We have less than two weeks until the election is over (thank God), but as the election winds down, election-related violence seems to be ramping up.
We’ve been told by the liberal media about all the horrible violence at Trump rallies this election cycle, but they always seemed a bit unclear about who was inciting the violence. That’s because, with few exceptions, it was radical leftists traveling to Trump rallies and assaulting Trump supporters outright — as was recently laid bare by Project Veritas.
On the other hand, the media has been noticeably silent about what appears to be a pattern of violence against those who dare to support Trump openly, as well as symbols of the man himself.
Let’s just review a number of such incidences that occurred this month alone, courtesy of LifeZette;Despite their aversion to covering stories that put Trump in a sympathetic light, members of the media had no choice but to cover the extremely newsworthy Oct. 15 weekend firebombing of Republican Party headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina. Gov. Pat McCrory called the arson “an attack on our democracy,” while one GOP official called it an act of “political terrorism.” Spray-painted on the building next door were a swastika and the sentence “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.” Meanwhile, most physical attacks on Trump supporters make only local news outlets — if that. Rarely do such assaults get mentioned on the evening TV broadcast news or in The New York Times or The Washington Post. That’s because they don’t fit the leftist narrative that Republicans are violent, racist, Islamophobic homophobes.
Here is a compilation of some of the attacks on Trump supporters: On Oct. 15 in Bangor, Maine, vandals spray-painted about 20 parked cars outside a Trump rally. Trump supporter Paul Foster, whose van was hit with white paint, told reporters, “Why can’t they do a peaceful protest instead of painting cars, all of this, to make their statement?”
Around Oct. 3, a couple of Trump supporters were assaulted in Zeitgeist, a San Francisco bar, after they were allegedly refused service for expressing support for Trump, GotNews reports. “The two Trump supporters were attacked, punched, and chased into the street by ‘some thugs’ that a barmaid called out from the back.” Lilian Kim of ABC 7 Bay Area tweeted a photo of the men, in which one was wearing a Trump T-shirt and the other was wearing a “Blue Lives Matter” shirt.
The day before, on Oct 2nd, Trump’s newest hotel in Washington D.C. was vandalized with “Black Lives Matter” graffiti, and just this morning, Trump’s star on Hollywood’s walk of fame was vandalized.

What’s the equivalent of this happening to Hillary Clinton? Someones “Hillary 2016” lawn sign being stolen?
Now tell me again, who are the intolerant, violent ones?
