Will the Trump Campaign, Indeed the Republican Party, Survive?

It has gotten completely and totally out of control. Some, like Van Jones, are calling for Trump to suspend his campaign, but that will make a bad situation a thousand times worse.

More here. Makes you wonder who is really behind this:

The protests at Mr. Trump’s rallies have increased and so has the pushback surrounding them. One protester in North Carolina this week was sucker-punched by a rally attendee. Mr. Trump, the front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, has insisted that he does not condone the violence but has said that in the “good old days” protesters were roughed up to keep them in line.

Trump supporters, some of whom had waited in the stands here for hours, appeared stunned by what had happened, and some shouted at members of the news media and the vocal group of protesters.

Mr. Trump said he decided to cancel the event because “people would have been potentially very badly hurt.”

“I don’t want to see people hurt,” he said in an interview with Chris Matthews on MSNBC.

This is somewhat reminiscent of the riots of 1968.

We will have to see what happens. Whether or not this is a game changer remains to be seen.
