The Young Turks on Women’s ‘Dump Trump’ Demonstration

This is a video by The Young Turks’ Jordan Cheriton and Eric Byler of a demonstration against Donald Trump held at South Bend against those attending the man’s rally. The demonstrators aren’t exclusively women – they also include many men, holding up placards. Many of them are naturally at Trump’s contemptuous and dismissive comments about women. Others are more concerned with Trump’s general hatred and divisiveness of America’s ethnically diverse society. Two young Black women point out that they’ve got Mexicans, Poles, Jews, Muslims and all sorts of people in modern America, and that you can have Black pride, White pride, Hispanic pride – whatever, without being hateful to other groups, as Donald Trump is. One Hispanic lady states that she dislikes Trump’s attitude towards Latinos and Mexicans. She makes it plain that, contra Trump, she does not hate America. She loves it, having been an illegal immigrant, but now officially got American nationality. And as for Trump having considerable Latin American support, she makes it clear that he doesn’t have the support of her, any of her family or her neighbourhood. One of the banners held by the women ask how people would like it if someone said that about their wives or daughters. And one Black woman, asked about women supporting Trump, said that she believes it’s because they’ve been brainwashed by their husbands or fathers. She states very clearly that no way would a man get away with saying those thing to her.

Another woman tellingly says that she’s worried about Trump’s legacy. He’s encouraging all these racists to come out of the closet, so to speak. He could go tomorrow, but they’ll remain.

I’m putting this up because it shows just how inclusive and non-racist the opposition to Trump is. It’s not just a case of angry Social Justice Warriors taking offence at perceived insults and slights to their particular gender/ ethnic group or sexual orientation. It’s people of all different races and both genders, annoyed and concerned not just at Trump’s attacks on their group, but about his attacks on other minority groups and women, and the destructive effect this is having on America Society.
