    I've yet to see a video anywhere of a Trump supporter or group of supporters beating people up because they don't subscribe to their movement. Yet I've seen countless videos of Trump supporters being beaten up for merely wearing a hat.

    So why is it that anti-Trump protestors are significantly more violent? Is it worry that Trump might just win?

    Of course you'll never see news coverage of the assault on Trump supporters by the left-wing media.

    Trump says awful, provocative things and makes people angry, and those people take out their anger on Trump's supporters. I don't condone it but I can understand it.

    Your title presents something as a contradiction that isn't really a contradiction. Bad people can be subject to violence, and indeed often are. All the same I don't really view Trump's supporters - or anyone, for that matter - as irrevocably bad people; I prefer to think of them as unfortunates who have been thoroughly indoctrinated with really nasty ideas.

    Because some lefties are more violent and it's more socially acceptable to hate on someone many people think is racist and stupid and people will assume those characteristics extend to his followers aswell hence the outrage.

    Also, this is the USA were talking about; people are more violent in general in the USA.
