The protests at the Republican National Convention were fairly tame, much to the dismay of the media and Democrats. The Democratic National Convention, which happens this coming week could be much worse.
Conservative activist and filmmaker Rebel Pundit recently explained why.
From Legal Insurrection:
Are anarchists and radical leftists saving violent protests for #DemsInPhilly?
There were many predictions of violent protests at the Republican National Convention, in light of a series of violent anti-Trump protests around the country.
In Chicago, you will recall, protests organized by MoveOn.org and others caused Trump to cancel his appearance at a major university arena.
As Jeremy Segal (aka Rebel Pundit) [Featured Image] and Andrew Marcus documented, the Chicago protests were led by anarchists, communists, and open borders protesters.
But in Cleveland, almost nothing. There were some feeble protests and a few attempts of intimidation, but nothing near what happened in Chicago or was predicted.
Why is that? Lee Stranahan posed that question to Jeremy Segal (aka Rebel Pundi). I think the answer is spot on: The usual suspects were not in Cleveland.

Will the media report protests at the DNC as zealously as they did at the RNC?
Don’t count on it.
