Trump Campaign Officially Endorses Roughing Up Black Protesters

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continued its embrace of a fascist world view when a senior official with the group endorsed roughing up black protestors.

A protester who was roughed up by the crowd at a Donald Trump rally likely deserved his treatment, Trump’s top aide said Tuesday.

“Every now and then an agitator deserves it,” Trump’s senior counsel Michael Cohen said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Cohen’s comments echo the boss’ sentiments. Appearing on Fox News, who has been the number one promoter of the campaign with hours and hours of coverage since he decided to run, Trump said, the protester “maybe should have been roughed up.”

Black Lives Matter activist Mercutio Southall said Trump supporters attacked him and called him racial slurs when he showed up at a Trump event to protest.

Southall is just the latest to feel the wrath of Trump’s most ardent backers, who have been whipped into a frenzy over the last few months to blindly rage at black protesters, Latinos, and Muslims.

Recently immigration activists, angered by Trump labeling Mexicans as criminals and “rapists,” were hit, beaten, and spit upon by Trump supporters when they appeared at his campaign event.

Trump had megastar Latino anchor Jorge Ramos removed from a press conference, and has banned the Spanish-language network Telemundo from covering campaign events.

The candidate’s anti-minority comments do not occur in a vacuum. Trump fans in Massachusetts specifically cited the former reality TV star when they beat up a homeless Latino man.

“Donald Trump was right,” the two men said, according to police, as they beat the man with a metal pipe and then urinated on him. “All these illegals need to be deported.”

After losing the 2012 presidential election, the Republican Party commissioned and released a post-mortem trying to figure out why they lost to President Obama. The report concluded that the party had done a poor job in outreach to minority communities.

Despite this, the party’s front runner has been able to ascend to that status by denigrating other races and cultures. They don’t appear to have learned anything.
