First of all, this is not my admittedly partisan opinion only. Here's an article from Fox News which quotes the other GOP candidates still in the field stating how they feel: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/03/12/republican-rivals-say-trump-c...
Please note this quote within the article: "Rubio on Friday pointed out to reporters that there isn’t violence at his campaign rallies nor are there any incidents for Cruz, Kasich and Democratic presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. 'There is only one candidate that has violence at his events. I think potentially some of the rhetoric he has used contributed to this environment and it’s disturbing,' Rubio added."
And Cruz stated: “The candidate [The Donald, of course] urges violence to punch people in the face. This is not going to be the last incident...this is not how our politics should occur.”

Sadly, any attention given to The Donald's campaign -- even negative attention -- seems to just give him more support. As The Donald stated himself back in January, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters,"
Personally, I would take The Donald's statement one step further. IMHO -- with the type of voter he attracts, if The Donald, indeed, did actually shoot someone himself, he would probably attract MORE voters -- albeit for all of the wrong reasons.

Even worse, when it comes to how The Donald views his statements and policies which have severely reinforced divisions within American society, The Donald is in Egypt. Here's another direct quote. When asked back in October on CNN if his Presidency would bring about an era of bipartisanship in D.C., The Donald actually stated: "I absolutely think so," he said, adding, "I will be a great unifier for our country." As W indicated over in Iraq, "Mission Accomplished."

The Donald encourages violence. This is not just my own, admittedly partisan, opinion Here's what other Republican candidates for POTUS have to say. This is from Fox News: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/03/12/republican-rivals-say-trump-c...
Among other things, here are some quotes from the article: "Rubio on Friday pointed out to reporters that there isn’t violence at his campaign rallies nor are there any incidents for Cruz, Kasich and Democratic presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. 'There is only one candidate that has violence at his events. I think potentially some of the rhetoric he has used contributed to this environment and it’s disturbing,' Rubio added." And Cruz stated, “The candidate [The Donald, of course] urges violence to punch people in the face. This is not going to be the last incident...this is not how our politics should occur.”

The first great irony is that any attention, even negative attention, adds to The Donald's support. As The Donald stated himself, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters,"

The second great irony is that The Donald is in Egypt on this issue. He still sees himself as a great unifier. As The Donald, himself stated, when asked on CNN if his presidency would lead to greater bipartisanship, "The level of hatred between Republicans and Democrats was unbelievable. The level of -- I've never seen anything like it," Trump said. "I'm going to unify. This country is totally divided. Barack Obama has divided this country unbelievably. And it's all, it's all hatred, what can I tell you. I've never seen anything like it...I've gotten along with Democrats and I've gotten along with Republicans. And I said, that's a good thing." Tapper asked Trump if his presidency would result in an era of bipartisanship. "I absolutely think so," he said, adding, "I will be a great unifier for our country." As W's Administration stated in Iraq so many years ago, and with the same level of realism, "Mission Accomplished."
Final note: typical partisan Republican strategy is to blame everything on Obama, And The Donald claims to be so different? And bipartisan? Really???

So you're saying that Republicans/conservatives will not resort to violence at rallies of their opposition?

Read what Rubio and Cruz said!

I have not investigated the situation at the canceled event, but, in the past, when peaceful protesters have been at rallies for The Donald, he has stated, himself. that he feels like punching them in the face. Has any other candidate for POTUS made such an inflammatory statement? The Donald, by his statements, is giving his supporters encouragement and excuses for doing violence. I'd be willing to bet that many of those who became violent are supporters of The Donald!

My main point is the hypocrisy of The Donald's delusion -- claiming that he, of all people, would unite the nation better than any other candidate or POTUS ever, when he can't even unite the Republican Party! And he has the temerity to call Obama divisive? Give me a break!

have been held? And whose rallies are the only rallies -- so far -- where people have become violent? Violence may occur anywhere, it is true. But, only one candidate for POTUS in 2016 encourages violence -- no other Republican; no Democrat -- only The Donald!

Thought the first one was lost. Did a similar post again.
Sorry for the double post.

Happening again!

The Moneychangers will never let Bernie be president for the simple fact that he can't be
bought!

Hope I didn't offend anyone!

Trump says he can't be bought either. Does this mean he won't be POTUS?

Yes
