In day of pro-Trump rallies, California march turns violent

Supporters of Donald Trump clashed with counter-protesters at a rally in the famously left-leaning city of Berkeley, California, on a day of mostly peaceful gatherings in support of the U.S. president across the country.

At a park in Berkeley, across the bay from San Francisco, protesters from both sides struck one another over the head with wooden sticks and Trump supporters fired pepper spray as police in riot gear stood at a distance.

Some in the pro-Trump crowd, holding American flags, faced off against black-clad opponents. An elderly Trump supporter was struck in the head and kicked on the ground.

Organizers of the so-called Spirit of America rallies in at least 28 the country’s 50 states had said they expected smaller turn-outs than the huge crowds of anti-Trump protesters that clogged the streets of Washington and other cities the day after the Republican’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

“There are a lot of angry groups protesting and we thought it was important to show our support,” said Peter Boykin, president of Gays for Trump, who helped organize Saturday’s rally in Washington.

    Typical of the “tolerant” left. “Speech is only free if we agree with it”. Any who dare to disagree MUST be silenced, else their voices may be heard. They can not allow that or their candidates my not get into office. (Of course then they can claim racism, misogyny and any other kid of “ism” they can think of) Attacking the other side with violence is unacceptable from either side, but why is it normally from the “tolerant” left? Why do they refuse to allow dissention? Did not Hillary herself say that dissention is patriotic?

          1. Tiger says:

            He didn’t have to accept 50,000 more and he doesn’t have to. He is the POTUS, he can’t secure this country if he continues to bring these scum in. It has to stop, he has to keep them over there. I still support him but I let him have it for this. I won’t let up on him either. This is important, it has to stop, they have to get out of our country, he can’t give in on any of this. I will keep on criticizing him.

          2. Grandpa says:

            I just don’t get it ever dam loser in wdc is try to stop him boy he will never do anything right in your eye so why don’t you just vote for Hillary because if you ever new or watched or listen to him he is trying to stop he wrote a bill to stop them a a judge over road him in Washington state 9 curict court man people just don’t get it if your so smart why don’t you get up and do something to change it instead of bitching about it !!!!! Have a great day let see what you can do beside bitching about it got to the 9 curcit court and change them !!!

          3. Tiger says:

            Look I have listened to every single speech he has ever made. It is because of this I will continue to hold his feet to the fire. There are things he can do without the approval of anyone and I know he knows the laws.

            Don’t be ignorant by saying I should have voted for Hillary that makes no sense and doesn’t even play into this conversation, you are smarter than that. I will continue to reproach him if he doesn’t hold up his promises especially where refugees are concerned.

            I work with my congressman and I do much and I am not bitching, if I were a man expressing my displeasure you wouldn’t call it bitching now would you and by the way what have you done lately?

            The 9th Circuit has 80% of it’s rulings overturned they can be taken down and should be. So stop the bitching.

            I am with you Grandpa and I live in Florida where we shoot first and ask questions later. Trump, I believe was chosen at this time in our countries history and nobody but him could have become president. We prayed millions of us and I agree with Franklin Graham Trump is the one. God is with him but he still needs to be told when going in the wrong direction and Muslims are needed like a wart on our noses, we have had eight years of them coming here by the hundreds of thousands, they are a huge tax payer problem sucking up over 1 billion a year and for Trump to bring in another 50,000 in 2017 do you want them in your town? He has to not do this. I will write, email and continue to hound him not to do this. Did you know the president decides who comes here? He can stop this just as Obama started it.

            I am with you 100% when the time comes we will all do what has to be done to stop these people.

            The President of the United States (informally referred to as “POTUS”)[8][note 2] is the head of state and head of government of the United States. The president directs the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.

            The President is considered to be one of the world’s most powerful
            political figures, as the leader of the only contemporary global superpower.[9][10][11][12] The role includes being the commander-in-chief of the world’s most expensive military with the second largest nuclear arsenal and leading the nation with the largest economy by nominal GDP. The office of President holds significant hard and soft power both in the United States and abroad.

            Article II of the U.S. Constitution
            vests the executive power of the United States in the president. The
            power includes execution of federal law, alongside the responsibility of
            appointing federal executive, diplomatic, regulatory and judicial
            officers, and concluding treaties with foreign powers with the advice and consent of the Senate. The president is further empowered to grant federal pardons and reprieves, and to convene and adjourn either or both houses of Congress under extraordinary circumstances.[13]
            The president is largely responsible for dictating the legislative
            agenda of the party to which the president is a member. The president
            also directs the foreign and domestic policy of the United States.[14]
            Since the office of President was established in 1789, its power has
            grown substantially, as has the power of the federal government as a
            whole.[15]

        Listen up Grandpa, I will not lay down and follow my leader when he goes the wrong way. I will holler and scream, write him and push him and do everything to get him to keep his promises.

        My eyes are wide open, I want the criminal illegals out of our country, I want the refugee program stopped, I don’t want 50,000 Muslim refugees in my country in 2017, I want this stopped and that is why Trump in office.

        I am not a sheep I am an active participant in my government.

  • Shelly Shannon says:

    More power to the Trump supporters. It is time we all stand up and support this President. I wish there would have been a rally in my city. I would have been right there with them. I’m glad that Trump people fought back and showed these buttercup idiots that they are no longer going to run the show.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Amen Shelly, I’ve always said you can only poke a bull so many times before he turns on you!! Things are slowly coming to a head and time these coloring books were shoved up the pansies butts!

      1. Shelly Shannon says:

        I would bet on the fact that Trump supporters are stronger, louder, and more forceful than thin-skinned liberals? I don’t think they ever expected us to stand in the same space and fight. That was funny because they thought they had us silenced. Lol

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          You got that right, they REALLY wouldn’t like us if they made us mad!! :-}
