Supporters of Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke were seen showing their contempt for President Donald Trump at an El Paso counter-Trump rally in an unconventional way.
Beto supporters took it upon themselves to create and destroy a life-sized piñata of the President with baseball bats. It’s unclear how many of the effigies were made, but a video revealed one being thoroughly struck and likely destroyed by a rally-goer.
O’Rourke, formerly a member of Congress representing El Paso, was holding a rally to distract from President Trump’s ‘Finish the Wall’ event down the road. He was considerably outdrawn in his own home city, with photos of his event revealing the presence of merely hundreds of supporters. Meanwhile, the President’s rally drew almost 10,000 people in the reliably Democratic Texas city.
Watch the disturbing scene at O’Rourke’s sparsely attended rally:
The individuals seen striking the Trump pinata seem to be masked, and the second seen on tape may very well be a minor. If so, he’s likely to have been instructed to attack the effigy of the President by his parents or guardians- demonstrating questionable parenting on their behalf.
It’s common for people to strike or burn effigies of political figures in other countries, but traditionally such a display would be seen as undemocratic or hateful in the United States. The Trump pinata was also created holding a Russian flag, potentially leaving O’Rourke’s mob open to accusations of anti-Slavic sentiment.
As the craftily made piñata was struck with a baseball bat, onlookers could be heard droning on about ‘hatred’ and ‘racism,’ apparently unaware of the irony in accusing others of hatred while attacking effigies of political figures in a crazed frenzy.
These Beto supporters may find like-minded company with radical Islamists in Iran, who have been seen destroying or burning effigies of President Trump with an Israeli flag shirt in similar protests.
Perhaps the former Texas Congressman can take guidance from the anti-American Islamists in Iran for planning his potential Presidential campaign events.

VIDEO: Raucous Brawl Erupts at Bernie Sanders Rally Over Gun Rights
One man was evidently wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt.
A raucous brawl erupted live on camera during a Bernie Sanders rally in Colorado in Monday, apparently fueled by a disagreement over gun rights between two Sanders supporters.
Footage of the brawl surfaced Monday night, showing two men aggressively wrestling and crashing into a restricted area of the event in Denver. Sanders’ voice can be heard in the background of the video, moving on with his campaign speech without referring to the fight.

CBS 4 Denver claims to have been sent video documenting the beginning of the altercation. One individual in the fight, who spoke to the local news organization describing his side of the story, was wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt, intending to display his support of gun rights despite being a progressive Sanders supporter. Another man took offense to the shirt’s supposed slight to the Black Lives Matter, and the disagreement boiled over into a violent incident.
The men weren’t removed from the rally after security stepped in to disrupt the ridiculous brawl. They were instead separated for the duration of the Sanders rally.
It’s somewhat pathetic that a white Sanders supporter feels it incumbent on himself to assault an individual who is black for wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt, if the other participant’s account is to be believed. It’s even more concerning for Sanders’ political movement that some among his supporters can’t tolerate simple political disagreements over commonly supported issues such as gun rights, going to the lengths of starting a violent altercation at a campaign event.
All in all a poor look for Sanders supporters, to have a fight break out between two of their own over an utterly childish political disagreement. If you don’t like someone’s mildly provocative T-shirt, just look somewhere else.
