At this stage, it’s thoroughly predictable that supporters of Donald Trump are racist and unafraid to voice their bigoted opinions, but the strength of one man’s vitriol was still shocking and appalling.
During a Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, a supporter sporting a white supremacist tattoo began to scream at a Hispanic protester: “Get the f*ck out of here — our country, motherf*cker, our country…Proud f*cking American! Made in USA b*tch, made in f*cking USA!”
The man continued in this vein for some time as photographer Eric Rosenwald captured the entire hate speech on video.
He shrieked at the protester to, “Go f*cking make my tortilla, motherf*cker” and “Build that f*cking wall for me,” as he engaged in what appeared to be a Nazi salute.
Trump has been endorsed by the KKK, so he has a clear base of white supremacist fans, but the fact that they feel comfortable spewing such hatred in public continues to demonstrate the incontrovertible effect Trump has had on normalizing racist behavior.
You can view the supporter’s entire tirade above.
