Another Dude Gets Punched At Trump Rally Because That's What Happens Now
Ain't no thing.
[contextly_sidebar id="LOgvGNF8SzkztAThc03O8n3DxVI7Ga7C"]Ho-hum. Another day in Donald Trump's America, which will be great again once we have sucker-punched or deported or built a wall around allllllllll the people we don't like. Or maybe worse. Nahhhhh, Donald Trump would never rally his supporters into causes so Hitler-esque. OR WOULD HE?
We're probably making a big liberal deal out of this video of a protester being beat the fuck up at a Trump rally in North Carolina:
Here is how the Washington Post describes what happened:
The videos, which appeared on social media early Thursday and are shot from different perspectives, show an African American with long hair wearing a white T-shirt leaving the Trump rally as the audience boos. He is being led out of the rally by men in uniforms that read “Sheriff’s Office.” The man extends a middle finger to the audience on his way out.
Then, out of nowhere, the man is punched in the face by a pony-tailed man, who appears to be white, in a cowboy hat, black vest and pink shirt as the crowd begins to cheer. The protester stumbles away, and then is detained by a number of the men in uniforms, who handcuff him while he is on the ground.
Nice people. Bet they'd be great brunch companions.
[The victim, Rakeem] Jones said he and four friends — a “diverse” group that included a white woman, a Muslim, and a gay man, had gone to the rally as a “social experiment.” He said the woman with them started shouting once Trump’s speech began.
Yeah, we're going to go out on a limb here and say that normal people should no longer go to Trump rallies, even if it's for a "social experiment" or if you're reading about Margaret Mead in your college anthropology class and want to get a closer look. It's not worth it.

There was the hilarious funtimes rally in Birmingham, Alabama, where a black dude got punched while being called "nigger" and "monkey." There was the Las Vegas rally where allegedly tiny-dicked candidate Trump wished out loud that he could punch another protester in the face.
[contextly_sidebar id="KZt2St2bkB0O7MaeTveHK4HHixRVYxlm"]Oh hey, remember that hilarious thing that happened in Boston, when two brothers beat the living shit out of a 58-year-old homeless Hispanic man and broke his nose, and they actually said they were inspired by Donald Trump? No, that doesn't count on our list of things that happen at rallies -- that's what happens when his horse-fucking supporters are FREE RANGE.

Just stay away. As fascinating as the wild animals in the Make America Great Again hats are, and as much as some of them look like sweet Mom 'n' Pop types, they put those warnings on the glass for a reason (or at least they should). Do not feed them. Do not taunt them. And most of all, do not dare be black, gay, Muslim, Hispanic, or any other thing like that.
Ignore them. Most of 'em will die soon, either of old age or in firework accidents.
