Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy, but this time things got a little too heated. At a conference in Richmond Virginia, Trump supporters clashed with Latino activists and the thinly veiled hate group known as Black Lives Matter.
In fine form, Trump takes care of the hecklers and regains control of the meeting but not before some truly epic conflict.
According to Gateway Pundit,
Black Lives Matter and pro-illegal alien Latino activists were forcibly removed by Virginia State Police officers after disrupting a rally held Wednesday evening in Richmond by leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
There were reports that ‘small fights’ had broken out between the protesters and Trump supporters.
A cellphone video shows an apparent Trump supporter arguing with and then spitting on a protester. One report said the disruptions lasted for around thirty minutes.
When the protesters first made their presence known in the capacity crowd of about 5,000, Trump responded by saying, “That’s why we have freedom of speech, folks!”, according to a video excerpt of his speech posted to You Tube.
Photos posted to twitter by reporters at the rally, which was held at a large hall on the grounds of Richmond International Raceway, show uniformed Virginia State Police officers manhandling and ejecting several protesters. Other photos show ‘in your face’ verbal clashes between the protesters and Trump supporters.
M. Scott Mahaskey, Director of Photography for Politico, posted two batches of photos to Twitter.
“More from @realDonaldTrump event in Richmond, Virginia; protesters removed from venue amid large gathering.” WWBT-TV reporter Mike Valerio posted brief reports and photos of the protesters to Twitter.
A video posted to Twitter by CNN’s Jeremy Diamond shows a confrontation between a protester wearing a t-shirt with a profane Spanglish anti-Trump message and an apparent Trump supporter. After yelling back and forth the white male apparent Trump supporter appears to spit on the Latino male protester.
WHOA! This is exactly why we need Trump – because groups like this know he’s a threat to their race-baiting nonsense and can’t stand to have him in office where he’s free to speak the truth. We’ll bring you more news as we have it, but for now, mark this as one of Trump’s many victories against the left’s propaganda machine!
