New York Times Publishes Video of Horrible Scenes at Trump Rallies
The New York Times has posted a video that breaks with their long tradition of not publishing profanity, to show what it’s like in the middle of the rallies held by Donald Trump. And as you might expect, it’s a disturbing morass of bigotry and hate speech: Voices From Donald Trump’s Rallies, Uncensored.
New York Times reporters have spent over a year covering Donald J. Trump’s rallies, witnessing so many provocations and heated confrontations at them that the cumulative effect can be numbing: A sharp sting that quickly dulls from repetition.
But what struck us was the frequency with which some Trump supporters use coarse, vitriolic, even violent language — in the epithets they shout and chant, the signs they carry, the T-shirts they wear — a pattern not seen in connection with any other recent political candidate, in any party.
