You know what's missing in all these stories? Trump supporters causing any violence: Protesters Punch, Throw Eggs at Trump Supporters in Calif. "It was unbelievable," said Steve Tong, a Cupertino resident who attended the Trump rally. Tong said after the rally, he was walking toward a nearby parking structure and saw protesters surrounding and taunting an elderly couple. "I've never seen anything like that in America before," Tong said. Police Officer Assaulted, Punches Thrown After San Jose Trump Rally SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A few hundred protesters fought with supporters of Donald Trump after the presidential candidate’s rally in San Jose Thursday night. Over a dozen fights broke out in the crowd. Punches were thrown, violence erupted. Even police had to retreat. The San Jose Police Department made a number of arrests after the Trump Rally and said an officer was assaulted. Protesters followed Trump supporters to their cars as they left the convention center. Around the corner and away from police protection on San Carlos Street, a mob mentality took over. A young man wearing a “Build The Wall” T-shirt was assaulted by several young men. Fearing for the man’s safety, KPIX 5 reporter Len Ramirez yelled at him to get away. Outside again, there was another assault, and another. Street fights broke out on Almaden Avenue. Andrew Acevedo, of Redwood City, said he was assaulted several times while getting stuck inside the anti-Trump protest rally. As police tried to restore order protesters forced a police pickup to retreat. Police lines formed again, but the crowds only grew. Another young man was chased down like prey. He ran until finding some police officers who stopped his attackers. San Jose Mayor Justifies Mob Violence Thousands of Americans participated in that most benign of civic rituals in San Jose, California, on Thursday night: seeing a presidential candidate speak. Of course, that candidate was Donald Trump, so as these engaged citizens streamed out of the arena, they were subjected to astonishing levels of violence. An angry mob pelted eggs, tomatoes, and bottles at the spectators—as well as the police, who tried (and failed) to maintain some semblance of order. Other Trump supporters were set upon and punched. One was left with blood streaming down his face. (See representative video below.) The mayor of San Jose, Democrat Sam Liccardo, reacted angrily to the events. Not that he was particularly upset at the violent mob that attacked innocent Americans, of course. No, his ire was directed at Mr. Trump. "At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign," the mayor said. Apparently it was downright "irresponsible" of Trump to even set foot in California's third largest city. The Washington Post characterized the mayor's remarks as if they were just standard partisan hackery: It noted that the mayor is a "Hillary Clinton supporter." But Liccardo's remarks were far different than, say, a cable TV flack claiming that Trump's tax policy "favors the rich." (And by the way, he employed the same logic as as a slack-jawed misogynist saying of a sexual assault victim, "hey, her skirt was so short, she was asking for it.") Mayor Liccardo justified committing violence against people with whom he disagrees politically. That's an attack on the very foundation of our system of government and the First Amendment, and a very dangerous one.
