Donald Trump’s Words Pushes Men To Violence

Donald Trump.

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Sept. 4, 2015: Whoever said sticks and stones may break your bones but words could never hurt must have been smoking something bad. While Donald Trump continues to ride the polls on the backs of mainly non college educated Americans by deriding immigrants and threatening to deport the “illegals,” the “crazies” John McCain referred to have awoken.

While Trump insists he does not condone violence, his followers seem to be taking his fiery rhetoric and negative diatribe and adding action to them.

Police in Boston say Scott Leader, 38, and his brother, Steve Leader, 30, recently came upon a Hispanic homeless man sleeping near a train station as they were returning from a Red Sox game last week.

The two, without provocation, beat the man with a metal pole repeatedly and urinated on him before walking away laughing, according to a press release from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.

“Donald Trump was right,” the two men from South Boston said, according to police, as they beat the man. “All these illegals need to be deported.”

Let me repeat this again: “All these illegals need to be deported.”

Sounds like a term clear out of the Trump playbook!

The 58-year-old victim who was born in Central Mexico according to the consul general of Mexico in Boston, ironically is not undocumented. He came to the United States in the 1980s, speaks English, has paid taxes and has his own Social Security number.

According to the Boston Globe, after working as a janitor in a veterinary facility in Chicago he moved to Boston where he still works but cannot afford housing.

He was treated at the Boston Medical Center for a broken nose and serious bruising across his ribs, among other injuries.

The Leader brothers now face a number of assault and battery charges as well as gross lewdness, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office. They are expected back in court on Sept. 3.

Trump’s initial response last week was to call the attack “a shame” and to say that his followers are “passionate.”

Then he took to Twitter to add: “We need energy and passion, but we must treat each other with respect. I would never condone violence.”

The Mexican government has condemned the attack even as critics insist Trump’s disparaging remarks about immigrants on the campaign trail is creating a climate of fear.

“There’s a lot of indignation in our community,” Patricia Montes, executive director of Centro Presente, an immigrant-rights group in East Boston told the Globe. “People are afraid that there will be more attacks.”

What Trump fails to realize is that while this summer of ignorance may be stirring up the red neck base as he plays the role of concerned leader and acts like he cares about their future, come 2016, the GOP’s fate of complete annihilation will be sealed forever!

No longer is the majority of America’s voting bloc White. To win a national election, any party needs the immigrant and black voting base or else it’s a no go. Just ask Mitt!

And while The Donald rides on the backs of those filled with hate in their hearts and smelling blood, maybe he should listen to the advice of one Iowa Republican who recently told Politico: “He’s solidly put an anchor around the neck of our party, and we’ll sink because of it.”

Let me add, not only will the GOP sink with Trump but they will go down like the Titanic and immigrant voters will be the iceberg that sends helps exterminate that ship into oblivion.
