Donald Trump Says Regarding Contested Convention: ‘I Hope It Doesn’t Involve Violence’

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …

Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later?  With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?

Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?

Donald Trump thumbs up

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.

“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”

Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.

Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:

Colorado ACLU Board Member: Shoot Trump Voters ‘Before Election Day’ … From the LIB who Called Trump a Hate Speech Felon

JUST CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU THINK THE MSM WOULD REACT IF DONALD TRUMP OR ANY REPUBLICAN MADE SUCH A COMMENT?

Isn’t it the unhinged, lunatic LEFT that is against guns and gun violence? Hmm, then why would Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, call for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman? Where is the liberal tolerance? Where’s the love? Better than that, this moron calls Trump a hate speech felon and yet is calling for people to shoot people in the process, seriously? Who’s the felon?

Isn’t the liberal left double standard of intolerance remarkable? These are the folks that rail about free speech, yet they look to prevent Donald Trump from having his. Then this is the same bunch that look to take the guns away from law abiding citizens while they make threats of gun violence and call for voters to be shot. Unreal and SICK!

Trump_shoot supporters

Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.

Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:

The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.

More insane rants from the LEFT via Twitchy.

Just curious, how is one allowed to make such a threat like this and a call for violence? Sorry, this goes beyond free speech.

UNREAL … Barack Hussein Obama Says of Mass San Bernardino Shootings by Two Radicalized Islamists … “It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know, It’s also possible this was workplace-related”. (VIDEO)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME, THIS MAN TRULY EITHER HAS A MENTAL DEFICIENCY OR A HIDEOUS AGENDA … WHY CAN’T BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JUST SAY ITS TERRORISM?

When you have a president who cannot even see or admit to terrorism when it smacks him in the face, Houston, we have a problem …

It is unbelievable that this president can not just call terrorism, terrorism. During a presser seen below, Barack Hussein Obama refused to call this for what it was, radical Islamic terrorism as he stated, “It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible this was workplace-related.” REALLY? Hmm, so an act of workplace violence consists of body armor, GoPro cameras, an apartment that was said by authorities to be a bomb making factory and an stockpile of guns an ammunition to arm those right wing extremists you are so found of calling domestic terrorists.

Obama_dumbass2

A duh, well it could be workplace violence and ah, duh, maybe it was Republicans …

No Barack, your first order of business was to demand more gun control and it was Democrats that said, it was not to offer prayers to the families. Do you might want to get your talking points straight next time. How sad is it that we have a president that is so quick to rush to judgement and call certain actions racist with no facts whatsoever, but when it comes to obvious acts of terrorism, he is cautious and plodding? At this point, when it comes to the safety of Americans and this president fails to recognize the obvious … one has to say he is derelict in his duty as President of the United States.

President Obama sought to assure Americans that investigators will get to the bottom of the San Bernardino shootings, even as he noted that investigators know little about what motivated the shooting spree that killed 14 people and injured at least 17.

“It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible this was workplace-related,” he said. “There may be mixed motives in all this, which makes the investigation more complicated. But rest assured, we will get to the bottom of this.”

Obama noted that the attackers were “equipped with weapons and appeared to have access to additional weaponry at their homes, but we don’t know why they did it.”

UPDATE I: University of Chicago Would-Be-Shooter Wanted To ‘Rid The World of White Devils’.

According to the police report, the man who threatened to attack the University of Chicago Monday morning planned to target white males and wanted to do his part to “rid the world of white devils.”

The threat apparently came in the form of a comment on the website WorldStarHipHop. In the comment, the commentator threatened to avenge the death of Laquon McDonald, the black man who was shot and killed by a Chicago police officer, sparking protests across the greater Chicago area.

UPDATE II: “I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process.”

“This is my only warning. At 10 AM Monday morning, I’m going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with an M-4 carbine and two desert eagles, all fully loaded. I will execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time McDonald was killed,” he wrote.

“I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process. This is not a joke. I am [sic] to do my part and rid the world of white devils. I expect you do the same,” he continued.

UPDATE III: Jabari R. Dean, of Chicago, was arrested Monday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.

A 21-year-old college student has been arrested for threatening to “execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff” at the University of Chicago, and then “any number of white policemen,” to avenge the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Jabari R. Dean, of Chicago, was arrested Monday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois announced. According to the affidavit, Dean wrote in an online post that he planned to show up at the University of Chicago’s campus quad Monday morning armed with an assault rifle and two semi-automatic pistols and would “do my part to rid the world of the white devils.”
