    Are anarchists and radical leftists saving violent protests for #DemsInPhilly?

    Are anarchists and radical leftists saving violent protests for #DemsInPhilly?

    The usual suspects were mostly absent at the RNC in Cleveland.

    There were many predictions of violent protests at the Republican National Convention, in light of a series of violent anti-Trump protests around the country.

    In Chicago, you will recall, protests organized by MoveOn.org and others caused Trump to cancel his appearance at a major university arena.

    As Jeremy Segal (aka Rebel Pundit) [Featured Image] and Andrew Marcus documented, the Chicago protests were led by anarchists, communists, and open borders protesters.

    (Language Warning)

    But in Cleveland, almost nothing. There were some feeble protests and a few attempts of intimidation, but nothing near what happened in Chicago or was predicted.

    Why is that? Lee Stranahan posed that question to Jeremy Segal (aka Rebel Pundi). I think the answer is spot on: The usual suspects were not in Cleveland.

    The question is whether the usual suspects will show up in Philadelphia. Seems more likely to me, particularly after revelations of how the DNC worked against Bernie Sanders.

    Two options that spring to mind on why the Leftists are being so quiet:
    1) An acknowledgement that violent protests will only spur Republican votes in the general election and result in more Republicans in office. This would be the “Delayed-Gratification” theory, which depends on a liberal’s ability to resist being an (censored) in order to gain in the future.

    2) General fear of their normal thuggish behaviour triggering (and I use the word deliberately) an undesired outcome at the Republican convention. Thugs prefer unarmed victims. In this case, the leftists are already in Philly, just awaiting the starter’s pistol before unleashing their vitriol. Thugs gotta thug.

    No mystery why they were few and tame in Cleveland, open carry.
