Trump Praises Supporters For Being “Vicious, Violent, Screaming” During His Campaign Rallies [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday acknowledged that his backers were “vicious” and “violent” during the campaign.

“You people were vicious, violent, screaming, ‘Where’s the wall? We want the wall!’ Screaming, ‘Prison! Prison! Lock her up!’ I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?” Trump said in Orlando, Fla., during a stop on his “thank you” tour. “But now, you’re mellow and you’re cool and you’re not nearly as vicious or violent, right? Because we won, right?”

During the campaign, Trump downplayed violent incidents that took place at his rallies, often claiming any incidents were caused by paid protesters. Trump frequently said during rallies that he would pay the legal fees of any supporter who was arrested for punching an anti-Trump protester.

  • Another instance of Trump accidentally being honest. I mean, about how his crowd has acted. His attempts to change the current reality are just plain goofy.

  • Michael R

    So now you accept that Trump is a blowhard who isn’t
    going to do anything he said he would , you’re cool , right ?

    • Gustav2

      Once the hot air is out of their collective balloon…they don’t care. The angry mob doesn’t really care about policy.

  • crewman

    He owes his election to Putin and Comey.

    • and the MEDIA…

    • FAEN

      Comey really fucked us. His little stunt caused swing voters to go for Trump. It shouldn’t have been anywhere as close as it was but Comey didn’t help.

      Fuck-I’m day drinking today.

          Exactly 😁🥃🥃🥃

    • Jerry

      And I’m concerned that he may try the “Putin way” of gaining popularity…which was, in the late ’90s, the apartment terror bombings. After leaks, it turned out his administration orchestrated the bombings, but it worked to unify the country behind Putin. Quite a few experts are predicting a terror attack in the US within the first 100 days of Trump…either from the administration’s lack of experience, or a home-grown insider attack to give Trump more power and acceptance.

  • TexasBoy

    To go to Orlando, and give such a hate speech following the Pulse tragedy is inexcusable.

    • Christopher

      Cheetolini has absolutely no shame whatsoever.

      There is no excuse for him. At all. Ever.

    • David Walker

      I doubt that was ever even a consideration. Orlando has a name. Miami has those brown people.

    • RoFaWh

      Drumpf is as crass and crude a person as you will ever meet. He has no shame and no concern for anything except his ego and his bank account.

  • geoffalnutt

    He has to keep whipping the crowd into a frenzy lest someone notice he’s not doing shit for them..(and never will). It’s the old “look at the bright, shiny object”, the shell game. His old schtick.

    • Todd20036

      It’s enough. His followers really don’t care if they are shat upon so long as they get to feel superior to “undesirables”

      Mostly blacks, LBGTs, Muslims, and Latinos.

      • RoFaWh

        You forgot “educated people”.

  • Gigi

    So much for bringing the country together.

    • Todd20036

      Please. They want us apart. And frankly, there is no WAY I am coming together with fascists.

      If you vote for Trump you are a fascist. It’s really that black and white now.

      And if you voted for someone other than Trump (but not Hillary), then you are an idiot I don’t need to talk to

  • Octoberfurst

    Translation from Trumpese” “You guys were violent thugs and I am grateful for that. Now you can calm down because I am in charge. But if I didn’t get elected I expected you to riot.”

    • David Walker

      Monday, Monday…can’t trust that day.

  • Quagmired

    I really like this site but since the closing days of the election and since it has become such an unrelenting deluge of bad news and negativity – I understand you’re just reporting it and I understand that things are worse than they seem – that I find myself tuning in less and less. You don’t have a puppy or kitten video lying around you could post? lol.

  • Piona O.

    Here’s a revelation. Donald Trump’s necktie is a phallic symbol. It’s wider and redder and longer than anybody else’s necktie. Also, it’s like a big red arrow that points directly to his penis.

  • Todd

    such a pig

  • Trump played the media and the people for fools..he is now stating it as such…

    • Gustav2

      Yeah, and they were really whinging on MSNBC yesterday after Pres Obama’s speech. Including all who made Hillary Rodham Clinton into Hillary Email Clinton.

  • TampaZeke

    It’s no exaggeration to say that this speech would be worthy of Hitler, but not of an American President.

    • David Walker

      Don’t forget that he kept (keeps?) a book of Hitler’s speeches beside his bed. WWHD?

      • TampaZeke

        Anyone who’s read Mein Kampf couldn’t possibly think that it wasn’t the blue print for Trump’s campaign. Republicans campaign operatives must be required to keep a copy on them at all times.

        Everyone in American should be required to read the book. It will quickly determine if people are going down this road out of ignorance or with intention. At this point I’m starting to believe that it is intentional.

        • David Walker

          I’m reading “The Rise and Fall…”. The phrase I keep remembering is “gullible Germans.” Gullible Germans = Gullible Americans.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            The german economy was crippled by reparations after WWI. Having to pay millions to the french and english.
            Then the depression.
            And along comes a group that successfully scapegoats the jewish and liberal elites, blaming all of germanys ills on them.

            First you torture your prey until they have nothing to lose. Then you convince them you have all the answers.
            Its stockhom syndrome.

          • David Walker

            It is, but Hitler spelled it out in “Mein Kampf.”

    • David Walker

      One of their xmas carols:

      “Let’s all put down the bourgeoisie, they’re libruls one and all.
      For we’re the true Americans, and to us they will crawl.
      As patriots we vow to do our best at Putin’s call
      With rants full of anger and hate,
      Anger and hate.
      With rants full of anger and hate.”

      Perhaps you’ve heard of another? Perhaps you’d share it with us?

  • Uncle Mark

    No no no…you can’t unleash bigoted hatred, viciousness, divisiveness, and lies…and then think that you can put those toxic genies back in the bottle just because you won, nor can you ever unite a country after you so eagerly helped to divide it. The damage you caused, Drumpf, will take a lot more than 4 years of your failed presidency to ever heal it. You’ve released the basket of deplorables and your talking nice to them or politely asking them to stop ain’t gonna do it, you morally & intellectually bankrupt ass

    • David Walker

      I tend to think of him as what comes forth from an ass, starting with santorum and progressing from there.

      • Filthy

        Here’s what we know for sure about a Trump victory: say goodbye to inclusiveness, kindness, acceptance, and human decency. Say hello to oppression, divisiveness and crassness. All in the name of making America great again. I’m sad to live in a country that I thought had progressed beyond the type of extreme sexism and racism we’ve seen put on display in this election.

        Apparently Obama’a success in office wasn’t good enough for the majority of this country. RECORD unemployment numbers, legalized gay marriage, 5% growth, best year for jobs since 1999, consumer confidence up, deficit down 60% in 2014, gas prices low, health insurance cheaper than ever ($85/month), car insurance cheaper than ever ($25/month from Insurance Panda), the 1% starting to be taxed more and more.

        RepubliCONS want to cut education, want to crush healthcare, SS, and Medicare. If you aren’t a white male, you are certainly not equal. These from their own mouths. Sad day for America. Ignorance prevails from the uneducated, slave electorate who want to be amoral like Trump.

    • FAEN

      Well said! Plus he doesn’t realize he’s unleashed a monster that can and probably will turn on him at some point.

      • Uncle Mark

        I think in some ways he does realize this; that’s why he’s trying to calm them down because they are not going to get any of the things he promised (or were chanted about) at his rallies. He knows that the rage he’s unleashed will turn and consume him, when his basket people don’t get what he promised them.

        • FAEN

          He doesn’t get there will be no calming this crazy mob. They’re out for blood-quite literally-which will include Trumps when they figure out they’ve been conned. While I have no problem with the coming infighting I am terrified of the damage Trump et al will do to the rest of us in the meantime.

          • Uncle Mark

            I agree with you !! I’m also worried about the scapegoats he will throw out as raw meat to placate or distract his mob

          • Octoberfurst

            Exactly! He will find someone to blame and the results could be dire!

          • RoFaWh

            Who will it be? The Jews (always a fave)? The Muslims? The various sexual minorities? Mexicans? All those with dark skins?

            Or all of the above?

            I’d say anyone who isn’t a White. Christian heterosexual will be on the hit list.

          • Octoberfurst

            I do wonder what his crazed supporters will think when they realize their precious wall is not gonna be built or nor all those manufacturing jobs coming back. Will they turn on Trumpenstein? Or will he be able to deflect their rage and blame it on the liberals and the Democrats? And if he can will his supporters go into terrorist mode taking out the “libtard traitors”? Time will tell.

          • charemor

            As the Republicans have the White House, the Senate and the House, I don’t think there is anyway they can blame it on the Democrats or the liberals. I think his supporters will turn on him big time.

          • Octoberfurst

            Maybe, but you have to realize we are dealing with some very stupid people. There are Republicans who blame Obama for the economic meltdown of 2008 and even for 9-11! Yes, they are that stupid.

          • RoFaWh

            I doubt it. The deplorables don’t have much in the way of attention spans.

          • Piercedchrlz

            Wanna bet? They will rewrite history as it happens to justify themselves like an addict tries to justify his alcohol/ substances quicker than his actions can demoralize him.

          • Vista-Cruiser

            Democrats are completely out of power, but they’ll get stuck with the blame for anything bad that happens, just like they always do.

          • RoFaWh

          By then it’ll be a military dictatorship ,,, with the dear Leader running the show (with help from his dear friend in Russia)

      • Gerry Fisher

        I think he’s hoping he’s made his profit by the time this happens. I think that Plan A was to lose, play the martyr, and then manipulate his frenzied masses into purchasing his news organization and other goods and services. The “great” thing about this plan is that it works whether he loses the election or gets impeached later. He’s figured out how to make it profitable either way.

        • RoFaWh

          Wait until the resultant civil unrest starts to cut into Drumpf’s income.

    • Gerry Fisher

      I think he knows this. He wants his followers to normalize this approach so that he can manipulate them in the future by whipping them up again.

    • MonochromeMouse

      He’s just following the same playbook Mussolini and Hitler used, whip your supporters into a violent frenzy, then when you win plea with them to stop being violent while issuing pardons and other legal aid to the ones who do get caught.

      • Galvestonian

        THe capitol will burn and it will be blamed on the LGBT’s – then he’ll set up charming little rest areas on the Northwest Alaskan Tundra. Of course everyone will weep and wail at the extremely high mortality rate but they’ll keep sending more and more of us to the rest area because “REST MAKES YOU FREE”

        • MonochromeMouse

          they already torched one of their own campaign headquarters in NC and then blamed Hillary for it, then the local DNC pitched in to help rebuild it.

  • Michael R
  • GayOldLady

    It’s just his way of working the crowd to get them riled up. He’s not happy unless he can create anger and rage. LOCK HIM UP!

    • David Walker

      Without anger and rage he’d be a nobody. How would “nobody” compare to “loser”?

      • RoFaWh

        The funny thing is this: the single biggest social problem in the US is the mal-distribution of wealth, but afaik, neither Ms. Clinton or the Orange Dingbat ever mentioned it.

        I foresee the US becoming the newest third world country, alas.

        They say history isn’t all about important people (kings, etc), but this time it is. In saying that, I realize we don’t know was actually pulling the strings that control this puppet.

  • greenmanTN

    He’s praising his supporters for being violent and vicious?

    Oh, this is not going to go well…

    • GayOldLady

      I fear we’re in for an enormous clash of ideology among the masses. They’re already limiting where protesters can go in Washington DC on the day after the inauguration. I believe they understand that there are many more people against them than with them. I, personally, am getting prepared for a struggle.

      • SoCalGal20

        Not just the day of the Inauguration. They’ve blocked access for protests around the mall area for MONTHS after the Inauguration. This is going to be like a big version of what they just pulled at the state house in NC. Kick out all the protesters and lock the doors.

      • Chucktech

        Who is “they”?

        • Todd20036

          Trump’s goons.

          • Chucktech

            “Trump’s goons” cannot unilaterally limit “where protesters can go in Washington DC on the day after the inauguration.” That’s a decision that might have been made by adults who have to manage what can happen where in DC, like the US Park Service or some other legit authority that has such jurisdiction.

        • GayOldLady

          The National Park Service has denied access to the National Mall, the Capitol and all relevant and usual places of protest.

          • TuuxKabin

            Supposedly until March. Tho now the NPS is back peddling that story.

            http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/groups-call-blocking-inaugural-protests-unconstitutional-44029039

          • GayOldLady

            Well I hope they back peddle it all the way to January the 21st and allow the Million Woman March to march to the Mall. According to what I read the NPS reserves permits for the important sites for the Inauguration Team a year in advance and then releases those permits IF the Inauguration team decides they don’t want the permits. As far as I know the Million Woman March still hasn’t received access to the Mall.

          • TuuxKabin

            Agreed. At the local democratic club meeting the other night there are 50 chartered buses, leaving at 4:30AM and talk that they’re going no matter what. A lot of people are determined to be there, access or no access, there’s going to be a lot of people on the streets.

          • Chucktech

            That’s OK, I can understand that their job is to help ensure against the RIGHTEOUS pitch forks and torches crowd causing damage or harm to people. As long as it’s not Trump’s henchmen’s call.

          • RoFaWh

            A lawsuit needs to be filed at this egregious violation of the constitutional guarantee of the right to seek redress of grievances.

          • GayOldLady

            They are still going to march but their destination has yet to be determined, the last I read.

    • Vista-Cruiser

      Yes, that’s exactly what he’s doing.

      Trump and the Republicans have moved the range of acceptable behavior so far to the right that being violent and vicious is now considered admirable.

    Update on me. I survived my first week at my new job. So far so good! Unfortunately between work and the news I’m less active at JMG right now.

    Trump-related sory. I work in a business park and the building across the way from mine has a very good little deli. My fellow new coworker (we started the same day) and I went there yesterday for lunch. Some other woman was there watching tv. The local news was on and I wasn’t paying any attention because my coworker and I were chatting. Then the woman said something and I looked up. There was something about Duncan Hunter (ick – my Rep) and I said “What?” to the woman. Mistake. She said something about people being sore losers about the election and started trash talking Hillary and I was just like, “I’m a Democrat and a big Hillary supporter.” The woman says she used to be a Dem. Before she could get going on a rant I was just like, “Let’s not talk about politics”. My coworker is black so we both were not having it. The lady shut up. I was so annoyed lol.

    • worstcultever

      Nice story, especially the last sentence!

    • GayOldLady

      Amazing how they want to talk politics in places where politics shouldn’t be discussed.

      My wife said that one of the nurses in the Clinic she works in was complaining that one of the local Government buildings was not allowing a cross to be displayed at the top of their Christmas Tree. She said the co-worker went on and on about how christianity is being persecuted and christians are victims. And that people who don’t believe in jesus should get out of the country. After listening to the rant my wife said “I have no problem with a cross being on the christmas tree as long as you put every symbol of every other religion on the tree along with something that represents all the non-believers. Otherwise it shouldn’t have a cross. Government property is the possession of everyone, not just christians.” I was very proud of her.

        If the co-workers is a woman, she needs to be asked if she wants to keep her job because the kind of theocracy we could end up with might be one where the only work she can get is being used by some creep to pump out babies in the Republic of Gilead.

          I was on my way to the grocery store a week or so after the election behind an SUV with Trump stickers. I saw the woman that got out. We happened to be standing next to each other in the meat section so i started singing, to myself, Randy Rainbow’s “Grab ’em by the pussy”. She went away very quickly.

        The assumption that everybody else just agrees with them is what really gets me lol.

      • Friday

        Who even does that? For all they try to claim it’s a Christians-only holiday, they don’t even get their own symbolism they grafted onto folk customs: it’s ‘supposed to be’ a star or an angel cause it’s supposed to be about their demigod’s birth story, not execution. 🙂

        • RoFaWh

          The reality is that ever since the conversion of Christmas into an orgy of consumerism, it can only be considered a secular holiday.

          • Friday

            They always blame non-Christians or secularism for their own behavior, but they’re the ones who’ve made it that way, it’s the same people rushing the doors at ‘black Friday’ sales and all.

        Ya know, I don’t ever remember crosses on xmas trees, ever. And I grew up in a fundie baptist church. Every xmas they had a tree with NO cross just a angel on top (kinky!) and Santa visiting during xmas eve services. This was in the late 60’s to late 70’s.

      There are flat screen TVs mounted all over the cardio area.
      Since about a month before the election one TV is always turned to fox news.
      Then after the election two TVs were turned to fox.
      Yesterday there were 3 TVs turned to fox.
      I feel like Im in invasion of the body snatchers

      • GayOldLady

        In the South they’re all tuned to Fox Snooze.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          Oh I know. Going home to south carolina is an exercise in pain tolerance.

          • FAEN

            Right? I’m in NC so I feel your pain. It is funny though watching their brains try to comprehend the facts you’ve thrown at them. That always makes me chuckle.

      • MBear

        Gets your blood pressure up!

      • FAEN

        At my gym I ask them to change the channel. I refuse to listen to Cluster Fox while I try to rehab. Refuse.

      • SoCalGal20

        Pasadena isn’t even that conservative. I’d ask that somebody change at least one of the channels.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          Right? Im getting very close to saying something. But what? And id have to get off my machine, walk over to the counter and get the remote to change the channel. I find it easier to use a machine that doesnt have a direct view of goebbells tv.

      • Vista-Cruiser

        For some reason, Fox is the default station for most televisions in public places.

      One minor tiffle. The fake tree has to be used for about 20 years to be more carbon-efficient. And that’s not taking into account the chemicals and machinery I need to run to get the sap and embedded needles out of the rug. 🙂

      • RoFaWh

        Citation?

        I believe you, but not all will.

        It’s much like the rejection of stryrofoam coffee cups; they produce less each of pollution than paper ones. Paper making is a dirty business, though nowhere near as dirty today as it once was.

        • Treant

          There’s tons of references online; I was very careful to research before I bought mine.

          Most “live trees good” sites don’t account for the gas to go get it and take it home, energy used to grind it for composting (if it isn’t just thrown into the dump), and so on. Nor do they account for the carbon returned to the atmosphere when the tree, inevitably, rots in 3 years or so. At the most.

  • worstcultever

    Keith Olbermann suggested that Hillary should instruct all her electors to vote for Romney, then peel off enough puke electors to do the same, to beat this POS in the EC. I could live with that. I could also live with seeing Prez Romney tell this asshole to eat shit and go the fuck away.

    • Martin

      That’s be a great early Christmas present / miracle.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      I don’t think the economic policies would be a whole lot different under Romney, but social and foreign policy would be saner, Romney would uphold the Constitution, the separation of powers and freedom of the press, Romney would be smart enough to avoid conflicts of interest and divest from his companies while in office, and Romney is smart enough to know that you can’t just trash the entire social safety net without causing another great depression. So that would still be much better than Trump.

      But the problem would be Trump’s fan base. They view Romney as much as an “insider” as Clinton and hate him almost as much. Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan, Breitbart, Gingrich, the talibangelicals, etc. have always despised Romney and didn’t want him to get the nomination in ’12.

      • Chucktech

        Fuck Trump’s base. They’re far too stooopid to pay attention for too long. They’ll settle down after a while. Besides, it’s still not Hillary.

        • Cuberly

          GOP grinds gov to a halt over 8 years, refuses to work across the aisle, lies it’s ass off to spin their inaction.

          Trump supporters vote for even more GOPers as a way to “get revenge” against the immobile gov the GOP gave them.

          I agree, fuck Trump’s base.

      • Cuberly

        Jared Kushner was touting the campaigns supposed trillion dollar infrastructure plan yesterday. I can’t see rMoney doing anything close to that. But we’ve yet to see any solid policy from Hair Furor outside of promises.

        • That_Looks_Delicious

          Several publications that looked at Trump’s infrastructure plan back in November said it’s basically a giant giveaway for oil & gas companies and won’t do hardly anything for roads & bridges or municipal water. We’ll have to see what the final version looks like.

          • Cuberly

            If the GOP signs off on anything approximating a infrastructure/stimulus mega-give-away their patheticism will officially be off the charts.

    • thatotherjean

      My expectations have fallen so low, and my survival instincts have kicked in so strongly, that I could live with that. I am ashamed of myself, as a lifelong Democrat and bleeding-heart liberal; but I fear for the country, not to mention the rest of the world, under a Trump administration.

      • Cuberly

        rMoney may be a staunch capitalist mo mo, but he’s not fucking evil to the core like Great Leader. And despite an odd laugh he has somewhat of a Presidential air.

        • bzrd

          unlike the golden turd supporters, none of us here would go to a surgeon who had not attended medical school thus the fact that robmoney was the governor of Massachusetts makes him light years ahead of the stench

    • OdieDenCO

      Ryan would be the logical choice. A case could be made for the speaker of the house to be president based on being 3rd in the line of succession and a republican.

      • canoebum

        I think they have to choose from among the candidates. I don’t recall Ryan running. Did Romney? There were so many, it’s all just a hazy memory now, and not in a good way.

        • thatotherjean

          Urgh. No, Romney didn’t run this time. How do you feel about Lindsey Graham? He’s been showing signs of sanity, lately–at least, more signs of sanity than the rest of that pathetic bunch.

          • BudClark

            Sad to say, I *could* live with Miss Lindseybelle. Which only goes to show how far we’ve fallen.

          • RoFaWh

            Graham is demonstrating that there is actually some good and worthy in him. Unlike Drumpf.

          • canoebum

            Well, we would get the first Guatemalan pool boy for the White House. There’s that.

      • IamM

        Ryan and Kasich have the same drawback as Pence, or Trump minus global annihilation by tweet, total rubber stamp for the worst of the GOP agenda. Rmoney might resist some of the obscene overreach.

  • BHirsi

    Well, the violence and viciousness will be aimed at him when Hillary shall not be jailed or wall built. You have descended into fascism.

  • Clive Johnson

    In case you missed it, one of Trump’s deplorables sent reporter Kurt Eichenwald a tweet that had a strobe light effect, causing him to have a seizure, which was the intent:

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/12/16/1611913/-Trumpite-Triggers-Seizure-Using-Kurt-Eichenwald-s-Epilepsy-Second-Attempt-Since-October

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Twitter needs to shut down both Trump and that asshole’s account.

      This kind of shit should be considered an act of white nationalist terrorism and put on Trump’s doorstep.

      • worstcultever

        They did shut down the asshole’s account – I think Eichenwald wants him prosecuted

        • Clive Johnson

          Supposedly an investigation is underway and Eichenwald wants to see this deplorable in court.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    The thing about these type of leaders is that they don’t seem to anticipate that the violence and the bloodshed they pat their package to often ends up directed at them.

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      Or don’t care…

    • Silver Badger

      Yep, those second amendment rights are a bitch when the target is your own (trump’s) head.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    When incidents of racial violence occurred and Trump was questioned by the media, he pretended to not know it was happening and issued his lackluster “stop it” as his total response. Now that he actively acknowledges what is obvious to most sentient beings, he will have a harder time distancing himself from the next violent act.

    Much like people claim with ISIS, Donald Trump is actively radicalizing his base. He is guilty of promoting domestic terrorism.

  • ericxdc

    (hypnotic pinwheel warning…)

    “You are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?” Trump said. “But now, you’re mellow and you’re cool and you’re not nearly as vicious or violent, right?”

    OK, it’s finally starting to make sense. That’s how he controls his zombies.

    SO weird! Before commenting, I felt I needed to track down the whole speech, because I thought for SURE this was taken out of context and Trump must surely be actually mocking OTHERS for calling them violent. So I did, and he wasn’t. He really was describing them in those terms with admiration. I keep thinking DT’s awfulness can’t surprise me any longer, and I keep underestimating it.

    In this same speech the audience started loudly chanting “Lock her up! Lock her up1” DT smiled and paused to let them do it, then laughingly said “That’s so terrible.” Then continued his speech.

    This is the President of the United States of America.

    By the way, all those “Blacks for Trump” signs at this event that Trump people carefully positioned within the camera frame at the front? With the “Gods2.com” URL? They were passed out by <a href="A number directly in front of Trump are waving the same sign "Blacks for Trump. On the other side, it says "Hillary Will Start Word War III." At the bottom is a website URL, Gods52.com. a murderous maniac whose website is filled with Illuminati conspiracy ravings. An October story about this psycho:

    The man who has appeared behind Donald Trump at numerous south Florida rallies bearing a “Blacks for Trump” sign is a former member of the murderous Yahweh ben Yahweh cult… the man, who also goes by the names Maurice Woodside and Michael Symonette, was a former member of the Yahweh ben Yahweh cult. In 1990, the group’s charismatic leader, Hulon Mitchell Jr., was charged for conspiracy to murder. He required inductees to kill people to gain entry to the cult.

    Though “Michael” was charged for allegedly conspiring in two murders and his brother testified that he stuck a sharpened stick into one man’s eyeball, he was not convicted…“Michael” made a name for himself in the Miami area in recent years as a virulently anti-gay, anti-liberal preacher…

    The Trump campaign has positioned him at the front of the crowd at multiple events, including a Sept. 17 rally in downtown Miami and another on Oct. 12 in Lakeland.

    The “Blacks for Trump” signs “Michael” passes out at rallies feature the URL to his website, Gods2.com, which is full of anti-Hillary Clinton conspiracy videos. Visitors can also purchase “Trump & Republicans Are Not Racist Gods2.com” shirts for $20.

    The only ones who can create higher pay are workers themselves organized by the union left and socialists working to unionize millions and raise the minimum wage. Trump will oppose that with all his power and the movement will grow.
