Yeah, if there was only such a thing called "middle ground".

Have security/police escort them out and tell them if they come back, they will be arrested for trespassing and prosecuted. No need for shoving from non-peace officers, threats or slurs. It's called being an adult, diffusing the situation quickly and efficiently and moving on with the rally.
I would counter that the security at Mr Trumps events are very efficient at diffusing the obnoxious out of line protestors. Hopefully future attention seekers are aware of how they will be dealt with

Default Concerning trend amongst Trump supporters

I've been watching this election process so far and reading here at city data and noticed that a lot of Trump supporters think violence is okay, acceptable and they actually seem to encourage the idea of violence.

What the heck is going on? Why are followers of this man so filled with anger/violence? It's down right unacceptable and should be discouraged.

Reading the thread about violence at Trump rallies is just another example, some really disappointing responses on that thread.

Maybe, maybe not. You're going to have protesters who know they can get a rise out of the supporters in an effort to "expose" them, if they can't maintain any self-control.

That gives the media the ability to run with the narrative that all Trump supporters as bigots who hate and are intolerant of everything non-white and non-Christian (which is ironic in itself) in this country.

All it takes is a few incidents like this. Sound familiar?

When an ISIS soldier is being filmed, cutting the head off an American citizen, what do you suggest, negotiations? Our current regime has basically practiced that, how's it working?

What candidate's supporters don't think violence is ok? They all support violence when it enforces the ideas they support.

I agree.

We might not like things he has done or said in the past. He is self funding, business minded and straight forward. He is going to grow the economy by adding more jobs. His resume proves he knows how to manage.

To be strong in a worldwide economy we need a business leader.

Because cutting off the head of an American simply doesn't matter. Our government wants ISIS (or any other terrorist group whenever we need regime change) to eventually cut off the head of Assad, that's the goal whether we like it or not.

TRUMP 2016

Meh. He didn't even manage to beat normal stock market growth and would have been far richer if he'd
just invested in index funds.

Quote:
The AP says that, if Trump had invested in an index fund in 1988, his net worth would be as much as $13 billion. The S&P 500 has grown 1,336% since 1988.
Other billionaires’ net worths have beaten the stock market’s growth in that time. Bill Gates, for example, saw his grow increase 7,173% since 1988 to $80 billion. Warren Buffet’s wealth grew 2,612% in the same time period, to $67.8 billion.
Donald Trump Would Be Richer If He Had Invested in Index Funds - Fortune

This notion that Trump is this world class businessman is a fallacy.
He's a self promoter and little else. He's figured out what people want to hear and he panders to it but doesn't have the first clue how to make it actually happen.
