Trump crowds seem like a mix of Abe Simpson, English football hooligans, and a Nuremberg rally." ~twitter~
What's more dangerous? Going to a Katt Williams concert? Going to a Hells Angels rally? Or, going to a Donald trump rally?
Well if you happen to be a woman, or a person of color, you might go with the third choice; the Donald trump rally.
Let's face it, Donald's peeps aren't exactly the kind you would find at the top of the human pecking order. Those folks can be rough. I respect protestors and people who exercise their right to protest, but if you go into a trump crowd and you are planning to peacefully protest, you might want to take out some extra life insurance.
Poor Rakeem Jones was assaulted twice at a trump rally while exercising his Constitutional right to free speech. First by an old geezer who sucker punched him, and then by the police. (Yep, you read that right. He was sucker punched and assaulted, and the po po jumped on him.) And let's be clear, the candidate himself has encouraged his people to antagonize and beat protesters in the past. I think he gets off on this stuff. He has even promised to pay the legal fees of those who break the law. (He can start with the loser who sucker punched Mr. Jones. That clown has been arrested.)
"After his supporters beat up a Black Lives Matter protester on video, Donald Trump suggested that they may have done the right thing.
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." [Source]
But that was just some black man, and no one cares what happens to the black guy. But what if trump's right- hand man finds it necessary to manhandle and assault a white female?
"Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields is discussing her "jarring" physical altercation with Republican presidential front-runner's campaign manager, saying she was "shaken" by the incident.
Fields wrote in a piece published Thursday that she was trying to ask Trump a question about affirmative action during a press conference earlier in the week when she was almost pulled to the ground.
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards," she wrote.
"Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken."
The Washington Post's Ben Terris told Fields that Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, pulled her. Fields said Lewandowski would "be out of line" if he had taken these actions, even if Trump was done taking questions.
"Campaign managers aren't supposed to try to forcefully throw reporters to the ground, no matter the circumstance," she wrote. " [Source]
Yes, but this is no normal "campaign manager"; this one belongs to trump. The guy who said that he could "stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone" and not lose any votes.
I hate to say it, but I think the guy might be right.
The RNC better start looking into some extra security for Cleveland.
