Trump’s Racist Rhetoric and the slow-motion civil war

Mahud Villalaz received second-degree burns to his face …Lauren Justice for The New York Time

 

Resident House idiot Louie Gohmert of Texas said that House Democrats’ ongoing inquiry into the Trump’s criminal dealings in Ukraine is “about to push this country to a civil war if they were to get their wishes.” “And if there’s one thing I don’t want to see in my lifetime, I don’t want to ever have participation in, it’s a civil war. Some historian, I don’t remember who said, guns are only involved in the last phase of a civil war.”

Well, it looks like battery acid is involved in the early phase……..

Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett said Monday that Donald Trump is responsible for violent hate crimes like an acid attack which left a 42-year-old man with second-degree burns in the city on Friday.

Mahud Villaluz told a reporter from WISN that a man confronted him over a parking spot, called him “an illegal,” and told him to “go back to [his] country” before throwing battery acid at him. The incident was caught on surveillance video and a 61-year-old man was arrested in connection with the crime on Monday.

“My concern is that more and more people feel that because the president is saying it that this is okay,” Mayor Barrett said. “It’s not okay, it’s horrible.”

“Everybody knows what’s happening,” the mayor said of Trump’s encouragement of anti-immigrant sentiment and even violence. “It’s because the president is talking about it on a daily basis that people feel that they have a license to go after Hispanic people, and it’s wrong.”

The attack on Villaluz comes six months after the president laughed at a rally in Panama City Beach, Florida after an attendee shouted that migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border should be shot.

“Only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement,” Trump said at the rally.

Villaluz is a U.S. citizen who was born in Peru. He described the alleged attack in a press conference on Sunday.

“He started arguing, saying, ‘Why you came here and invade my country? Why you came here illegally?'” he told reporters. “[I said], ‘Sir, you don’t know my status. I’m a U.S. citizen too. He got mad when I told him everybody came here from somewhere else.”

“The rise of anti-Latino hate crimes during the Trump administration is directly related to Trump’s extreme anti-Latino rhetoric and deeds,” stated the Progressive PAC Latino Victory Fund.

Just wait until Trump is unelected and arrested, these crazies will go completely berserk.
