I remember the 1968 campaign. We had two assassinations. Terrorists like Bill Ayers rioted at the Democratic convention in Chicago. And a war dragged on halfway across the world.
@jaynordlinger Look who showed up. Bill Ayers! (I know, hard to recognize him not standing on a flag) pic.twitter.com/f6TWVWlDV0— Don Surber (@donsurber) March 12, 2016
Nixon campaigned on law and order before it was a TV show.
I turned 15 that year. I trusted everything I read in the newspapers and in news magazines. I thought the election of Richard Nixon was the worst outcome.
Of course I was wrong. I was 15. Historically speaking, Nixon was the best option. He was not a fascist who cracked heads. Instead he was a calming influence.
Beginning with Trayvon Martin, Bill Ayers protégée Barack Obama has spent the last four years fanning the flames of racial division beginning with Trayvon Martin. The Black Lives Matter protests likely are funded by a plutocrat, and are definitely organized by communists such as Ayers, and Obama protégée Van Jones. I am not saying those men are involved. I am saying people like them are.
Trump made a great call.
President Obama should denounce the Chicago shutdown and remind people This Is Not Who We Are..@realDonaldTrump: "I don't want to see people get hurt - any people, on either side" #greta #TrumpRally @FoxNewshttps://t.co/CVK58rJrn0— Greta Van Susteren (@greta) March 12, 2016
Or President 45 will and it will not be pleasant for Obama's supporters or his legacy. Think LBJ.
Democrats really fear Trump. They know he heads a true populist movement. He is growing a huge following, which threatens the system of billionaires buying off millionaire politicians. This is not about party labels or liberalism and conservatism. This is about preserving those do-nothing jobs and influence in Washington. The Establishment fired a warning shot on Friday.
Chris Matthews on MSNBC told Trump white boys have a lot of nerve by going to Chicago after dark.
MATTHEWS: When you set up rally in Chicago where it's mostly Hispanic and blacks, you knew there would be a lot of people that have the time to come out and protest your situation. It was no surprise here, was there in what happened? Given the venue of your event,
TRUMP: It shouldn't matter. You're the first one to say it. It shouldn't matter whether it was whoever lives in the city. It shouldn't make a difference. Whether it's white, black, Hispanic, it shouldn't matter.
MATTHEWS: They don't like what you're saying. They don't like what you're saying.
TRUMP: We shouldn't be restricted from having rally here because of ethnic make up or anything like that. I'm somebody that feels strongly it shouldn't make any difference. You usually feel that too. I'm surprised you're bringing this up because it shouldn't matter,
We live in a nation of our making.
Why did we make it one where white conservatives cannot rally in Chicago on a Friday night?
Friday night's successful shutting down of Trump's rally in Chicago is a turning point.. I do not know which direction we turn. I hope for the best.
Candidates you like get to carry out their rallies. Candidates you don't like get to do the same. This was once understood in America. Yes?— Jay Nordlinger (@jaynordlinger) March 12, 2016
And then there was this:
Donald Trump says to punch protestors. Barack Obama said to take guns to knife fights and get in their faces. Tonight those worlds collided.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) March 12, 2016
