Trump Supporter Tells US-Latino Journalist to ‘Get Out of My Country’

This is another piece from The Young Turks about the disgusting racism amongst Trump’s supporters. It’s a clip of the Univision reporter, Jorge Ramos, being confronted by one of Trump’s supporters. Mr Ramos is a US citizen, but this counts for nothing. The Trumpista tells him very clearly to ‘get out of my country’.

This understandably provokes a strong rant from Cenk Uygur. Uygur’s ethnically Turkish, so the kind of racism that’s espoused and promoted by Trump and his crew directly affects him. He points out that America stands for ‘liberty and equality for all’, and that all Americans, regardless of their race, ethnicity or creed, are equally citizens. He states that the man is upset because he – meaning his people, White Americans – used to own everything – and now there are more minorities. Tough. If he doesn’t understand that America stands for all of us, says Uygur, then he’s un-American and should leave.

This is the gutter racism at the heart of the Trump campaign. And unfortunately, it’s got its cheerleaders over here too. Guess what? One of them is the Daily Mail. I can remember back in the 1990s they were running stories about embittered Mexicans overrunning the US southwestern states, like Texas, New Mexico and California, loudly proclaiming that it was all really their land. Trump’s a disgrace, and so is the Daily Mail and Conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic.
