“Maybe he should’ve been roughed up”

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the Black protester, who was thrown out of the Donald Trump klan rally in Birmingham, AL.  This man, who is named Mercutio Southall, Jr,  was a Black Lives Matter protester.  He was attacked by 7 or 8 Trump supporters.  Some were chanting “All Lives Matter” in response to this man saying “Black Lives Matter.” See?  This is why sane people do not believe that All Lives Matter crap. If all lives truly mattered, you wouldn’t have beat this man.  His life matters.  Mercutio’s life matters.  So all of you All Lives Matter supporters can miss me with that.

According to the Washington Post, this is what happened and how Trump responded:

Mercutio Southall Jr. — a well-known local activist who has been repeatedly arrested while fighting what he says is unfair treatment of blacks — interrupted Trump’s rally and could be heard shouting, “Black lives matter!” A fight broke out, prompting Trump to briefly halt his remarks and demand the removal of Southall.

“Get him the hell out of here, will you, please?” Trump said on Saturday morning. “Get him out of here. Throw him out!”

At one point, Southall fell to the ground and was surrounded by several white men who appeared to be kicking and punching him, according to video captured by CNN. A Washington Post reporter in the crowd watched as one of the men put his hands on Southall’s neck and heard a female onlooker repeatedly shout: “Don’t choke him!”

As security officers got Southall on his feet and led him out of the building, he was repeatedly pushed and shoved by people in the crowd. The crowd alternated between booing and cheering. There were chants of “All lives matter!”

“Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel on Sunday morning. “I have a lot of fans, and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy who was a trouble-maker who was looking to make trouble.”

That was a change in tone from just a month ago, when Trump would regularly tell his audiences not to harm the protesters who often infiltrate his rallies.

“Don’t hurt ’em,” Trump said at a rally in Miami on Oct. 23 as pro-immigration activists were led out. “You can get ’em out, but don’t hurt ’em.”

There is no way you can convince me these people truly believed all lives matter.  Mercutio was hit, punched, and choked all because he chanted “Black Lives Matter.”  But all lives matter. Lies!  This is what Trump inspires in people- racism and violence.  Do you want him leading your country?  Can you imagine the type of trouble and chaos he would create in this nation?  Something to think about people. Wake up!!
