Pro-Trump Rally In Arizona Slams Minorities (Video)

A "March 4 Trump: Spirit of America Rally" held at the Arizona state capitol in Phoenix on March 4 included hundreds of attendees, along with some white nationalists, armed militia members and elected officials (video below).

The Arizona Republic noted that many folks wore "Make America Great Again" red hats from the 2016 campaign. Some of the attendees included ex-Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, state Treasurer Jeff DeWit and state schools Superintendent Diane Douglas.

During a speech, Republican state Rep. Anthony Kern of Arizona revived a Trump campaign chant against former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, notes

"And I heard 'lock her up, lock her up, lock her up!' And we still need to pursue that!" Kern said.

Phoenix sits in Maricopa County, which gave Trump a bigger win than any other county in the U.S., according to Dan Cohen of The Real News Network, who filmed the event.

"This is America," said one attendee. "We don't want Sharia law. Christian country."

"If you don’t like it here, go to Syria, go to someplace else," another attendee was filmed shouting at a small number of protesters.

“I don’t want them, as a veteran I don’t want them, let them go back home,” another attendee said. "If they’ve got a problem, let Saudi Arabia take care of them."

A 13-year-old Trump supporter said: "I was the one who started the chant, 'Build the wall.' It was cool ... If she really is that Jewish, she should go back to her country, that girl right there."

"Where are the gay pride events in Gaza?" asked a man sporting a megaphone. "I have a gay friend who'd like to go to one."

Some attendees insisted immigrants did not want to assimilate in America.

An African-American man said that minorities and people of color need to stand up for white people.

A Hispanic man added, "The Mexican culture, forget it. I am still proud I was born in Mexico, but you don't see me waving the Mexican flag. You don't see me out there saying, 'Viva Mexico.' And I do not speak Spanish in public."

Babeu warned the crowd that "people with terrorist intentions" will use America's unsecured borders.

An unidentified woman expressed her support for the heavily-armed militiamen, whom she called servicemen who "work their butts off to make sure this country is safe."

Tim Horn, the emcee for the event, tried to revive the debunked claim that former President Barack Obama's birth certificate was not real. Horn also said Democrats were anti-American, and wanted to "wipe us out."

One attendee holding a "#Deport McCain" sign said there was reason to believe Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona was "working for the enemy" when he was held as a POW in North Vietnam.

The attendee also said that Pizzagate, a false conspiracy theory about Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, should be investigated because "there’s a lot there."

Mark Del Maestor, a Vietnam veteran, told the crowd that the "enemies of freedom" infiltrated the U.S. and "filled our colleges, our universities and our schools."

Maestor later told The Real News that the "enemies of freedom" are "liberals, the progressives, the communists, and now the Sharia law Muslims."

"Sharia law Muslims will go into a school, and kill all the kids," Maestor insisted. "Sharia law Muslims are already in America just like cancer."

Another attendee had this message for protesters: "I just want to let them know that I can’t wait for the liberal genocide to begin."

"That’s the way to make America great again," the attendee told The Real News. "Because liberals are destroying the country."
