    A supporter of Donald Trump stormed the press platform and attacked a BBC cameraman at the president’s rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday.
    ...
    The BBC reports the unidentified Trump supporter twice almost knocked Skeans and his camera over as he “shoved and swore” at other members of the press and yelled “**** the media” before security escorted him away.
    ...
    The BBC’s Washington news editor, Eleanor Montague, said Trump had whipped the crowd “into a frenzy against the media” prior to the attack.

    Just another tRUMP campaign rally.
    Where he incites anger and divisiveness.
    How can anyone support one who clearly doesn't want what's good for America?

    Trump has no decency.. He should be ashamed of what he's done.

    I think we should immediately paint an entire group of people with a broad stroke because of the actions of this individual. Just like racists do!

    He is likely proud.
    American's at each other's throats is what he and supporters want, IMO.

    What broad stroke? Who, besides tRUMP was painted in the OP?

    Or is it, you'd like to paint with the broad brush?

    Still have no sympathy for the press, but if a crime was in fact committed, law enforcement should investigate.

    Trumped Republicans claim the violent hysteric was an antifa in disguise.

    Read this too. Yet Trump supporters have the gall to accuse others of being violent. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Until the man is identified and more proof this man is indeed a Trump support other then a hat because anyone can buy a hat and looks like this man just bought his the tag was still on it
    I'm very skeptical


    and because this isn't top of the page news on news sites like CNN or MSNBC which one would expect it to be looks like even the liberal media is being cautious

    or it could be because this man doesn't appear to be white the liberal media isn't going off on its typical hissy fit is because they don't want smear a minority

    Oh yeah, this board is rife with Trump supporters every day casting aspersions at all others. The reality is, that incident is indictive of Trump supporters persona, and they can only rationalize themselves is to use false and misleading news stories from conspiracy sites to try to make themselves decent.

    This isn't the 1st time this has happened at a Trump rally.

    LOL.

    Pot or kettle.

    I guess your argument is that this white supremacist's act excuses Antifa terrorism.

    There are more than a few DNC operatives who are part of ANTIFA.

    "paint an entire group of people with a broad stroke because of the actions of this individual".

    ^Just like the RW does All Day/Every Day when it comes to the LW?

    Got it.

    Do the words "irony" and "hypocrisy" ring a bell?:salute:

    His supporters are too stupid to realize it yet, but trump actually hates America and is actively trying to screw it up out of spite.
    He has never forgiven the US for refusing to keep bankrolling his failed business ventures. That's why he got in bed with the russians in the first place.
    And he never gave a flying **** about the average American in the first place, so playing the hate-mongering demagogue and pandering to far right extremists is an easy tactic to use to keep the rubes conned until it's too late for them.

    Its your thread. The thread title focuses on his support for trump and specifically ties his actions to his political affiliation in spite of the fact that only an infinitesimal number of people on both sides behave this way. Trump does not incite anger and divisiveness; he is a mere reflection of what already exists. Don't try to pretend either party was engaging in respectful debate until Trump came along.
