How Rioting Idiots Will Get Trump Elected, Pt. 2

From the LA Times, we read:

Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.

Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car.

One Costa Mesa police officer was struck in the head by a rock thrown by a protestor, authorities said. The officer wasn’t injured because he was protected from by his riot helmet.

About five police cars were damaged in total, police said, adding that some will require thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs.

“Dump the Trump,” one sign read. Another protester scrawled anti-Trump messages on Costa Mesa police cars.

“I’m protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest,” said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly Latinos in their late teens and 20s.

“I knew this was going to happen,” Lujan added. “It was going to be a riot. He deserves what he gets.”

Ah, I see. So, because Trump and his supporters held a peaceful, lawful rally, they deserve to be the victims of political violence from leftist thugs.

This is no surprise. The root of all leftism is violence. “Using government agents with guns, we will force those bastards to (pay for our free goodies / adhere to arbitrary racial or gender quotas / celebrate sexual lunacy / buy products from “green” corporations / shut up and not question our motives.)”

So, why wouldn’t the anti-Trump rioters resort to violence? It’s the magic bullet for the rest of their political “solutions”. It’s only natural.

I am not a fan of Trump’s policies. Fun fact: I will probably be writing in “None of the Above” as my vote, which I am serious about. But I am a fan of what Trump does to the Left, and to American neoconservatives for that matter. Trump drives these people completely batty, which I heartily approve of. So I can at least enjoy the show.

GETTING TRUMP ELECTED

A few weeks ago, I wrote about wacky anti-Trump shenanigans in Phoenix, AZ. I said at the time that wacky leftist thugs who riot and get in everyone’s way would give votes to Trump. Lo and behold, his numbers rose. A percentage of voters specifically stated that anti-Trump violence was encouraging them to vote for Trump.

Apparently, none of these boneheads read the news reports. Their antics are encouraging law-abiding voters who hate violent jerks to vote for who appears as the calm and safer alternative – in this case, Donald Trump.

Case in point: Today in San Francisco at a GOP rally, anti-Trump idiots decided to blockade the progress of his motorcade, blocking him in the streets. How did Trump respond? He got out of his car, coolly climbed over a highway barrier, and walked in to the convention.

To violent leftist thugs, this looks like Trump got burned.. or “Berned”, as it were. To everyone else who is not a violent leftist thug, meaning 90% of the rest of the country, Trump looks relatively mild-mannered and collected. “Block my car? Works for me. I’ll walk the rest of the way. Thanks for the memories, suckers.”

What was Trump’s take on the silliness? He said “It was fun.”

These rioting idiots may think they’re sticking it to Trump somehow. They’re sticking something to him, all right: the appearance of safety and respectability. Their actions are creating a dialectic between themselves and Donald Trump. Within the context of the situation, you have idiots on one side burning American flags, throwing rocks, vandalizing private property, and assaulting police officers. On the other side, you have Donald Trump calmly walking into a rally and brushing off the violent thugs with ease: “It was fun.” I cannot imagine a better way to make Donald Trump look good.

I have said before that I think the next elected President is going to get hosed by a major recession, which I still believe. So it’s possible that some of the militants actually understand this and are trying to get Trump elected so that his popularity can bomb when we get hit by the downturn, at which time they can try to usher in a leftist savior for 2020. But I sincerely doubt they are thinking this far ahead. I doubt any of the violent thugs protesting at Trump rallies are this intelligent. It is more likely that they actually think they’re damaging his prestige, somehow.

CONCLUSION

These rioters are stupid, stupid, stupid. They are wasting their time. If they really believed in trying to build some kind of benevolent society via political action, they would organize at the grassroots level and get involved en masse with local politics. They won’t do this. It is easier to destroy than to build. Destruction requires no thoughtfulness or complexity. Just smash and yell.

I still think that Hillary Clinton will be our next President. But if the anti-Trump rioters decide to start getting really violent on a massive scale, this will lend a lot of support to Trump. If Hillary really wants to take no chances with Trump, she should start denouncing the anti-Trump violence now.
