Watch How Trump Handles BLM Protester. Warning: It’s Not PC

A sole Black Lives Matter protester, Mercutio Southall, was kicked out of a packed rally held for Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump in Birmingham, Alabama Saturday night.

According to Fox New Insider, Trump, who vowed to never be bullied off his own stage after Bernie Sanders pathetically was this summer by two young Black Lives Matter protesters, called to “get him the hell out of here” numerous times (about ten) once he was aware of the disturbance while an altercation involving Southall simultaneously ensued in the crowd.

Although Trump scored major points with his base—fans erupted with cheer when they heard the convicted demands to remove the disrupting protester from their leader’s pursed lips—he has also been on the receiving end of some serious heat relating to Southall and the altercation which broke out at the rally.

Liberal media outlet such as New York Magazine and Gawker both ran headlines ( “Black Lives Matter Protester Tackled, Beaten by Crowd at Trump Rally in Alabama” and “Donald Trump Supporters Filmed Kicking, Punching Black Lives Matter Protester at Rally in Alabama,” respectively) which claimed that Southall was “tackled,” “beaten,” and “punched,” although none of this can be confirmed on the video.

Southall spoke to BET to tell his side of the story. He said that he was punched, choked and called the “N” word. He also claimed to have punched back and to not subscribed to that “turn-the-other-cheek (explicit).”

“They said ‘Go home, n****r!’ and somebody punched me. I punched back. You know don’t do the turn-the-other-cheek [expletive]… I got enough people off of me that I was able to get up a little bit. Somebody got behind me and started trying to choke me out.”

No use of the “N” word is audible from the video available and the punching and choking is not seen either—but there is indeed shoving and at least one man facing Southall with his fists up.

According to CNN, Birmingham Police Lt., Sean Edwards described the incident as a “scuffle,” saying three people were asked to leave afterward and that the protestor (Southall) “did not require medical attention.”

If at least half a dozen people were involved in the “scuffle,” and serious violent acts like kicking and punching were involved, as CNN has reported, it’s curious that no police reports were filed, no injures were reported, and only three people were booted from the rally as opposed to the “half dozed” mentioned.

Trump has condemned the pusillanimous behavior of Bernie Sanders, stating that the senator was “politically correct”and let two young women “take over his microphone” while promising that that would “not happen” with him, at the Birmingham rally.

In stark contrast to Trump’s reaction a BLM protester, here is Senator Sanders when his rally is taken over by activists:

Hillary Clinton also had a run-in with the BLM folks at a rally last month, and she too took the appeasement route. Hilary is visibly smiling and nodding along with the protesters and then panders, as one may expect.

Per the Daily Caller, Trump spoke out about the altercation on Fox and Friends as follows:

“(Southall) was so obnoxious and so loud, he was screaming,” said Trump. “I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday, 10,000 people, and this guy started screaming by himself and they — I don’t know, rough up, he should have been — maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”

Donald Trump has unapologetically kept two promises: remaining politically incorrect and refusing to be bullied off his own rally stage.
