Hillary Won’t Admit Own Role In Inciting Campaign Violence
POLIZETTE — The mob that “protested” outside of a Donald Trump rally in San Jose, California, Thursday night ostensibly was demonstrating against the Republican presumptive nominee. But a strong case can be made that the mob’s target was far broader than that — America.
As about 300 people demonstrated, some yelled slurs, threw objects at people leaving the San Jose Convention Center, and pounded on cars. A large group surrounded one woman and pelted her with eggs and watermelon, according to accounts in local media. Other people followed Trump supporters right to their cars.
“It was unbelievable,” Trump supporter Steve Tong told NBC4 of Los Angeles, adding that he saw protesters surround and taunt an elderly couple. “I’ve never seen anything like that in America before.”
Many of the protesters were Hispanic, and some waved Mexican flags and snatched and burned “Make America Great Again” hats from Trump supporters.
“They are not buying into the American assimilation,” LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham said on “The Laura Ingraham Program” Friday.
This is nothing new, of course. Angry, sometimes violent protesters have dogged Trump at rallies across the country, including at recent appearances in San Diego, California, and in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Some observers questioned the seemingly slow police response to the mob. When officers finally did move it, they made a few arrests and one cop was assaulted.
