Sadly our politics have gotten more contentious and incidents like this will likely become more common, especially as Trump consolidates his support and transitions into a general election campaign against Hillary Clinton.
We have previously reported on the organized effort to violently disrupt Trump supporters and that appears to be what happened in California where the primary campaign will soon be playing out.
Anaheim, CA, Trump supporters–performing their Constitutional rights of peaceably assembling and free speech–were attacked by anti-Trump villains.
These thugs thought it right to pepper spray the Trump supporters, injuring five people, including two little girls.
Backers waving U.S. flags and pro-Trump signs were met by opponents and a shouting match began before a City Council meeting where an anti-Trump resolution had been proposed that the council eventually chose to take no action on.
At one point, an opponent unleashed a hand-held pepper-spray device on the pro-Trump crowd.
Five people, including two girls ages 8 and 11, were exposed to the eye-stinging spray, police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said. Three were treated at the scene by paramedics.
This kind of gross, violent behavior is completely unacceptable.
The fact that no arrests were made is even more upsetting. What if the people pepper-sprayed were from the Black Lives Matter movement? I’m sure the attackers would still be in jail.
Instead this kind of behavior goes unnoted.
Liberal activists, largely young people who favor socialistic policies, have been inciting violence against Trump supporters for weeks. They have planned violent rallies and confrontations at Trump meetings. They are pissy little children who, because they cannot have their own way, are resorting to violence to get attention.
We cannot allow this kind of behavior to go on. But we must not resort to the same ugly tactics. Continue to support the candidate of your choice. Make your voice heard on social media and in your community. And get out and vote.
Show these cowards what real Americans look like.
