In South Padre, Texas a racist Trump fan got his just desserts after he menaced and harassed a Muslim family who was peacefully trying to enjoy their beach vacation.
According to the New York Post, the incident took place on May 3 and started when the “allegedly” drunk racist started hurling insults at two Muslim women.
“We were staying at the South Padre Pearl hotel and went to the beach through their private access,” a description of the 5-minute video reads. “My father was approached by two [women] who were also enjoying their time. The women asked him to help with talking to a stranger who was harassing them. All my father said to the guy was, ‘Please enjoy your time and have fun and let everyone else here enjoy their time.’ The guy seemed to listen and walked away. He then came back to my father and started throwing racist comments.”
The man became more aggressive after the women asked a male relative to intervene. He reportedly started grabbing his crotch and hurling racist slurs at the family, all while proclaiming his love for Donald Trump.
“Guess what? You will never, ever, ever stop my Christianity from rising above your Sharia law,” Downing said. “Your Sharia law don’t mean s–t to me! Guess what? Guess what? ISIS don’t mean s–t to me, motherf–kers!”
The racist Trump fan then began to threaten the family, stating that Trump was going to harm them somehow.
“Donald Trump! Donald Trump got you, motherf–ker,” Downing said. “Watch … watch!”
Police were called to the scene, where they arrested 35-year-old Alexander Dowing of Waterford, Connecticut. Downing was charged with public intoxication. And it was at the South Padre police station where the racist trump fan took this now-world-famous mugshot.
A relative of the Muslim family told Buzzfeed News that Downing is also facing charges of indecent behaviour for grabbing his crotch and telling the family to “suck my d*ck” in the presence of young children.
“I want people to understand that this man needs to be charged with indecent behavior in front of kids and a minor,” the relative, who only wanted to use his first name, Ahmed, told BuzzFeed News. He also blasted hotel staffers, who allowed the man back after his arrest.
“We will definitely go back to the beautiful island but will never go back to the Pearl Hotel,” he said.
Buzzfeed News reports that the hotel manager told them the incident happened on a public beach and no hotel employees became aware of what happened until after the video was posted online.
Seeing a racist Trump nut in tears just brings a special kind of savage joy to my heart. Let’s keep em’ coming.
