“Kill her.”

“Trump that bitch!”

“Build a wall — kill them all.”

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.

I'm so glad they're documenting this filth.

1. Go to FoxNews website and see the comments too. Lots of crazies have come out of the woodwork.

2. It reminded me of a 60s era Klan rally.

I was in college, in Texas, and the Klan was big. They held Sunday socials, rodeos, car shows and parades, and they figured prominently in local business, churches, government and the police. The one place where they didn't find a willing audience was the college campus. The admin shocked the community by welcoming "colored" students, and while there were local black and brown and red kids, we had many more ethnicities that came from the airbase where foreign pilots came to train, many bringing their families.

The Klan would react by suddenly converging on campus and the mob would start yelling and cursing, shouting the same vile things that I heard coming from those Trump supporters. Back in the day, they wanted to scare us, to drive the "foreigners" out and demand that the admin stop corrupting "their colored folk" (when Trump asked where "my African-American" was, it was deja vu) with stuff like an education, and now, nearly 50 years later, it's back again.
