Looks like Phoenix police didn’t “stand down.” Well done, officers!

Wonder why CNN wasn’t INSIDE covering the event. I went on their webpage and the event in Phoenix was a non event. They show their bias, I watched a small cable company, Right Side had 40,000 viewers. Most of the remarks on the side people posted were anti CNN..

Trump needs to educate the Nation on Soros Army. Paid thugs astroturfing events, committing violence.

That’s why most news shots are from BEHIND the police and not mixed in with the leftists.

Well, beat the cr@p out of the paid thugs a few more times and positions will become much more difficult to fill.

Maybe CNN will finally tell the truth concerning the violent, anarchist, Antifa communist, fascists... waiting.... crickets. Nope the antiAmerican, leftist Communist News Network will continue to LIE because that’s what they do.

Can’t say that I didn’t see this coming given how unhinged the anti factions are.

My sentiments too. I hope residents demand mayors give the same response in the future. Charlottesville polititions and Governor have blood on their hands. It did not need to happen.

CNN? If you suck up to the terrorists, you get the same treatment they get. Tear Gas and worse.

CNN IS FAKE NEWS!

That is so right. If a percentage of the thugs end up with actual injuries, not TV injuries, this will be winnowed down to the hard core. Like that bitch who got punched last month. A few more of those but which require dental work and a hospital visit and this will slow down because these thugs are actually bullies at heart.

For my part, I’d arm my pro-Trump counterforce with rocks in the 8oz. range and let the thugs have it in one volley.

Just because every other police force in major metropolitan areas Stand Down doesn’t mean as a reporter you insert yourself into the protesting crowd on the belief that this present police department will also Stand Down. Which they didn’t, and you got a lungful. Congratulations for being a dummy.

CNN came only to cover, i.e incite violence. They had no interest in the President’s message to Americans and his warnings to the bad guys.

Locally here, it seems like it was a big non-event. The protesters numbered in the 10s of 1s. They had a few rowdies and they were shut down fast after numbnuts took one for the team. Nice work protecting the public by the Phoenix police. Glad they all made it home safe. I mean, except for numbnuts...ouch!

If you hang out with Antifa terrorists, you’re going to get rightfully tear gassed and arrested by patriotic police officers.
