Mother Jones, a liberal news publication, about 12 hours ago posted a truly disturbing yet incredibly important video, that has gone viral. As of this writing it has over 2 something million views. The video is a compilation of footage of 1960's North Carolina and Mississippi lunch counter sit ins by African-Americans fighting for civil rights – and being harassed and beaten for it – along with a segregation protest in Alabama, and the beating of Freedom Rider Jim Peck.
The images are disturbing enough, but the filmmaker adds Donald Trump's voice as the "narration," and it becomes almost surreal, and definitely fascistic. The audio you've heard before. Trump speaking at his popular rallies, railing against his protests, telling guards to "get that guy out of here," and saying, "in the good old days this doesn't happen, because they used to treat them very, very rough," but you hear him speak as you see protestors beaten, and it's beyond upsetting. "I'd like to punch him in the face, I'll tell ya," Trump says in the voiceover, as a white man beats a Black man. The video is less than a minute and a half, but it should be required viewing for every American.
