I am sorry but together burning the American flag and waving the Mexican and chanting Viva Mexico has me troubled. Not rock n roll protests but rocks and stones and fire. I say this legitimizes Trump. He will oppose this 3rd world mentality. Clinton's people obviously support it. I question always this failure of good Muslims not to condemn acts of ISIS. Now I question Bernie and Hillary for not condemning this.

Denouncing loudly and clearly is important Ruby. I do not know about either denouncing today and yesterday. Anaheim and Albuquerque. Would they act so slow as President?
But Mr. H did Trump do more than speak which is very protected. And is not the violence really being funded by others? Give me your take which mimics my adult children.
I have to agree, it's like taking a stick and poking a hornets nest, do you really think you won't get stung? You can't incite a whole group of people and blame them for societies ills and not expect push back.
I am not sure about the States but here we have what is called the Black Bloc - they are anarchists and break windows/light cars on fire for fun, I suppose. Gotta watch out for those types of people. They are not there to protest peacefully.
The old saying "Sticks & stones will break my bones, but world will never hurt me." was trotted out to quell the anger that words often bring about. Words that may have been planned to wound, to incite a crowd, because words do wound.
Interesting. I got beaten up pretty good in protests of things back in the day. Arrested a few times. But we did not set fire to things - except those Molotovs in Paris - and we did not waive foreign flags and praise to a foreign country.
true and I don't condone burning things etc. but in protests I've been involved in, the obnoxious are the very small minority of protestors, but the ones who get all the negative media attention.
Absolutely correct. We are talking like the percentages of statistical crime outside of protests. 10 out of thousands.
Good point. I have been paid to protest - years ago.
Wafa Sultan - the peaceful majority is irrelevant.
Except Hillary is also a horrible candidate - it's like voting for arsenic or strychnine. Who wants to vote for that? Lesser of two evils constantly and both parties are corrupt. We really need more than two parties.
The US is lucky, Australia is not even legal to have more then two candidates :(
You are right, Peter. Trump is not going to drop out of this race. These people are wasting their time. Just vote in November, it's the only way to stop him.
How did they do in San Diego. Professional foresight. Active prevention. Designated areas for free speech. Some drunks. Let the people be people and remember law enforcement deserves respect.
