A pattern emerges.

A Las Vegas rally for Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump turned ugly Monday night, the eve of a Republican presidential debate, after multiple protesters interrupted the candidate’s speech.

According to reporters at the event, held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino, protesters clashed with security guards as they were escorted from the room. Some of the protesters appeared to be Black Lives Matter activists and gun control supporters.

At one point, as security guards attempted to remove a black man from the rally, an attendee said, “Light the motherfucker on fire!”

More color from MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin:

This isn’t the first time a rally for Trump has turned ugly. A black protester was hit, kicked and pushed to the ground at a rally in Alabama last month.

During his speech, which lasted for more than an hour and was generally well received by a large crowd, Trump basked in the glory of new polling data showing him advancing his lead over his rivals for the GOP nomination. He said he was going to win in Iowa and do so “big” in New Hampshire, promising he would “never be a politician.”

“This is not going to be a waste of anybody’s time,” Trump said of his campaign.

Of his surging rival, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who appears poised to overtake Trump in Iowa, the businessman had only pleasantries.

“I like Cruz, he’s a good guy,” Trump said.

Trump criticized politicians for being beholden to well-funded super PACs.

“The super PACs totally control the candidate,” he said. “That’s what sick about the system.” 

Most of his derision, however, was centered on the press, which was penned in a holding area near the back of the room.

“I staged that,” Trump said at one point, as security guards escorted a protester out of the event. “It was the only way I could get the cameras to pan the crowd.”

He misstepped near the end of the speech, when he urged residents of Nevada, which holds caucuses, to vote in a primary.

“When you have your primary, go out and vote please!” Trump said, garnering cheers and applause.

    Fascism is a progressive construct. It stretches back as far as the French Revolution. It’s alive and well today, thanks to the Democrats.

    Donald Trump is a notorious extremist.

  • AlanMacDonald

    Trump would be too dangerous a loose-canon for the ruling-elite of this modern Disguised Global Capitalist Empire to allow in the figure-head office of Faux-Emperor/president of America — the current ruling-elite of this first “truly global Empire” have learned on the dimes of the German industrial/militarist business elite of the 1930′s that hiring a real nut as the phony ‘leader’(fuhrer in German) as their chancellor/president proved to be their undoing when the nut-case got too popular and they lost control of their political puppet.

    So, Yes, truthseeker, Trump is too dangerous and “noxious an extremist” to be placed in office — as can already be seen by the Empire’s media/propaganda-sector starting to work on getting him out of the #1 spot in the ‘clown car’ of neocon ‘R’ Vichy party candidates for the role of a new Marshall Petain (who was the Nazi Empire’s stooge president of Vichy France).

    I find it interesting to speculate, but perhaps a moot point, of whether the ruling-elite of the current Disguised Global Capitalist Empire HQed in, and merely ‘posing’ as, our former country, had initially considered Trump as a possible leader/fuhrer who had become quickly recognized as too similar to a Hitler-like nut, or whether ‘the Donald duck’ was already known to be too crazy to use as anything but a foil, implant, and agent procateur to just get the lumpen proletariat fired-up, and with the percocieved purpose of shoring the duck later to get a more controllable stooge installed

    Please explain how “fascism is a progressive construct.”

    In all my 40 years of vigorously studying history, I’ve never heard that until the past 7 years or so. Strangely, it only comes from conservatives, not academics.

    Contrary to what most people think, the Na*is were ardent socialists (hence the term “National Socialism”). They believed in free health care and guaranteed jobs. They confiscated inherited wealth and spent vast sums on public education. They purged the church from public policy, promoted a new form of pagan spirituality, and inserted the authority of the state into every nook and cranny of daily life. The Na*is declared war on smoking, supported abortion, euthanasia, and gun control. They loathed the free market, provided generous pensions for the elderly, and maintained a strict racial quota system in their universities — where campus speech codes were all the rage. The Na*is led the world in organic farming and alternative medicine. Hitler was a strict vegetarian, and Himmler was an animal rights activist.

    You can read the rest for yourself from Jonah Goldberg’s excellent primer on the subject, “Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning”.

  • kevinzeese

    This is such right wing nonsense, not surprising from Jonah Goldberg. It is the opposite of the truth. Hitler sought to destroy the left Socialists and Communists. Here’s a bit of history for those not biased toward right wing nonsense. Fascism does link corporations and government so I can see why some get confused, but socialism is not at all the same thing.

    You can educate an imbecile but you can’t make him wise.

  • RiverMikeRat

    Contrary to conservative lies, Hitler added the word “socialist” to his party’s name to garner more support from the “common man.”

    By your way of thinking, East Germany was, and North Korea and China are, ardent democratic countries, considering their official names:
    German Democratic Republic.
    People’s Democratic Republic of Korea.
    People’s Democratic Republic of China.

    The confiscation of personal wealth was from Jews and other “undesirables/untermenschen” not the general public.

    The vast sums they spent on “education” was actually spent on propaganda and brainwashing of the children.

    They were ardent nationalists.

    The SS promoted a pagan belief system, not the Nazi party.

    The only gun control the Nazis supported was that every “true German” household was required to won at least one gun to defend the “Vaterland.”

    They led the world in organic farming and alternative medicines because they needed the food and drugs.

    Himmler was a chicken farmer and a sociopath.

    Do yourself a favor: Don’t try to argue history with someone that studies it on a daily basis. Especially that time frame.

  • RiverMikeRat

    I know, but, for your sake, we will keep trying. At least to educate you.

  • Estrella de David

    You have no idea how acutely depressing it is to realize we’re from the same species.

  • Jonah Goldberg??

    My god, talk about a wanker.

    By the way, why do you remove the letter “z” from the word “Nazi”?

  • AlanMacDonald

    Kevin, thanks for the background on Jonah Goldberg, as I had no idea who this disqus disguised ‘private identity, “just live with it”‘ troll was.

    I had tried to figure out the nom de troll of this obvious deceiver (or historically stupid) cover-up artist was by looking up his/her disqus identity to no avail.

    Quite obviously anyone who honestly thought that the Nazi Empire was “socialist” is either totally uninformed and ignorant of left / right political structures, or is just trying to disguise reality — as this current Disguised Global Capitalist Empire is trying to disguise itself behind the Vichy facade of American faux democracy.

    BTW, Kevin, I also had no idea who the actual Jonah Goldberg was, even after you ‘outed’ him — which is perhaps a good indication of how totally void and ineffective his media/propaganda role is in fronting for the Empire that employs him as a troll. Jonah’s impact on anyone, despite his desperate attempts in writing and on Fox excrement TV, are as quiet, ineffective, and silenced as if he was actually inside a whale.

    It is becoming more obvious every day that the lunatic, pro-war, neocon right is under some degree of extreme pressure in carrying out their ‘role’ of behind the scenes war cheer-leaders, and of having to ‘disguise’ their real identical — as Jonah does here by hiding behind the facade of a phony disqus non-identity overtly, or as war cheer-leader and cookie girl Victoria KAGAN Nuland did covertly by omission in hiding the name of her dealt PNAC founding husband, Robert Kagan, who certainly is getting close to the ‘leader’ (fuhrer) himself in causing millions of deaths in the still expanding Middle East wars of “The Pentagon’s New Map” aka, ‘The Global Empire’s New Map’.

    It is clearly a good sign and good news that the most deceitful pro-war, pro-tyranny, pro-elitist, and Pro-EMPIRE tiny minority of ‘Empire-thinkers’ are having to disguise themselves more and more each day — as it foreshadows the fast approaching and truthful revelation that they will never be able to continue ‘disguising’ this effing Disguised Global Capitalist EMPIRE from ‘we the people’ once awakened!

  • AlanMacDonald

    Hey, troll, look at the bright side —- you’re not!

  • AlanMacDonald

    And you can ‘expose’ an Empire troll, but you don’t have to use violence against this stinkin’ Disguised Global Capitalist Vempire — all you have to do to destroy it is ‘expose’ it to the sunlight.

  • Estrella de David

    Lisa, there’s no need for you to blaspheme, at this point.

    Is your wanker assertion first hand experience or masturbatory fantasy?

    The missing z is to evade the removal of my comments by sites that are anti First Amendment.

  • Estrella de David

    Ouch! Your comeback is so pithy. Only four days to think of it. Bet that increases your IQ in to mid double digit range.

  • AlanMacDonald

    Lisa, congrats to you and Kevin for even knowing who Jonah Goldberg was (maybe is).

    This guy has got to be the lowest profile and least effective troll for the Empire I’ve never even heard of before today.

    Whatever the Empire is paying this ineffective propagandist — it’s far too much, eh?

  • Estrella de David

    “…Disguised Global Capitalist Vempire …”

    Now that’s funny. I’m going to steal that one. Don’t worry, I’ll fix your typo and give you attribution.

  • AlanMacDonald

    Don’t flatter yourself Jonah, I was doing more important things than worrying about your too obvious and ineffective trolling over the weekend.

    Kevin’s exposure was the only thing that caught my eye and prompted my return here.

  • Estrella de David

    A quick retort? I must have made a mistake in my initial assessment of you. I’ve been bested and feel like you’ve put me in my place. I’ll now slink away like a troll and return to my toll bridge duties.

    Shalom

    Na (national socialism) is what Israel is. With free health care and guaranteed jobs to ‘diaspora’ claimants and is specifically purging all narratives to the contrary. What is sad is collecting 3.1 billion a year on US tax payers for ‘national socialism’.
    The left are evolving with reality and the conservative are too obtuse to see reality at face value. For example: abortion is practically suicide. Because to have children is procreation and like a ‘cell-division’ the initial life is giving a portion of itself to live into the next generations. That is an evolution of knowledge to comprehend those facts. That evolution of comprehension supersedes belief, politics or even rules of law. Not that anyone can force a person not to abort but to educate the children, the mind and give people a shot at straight answers will assist many in making solid choices. Just like supporting the apartheid should end immediately as it is being found out, that the oppression is biased and the support by politicians for such a divide is why ISIL even exists..
    .
    Now that is the liberal approach; facts before fiction
