Trump Supporters Assault Black Protester: ‘Maybe He Deserved To Be Roughed Up’ (VIDEOS)
Yet another protester is assaulted at a Donald Trump rally.
“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution to establish the dictatorship.”
— George Orwell
During a Birmingham campaign event for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a black male interrupted Trump’s speech shouting “Black Lives Matter,” and allegedly, “F-ck Trump.”
In response, Trump shouted back, “Get him the hell out of here, will you, please?”
Immediately security attempted to remove the protester from the premises — despite a federal court order banning Donald Trump and his staff from interfering with protesters. However, the protester proved resilient, refusing to be removed from the facility by Trump’s security. Agitated by the protester and his refusal to leave the event, several of Trump’s supporters crowded around the man and began to tackle, shove, and kick the protester.
Jeremey Diamond of CNN captured some of this incident on video.

This is not the first physical altercation that has taken place at a Donald Trump campaign event between protesters and his supporters.
On October 23, Ariel Rojasa, a Florida International University senior protested at a Trump rally, and he soon found himself a victim of physical abuse by an angry white male − presumably a Trump supporter − who found no glory in a Latino speaking his mind and claiming his Constitutional right. Rojasa was holding up the letter Q and was one of eight people spelling the word “E-Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y.”
The video below shows Rohasa being “savagely dragged” out the rally by a white man.
Donald Trump and his supporters have a nasty habit of assaulting people who disagree with them.
In August, two brothers, Scott Leader and Steve Leader were arrested for beating and urinating on a homeless Latino man. The Leader’s told authorities they decided to assault the Latino man because they agreed with Trump that Mexicans were gang members, rapists, and drug dealers. A witness to the altercation told authorities the Leader brothers walked away from their act of violence laughing.
According to Raw Story:
“the brothers pleaded not guilty of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault, and battery to intimidate with bodily injury, open and gross lewdness, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and threatening to commit a crime.”
In that same month, Donald Trump had a Univision reporter, Jorge Ramos, removed from a news conference after Ramos had the audacity to question Trump about his immigration policy and divisiveness about Mexicans. In removing Ramos from the new conference, Trump made it clear: He doesn’t give a shit about “freedom of the press.” Just like he didn’t give a rat’s ass when in September his security guard punched a protester for disrupting a political event.
Trump seems to live in a reality that the Constitution only applies to him and his supporters. I find this sickening. Worse still is the media’s reluctance to call a spade a spade. Donald Trump is a racist with neo-Nazi tendencies, which is a threat to our democracy. Several of his supporters are highly dangerous individuals, yet we are told to worry about radical Islamic terrorism and Syrian refugees instead of worrying about actual violence in our country, violence supported by a man running for president. Better yet, let’s be worried about the non-violent actions of Black Lives Matter instead. Something Trump and other Republican candidates like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie love to do.
Truthfully, all forces of radicalization are a danger to a society, and the media should not pick and choose based on click bait and advertisement funds, which places democracy in a peril state.
Honestly, I do not care about his beliefs, values, and policies (actually I do). What I care about his affinity for violence while seeking the highest office in the land. If not addressed soon, Trump and his racist supporters shenanigans will be as dangerous as Islamic terrorism is to western societies.
The Republican Party, in particular, should be ashamed because they’ve bred this mentality of us versus them. And they continue to be silent on these brutalities that Trump thrives on. I mean, why wouldn’t Trump bask in this, he’s ranked number one in the GOP presidential primary polls currently.
On the recent incident in Birmingham, Trump told Fox News the “Black Lives Matter,” protester deserved to be “roughed up” a little. [Trump’s campaign reached out to CNN stating, “The campaign does not condone this behavior.”]
Plato once said, “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty,” and Fidel Castro said, “The revolution is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.”
Time to wake up America.
