The Violence At The Donald Trump Rally Was Intentional

On Friday, violence broke out in and around the University of Illinois Chicago Pavilion between Donald Trump supporters and protesters. The fracas began after a Trump spokesperson announced that the GOP frontrunner was cancelling the scheduled rally over safety concerns. The combination of  thousands of angry Trump devotees and a coalition of black, Latino, and Muslim students and their supporters in the same space resulted in the lowest point of the 2016 election. But make no mistake, this wasn’t an accident.

The savagery in Chicago was the culmination of months of race-baiting by Donald Trump.

That a Donald Trump event turned violent should come as a surprise to no one. Trump has been using racially-charged language since launching his presidential campaign last June. First, he accused Latinos, specifically Mexican immigrants, of being rapists. Not content with pissing off one group of brown people, he doubled down in December by stating that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. That was only the beginning.

As you can see in the video above, compiled by “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Trump’s rhetoric has gotten increasingly hateful and divisive. In between talking about how America doesn’t win anymore and how he’s going to make Mexico pay for a border wall (lol, nope), Trump has actively encouraged physical violence and even promised to pay people’s legal fees should they get in trouble. And when confronted with the consequences of his words, Trump naturally placed the blame elsewhere.

This is what a Donald Trump supporter looks like.

Why you should care.

This Will Make You SickDon’t let their voice be the only one heard.

Donald Trump isn’t a stupid man. He’s a reprehensible human being whose face looks like a spray-tanned anus spewing verbal sh*t, but dumb he is not. Despite his ludicrous claims that Latinos love him, Trump knows that we’re not going to vote for him seeing as the latest Gallup poll shows that he has a favorability rating of -65 among Latinos. But you know what? He almost definitely doesn’t care.

Since you’re not voting, it could bite you in the ass.
