ISIS weighs in on the US Presidential election. ISIS in America.

Tom DiMassimo, the 22-year-old protester who leaped out of the crowd at Saturday’s Donald Trump rally in Dayton, Ohio, was featured in a pro-ISIS video reportedly uploaded to YouTube in May 2015.

The video, captured by LiveLeak before it was reportedly removed from DiMassimo’s site today, features the activist in a U.S. flag-desecration protest on the Wright University campus in Dayton and is dubbed with Arabic chanting. DiMassimo and another man placed U.S. flags on the ground and stood on them….(here)

The pair were joined by approximately two dozen supporters and opposed by a group of veterans who turned out to honor the flag.

Trump: ‘Protester’ Removed by Secret Service from Dayton Rally Stage Had Ties to Islamic State – Breitbart,” By Matthew Boyle, Breitbart, March 12, 2016:


Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner, Tweeted on Saturday evening that the protester removed from a rally in Dayton, Ohio, earlier on Saturday after apparently attempting to grab his leg had ties to the Islamic State group ISIS.

When the protester made his move at Trump, U.S. Secret Service (USSS) agents rushed on stage to retake control of the scene and protect the candidate.

“USSS did an excellent job stopping the maniac running to the stage. He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail!” Trump Tweeted on Saturday evening. The Tweet includes a video apparently indicating the individual’s Islamic ties. No more information is available at this time.

After the agents rushed on stage to protect Trump, and removed the individual, Trump continued his rally unfazed.

“Thank you for the warning. I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree? What a great job!” he said, before continuing his speech.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The democrats will try any dirty trick, employing the lowest subhuman trash to attack Republicans.

    • Don Grantham

      In order to Make America Great Again, they are first going to have to find people that want to act like Americans. This tawdry soap opera is an embarrassment for us all… how dare we mock Europe when groups like BLM are making a mockery of Democracy.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Why a person with a brain cell would vote democrat is an affront to evolution.

        • Pray Hard

          You presume progress in evolution. Evolution has no direction. But, it does seem that it’s about time for leftists to leave the savanna and jump back up into the trees.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            True, I believe evolution is a pendulum more than a linear track, you are right, it is time for democrats to return to the trees, as they are not making any real progress as bipedal creatures.

          • Tatonka

            It would be better if they would go extinct like the dodo bird.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Too bad they are inedible, they would be.

          • Lonnie Robinson

            OUCH :)

          • Mahou Shoujo

            It’s a fact.

          • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            Too late they have already cut down the trees. Self protection instinct?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            They know that one way or another they would be swinging from them, necks or tails, there are always light poles.

          • Bill Kay

            With out a doubt that’s where they belong .

        • Bill Kay

          Eloquently put I also have pondered this question many times .

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The only conclusion I can see, is that they don’t have even one functioning brain cell.

    • sodacrackers2

      I am afraid to think of what they will do in Cleveland at the convention. I hope the National Guard will be ready.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The democrats have fired the first shot, there will be a reply, sooner or later.

        • jerseydave

          One reason that I am hoping that Cruz wins the Nomination. He is the last “Scram rod” that we have left to lower into the runaway reactor that we have here. If things continue as they are, we will not end up in good places as a nation.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Good analogy.

        • sodacrackers2

          Best be sooner.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Hope so, the more the Republicans take, the more the liberals will force them to.

          • sodacrackers2

            And the more rotten the are to us the more they hate us.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            democrat, muslim all they know is hate.

          • Don Grantham

            All the while they accuse the rest of us… well, they are the experts after all. What is the Qur’an but a hate training manual?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            It can be used for sanitary or fire starter, but you are right, its primary purpose is to instructs hate, for the world, and ones self.

          • Don Grantham

            If you have ever spent time over at Breitbart, you might have happened upon this well-spoken gentleman: Matt Bracken. Here is a link to his site: http://www.enemiesforeignanddomestic.com/
            He is a veritable treasure trove of information.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Sometimes I go there, it is well supported and has a lot of good writers. Thanks.

          • Don Grantham

            You’re welcome. Do read some of Matt’s articles.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            ok

    • Elsa

      Ha, I am more inclined to think it was the conspiring republicans – bush, romney, et al

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Don’t think so.

      • jobird

        Of course it is Bush! you are a real smarty aren’t you Elsa?For once
        open your eyes and look for the real answers.This guy was an isis
        wanta be.

        • Lonnie Robinson

          People like this elsa chick are devoid of the truth. All they know how to do is eat ‘fud’ and drink liquids and get the gov’t to take other peoples stuff forcibly so they canhave it. I hope that bastard gets rutted on by some “bull fags” while he’s locked up. That’ll get him to change his fcuked up “perspective”.

      • scocope

        Sorry, they weren’t involved except for trying to blame Trump and his supporters (Republican voters) for causing the protestors to attack them.

      • schmetz

        The problems at Trump rallies neither hurt nor help the Republican establishment. The overwhelming majority of party faithful are PROGRESSIVE. Those at the top could care less if the country became a dictatorship in the next few years. They want power.

    • scocope

      What is upsetting is that the Republican establishment in the form of Cruz, Rubio and Kasich are trying to put the blame on Trump and vast numbers of Republican voters in the form of Trump supporters.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The most imminent danger to Republican defeat, is Republicans themselves, it they don’t learn to work together for victory.

        • scocope

          What gives me hope is this happens every 4 years and then we try patch things up. What makes me worry is that this year is the establishment are denouncing not only a candidate, but his supporters as well.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Like the saying goes “a house divided against itself cannot stand”.

          • Lonnie Robinson

            And thusly we discover who the RINO’s are and that my friend is priceless :)

  • SamFromSales

    The left has no bounds and is starting to show its true closed minded hate.

    • Pray Hard

      What mind?

      • Retiredextremelydangerous

        Exactly!

  • wilypagan
  • Pray Hard

    Well, the left has turned the presidential race into a white (and black) trash soap opera already. Congratulation, leftists, you’re honorary moslems now, turning everything you touch to sh*t.

    • ladywarrior

      Let’s throw Killary in that mix…interesting she didn’t come out and condemn that attacker of Trump’s ….if it had been her you wouldn’t hear the end of it…

      • TexasJester

        Consider: Her personal aide for a decade or more is Huma Abadin. Her mother started the Muslim Sisterhood, and Huma is a member in good standing. She is a muslim.

        • ladywarrior

          I found out about six months ago that John Brennan-head of the CIA…converted to Islam when he was in Desert Storm…Obama’s whole administration is full of them…

          Then I saw a story that John Kerry’s daughter is married to the Iranian Muslim who was the chief negotiator on the nuke deal! I was so shocked….why isn’t that in the news?!

          The DOJ has a ton of them as well….we’re being surrounded….

          Also Valerie Jarrett – Obama’s Iranian handler – has been living in family quarters at the white house….guess Muslims really do have multiple wives……

          • TexasJester

            Yup.

            Scary, ain’t it???

          • christian vidal

            utterly scary!

  • gfmucci

    Leftists, Muslims and Establishment Republicans blame Trump for “inciting” just like Trump blamed Gellar for “inciting.” Maybe Trump and Gellar now share something in common and both can bury the hatchet. http://muccings.blogspot.com/2016/03/bill-ayers-types-in-chicago-and-dayton.html

    • Retiredextremelydangerous

      Maybe that hatchet burying ceremony should be mutual, and aimed at the heads of “move on dot org.” “free speech threating” Liberal Democrat/Republican Funded Scum! That want Trump out!

      • gfmucci

        THAT will never happen.

    • ladywarrior

      I was just thinking the same thing…

    • BeansFerSupper

      Perhaps Trump has come around to Geller’s way of thinking since he now wants stop islamic migration.

    • schmetz

      DREAM ON, LOONY TUNES!!!!!

  • Fred

    Execute all terrorists. Not just ISIS and al queda. Execute the domestic terrorists as well.

  • reyol

    The hitman wannabe is brandishing an Israeli Uzi. I doubt he even knows that. He just wants to be revolutionary cool and will join any cause that promises to give meaning to his empty life.

    • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

      Maybe he secretly does really like the Israelis?
      I know 1 thing though,If he doesn’t get the habit of flagging a trigger we wont have to worry about him or any of his friends. That type of idiot will accidentally clean up Darwin’s few mistakes sooner or later.

  • SRN99

    Somebody tell this loser that Islam is for losers

  • Drew the Infidel

    It tells you all you need to know about the left when socialist Bernie Sanders can go to conservative Liberty University and receive a standing ovation while Trump goes to the University of Chicago and they threaten violence. Bottom line, the left is petrified of Trump.

    • ladywarrior

      Because he’s Vowed to bring our country back and kick out the dangerous trash…
      ….significant to me that Dr. Carson threw his support behind Trump…not the two Cubans…Rafael “Ted” Cruz or Little Marco…not the mailman’s son, Kasich ….the open-borders, amnesty US Chamber of Commerce shills…

      GO, TRUMP! MAKE AMERICA GREAT, SAFE, AND SANE AGAIN!

    • sodacrackers2

      And some on the right. All the more reason to vote for him.

    • Cate

      Yup, the left is petrified and the natives are restless. Their wings are about to be seriously clipped, and their free stuff is about to go away. Heck, they’ll have to get a job and work like everyone else!

  • Po Tato

    Have you ever thought of the possibility that it was Obama adminisgtration who sent that IS-linked terrorist to Trump’s rally in the first place?

    It’s a classical ‘An offer you can’t afford to refuse‘ ploy — sending in some crummy dude and followed by a ‘removal operation’, in order to state the obvious to all, especially Donald Trump — We can send in more crummy dudes in the future if you do not behave yourself, and next time, you may not be as lucky

    • Retiredextremelydangerous

      move on . org., might find that at the next Trump rally’s, they could meet with a lot more resistance from Trump supporters.

    • ladywarrior

      I kinda doubt it would be Hussien at this point…if he would have sent somebody…it would’t have been this wannabe terrorist wank…King Obama will just sit back and watch the GOPe eat their own…it’s now an election for the Republicans to lose…and you gotta give them this….they’re trying their damnest to do it…..

      But WE THE PEOPLE won’t cooperate with them…We are picking our own candidate this election….we’ve had enough of their hand picked “boys”…we’re electing a real man this time….GO, TRUMP!

      • Po Tato

        See, this is the ‘first salvo’, specifically designed to ‘warn’, not kill

        What Obama – or any other prominent figure from the ‘establishment‘ grouping – wants is for Donald Trump to drop out – failing that, at least they hope Trump to do the STFU routine

        That is why they sent in a ‘dud’

        • ladywarrior

          This to me looks like a Clintonesqe thing…Obama is too removed …..or a Valerie Jarrett/Rahm Emanuel thing….

          It would cause riots and sheer hell if they hurt or killed him….this country would never be the same and the Republicans would never recoup….ever….

          • Po Tato

            Remember what happened to JFK?

            Yes, what happened to JFK is still a sharp pain for our country’s psyche, but we did move on, didn’t we?

            Even if they did the same (or worse) to Trump – remember during the JFK time they didn’t have things like ‘suicide bomber‘ – our country will move on

            As to the Republican party – they have enough money to buy plenty of spin doctors to smooth out the kinks, and lives will eventually go on … as usual

  • itchy

    You know when the truth is being told when every government leeching scumbag, socialist scumbag, Radical muzrat scumbag,and left wing knob will do anything to stop someone telling people the ills of a nation and how to fix it. That goes for the point scoring republicans seizing to score brownie points also. Good on you Trump and keep the pressure on the pretenders. burnie sanders….go choke on a pork chop ya como.

    • ladywarrior

      AMEN!

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    DiMassimo?

    What’s some Italian guy doing with Islamofascist ISIS???

    • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

      Mafia doesn’t take nut job’s.

    • Lonnie Robinson

      I was thinking the same thing :)

  • ladywarrior

    So now Bernie Sanders AND ISIS is after Trump…..Interesting…two groups of a large number of groups of those who want to destroy America….Bernie wants to take us down with communism and ISIS with Allah….

    Bernie – who “honeymooned” in the Soviet Union – wants to turn us into a Castro- esque country and the Muslim terrorists who want to turn us into…..well….dead.. unless we worship their murderous, pedophile Allah and pay them a “tax” to stay alive while serving them….

    Wonder who will be next? Korea or Iran? Who want to turn us into a nuclear parking lot? How about Russia…afterall, didn’t Bill and Hillary form a shell company in Canada while she was Secretary of State and had their surrogate broker a deal with Russia to sell them 25% of all uranium mined in the USA…..she hasn’t faced charges on that traitorous act…has she? She used our State Department for a front for donations to the Clinton “Global” Initiative Foundation…notice the word “Global” in their foundation name….

    Even if you are not a Donald Trump supporter…these protesters and the ISIS guy who tried to attack Trump is an attack on all of us…not just the candidate. When you shut down free speech where Americans gather to hear candidates to make their choice of who they want to vote for…you shut down all of our freedom to chose…

    It is of great interest to me and very telling that Rafael Edward Cruz, Marco Antonio Rubio, and John Kasich weren’t out there immediately condemning the protesters and the man who tried to attack Trump…but you can be sure as heck that if it had been them we wouldn’t hear the end of it….they’d be calling for a Federal investigation……

    This isn’t over folks…there is so much power and treasure at stake for those who have been ripping us off for decades and selling us out to our enemies…they will not go quietly into the night….

  • David

    Islam just sucks!

  • BonniePrinceCharlie

    Cruz, Rubio and Kasich – aka the Canadian, Little Marco and the Who? – demonstrated their total lack of integrity by blaming Donald Trump for the violence in Chicago instead of condemning those who sought to silence him. Sanders and Clinton likewise bit I expect nothing better from the Democrats.

    I am all in favour of people objecting to what others have to say and to protest but the kind of intimidation was saw in Chicago is elsewhere is reminiscent of the thuggery associated with the Nazis in the 1930s and we all know where that led.

    Freedom of speech for one side only is not freedom of speech. I may not like what some people say and how they say it but provided they stay within the law, I will defend their right to say it. That’s democracy.

  • Millionmileman
    • jgray1

      they all have ties with each other. it’s a movement with a source and when we determine the source it will be over. the recruits are the illiterate ignorant and unteachable faux “students” who shut down free speech on campuses across this nation. and because it is anti Israel and those being assaulted and threatened are Jewish students the silence has been deafening. now it’s coming to your neighborhood. which is how this works. first the Jews and then you your family your dog your ham sandwich. voice up america.

  • scocope

    I’m so glad that Cruz, Rubio and Kasich showed their true colors by trying to blame Chicago on Trump and vast numbers of Republican voters in the form of Trump supporters.

  • schmetz

    This attack is a symptom of a disease brought to the US by Barack Obama and the Left. They want to eradicate Judeo-Christian ethics and principles and replace it with their own brand of secularism, which they do not mind if it leads to the theocracy of Islamism. Anything that will reduce the country to a third world dictatorship has always been the goal of the Left.
    A Trump Presidency will only help their malicious cause because his personal goals are all about money, xenophobia, racial and religious bigotry (which he does a masterful job of hiding) and power. He absolutely despises the Constitution and no one has really laid into him about that subject. I really see no cure. Even the Republican Party does not want a Constitutionalist in power. They are all rotten cronies. America will get what it deserves.

    • Metis

      Your suspicions of the liberals are unfounded. We’re just as “American” as you are. We, like you, want the best for our children and our country. I’ve read many blanket condemnations of liberals in these threads, but I just want to remind people that we’re your fellow citizens.

      • schmetz

        Modern day Liberalism is an affront to all of us who value freedom and individual rights. Our founders knew that we could not coexist with tyranny. They wanted to make George Washington king, but he realized that for even one second it would violate every moral covenant. If America has lost its moral center than no system of government will save it. No leader will be able to make things right through Constitutional Law and The Bill of Rights. The country will slide into anarchy and the people will scream for a dictatorship. Only those who are willing to lose their God-given Liberties will survive. But without creators and producers of wealth, eventually we will all perish.

        Of course, Liberals, like you, believe that only the government will create wealth. To which I say, Good Luck! Never in the history of mankind has a nation survived by the institution of slavery, even with the best of intentions. If America is to have a future its’ citizens must cling to their bibles, their guns and a free market.

        • Metis

          “Modern day Liberalism is an affront to all of us who value freedom and individual rights.” I have been a Liberal for over 60 years now. Never in all that time have I felt my freedom and individual rights were being curtailed by any Liberal platform, philosophy, or legislation. So I don’t know what you’re talking about. As for the accusation that Obama acts like a tyrant, I think that’s based on his executive orders. The fact is he has issued less executive orders than any president since Bush 1. America has lost its moral center? You might be referring to religion which shouldn’t ever be part of our political life. What moral center? The one which the Founders established, when they agreed that “All men are created equal” despite the fact that most of them were slavers? I am against bible clinging and gun-clinging as I think they constitute the worst aspects of this country.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Muslums have been systematically denying the basic civil rights of Christians in Dearbornistan, Michigan and you complain about the bible? 3000 people were killed by muslums on 9-11 and you complain about the bible?
            If you don’t like Christianity you can always move to any islamic state — where there are fewer and fewer Christians every month of every year.

          • Metis

            I’ll complain about any group that imposes its fanaticism on others. I mentioned the bible because the person I was answering did. But that can and should apply to any group, religious or otherwise. Actually I’m an atheist and I don’t believe in any superstitious mythologies but I’m particularly and especially opposed to those which denigrate women.

          • schmetz

            I am so very sorry. I should have realized that your mind is closed tight to Conservative-Libertarianism. It is strange, however, that you would invade a Conservative site with your ideas. Having said that, find those who agree with you. Those individuals who believe that PROGRESSIVISM is the right path for any country. Raise taxes, increase regulations, restrict private property, socialize schools and most certainly never ever ever return an illegal (Oh so sorry, displaced person) to his native country. Oh and want one more little tidbit? I am a proud Canadian who at one time believed that America could lead the World to freedom. I now know better. There, you won the argument. Now, laissez-moi faire! Please, peddle your crap someplace else.

          • Metis

            Invade???? Don’t be silly. We all comment on all sites that interest us here. They’re not private clubs. I enjoy debating with people who don’t become abusive and I don’t usually enjoy being in an echo chamber where everybody agrees and the same points are continually reiterated. Occasionally I even learn something from disagreements and I concede when the points are made effectively. You’ve already started to become abusive so I don’t have much hope that I’ll learn anything from you.

    Trump must back up his statements regarding Islam.For example. Islam is anti democracy (“He maketh none to share in His government.” Democracy is heresy. Allah shares his government with no one. 18:26) Islam is anti Christian and Jewish and an oppressive religion and extortionist (Fight against Christians and Jews “until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.” 9:29) Islam is a terrorist religion (We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Their habitation is the Fire 3:151) Islam must destroy non molsem cultures (Allah will destroy non-muslim cultures. 7:138-9) Islam hates women (Women are like Devils (Muslim 8:3240) and (Women are stupid (Bukhari 3:48:826 and Bukhari 1:6:301, Al-Tabari, Vol. 1, p. 280, Bukhari 2:24:541)

    This story about being ISIS member/supporter is false.

    Someone took the original video of him in a BLM march and added Jihadist music
    and a photoshop of him with the gun and flag.

    This is the original video.

    This guy is must be ISIS! Website proves WTF! Liberal media protecting him with denials. Check it out: Massimo name is Arab/Muslim — I think.
    Trump looked like chicken, esp with crazy red cock’s-comb on head too. Should stick to firing people behind big desk. Maybe Trump runs out of gas for the big game — US election. With dis he already jump shark? will he have chance to say “you’re fired” to Obama and Hillary or just pretend on TV Show? he talk big no plan. where his advisors to help? he keep saying he’s going to get team of “great” genius advisors. he no look like the genius. advisors must be chimps. egg. he keep talking great health plan but deliver 2nd rate, warmed over policy paper from 1970’s 2 weeks ago. plan won’t help anyone. “save money – if sick: pay up or die”. How he rip up NAFTA ? Egg. Congress & NAFTA not allow trade sanctions at Mexico to extort Great Trump Wall payment. Trump then blame Congress for everything. then do nothing for 4 years but paint whitehouse gold. maybe Trump make deal with China for “beautiful wall” instead. China much experience with Great Walls. Trump make good deals he says. US allow China imports in x-change to building the “beautiful wall” for Trump? make it gold too. bewtiful wall. Trump like.
