The mask has fallen off the radical leftists who organized the assassination of free speech at Friday’s scheduled Donald Trump rally in Chicago.
The Daily Caller has detailed three of the groups who have braggadociously taken responsibility for the chaos.
ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Chicago is the Chicago franchise of an international network started in the wake of 9/11 and among the first to protest against a response in Afghanistan; since then the group is involved in most of the radical left’s favorite causes: anti-capitalist, pro-union, open borders, anti-war, anti-police causes. The day after the Trump rally the group was holding a forum entitled “Taking Action to Support Palestine.”
They sound like a swell group of people don’t they?
The group called the protest a “people’s victory” and recruited for the protest in a facebook post on Thursday.
“Stand with All Immigrants, Muslims and People of Color! Shut Down White Supremacy! Spread the word. Organize everyone you can and get them to this very important protest. Everywhere Trump goes he and his racist mob must be shut down by the people!” the post read.
Another group identified by the Daily Caller was the Illinois Coalition of Immigrant and Rights Reform.
This group was not only instrumental in creating not only the most radical local immigration ordinance but championed the case which inspired the DREAM Act.
In 2011, Cook County became the first locality to stop cooperating with the federal government on detainers; detainers became controversial among leftist groups when their use skyrocketed under the now discarded Secure Communities program.
Detainers are holds that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) places on state prisoners who they think also violated immigration law and the hold normally gives the federal government up to two extra days to get any prisoner who would otherwise be released.
Denny McCann was killed in June 2011 when an illegal alien driving about three times the speed limit didn’t stop and dragged him about two hundred feet when Denny was crossing the street. The illegal alien, Saul Chavez, was released from prison in November 2011, rather than be held for ICE, after this ordinance passed and has escaped and is presumed in Mexico: the most high-profile of numerous cases of murderers, rapists, and gang members all let free rather than deported as a result of that policy.
What a bunch of patriots.
A third group discovered by the Daily Caller was La Raza Chicago.
The Chicago branch of the notoriously radical pro-illegal immigration group had people on site and detailing the events in a post on its site.
The group posted a victory statement on its Facebook page following Friday’s violent action.
“Donald Trump canceled its event Friday night at the University of Illinois at Chicago, for safety reasons, including the thousands of protesters who gathered inside and outside the venue,” read an English translation of what the group wrote in Spanish “protesting his presence, which has already caused confrontations with supporters of Trump and the authorities.”
“Protests by presidential candidate rally had been organized for days by a coalition of activists, students, religious and political city, including numerous Latino organizations and African-American (organizations.),” the group added.
There can no longer be any doubt that the actions against Trump and his supporters on Friday was a well-organized disruption and not an organic protest.
