There seems to never be a dull moment around Donald Trump, and Trump’s rallies are looking like KKK rallies more and more. In the below video, posted by McKay Coppins, a senior political writer for BuzzFeed News, a black man can be seen sitting on the ground yelling for officers not to touch him, whilst one Trump rally participant screams for the black man to be lit on fire.
Warning: The below video contains language that might be disturbing to some viewers.

Another troubling video from the Trump rally displays a man yelling the “Sieg Heil!” Nazi slogan or salute that Hitler supporters used to yell at him. “Sieg Heil!” translates to “Hail victory!” or “Hail, my leader!”

The Republican presidential candidate was speaking in Las Vegas when the melee began at Trump’s rally on Monday, December 14. According to Benjy Sarlin, an MSNBC political reporter covering the GOP side of the 2016 presidential campaign, a protestor was dragged out of the Trump rally. As the man was dragged out of the Trump rally, another man screamed that the man was a Muslim.

According to Yahoo News, Ender Austin III interrupted Trump’s rally, and the #BlackLivesMatter protester was taken out of Trump’s rally for the presidential campaign by force. It was Monday night when Trump supporters gathered to rally him on at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. Expect more melee to come on Tuesday when more demonstrations are planned for Tuesday at the Venetian casino for the fifth and final Republican debate. Ender is a minister who supports the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
As reported by BuzzFeed, other sinister slogans and words were yelled at the Trump rally.
“Kick his a**!” yelled one supporter. “Shoot him!” shouted another. “Hail Trump!”
“The majority of issues with gun violence are not with undocumented persons. And to parade that as though this is the reason why we should deport millions of people and destroy millions of lives was disturbing to me.”
The reports of people screaming “Hail Trump!” were disturbing to Ender, as he likened the Trump supporters in the Trump rally yelling disturbing things to Nazi youth or Hitler Youth group meetings.
The video of Austin being grabbed by the police is making the rounds online, along with reports that say Ender was ultimately let go by the cops. However, Austin did say that one sergeant implied Ender would be arrested if he filed a complaint.
Along with Austin being kicked out of the Trump rally, Amanda Staten and Jonas Rand were also kicked out. They had traveled with the same Unity Vegas group that Austin had traveled to Vegas with. Amanda reported that she was kicked out after kicking a man who confiscated the phone she had used to take video of Ender’s handling by security. The man asked Staten about her allegiances, using odd phrasing.
“Whose side you’re on?”
Meanwhile, all the Nazi rhetoric hasn’t stopped folks like Tom Brady from supporting Trump and calling him a good friend.

Besides all the problems at Trump’s rallies lately, Trump is also making news after Trump’s doctor called Trump the healthiest candidate in U.S. history, as reported by CNN International. It’s a statement that’s reminding some folks of the hyperbole “The Donald” himself would use.
