The Left has attempted to suppress every other form of free speech, so why not this?
The purported catalyst for the petition aimed at banning future Trump campaign rallies was the “send her back” chants by attendees at a recent rally in North Carolina.
The petition was drafted by founder Igor Volsky, vice president of the far-left Center for American Progress and director of Guns Down America. In the petition, he writes:
On August 1st, Donald Trump is scheduled to host a campaign rally at the U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The event will take place less than a month after Trump presided over a North Carolina crowd chanting “Send her back! Send her back!” about an American Muslim congresswoman he targeted with racist attacks.
Given Donald Trump’s penchant for stirring up unrestrained demagoguery and racist hate-filled chants against women, minorities, and immigrants at his campaign rallies, we are asking AEG Worldwide, which owns the U.S. Bank Arena, to cancel the event and refuse to rent its space to the Trump campaign.
The president decried the chant afterwards, but evidently that’s not enough for Volsky and the 6,379 lemmings that had signed the petition as of this writing. They somehow want him held liable for what prospective voters say at his rallies so that they can quash his right to campaign for re-election.
As Trending Politics notes, the petition, though outrageous and un-American, is not the most extreme discipline liberals have advocated in the wake of the chant:
Co-host of “The View” Joy Behar went as far to suggest that President Trump should be criminally charged for the chant which came from the crowd.
Behar also accused the President of “inviting violence” onto Omar along with others belonging to the progressive “squad.”
“He doesn’t care or doesn’t acknowledge the fact that what he is doing is possibly inviting violence towards these women, and women who are saying this is wrong,” Behar said. “I don’t like this.”
Behar continued by questioning if President Trump could be charged or sued for the chant.
“Why can’t he be brought up on charges of hate speech?” Behar questioned. “Why can’t he be sued by the ACLU for hate speech?”
