CNN was all too happy to give one self-proclaimed “silent protester” a voice.
Saying she didn’t plan to disrupt the event, a Muslim woman wearing a hijab and a yellow Star of Davidwas escorted out of a Donald Trump campaign rally on Friday when she disrupted the event.
And she caught an earful from Trump supporters in Rock Hill, South Carolina, over her staged antics — CNN interviewed the woman BEFORE the rally.
In a story from BizPacReview:
Rose Hamid strategically positioned herself behind Trump and stood up in silent protest wearing a shirt that read “Salam, I come in peace,” when the candidate began talking about Syrian refugees, according to the network.
Hamid, 56, and one other man with her were wearing yellow stars similar to those worn by Jews during the Holocaust — the only difference being that no one has shoved 6 million Muslims into ovens.
‘There is hatred against us that is unbelievable,” Trump told the audience as Hamid was being removed. “It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred.”
Full of chutzpah, Hamid displayed the same stereotyping she claimed to be protesting.
“I figured that most Trump supporters probably never met a Muslim so I figured that I’d give them the opportunity to meet one,” she told CNN beforehand. “I really don’t plan to say anything. I don’t want to be disrespectful but if he says something that I feel needs answering I might — we’ll just see what strikes me.”
Hamid is the co-founder and president of Muslim Women of the Carolinas and writes a column for The Charlotte Observer about her faith, according to the Daily Mail.
I don’t know about you, but I’m guessing Hamid was most likely a paid observer and probably sent there by Hillary herself or CNN. Trump is Hillary’s biggest threat since being up in many of the national polls as the front runner. Since Trump spoke out against letting any more Muslims into the United States, the media, liberals, this administration and others are out in full force with SCAMS! I mean come on….really? She speaks to CNN PRIOR to the rally. She positions herself right behind the Donald! What did she think would happen? Reminds me of the scam the “Clock Boy” pulled earlier….to gain media attention. What a SCAM!
I have to agree with The Donald on this one….‘There is hatred against us that is unbelievable,” and “It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred.”….just ask the families of the victims of San Bernardino.
