    As presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump gears up for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July – where he is almost certain to face angry progressive protesters – Breitbart News has compiled a list of the worst examples of anti-Trump violence so far this year. Below is a list of some of the most violent progressive demonstrations that have happened at Trump events across the country throughout the GOP primaries—a harbinger of what is likely to come in the days, weeks and months ahead. In one case, an anti-Trump protester even tried to murder Trump just this week. As...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal officer says a man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas told authorities he tried to grab an officer’s gun so he could kill the candidate. A complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Nevada charges Michael Steven Sandford with an act of violence on restricted grounds. It cites a report by Special Agent Swierkowski, whose first name was not included, saying Sandford told officers he drove from California to kill Trump and went to a Las Vegas gun range the day before to learn to shoot....

    An essay by an incoming UW-Madison doctoral student suggesting that violence might be the proper response to Donald Trump is drawing concern within the university’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Because apparently these days we’re a nation that is ready to nominate a buffoonish reality TV star for president and deem a “journalist” who excuses violence against that nominee as one of the “best-qualified applicants” at a world-renowned university. It all began with an essay self-described “smarmy liberal writer” Jesse Benn published on the Huffington Post earlier this month titled “Sorry liberals, a violent response to Trump is as...

    Police arrested a 19-year-old man Saturday inside a Las Vegas theater where presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was holding a campaign rally after the man attempted to pull a police officer's gun from its holster during the event. Police said Michael Sandford struck up a conversation with a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer under the pretenses that he was seeking to get an autograph. During the conversation, police said Sandford tried to pull the officer's service weapon from its holster. Other officers also assigned to provide security at the event were quickly able to detain Sandford and authorities said...

    The organization is making lobbying for gun control a top priority. The AMA, the country's largest doctor group, also vowed to lobby Congress to overturn a decades-old ban on gun violence research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "With approximately 30,000 men, women and children dying each year at the barrel of a gun in elementary schools, movie theaters, workplaces, houses of worship and on live television, the United States faces a public health crisis of gun violence," AMA president Dr. Steven Stack said in a statement.

    A flyer circulated before Donald Trump’s Friday rally in Richmond, Virginia, called for violence and declared “passive resistance … has no effect on heartless racists.” Under a headline of “Self-Defense,” the flyer reads: We fully support your right to self-defense, we do not expect you to take a beating by Trump goons in order to “look good.” Your safety is important, protect yourself. Fascism wants us to peacefully resist while it steamrolls us. We take our inspiration from the workers of Spain who rose up by the millions to fight fascism when it came to their country.

    The message of the San Jose violence is that you don't have a right to go support the candidate you want as you had in the past. No more corny political rallies, no more cutesy red-white-and-blue satin basketball outfits with pom-poms to cheer your candidate, they are off limits without bullet-proof vests and bodyguards. If you ignore this new reality, you will be beaten to a pulp by righteous mobs brandishing foreign flags. You don't have that right anymore. Politics is now a maelstrom of baying mobs with burning tires, shattered bottles, eggs hurled, shot-out tires, smashed in windshields, rocks...

    We're all familiar with the anti-Trump forces protesting at Donald Trump's events. Actually, it's not so much about protesting, as much as it is about inciting a riot. Such events have been well covered by the press which have shown scenes of demonstrators in California waving Mexican flags and burning American flags. Recently, a young woman, who was a Trump supporter, tried to talk to the demonstrators and was attacked for wearing a Trump shirt. Some of the demonstrators are from liberal organizations bent on defeating Donald Trump in the November election. Not surprising, their tactics are well choreographed. The...

    RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is coming to the Richmond Coliseum Friday. Local Democratic party leaders are looking to get out ahead of the planned protests. The message is simple: No one needs to go to jail. "He has a right to come here," said Richmond Democratic Committee Chair James "JJ" Minor. "But he isn't welcome here." Protesters shouting "Black Lives Matter" were physically removed during Trump's last Rally at the Richmond International Raceway.

Harmeet Dhillon, who is a Trump backer and an attorney in San Jose, said she is in favor of a group called Silicon Valley Vet, who is asking San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo how the Thursday rally got so out of hand. Trump's critics were seen as the main antagonists of the raucous behavior, which included egging, bruising and punches.

    After Clinton and Sanders supporters rioted at his San Jose rally, Hillary Clinton, the mayor and the media all blamed Trump. Why? The same reason rape victims are to blame for their rapes. Riots and physical violence have become synonymous with Donald Trump’s rallies, even expected. But the violence has escalated to physical attacks on Trump supporters as they arrive or attempt to leave. In Chicago in March, the Trump campaign canceled a rally at the University of Illinois due to “growing safety concerns.” Later in March, protestors blocked roads to a Trump rally near Phoenix. There were larger-scale protests...

    From Chicago to Albuquerque to San Diego, and now last week’s obscene riot in San Jose, California, Americans and the world saw supporters of the liberal agenda violently target Trump supporters, peacefully trying to attend a rally, as though they were prey. Make no mistake — these supposed anti-Trump riots are not organic nor are they natural; they are the result of leftist organizing using paid stooges. Fox News reported in March a Craigslist ad posted by Bernie Sanders supporters offering $15 an hour to protest at a Trump rally in Wisconsin. They would also provide shuttle bus transport, parking...

Our racism, nativism, xenophobia, misogyny, Islamophobia, ableism, and propensity toward authoritarianism have been laid bare. Reactions from those who stand opposed to these manifestations of oppression have varied from calm condemnation and routine peaceful protests, to blockades of roads and borderline riotous outbursts, including sporadic violence in various cities. This isn’t a coincidence. There are so many examples of Trump inciting violence the New York Times put together this video documenting some of them. A powerful video juxtaposing his longing for the violence against protestors from...

He added that if anyone was considering becoming violent, "please do not tell anybody you are a Bernie Sanders supporter, because those are not the supporters that I want." Of course, he couldn't help but also bash Trump, adding that he found the New York business mogul's positions "reprehensible and disgraceful," before launching into a lengthy diatribe about Trump's insults toward women and minorities. Still, Sanders told his audience that defeating Trump would not...

SJPD initially limited its release of information regarding the violent clashes to noting an officer was assaulted and a “few” people were arrested. Liccardo commended police in his original statement, but seemed to have it both ways in blaming Trump and the people who participated in assaults taking place in the streets following the rally. In an email blast Friday morning, Liccardo came...

His estranged wife and her friend, Leslie Bradshaw, had just pulled up to drop off the Waldroups’ four children. Waldroup began arguing with his wife and Bradshaw, who was unloading the car. Drawing his gun, Waldroup shot Bradshaw eight times, killing her. He used a knife to cut her head open. He then chased his wife with the knife and a machete, managing to slice...

    After an anti-Trump protest in San Jose descended into mob violence last week, Emmett Rensin, one of Vox’s crypto-Marxist editors, suggested people should indeed stage riots if Donald Trump comes to their town. “All violence against human lives and bodies is categorically immoral,” he wrote. “Property destruction is vastly more negotiable.” To Ezra Klein’s credit, Rensin was promptly suspended from his position at Vox. One imagines Rensin might feel differently about property violence if the property in question were his own, but presumably he’s hoping it won’t come to that. Maybe his building’s doorman will be able to turn the...

The campaign trail protest is a bullseye tactic for the progressives to draw public attention. Political progressive masterminds know for a fact that the mainstream news media will post pictures of the innocents bloodied by the rent-a-mobs, and hopefully frighten people off from attending Donald Trump rallies.

    Update: Joan Walsh response to this blog post is featured below. Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the...

    Liberal activists have created a tense and violent-prone environment outside rallies for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for weeks. That potential for violence came to a head in New Mexico yesterday when a disabled Trump supporter attending a rally in a wheelchair became the subject of a violent assault. As the Associated Press reports, Trump supporters were “taunted” by the crowd outside the Albuquerque Convention Center, but one disabled man got the brunt end of the liberals’ wrath: Some protesters even threw water bottles and water at the Trump supporters as they walked along a sidewalk leading to the...

    Many are the facts that the national media refuses to address. One such fact is that concerning the pattern of violence that’s emerged on the part of the supporters of self-declared “socialist,” Bernie Sanders. In addition to the fact that they conflict wildly with those held, traditionally, by Americans generally, socialists hold moral beliefs that demand the deployment of the overt coercion of others of those who don’t share those values.

    The Democratic warhorse Dianne Feinstein is warning that Bernie Sanders’ campaign against Hillary Clinton could turn the party’s convention in Philadelphia into the kind of disaster that erupted in Chicago in 1968. “It worries me a great deal,” she tells CNN. I can understand why. I was there. Covering the Democrats’ 1968 convention for one of America’s greatest newspapers, the Anniston (Ala.) Star, I saw a bitterly divided party, riven by the Vietnam War and Jim Crow, met with violence in the streets. The convention finally handed up, in Vice President Hubert Humphrey, one of the finest liberals in history....

    Any way you slice it, the Democratic National Convention coming up in Philadelphia in late July promise to be tumultuous.Though Hillary Clinton and the party insiders long ago expected the 2016 primary to be a formality (which conspicuously few hopefuls in the race), the grassroots voters are feverishly demanding Bernie, and vehemently against the establishment candidate who is widely known for her duplicity and dishonesty.As California Senator Diane Feinstein makes clear in this short and sweet video below, the establishment fears the riots and backlash that could come from a contested, or at least highly protested, convention as Sen. Sanders...

    Why Sanders is lying when he says he doesn’t approve of violence perpetrated on his behalf. The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with “fairness and respect.” The pro-violence radicalism among Sanders supporters comes straight from the top
