It's called tact and decency, which is pretty clear that not everyone are graced with those traits.

I'm not sure why you brought Hillary Clinton into the discussion, as I'm not a liberal or a supporter of hers. Why would you assume such a thing and assume that I want free stuff?
I would argue the protestors are displaying a lack of tact and decency when they show up at a private event for the sole purpose of disrupting it

And that "unfriendly response" might be met with handcuffs, probation or in one guy's case, loosing the opportunity to join the USMC.

Did you also learn that "two wrongs don't make a right" when you were six?

For like the 15th time, no one is saying otherwise.

I see you conveniently ignored the rest of my post.

Some of you seem to think it's okay to response with violence and aggression (if not, you're "soft"), when encountering someone who's not being violent towards you. That's disturbing.

Who are the violent thugs, again?

I certainly learned the the difference between "lose" and "loose", which is more than you can say.

Not a typo. A malapropism. You remind me of a disrupter at a Trump rally. Dumb Lives Matter!

The Donald Dump rally in Chicago on Friday should be interesting.

But you are being as equally difficult as your point makes it sound common. It isn't. Especially when you consider the number of people at his rallies. No other candidate comes close.

I suggest that you watch a few of his rallies. This almost never happens despite him holding massive rallies where 10s of 1000s are present.

And keep in mind, despite having this many people present, we are only talking about a few people at each one. The media never talks about the huge crowds, but they always focus on the few asses who lied to get in and then make attempt to disrupt the rally.

Per your video, that "security guy" was a secret service agent.

Was that supposed to hurt my feelings, or...?

Hmm, childish insults. This is the Internet, so I really don't expect anything less.

Why aren't any of these assault "victims" suing or pressing charges?
