Full Title: Leftist Starts Petition Drive to Ban President Trump Campaign Rallies After Send Her Back Controversy
A leftist activist has initiated a petition at Change.org calling on public and private venues to ban President Trump from holding campaign rallies in the wake of the send her back crowd chants targeting Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at Trumps Greenville, North Carolina rally Wednesday night. The initial target of the ban is Trumps August first rally set for U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Igor Volsky, Executive Director of Guns Down America and a former Vice President of the Center for American Progress, announced the petition on Twitter, saying, In light of the racist #SendHerBack chants at Trumps rally on Wednesday, Ive started a petition urging @AEGworldwide, which owns
@USBankArena, to cancel Trumps upcoming racist campaign rally on Aug. 1.

Text of the petition:
On August 1st, Donald Trump is scheduled to host a campaign rally at the U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The event will take place less than a month after Trump presided over a North Carolina crowd chanting Send her back! Send her back! about an American Muslim congresswoman he targeted with racist attacks.
Given Donald Trumps penchant for stirring up unrestrained demagoguery and racist hate-filled chants against women, minorities, and immigrants at his campaign rallies, we are asking AEG Worldwide, which owns the U.S. Bank Arena, to cancel the event and refuse to rent its space to the Trump campaign.
Does AEG Worldwide and U.S. Bank which has naming rights to the space really want to be associated with such hatred and racism?
All colleges, universities, corporate branded arenas or other private or public venues should refuse to rent their arenas for Trumps racist campaign rallies.
The petition has about 2,000 signatures as of Friday morning.
Maybe this should be a petition at Whitehouse.gov, LOL.
No more freedom of assembly for the President.
How about passing a law to cut his hands off?
Chief “Justice” Roberts would uphold it.
Igor Volsky appears to be unfamiliar with the US Constitution.
Cant be dissing the guy
The rallies are an effective tool for Tri=ump.
They are attempting to blunt that.
Liberals only want to ban stuff and to do things with their bodies that were never intended by the Creator.
Why doesn’t the Left contact their congressfeces and urge passage of a bill to legalize dueling, if they REALLY want to solve the issue of other people’s free speech?

Should proofread in preview
Another Leftist Democrat against the First Amendment.
Accidentally hit post on #5.
So then ,
It’s ok for everyone to say the most vile things about Trump, including calling him a mother fletcher, and that’s ok.........
But a political rally involving Trump is not worthy of freedom of speech????
We are living in Orwell’s 1984
Why don't ya go back where ya came from?
I kinda liked that...I saw it as Tri ump h...TRIUMPH
I love how much they hate the rallies.
Okey, dokey. If they ban one political rally then ban them all. No more campaigning for the demonrats, either.
Can’t win the generalelection without disenfranchisimg those who might vote Republican.
Clawing and scratching at a Teflon surface, trying to get some small opening from which to “Finally gonna get Trump NOW!”
“Send her back!” sounds like a pretty good sentiment to apply to Congresscritter Ihlan Omar, as she has NEVER assimilated, and is something of a loose cannon, but in fact, simply keeping her in place does more for the Team Trump cause than any effort to deport her ever could.
But somebody should check into any discrepancies in either her application to come to this country, or her activities in getting others here through a “chain migration” scheme. Not 100% on the up and up, there are criminal penalties that may apply.
Let her know she is in DEEP doo-doo.
If it’s Socialist campaign rallies, count me in for the ban.
