Here we go again. Yet another crazy, racist bully has used Donald Trump’s rhetoric as an excuse for his vicious verbal attacks.
RawStory reports that a man went ballistic on a Manhattan subway train, and started screaming curses at a Black female passenger.
A video of the incident shows the mans leaning toward the woman, screaming:
“C*nt! C*nt! Fat two-faced c*nt!. Worthless stupid f*cking c*nt! Donald Trump 2016! Put them back in the fields where they belong.”
The video shows that the man, wearing a white suit, sunglasses, and Panama hat, was engaged in a shouting match with a woman on the train. She was yelling at him, although we can’t see why. The video starts after the argument is already underway.
Two people yelling at each other on a NYC subway is not that unusual, I’ll admit.
What is so appalling is that the little man leans in toward the woman, almost in her face, and makes sure that he is spitting as he screams. She doesn’t seem intimidated, to her credit, and she calls him a name right back.
He moves away from her, down the row of passengers, still screaming his ugly, racist words. Still connecting those awful words to his support for Donald Trump.
I mean, seriously? “Put them back in the fields where they belong?” What decade are we living in?
Another train passenger, a white woman, starts shushing the man. Telling him to just stop it.
He doesn’t. He repeats his praise for Trump and his misogynistic, racist slurs.
This is what we’ve come to, America. People who have been holding in all that hate are now busting free. People who have been hiding their racist beliefs have found themselves a champion.
Now that Donald Trump has been crowned as the leader of the Republican Party, these nasty, violent, little people feel empowered to use language like this on a New York City subway train. In a public place, in the most diverse city on earth.
There aren’t enough anger management classes in the world to force ugly people like this man back under his rock, and there aren’t enough anger management classes in the world to push this hateful rhetoric back into the shadows where it belongs.
I hope that Donald Trump’s supporters will see this video and think very carefully about who it is that they are choosing to represent them.
