Who are the Real Fascists?

The word “Fascist” (a/k/a Nazi) is being thrown around willy-nelly today in describing Donald Trump. Is destroying the candidacy of Donald Trump worth all this scathing criticism and vile denigration of his person who has professed his love and loyalty for America?

Yes, sometimes the rhetoric of Donald Trump is over the top, and some of his views are not to your liking, but he's an American and he has the right to say what he feels about America and its policies and its leaders as do all of us. By expressing his views, as is his right, should that call for others to try to shut him down by calling him a Fascist, Nazi, or a Mussolini or Hitler?

Trump holds a rally for his supporters, and in the course of giving his speech, he gets interrupted by some groups of organized radical loons who want to shut him down, thereby violating his free speech rights. Trump sometimes responds in an inarticulate manner in condemning their disrupting actions, and then the Democrats and some sore loser Republicans proclaim that Trump is the cause of these disruptions. Oh yeah ! Here's the post on Facebook by that far-left progressive organization Move On. Org that lays out in detail what they planned to do at the Trump rally in Chicago. This post tells you who is responsible for these assaults on Trumps “Free Speech”. And I quote:

“Stand with Immigrants, Muslims, and People of Color ! Shut down White Supremacy ! Spread the word, organize everyone and get them to this very important protest. Everywhere Trump goes he and his racist mob must be shut down by the people”.

In addition to Move On. Org, other radical organizations and persons who complimented them in the disruption were LaRaza, Black Lives Matter, George Soros, Bill Ayers (former Weather Underground terrorist), and other Immigrant Rights groups. So much for spontaneity on the part of the protesters.

Have you noticed that most all this chaos is coming from the left-side of the political spectrum (mostly all Democrats) and not from the right side (mostly all Republicans)? This is a continuation over the past decade or so where conservative speakers have been shouted down or have been outright barred from speaking at many of the universities around the country. This academic radicalism has spilled over to the general public and has continued up till today at the Donald Trump rallies.

Of course, everyone has a right to free speech, but everyone's free speech rights doesn't apply when they deprive others of their free speech rights. That's a phenomenon of the liberals (a/k/a Progressives and Far-left groups) who use that precious right (handed down by our founders) guaranteeing us all of free speech as enumerated in the 1st Amendment of our Constitution.

I have recently attended a Trump rally and have seen these anarchists in action, and when they started acting up to disrupt, the local police and Secret Service, acted post haste in removing them to a safe place away from the rally, without incident or violence. Most likely, this will be repeated at future events as long as these fringe groups continue to announce their intentions of creating havoc in trying to shut or shout down Trump's speeches.

These radical groups have no place in a free country like ours. These disrupters are patently anti-American and a cancer on our society. They are the real fascists and not Donald Trump and his followers.

Once again Chuck you are a voice of reason among the sea liberal hogwash that permeates our culture and the media.
It seems that those that "know" the loudest know the least! And so it goes with the Trump protesters.

Keep on keeping on Chuck...the people who agree with you don't shout and disrupt like those protesters do but we agree with you...and I know there are more of us than there are them!

Trump has freedom of speech according to 1st Amendment and he isn't to blame for other people's behavior.

At first, the Trumpster was funny. Yet now we must get serious and elect a real Conservative President. Remember that Trump said that he would have hired Obama even after everyone knew of his terrorist friends & only have a job at ACORN. Remember that Trump funded McConnell when everyone who is a legit Republican should have been fighting to "Ditch Mitch". Remember that Trump stood up for Hillary and said what a fine job she did. Remember how mad he got about a month ago and that true blue N.Y. Liberal came out of him as he screamed that Bush Lied on the WMD's. Remember just a few months ago he came out against the late great Justice Scalia. Trump was against guns and pro-refugee just a few years ago. It is our time to do the right thing.

I don't like the Bernie supporters getting violent but I don't think Trump is the answer either. Rand tried to stop him up here but your guy Rubio might have sealed the deal for Trump by staying in so long.

Trump will win and the GOP will try and push Paul Ryan on us? Hell no!

Whether you like Trump or dislike Trump, he has the right to speak without being shouted down by far-left anarchists and some holier-than-thou Republicans. He has sometimes gone over the line in response to some of his critics, but, in fairness, who has had such an onslaught on his persona as has Donald Trump? Besides the Democrats and media who fear him, he has shaken up the status quo Republicans as someone they can't control. I predict that Trump will moderate his language and act more presidential as the campaign progresses. He hasn't become a billionaire by being stupid. I'm sure he will surround himself with competent political operatives who know the ins and outs of political maneuverings and proper messaging. Look at his competition, a person, Hillary Clinton, who is so flawed that even many Democrats think that she is a liar and untrustworthy. If Trump prevails in the primary, would the Republicans stay home and let Hillary win and be able to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices? Trump, to his credit, has promised that he would appoint justices like Scalia and Thomas. That alone should be the difference of whether a conservative could or should support a Donald Trump. As Chuck said awhile back, Republicans should not grab defeat out of the jaws of victory.
