Muslim Woman Removed from Trump Rally After Silently Protesting

Is it just me? Every time I see or hear about Trump having someone removed from his rallys it hits a nerve.  So, only those that agree with him are allowed to hear him spout his stupidity?  I have heard of protesters being removed with force; Trump supporters spitting in the face of protesters. Now we have this lady removed for standing silently in a crowd.  First it was the Mexicans, next it is the Muslims, how long before Black Americans are being loaded on a boat and headed back to Africa? Or poor people are rounded up and put in a few mid-western states, and disregarded until they can bring up their net worth. I know that is a little drastic. What scares me is the anger, hate and disrespect for other humans that keeps being displayed by the same type of humans that abused, killed, raped, maimed blacks for many years.  Yes, look at a Trump rally 'crowd' - really? all they are missing are pointed white hats.  Everyone has seen how a mania can be caused when someone excites a crowd into a hateful angry mob, causing irreparable damage.

                          A Muslim woman who stood in silent protest at a rally for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump was removed from the event Friday night in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The woman, who identified herself as 56-year-old Rose Hamid, stood up in a section of seats just behind Trump wearing a hijab, a shirt that said "Salam, I come in peace," and a Star of David that looked like the symbol Jews were forced to sew onto their clothing during the Holocaust. While she was escorted out, Trump supporters in the arena where the rally was held yelled at her to "get out." Hamid said that one supporter screamed "You have a bomb, you have a bomb." Unlike other Trump protesters — which have become a fixture at his packed campaign events — Hamid did not yell or disrupt Trump's speech. She told CNN she came to the event to show Trump supporters a peaceful image of a Muslim person, rather than the terrorists and militants portrayed on TV. "This demonstrates how when you start dehumanizing the other it can turn people into very hateful, ugly people," Hamid told CNN. "It needs to be known."
