Throughout the 2016 political campaign and even after the election, we got a reminder of how the Left likes to operate: violently. Far-left thugs would try to provoke fights with Trump supporters by something they call “bird-dogging.” One Democrat operative said that he paid mentally ill homeless people or got them a room for a night in exchange for them causing trouble at a Trump event.
The definition of terrorism is: “The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”
We need to go after these criminals, who carried out these acts of terrorism against their political opponents. We need to prosecute the ring-leaders under federal racketeering laws all the way up the ladder including the chief of the DNC and Hillary herself.
A Breitbart article reports “Democrats have used trained provocateurs to instigate violence at Republican events nationwide throughout the 2016 election cycle, including at several Donald Trump rallies, using a tactic called ‘bird-dogging,’ according to a new video investigation released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.”
“The goal of ‘bird-dogging’: to create a sense of ‘anarchy’ around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value.”
The leftist thugs getting funded secretly by the Democrat party can be seen boasting about how they shut down Trump’s rally in Chicago through threats of violence. In California people were attacked at almost every Trump rally during the primary and some had to drive through a gauntlet of thugs and illegal aliens who were more than willing to vandalize their cars. Anyone, who went to a Trump rally in 2016, knew he was taking a risk and that the police might not be able to protect him. Some Trump supporters found out the police seemed to be under orders not to protect them.
A CNS article reported “This Silicon Valley city and its police department are facing mounting complaints of a tepid and tardy law enforcement response to attacks of Donald Trump supporters after a political rally.”
“Videos circulating online show physical clashes occurring in front of San Jose police officers dressed in riot gear and standing stoically in a line outside the convention center where Trump spoke. Critics also complained that assaults occurred on side streets near the venue that lacked police presence.”
What good is a line of police if the leftist thugs are sneaking around the line attacking people and the police aren’t intervening?
The article continues “‘Potentially more could have been done,’ said San Jose Councilman Pierluigi Oliverio, chairman of the council’s public safety committee.”
“The questions about the San Jose police response came while Trump launched a rally Friday afternoon in Redding, California, a politically conservative city 350 miles north of San Jose. Trump called those who attacked his supporters Thursday night a ‘bunch of thugs.'”
Not only were leftist thugs trying to disrupt Trump events and to attack people for attending these events, the police in some liberal cities were unwilling to take action at San Jose for example to arrest the thugs, who were assaulting people for their political views.
For anyone who doubts that organized terrorism by the Left happened in 2016, just take a look at this video which James O’Keefe put together with undercover operatives, who infiltrated the violent wing of the Democrat Party:
