..He's "really concerned," just as most people who don't know anything about politics are. It's interesting that he mentioned violence in the streets on this, the 50th anniversary of the "Days of Rage" that blew up the Democratic convention in 1968. That convention and the violence that surrounded it defined the New Left and that generation of activists.
So could it really happen today? Those were entirely different times. America was a different country, young people were different, and the issues were a matter of life and death for many.
As much as the left tries to gin up hysteria about Trump killing people or being a threat to kill people, it's not working. As much as they try to make him out to be worse than Nixon, few outside of the rabid left believe it. There is very little chance of large-scale violence in the streets, such as what happened in Chicago 50 years ago with tens of thousands demonstrating and thousands fighting police. The passion just isn't there.
What Brennan and other anti-Trump hysterics are really saying when they tell us that Trump will cause riots is that they hope it happens.

If communists feel like dying in the streets, so be it.
He has that right but we will be cracking their heads and punching their drug colored teeth down their throats.
In the past the left tried to fund a “Recreate 68” movement to cause riots. It was not very successful, but did cause some injuries. They are trying again. I think they will fail, but patriots should keep their powder dry.
A marxist muslim shit disturber to the bitter end. I will personally build the gallows.
Um . . . and having the former CIA Director calling the current President a traitor doesn’t contribute to that?!!!
Brennan is a target. If we are going to “riot in the streets”, then let him be the first victim. (I’ll be ready for him).
Best part of 68 Dem convention when Dan Rather got decked on live TV.
You must mean, like, right now?
The Days of Rage were in 10/69 and there were hardly 10s of thousands.
The POS is not worried about violence in the streets, he is trying to suggest and provoke violence in the streets.
Obama and Brennan will probably call in ISIS.
Since he no longer has clearance I guess he gets his prognosticatons from a fortune cookie.
Most adults were rooting for the Chicago police.
Change “warns of” to “hopes for” and the headline will be more accurate than anything you will see today.
Bring it commie boy. Americans are ready for you.
There is no draft today.
That is likely the biggest single difference.
Funny, the ones I see rioting in the streets, wearing masks and attacking political opponents are Antifa - who, last I checked, do not support Trump. I think what Weasel Boy Brennan is trying to do is blame Trump for liberals hating him to the point of violence. Sorry, jackwagon, but the responsibility for political violence is squarely on the shoulders of those carrying such out.
He’s dog-whistling to antifa to start killing people.
Former CIA Director Brennan Warns of Violence in the Streets.... that he and his CIA cronies will cause.
