Trump event in Iowa cut short after tomatoes hurled

On the 1st of February, WTOP Radio reported Donald Trump as telling his brownshirtss to "knock the crap out of" anyone getting ready to throw tomatoes at him. This came after a Jan 27th incident in Iowa were one person was arrested for throwing two tomatoes at Trump and another person wore a "Heil Trumpler" protest T-shirt.

Code Pink activists assaulted by Trump brownshirts in Las Vegas

On the 21st of January, a Code Pink activist was punched and violently dragged out of a Donald Trump rally after raising a banner and demanding an end to the hate Trump is peddling. As the brownshirts pummeled her she lost her jacket. When someone tried to return it, Donald Trump himself ordered the good Samaritan to stand down, saying “leave her jacket there… to hell with her.” This is what makes the violent Trump supporters brownshirts-the command and control relationship between them and their Fuhrer Donald Trump. This kind of ugly violence is more commonly associated with German beer hall speeches in the late 1920's and early 1930's than with elections in the US.

VA schools closing for primary election over potential for violence from Trump brownshirts

On the 13th of January, the Washington Post announced that Virgina school officials plan to close the schools during the March 1 "Super Tuesday" presidential primary. This is due to fear that Donald Trump supporters may react with violence to the state GOP's requirement that voters wanting a GOP ballot attest that they are Republicans. Donald Trump has been unique among all candidates in the 2016 Presidential race in endorsing violence against Black Lives Matter protesters and other enemies of his racist, xenophobic campaign. Thus it is reasonable to expect that violence or even organized rioting could occur if Trump supporters physically contest the state GOP's requirement for a Republican ballot.
