Another Trump rally and another group of violent criminals turning out to protest Donald Trump. This time in San Jose, California.
From the FoxNews story – “A group of protesters attacked Donald Trump supporters who were leaving the candidate’s rally in San Jose on Thursday night. A dozen or more people were punched, at least one person was pelted with an egg and Trump hats grabbed from supporters were set on fire on the ground.” Read full story
And the media continues to call these criminals “protesters.”
More from the story – “Some banged on the cars of Trump supporters as they left the rally and chased after on foot to frighten them.”
Protesters? More like thugs.
San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo, a Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, criticized Trump for coming to his city and igniting problems that local police departments had to deal with. “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible of behavior of his campaign,” Liccardo said.
You read that right. The mayor of San Jose is blaming a political candidate for the criminal behavior of an unruly mob.
The Trump campaign held a legal and peaceful rally. The attendees were attacked as they were leaving.
Protesters are encouraged, and have every constitutional right to peaceably assemble. That’s what makes America great. Our country allows citizens to exercise their voice publicly.
However, these hoodlums are not protesters following the Constitution. They are criminals who are trying to intimidate law abiding citizens by attacking them physically, destroying property, setting fires, and chasing people in the streets.
This is criminal behavior that needs to be punished not defended by the mayor of San Jose.
