Muslim Woman Harassed And Ejected From S.C. Trump Rally For Silent Protest

Rose Hamid silently protesting at a Trump rally before being harassed and thrown out

Just when you thought Trump supporters couldn't sink any lower they always seem to be able to slime their way down the evolutionary ladder by one more rung to prove you wrong.

First they kicked, punched and choked Latinos who protested Trumps incendiary rhetoric towards Mexicans. Then they beat and kicked a Black Lives Matter protestor while yelling "sieg heil" and "light that mother-fucker on fire" for protesting Trumps racist rhetoric. Last week they threw Bernie Sanders supporters into the cold without their coats just because it was funny.

And now?

Trump and his minions have seen fit to verbally attack and throw out a lone Muslim woman from a rally in Rock Hill, S.C. merely for standing in silent protest against the campaign's Islamophobic messages. 

The woman, a 56-year-old flight attendant named Rose Hamid, went to the rally wearing a t-shirt that read “Salam, I come in peace” . Halfway through the rally, when Trump spewed his Islamophobic line about refugees fleeing violence in Syria being affiliated with ISIS, Hamid and a friend stood in silent protest. That was all the prompting Trump rally-goers needed.

Hamid recalls some people in the crowd “turned pretty ugly” towards her, shouting...

"Trump, Trump, Trump!" ... "USA, USA, USA!" ... "Get out — do you have a bomb? Do you have a bomb?"

In the video a pair of white men can be seen approaching Hamid. One is seen speaking animatedly, while the other steps in front of her and begins making the “thumbs down” gesture.

As she was then escorted out Trump couldn't help himself and had to throw out this unbelievably ironic and ignorant comment...

There is hatred against us that is unbelievable. It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred,

Indeed Donald, indeed.

Later Hamid granted an interview to CNN’s Don Lemon who asked her why she did what she did. 

Rose simply stated...

Because I don’t want to think of them as ‘those people.’I think that’s what the problem is, that we look at people and we categorize them as ‘those people’ who are bad people and ‘these people’ are the good people. I believe that people in all camps are decent people as we get to know them.

 Trump could only dream of saying something so dignified.
