Roger Stone on Trump losing nomination: The Big Steal, Days of Rage, threatens delegates, 1968 references

On Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect Monday, Roger Stone, a former adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, discusses the state of the GOP front-runner’s campaign, the battle for delegates and the possibility of “days of rage” protests at this summer’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

“It entails enormous demonstration,” Stone said. “It could entail protests at certain targeted hotels where delegations who are involved in the ‘big steal’ are staying.”

“It will be non-violent,” Stone added. “It’s a reverse-Alinsky.”

Buzzfeed reports that Stone plans “‘#DaysofRage,’ a seeming reference to the Weatherman-organized Days of Rage protests that took place in Chicago in 1969.'”

Stone expanded on that explanation by saying “he was talking about “rally-protests -at delegate hotels street theater.”

Trump must be getting nervous about not winning the nomination, if his buddy Stone is resorting to this.

Here’s more, via Buzzfeed.

Stone said the campaign was not involved in organizing this, instead saying the protests will be “organized by Trump nation,” but said that “we did inform them.” He said he had “issued the call to action” on Infowars, the Alex Jones-run conspiracy website, on March 30, that they “will stage protests at hotels of state delegates of states supporting the BIG STEAL,” and that he and Jones would be speaking (Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul are both invited).

Stone, the onetime campaign manager for Donald Trump, continued:

“Go to Cleveland. Come to Cleveland. Don’t let the big steal go forward without massive protest. Peaceful, nonviolent protest. So, as they used to say, don’t wait for orders from headquarters. Ride to the sound of the guns. I don’t mean to imply violence on that. I mean: Ride to where the action will be. We have to let the Republican bosses and the kingmakers and the insiders and the lobbyists know that we’re not going to stand for the big steal. So if you are a Trump supporter, make plans now. Take a bus! Hitchhike! Carpool! Take a train! Fly, if you can afford it. We need you in Cleveland.”
