Let's see. Register Muslims, close mosques, beat up protesters. Seems there is not much about the First Amendment that Trump and his supporters care for.

I support BLM and their arguments. I support the right to protest. I'll even support what this guy did. A rally also has the right to throw you out when not on public property.

There really isn't much to comment on here.

There is NOTHING wrong with protesting. Being able to stand up at a political event and make a statement is the corner stone of our country. I guess Trump supporters only care about the first ammendment and freedom of speech if they agree with the speaker.

The disruptive, rude, BLM protester should have been quickly escorted out of the venue by the security people unharmed.
Exactly. Handle this like grown adults. There is absolutely no excuse for violence. None.

Not when what happens next is assault. Just because you don't like what someone is saying doesn't mean you can physically attack them.

Seriously, what is our country turning into.

Not as many BLM "protesters" as last time time they tried to disrupt a Trump event. LOL.

You mean when compared to the measured, well behaved actions of BLM thugs such as burning down buildings and illegally blocking access by commuters to roadways, etc?

While a few of Trumps supporters acted very inappropriately toward the BLM protester and should be condemned for their behavior, I've yet to see any progressives criticize the deplorable, violent, destructive, and threatening behavior by the entire group known as BLM.

Neither them or some of the posters here understand the concept of physical assault. Dumbo Trumpo followers think you have the right to kick or hit someone if they disagree with you. Instead of waiting for Trumpo's security to remove this subject they go ahead and assault people like savages.
all i can say is that the guy got what he deserved. he wanted to disrupt a trump rally, he got that. trump and his supporters are not going to go quietly into that good night, they are going to rage against the dying of the light.

true enough, however you have to remember that there are consequences to ones actions. if i were to go to a political rally, i want to hear from the candidate, not some idiot protester trying to disrupt the proceedings. if you want to debate a candidate, or protest them, there are places to do that, but inside a political rally for that candidate isnt the time or place.

you want to stand outside the rally, and let your opinion be heard by the people walking into the rally, fine as long as you dont block efforts to get into the rally itself. you want to debate a candidate, then get with their people and agree on a time and place for the debate, and have at it.

They were merely exercising their right of freedom of speech. Just like the many, many Tea Partiers did at town halls across the country in 2009. Funny, I don't recall Conservatives getting all hot and bothered by those disruptions. To the contrary, those disruptors were cheered on by the right.

I guess it all depends on which side the disruptors are on, right?

That event hall was fairly empty in the back and the sides. See all that empty space where the guy was walking out.

Surely Trump didn't ask the media to turn their cameras around the facility for this event. Because there was lots of empty space.

What was your opinion on what they did?
