'F*** the 2nd Amendment': The 18 Most Idiotic Sayings Trump Protesters Are Clinging to in 2020

Share

President Donald Trump’s “Keep America Great” rally in Phoenix on Wednesday drew tens of thousands of supporters, but also crowds of protesters demonstrating against the president and his conservative policies.

While the demonstrators remained peaceful, vulgar terms like “f— the Second Amendment,” “fascist pig” and “f— ICE” were all too common.

The protesters also brought out a few of the old favorites — “Nazi scum,” “Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go,” and “Not my president” — as they gathered at a designated “free speech” zone outside of Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where the rally was being held.

Here are 18 sentiments anti-Trump protesters are clinging to in 2020

“F— the Second Amendment.”

One protester walked by several Trump supporters, yelling profanities and disparaging the Second Amendment as he did.

“Do you support the Second Amendment?” The Western Journal asked.

“No I do not,” the man responded. “I’m a victim of gun violence.”

“F— the Second Amendment.”

“Fascist Pig.”

Many demonstrators were holding signs calling Donald Trump a fascist in one degree or another, but when The Western Journal approached one of the protesters, who chose to identify herself only as “Gabs,” and asked what Trump has done that makes him a fascist, the answer was ambiguous.

“All of his policies and stuff, it just feels like another rise to fascism,” she replied, not adding anything more.

“Antifa” is anti-free speech — and they admit it.

Outside of the rally, a group of young men with covered faces was holding an “anti-fascist,” or antifa, flag.

Do you think anti-Trumpers have lost their minds?

“I think it’s important for the community to stand up to fascist organizing,” one of the young men told The Western Journal.

“I oppose [Trump’s] denigration of immigrants coming to this country, he added. “I oppose the fact that he upholds a systemically racist and colonial system.”

And what about the right of people who disagree with antifa’s leftist principles to express their own views?

“I believe in suppressing the speech of people whose ideas I don’t want to gain institutional hold,” the man said.

“Any Functioning Adult 2020.”

A protester named Kelly told The Western Journal she felt like she wanted to do more than just whine about the president.

She said her sign, which read “Any Functioning Adult 2020,” was really an “Anyone but Trump” sign, despite the variety of views among the Democratic presidential primary candidates.

“I’ve got to make some decisions later,” she said, referring to the Democratic candidates, “but I think most of them have some really good options for us.”

“F— ICE.”

The back of one protester’s shirt said it all.

“F— ICE,” the shirt said in reference to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency tasked with enforcing America’s immigration laws within our borders.

In recent years, the “Abolish ICE” movement has gained traction, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, calling for the agency to be broken up.

“WTF News: We Televise Fear.”

One of the more popular signs from the protesters characterized Trump as a Nazi pig on one side and bore the words “WTF News: We Televise Fear” in the style of Fox News’ logo on the other.

While the latter was not an attack on Trump, Fox News has been under attack from the left as the president continues to criticize other establishment news outlets for spreading “fake news” about him and his administration.

Cody, who was holding one of these signs, told The Western Journal that news outlets shouldn’t “scare people into beliefs,” but instead should try to “bring people together.”

“Don’t sacrifice truth,” he added. “Just don’t go for the biggest attention-grabber that you can get and then embellish what’s going on.”

“Save America. Die Trump Die.”

One protester wearing a “Make America Gay Again” cap was handing out flyers with a suggested chant written on them.

“Save America!” the flyer read. “Die Trump Die.”

Lest anyone think he was calling for violence against the president, the flyers called on Trump to die of “Natural Causes,” a “Heart Attack” or a “Stroke.”

“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”

One of the most common chants of the evening was, “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”

Hundreds of protesters chanted this in unison with drums helping keep the beat.

“Nazi Scum, Nazi Scum.”

Protesters standing in the designated “free speech” zone yelled a number of things, including the old favorite that likens Trump supporters to Nazis.

“Nazi scum, Nazi scum,” the protesters chanted at one point.

“No hate! No wall.”

As protesters moved along the designated free speech area, they chanted “No hate! No wall!”

Donald Trump is “a cancer.”

Speaking to The Western Journal outside the rally venue, protester Louis Albin projected far more calmness than his “Grabbing Our P—y” sign suggested.

Still, he wanted people to know he’s vehemently anti-Trump.

“I think our country is in a complete downfall with this guy in office,” Albin said. “He’s breaking all the rules, all the norms.”

Because of Trump’s “intense” power over the Senate, he added “nothing’s been able to get done.”

“This guy’s a cancer on our democratic process,” Albin said. (0:40)

So who would he like to see replace Trump?

“I’m Team Anybody that runs against Trump that can win,” he said, though “I’d like to see a woman president.”

“Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go.”

The chant that was probably used the most throughout the night was “Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go.”

Do you think this is what Nancy Pelosi said to herself during the impeachment trial?

“Faith is Killing Us.”

A man waving a “Faith is Killing Us” sign wanted people to know that religion is “stupid.”

“G–d— moron,” he told one person challenging his sentiments. “How many cultures has your religion killed off. You f—ing morons.

“Are you against all religion or just Christianity?” The Western Journal asked.

“Faith,” he replied. “Pretending to know what you don’t know is stupid. It’s for children.”

The man encouraged people to base their beliefs on “reason” instead.

“Not my president.”

This one isn’t new. Those against Trump have made it abundantly clear over the last three years that they don’t respect his election.

It’s been three years, and he was even acquitted during the impeachment trial, but protesters are still crying, “Not my president.”

“Protect Sacred Land.”

While Trump’s border wall was heavily protested Wednesday evening, a small crowd of people held signs that were more specific.

Their signs read: “Protect Sacred Land,” “Human Remains Are Still Human! Respect Them!” and “Tear Down the Wall.”

The signs allude to the recent tension between the Tohono O’odham tribe and Trump’s administration after the tribe claimed sacred burial sites were blown up to build the wall. U.S. Customs and Border Protection denied the claims to KTVK, however.

The U.S. is “under a dictatorship.”

One man’s form of protest — a flagpole featuring a North Korean flag over an upside-down American flag — turned plenty of heads.

“North Korea symbolizes the dictatorship we are underneath right now,” the protester, Jorge Soria, told The Western Journal. “And this is the chaos that we are in right now, and it’s gonna come.”

Oh, and one more thing: “Police are the terrorists,” the man could be heard saying.

The man’s bold protest even gained the attention of a Trump supporter who was selling pro-Trump flags behind him. Before talking to The Western Journal, he yelled at Soria, “You don’t even know what that flag means!”

“Those people are the most oppressed people in the world,” the Trump supporter said after the exchange of words.

He added: “For this guy to stand out here … to fly that flag and the American flag upside down, that’s crazy.”

“President Trump Resign, You Are Unfit.”

One protester found a seat in the area directly behind the podium Wednesday night. Her sign read, “President Trump Resign, You Are Unfit.”

It only took seconds before security took her sign away, however, and she was quietly escorted out of her seat before many others in the venue noticed.

Just here to make a buck off the “spineless liberals.”

One man was selling “F— Trump” buttons for $1 each to any anti-Trumper interested.

But he wasn’t actually a liberal — or a conservative either.

“I’m here to make some money,” the man, who identified himself to The Western Journal as an anarchist, said.
