Thugs break through police barriers, throw rocks, smash door at Trump rally in Albuquerque - Thomas Lifson

by Thomas Lifson

It is pretty obvious which side is degrading presidential politics.

The attempt of the Left to portray Donald Trump as a Nazi or fascist for believing that borders mean controlling who crosses them is backfiring in the hands of crazed protestors from their own side.  CNN reports:
Protesters lit fires, smashed a door and threw rocks outside a Donald Trump rally Tuesday night in New Mexico -- the latest scuffle to follow the presumptive Republican nominee's campaign
The scene outside Albuquerque's convention center was chaotic as police ushered protesters away from Trump's event and into the nearby street    
There, anti-Trump protesters -- many critical of his positions on immigration -- loudly chanted, "F*** Donald Trump."
Watching AP’s video of some of the chaos, we see the Guy Fawkes masks, popularized by the Occupy movement, being used to hide identities from the police:

Footage shot by the Albuquerque Journal shows young women leading the charge through police barricades:

Perhaps these rowdies believe they will persuade voters to shun Trump with these tactics. I suppose the antiwar demonstrators at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968 harbored similar delusions. It is pretty oviosu [sic] which side is degrading presidential politics.
