Seriously, what can you say about this? Is this how supposedly freedom-loving Americans deal with someone exercising their First Amendment rights?
I don’t know what this woman was protesting or what she did, but this video of the reaction by those in attendance at this Trump rally in Kentucky can be summed up in one word – disturbing.
One of the men who accosted the black female protester is reportedly a member of a racist, white nationalist group. The woman says she was called c*nt and n*gg*r, in addition to other vulgar terms.
Matthew Heimbach, a leader in the Traditionalist Worker Party, a white supremacist group, is believed to be one of the one’s participating in the violent incident. The group also says the woman was not a victim, but instead claims that she was rushing the stage. Even watching their video, it is clear that while the woman was walking towards the stage, but it could in no way be described as “storming.” Notice, however, that there is no denial of the racist and vulgar epithets that the woman said was hurled her way.

Here is the text from the racist group’s Facebook post.
From the video description, confirming that the woman created a violent disturbance before the video featuring her being removed from the venue…
“Woman tells news reporter than she was a victim. When…she was not!!!!!!! Videos of her are now going viral as she plays it out that she was innocent!! She was rushing the stage towards Mr. Trump. Ripping up papers and throwing them, tossing stuff towards him. She also was pushing people, a young man and even an elderly lady got elbowed in the face. I moved the woman to safety and stood in between her. Those gentlemen were simply getting her out!!!!!!! She was starting a fight and then after her escapade…others began.”
Regardless of which candidate you support, the reaction of these individuals is deplorable.
