    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.

    Will Trump start by deporting the illegals his branded companies hired? (alleged, maybe President Trump will reform the media by making it report the truth instead of going to any lengths to profiteer in the ways for-profit entities have to.)

    That's all you've got to say? I'll tuck your post away until the next Leftist preaches about how partisan Conservatives are.

    Not surprising, however. The Democrats are a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.

    Typical bogus moral equivalence. Like there's no difference between Trump supporters peacefully attending a political rally and violent leftwing protesters.

    Some people are worried that we are trying to elect Hitler jr and are trying to protect the nation by killing off the Nazi followers. A bit obscene but that's how it's viewed by extremists. I stopped caring a long time ago when I realized that no matter who we vote for we are utterly screwed.

    So you're justifying their behavior? The hypocrisy is nigh unbelievable.

    So you're justifying the violence too? My collection of hyperpartisan leftwing comments is growing quickly.

    As seen with nothing at stake here. As scandinavian socialist. We have free healthcare, free schools and so on. voted along with sweden and norway among the happiest people in the world.
    I am the person with absolute lowest income in my country (I get a kind of ordinary social welfare retirement)
    No worries and no real poor or homeless people here.
    I wish the best for americans and my bet is bernie and a bit of socialism.

    Was depressed last year when visiting u.s. ... So big difference between rich and poor.

    Imagine the literally poorest person in my country went across the world last year to infinite loop to pick up an apple watch .... While the the poorest person i saw in tenderloin sf took a **** on the ground and used sock to whipe ass.

    For your own sake go for bernie (know it may be too late) also the support from the rest of the world is 0 if Trump gets power.

    Last I checked, no Scandinavian country has nationalized their means of production,

    Last I checked, Sweden's schools rank lower than the U.S.'s.

    How dare a presidential candidate prepose we actually enforce the rule of law already on the books, we should give everyone amnesty thereby inviting millions more people to ignore our immigration laws and come here illegally, setting up the need for yet another amnesty.

    No , I am just saying that your candidate is a complete and utter piece of ****. People on both sides of the aisle can see that. Does this justify attacking Trump's brainwashed masses? No, not at all. You don't do that for any other con man's marks, so why would you do it here?

    Probably because no one wants to do that.

    Only just.

    ...though Finland is doing quite well for itself.

    The rich are in power in the US, they make the rules/laws and decide which ones will be enforced. Right now they want to flood us with illegal immigrants, to their own ends. Something the EU may want to consider.

    How long can your social welfare system hold up to the current flood of immigration?

    So you disagree with Trump, and the first thing you do is blast his supporters here rather than the violent protesters. So hyper partisan.

    "OH YEAH, WELL ALL YOU REPUBLICANS ARE EVEN WORSE!"

    Nationalizing all means or just some there is a very big difference and Bernie im sure is talking about the less.

    But yes we have nationalized some means
    American weapon production is also sadly more or less nationalized.

    It is not about 1-5% going to worlds best schools but all 100% of children going through some of the worlds best school system.

    Bernie's more of a New Dealer, and you all aren't socialist, so much as a welfare statist. No single government currently residing in the western world thinks it's a good idea to nationalize their means of production.
