A Trump rally in Maricopa County last weekend provided hundreds of xenophobic locals, including heavily armed militamen, white nationalists, and even elected officials, an opportunity to publicly show their love for their favorite bigot, President Trump. The ensuing “March for Trump” was even more hate filled and paranoid than most expected.
Not realizing Trump only cared about slandering his opponent during the campaign, and did not have any intention of following through on his threats to Clinton, some uninformed marchers were still chanting campaign slogans. You can read some of the ridiculous, hateful garbage being spewed by the pro Trump crowd that shows off its unhindered prejudice, just as one would expect from a group of Trump supporters.
“I heard ‘lock her up, lock her up,’ and we still need to pursue that,” announced Arizona Congressman Anthony Kern; a nod to a prominent Trump campaign promise to imprison then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“If you don’t like it here, go to Syria, go to someplace else,” one attendee shouted.
“I don’t want ’em, as a veteran I don’t want ’em, let ’em go back home,” another seconded. “If they’ve got a problem, let Saudi Arabia take care of ’em.”
Some told Dan Cohen of the The Real News Network how they’d make America great again now that Trump was in office. And Muslims weren’t the only religious minority unwelcomed.
“If she’s Jewish, she should go back to her country,” a 13-year-old Trump supporter said of a protester.
“This is America, we don’t want Sharia Law,” one attendee explained. “Christian country,” he added.
A separate man insisted that Senator John McCain was a “secret communist.”
“I think there’s a lot there,” another said of Pizzagate, a deranged right-wing conspiracy theory that Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta ran a child prostitution ring out of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. “Definitely enough to warrant an investigation.”
And just when you thought things couldn’t get worse…
“I just want to let them know that I can’t wait for the liberal genocide to begin,” an Oath Keeper shouted at a small group of protesters.
“That’s the way to make America great again,” he later told Cohen. “Liberals are destroying the country.”
This hatred is ridiculous, and it is an obvious overtone of basically every pro-Trump march. Hatred towards all except white Christian republicans. “Christian” in this case, is referring to those that claim to be Christian, not those who are “Christ-like” in actions as the term Christian implies. There is an obvious contradiction.
