I’m sticking this prior post with updates to the top of the page because many people are missing the scope of the leftist panic to the sunlight provided by the San Jose fiasco:
You know the phones in DC are burning up with panicked leftists when ABC actually broadcasts this news segment on Good Morning America.
How panicked are the professional left? VERY.
They, and “they” includes DOJ-CRS Head Grande Lum, are just beginning to understand how much more politically effective Donald Trump is as their adversary. Trump is using their own strategies against them. They do not have a playbook to defend against sunlight on their own behavior.
Update: ♦ The San Jose Police Chief has admitted to allowing the Trump supporters to be attacked. Chief Garcia is now trying to justify his decision. Read the comments section HERE to see the scope of the backlash in CA.
♦ President Obama is now quickly trying to distance his political supporters from their violence and requesting they stop: “We saw in San Jose these protesters starting to pelt stuff on Trump supporters. That’s not what our democracy is about. That’s not what you do. There’s no room for violence” (LINK)
♦ A California CBS Broadcaster Issues a public apology – SEE HERE
♦ The Democrat San Jose Mayor was summoned to Washington DC because his plan to allow Trump supporters to be attacked has backfired on the Democrat Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. The professional left realizes how they are being exposed. They understand the risk. They are panicked…
SAN JOSE –Police Eddie Garcia acknowledged his department did not have enough officers to control the violence at Thursday night’s Donald Trump rally in downtown.
There was a little more than 250 police officers, many in riot gear, in and around the convention center, including from neighboring cities such as Campbell, Palo Alto, Milpitas and Gilroy, and also the CHP. “Obviously in hindsight it wasn’t enough,” Garcia said at a Friday afternoon news conference at police headquarters.
[…] Meanwhile Mayor Sam Liccardo was drawing fire from across the nation for his praise of the department and early comments criticizing the Trump campaign and calling for him to take responsibility for violence at his rallies.
“San Jose police officers performed admirably and professionally to contain acts of violence and protect individuals’ rights to assemble, protest and express their political views,” Liccardo said in a written statement. “While it’s a sad statement about our political discourse that Mr. Trump has focused on stirring antagonism instead of offering real solutions to our nation’s challenges, there is absolutely no place for violence against people who are simply exercising their rights to participate in the political process.” (read more)
Do not underestimate candidate Donald Trump, he’s watched the political left and the political media for decades, he knows exactly what he’s doing.
