    Worthy of a total repost.
    I noticed the same thing right off the bat, instead of taking the high road and condemning the lawless and potentially very dangerous thugs for busting up a Trump rally, they take the low road and, by extension, aid the Soros funded urban terror campaign by blaming Trump for provoking them.

    Apparently, we can't tell mexicans that they can't continue to flood our borders in limitless numbers, else they'll get very angry. Blacks, I'm not even sure what their beef with Trump is, they must believe that he is a closet neo Nazi KKK wizard ready to deport them if elected, like they've been told.

    Obviously, these craven republicans are butthurt and desperate that no one cares enough about them to protest and that Trump, as always, is dominating the news ,,, So they slither in and take a few potshots that can only help Shillary and legitimize these lawless disruprions for the sole purpose of getting their faces on the news for 30 seconds.
    Expected that out of lightweight, hanging by a thread Rubio, Kaitch or whatever his name is is totally irrelevant, Cruz at least I hoped would have a proper response, but it was not to be.



    Patrick J. Buchanan
    Friday evening’s Donald Trump rally in Chicago was broken up by a foul-mouthed mob that infiltrated the hall and forced the cancellation of the event to prevent violence and bloodshed.


    Brownshirt tactics worked. The mob, triumphant, rejoiced.



    And the reaction of Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich?


    All three Republican rivals blamed – Donald Trump.


    With his “dangerous style of leadership,” Trump stokes this anger, mewed Rubio, “This is what happens when a leading presidential candidate goes around feeding into a narrative of bitterness and anger and frustration.”


    Rubio implies that if Trump doesn’t tone down his remarks to pacify the rabble, he will be responsible for the violence visited upon him.


    Kasich echoed Rubio: “Donald Trump has created a toxic environment (that) has allowed his supporters and those who sometimes seek confrontation to come together in violence.”


    But were the thousands of Trump supporters who came out to cheer him that night really looking for a fight? Or were they exercising their right of peaceful assembly?


    Cruz charged Trump with “creating an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discord,” thus offering absolution to the mob.


    Friday night cried out for moral clarity. What we got from Trump’s rivals was moral mush that called to mind JFK’s favorite quote from Dante: The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.


    As news outlets have reported, Friday’s disruption at the University of Illinois-Chicago auditorium was a preplanned assault.


    Behind it were the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Hispanics hoisting Mexican flags and cop-haters carrying filthy signs to show their contempt for police.


    People for Bernie, a pro-Sanders outfit, tweeted, “[This] wasn’t just luck. It took organizers from dozens of organizations and thousands of people to pull off. Great work.”


    Now, Sanders did not order this assault on the civil rights of Trump supporters. But MoveOn.org has endorsed him, and “Bernie” signs and T-shirts were everywhere among the disrupters. Hence, he has a duty to disavow this conduct and those who engaged in it.

    If Sanders refuses, he condones it, and is morally complicit.


    Can one imagine how the media would pile on Trump if working-class white males in Trump T-shirts invaded a Hillary Clinton rally and shut it down?


    Can one imagine how the networks and cable TV channels that host town halls with the candidates would react if hell-raisers sneaked into their audiences and shouted obscenities during discussions?


    The keening over the First Amendment would not cease for weeks.


    Some of us have been here before and know how this ends.


    When the urban riots broke out in the ’60s, Hubert Humphrey declared that, if he lived in a ghetto, “I could lead a pretty good riot myself.”


    At his 1968 convention in Chicago, radicals baited and provoked the cops in the front of the Conrad Hilton, and as this writer watched, their patience exhausted after days of abuse, Chicago’s finest tore into the mob and delivered some street justice.


    “Richard Nixon,” wrote Hunter S. Thompson, “is living in the White House today because of what happened that night in Chicago.”


    Hunter got that one right.


    That fall, Humphrey was daily assailed by the kinds of haters now disrupting Trump rallies. Everywhere he went, they chanted, “Dump the Hump!” At times, Humphrey came close to tears.


    That fall, Humphrey realized the monster he helped nurture.


    My tormentors, he said, are “not just hecklers, but highly disciplined, well-organized agitators … some of them are anarchists, and some of these groups are destroying the Democratic Party and destroying this country.”


    In 1970, when President Nixon sent U.S. troops into Cambodia to clean out Viet Cong sanctuaries, and students rioted, Ronald Reagan called them “cowardly fascists,” and declared, “If there’s going to be a bloodbath, let it begin here.”


    Not much Cruz-Rubio-Kasich equivocating there.


    When radicals stomped down Wall Street desecrating Old Glory, construction workers came down from the building sites they were working and whaled on them.





    Union president Peter J. Brennan was soon in the Oval Office – and in Nixon’s Cabinet. “Secretary Bunker,” we called him.


    Prediction. Given their “victory” in Chicago, MoveOn.org and its allied nasties will try to replicate it, again and again. And as Americans came to despise the ’60s radicals, they will come to despise them.


    And, as in the 1960s, the country will take a turn – to the right.


    America has changed from the land we grew up in. But she is not yet ready to allow ugly mobs screaming obscenities at Trump and his folks inside and outside that hall in Chicago, or their paragons like socialist Bernie Sanders, to take over the country.


    Those raising hell in the street in Chicago and that convention hall are unfit to be citizens of this democratic republic.


    For as Edmund Burke reminded us, “Men of intemperate minds can never be free. Their passions forge their fetters.”

    World Nut Daily is a good place for Pat Buchanan.

    Also, too, reprinting entire articles goes beyond fair use and is a copyright violation.

    Pat, regardless whatever anyone thinks, is historically accurate in his summary of the past that we have just seen repeated 2016 in Chicago. These days it's easier with Internet aided mob-sourcing.

    Wow, just wow. The OP has a fundamental misunderstanding of the high road and the right to protest in a democracy. I'll leave this thread to the Trump supporters where it belongs.

    The original post is yet another example of how deeply Right-wingers despise all that a liberal democracy stands for.

    Pat Buchanan:

    "America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known."

    You do know that other persons of color originally took blacks captive and sold them into slavery, don't you?

    Still going on, but enslaving women, boys and girls for sex.

    When you say originally, do you mean Egypt circa 3500 BC?

    It'd be nice if you'd give them all derogatory misspellings of their names, instead of the special treatment. Or, better yet, not playing that trick since it's very lowbrow. But I too understand the fun and have had to stop myself on a couple of occasions... it's just not the right thing to do (namecalling, not my not stopping myself :p )

    Evasive much? You know the post I responded to. And you can disagree with Pat, the same way you can disagree with Pat's recital of actual historic events that are relevant today. What the man brings is historic perspective. To a population whose schooling has forsaken history but for social justice oriented mangling and omission of events. As evidenced by the prior post that I quoted.

    Thanks for making my point - Are you now proposing that violent action is a proper response to mere words ? The occasional polite heckler who speaks out of turn Obama faces are absolutely nothing compared to the disruptive, organized, single purpose, inciting, racially motivated hired shrill mobs Trump faces, both you and I know that - Playing the same "Get her out of here !" sound bite over and over makes it looks like a 12 year old put this montage together.

    BTW, if you threw a tomato at me that would be assault and I would be justified knocking you out.

    Would you prefer that they were still in the motherland, living in mud huts eating dirt and dying like flies ?

    Butthurt much ?
    You know what to do, don't you ? You need me to draw you a roadmap to the "report" button, or is crass snitching a little below your high standards ?

    It's history that makes Trump look wanting. The populist scapegoating and nativist banter he spews has rarely ever lead to anything good. Usually quite the opposite.

    Without looking too hard, I could also compare him and his to the brown shirts Buchanan calls his opposition. But I won't do that, because Nazi analogies are SO DAMN TIRED these days.

    Ah so you were talking about Egypt! Well then historically you know this started after the dawn of agriculture and after a few generations a social elite 'ruling class' emerged. Along with their success came 'wars', and often survivors of the defeated were sold/traded as slaves. Slavery probably existed in some sort of form prior to this, but everything around this era is a little fuzzy as records during this period are extremely rare and only get slightly better after the unification of Egypt around 2900 BC.

    Slavery as a concept has more kin ship to social status then race, the impoverished and defeated have been made slaves throughout history (some say most of us are still slaves, only the chains are economic). The very notion however that slavery brought 'prosperity' to the kin of those enslaved is incredibly obtuse. Pat clearly has problems with history.

    Also seemingly ignores that fact that this country could not possibly have developed into what it is today without first exploiting unpaid labor at its inception. The gratitude and deference should really being going the other way. Everything that comes out of Pat Buchanan's mouth is filtered through a White nationalist perspective. It's a highly distorted history at best. More accurately, revisionist.
