"Violence is absolutely and totally unacceptable. If people are thinking about violence, please do not tell anybody you are a Bernie Sanders supporter, because those are not the supporters that I want...I understand the anger. But we are not going to defeat Trump by throwing eggs or getting involved in violence of any kind."

Thoughts?

Rhetoric like that could cause Hillary to lose the election to Trump. Most people already suspect the majority of the paid violence baiters and instigators are from Hillary donors.

Trump will desperately need the Bernie vote in November, so any sympathy Trump gets from Bernie, he would be extremely wise to embrace it.

The sad thing about our country is that I can see that happening - similar to how paid internet trolls has already been exposed.

Good call. He is destined to lose and just staying in to drive voter turnout for local elections, so losing a few voters to quell some violence is fine

I think that the speed with which Clinton responded to the situation was a bit suspicious. Look at any breaking news article, and her denouncement is in the first press release.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

That would be the death blow to her - if it was found she was actually found to be paying people for violence, as opposed to the bullsh!t claims of inciting violence directed at Trump and Sanders.

And on the note of San Jose, I hope the Sharks win.

I am so happy that exposure of paid internet trolls finally happened; I've suspected it for years - but people used to say I need a tinfoil hat and other snide remarks. I also know that there are paid protesters, who don't support who they claim to. It's all about game, and seeing who can incite the most emotion and knee-jeck reactions.

At an early Trump rally, Trump encouraged a supporter to punch out a protester. That was a stupid move, but Trump learned and now all the Trump rallies play a recorded message telling supporters to yell back, but to never start violence, and to just point out the problem to security people. Bernie did absolutely the right thing in condemning the violence. He has admirable traits of integrity on top of his delusional socialism. Hillary is what someone called "authentically inauthentic." it never occurs to her to say anything that is not computed to sell.

Leftists have been staging violent protests for many decades. No one has to tell them to do it, it's a natural accompaniment to their authoritarianism. The mayor of San Jose said that the mere existence of Trump supporters was inflammatory, so it was Trumps fault. That been the line on the hard left. You know, it's just like how the existence of black people inflamed the KKK.
