    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.

    "Dump the Trump," said one sign. Another protester scrawled anti-Trump messages onto Costa Mesa police cruisers.

    "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."

    It's a safe bet the protesters were imported from LA County.

    Are you for free speech? So there are NO GO areas for Presidential rallys? Rallys that are inviting people at a specific venue. Not pop up protests without permits. These venues are getting Secret Service protection. It is a federal crime to disrupt Secret Service protection.

    It seems the left is dropping the "free speech" plank of their core beliefs.

    The protestors are not using words, they are throwing eggs, tomatoes and rioting. Breaking down barricades and trashing police cars is rioting.

    And I would add the protestors are not spontaneous random events. They are organized and show up in masks to further there illegal activities.

    You are letting loose with your emoticons what I have always witness among the liberal left. There idea of freedom is conditional. Freedom apparently is bestowed on the groups of people who they "dont hate". Otherwise violence , riots, felony , manslaughter seems ok.

    And Donald Trump himself threatened America with riots if he wasn't the Republican Presidential nominee. And the Teabaggers from their (corporate) inception have publicly threatened armed revolution and overthrow of the government if their political goals aren't met. Are those acceptable actions to you?

    These people in California are the real citizens fighting back against the real thugs plotting to steal their Constitutional Rights. It's about time they rebelled against the attempted takeover of our democracy by Fascist corporations. To impose unAmerican principles on us, as Trump would do.

    I cant recall one Obama rally, or any other rally were so called "tea party" activists destroyed police cars, broke down barricades etc.

    There was the fake "spitting" incident at the US capital. But that was debunked.

    Always with the disinformation, eh Artless? To the extent that Trump or your feared bugaboo the Tea Party ever "threatened" anybody, those "threats" never ripened into the riots that the left has started, and is intent on continuing, at many GOP rallies. Contrast that with those TP rallies that go on w/o being "peacefully protested," where the TPers consistently leave their assembly grounds in better shape than when they arrived at them.

    As for what's happening in CA, you're wrong on several counts, starting with your claim that these people are "the real citizens;" many of them are illegal aliens, the proper legal term for someone who sneaks into the US or stays here without authorization. The rest of your post is just more recycled '60s rhetoric. As Joan Baez told Bob Dylan, "The '60s are over so set us free." (Diamonds & Rust)

    I wonder if Trump knows about the laser wall between India and Pakistan?

    India’s move to install laser fences is the latest installment in a string of similar efforts around the globe, aimed at preserving national sovereignty and security.

    Spurred on by Europe’s migrant crisis, walls and fences have been erected in a number of countries in an effort to seal porous borders and better control the flow of migrants.

    Do you even know WHY Trump was in San Francisco? He wasn't having a rally there. He was invited to speak at the California GOP Convention, which is something he needed to do. Secondly, these protests have proven to be something that only help Trump get stronger.

    As for Trump being safe in Los Angeles, of course he'll be safe. He has secret service protection , plus his own security detail. Trump is the most protected political candidate in history due to the death threats --- even more than Obama got in 2008.

    He merely said there may be riots if the convention was thought to rigged. That is not really a threat.

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised if his team weren't laying on some of these protesters, so that he can play the big brave man that he isn't. We know how brave the draft-dodging Donald really is. After he shat his pants airside in Dayton, he tried to make it look like he'd survived an ISIS attack.

    Successful businessmen are naturally opportunistic and manipulative. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump was hiring people to instigate some of these confrontations.

    By that logic, it might as well be Ben & Jerry. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Technically speaking, Trump was not in SF, only in the SF Bay Area in neighboring Burlingame, which is not even in SF County. That is where the GOP convenes when in the Bay Area, not in the City & County of SF. So, at least some, if not most, of these "protesters" had to plan and travel outside their counties of residence to commit their premeditated acts of violence. A prosecutor not prohibited by politics could have a field day with those facts and the laws governing riots, assault, battery, conspiracies, malicious mischief, ... But, don't look for Senate wannabe and current CA AG Kamela Harris to do anything to uphold the rule of law.

    As for the relative levels of protection between Obama in 2008 and Trump now, I'd like to see the data supporting your claim, and broken down between public and private costs, if you please.

    The guess that "telling it like it is," i.e., as Trump does, is part of an agenda of inviting trouble, is an interesting one. Still, somebody needs to, and all the Demos give out are silly sagas of socialism and sugar-coated prescriptions for divisiveness and continued failure.

    In the interests of full disclosure:

    Liberals behaving like fascists....

    And in the UK it's been relentlessly suggested that rioting at Trump conventions is undertaken by his supporters....especially the corrupt BBC. Because of course they are all "far-right extremists"...

    I hope Trump wins if only to kick the lying media and twisted protesters in the teeth.
