The moment that Ms. Nwanguma, 21, who is black, held up her signs, Trump supporters ripped them away and began shoving her, screaming racial slurs and calling her “leftist scum,” she said in an interview.

“Did I enjoy being treated like trash? No, not at all,” she said.

At least she came away unharmed. The same could not be said for Rakeem Jones, 26, a protester who was punched in the face by a Trump supporter on Wednesday as law enforcement officers were leading him out of a campaign rally in Fayetteville, N.C.

    • I just heard about it this morning, thanks. America is a tinderbox right now. People are angry, scared, and confused. Trump is inciting violence, and violence will only incite more violence. This incident in Chicago is similar to the KKK clash with counter-protesters in Anaheim recently. The U.S. is tearing itself apart – very sad.

      • It is very disturbing.

        I’m afraid Herr Drumpf is just getting started. He encourages violence at his rallies, and then pretends that it has nothing to do with his actions. Classic.

        We know that he gloats inwardly while watching it. It’s great ratings, and it feeds a false narrative of victimhood that will be an asset for him from now on.

      • Chicago did the seemingly impossible: it stopped Herr Drumpf, if only for a while.

        Yeah, it is something to be proud of, all things considered.

      • Yes. I know I perhaps shouldn’t be, but I’m quite proud we shut that prick up yesterday. His is not the only voice loud enough to be heard. Funny how he blames Obama and liberals for racial dividing the nation and not his racist, violent, xenophobic hate-mongering. Poor, victimized tRump.

      • Of course. It is never the narcissistic psychopath’s fault. Even as he stabs you, he’ll scream that he’s the victim because you maliciously ran into his knife, you nasty heartless person, you.

        I am too proud of Chicago. I do worry, though, about the escalating violence and hope that people do their very best to remain peaceful and civil, as difficult as it may be.

      • This is what a descent to hell looks like. People who think “It can’t ever happen here” are always wrong, as history proves time and again.

        Psychopathology, and especially psychopathy, is my life-long interest and a major focus of my work, and I can tell you that I have not seen anything like Trump. Hitler, although similar in terms of psychopathology, was not as eff’d up (clinically speaking) as Trump is.

  1. No one should attend a protest unless they take the perspective of a soldier: Willing to sacrifice, even die, for their country. Even more sobering, it is a requirement for peaceful protests. I am so very proud of each protester.
