How often has Trump railed against the media as the enemy of the people. Trump is the only government official that has called for actual physical violence. He has also openly opined about killing someone in the streets. While a candidate an MSNBC reporter was in so much danger from his rally crowd Secret Service had to escort her out of the venue.

Trump supporter attacked a BBC cameraman at that El Paso rally Monday night. At no Time did Trump implore his crowd not to resort to violence. Then again by his past actions why would he? Trump has called for physical violence from his supporters on multiple occasions.

This is exactly the type of violence we have all come to expect from the right.

The Right today is unhinged and becomes violent and reacts with such when their emotionally held ideals are challenged, they manufacture hatred as needed to fit their narrative. Especially to any who might criticize their Leader, who has declared the Free Press to be the Enemy of the People.

Speaking of which, have you seen the Italian parade that depicted Trump as a God Emperor? I realize that the point of the parade was to be derisive of Trump but I doubt he or his followers are taking it that way.

Details seem light on what / who caused the fight. Not the same situation as a roaming pack of antifa thugs assaulting those that have different views than them. Kristallnacht-loving antifa scum.

People turn a blind eye to how fast the left can erupt in violence over anything that challenges their point of view.

The BBC does a good job of reporting the actual news. However, American based news pushes opinion pieces as factual news. People are tired of fake opinion pieces being pushed as real news, and articles filled with weasel words.

You turn a blind eye to POTUS advocating physical violence.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr O'Donoghue said it was "an incredibly violent attack".
"This is a constant feature of these rallies - a goading of the crowds against the media," Mr O'Donoghue said, who added that he had been "spat at before".
Last August UN experts warned Mr Trump's attacks "increase the risk of journalists being targeted with violence", calling his rhetoric "strategic".
New York Times publisher AG Sulzberger has urged the president to stop his media assaults.
CNN meanwhile filmed supporters of Mr Trump yelling abuse and swearing at reporters covering a rally in Florida last year.
Fake news.

That doesn't mean he didn't bump the guy, shove him out of the way, try to raise the tax on tea... whatever. No details in regards to what started the fight. Seems like a minor scuffle, very different than antifa jumping a couple of people because they support Trump. Hispanic Trump supporters at that. You're trying too hard with this one.

No hate crime. I was mocking a prior post.

POTUS has called for physical violence and this guy responded.

Also quote from the cameraman...
Fortunately our cameraman is fine, he is made of stern stuff,” O’Donoghue told the “Today” program on BBC Radio 4. He called it “an incredibly violent attack” and said the “goading of the crowds against the media” is “a constant feature” of Trump’s rallies.

The camera man didn't even get knocked to the ground. Is every shove going to be documented and virally spread as a national story?
Trump only encourages attacks on the press like, regularly, what's the big deal?

Who cares if someone talks about it when it gets physical, it's not like the camera man was body slammed, amirite?
