Attempted attack on Trump

Had a Trump supporter done this to Hillary, we’d be hearing nonstop for the next week about how Trump’s supporters are out-of-control violent fascists.

But a Democrat does this to Trump, and the MSM ignores it.

  1. The Left uses violence against us, so they’re complaints will be useless when the boot is on our foot. Oh, you want freedom of speech? Look what you did to us. Now suffer and die.

    But seriously, the 60s are coming back with a vengeance, things are moving so fast that I predict no later than the next decade there will be actual street battles in this country.

    • It’s not the 60s. In the 60s, “the man” was still in power, there was a mainstream, and the US wasn’t $19 trillion in the hole.

      It’s their country now. The BLM thugs are actually the storm troopers of the establishment. In the 60s, the “kids” were not a part of the establishment, however well connected some of them were. What I’m saying is, we are in deep shit.

      • I agree with you completely. It seems that the script has flipped and we are now the rebels. All the talk about equality and respect was a sham designed for 1-affirmative action/racial grievance jobs and 2-a transition period to the White minority.

      • The United States is not “$19 trillion in the hole”. The US has used its political power to make the United States Dollar the world’s reserve currency since 1973. The national debt is the means by which the world’s central banks store their unused reserve currencies.

        Much of the present conflict is about returning to the first United Nations Conference known as Bretton Woods, and transitioning to a Globalist reserve currency mediated by the United Nations. The fantasy that the world’s most powerful nation, and the most powerful nation in the history of mankind, has to “borrow” the currency it has the sole legal right to create is one of the more absurd neuroticisms of “the right”.

        We are moving to something like Keynes’ Bancor and what will likely be a reformed IMF SDR, which was intended to serve a similar function after the Nixon Shock.

        Whatever the case, the days of free floating exchange rates are soon to be over. This has major consequences, but a big one is 1) Wall Street will lose a lot of money as they primarily skim off the top of global trade and 2) trickle down economics will thus fail and imports will become more expensive as the dollar loses value and 3) the need for massive public works projects will be evident. Infrastructure has been left to rot for a reason. There is plenty of work to do, and our industry will have to be rebuilt again. This what it means to “Make America Great Again”

        The temper tantrums you see are simply engineered so that when this massive stimulus comes, it will seem like a glorious relief to everyone, so much so they will not realize how they have ceded their monetary sovereignty to the Globalist regime.

        So, in short. Yes, we are in deep shit. But it won’t seem that way for a number of years, and it will possibly never seem that way if the population successfully is culled by some kind of mass eugenics program or mass sterilization..


        March 13, 2016 at 12:01 pm

      • @eryxmachus,

        Yes it is, and your history is potty, and “transitioning to a Globalist reserve currency mediated by the United Nations.” is meaningless.

      So… what kind of country do we live in now?

  2. Remember this one?

    “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

    If Trump said that the MSM would be demanding that every Republican officeholder make a public speech disavowing support for him in November.


    March 12, 2016 at 4:02 pm

    • When oh when is the truth about Obama going to come out? Not the birther shit, but his associations with Ayers, Farrakhan, etc. All hard core America-hating, white-hating radicals. Why is this being suppressed?

  3. That’s because it’s ok to try to silence (or murder) a fascist as defined by our fascist rulers.

  4. I wouldn’t say it’s been “ignored.” Fox had it basically on endless repeat all morning.


    March 12, 2016 at 4:10 pm

  5. Look, I realize that most of the commentators here are going to think what they are going to think, but I noticed the commentators on Naked Capitalism have been nailing the riot at the Trump rally.

    It had all the earmarks of being caused by agent provacateurs.

    Look, one of the guys doing the ground work for the Republican establishment’s campaign against Trump is Roger Stone. He is known for these kinds of tactics. Nixon’s people used them too. In this case, the GOPe gets a twofer. Even though Trump is the victim, people now automatically associate him with disorder and racism. Then the rioters themselves (many of them actors) get tied to the Democrats, and in particular Sanders who is actually a stronger candidate for them than Hilary Clinton (no scandals), which helps the eventual GOP nominee, who won’t be Trump, in the general election.


    March 12, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    • OK, Ed call me a stubborn dummy, but I don’t think this debacle was a product of agents provacateurs.

      Yeah, I know all about Roger Stone, but this is 2016, not 1968. The “anti-fa” students have been planning this for weeks on FB. I thought it was stupid of Trump to have the rally in Chicago from the moment I heard about it. People have been whipped up for weeks about the Laquan shooting, and Chicago leftists are maniacal in a way that us sedate NYers can’t understand. Anyone could have predicted this would happen, no dirty tricks needed.

      I do agree that GOP-E gets a perfect opportunity to seize control of the process and boot Trump because he’s “trouble” but saying that the demonstrators really aren’t Democrats is just, well, silly. You do realize that Russ Feingold supported MoveOn’s Ilya Sheyman. Are you saying that MoveOn isn’t a sincere part of the Democratic Party? If so prove it and I need solid proof, not “Naked Capitalism says so.” Thanks.


      March 12, 2016 at 6:20 pm

    • No, no, and no. First of all never explain as conspiracy what is easily understandable as stupidity. The BLM mobs and Bernie supporters either lack self control, or they simply aren’t wise enough to realize these tactics will redound to Trump’s benefit.

      Second of all, Roger Stone is a well known Trump supporter. If he DOES somehow have his fingerprints on this, which is highly doubtful, it’s in furtherance of Trump.


      March 12, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    • I don’t know what the MSM has been saying about Chicago because 1) I’m not in America right now and 2) I don’t watch television. But I doubt anyone believes Trump is at fault. Because these are the same fools who’ve been at it since Ferguson and Baltimore. Plus, Trump shrewdly cancelled the rally. Which shows he’s not itching for violence and has a cool head despite what critics claim. I do, however, agree that the violence was organized and deliberate. More than that, the organizations behind it are funded for that very purpose. Call 1-800-RENT-A-RIOT


      March 12, 2016 at 7:46 pm

      • “But I doubt anyone believes Trump is at fault.”

        Well I do watch television and all of the morning shows had the spin that the violence was the result of Trump. That’s the official spin and I wonder how that’s going to be reflected in the polls next week. It’s weird, because the Trump rallies are the actual victims here. That’s what’s being attacked by moveon and BLM brownshirts, but they so own the media they can go in, riot, and blame the victim and that’s the official story.

      • For those who have no access to MSM coverage of Trump’s Chicago rally, this NPR radio interview with a Black Lives Matter agitator who tried to commandeer the stage is a representative example:

        I encourage everyone to listen to it, not just read the transcript, to get a full idea of the heat being thrown Trump’s way. They’re painting Trump’s event as Ku Klux Klan rallies in all but name. It’s an all-day smear, every day. We’d be naive to think this would have no effect on Trump’s electoral chances, especially when Republican quislings are giving bipartisan credibility to the slanders for their own cynical reasons.

        That said, as John Derbyshire once put it, “If there is hope, it’s in the comment threads.” Even though NPR’s online readership is definitely left wing, the top-rated comments on the link are all critical of the BLM guy’s actions and of anyone trying to “shut down” Trump’s events. People have low regard for establishment mouthpieces and are thinking around them.


        March 14, 2016 at 3:05 am

    • Stone definitely has a reputation for dirty tricks including riots. But Stone and Trump have been friends for 30 years. They’ve had a few tiffs over the years. But Stone was working on Trump’s campaign last year. I don’t know what, if anything, Stone is doing now. I caught him on infowars a few weeks ago and it sounded like he supported Trump. Of course, that doesn’t mean anything. That guy is very deceptive and works in the shadows. I wouldn’t put it past him to be a double-agent or triple-agent. Pretending to work for the other side (or no side) so he can more effectively screw someone over.


      March 12, 2016 at 8:04 pm

      Still, the GOPe is overplaying their hand. Due to demographics, one of their own will not win against any democrat. The Bush years were their high water mark.

  7. One of the most pleasing things I have observed about the Trump supporters is that so many of them are young white males.
    The establishment are claiming that Mr Trump is divisive. But it is probably too late for civility and compromise. In the 1980’s Margaret Thatcher was accused of being divisive but she was up against people, – the trade unions led by Stalinists, the IRA filth, who in their own ways wanted to destroy the UK. She needed to wage war on these people. It appears that the USA too has reached the point where it is too late being nice.

  8. So whaddya make of this, Lion? Are we really living in a democracy when a peaceful political rally is disrupted by thugs, and the entire establishment supports the thugs?

    Did you read the coverage of the Chicago riot by the NY Times? The fnb who wrote it said that anti-Trump protestors “merrily” taunted Trump rally-goers. They are all against us, buddy and it ain’t paranoia if it’s true. This is very very bad.

  11. this week’s events and the media reaction to them are putting me in a very ticked off and radical mood. if Trump needs some muscle at his rallies i’d be glad to volunteer. look at this incredibly Orwellian NYTimes headline:

    “Trump’s Words Were Destined to Stir Violence, Critics Say
    In foreboding conversations across the political world, elected officials, party leaders and historians warned that the campaign was teetering on the edge of violence. This weekend it finally arrived….”

    It’s the EXACT opposite of what happened: leftist thugs violently attacked a legal, peaceful Trump rally.
    The media blames the victim and that dog Kasich blamed Trump as well. Absolutely disgusting.

  12. The Lefties are treating the disruptions as a form of preemptive defense by those people who will be hurt (i.e., lose influence) if Trump is elected.


    March 12, 2016 at 5:30 pm

    • And the MSM is denying that there was no violence. I’ve never seen anything quite like this. No one denied that student radicals burned down Columbia University. Every MSM account of the violence is a lie.

  13. For months I’ve seen commentators on various websites for months saying they thought “they” would try to take Trump out.

      • Lion, you need to accept that most Trump voters are not supporting him because of his immigration views. The most loyal Trump voters come from the least immigrant-rich parts of the country and “immigration” consistently ranks low in their exit poll priorities.

        They are supporting him because they view him as the magic man who can solve all the problems. A man of strength and power. That should be troubling.

        I worry about the smart class of Trump supporters, people like you and the folks who comment on this blog. I think they have been single-mindedly focused on the immigration issue — which is a very important issue, do not get me wrong for one second — and allowed themselves to get into an strategic alliance with a terrible and destructive political figure who is unleashing some real chaos on this country.


        March 12, 2016 at 10:30 pm

      • The chaos is being caused by the media and the protesters. Trump is prole, but the media has been giving us prole reality TV nonstop for the last 20 years, what did they expect would come of that?

      • “Every president has done less than the president before since Nixon.”

        That is unfair. Obama has done a lot more than Bush. Obama, at least, allows some small amount of workplace enforcement; bush cut it 98% in his first year and actively stopped CIS from doing its job. Obama is willing to work with local and state governments to deport criminal aliens when Bush wasn’t.

        Similarly, Clinton was a little better than the elder Bush. Of course, Obama is worse than Clinton. But it’s hard to do anything when the Bushes have set the bar so low and the donors and the media don’t support you.

    I have nothing but a hunch to go on, but I wonder if the leadership of both parties are coordinating these attacks on Trump as a last ditch, desperation effort to do something, anything to throw Trump off balance ahead of the winner-take-all primaries.

      I believe the ‘increase’ in the white death rate is a stastical trick where a slowdown in the decrease of their deathrate is being reported as an increase in deaths. It’s sort of how a 10% budget increase is called a ‘budget cut’ if the original planned increase was 12%.

        Someone at WaPo did a study & found that where ppl are dying of opioid addiction, Trump wins. It’s a strikingly robust correlation. Which is not causation, yada yada….

  20. Trump should file criminal and civil charges not only against all the lead organizers but also against the leading Hillary and Sanders campaign advisers, and have anyone whose property was damaged join in. Force them to testify whether they engaged in a criminal conspiracy will look quite bad in a general election campaign, and will probably get them to back off.

    The Undiscovered Jew

    March 12, 2016 at 9:34 pm

  21. In fact he should file criminal and civil charges against both Hillary and Sanders and force them to explain what they knew about the organizing. That sort of legal action will put them entirely on the defensive for the riots and make the public blame them instead of Trump. That will tie them up in court with terrible publicity for months, during which time Trump can hit them over the head for the rest of the general election.

    • Excellent idea. I don’t know exactly what the relationship is between and the Democratic party, but it would be interesting to find out in an open court.

      Ilya Sheyman is the head of He issued this manifesto, which I was stupid enough to get angry over:

      ““Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events.”

      That made my blood boil – of course, no Republican leaders support Trump, but is he lying or distorting? Hard to tell but I think he’s actually telling the truth – progs live in a very distorted bubble. What sickens me is the “on notice.” He’s a would be thug, and he’s telling US that WE are on notice.

      Now, I realize that I am playing guilt by association here, but Sheyman ran for Congress in 2012:

      He had the support of the whole array of progDems: Harold Dean, Russ Feingold, the works. I’m not concerned with the fact that he lost, but with his associations. This would be an interesting thing to study in an open court.

      Ilya Sheyman is the head of He issued this manifesto, which I was stupid enough to get angry over:

      They all coordinated the riots to help Hillary and damage Trump. The Republicans also seem to have gotten wind of it, at a minimum.

      As long as Trump only threatens legal action against protestors they’ll continue to do this at every rally and blame him for any injuries that happen at them.

      Instead of filling charges against the protestors, he needs to file criminal and civil charges against senior officials at Moveon, Soros, Hillary, Sanders, the DNC. It’s an easy, easy case to be made in court (organizing a riot is a felony) and will tie all of them up with legal papers for the rest of the year at least.

      It can also be used as leverage over the RNC to block them from changing the convention rules, since the Republican establishment probably was also alerted about the Democrat’s plans.

      The second Democrat officials get requests for legal documents is when the protests will be stopped cold because they have to explain why they started the violence in court. It destroys their framing of the issue and then becomes an advantageous line of attack when Trump begins the general election campaign against Hillary.

      None of this will work if he only takes court action against the individual protestors. Senior Democrats need to be put through court action.

  25. When the Democrat officials foot-drag and try to delay answering questions in court, which they will to the extent possible, Trump should publicly say that proves both campaigns engaged in criminal conspiracy to organize riots.

    And going forward anything that goes wrong in the slightest at a Trump rally should be immediately blamed on another illegal activity done by Hillary and Sanders.

    • Isn’t it funny how the gaystream media has zero interest in finding out who funds and organizes the Black Lies Matter brownshirts……. The Democratic Party is a documented violent criminal syndicate (using government force to commit genocide against Whites by taking their money via taxes and handing it to non-Whites so that non-Whites may have more children while Whites have fewer or none), so it’s no surprise it would also fund and organize violence against its ideological foes. God bless Donald Trump.
