Neo-Nazis at Trump rally caught on video roughing up black woman: ‘You’re scum, your time will come!’

Published

White supremacists hurled racist and sexist slurs Tuesday afternoon as they pushed a black protester out of a Donald Trump rally in Kentucky.

Videos have circulated of a young woman being pushed and shoved by a screaming man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at the Trump rally in Louisville, and the protester described the experience afterward in a Facebook video.

“I was called a n****r and a c*nt and got kicked out,” said Shiya Nwanguma, a University of Louisville student. “They were pushing and shoving at me, cursing at me, yelling at me, called me every name in the book. They’re disgusting and dangerous.”

The hat-wearing Trump supporter appears to be white nationalist Matthew Heimbach, head of the Traditionalist Worker Party, according to other protesters who spoke with the New York Daily News.

“I watched him for hours recruit Trump supporters with five of his buddies,” said protester Molly Shah. “They later attacked the group I was with. The neo-Nazis threw punches and kicked us.”

A Twitter account maintained by a Traditionalist Worker Party supporter suggests the group attended the Louisville rally and took signs from protesters.

Another protester said the white supremacists purposefully bumped protesters, hit them with signs and stepped on their shoes as they crowded together, waiting for the rally to begin.

“In my entire life I had never had anyone look at me with such hate,” said activist Chanelle Helm.

She said the feeling was eerie and reminded her of historical photos from the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and she said the white supremacists led a chant that chilled her.

“You’re scum, your time will come, you’re scum, your time will come,” Helm said the white nationalists chanted at the demonstrators.

Trump interrupted his speech several times to comment as the demonstrators were led from the rally by U.S. Secret Service agents and Metro Police, complaining that he would be criticized whether he encouraged rough treatment or not.

“Don’t hurt him,” Trump said, as supporters pushed and shoved a black man in the crowd. “See, if I say go get him, I get in trouble with the press — the most dishonest human beings in the world, the worst. If I say, don’t hurt him, the press says, maybe Trump isn’t as tough as he used to be. Can you believe this?”

The forcible removal of protesters has become a regular feature of Trump rallies — and the candidate often encourages violence against them.

“You know what I hate? There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches — we’re not allowed to punch back anymore,” Trump said last week at a rally in Nevada. “In the old days, you know what they used to do with guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks.”

“I’d like to punch him in the face,” Trump added, as the crowd roared in approval.

A group of 30 Valdosta State University students were removed from a rally Monday in Georgia, although the students claim they had not been disruptive.

Trump supporters dismissed concerns about the GOP candidate’s refusal to condemn the Ku Klux Klan and its former leader David Duke, saying the gaffe was a “made-up issue.”

“I don’t believe he’s racist,” said supporter Leone Brown. “I believe he’s a super person.”

Another supporter, a disabled woman who said her friends had lost jobs to illegal immigrants, explained what she liked about Trump.

“We’ve lost our country to everyone else,” said Dianna Burba, a registered Democrat who explained that rural whites had been left behind. “The illegals need to go back where they came from.”

Pro-Trump reporter John Solomon attacks Fiona Hill for debunking his Ukraine conspiracy theories

Published

on

On Tuesday, National Security Council official Fiona Hill testified that the right-wing narrative Ukraine colluded with Democrats to interfere in the 2016 election — rather than Russia working to help Donald Trump — is a "fictional narrative" and a piece of propaganda promoted by Russia.

One person was enraged at this testimony — John Solomon, the notorious right-wing reporter who covered Ukraine's supposed interference in the 2016 election extensively. He fired off multiple angry tweets attacking Fiona Hill:

How dare Fiona Hill question my patriotism or suggest I was part of a Russian disinformation campaign without a single fact. My sources were all US officials or Ukrainian officials aligned against Russia. Her accusations must have made Joe McCarthy smile up from hell.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani accuses Mike Pompeo’s State Department of obstruction of justice

Published

on

Keeping track of the Republican defenses of President Donald Trump got a little more difficult on Thursday when his private attorney appeared to throw his Secretary of State under the bus.

Rudy Giuliani suggested Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may have committed obstruction by refusing visas to three Ukrainians the former New York City mayor wants to testify about conspiracy theories.

"The embassy in Ukraine refuses to give visas for three witnesses, two present prosecutors and the former Prosecutor General, who have direct evidence of major Dem corruption in Ukraine in 2016," Giuliani argued.
