On freedom of speech at a Trump rally


[The following was prompted by reading that a Progressive ChicagoNow blogger was going to attend a Trump rally]

In life there is many a peril

Floods, fires and animals feral.

But add this to the rest:

If you ever protest

At Trump rallies, you’re fish in a barrel.

  • They say it isn't a public forum but I don't buy that. However it proves that he and some of his followers are thugs, and at least one of them got arrested for assault. Just more for someone's law and order candidate, Rat (see last night).

  • He gone!

    No, he only doing away games, while Jason Benetti does the home ones.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Caitlyn Jenner says Hillary a 'f'ing liar' and Donald Trump would be good for women.

    In Other News: Mike Dikta wakes up after latest firing feeling feminine, takes legal shower in Palatine girls locker room.

    I thought you had something against the transgendered, especially concerned when Bruce uses the lady's can., as indicated in your second sentence. But I guess, like your hero, you use them when convenient.

    Jack, it's a political koan.

    You didn't comment on the firing of Chicago 'hero' Mike Dikta.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Unless you mean by a member of the McCaskey family, he was not fired by ESPN, but decided on limited duties, so he wouldn't have to travel to Bristol every Sunday. But you could have looked that up.

    And as far as the koan, I thought you took offense to some third party commenter taking notice of "zen" in "4zen."

    Certainly a puzzlement.

    According to Sarah Jindra, I thought you were at the UIC Pavilion getting ready to beat up some protesters. Or was the above posted from a mobile device?

    Anger, by itself, accomplishes nothing.

  • In the meantime, Foghorn Leghorn has become chicken.

  • In reply to jack:

    Jack, was that you with terrorist Bill Ayres burning bras and constitutions over Saganaki at Jackson/Halstead last night?

  • In reply to 4zen:

    If you want to get stupid, I see it took 24 hours for you to get bailed out after Sgt Belker took you in.

    Or were you next to the old bag from Yorkville wearing the Trump T-shirt who was photographed by the Tribune?

    Don't tell me you didn't see your man lie on his promise "I never disappoint."

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I left out after "shirt" "giving the Nazi salute."

    I saw her on TV, and I don't believe what she said. She was sure wrong about "Hitler was not elected." At least the Nazi party was to the Reichstag.

    They said on TV that her picture went viral, so I guess you didn't have any problem finding it.

    And if you go back in The Quark, you'll note that I predicted this, although not necessarily her.

    In the meantime, your hero, in addition to his other personality disorders, has become paranoid. Bernie was after him in Chicago and ISIS in Dayton. But my next prediction is that he won't have Secret Service protection for much longer.

    I found the article about her in another comment section.

    So Jack, you don't believe her? You think this poor old woman is really a skin-head nazi? You don't think she was just being sarcastic to a bunch punks calling her and her husband names?

    Don't you think that sounds a little 'paranoid?'

  • In reply to 4zen:

    From what was said about her background, yes, although later sources indicate she was born in 1946. The protester in the confrontation had a different account of the incident.

    However, she must be pretty stupid not to have realized that, like most things these days, cameras are everywhere.

    But maybe the Drumpf crowd better be glad there hasn't been a 150 year ban on immigrants from Deutschland. According to some reports, his German state would not take Friedrich Drumpf back after he set up a bordello in the Yukon Territory and evaded taxes. However, it was supposedly the world's most magnificent bordello. Something runs in the family.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    BTW, about everything outrageous about OF and his gang you characterize as "sarcastic." Does that make him any more electable?

    As I said a while back, all he is doing is punking you.

  • In reply to jack:

    I do appreciate your concern for my well being, but this experience has been very enlightening regardless of the outcome. The super delegates coupled with the head of the DNC on one side and the establishment Republicans on the other have showed me how little of a republic we actually have.

    Speaking of Germany, I was reading about their elections results today. It appears Merkel's 'open borders' party is in big trouble. Hopefully her brand of nihilism is ebbing world wide, Britain's next.

    Back to the old woman, don't be to hard on her, technology is quickly 'punking' all of us.

    Somehow, I messed up another link
