We oftentimes in our country's history choose the wrong path. We always seem to get back on the right path eventually, but in the 1960s, before there was Kevlar, people were assassinated.
I told you yesterday that Donald Trump is now wearing a bullet-proof vest. He has Secret Service all over him. If this were 1968, would Donald Trump be alive today? I don't know.
Has our Secret Service stopped violence that we don't know of? Would Barack Obama be alive today? Would Ted Cruz be alive today? Would we be alive today?
That's the only thing stopping us from 1968 all over again --- the assassinations.
In 1968, a feminist went into Andy Warhol's art studio and gunned him down. A few months later, Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down. It was madness.
And there were people --- the Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, SDS -- the same group of people, really, they were planning for the convention, the Democratic Convention of 1968. And they were planning for a riot at the convention. The police were called, and Chicago streets were full of blood and violence.
Because I'm a student of history, I have been warning since, I think, around 2012. When was the first time I started saying 2016 would be 1968? I think around 2012.
I honestly thought it would come from the left. Who would have seen that the left and the right would actually both be responsible? The ones calling for the day of rage are twofold.
We have the Black Panthers, we have Occupy Wall Street and we also have the Muslim Brotherhood coordinating for their own summer violence and marches on the streets of America. That's all well documented, if anybody cares to look, but nobody in the media has looked.
On the other hand, we now have a super PAC of Donald Trump's speaking out. (I believe that Donald Trump is wrong when he says that Ted Cruz is managing his super PACs. You can't do that legally. I believe he's wrong when he says, "Well, they can go around those laws and they know exactly what's going on, and Ted Cruz can stop those super PACs when and if he wants to." That would be illegal.) But now Donald Trump's super PAC, headed by one of his close advisers --- a guy who was in the Nixon administration, a guy who studies and adores Saul Alinsky, a guy whose nickname is the Dirty Trickster, the guy who was there at Watergate, a guy who really has no principles whatsoever --- he's now running one of Donald Trump's super PACs. And he has started to promote the hashtag #daysofrage.
That's what Chicago was called in 1968. I can't believe that this is actually happening.
He's now been banned on MSNBC because of this. They won't give him any airtime, and we won't give him any airtime here. But I want you to hear what he is saying because we have a choice.
Now, people are saying that we're taking this out of context when I posted some of this stuff last night. They're saying we're taking it out of context. You decide for yourself. Here is Roger Stone on what he's planning this summer.
The fix is in. If Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and the caucuses, we're looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers go all out to cheat, to steal, and to -- and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters, which is why I have urged Trump supporters: Come to Cleveland. March on Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We're going to have protests. Demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in this deal. If you're from Pennsylvania, we'll tell you who the culprits are. We urge you to visit their hotel and find them. You have a right to discuss this if you vote in the Pennsylvania primary, for example, and your votes are being disallowed.
In another cut, he talked about the big steal. He has dubbed this now "the big steal."
This is very Saul Alinsky, this is very Democrat, you know, you dub things. But it's also very Donald Trump, dubbing things --- little Marco, lying Ted --- to help you remember and to train you to think that way. They are now calling this the big steal, Roger Stone is. I don't know how you take that out of context. He is saying that he will give the hotel room numbers of the delegates and you go and you find them.
Now, he does say, "And talk to them." But everything else he's saying, I mean, do you think it's reasonable to give out not somebody's hotel, but their hotel room number and say, "Go get them and talk to them." If you are saying they're stealing something and these are the bad guys that are doing it to you, do you really think that they're going to talk to them?
Is this incitement? Or is this who we are? Is this who you are?
As I said to you a minute ago, this may be what we have been preparing for since 2008. No, I'm sorry. This is maybe, what I've been prepared for. This is what maybe I've been hearing. What I'm supposed to do, and I haven't understood it. And I've argued. This isn't a Martin Luther King movement. This isn't a Martin Luther King movement. I've said this over and over again. And you should hear my prayers. This isn't it. If you think you have it as bad as Martin Luther King did, you're fooling yourself.
But maybe that's not what his plan was. Maybe that's not what he was warning. Maybe he was just saying, "You're going to have to stand in the face of evil." Because I do believe Martin Luther King was right: When there is good versus evil and it is side by side, Americans will always side with good.
And this is not about a candidate. Make no mistake. This is not about a candidate. This isn't about Donald Trump. This is about good versus evil.
I'm wondering if we're supposed to go to Cleveland ourselves. And I don't know what yet --- ring those hotels, stand someplace, arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder, and be immovable. And let them punch us in the face. Let them be violent. Let them be whoever they have to be. And we show that Americans aren't that way. We're not part of that. As they go try to destroy things, shouldn't somebody be standing up and ringing the police? No matter if they're Trump delegates or Kasich delegates or Cruz delegates, but making sure that somebody is standing up in the way. Because, you know, yesterday's monologue was just do it. It was a reminder that nothing happens unless you do it.
This isn't somebody else's battle. The American Revolution was the battle of the farmers. The farmers came up. And many people said, "Who are you to go and pick up a gun against the strongest army in the world?" Well, I believe in this. I don't know. I'm saying this out loud. I'm just thinking out loud. I'm not saying we're going.
I have an advantage. I've never swung a fist before. I'm such a girl, I might pull your hair. But in any fist fight, I lose. I don't even know how to try. So it's easy for me to be nonviolent in a crowd because I'll be cowering and getting hit in the face and there's nothing I can do about it. That's why Martin Luther King trained people. And I don't know if any of us have the discipline to do it. I don't know if anybody truly has the discipline to not swing back.
But what is the point? The point is not to go and stop them and beat them at their own game, the point is to show the difference between good and evil. That's what Martin Luther King was doing. Martin Luther King was showing that we don't have to be this way, and these are the bad guys. We're not the bad guys.
There were those trying to make Martin Luther King look like the revolutionary, look like the bad guy. But when his people stood there --- men and women, preachers, pastors, rabbis --- all stood there and they just took it, they took the fire hose, they took the dogs, they took the beatings with the sticks, and America knew. These were not the bad guys.
And right now, America doesn't know who are the bad guys and the good guys. Nobody knows. Everybody says they're the good guy. Everybody says that. The only way you know who the good guys are in a society like this is to make a very bold statement.
Boy, this is going to be really unpopular. I'm not suggesting we're going to do this. I've been saying for how many months . . . that I think we're going to end up in Cleveland doing something like this. So I just had that feeling, but it didn't make sense until I heard Roger Stone say this yesterday.
Perhaps this is why we went to Birmingham last year. Remember, a lot of that didn't make sense. When I said, "We all have to march together." And remember I said, "We have to have some discipline on this?" And everybody was like, "Glenn, it's just a march down the street." And I'm like, "I know. But it will make sense at some point." Maybe it's this point. And as I said at the beginning, I hope so. Because if it's not, guys, how much worse does it have to get before we stand up?
