"Read This Man’s Terrifying Account of Standing Silently at a Trump Rally"

More: http://usuncut.com/news/standing-silently-at-a-trump-rally/
"James Troup boldly went to Donald Trump’s Dayton, Ohio, rally last
weekend to silently observe the crowd’s response to Trump’s rhetoric and
people of color within the audience. Troup’s account of his experience
is going viral.

According to Troup, the crowd was mostly white, with a small number
of people of color scattered throughout the audience. A big part of the
billionaire Republican front-runner’s message that night was based on
fear:

“He told Ohioans that only oil was propping up their state and that
their economy was in serious trouble. He said this over and over again,”
Troup wrote. “He also told the crowd that ISIS was out to kill them.
That ISIS was putting 50 people at a time in cages and drowning them in
the ocean. And that we had to kill them first.”

Then, Troup noted that the rally took a noticeably darker turn:
“Cheers for water boarding. Cheers for torture. Calls to cut off
their heads… They loved everything that was being said. The calls for
the wall. The calls to blow up oil fields. The calls to torture and kill
people.”

1. I would hope those cheering for him would listen to his words,

He is unhinged, a disaster looking for a place to land.

6. Where ever Trump points, his fans attack.

 

It must bring a twisted comfort to him, but it scares the piss out of the rest of us, which surely brings more comfort to him...him and Hitler...yeah. It's the first time in American history you can say..."like Hitler" without being considered outrageous.

7. It's like they all belong to a religious cult and Trump is their messiah.

Maybe they'll all drink kool-aid along with him after he loses.

9. I never thought I could loath anyone more than I do

Dick Cheney! tRumo, as well as his "followers" are a scary, frightening lot. After the election, when DickHead goes down in flames, I fear some of his most ardent disciples will come completely unhinged. Thanks, Trump! You bigoted, racist, vile, lying PIECE OF DOGSHIT You truly turn my stomach!

11. His crowds actually want to kill people?

 

They probably also like to watch! Sounds completely deranged.
