Trump: I Donít Want My Supporters Confronting Protesters
Breitbart ^ | 09.01.2020 | IAN HANCHETT

Posted on 09/01/2020 3:24:21 AM PDT by USA Conservative

During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” President Donald Trump stated that he does not want his supporters to confront left-wing protesters and that such matters should be left to law enforcement. Trump also stated that his supporters are good people who “can’t believe” the violence they see in some American cities.

Host Laura Ingraham asked, [relevant exchange begins around 5:00] “[D]o you want your supporters to confront the left-wing protesters, or do you want to leave it to law enforcement?”

Trump responded, “No. No, I don’t want them. I want to leave it to law enforcement. But my supporters are wonderful, hard-working, tremendous people. And they turn on their television set, and they look at a Portland, or they look at a Kenosha, before I got involved and stopped it, or they look at Chicago, where 78 people were shot last weekend and numerous people died, or they look at New York, where violence is up by like, what? 150%. … They’re looking at all of this, and they can’t believe it.”

He added, “It’s a peaceful protest. I mean, they were protesting. They weren’t — you know, it’s amazing, they want to protest, and they get criticized.”

Exactly what I have been saying. DO NOT ENGAGE. The enemy wants an armed conflict so they can carry out a false flag operation and blame it on Trump and hs supporters.

Automatic weapons, bombs, trucks running over people? Who knows?

But you cannot put anything past the evil of the radical communists.-This isn’t just the most important election in the history of the US—it is the most important election in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD. We cannot be suckered into a trap and blow it.

Trump cares about Americans, so he doesn’t want them hurt. The Socialist Democrats, liberals, marxists, etc..... not so much.

Folks need to realize Antifa/BLM/Marxist/Communists were slaughtering raccoons, and they seemed to get a rush from killing animals.
The thugs no longer are satisfied disrupting people’s lives and looting stores of everything.

Antifa/BLM/Marxist/Communists have formed hunter/killer squads and killed a person last Saturday in Portland.

The deceased may have expected a fist fight and an exchange of mace, but not an ISIS type of attack

Leave it for the cops when they are ordered to “stand down”?

Too much fantasy for me...

TRUTH.

Folks are revulsed by the Biden/Kamala supporters

If the Marxists/Communist steal the election, then release the Kraken to defend yourself

30 Aug: NY Post: Man who pulled gun at Florida BLM rally freed after video reveals assault
By Lee Brown
A man was filmed pulling a handgun on Black Lives Matter protesters at a rally in Florida — then freed without charges after other footage showed him being punched and knocked to the ground, cops said.

Initial footage from Saturday’s rally in Tallahassee showed an apparent counter-protester being confronted — then brandishing a handgun, forcing one man to drop to his knees with his hands up in surrender.
But police — who pounced on him within seconds — later released other clips that showed he had pulled the gun after he’d been punched to the ground and jumped on by at least half a dozen protesters.

That initial attack was missing from the initial protester’s clip — with the woman filming it suddenly cutting to a close-up of her face as she screamed, “He has a gun!” when he was being mobbed...

Exactly right.

That is law enforcement’s job.

His press conference yesterday was a sight to behold.

Perfect in every way possible.

Well, in this case, law enforcement didn’t do anything while the man was beaten, they just jumped in when he pulled a gun.

Reminds me of the scene in ROAD HOUSE where Dalton tells the bouncer to be nice to the customers...until it is time to stop being nice.

For now we are better off letting the left deal with the monster they created.

Yeah let’s wait till we see the whites of their eyes. This election has to be won with overwhelming effect. The Rats are already seeing the polls are against them. Let the Frankenstein mob they created continue to wreak havoc. I’m sure that after the election Trump will take the gloves off. If he loses,God forbid,then it’s up to us to open up a can of whip ass.

The President wants Law and Order. The Democrats want chaos. He doesn’t want his supporters shooting it out in the streets with these people, drawing murder charges that they may or may not beat in court. Government has a few legitimate roles. Stopping rioting in the streets and maintaining order are a couple of them. The Democrats thought that riots would help them. They were wrong.

The protesters want the Trump supporters dragged into fights. President Trump is right to warn supporters.

“[D]o you want your supporters to confront the left-wing protesters, or do you want to leave it to law enforcement?”

Trump responded, “No. No, I don’t want them. I want to leave it to law enforcement.”

According to the MSM, that statement is clear proof that Trump is inciting violence.

Another method that Trump uses to incite violence is to call for the violence to be stopped. Any pro-active measure by the police to stop the peaceful looting and murder causes violence.

Right about now, The President needs to stand up and say:

"Alright, enough is enough...I warned you people if you don't end it, I will. As of tonight, I'm sending in federal agents and NG troops to the democrat riot zones to put down this democRAT terrorism."

And then follow through by rounding up and evaluating thousands of agitators, putting the released criminals back in prison, and charging any out of state rioters with federal crimes.

At the same time, he should round up any complicit RAT local officials and charge them with insurrection and immigration violations...off to GITMO to await trial.

Trump will win in a surprising landslide because of those three words: LAW AND ORDER.
