Violence Condoned as Long as It Is a Trump Rally?

We have all seen the unbelievable violence that has been thrust upon the attendees of Trump rallies. If you haven’t seen the videos, then it is time to change the news station you watch. Why are the innocent victims being beaten and harassed while law enforcement stand down? Do the leaders of these cities have political agendas and are these protestors really angered by Trump’s message or are they being paid to riot?

Juan Hernandez was brutally beaten as he walked out of a Trump rally in San Jose, California. He left the rally with a broken noise, a mild concussion and his clothes covered in blood.

“It was riots. Riots were happening everywhere, and the protesters were picking out supporters and sucker-punching them, taking them down.”

Juan told reporters that a friend who was with him at the Trump rally had her glasses ripped off her face while officers stood and watched. When she asked why they weren’t doing anything about the violence, they said they were told to stand down by the city’s mayor and police chief. He also commented that it was easier to come out as gay than to attend a Trump rally.

San Jose’s mayor, Sam Lacardo, a Democrat and Hillary supporter, responded to the violence at the rally, “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign.”

Is it really Donald Trump who is inciting the violence, or are these protestors being paid to disrupt the rallies and attack the peaceful attendees? In a report by ABC News,  a man came forward and admitted that he was paid to protest the event.

“I was given $3,500 to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Fountain Hills,” said 37-year-old Paul Horner. “I answered a Craigslist ad about a group needing actors for a political event. I interviewed with them and got the part.”

As most assume the protestors are all Bernie Sanders supporters, Horner said:

“As for who these people were affiliated with that interviewed me, my guess would be Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future.’ After I was hired, they told me if anyone asked any questions about who I was with or communicated with me in any way, I should start talking about how great Bernie Sanders is.”

In a Washington Post article, Brandon Tatum, an off duty police officer who attended the Trump rally in Tucson, said, “I’m a police officer, and I have been through a lot of dramatic situations, and I have to be honest, I felt very uncomfortable there.

"It was the violent protesters who were violating people’s constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly.”

If this violence looks familiar, it is. Who can forget the Ferguson riots initiated by “Black Lives Matter”? We saw the same reactions here and in the Baltimore riots as police were told to stand down while protestors literally burned down businesses and attacked innocent bystanders.

Have our leaders forgotten the oath they took to protect the citizens in their cities and towns? Have politics and the left agenda become more important than the people they are supposed to protect? What punishment are they receiving for ordering police NOT to protect the innocents? We have to remember that in this day and age, under the Obama administration, lawlessness is the norm. Those who break the law are protected while law-abiding citizens are left to fend for themselves.
