A GOP insider in Ohio told journalist Amy Walter that there will be riots in Cleveland if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination or if he doesn’t win the nomination.
With the prospect of a brokered convention threatening to lead to chaos, top Republicans are scared that a floor fight in Cleveland “will leave deep, deep scars” and that the GOP “brand” could be destroyed if Trump comes out on top.
However, one GOP insider went further, telling Walter, “There’ll be a riot in Cleveland if Trump wins the nomination and a riot if he doesn’t.”
In the event of Cruz or Kasich being selected to become the nominee despite losing to Trump in the primaries, Republican voters who feel that they have been disenfranchised may resort to civil disobedience to make their point.
“Nothing screams “establishment” more than a group of hand-picked party people sitting around a convention center and choosing a candidate who came in SECOND place with votes and pledged delegates to be the nominee of the party,” writes Walter.
As we have previously reported, anti-Donald Trump agitators have threatened to stage riots if the billionaire becomes president.
Donald Trump himself also warned that any attempt by the GOP establishment to steal the nomination from him may result in civil unrest.
“I think you would have riots. I think you would have riots,” Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “I think you would see problems like you’ve never seen before. I think bad things would happen. I really do.”
There have already been numerous clashes at Trump events, mostly the fault of Bernie Sanders supporters, but the media has maintained the narrative that it is Trump himself who is inciting violence.
Many of the radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago last month subsequently announced that they were planning a “mass civil disobedience movement” throughout April.
Last night outside a Trump event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania leftists attempted to cause mayhem, forcing riot police to intervene.
