Agreed!

And here you derail again.
You know where this mindset was also prevalent? In virtually every fascist or Authoritarianism regime. If you stand out in a negative way or dare oppose the authority you get beat down. Know your place and play to the tunes of the leaders or else.......
Punishment that fits the crime? Not in our world, no Sir! "they" deserve EVERYTHING they get!
No wonder Trump and his followers admire Putin so much!

Brave new world......

Why are they protesting someone they don't like instead of supporting their own candidates?

Protesters at Trump rally sole purpose is to be annoying and disruptive. Once they are removed, they start crying to the media about how they were treated.

No one is buying into that peaceful protester excuse. They knew exactly what they were getting themselves into.

How does that work for me?

I'm not the one screaming racial epithets and shoving people NOR am I in the marines.

Talk to the marines bud.

OR watch the video. It's pretty self-explanatory and if you are calling someone a ni**er - it's a given that you are a racist and a whole wide swath of people including employers will want NOTHING to do with you.

I am not derailing....you basically agree that a person who goes to a PRIVATE event, their individuals feelings and wants outweigh the vast majority....again, PRIVATE event....not like they are protesting at a public park. How would you feel, say at your child's wedding, an invited guest stands up and starts protesting

Yes...I find this emerging attitude very disturbing indeed.

However, the dangers of such an attitude are being glossed over with the trendy proclamation of 'not being politically correct'.

I hate to be presumptuous but I can't help but think Trump knows exactly what he is doing and what a big parts of his audience is. That would also explain his KKK and Duke debacle. Trump is too clever and well versed in PR to let something like this happen on accident.
Trump Well VERSED in PR.....HAH, I'm a Trump follower and he is not at all well versed in PR, if he were, he wouldn't come out with the ridiculous comments he comes out with. Trump is unable to filter anything, or hide his feelings about anything...he's real, up front and out in the open.

I recall how I felt when they kicked Sanders off his stage. I said I hope and pray they try this at a Trump rally and see what happens. I am sure the people in the audience felt the same way so they were ready for them. Last night the CNN reporter tried to shame Trump and make him responsible for everything that goes on at his rallies. I am glad he stood firm.

Disgusting people. These people need to be charged with assault.

To answer your question;
I wouldn't like it, although the analogy is a bit off, comparing a wedding to a political rally.
But even so, my solution would not be to incite the other guest and tolerate, them acting out in a mob mentally by verbally and physically abusing the individual.

Nope. I fear that is exactly what he wants you to think. Him being "real" and it is working. The guy is playing the crowds like a fiddle.
