A crowd of pro-Hillary Clinton supporters and illegal immigration activists began a violent protest against Donald Trump campaign donors, spitting on, beating and chasing the Trump supporters during a fundraiser in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Friday night, but the news media covering the event  may be complicit by failing to cover the true scope of the violence and its connection to Hillary Clinton presidential run.

While Trump spoke about helping African Americans, Latinos and other minorities to stop the vicious cycle of poverty and voting for Democrats who keep them in poverty, protesters were beating on the doors of the Minneapolis Convention Center where the Republican candidate was hosting a dinner for GOP donors.

When the attendees began to leave the convention they were met by hordes of protesters who spit on them and punched or kicked them. The protesters screaming epithets at the Trump donors actually forced them to run while the anti-Trump fanatics entered the building and stormed the Donald Trump motorcade. Many, including elderly men and women, were seen being punched and pelted with garbage. One 75-year-old man was allegedly robbed. As is usual at Democratic Party “street theater” events, American flags were burned. Protesters went as far as jumping on the hood of a Secret Service SUV in Trump’s motorcade as the candidate was leaving the building.

Officials from the Minneapolis Police Department admitted no arrests were made despite the violence.

The original protest was held throughout the day on Friday prior to the Donald Trump appearance. During the day, the news media claimed the protesters were peaceful, but a police officer who was also an attendee at the Trump event said the crowds carrying Hillary for President and other Democratic placards were seen blocking traffic several times at several locations.

According to the local news media such as the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the demonstration was organized by the Minnesota Immigrants Rights Action Committee (MIRAC), reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The MIRAC press release states: “[We] is an organization that organizes the immigrant community and their allies to try to win legalization for all and equality in all aspects of life. We struggle for legalization, for a moratorium on raids and deportations, and for drivers licenses for all regardless of immigration status. MIRAc was formed in Spring 2006 out of the huge immigrant rights marches. We’ve organized many protests, marches and other activities for immigrant rights in Minnesota since then.”

Many of the news media covering the story appear to be siding with the protesters. For example this quote appeared in several news stories: “You’ve got somebody out there saying things that used to only be said in the shadows,” Giselda Gutierrez, a demonstrator who lives in Minneapolis, told the Star-Tribune. “I think what he’s saying represents something pretty dangerous for our country.”

“The media coverage is once again slanted away from the thuggish behavior of the protesters to Trump and his supporters. Has any American been killed or raped by the Trump campaign? But how many American women have been raped and sodomized by illegal aliens? I thought the Democrats cared about women’s issues,” said former police officer Iris Aquino, a Puerto Rican cop who now serves as a security manager.

“Even the video footage seen on the national television news shows doesn’t show the true behavior of these so-called political-activists,” she added.

The aggressive demonstrators reportedly didn’t arrive until later. The later group of protesters hid their faces behind scarves. While police did not respond when Trump’s supporters were accosted, they did spring into action to assist the Secret Service when the crowd turned its attention to the motorcade, breaching security, Gateway Pundit reported.
