Trump and Violence

Donald Trump is being condemned for his views on diversity and his position on violence.  President Obama has described people who “feed suspicion about immigrants and Muslims and poor people, and people who aren’t like ‘us,’ and say that the reason that America is in decline is because of ‘those’ people. That didn’t just happen last week. That narrative has been promoted now for years.”  The President should know about promoting violence having said, "I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” and “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."  Inflammatory  statements are acceptable if they are made by people we agree with. 

Trump rallies are being interrupted by some very radical individuals.  Several people carry Communist flags.  The media has done its best to conceal the true nature of Trump’s opposition.  In a CNN report of Thomas Dimassimo, the man who attempted to physically attack Donald Trump, he is described as “a college senior.  He’s bright, he seems intelligent but he’s obviously very politically active.”  During the interview Dimassimo states, “Trump is willing to destroy this country for power for himself.”  From the CNN interview it might be concluded that Dimassimo is a true patriot fighting to protect the country from a dangerous threat.   People would come to an entirely different conclusion is they were to see photos of Dimassimo standing on an American flag.

Trump’s campaign has exposed many of the moles within the Republican Party.  116 members of the national security community have signed a letter threatening that, if Trump is nominated, the will not support the nominee.  Many of them say the will support Hillary Clinton.  Max Boot, a foreign policy adviser to Marco Rubio, said, “I would sooner vote for Josef Stalin that I would vote for Donald Trump.”  These people are, and probably have never been, Republicans.  The can make vicious attacks against Republicans but behave like gentlemen when they oppose Democrats.
