There continues to be a lot of chaos brewing between the respective political masses when it comes to the 2016 election. Donald Trump in particular has been the vocal point of much of the chaos, as he is the central polarizing picture that is being painted. On one end, you have the Soros-backed anti-Trump protesters disrupting Donald Trump events, while chanting Bernie Sanders. On the other, you have Trump encouraging fighting words against different agitators at his rallies. It’s a complex web of right and wrongs on both sides.
Just a week after the Chicago rally cancellation due to chaotic tensions, there were two more incidents over the weekend to further ignite the flames. This all comes on the heels of a similar exchange in Utah during the week of protesters trying to break into a Trump rally.
In Phoenix, AZ, protesters blocked a major road, which was a prime route into the city of Fountain Hills where Donald Trump was holding a rally. About a dozen of them parked their cars in the middle of the road and stood shoulder to shoulder for hours, holding signs like “Dump Trump” and “Must Stop Trump,” while chanting “Trump is hate.” Traffic was backed up for miles and many people trying to make their way into the city were quite clearly upset. This went on for hours, before the police showed up and made some arrests, along with towing the vehicles.
The Trump camp is arguing free speech, with Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham issuing this statement in the wake of the protest:
“These protesters are denying our First Amendment rights by physically preventing innocent people from attending a rally held by a candidate for public office. I won’t stand for it nor should anyone in America. This is an outrageous display, and it’s deeply offensive to me as a voter and as a party leader to see these tactics here in Arizona. We trust our voters and we trust law enforcement and our judicial system to ensure no voter is intimidated or blocked or suppressed or prevented in any way from exercising his rights to vote and to enjoy free speech.”
That wasn’t the only incident of the day either, as there was a gathering of around a thousand anti-Trump protesters in downtown Manhattan, who marched around the city to all the skyscrapers that bear his name. There was a heavy police presence for a mostly peaceful rally. At least two arrests were made, while several were sprayed with pepper spray in order to keep from blocking the streets. These were again, largely made up of immigrant activists, students, and socialists, who claim that trump is fascist and racist, further dividing the country.
What is starting to become clear, is that division and chaos is really ramping up. Bernie Sanders supporters and Trump supporters are starting to clash more and more as they have fundamentally different campaigns and tones. Most important to take into account is the fact that George Soros has massive money behind these anti-Trump protests, while Trump is a billionaire reality-TV star. There is a very real possibility this division is being manufactured and we are all being played as pawns; constantly fighting each other without getting to the root cause of the problems. The puppet master behind the scenes will never be taken out if we continue to fight each other.
This is just the beginning, so stay aware and keep your eyes open as things start to escalate. Don’t be a slave to propaganda. Have a mind of your own and use it come to your own conclusions.
