Black Muslim chases, tackles white Trump supporter after San Jose rally, brags on Twitter

ss5-575x268A series of photos at the Gateway Pundit shows a man identified as a black Muslim chasing and tackling a young white Trump supporter after a campaign rally in San Jose, California.

Here’s a few of the photos posted by Kristinn Taylor:




According to Taylor, the man, going by the name “Houdini,” had been tweeting about “My Ramadan.”

He later posted an ABC News video of the tackle:

He also retweeted posts congratulating him on the tackle:

A number of leftists, including a Vox editor, justified the liberal violence, blaming Trump for what took place in San Jose.



Vox founder Ezra Klein condemned Rensin’s comments and reportedly suspended him.

Vox writer Dara Lind, however, said that Trump supporters can expect more of this kind of behavior:

A lot of political commentators recognize that Donald Trump poses a categorical threat to established norms of American democracy, governance, and society. They believe that he represents (whether intentionally or not) an ideology that is hostile to groups of nonwhite Americans.

In other words, they believe there are Americans to whom Trump poses an existential threat.

You don’t have to agree with protesters beating up Trump supporters, or even sympathize with them, to understand this. There are people who feel Trump’s rise puts their lives in danger. And many people make decisions about what actions are “appropriate” differently when they feel personally under threat.

Lind added:

So if you’re a young person who reacts viscerally to the things Donald Trump says about Mexicans or Muslims, what do you see as the available, appropriate response? Furthermore, if you’re a young person who personally feels the effects of Trumpist attitudes — if you feel that your life is under threat because you’re nonwhite, and you don’t feel that anyone appears to care — what do you think needs to be done?

I don’t know about you, but this almost sounds like a very thinly-veiled threat.  Is Lind suggesting that Trump supporters may be killed for attending a rally?

And if violent protests at Trump rallies continue to escalate, and continue to get coverage, what sort of people are likely to show up to the next one?

Who knows, but after what happened in San Jose, one can only imagine…
