What do you think? Is Trump to blame for the violent protesters at his rallies? Or are these just typical leftists that are clearly and strategically organized?
“This is classic Marxist Agitprop. To those that blame Trump, understand that the left has been ginning up anger like this for years. You can start with The Haymarket Affair in Chicago in 1886 and go straight thru to today. Each decade has something. In the old days it was labor strikes and destroying factories. Then in the 60s it was antiwar protests. Rodney King riots left 50+ dead. Occupy had over 7000 arrests. Wisconsin Statehouse. Ferguson and Baltimore led to BLM.
In all cases the Agitprop tactic is the same. Complain, play victim, stir up physical violence as justified by “intolerable conditions”. “No Justice no Peace”, etc. Push until the right reacts, then play martyr. If you look at Kent State, for example, those protestor were out there for days throwing rocks before a cop lost it and shot back.
So here we are. After thousands of tea party rallies, without any violence or threats of violence from the right, and with dozens of Trump rallies invaded by increasingly threatening protestors, the left finally got what they want. Video of a few Trump supporters hurling insults, exactly one throwing a punch and a grainy shot where a Trump staffer “grabbed the arm” of a reporter for 2 video frames. Oh the horror.
And now the left wing Agitprop machine will go into higher gear. To say that this is the Right’s fault or Trump’s fault is to say that Agitprop terrorism works and we can never fight back and must always yield. And we have yielded and grown smaller and smaller. Crybullies regularly shut down speech on campus and conservatives need guards to speak.
Note that Agitprop is what the Palestinians do with “Pallywood” and when they hurl rocks or rockets until they one gets shot and then complain they are oppressed. “Liberation from Oppression”. When you see that on signs, know that’s Marxist speak 101.
Even The Boston Massacre was the same. It’s to his great credit that John Adams defended the British soldiers. Too bad Cruz and Kasich didn’t see that connection.
This is left wing Agitprop. Terrorism and propaganda combined. It’s as old as the hills. It’s how they get what they want. What this really all signals – from the way the tea party was portrayed as violent in the media even when it wasn’t, to today – is that any pushback from us on the right WILL be met with this Agitprop technique. Cries of oppression, amped up agitation and fake martyrs. If we yield we lose, period.”
