Skip to comments.Rush: The leftist attack on Trump fans in San Jose is anti-American ó and itíll backfire

Via the Daily Rushbo, right on both counts. It wasnt so much an anti-Trump riot, Limbaugh notes, as an anti-Trump-supporter riot since they are really violently protesting American citizens exercising their constitutional right to express their political opinion. Indeed. Anti-American, straight up. And the more violence there is aimed at Trump and his fans, especially by people waving Mexican flags, the more swing voters will conclude that an authoritarian whose centerpiece proposal involves a border wall might be just what the doctor ordered after all.
Hes also right that some well-known lefties were quick to denounce the riot last night on social media, including John Podesta, Hillarys campaign chairman, which Rush must have missed in the course of criticizing Team Clinton here for not speaking up about what happened. (Hillary herself reportedly called it deplorable this afternoon, although after this segment aired on Limbaughs show.) Im trying not to be cynical about motives in the quick denunciations, bearing in mind how readily some progressives reach for the MLK quote about a riot being the language of the unheard whenever an anti-police demonstration turns nasty. Many were, Im sure, honestly disgusted watching average people get sucker-punched for the crime of attending a political rally for a candidate they like. A man off the street minding his own business is the most sympathetic victim of political violence. But the backfire potential here in November has to be weighing on them heavily too. If they dont send down the word, quickly and emphatically, to left-wing activists that violence against Trump and his fans is Never Acceptable, thisll happen again repeatedly. And Trump will continue to benefit from it. So long as his own supporters dont respond in kind, of course....

Trump is exposing the Fifth Column in the US!
Yep the fifth column! I told Hubby to post those two words on Facebook!
“And Trump will continue to benefit from it. So long as his own supporters dont respond in kind, of course....”
Yes. Important that WE remain peaceful and non-violent.
Post them everywhere u can. # fifth column
Rush is beyond hope.
According to the Associated Press & the police there were "no injuries" after the Trump event in #SanJose.
San Jose PD = Cologne PD
All Trump has to do is show a few live shots of film from the hoodlums outside of his speeches, then follow it with a calmly spoken warning.
“Is this the America you want to leave for your children? Is this the New America, where all windows are barred, all fences are barbwired, all homes, all places, all people remain under never-ending survailance? Like the Soviets used to do? Vote Donald Trump and Make America Great Again!”
Daily listener and defender since the beginning. Until you blamed Trump for leftist violence, that is. What's it been, a few months? Never again. Feels good.
I am suspecting that some people may be thinking much too conventionally in an unconventional time. One would think that experienced people like Limbaugh and Podesta have this right, but...
The exercise of power, of impunity, is itself attractive to those on the other side. Everyone (well, a lot) loves a winner, and those that are seen to “win” over those they can humiliate with impunity can attract more of their own, and moreso create enthusiasm.
And, on the other side, its probably imprudent to discount the morale effect of losing the humiliation game daily on the media for the next five months.
And five months of the Mexican flag in protests means that it will look familiar.
Has Limbaugh started humping Trumps leg yet?
Hillary and her lapdog media will be quick to blame Trump.
Limbaugh is dampened if he does and dampened if he doesn’t. There are still Trumpbots that cannot be thankful for a win.
“Dampened” spell check.
Are you kidding? Limbaugh was clearly supporting Cruz, who was a corrupt insider POS and most everyone knew it. Btw, given decades of these corrupt loser lawyer politicians, how in tarnation could Trump not win?
Yes. I’ve thought that all along too.
