Trump Mob Attacks Black Man, Chants “All Lives Matter”
23 November 2015
A Black Lives Matter protester went to a Donald Trump rally. He was beaten and choked by several angry Trump supporters. This is becoming a very disturbing trend among the Trump faithful. Cenk Uygur, hosts of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.
“After his supporters beat up a Black Lives Matter protester on video, Donald Trump suggested that they may have done the right thing.
The protester, a black man, reportedly started chanting Black Lives Matter at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday. In a video captured by CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, rally attendees swarm around the man, kicking and punching him as he curls up on the ground.
Trump was asked to weigh in on his supporters’ actions on Fox & Friends Sunday morning. “Maybe he should have been roughed up,” he said. “It was disgusting what he was doing.””*

From daily The Independent in Britain today:
Malala condemns Donald Trump’s ‘tragic’ call to ban Muslims in US: ‘It will radicalise more terrorists’
Nobel Prize winner blasts GOP frontrunner at event to mark one year anniversary of Peshawar massacre
Malala Yousafzai has condemned Donald Trump’s call to ban Muslims from the US for being “full of hatred”, warning comments of this kind will only radicalise more terrorists.
The outspoken billionaire and Republican frontrunner stepped up his controversial campaign rhetoric when he demanded a “total and complete shutdown” until authorities “can figure out” Muslim attitudes to America in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting. His proposal was met by widespread condemnation but Trump has refused to back down, responding to the backlash with a defiant “I.don’t.care” in the days after.
On Tuesday, Yousafzai joined the growing number of voices blasting Trump a day after the Secretary of State John Kerry said his proposal would endanger national security.
The 18-year-old campaigner and Nobel Peace Prize winner survived being shot in the head by Taliban terrorists in Pakistan and now lives in Birmingham.
Speaking ahead of an event in the city to mark the Taliban massacre at a school in Peshawar a year ago that killed 150 school children and teachers, Yousafzai told AFP Trump’s comments were “tragic” and “full of this ideology of being discriminative towards others”.
She warned his calls had wider implications than being discriminatory, telling the Press Association: “So it’s important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it.
“If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism. It will radicalise more terrorists.”
Her father Ziauddin Yousafzai backed his daughter’s stance, telling the audience: “If Americans don’t stand against their own Donald Trumps it (their strategy) will not work.”
Donald Trump will ban the internet and ‘penetrate’ it to find Isis, lays out how in GOP debate. Mr Trump, who is a regular tweeter, complained that the internet was being used by extremists and should be turned off: here.
MICHAEL MOORE: ‘WE ARE ALL MUSLIM’ “Fortunately, Donald, you and your supporters no longer look like what America actually is today. We are not a country of angry white guys. Here’s a statistic that is going to make your hair spin: Eighty-one percent of the electorate who will pick the president next year are either female, people of color, or young people between the ages of 18 and 35.” [HuffPost]

Gael García Bernal: ‘Donald Trump calls Mexicans rapists and drug dealers. It’s hate discourse’. From Che Guevara to the iconoclastic conductor of Mozart in the Jungle, the Mexican star is no stranger to playing fiery revolutionaries. Now he’s ready to rise up against a certain ‘ignorant’ US presidential candidate: here.
Donald Trump has sealed his position as frontrunner after proposing to ban every Muslim from entering the United States.1
The dangerous ideas don’t stop with Trump, however. Ted Cruz refused to condemn Trump’s plan to ban all Muslims.2 Marco Rubio wants your boss to decide if you can have birth control.3 Chris Christie thinks we should be worried that Syrian refugees under five years old may pose a terrorist threat.4 And Ben Carson thinks the minimum wage is too high.5
But here’s the thing: One of them could really become president–Rubio and Carson even lead Hillary Clinton in a recent poll.6 Worse still, Democrats are massively checked out–19% more Republicans than Democrats are “extremely interested” in the election, and that could lead to a real disaster come November 2016.7
Primary elections are starting in just seven weeks, and the stakes are simply too high for you, your friends, and your family to sit on the sidelines. This holiday season is the perfect time to talk to everyone around you and remind them none of us can afford to stay silent. Will you pledge to talk to your friends and remind them why this election matters?
Yes, I’ll talk to my friends and family about this election!
We all need to commit to get into the ring and fight to defeat any of the extremist anti-woman presidential candidates–and UltraViolet Action’s here to help. We’ll start by sending you a graphic to share on social media. Then, over the next few weeks and months, we’ll keep coming back to you with information, infographics, and petitions–because it’s going to take all of us speaking out repeatedly to stop Trump, or Rubio, or Cruz from becoming president.
The next president has a big job to do. The country must make progress on equal pay and fight back against anti-Black and anti-Muslim racism. We’ll need to defend Planned Parenthood from baseless attacks and work to stop assaults on women. And we have to get to a higher minimum wage and fight discrimination against LGBTQ people.
But none of that will happen if one of these extremists gets into office–which really could happen. Just think, people once thought George W. Bush could never be president, and look where that got us.
Commit to talking to your friends and family about this election.
