++Addition++Throwing Trump supporters to the wolves doesn't appear to have been the result of incompetence or ineptitude. It looks like it was premeditated and intentional. See here.
My initial reaction to Milo Yiannapolous being assaulted at De Paul while security personnel stood by idly was that I was watching a Cathedral tactic in its seminal stages.
This reaction has been confirmed in San Jose, with widespread instances of peaceful Trump supporters being viciously assaulted by hordes of swarthy miscreants:
Trump has largely neutralized the Watsoning method. By doubling down instead of prostrating themselves, dissidents are realizing that the cause isn't as hopeless as they thought it was a year ago. The Alt Right is skinning alive the quisling cuckservatives who had helped maintain the climate that kept dissidents in fear. The Cathedral is being assaulted from several sides and the standard responses aren't stopping the onslaught.
So this is next. The Cathedral will simply allow physical violence to be perpetrated against dissidents. Out in the open, in plain sight. Soft intimidation will be replaced by hard intimidation. The dissidents may have found intellectual courage--now they're going to have to find physical courage.
Winter is coming. Bring it on.
