As the candidates get more vicious with their attacks to each other, the fans of Hillary and Bernie get more violent against Trump supporters.

Last night, fights broke out when hundreds of angry and violent protesters showed up at a Trump rally. The protesters threw eggs, intimidated, and in many cases threw punches at the Trump supporters.

We have seen this before, but not like this.

Notice one person wearing a communist shirt and another with a sign saying we need socialism.

Is this the future of the Democratic Party?

Donald Trump is a far cry from a perfect candidate, but his supporters are not violently attacking Bernie and Hillary supporters. A few have hit people inside of the rallies, but nothing like the vicious attacks we are seeing against Trump fans. Hundreds of Trump supporters have been beaten outside of a Trump events so far this year.

The Republican Party has some major issues right now, but with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan saying he will vote for Trump, it looks like things are settling down.

On the left, the Democratic Party is not even denouncing the violence of the protestors, and this is what we are seeing. (CAUTION: VIOLENCE AND EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)

The democratic process has come a long way in America, but we are clearly on the wrong path now.

Everything we are seeing is going to get worse before it gets better. Let’s just hope the leaders on the left start denouncing the violence and abusive language and urge their people to protest peacefully.

Do you think the violence will get worse this summer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Democratic presidential candidate, and self-avowed socialist, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is getting attacked by an unlikely place—the country Denmark.

Sanders has used Nordic countries like Denmark as a leading example of what a socialist United States could look like. The Danes are sick of being called socialist.

“I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism,” said Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, in a speech at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

“Therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”

Rasmussen added that while “the Nordic model is an expanded welfare state which provides a high level of security to its citizens… it is also a successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life as you wish.”

But this isn’t just a fight over semantics—even Forbes magazine recently called Denmark the most business-friendly country in the world in 2014. (The United States ranked a distant 18th.)

The conservative Heritage Foundation also ranks Denmark as the most “economically free” country in the world—a far cry from what Bernie Sanders plans to inflict on the United States.

While Denmark does have a large social welfare net, many of these programs aren’t like the ones Bernie Sanders and his allies on the Democratic Left advocate. They’re not handouts—but some are, rather, programs designed to train the unemployed to do new jobs, meaning they’ll get off the national dole quickly, and back into the workforce.

Denmark also spends heavily on adult education, to ensure that workers don’t get left behind—and can continue to progress in their careers.

Coupled with a flexible labor market, unlike Bernie Sanders’ favored union-backed rigid market, Denmark isn’t the socialist utopia that American liberals think it is. In fact, the Washington Post even admits that Denmark is pretty good at playing the free market game: “This is not big brother socialism,” said the Post. “This is really smart capitalism.”

Bill Gates, the richest man on the planet, thinks you’re selfish if you’re against socialism and the resulting massive tax hikes.

The controversial claims, from someone worth $79.2 billion, came during an interview with The Atlantic, where he said that the private sector was “in general inept” when it came to dealing with global warming.

He admitted that, while the government will also be “somewhat inept,” only socialism could save the planet. Because people are too selfish otherwise.

Gates said:

“There’s no fortune to be made [with climate change technology]. Even if you have a new energy source that costs the same as today’s and emits no CO2, it will be uncertain compared with what’s tried-and-true and already operating at unbelievable scale and has gotten through all the regulatory problems.

Without a substantial carbon tax, there’s no incentive for innovators or plant buyers to switch.

Since World War II, US-government R&D has defined the state of the art in almost every area. The private sector is in general inept.

The climate problem has to be solved in the rich countries. China and the US and Europe have to solve CO2 emissions, and when they do, hopefully they’ll make it cheap enough for everyone else.”

Gates represents a paradox of the liberal Left: someone who’s rich enough to pay, essentially, whatever tax the government can levy. And unleash a cadre of accountants to get his tax rate down.

Someone with more money than they could ever spend in several lifetimes has the luxury of calling for higher taxes to fight a liberal pet issue like climate change.

But it’s troubling that Gates doesn’t seem to have any faith in the private sector to fix the world’s problems, considering his own history of innovation. Microsoft’s computers revolutionized the way the world does business—largely because of free market competition. There’s a reason why computers were invented in the United States, where Gates could be motivated by profit, rather than in Soviet Russia, where there was little incentive to improve or innovate technology.

But now that Gates is retired, and worth more than any other person on the planet, it’s clear that he’s slamming the door on free market capitalism—and slamming Americans’ for being “selfish” by not wanting to pay sky-high taxes.

There’s the run-of-the-mill Democrat politician who doesn’t understand the free market. And then there’s Bernie Sanders, the self-proclaimed “socialist” who represents Vermont in the U.S. Senate.

Sanders, 73, is technically an independent but caucuses with the Democratic minority in the Senate. He’s also running against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for President—so far, her only announced major challenger.

Here was Bernie Sanders’s ridiculous comment on CNBC about how deodorant is causing American children to go hungry:

“If 99 percent of all the new income goes to the top 1 percent, you could triple it, it wouldn’t matter much to the average middle class person. The whole size of the economy and the GDP doesn’t matter if people continue to work longer hours for low wages and you have 45 million people living in poverty. You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right? You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.”

Sanders—as a U.S. Senator, one of the most powerful people in the nation—seems to think that, because some corporation is making money off of deodorant, that’s somehow a net negative for the entire economy.

Newsflash: if there was only one type of deodorant, the only impact it would have on children would be to increase starvation—because the jobs that a business creates while trying to build a competitive product would be gone. And most people would smell substantially worse because, without any competition, the sole remaining deodorant company would be able to charge virtually anything they want for a stick.

Sanders—who, arguably, is the most liberal elected official in America—shows the logical flaws in the Democrats’ complete misunderstanding of economics that’s not always immediately evident, because he takes it to such a leftist extreme. The economy is not a finite pie: when the rich do better, they’re not taking that money directly from the poor. There’s not an exact amount of money that everyone’s fighting for.

In fact, when the rich get richer, everyone gets richer. The rich don’t stuff money in their mattress: their millions and billions get reinvested through the economy, which creates jobs and makes everyone richer.

Unfortunately for “socialists” like Bernie Sanders, if he’s President, we’ll all be worse off economically—rich and poor alike. And we’ll all smell a lot worse, too.
