President Barack Obama condemned violent protesters who were recorded spitting and throwing punches at supporters after a rally in San Jose and pelting them with eggs, food, and water bottles.
“We saw in San Jose these protesters starting to pelt stuff on Trump supporters,” Obama said. “That’s not what our democracy is about. That’s not what you do. There’s no room for violence. There’s no place for shouting.”
Obama made his remarks during a DNC fundraiser in Miami, Florida on Friday night, criticizing Democrats for imitating the violence under way in the Republican primary process.
“It is very important for us to remind ourselves of who we are and what is best about American democracy, and not slip into some of the bad habits that currently manifest themselves in the other party,” Obama said.
We all remember the Tea Party Riots, when mobs of racist white people looted and burned our cities, chanting “FUCK THE POLICE” and “SHOW US YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE!”
And then there was the time that Sarah Palin shot Gabby Giffords. Or how about when NRA terrorists set off bombs at the Boston Marathon? How many people died when the Koch brothers paid protesters to block freeways?
Poor Hillary Clinton can’t hold a rally without scores of Pro-Trump protesters infiltrating the event and disrupting it.
We sure don’t want the Democrats to start acting like those fascists, now do we?
