I am a journalist. I report on things. I value the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
When the rich, elite, or media attempt to skirt the law it makes my blood boil. People can say almost anything they want in this country. Sometimes the media broadcasts these statements. Sometimes people listen, but no one has to listen.
So what happens when a candidate rents a hall for an event and thousands of un-American protesters violently block the entrance and auditorium and prohibit the candidate’s speech from taking place? What happens when thousands of listeners are blocked from meeting and hearing? If the candidate’s name is Donald Trump, he is blamed for the actions of the protesters.
However, the thugs illegally disrupting the event are the ones in the wrong. They are the ones violating the civil rights of peaceful assembly and speech. When other candidates blame Trump, they are part of the anarchy. That is what the media fails to report.
“The ugly, divisive rhetoric we are hearing from Donald Trump and the encouragement of violence and aggression is wrong, and it’s dangerous,” Hillary Clinton said at an event in St. Louis. “If you play with matches, you’re going to start a fire you can’t control.”
Klinton should know. She was a disciple of Saul Alinsky in the 1960s. Rule 1 of Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals is: Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. Power is derived from two main sources – money and people.
The old Clinton front-group Move On, with Black Lives Matter, and others provide the people. Filthy-rich supporters like Jonathon Lewis and George Soros provide the money.
The final rule is: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Now the Klintonites cutting off the support network [Republican Party] and isolate Trump from sympathy via the media.
Dr. Todd Gitlin suggests in a recent column that Trump is at fault for violence and protests around him. He compares Trump to 1968 Democratic presidential candidate George Wallace as hate mongers. “The result, as in 1968, is a growing climate of violence,” Gitlin concludes. “It feels as if, somewhere, fuses are lit.”
Let me suggest action speaks louder than words. If Democrats erupt in violence they are breaking the law and should be held accountable. Gitlin mentions the Democratic convention of 1968. I would encourage him to consider Democrat politics in the city today.
The goons beat the man to the ground, broke his nose, Soto grabbed his genitals and stapled his forehead, according to prosecutors. Rodham-Clinton is from Illinois. I have heard neither she, Move On, nor anyone else calling on state Rep. Soto to step down. Nor have they opened fundraisers for Zwolinski’s medical bills.
