A group of organized left wing radicals with no regard for free speech stopped a Donald Trump rally today the only way leftists know how. Through sheer force:
Trump protesters were blocking vehicles leading into Fountain Hills in advance of Donald Trump’s campaign stop Saturday morning.
Three protesters were arrested, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.
"We had a little problem," Arpaio told the crowd gathered in Fountain Hills. "Demonstrators were trying to disrupt.Three of them are in jail. If they think they’re going to intimidate you the next president of the U.S., it’s not going to happen."
The protesters parked their cars in the middle of the road, unfurling banners reading "Dump Trump" and "Must Stop Trump," and chanting "Trump is hate." Traffic was backed up for miles, with drivers honking in fury.
Protesters were chanting, "Donald Trump, shut it down, Phoenix is the people's town."
It's one thing to disagree with Trump. Our free society provides every opportunity for people who disagree with a particular point of view to engage it in the marketplace of ideas. But the radical left can't be bothered with that. Because enforcing their orthodox PC beliefs is more important than the truth, their aim in nearly every situation is to make sure that speech they disagree with doesn't get a proper hearing. This isn't just juvenile, it's bad for society.
