The white supremacist bromance with Donald Trump continues full speed ahead. Just prior to Trump’s Super Tuesday victories, his supporters at a Louisville rally repeatedly shoved and pushed black protesters. One young woman, a teenager, appeared to have been shoved around like a rag doll. You can see a video clip of that happening here.
Shaun King over at the New York Daily News gives some background on who the perpetrators were: A group calling itself the Traditionalist Workers Party, whose members claim to be “Identitarians and White Nationalists,” not white supremacists. King also has quotes from some of the young protestors who were accosted by these thugs, including the teenager:
“I was called a n—– and a c–t and got kicked out,” said Shiya Nwanguma, a respected student at the University of Louisville to a local interviewer in a video posted on Facebook.
“They were pushing and shoving at me, cursing at me, yelling at me, called me every name in the book. They were disgusting and dangerous.”
Last weekend in Memphis, the white supremacist bromance saw Team Trump give press credentials to James Edwards, host of notoriously racist radio program The Political Cesspool.
