I get the impression you don't know what an apologist is.

Bystanders yell anti-Trump taunts as man beaten after car crash

Social media video captures a West Side beating while onlookers shout about President-elect Donald Trump

A man shown in a viral video getting punched and kicked as a crowd yells, "Don't vote Trump" acknowledges he supports Donald Trump but said Thursday that's not what started the beating on the West Side the day after the presidential election.

David Wilcox, 49, said he was about to turn left from Kedzie Avenue to Roosevelt Road around 1 p.m. Wednesday when a black sedan pulled up and scraped the right side of his Pontiac Bonneville.

"I stopped and parked. And I asked if they had insurance, and the next thing that I knew they were beating the s--- out of me," Wilcox said Thursday.

A phone video shot from a bus stop at the intersection shows Wilcox being knocked to the pavement as five people gather around him. A man in the group straddles his back and punches Wilcox with both hands.

As the fight picks up, people on the sidewalk away from the struggle yell taunts that include "You voted Trump," "Beat his ass" and "Don't vote Trump." ...

Wilcox said he did vote for Trump on Tuesday, but no one in the crowd would have known that. He said the taunts appeared to come from people watching the beating, including one person at the bus stop who he heard say, "Yeah, it's one of them white boy Trump guys."

President Bernie Sanders seems to be an opportunity missed...I guess Americans have 4 years to consider what is wrong with their electoral system where Clinton actually won more primary votes than Trump

I think the saddest thing about the protests and riots going on- Trump supporters instantly assume all are democrats that love Hillary. I highly doubt all are democrats.

This election divided the country more than ever, in my view. People are being extra nasty towards others that didn't vote how they did. Trump brought a lot of hate out of people, even if his supporters refuse to say so. It's unfortunate how people think one person can somehow "fix" America. As I've said before- look at who Trump is surrounded by: people that are racist, people that hate LGBT and so on. They will make life rough on LGBT people. Remember that North Carolina bathroom law thats garbage? I honestly think that type of crap will spread more and more due to Trump and his friends.

Why can't everyone in USA have equal rights? Its 2016 for crying out loud! People of every race, religion and gender deserves to be treated fairly!

They're a bunch of crybabies throwing a temper tantrum. I think the National Guard should be brought in.

Some perspective for the Trump crowd:

I've heard it said now that people here were more frightened and more depressed on 11/9/2016 than on 9/11/2001.

I can't disagree.


I don't think that proves the point you're intending it to.

Only in the event they get violent, aside from that people do have the right to peacefully protest for any reason I am pretty sure.
