But they're not entirely stupid:
Democrats and Hispanic activists said Friday that they are increasingly alarmed by a spate of violence at Donald Trump rallies instigated by anti-Trump protesters, fearing that the incidents — widely viewed on television and social media — will only help the GOP candidate and undermine their attempts to defeat him.
Well, duh. It's almost as though the Leftist loons are doing everything they can to ensure that Trump wins. Certainly, we don't see this kind of thuggery at Clinton or Sanders rallies; Republicans aren't showing up at those and slugging people, throwing eggs, stomping on cars, vandalizing police cars, spitting on cops, and so on - that's pure Leftist ideology and tactics.
Naturally, Democratics are now trying to distance themselves from all of that: "Nope, it's not us". Well, folks, conservatives - and even RINOs - don't engage in that sort of behavior; it's pure Left, through and through. And what's the party of the Left? Not Republican, that's for sure; which leaves the Democratics.
The images have been jarring: In April, in Costa Mesa, Calif., police clad in riot gear corralled protesters who vandalized police vehicles and harangued Trump supporters as they left a campaign event. The next day, in the Bay Area, protesters threw eggs and spat on police officers who formed a protective barricade around a venue where Trump was scheduled to speak.
The protests regularly feature oversize Mexican flags, presumably to protest the real estate mogul’s anti-immigrant rhetoric.
One little correction here, regarding The Washington Post's characterization of "anti-immigrant rhetoric": there may be some people here and there who are "anti-immigrant", but most sane people oppose only illegal aliens. People who feel that the laws and rules don't apply to them, skip the established process, and come in here without medical screening have no business in our country.
And that's a big difference.
