Love him or hate him, the phenomenon of the Donald Trump candidacy has swept across the nation like wildfire during this election season.
In the early stages of the campaign many liberals may not have taken the New York billionaire’s White House bid seriously, shrugging it off as a publicity stunt or a lark by the flamboyant real estate mogul.
It’s safe to say that “The Donald” has their full and undivided attention now.
With an impressive string of state primary victories, an unprecedented outpouring of support from dissatisfied American voters, and an ever dwindling field of competitors Trump is well on his way to acquiring the delegates needed to secure the nomination.
Some leftist groups including the George Soros-funded MoveOn.Org, Black Lives Matter, La Raza, and other immigrant organizations are not happy about the possibility of a Trump presidency and are voicing their anger in protest at Trump rallies across the country.
The Daily Caller ran an in depth story exposing groups behind the protest. As you might expect from such a group of militant left wing radicals, the protest have recently become violent.
Reports are coming to light that they are being organized and sanctioned by the hierarchy of the progressive left’s political machine.
The situation intensified on March 11th at the University of Illinois in Chicago as twenty-five thousand Trump supporters gathered to attend his rally.
Chaos erupted inside and out when protesters clashed with supporters. To defuse the situation, Trump cancelled the event in the interest of public safety.
Last week the Conservative Tribune ran a story in which conservative pundit Ann Coulter made allegations that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel ordered a diminished police presence at the upcoming rally despite the elevated threat of protester violence.
In addition to cutting back on law enforcement manpower, Coulter also revealed that her sources inside the Chicago Police Department told her that the mayor ordered police to make no arrest at the Trump rally.
Syndicated radio host John Cardillo reported that embattled Chicago mayor and former Obama administration chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel ordered police manpower cut for the rally even though it was expected to turn violent.
Cardillo tweets, “Ranking Chicago PD source just told me that Rahm’s office “suggested” CPD cut manpower for #Trump rally despite protest threat.”
Conservative pundit Ann Coulter also reported that her sources told her the Chicago Police Department let Trump know that things were about to get out of hand, thanks to their boss.
Conservative Tribune’s article also included a tweet of a photo from @OlaffJenkins, “Found at Trump rally” a printed copy of instructions for anti-Trump protesters outlining who they are, what they stand for, and directing them to take actions consistent with their conscience when it came to violence.
The current Chicago mayor has deep ties to the Obama administration where he occupied the position of Chief of Staff and will be forever remembered for his controversial statement, “You never want to let a serious crisis go to waste,” in the aftermath of a tragic shooting.
Rahm Emmanuel is a dangerous left wing operative in the same class as Pelosi, Reid, and DeBlasio. His Chicago-style thuggery in the political realm is well known, as is his willingness to employ unscrupulous tactics to quell opposing voices. That appears to be what happened at the Trump rally.
