quite disingenuous and misleading. Hell, there's enough negative about Trump already. Posting false or misleading crap doesn't add anything to the conversation.

    The left doesn't understand what peaceful assembly is, they even threatened to hang their own DNC chairwoman for being biased to Hillary

    Where in the article you cited does it say the riot started out in any way other than a riot? Where does it say that it started out, to use your word, "peaceful"?

    I'm sure they just happened to have the equipment to start a fire.

    Of far greater concern is that you and others actually believe in the "Police State" accusation. Across the USA, the number of gullible Hillary / Hussein / Liberals that buy into the lies reveals the sad state of the populace. Dumbest group ever.

    For the left, 'peaceful' is the code word for 'violence'.

    And far right is code word for Communism, so what's your point?

    The point - since you ask - is that this isn't a thread about communism.

    The point - since you ask - is your choice to call the riot "peaceful", when the article says nothing of the sort.

    The point - since you ask - is you are being asked questions about the integrity and honesty of your OP.

    But by all means, play The Defensive Card.

    It was a violent riot, and it was the anti-Trump people causing it and doing it. They're recruited on Craigslist and Facebook, bussed in, and paid to do it. Call it Rent-a-Mob.

    http://krqe.com/2016/05/24/calm-turned-to-chaos-unlawful-trump-protests-continue-after-rally-ends/

    The people doing this are not "community action groups" or whatever euphemism the Leftie Progressives here and elsewhere like to call them. They are hate groups, plain and simple, using violence to suppress the rights of innocent citizens to peaceable assemble and speak freely on political topics.

    The point is that you are defending the actions of these lowlifes.

    It's the left, never take responsibility for their actions. To be expected.

    Bust out the world's smallest violin. You're surprised people are getting pissed off and violent at a candidate who has basically marginalized everyone that's not a white man?

    Doesn't look like a Hillary or Bernie event to me. Just looks like a bunch of people who hate dick head donny.

    This is what happens when you support a demagogue hate monger and pathological liar.

    So was George Washington a lowlife in your eyes too? After all him and the rest of the colonists used violence to fight oppression too.

    With that kind of attitude, it's no wonder that you always seem angry and miserable.
