According to Adbusters, one in four New York City residents is a Democrat. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Republican Party has never in its 150 year history chose to conduct its nominating convention in New York City. So what makes this year different? Two numbers: 9/11.
Given the mass mobilization of left-leaning activists and the very real anger they are about to uncork, I fully expect next week’s events in NYC to make Chicago in 1968 seem tame by comparison, even though it is clear the vast majority of protestors intend to be non-violent.
