Donald Trump was scheduled to do a rally in Chicago as part of his presidential campaign. After conferring with police authorities he decided to cancel his appearance. Mr. Trump’s primary concern was for the safety of those attending the rally. But that was not enough for the anti-Trump protestors like Portia Boulger, an activist from Ohio and supporter of Bernie Sanders. Boulger attended the Chicago rally in a Trump for president t-shirt and gave the Nazi salute.
This protest was well planned to do what it did, stop freedom of speech in Chicago. It can be characterized as a Chicago style drive by shooting, with the target being the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Immediately after this near riot Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich denounced Trump for his “inflammatory rhetoric.” None blamed the protestors who appear to be made up of illegal aliens, Muslims, Moveon.org, members of Black Lives Matter, Democrats and other people like Portia Boulger a supporter of Bernie Sanders (see the raw video of the protest below).
This is akin to blaming the victim rather than the rapist.
This is political correctness gone wild. This is why Donald Trump is so popular, he is not politically correct and the people love him for it.
Watch how the Trump rally in Chicago nearly turned into an all out riot with confrontations between the protestors and Trump supporters, video by Fox News KTVU Channel 2:
Political correctness is what Trump is all about. Donald Trump made the following statement on Fox and Friends:
President Obama is a great divider. That’s what you’re seeing here. President Obama has greatly divided this nation.
There is division between black and white. There is division between economic groups.
He has done a terrible job in terms of unifying our country. President Obama should have been — and had the advantage of being African-American– of really bringing the country together. And I thought that was what was going to happen. I didn’t know if he was going to be a good president. You can never tell.But I could tell you one thing I thought he was going to be a unifier. He has turned out to be a terrible unifier. he has turned out to be a divider.
A lot of what you saw last night [in Chicago] was Obama.
Here are some interviews after the clash in Chicago:
EDITORS NOTE: During the Obamacare protests, the Democratic controlled Congress amended Federal law H. R. 347 to make it illegal to protest at Federal campaign events. ALL of these anti-Trump rallies, be they violent or not, are FELONIES under this law that the U.S. Congress passed.
