One again we have seen a riot break out at a Trump campaign event. This time it was in San Jose. Trump supporters were beaten or egged, police were attacked and an American flag burned. Rather than blaming the rioters, Mayor Sam Liccardo put the blame on Trump saying he must “take responsibility” for the riot.
It looks like the mayor and others like him want our democracy turned into a mobocracy. In a mobocracy, people’s freedom of speech is limited. If someone says something that the mob doesn’t like, then it’s OK to riot.
I understand that a person might get a punch in the nose if they make an obscene remark about someone’s mother or sister. But nobody should be able to take a remark made months ago as an excuse to commit crimes. These thugs should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
If these idiots had half a brain, they would realize that they are funneling votes to Trump. Any Democrat with a shred of common sense ought to speak out against the rioters.
