Violent clashes between protesters and police outside of Trump rally in Utah. And this is just be the beginning.

Source
Courtesy of ABC News:  

Protesters clashed with supporters of Donald Trump after he gave a speech in Utah on Friday, ending a day full of presidential candidate appearances that also saw Mitt Romney intensifying his criticism of the GOP front-runner. 

Hundreds of people chanted "Dump Trump" and "Mr. Hate Out of Our State" as police in riot gear blocked the entrance to the Salt Lake City building, after protesters tried to rush the door and got into dozens of screaming matches with Trump supporters who didn't make into the venue. 

Trump said he loves Mormons in his first public appearance of the campaign in Utah. He had critical words, though, for former presidential candidate and Utah resident Mitt Romney, who said he was supporting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the state's upcoming caucuses.

 "Are you sure he's a Mormon? Are we sure?" he jokingly asked his crowd at the Infinity Event Center.

For those who thought that perhaps the anger and violence would cool down, and that Trump had learned his lesson after Chicago, uh nope.

In fact there are signs that it is only going to ratchet up even more.

Courtesy of Politico:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County is relishing the opportunity to host Donald Trump at a rally on his own turf Saturday — and serve as the muscle at the same time. 

“Here I’m gonna be kinda wearing two hats — in charge of the security there in the town and also participating, I would imagine, with Trump in the rally, so it makes it interesting,” Arpaio said in an interview with POLITICO, adding that it “is going to be a lot of fun taking care of business there.” 

Arpaio, who officially endorsed Trump back in January, said that he’s expecting protests at Saturday’s event. But the 83-year-old sheriff who has repeatedly been accused of racial profiling Hispanic residents says Trump’s clashes pale in comparison to his own. 

“I’ve had demonstrations against me constantly,” he said. “He hasn’t had that many demonstrators compared to me.”

Earlier today protesters blocked a road leading to the Trump rally in Arizona. And true to his word Arpaio had some of them arrested.

I seriously doubt this will discourage protesters in the future however. In fact I would imagine that their numbers will only increase.

During that speech in Arizona today Donald Trump had this to say:  

“We’re going to win with our Second Amendment,” he said as the crowd cheered. “We’re gonna win big league with our Second Amendment!”

Yes, that should do tons to tamp down the violence.

Personally I think we can predict with some certainty that there will be a fatality at a Trump rally. The only question is where will it happen, and will it be inside or outside the venue?

Currently half the country sees "fascist undertones" in Donald Trump's campaign.

And my response to that is, "Really, only half?"

    Well, I'm not a fan of Mormons either and send them packing from my door with a bunch of harsh words and admonishment that they are a bunch of fucking brainwashed Morons that believe a story even more retarded than the original bible.

    They smile and walk away, promising to never, ever grace my private driveway again.

    They deserve any ridicule they receive, they are just weirdos with a weird story that seriously no one could believe unless they were brainwashed morons.

I haven't had any visit me in quite some time, but years ago when they came calling, they were less than happy about getting up close and personal with my three Great Pyrenees - the best guard dogs ever!

    ----------
    Sounds like he wants to win by killing people. Are they going to kill them at the polls?

    I believe Trump is mentally ill. This is way beyond being a bully. He certainly is paranoid and if he is not ashamed of what goes on at his rallies, why is he controlling the press?

    I also want to know exactly how he is funding his campaign. He keeps bragging that he is paying for it himself but most of his wealth is tied up in real estate so where is he getting the money for ads, paying staff etc?

    NOT Great News For John McCain: A Trump Ticket

    Whoops. It might be that if Donald Trump is the GOP Nominee for President, it could mean an end to John McCain's Senate career....

    ....Deguire said the biggest X factor could be Trump and his effect on the electorate. Will he mobilize working-class voters to vote Republican or will he unleash a wave of Hispanics to register and vote Democratic?

    “Sen. McCain and Ann Kirkpatrick’s race is going to boil down to who’s atop the ticket. I think you’re going to see this across the board nationally,” he added.

      2:53, while I was listening to NPR the other day, they had an interesting little piece on just the subject you raised with your quote from the posting. It seems the answer to your question about working class voters versus Hispanics is the latter. Voter registration for Hispanics is UP 40% over previous records ever since Trump got in it. Even those who have not learned English and yet are eligible are turning out in FAR higher numbers than ever before to register! Those they interviewed despised trump! They WERE the first group he attacked, after all.

      And they WILL vote!

    Donald Trump’s Wife And Daughter Tell Him To ‘Act Presidential,’ He Claims
    But the Republican front-runner says he just can’t help himself.

    Donald Trump said his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka have asked him to “act presidential,” but he is having trouble listening to them.

    “My wife and my daughter Ivanka said to me, ‘Act presidential! Act presidential!’” Trump told supporters at a rally outside Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday. “Like in the last debate, I acted presidential, OK? I didn’t hit little Marco and I didn’t hit lyin, lyin, lyin Ted.”

    “I didn’t wanna hit ‘em — I wanted to really impress my daughter and my wife,” he added.

    Trump is the cancerous growth that suddenly alarms so many in the nation, Republican and Democrat alike. Do we deserve this malady? Is it somehow our fault? There must have been symptoms that we missed. There must have been preventative measures we could have taken, cures that would have worked, only it is too late now. America will be made great again, and then she will moan one last time on her gold-plated deathbed, and then she will die.

He appeared hot bothered sweaty mental crazy insane at the az rally, which his supporters loved. A control freak, dictator, bad business dude buying America? Really? what movie was that again?
