“Shoot Him, Light The Motherf—-r On Fire”: Trump Mob Yells Nazi Salute As Protesters Dragged Out Of Rally

Share This:

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has already won the endorsement of white supremacists like former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke — and now that extremist support is becoming frighteningly visible at his campaign rallies, too.

At a campaign rally in Las Vegas last night, Trump supporters gleefully watched as gun control supporters and Black Lives Matter demonstrators were physically dragged out of his event by security.

Demonstrators from the BLM movement and the immigration reform movement are no strangers to violence and ugly rhetoric at the hands of a Trump mob — see our “Trump Hate Map” here — but last night’s rally took a frightening turn.

From NBC News:

As one man was dragged away, Trump supporters variously yelled, “Shoot him!” “Kick his ass,” and “Light the motherf——r on fire!”

A large middle aged man shouted, “Sieg heil!” — a Nazi Germany-era salute — as the protester was taken away.

“He’s a Muslim!” another man in a glittering black suit shouted as another protester was removed. “He’s a Muslim!”

Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins captured video of one demonstrator being dragged out of the event, as a Trump supporter screams, “Light the motherfucker on fire!”

Laura Martin, an immigration activist in Las Vegas, tweeted that an Iraq War veteran attempting to shield a group of women from the Trump mob was also attacked.

MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin tweeted his disbelief as he watched the event take a violent and tragic turn.
