Muslim woman thrown out of Trump rally for silently sitting

This is disgusting.  These Trump supporters are every worst stereotype of the Republican party.  Trump's statement after she is thrown out is the racist icing on the cake:  http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/muslim-woman-ejected-from-trump-rally/ar-CCj4wG?li=BBnb7Kz

  • Sadly it will be shown across the Muslim world and it wouldn't surprise me if it winds up in an ISIS recruitment video
  • ugh!  Yet he is still the front runner lord help us all.

  • Not a day goes by when I don't see a news report of Trump throwing someone out of his rallies. Today I read about a man who was a Trump supporter, decked out in Trump gear, who said that what Trump was saying was getting boring. Trump threw him out.

    What does this say about Trump? It says that not only does he not care about the opinions or criticism of others, he will throw them out so he doesn't have to hear it. Why do his supporters not see this?

  • These people are plants and he knows it.

    ???  Who planted them?  They decided to protest his rally... that was their choice.  I don't get how they are "plants".  Hell, I've been seriously considering protesting a Trump rally too, but I can't think of an original, yet respectful way to do it and I'm actually scared for my safety.

    I think she was with an organization that basically set up everything from her shirt and scarf matching to where she was sitting. But it was up to Trump to actually throw her out. Apparently it was the same with Rosa Parks. She was with an organization that put her on that bus and told her not to give up her seat. But some white dude actually had to tell her to get up.

    And that's what's also scary about Trump fans. People have gotten shoved around for disagreeing with Trump. I'm waiting for someone with a concealed carry to whip out his gun on someone. Maybe that will actually get some attention.

  • I don't know about her being a plant. But I did see an article on Breitbart about her and the man she was with being anti-Israel supporters. Whatever. I just think Trump is awful.

    She was with a group of Jewish and Muslim folks, including the man sitting next to her who was Jewish.  I think people are making up a whole bunch of stories and probably only a tiny percentage are true.  Just because they were a part of an organization doesn't make the protest less legit also.

    I saw a documentary about this!!!  Apparently, the actual incident had happened to a female high school senior a few weeks earlier.  She got in trouble and there was a brief, back page newspaper story about it.  The organization Rosa Parks was with (forget which one), got in touch with the girl and had her come tell them her story.  They wanted to use the incident as a way to bring people together to boycott the bus industry...but decided it would have more resonance with an adult woman as a victim instead of the teenager.

    Rosa Parks rode the exact same bus and route...I think she even tried to make sure she got the same driver...to, in essence, prompt the same thing to happen.  So, although it wasn't like the incident was totally fake...she was kicked off just like the historical event outlined...but it was a set up.

    Why don't they teach this in school? This is the first I'm learning of it.

    Puh-leez...there is so much "extremely selective" choosing and editing of what gets put in history books for EL-HS students.  I bought a really interesting book a few years ago called (I think) "The Lies My Teacher Told Me".  But it is about this very subject of the way history, especially U.S. history, has been white-washed and distorted for textbooks.

    In the documentary, they actually tracked down the woman who had been that HS student and interviewed her.  At the time, she had known nothing about what they were going to do.  The interviewer asked what it was and has been like for her to have seen Rosa Parks essentially steal her story and become such a part of history with it.  She said she was very hurt and angry about it in her younger years.  But, as she got older, her anger faded and she made peace with it long ago.  At this point in her life, she doesn't really care and doesn't really think about it, but is very thankful that the kind of discrimination she faced as a teenager at least doesn't exist at that same level anymore.    

  • I watched a strange hearing once on CSPAN that was the TX state board of education deciding what things they would and wouldn't teach about the Civil War.  I get that you can't cover EVERYTHING, but it was astounding how they made their choices.  It was very biased.
