Why would there be liberal protesters?

Its the conservative groups twisting themselves into pretzels over their nomination choices. Or evolving toward a brokered convention. They are doing this to themselves, possibly destroying the Republican party as well. No liberal riots over that possibility.

Well, at least they will be prepared!

We all know how crazy those RNC conventions can be... All I know is if my candidate doesn't win, I'm going to start throwing rocks at cars, that will show them, so watch out Cleveland.

The huge majority of these people have their work or their family to attend to, and don't have time to run around raising cane when things don't go their way.

Liberals, on the other hand... Just look how many moon bats sneak into Trump rallies to protest and whine. If Trump wins the nomination, all these people are going to band together and it will probably get ugly. The open minded and tolerant left really really hates it when people who don't agree with them win elections.
Trump has quite a few anarchists supporting him.

As someone else pointed out, every convention city prepares for large riots in advance.

If you are honest, which I am not saying you are, you will admit that liberals are far more likely to show up to national conventions and protest/riot than conservatives. Liberals are already preparing to protest the GOP convention more because of Trump. Look at the Detroit GOP debate...liberals made that a freaking zoo outside the hall and all around the streets protesting Trump.

The conservative protesters typically are really tame...standing their with pro-life signs, etc...

You are being naive.

See the Detroit Republican debate.

More liberals showed up than conservatives...only the liberals didn't have tickets to get in...they just showed up to protest "nazi" Trump, litter garbage everywhere while holding signs for "mother earth," and required constant police intervention so evil bigoted republicans could get in and out of the building.

Cleveland will be 100 times worse if Trump wins.

-----------

Google "G 8 Protesters"....are these liberals or conservatives?

Google "RNC 2012 Protesters"....are these liberals or conservatives?

Google "DNC 2012 Protesters"....are these liberals or conservatives?

Occupy Wall Street had how many arrests, rapes, etc? Many places noted that Tea Party protests would pick up trash on their way out and leave it cleaner than it was beforehand...

If we are honest, liberals are more likely to show up and cause trouble than conservatives.

I have seen Trumsters fight at rallies, usually ganging up against minorities.

Look to my own? I have not seen too any independent riots, but that does not mean an independent can't join a riot. Some probably have.

David Duke and his buddies might show up in full KKK gear.

Meh.

Democrats did exactly the same thing here in Charlotte in 2012.

Feds seek riot gear, fencing and barriers for DNC

Charlotte Cops Preparing For Potential Riots Ahead of Dem. Convention

Equipment showed up like they were getting ready to hold warfare. Biggest waste of money I ever saw. Only thing that happened were a couple of African Americans got shot during event, but that happens most every week.

You assume anti-trumpers are liberals, but that is really not true. Most of the opposition come from the other side, and the concern in Cleveland is not liberals, but Trump supporters who will go nuts seeing Trump rejected by the RNC even after he wins the votes.

What a waste of money. The parties should be forced to pay for any security needs.

And Trump promotes conservative ideas? Since when?

Many Trump supporters are liberal independents(non religious people who want free stuff but only for white people) and fake conservatives who just use the Bible to justify their bigotry. Most Trump supporters hate the Republican Party and attack other republican candidates viciously. Most of the negative threads in this forum and nasty tweets against Cruz, Bush and Rubio have come from Trump supporters not liberal democrats. Trump has repeatedly giving them permission to act violently and has even promised them that he will pay their court fees. The Trump savages who attack protestors think they are above the law.

Regular conservatives are voting for Cruz.
