Donald Trump: My Supporters Were Right To Beat Up Black Protester
During a rally in Birmingham, Alabama, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was interrupted by a protester for Black Lives Matter. Trump responded in his typical fashion by trying to belittle the protester and then calling for his followers to “get him the Hell outta here” him.
The protester, a black man, reportedly started chanting Black Lives Matter at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday. In a video captured by CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, rally attendees swarm around the man, kicking and punching him as he curls up on the ground.
Trump was asked to weigh in on his supporters’ actions on Fox & Friends Sunday morning. “Maybe he should have been roughed up,” he said. “It was disgusting what he was doing.”
The Republican frontrunner compared what happened at his rally to a Black Lives Matter protest at a Bernie Sanders event, which prompted the Democratic candidate to release a detailed racial justice plan. “This is not the way Bernie Sanders handled his problem, I will tell you, but I have a lot of fans and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy, a troublemaker, looking to make trouble,” Trump said.
He gave a similarly winking response when his supporters have turned violent in the past. Two men in Boston said they ambushed and brutally beat a homeless Latino man because they were “inspired” by Trump, who later explained his supporters “are very passionate” and “love this country.”

Note From The Editor: "Godwin's law" says who ever calls someone "Nazi" like loses the argument however in a time where fear and economic insecurity is the order of the day men such as Hitler tend to rise to power. Adolf Hitler was an egotistical, charismatic lunatic as well. The Nazi party rose to power with 20 percent of the vote and that is currently where Trump sits in the republican party race. Lets hope history doesn't repeat itself. - J-Didda
