(Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has canceled an Ohio rally because of security issues at the venue, the news website reported on Saturday.

Eric Deters, a local spokesman for Trump’s campaign, said the candidate’s secret service security detail could not complete its preparation work in time to hold the event at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, the website said.

Ohio is among five states holding primary elections on Tuesday. A Trump rally in Chicago was called off on Friday after scuffles between Trump supporters and protesters.

    I wish that Trump had the moral courage to address the violence at his events. He should have spoken out against such behavior long ago, instead of pretending that punching protesters in nose was acceptable behavior. Shame on him and his legion of supporters who also condone such behavior.

    Left wing mobs shutting down free speech.

    • Independent1 says:

      Violence begets violence. And Trump incited violence against protestors from the beginning of his rallies with comments like: “If I’d been down there with that protestor I would have punched him in the face.” And “In the old days, when someone was removed from a rally they didn’t come back.” Clearly meaning they were beaten badly enough that they would no longer choose to come back.

      And Trump has no right to be suppressing the free speech of protestors in the first place by having them violently ejected from his rallies. The rallies of every other presidential candidate get protestors but it’s only the Trump rallies that have a history of using violence against those protestors to eject them from the rallies- WHY IS THAT??

      And to be quite honest, given the danger to their lives that Trump’s hate rhetoric puts millions of non-white minority American citizens into, Trump should be arrested for putting these people’s lives in danger just like someone who yelled ‘Fire’ in a crowded movie theatre.

      • Otto T. Goat says:

        You want to arrest people for free speech. You are totalitarian scum.

        • Independent1 says:

          Speech is not free speech when what is said puts other people’s lives in danger. Millions of Hispanics and Muslims’ lives are now in danger from the Trump loyal zealots. There have already been instances of people being badly injured by people carrying out actions incited by Trump. It’s even gotten down to the school level where white kids are bullying minorities because of what they’ve heard reported about Trump’s speeches.

          • Otto T. Goat says:

            You don’t even know what free speech is.

          • Independent1 says:

            You’re the one who doesn’t know there are limits to “free speech”. Yelling ‘Fire!’ in a crowded movie theatre for example isn’t free speech and will get you thrown in jail. And Trump’s hate rhetoric is akin to yelling ‘Fire!’ in a movie theatre.

          • Otto T. Goat says:

            No it’s not. Everything he’s said is constitutionally protected, which bothers you, because liberals hate the First Amendment.

          • Independent1 says:

            We’ll see there lowlife!! All some of the victim’s have to do is join a class action suit against Trump as evidence is clear the crimes committed against them were inspired by Trump’s hate rhetoric. And wouldn’t that be great?? A presidential candidate being sued in a class action lawsuit for inciting hate crimes ( of course that’s fairly typical of the GOP – kill the peons any way you can:):

            Attacks on Muslims across the country as Trump rhetoric puts
            them in ‘the line of fire,’ congressman says:

            From sea to shining sea you have Muslim’s under attack.

            In New York City, a shop owner was savagely beaten Saturday by a stranger promising to “kill Muslims.” In California, a man was playing volleyball and praying in a park on Sunday when a woman accused of him of being a terrorist, struck him and splashed him in the face with coffee. And in Philadelphia, a severed pig’s head was tossed outside of a mosque on Monday.

            .”On Wednesday, a Muslim American congressman linked the “rise in Islamophobia” — including a death threat he received on Monday — to the “demagoguery” of Donald Trump.

            “You have other politicians who are joining the bandwagon and who are fanning the flames of bigotry,” Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.) told interviewer Jake Tapper. “That concerns me because we’re putting people — i.e. Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus and others — into the line of fire exposing them to death threats, discrimination at the workplace and assaults.

            And that article doesn’t cover the homeless Hispanic man in Boston who was severely beaten and urinated on by to you fellows in a hate crime because of Trump’s hate rhetoric against Hispanics. And there are more.

            Where do you get this nonsense?

            It is more like the minorities are bullying the white kid!
            AND I am not a racists nor bias!
            Trump is not the problem.
            Read my post just posted!
            Wake up to the truth!

            Total BS!! I wouldn’t waste my time responding any further to an idiot such as yourself!! Anyone who thinks it’s minorities harassing white’s is dumber than dumb!!! Just like Otto!!!

          • Independent1 says:

            Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump refused to take any blame for the behavior of children across the country who are using his anti-immigrant platform to taunt other kids.

            Journalist Cokie Roberts raised the issue during an interview with Trump on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, questioning him about incidents in which children reportedly told their classmates they’d be deported if the business mogul wins the presidency, and about white high school students who reportedly chanted “Build a wall!” to a rival, largely Latino high school.

            Donald Trump Bristles At The Idea He’s Inspired Kids To Act Racist

            Sure, the great oppressed majority. In White rule Apartheid South Africa. In a Sunni dominated Iraq under Saddam Hussain, yes. But when has that ever happen in America outside of a RW propaganda mill? The answer is never. The truth is Trump is scapegoating, and making excuses for the lack of economic progress for a faction of poorly educated Whites that feel as though they are owed some form of preference they are not receiving. The truth is, it’s not Mexicans taking their jobs, or protesters taking their precious Donald’s freedom of speech. The harder truth is, in a Capitalistic Society the vaunted free market simply doesn’t deem them worth all that much to employers trying to increase their bottom lines. And now they’re mad and crying about it, instead of putting in the personal sweat to make themselves more valuable in the marketplace. If the truth hurts, it’s because it is true, and good medicine, if hard to take.

      • Otto T. Goat says:

        There is no free speech right to disrupt a Trump event.

        • Independent1 says:

          Of course there is! What kind of a moron are you?? Free speech is free speech. Trump doesn’t have the right to say anything he wants without giving others the opportunity to disagree.

    • Independent1 says:

      Oh! and as I mentioned to Paulyz, Ted Cruz today in responding to the violence at Trumps rally in Chicago got it right when he deplored the violence shown by protestors but said the responsibility for the violence lies with the guy at the top – Meaning Trump!!!

      • Otto T. Goat says:

        The responsibility lies with the mob of leftists and the leftists who encourage, organize, and fund them.

        • Independent1 says:

          Just more of your racist, white supremacist garbage.

          • Otto T. Goat says:

            Free speech is white supremacist now. Makes sense, judging by the mob at the Trump event blacks and Mexicans don’t respect free speech.

          • charleo1 says:

            If some buffoon comes against me, or my people, and I take it to the streets, unless I’m living in Iran, Saudi Arabia, or China, I got a Right, Buster. It’s in the Constitution/ Look it up. That’s the problem with you RW Lunies. You go around spouting about your freedom, and liberty. Then show yourselves to have not the first idea what either concept is about. Here’s a clue. If Trump can bust my head open for openly disagreeing with him to his face, in his venue, in front of his supporters, he can do likewise when the day arrives you disagree with him, and he comes after you. I swear you people are as dumb as a box of rocks, if you fail to get that.

          • Otto T. Goat says:

            You don’t have a right to disrupt Trump’s rallies.

          • charleo1 says:

            That’s kind of the point with regard to Trump, and my Rights. They all seem to be suddenly up for renegotiation.

  3. Otto T. Goat says:

    Mexican mafia were in the crowd, why is that.

    • Independent1 says:

      Like Cruz said: Trump is responsible for inciting all the backlash he gets from his gutter racist hate rhetoric!!

  4. Otto T. Goat says:

    Great picture of the anti-Trump mob in Chicago.

  5. tbs says:

    These protesters were and are being paid off by: Sanders, George Soros, GOPe, Romney, Jeb Bush,Cruz, Rubio, lobbyists, PACs, liberals, and whoever does not want Trump to win!
    The big cheeses met in Sea Island, Ga., to discuss how they could still nominate the president THEY want…NOT who WE THE PEOPLE want!
    This protester claim was one way they could do it. Then the blame would be placed on Trump for his rhetoric on saying punch in the face etc.
    Let me tell you something…Trump is right that was how it use to be done! I lived in Chicago when JFK ran for President and witnessed the riots started over not having JFK for President because he was Catholic!
    Imagine for being Catholic??!!
    There were bully sticks hitting the rioters, arrests of all these rioters and taken away in paddy wagons etc. More hurt and stomped on than you would believe! It was awful! But it was controlled by arresting these protesters. No one called anything off to protect the people and it was not safe to go anywhere near those areas for several days!
    So that said, last night was professionally organized with students/people being PAID off to do this (and probably told not to get rough). When asked the protesters could and would not say why they were protesting, because they were paid, and really did not know either. The greed of the almighty dollar given by George Soros (backer of Obama and Hillary) and Sanders, (who had posters) saying vote for Sanders! These selfish, spoiled, disrespectful students/people, misused their freedom of speech/protesting, because they were paid, to do it! In turn they should have been arrested because they stopped voters, who had driven miles, stood in line for hours and wanted to hear Trump (to see if they wanted to vote or not for him) and took their freedom away to do so.
    BUT most of all, Trump showed his compassion (with working with the police) to call the rally off so no one would get hurt! Where is the credit there?
    Mean bullying disgusting rotten money hungry politicians? AND this is what we want to control our voting and lives to become a One World Order and North American Union to have open boarders and lose our freedom, be government controlled in everything we do including our money?
    If so then know: This is what OLD EUROPE was that instigated the migration of our Great, Great Grandparents. They immigrated, became legal citizens, worked VERY hard (some for no money but for a meal), learned English, respected the laws and flag, for freedom to get away from (what is going on in this country NOW) to live a clean, prideful, law abiding, respectfully free life!
    Our government has institagated these protests from ALL the riots that have been going on And NOT controlling them. AND Hillary is following through with OB’s agenda?
    God bless this country as we need it more than ever. God bless a Trump (with God’s help) win and set this country to be “Great Again,” AND we NEVER forget how close we are to losing it! Vote!

    • Independent1 says:

      Just more of your lunatic garbage. You need to go see someone about the fantasies you create in your own mind. Those protestors are being driven to be violent by the violence that Trump has incited in his followers and shown to what were peaceful protestors since day-one of his presidential candidacy rallies.

    • charleo1 says:

      Where’s the checks? How are all these complicit conspirators keeping the checks, or payoffs hidden? It’s claptrap to disguise the very predictable reaction to one of the most divisive, disgusting Presidential campaigns in National history.

    • Floridatexan says:

      Oh…I’m voting, all right, but NEVER for Trump. How you can’t see that he’s a FASCIST is absolutely frightening.

  6. charleo1 says:

    Hey! Maybe Trump could build a wall around his rallies, and make the protesters pay for it? Having told the mob if they commit acts of violence against those who dare disagree,
    with him, he will pay their legal bills. This all part of his plan to make America great again.
    So if it’s organized, so what? Although nothing so far has shown the protests to be anything but people being energized against hate speech, and demonstrating such. They are hurting the country Trump claims, by interrupting his rantings? Well Fidel, how is that all working out in Cuba? Well known fact about interrupting Castro’s 6-10 hour spiels he used to give in the 60s, and 70s. You did, and you wound up in a Cuban prison as an enemy of the revolution. Hurting the Country, in Fidel’s rule of law opinion. So we can under President Trump be as great as Castro’s Cuba one day.
