Violence Awaits


How is this for "Minnesota Nice"?

Come for the taunts, stay for the assault at :07.


A week earlier, this was- or appeared to be- bad enough when it occurred on Long Island, NY:




The bearded guy at :20 dared the reporter to respond, after which the mob would have turned on the reporter. So it was only a matter of time until an assault would take place.

Pierce is wrong about the more recent incident. It was not a mere "nuisance" but a misdemeanor assault under the criminal statues of the state of Minnesota.There is little doubt that the woman attempted to cause fear in Lou Raguse, have him respond, and let the mob do the work for her.

Authorities have been intimidated into passivity by crowds there and rallying outside of state capitols,. Police officers, their superior officers, and the public officials who bear ultimate responsibility are counting on reporters exhibiting extreme self control when protesters attempt to incite violence in Long Island, Minnesota, and at places to come.

But at some time there will be a reporter or another individual performing his or her job and will respond as most individuals would, and as John Wayne would have recommended:  “I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.” Supporters of Donald Trump will not be satisfied, and will eventually provoke the violence they are encouraging until law enforcement recognizes the threat being posed.
