“Why would I condemn an oppressed person expressing themselves?” NYC anti-Trump protesters react to Scalise shooting

Laura LoomerShillman Fellow

On the same day that Republicans were targeted for death by a former Bernie Sanders volunteer, activists gathered in front of Trump Tower in New York City to mark the president's birthday with a protest.

I asked them if they'd consider putting their hatred on hold for just one day, as a show of solidarity in the wake of the attempted assassination of a Republican lawmaker.

David: you’re calling for the right to exhibit the moral code it’s always employed, which is a good step above whatever line the left wishes to ignore. You’re right, of course, but the mitigating factor here is to turn the situation on it’s ear and see what shakes out. If it were a play about the assassination of Hillary and some snowflake got all bent up about it, the left would fall over itself blaming the right and sticking up for the easily-melted angel. Kind of like when those two jihadis were killed trying to murder everyone at the draw Mohammed thing last year and it was the organizer’s fault for instigating them, like that. The whole “there’s a line that protesting has to cross before it’s not just freedom of speech” concept has been rather violently shoved back a few yards recently with what the left has been getting away with, so there is the argument that the right should be able to give as good as it gets. But Laura probably gets what she deserves anyway, and it’s good that she’s out on the streets to give us stories like this one, which, IMHO, are priceless! I really wish the audio was better because I can’t think of a more blatant example of the heartlessness and blind hatred of the committed left. This video speaks volumes about the state of politics in America today, because I don’t believe it’s ever happened before that the division was so deep and the left was so blatantly and openly full of hate.

CATHY R ; You are correct the play is over the line. So Laura has the right to protest but not, block, disrupt and prevent freedom of speech and expression. She behaved exactly like the snow flake SJW socialist Left. Sorry but I’m “dead correct” in a free and just society not run by speech police.

David Ross, You are dead wrong. Laura Loomer did exactly the right thing. A public Trump assassination play is freedom of speech? More like crossing the line and a promotion of violence against President Trump, the same as the brazen display of Kathy Griffen’s isis beheading of Trump only 2 weeks ago. Laura Loomer also spoke out against it because of the murder attempts against conservatives this week at the baseball practice. Somebody has to speak out against this violence against the right. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be you.

They need to hold a mike to the person talking. The background noise and quiet voices make it very difficult to hear and not worth listening to.

Sorry , “representation”

Since The Rebel has provided no comments section for the Laura Loomer protest at the Trump Assassination ( Julius Caesar play) I am commenting here;
What Laura Loomer did was exactly why we critisize the Snow Flake Left; disrupting and blocking free speech. I do not feel her actions were a represention of what The Rebel and its followers stand for.

All that’s required to start a civil war, is for the right to adopt the tactics of the left. But we don’t, because we live by a moral code. It makes us weak! A conundrum.

Part of that air, or odor, of delusional homogeneity the left exudes, is a devolvement to porcine simpletons and loutish brutes, gauche, uninformed, narcissists all…their chauvinism, manic.
The left has become collectively offensive!
We need to cut them loose and move forward…or perish with them.
I keep hearing people mention separation and civil war…

These are simply Godless people in their Godless society. Satan is screaming he’s so angry.

By being violent, the demorats are not helping the country, they are dragging the USA down and making themselves a laughing stock right around the globe. The dem party members should be screaming for them to cease and desist and let the government DO IT’S JOB. Seems killery is just interested in getting on any show to cry about why she lost the election, everyone else is to blame except her. Boohoo get over it, she is lucky she is not wearing stripes.

All these stupid people had to do was go and vote. Now they waste time and resources while adding to their climate change religion. I guess it’d be okay if someone just started shooting them then according to their mindless mentality

Stupidity and ignorance is certainly alive on the left.

Oh the joys of Marxism. What makes these idiots think they have Gods given right to misrule their Country

Being Liberal or left-leaning in ones political views in and of itself isn’t evil per se. It may be wrong, it may be delusional, but it isn’t evil. But, BOY, the movement sure does seem to attract a lot of evil people.

Putting their hatred on hold for five minutes seems like an impossibility!
