Liberal activists have created a tense and violent-prone environment outside rallies for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for weeks. That potential for violence came to a head in New Mexico yesterday when a disabled Trump supporter attending a rally in a wheelchair became the subject of a violent assault.

As the Associated Press reports, Trump supporters were “taunted” by the crowd outside the Albuquerque Convention Center, but one disabled man got the brunt end of the liberals’ wrath:

Some protesters even threw water bottles and water at the Trump supporters as they walked along a sidewalk leading to the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Dereck Scott of Albuquerque was among those who were hit with a plastic bottle.

Scott, who is in a wheelchair, said the attack was unprovoked and unnecessary. He says he has a right to vote for the candidate he prefers.

Protesters chanted “walk of shame” and called Trump supporters racists. Their boos escalated when any Trump supporters believed to be minorities walked by.

Albuquerque police say they used smoke grenades to disburse a crowd of angry protesters outside a Donald Trump rally after demonstrators threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other debris at officers.

Initial indications were that it was tear gas, but an officer said police used smoke and some pepper spray as the protesters became violent.

The unruly crowd overran police barricades earlier in the night and overturned trash cans as Trump spoke to some 4,000 supporters inside the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Some protesters were also escorted out of the event after interrupting the candidate’s speech.
