NORTH CAROLINA: White Trump Supporter Arrested After Sucker-Punching Black Protester [VIDEO]

But first the cops tackled and handcuffed the victim as the crowd cheered. The Washington Post reports:

Multiple videos show a protester at a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina being sucker-punched by a Trump supporter. The videos, which appeared on social media early Thursday and are shot from different perspectives, show an African American with long hair wearing a white T-shirt leaving the Trump rally as the audience boos. He is being led out of the rally by men in uniforms that read “Sheriff’s Office.” The man extends a middle finger to the audience on his way out.

Then, out of nowhere, the man is punched in the face by a pony-tailed man, who appears to be white, in a cowboy hat, black vest and pink shirt as the crowd begins to cheer. The protester stumbles away, and then is detained by a number of the men in uniforms, who handcuff him while he is on the ground.

John McGraw, 78, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct in connection to the incident, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sean Swain told The Post on Thursday. McGraw was due in court in April, Swain said. It was not immediately clear if he already has an attorney.

    So, yes. They need riot gear in Cleveland for the convention.

        Nah. It is going to be yuuuuuuuuuuuge!

    • coram nobis

      $50 million worth of grants for their riot gear: not budgeted, but a Federal grant burning a hole in Cleveland’s pocket. “Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall.”

          • Joe knows who I am.

            Glad to hear that you’re feeling better then. There’s been all sorts of bronchial and sinus issues this year throughout the states. I was hit too and it’s been lingering in one form or another for months.

          • oikos

            My hypothesis is that the lack of extreme cold has allowed many of these viruses and bacterial infections to survive.

            [Fingers crossed]

  • mattdocmartin

    Is this a case of better late than never? Pathetic on the part of the cops that he wasn’t arrested immediately, instead of participating in the further assault of the victim.

  • j.martindale

    It confirms to me that Trump supporters are trailer trash Klansmen.

    • Michael Abbett

      Old white dudes seeing the ‘Merica of their comfort zone slipping away.

      Actually, white privilege too. If the black man first punched the white man, he’d be dead, killed by the cops.

      Read some of the WaPo comments if you feel like getting aggravated. Many repeat what you just said… without the snark.

      • MichaelJ

        After the Trayvon Martin murder, I stopped reading comments in newspapers or general news sites like Huffington Post concerning any incident involving an arrest of, a physical attack on or a murder of a black person. I got too angry and disheartened by the hatred expressed in all too many comments along the lines of “he must have done something wrong”, “he shouldn’t have been there”, “he was a thug who deserved it”, “he has a history of ____ [fill in the blank with things that aren’t considered so wrong or damning when white people do then– e.g., smoke a joint, act loud, etc.]”, etc.

        • Oh’behr

          Ugh, sounds like the St. Paul or Minneapolis paper. Not that all the comments are by local people, yet it’s scary to see what’s written when comments are allowed. Though it’s usually written by the same people as they have the same handle. I agree about Huffington Post. I try to not read comments any longer.

  • bkmn

    Is assault a felony offense in NC? If it is there will be one less voter for tRump.

    When there is a scuffle, first arrest the black guy.

    The anger and violence at Trump rallies has been steadily escalating.

    And we still got a long way to November… imagine how much worse it’s going to get.

    If Trump grows really really desperate, we’ll see and hear a lot more stuff like this in the coming months. And worse.

    Trump has tip-toed into the misogyny thing (a crowd-pleaser for his base), but we might see him go whole-hog there.

    Also, anti-Semitism.

    Always a thug crowd-pleaser, that.

  • oikos

  • Gigi

    It’s about time. I couldn’t believe that even though the Trump Thug sucker-punched the protestor that it was the protestor who got taken down by the cops.

      Excellent. This would play just as honestly today, were it worded in the following manner.

      “I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it. If you can convince the lowest hetero man that he’s better than the best gay man, he won’t notice that you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll even empty his pockets for you.”

    • Galvestonian

      That’s largely why poor sharecroppers and poor whites fought in the Civil War. They considered themselves better than Afro-Americans.

    • DonnaLee

      A man who also spoke his mind, but people respected him and themselves for supporting him.

  • Prion

    ..,

    • Todd20036

      I think that cop was suspended.

  • MikeBx2

    I hope the victim gets good representation. The attacker should be held accountable both criminally and civilly.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Didn’t Trump say he’d pay the legal fees for any of his supporters who use violence against protesters?

    • jimbo65

      Yeah, I’m surprised nobody has taken him up on it yet. But that would predispose that anyone was actually arrested put on trial for assault. It’ll be interesting if it’s put to the test when and if someone actually gets killed by one of these rednecks. Which I’m amazed hasn’t happened yet.

      • Falconlights

        You can look for that to happen any time now. The asshat who sucker punched the protester said next time “he might have to kill him”.

  • justmeeeee

    • SoCalVet

      The ladies on the View informed us the other day that we are not to call Drumpf a nazi or even suggest there’s a valid comparison…after all, he didn’t kill a million jews yet!

        Yet.

        • JCF

          The cherry on top, to killing a billion Muslims first…

      • Todd20036

        So Hitler wasn’t supposed to be called a Nazi even though he ran under the Nazi party and denigrated Jews, foreigners, etc when he ran for office because he hadn’t slaughtered anyone yet?

        The View ladies are imbeciles. Drumpf is a fascist, and a Nazi. He emulates early 1930s Hitler.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Many in the media are trying to tell us not to call him a “real” Republican.

        Good luck with that.

        • Henri205

    • Rex

      There’s probably been more that just hasn’t been reported.

      • Todd20036

        It was viewed by a lot of people. So they couldn’t sweet the incident under the rug.

    • Michael Abbett

      Tons more. If the Democrats keep the White House I think there’s going to be a lot of old white guys go postal across the country. I really do. It will make Michael Douglas’ character in Falling Down look sane.

      • And if Trump manages to win the Presidency, things will be far, far, far worse.

        • StSean

          Because then they will have an apologetic/encouraging voice. Yikes.

          • Todd20036

            Because then there really will be camps.

          • JCF

            Because then there will be no one to prosecute them.

    • Buford

      Hopefully it’ll all be followed by arrests…. fingers crossed.

    • Joe knows who I am.

      It’s going to get a lot more violent.

      • charemor

        My biggest fear is that eventually someone is going to get killed at one of his rallies.

        • Falconlights

          That is my fear as well. I’ve been wondering for a while now when the first protester will get murdered.

    • Todd20036

      You wouldn’t believe, or maybe you win, the number of commenters on WaPo who justified the assailant’s actions. Maybe the protester said something. Maybe he deserved it for protesting a trump rally.

      And so forth

      • kaydenpat

        Free speech for me but not for thee is a Conservative motto. Shame on Republican leaders for not condemning this violence.

        These very same people would have been, without a doubt, very comfortable at a black lynching as well.

  • Octavio

    I hope with all my heart the old coot in the cowboy hat is convicted of assault and serves both jail time and ends up having to pay bunches of money to the victim forcing him to liquidate any assets and also taking his monthly SS check until he drops dead. No need for whackos punching people.

      He’s also misogynistic, anti gay, anti religious (except Christian) anti intellectual, anti independent thinking, anti Mexican, anti-refugees, anti Hispanic

  • Trump has awakened the evil racist beast that used to lurk in the shadows.

    • Lazycrockett

      What scares me is that I honestly thought that his country over the decades has made a dent in racism. While it was still around that with each generation we were becoming more enlightened, but I guess I was wrong. Given half a chance we see how little we have moved the scale. SMH

      • Matthew Delemos

        You weren’t wrong at all. That violent old fossil is almost 80, and nothing but a bitter relic at this point. How many people that age think they can fight? He’s on the losing side and lashed out in anger, not confidence.

      • Totally agree with you.

    • Joe knows who I am.

      Good! There are upsides to it being out in the open.

      • While the seam of racism needs to be addressed, I don’t believe this is the best way to do so. Trump gives legitimacy to racism, and from what I’ve seen the media is down playing the racism that runs rampant at Trump rallies.

        • Joe knows who I am.

          At this point, I don’t think there’s any time left for best.

    • Matthew Delemos

      I know, isn’t it great? Most of them are ancient bitter relics at this point. They need to be dragged out of the shadows before it grows longer. Not ignored so they are free to whisper lies to the young ‘uns.

    Since Trump said he would pay the legal costs of anyone arrested for attacking protesters at his rallies, I’m waiting for this loser to hand him a bill. Hopefully, Trump will refuse to pay, McGraw will sue and everything will get nice and ugly.

    • Mow

      I was about to write for Trump to put his money where his mouth is. Once he turns over one cent, he’s done for.

      • Jack_Carter_USA

        If he pays up, he’s done for because he’s encouraging violence. If he refuses to pay up, he’s still done for because he’s an untrustworthy backslider. I would say he’s done for either way but he’s survived every such prediction so far.

    The only good thing is that the Trump crowd hate other Republicans who don’t support Trump. Their convention could be one brawl after another.

    • billbear1961

      Oh, I do hope so.

  • Imagine that, an old, violent bigot. Seems to me he was old enough to have been doing this same shit when Dr. King was marching. Hmm…

  • Jerry Hinnant

    Trump offered to cover legal costs if one of his fans got in trouble. He encouraged it so now let’s see how that goes!

    • gosh i’d love to use a link or quote about that. do you have one? i am not a rump supporter; i’d just like to bookmark it for later.

    Mugshot of the alleged attacker, looking exactly as I would have alleged.

      Put him in a home. Preferably, a home that was featured on ’60 Minutes’.

      The New York Times managed to get a quick interview with Mr. McGraw after the attack. It went downhill fast, real fast.

      “Yes he deserved it,” Mr. McGraw added, saying that protester was not
      acting like an American. “The next time we see him, we might have to
      kill him.”

      • MikeBx2

        Oh my! Well, I hope the next time he sees him is in court.

      • Oh’behr

        What the hell is acting like an American?

        • Falconlights

          Daring to challenge a bottom feeder like Trump, apparently.

    • If assault on the elderly is an aggravating charge, shouldn’t assault BY the elderly also be a sentence enhancement?

      To be fair.

    Trump Supporter Who Punched Protester: ‘Next Time, We Might Have To Kill Him’

    From Inside Edition:

    Trump Supporter Who Punched Protester: ‘Next Time, We Might Have To Kill Him’

    INSIDE EDITION tracked down the supporter, 78-year-old John McGraw, who was unrepentant.

    When asked if he liked the rally, he said: “You bet I liked it. Knocking the hell out of that big mouth.”

    And when asked why he punched the protester, he said: “Number one, we don’t know if he’s ISIS. We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American, cussing me… If he wants it laid out, I laid it out.”

    He added: “Yes, he deserved it. The next time we see him, we might have to kill him. We don’t know who he is. He might be with a terrorist organization.”

      Sucker punching people is SO American. Smh.

    • zhera

      I was about to write ‘unbelievable!’, but then I realized I can absolutely believe all of this.

      Unfortunately.

  • billbear1961

    I read an article a few days ago where the author predicted something so horrendously ugly would happen at a Trump rally at some point that people would FINALLY start to change their minds about this man and what he is actively encouraging from his thuggish supporters.

    ‘Next Time, We Might Have To Kill Him’

    I think we’re getting closer and closer to that moment.

    What surprises me is that one of these thugs has finally been arrested for assault!

    It’s about TIME!!

  • Henri205

    Appalling. But not unexpected.

    • billbear1961

      Precisely!

    • Rebecca Gardner

      Not much longer. It will happen sometime in the next 4 to 5 months, if not, definitely at the RNC Convention.

  • kaydenpat

    Wow. Very shocked that he was arrested. About bleeding time, as the British would say.

  • Charles Manuel P.

    Every time I see one one of these stories or one of Trump’s rallies, I get the feeling that it’s like the Wallace campaign in ’68.

    • Rebecca Gardner

      I think the fight at the 1968 Convention is going to look like a mild case of poor manners. I expect a bloody riot at the RNC Convention and at least 1 death.

      • Charles Manuel P.

        The potential for actual political violence in the US….. I thought much of the West had moved past that. In Greece, I can at least picture it, but how much longer before society reacts against this?

        • Henri205

          I think the potential is absolutely present in places like the Deep South and Texas, the Deep Stupid. It’s terribly disturbing that we’ve had stable, lawful transfers of power in this country for 200+ years but for the first time in living memory there could be violence.

        • billbear1961

          The MAIN reason the right keeps getting worse and worse is because DECENT people in this country have let them get away with their ugly BULLSHIT for FAR too LONG!

          Now we’re going to pay a price for it, and I very much hope that price won’t involve the LOSS of our democratic republic!!

  • Charles Manuel P.

    “This makes me happy. 8 years of being silenced and pushed around, now it’s the common man’s turn to do some pushing.

    It could only be better if this were Buchanan running with this kind of support.

    Trump 2016”

    God, that’s depressing. I used to have sympathy for the non-college-educated middle aged white men who hoped to work at a decent wage because their fathers did so, but now – well, I have no sympathy for those who have NO HOME TRAINING or sense of personal responsibility or dignity.

  • NancyP

    And guess why I have NO INTEREST in going to see tRump tomorrow downtown, about 2.5 miles (easy walk) from work. Admittedly, I didn’t show my face at the Ferguson protests, about 5 miles from where I live – I am chicken, also, last thing they needed was a well-intentioned white woman at the early BLM marches.

  • KarenAtFOH

    Trump: “The American dream is dead. I’m going to make it bigger, stronger…” as the cops surround an older black guy and hustle him out of the auditorium. Just wow. You can’t make this stuff up.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if someone isn’t knifed one day, of course it wouldn’t be Rumps problem

  • MonochromeMouse

    why haven’t these protestors figured out yet that peaceful protests don’t work against Nazis, not that I’m condoning violence or anything

  • mizzourah

    Crackers be shakin’

  • Galvestonian

    I sincerely believe that Mr. Trump is largely supported by people who have never realized that the South lost the Civil War. It’s something like those poor Japanese soldiers coming out of the jungles of New Guinea and Malasia not realizing that WWII was long over. Ol’ Bobbie Lee never communicated with these troops as they retreated to the hinterland and bred sons and daughters that still fight the fight against Northern Aggression. They ain’t stupid we ‘re just uneducated.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    And as soon as the cameras stopped, they unfurled Trump’s new American Flag design…….
