A planned Donald Trump rally in Chicago has been canceled due to large scale protests and violence both inside and outside the arena. It is ongoing as I write.
Make no mistake: These are not angry Republicans who don't want Trump to get the nomination. This is the left showing the same sort of opposition to free speech that we have seen on our campuses. Indeed, it appears that there is some specific participation on the part of the University of Illinois at Chicago (where the venue is located although this is an urban area as opposed to an isolated campus.)
I have said it before; I am not a Trump supporter, but this is a punch in the face to free speech. There were several thousands of people who had come to listen to Trump. Their rights were denied just as much as Trump's. Once again, the left has resorted to mob rule. Another black eye for Chicago's mayor, Rahm Emanuel.
Just this week, Hillary Clinton issued critical comments about Trump's campaign because there were a couple of punching incidents at his rallies. So what will she say now?
Incidents like these will not help Hillary Clinton or whoever the Democrat nominee is. Just like 1968, the public will take note.
