I've said a lot of arguably regrettable things in the last few days, but when he has a lone supporter turn up in Auckland who damn near gets assaulted, and people are lowering the discourse to his level - I can't be associated with that.
Physically attacking a person because they voted for one or another candidate can not be condoned. That violates the very principal of democratic elections.
But I fail to see how an attack carried out by someone else can prevent you from voicing your own opposition to Trump.
No , it is possible to condemn violence against individuals while still being able to peacefully demonstrate against their politics.
Like fire bombing an church and spray painting "Trump 2016" on the remains? Or beating and killing people and throwing gas on dark skinned people? Like that? Welcome to Trump's America. Google is your friend (or enemy).
