Clarify for me....do you have an issue with the protesting group, or the group protesting the protestors?

I don't want to misunderstand, but it sounds like you are saying it's ok to protest, but if you react to the protestors, then that is disturbing

Unless you are of the mindset that thinks it's ok to protest if YOU agree with the cause, the ones you don't agree with are "disturbing"

It's life, just in a different form. I did not know of Trump's appearances at WWE events. When I watched the videos my respect for him actually went up. I realized this is just him. I understand you may not like this and prefer a more measured attitude like Obama. That's fine. Trump just isn't for you.

Agreed.
I's amazing to actually witness live how one person can so easily sway the masses by promoting hatred and fear!

Do any of you even watch Trump's rallies???
Just yesterday in Orlando, he pleaded his supporters not to hurt a man, that they were all kicking.


Trump doesn't encourage violence at his rallies at all.


However, he does make jokes about hurting people...but doesn't do it

I'm fine with peaceful, non-disruptive protests, and I'm fine with peacefully removing anyone disruptive.

I'm against violence on either side.

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.
Of course that's what he meant. He knows very well what he is doing. Anyone who thinks his words are just "an accident" is an idiot. The "old days" when blacks knew their place.

No...if you SUPPORT a racist and act on that support in a racist way (i.e. assaulting minorities who protest) THEN you're a racist. That's how that works.

Funny how, for the most part, the only people who fail to see the racism of Trump supporters...are Trump supporters themselves. Democrats, fellow republicans, the media, entertainment mediums, and regular working folks like myself, have all addressed the racism in Trump's campaign ad nauseum, but when addressed with facts, the typical Trumpeter response is that it is all a left-wing conspiracy to take down the messiah.

It's like the whole world is trying to tell y'all that you have a giant booger on your face, and instead of looking in the mirror and addressing it, you're content to stand there and scream about how you don't have a booger on your face.

So now, were all collectively grossed out by the giant booger on your face, and astounded at your refusal to see or address it.

I see how you think....you point to a few supporters at a rally who you perceive as racist, so you generalize as say "Trump supporters are all racist"....hmmmmmm, sure, that is logical

Yikes, this is getting way beyond crazy. People want to ask the Trump questions, why is he afraid of questions? He incites anger and violence.

There have been candidates and even presidents, in my lifetime, that I could not stand and disagreed with. This is the first time an actual candidate for president has worried and frightened me. What decisions would he make as Commander in Chief or any decisions about the welfare of the USA?

Seriously, molly, you need to get a grip.

No one said that all anti-Trumps are "mentally disturbed". They were talking about those anti-Trumps who crash his rallies for the sole purpose of malicious disruption---these aren't the innocent anti-Trumps who just want to ask him a question. Got it? Now, calm down.

So to review:

He makes jokes from the stage about hurting people.

Consequently, his supporters routinely kick and shove people around.

He assures them that if they do hurt someone, no worries, he'll pay their court costs.

But he is entirely blameless for his supporters' actions?


You do see the gaping flaw in that logic, don't you?
