Clearly, not all the violence in Trump rallies were caused by paid employees of the Democratic party. Even if they were, they wouldn't take the bait unless they were violent people to start with. What about the reporters? What about the black people? What about the people standing quietly in a hijab or wearing a t-shirt? On and on....forgot those little kid bits did ya?!

Trump says Clinton and Obama paid people to cause violence at his rallies | PolitiFact

you think they wouldn't take the bait unless they were "violent" people? How about needing money? How about it's a way to pay some bills.

An image on TV at a Trump rally is really the point. An image is worth a thousand words. They can just stand there in whatever they want, holding whatever they want, and many viewers will take that as Trump haters , most not realizing they are being paid for this - most paid for "protestors" not having any clue what they are doing.

Black lives matter did the same thing - paid to come in and wreak havoc.

Perhaps I misunderstood then I thought they pretended to be anti-Trump people to provoke Trump people. The Trump people didn't have to take that bait.

But what you're saying is that these people were paid by the Clinton camp to pretend to be Trump supporters and be stir up violence to make Trump supporters look bad but they were really plants by the Democrats?

Best. Election. Ever.

I do interpret this as a mistake. Maybe his way of interrupting to get Donald's attention was misunderstood as being disruptive. I don't view this as any big deal. I feel bad for that guy if he was misconstrued, but if he's a Trump supporter, he understands that mistakes happen.

Nash County resident C.J. Cary tried to deliver a note to Donald Trump at the Kinston Jet Center. Trump questioned if he was a "thug" hired by Clinton campaign for $1,500 to disrupt the event. ...

... Cary, an African-American, says he's an ex-Marine who also worked in Afghanistan as a civilian for the U.S. Army.

He walked his way toward the front rows, stood about 20-30 feet from the stage and shouted 'Donald” while waving his document to try to get Trump's attention.

'He entirely mistook that and thought that I was a protester,” Cary said.

Trump's response: 'Were you paid $1,500 to be a thug?” Cary was escorted out...

alt-right creation by the left

"alt-right" where does it come from? It is an online phenomenon.

one interpretation "Its main subjects of scorn tend to be out-of-touch, left-wing elites in politics, business, academia, and the mainstream media who they believe to be actively ruining society through their aggressive embrace of feminist, multicultural, and post-modernist ideas"

What is the American 'alternative right'? - Quora

UNTIL August this year, the Alt- (short for alternative) Right did not matter much. Two things happened to change that. First, Donald Trump appointed Steve Bannon, a former executive-chairman of Breitbart, as CEO of his campaign. Breitbart is a website that has published stories praising the Alt-Right. Then Hillary Clinton gave a speech in Reno, Nevada, in which she denounced Mr Trump for bringing the Alt-Right and its admirers into the mainstream of American politics. Many hundreds of thousands of Google searches followed. People claiming to speak for the Alt-Right were delighted by the attention. What is this Alt-Right thing? And why does it matter, if indeed it does?

An Establishment Conservative's Guide To The Alt-Right - Breitbart

Interesting that some interpretations of this "movement" with this alt-right say all sorts of things, the bottom line is that this is an ill-defined attempt at someone somewhere, probably on the left, making some type of definition of people who oppose the left. They call they alt-right and assign horrible labels, once again because they disagree with the left. So add misogynist, racist, sexist, blah blah blah and add on "white male" and oh my GOD we have a horrible label. It's pretty funny and the more reasonable people on this thread won't drink the Kool aid and believe this nonsense.

"Alt-right" is a pretty benign and straightforward description of the political ideology of Trump. Trump is self-described as being both more conservative than liberal, ie "right", and he's promoted himself as not being mainstream, ie "alternative" or "alt" for short. I'm not really sure what the offensive part of that description is.

There is also an "alt-left", most notably Bernie Sanders whose campaign was at least partly based on not being mainstream Democratic, whereas Clinton is pretty much the definition of mainstream, non progressive, democrat.

I don't know for sure, but the alternate-right camp seems to be adrift in a sea of wild conspiracy theories, nebulous scandals that never turn out to be quite what they were supposed to be, Islamic terrorists everywhere, and men selling gold. As for labels, when people are anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-"Black Lives Matter" (aka: black), and accept the vulgar, abusive language ("...grab 'em by the p*$$y") of a Presidential candidate as perfectly normal "locker-room talk," I'm afraid the xenophobic, sexist, racist, Islamophobic shoe does kind of fit.

read the prior posts of the person that keeps writing "alt-right" clearly meant to be demeaning. Either way, all of those terms are just trendy, irritating jargon, much like "optics, low hanging fruit, empower, bandwidth" and of course, Crossfit. LOL.

according to you. None of those labels apply, but you and others like you, seem to try to slap that to him as hard as you can. At this point, none of those are sticking and I doubt they ever will.

Good luck to ya.

What those alt-right supporters won't like is that the alt-right is self affiliated with racism, bigotry, misogyny, ignorance, and violence while dwelling in the internet world of conspiracy theory and fear. People want to support Trump, who supports and even represents those elements of the alt-right but they do not want to be equated with the things represented by that support.

It would seem that many of them want to be able to speak like a racist without being identified as a racist, or act like a misogynist without being identified as a misogynist. Just like they want us to accept that Trump said he assaults women but we are not supposed to label him as a sexual predator or assaulter. Meanwhile they assign all manner of labels to Clinton, many of which have absolutely NO foundation in facts or truth.

Obviously, you don't believe that they are "sticking," and you and plenty of others refuse to believe any of the most obvious evidence about Trump and his values, but plenty of us are able to see him quite clearly for what he is.

So what you're saying is what I just wrote about Trump. Just because you write your opinion, it is still opinion, not fact.

Just because HRC lies, She's not a liar? Just because she cheats, she's not a cheater? She calls herself a feminist yet attacks the women that Bill raped.

Either way, the past few days events will most certainly close in on her and combust. Best. Election. Ever. For sure.
