Althouse: Anti-Trump protesters surround one woman and throw eggs at her head and watermelon straight into her face.
"From the Buzzed report (which has more video, including the burning of an American flag):
In at least two instances Trump supporters engaged with protesters, chanting “Donald Trump” and walking directly into the thickest, most angry portions of the protests. But things quickly spiraled, and rallygoers simply trying to get back to their cars were chased down and beaten — often at the feet of San Jose Police, who stood by motionless....
A police source told BuzzFeed News that officers were under orders to not break ranks, and that while “nobody wants to see somebody beaten… we had a global plan.” The source added that the department did not want officers to step in for several reasons, notably out of fear for individual officers’ safety, as well as concerns that breaking up a fight may end up escalating the violence....
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, a Clinton supporter, praised the police... “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign”....
Incredible. Liccardo isn't some small-town naif. This is San Jose, and Liccardo is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government."
Of course the police stood by while the thugs beat people, of course the Mayor praised the police who stood by and smeared Trump with responsibility, they are protecting their own. The protestors are part of the progressive movement, the Mayor Riccardo, and his police are part and parcel of this movement. The police are the professional brownshirts, the "protestors" are the informal brownshirts, and the politicians are the controllers.
San Jose is deepest, bluest progressive America. Trump cannot simply waltz into San Jose without paying a price.
Just listen to this attacked and bloodied Trump supporter. This young man was walking down the sidewalk, and a thug, from behind, hits him in the head with something heavy in a bag.
If this does not establish the state of the Union under Obama, nothing does.
