We all know Donald Trump’s rallies can become violent sometimes, we’ve seen it before. A couple of months ago a Black Lives Matter’s protester was beaten up in a rally. Trump felt as if his supporters’ actions were justified. At a rally in October, a Latino man was dragged out of the event by his shirt collar. But never has Trump ever really encouraged it during one of his rallies…until today.
In Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Monday the Republican frontrunner told his supporters to beat protesters if they are seen with tomatoes:
So I got a little notice in case you see. The security guys, we have wonderful security guys. They said, ‘Mr. Trump, there may be somebody with tomatoes in the audience.’
He goes on to say:
So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. OK, just knock the hell. I promise you I will pay for the legal fees. I promise. I promise. They won’t be so much because the courts agree with us, too.
Well, isn’t that presidential?!
Could you imagine the outrage if Hillary Clinton told her supporters to beat up a conservative protester? The right would probably ask for a congressional hearing to investigate Tomato-gate.
The sad thing is that it doesn’t take much for Donald Trump supporters to behave like violent criminals. He knows this and he’s proud of it.
Trump supporters are the worst of the worst. These are the people who sit at home and fume over the government. They are those angry men who walk around complaining about everything and praying for someone to violently overthrow Obama. His supporters are the ones who stand on their front yards and scream at the noisy kids in the neighborhood. And he is encouraging it.
