11:34 pm
hillary clinton and bernie sanders gave less than direct answers. >> his be rhetoric his demagoguery, his trafficking in prejudice and paranoia have nothing to did with our political system. >> my dad was born in poland. i know much about the political experience, nobody has asked me about my birth certificate. maybe it has something to do with the color of my skin. >> and when he is asked about comments like this and actions like this. (bleep) (bleep) (bleep). >> we may see this kind of behavior continue. david schuster, al jazeera. >> joining me in the studio is dante berry, executive director of million hoodies for justice. in atlanta, sean king, the senior justice writer at the new york daily news and in
11:35 pm
milwaukee, arnold miskele, former skin head and author of "my life after hate." sean. >> i think it's a white supremacist message and we see white spre supremacists are lovg donald trump. referencing going back to the good old days of america, when he says that those are dog whistles of wanting to go back to former times and to me is appealing to the ugliest aspects of our country's history. i don't think it's an accident. he's a professional speaker. he speaks all around the world, he chooses his words very wisely and when you call him out on these things he refuses to back down even to -- go ahead man. >> let me ask you this question, can you give me one or two
11:36 pm
examples of what you see as donald trump speaking to white supremacy? >> absolutely. i could give you a laundry list. and i've written about them at great length. i think there are two instances that really stand out to me. first and foremost, again, the constant revenues of going back to the good old days. okay? or prior times in american history. when you push donald trump on that and say exactly what times in american history are you talking about? he won't answer it. but we know that when we go back at prior times in american history it is very ugly particularly when we're dealing with overt racism. but i think even greater than that he really staked his entire campaign on being ugly toward latinos, comparing them to racists and then his campaign cacatapulted when he said he wanted to ban all muslims from
11:37 pm
entering this country. it's overt bigotry. i say it like this. i don't think he is popular in spite of his bigotry, he is popular because of it. he has no policy proposals no brilliant plans out there -- yeah it's ugly. >> thank you mr. king. let's come to our studio and dante berry. do you think -- perhaps he has addressed this to some extent, do you think that trump message be triggers violence or the violence is in his message? >> the fact that he is using rhetoric to isolate muslims and black folks and latinos, that is violent right? and being able to demonstrate the different protesters that their lives don't matter within the space right? but second i don't necessarily think that this moment in particular is so significant, right? if we look back ten years from -- ago when barack obama
11:38 pm
was elected as president, this has been a manifestation to barack obama as president of the united states. so when we've seen every type of situation from the conservative right to push back on policies that barack obama tries to lead whether it's health care reform or something else, it really is kind of mefg i manifesting at ts moment. when barack obama was president and donald trump says where is your birth certificate, there was no conservative on the end condemning had a language or that rhetoric. they are permitting it. >> we do have to say that john mccain, did say -- >> he has been very against donald trump in this case today but for the large majority of those folks right now that are either condemning donald trump right now, where were they ten
11:39 pm
years ago? >> now let's talk to arno merkalis who was some years ago mr. merkalis you would have been one of the people at the donald trump rally when you would have been a full fledged skin head. i want to see what you were thinking some years ago but first let's take a listen at some of their comments. >> i think his willingness to speak out and speak his mind i think that's very important. >> i do like it when i hear somebody that just will tell me exactly what they're feeling and thinking. >> he doesn't care what people think. >> uncorchoreographed. >> he is honest. >> i like his honestness. >> you either accept it or you don't. >> i'm telling you he says what i'm thinking! >> okay mr. mikalis. i'm going to guess that none of trump's supporters will say they're racist but thinking back to a day when you might have
11:40 pm
been one of his supporters can you speak to the attraction? >> i think appeal of trump to many of his supporters is that he cultivates their own sense of victim-hood and that feeling of victim-hood that feeling of being oppressed is essential to the white supremacist narrative. and from what he's talking our country has been taken away from us and the evil muslims are coming to get us. he is very much adding fuel to the fire of fear that is driving people in his direction and while he is doing that he has the bluster and bravado of how puffy he is and how he is going to build a wall and stop muslims from coming in. as sean pointed out, he has absolutely no substance policy-wise. he is saying all kinds of ridiculous things that even the republicans agree are not
11:41 pm
feasible. but for a white supremacist or someone with that kind of leanings that's a very appealing message. >> tell me this. as a point of reality, why do they feel victimized? what is it? what -- okay, so everybody's wages haven't been going up but that's not just white people. that's everybody. why is it that they feel so much more victimized? >> it's interesting that feelings of oppression are really what's behind all this behavior. not only from trump's supporters but from his detractors. and that -- whether or not the oppression is deemed valid, is deemed real, back when i was in the movement i would have said white people are oppressed and there's a jenseends a genocide ,
11:42 pm
it is the feeling of victim hood, a dilution, and a common practice of social progress. when a person in the position of power in centuries now see those that have been marginalized are achieving positions of power, perhaps no better example of that than president barack obama, it's kind of a typical reaction for, especially for less educated people who are kind of a myopia about what happened in this country and throughout the world, for them to feel like they're being oppressed and that their rights are being taken away even though really all that's happening is that people who haven't had rights are finally obtaining rights after a very long time. >> mr. macalas, hold that point. want to go to you sean king, maybe it's a devil's advocate
11:43 pm
question, you decide. >> sure. >> we see anti-trump protesters showing up in his rallies, can we say getting in the face of his supporters -- >> not even that, not necessarily -- >> i think you see what i'm getting to, do the antitrump protesters bear any responsibility for the violence that erupts? >> absolutely not. no. our country is founded on the principle of protest. it is a beautiful thing that we can protest. it is what our soldiers and military and others fight for. it is a fundamental right of an american to be able to do it but donald trump has consistently mischaracterized what these protesters have done. two people in particular, the young lady in kentucky was a very peaceful sweet woman who was not in anyone's face was not violent was not loud and she was shoved and pushed and called every possible ugly name.
11:44 pm
rakakee beings manufacture jones never got in anyone's face in north carolina. john mcgraw came all the way down an aisle to punch him. never in his face. >> he claimed that rakeem was raising a finger, not true. >> people get flipped the bird all the time, not something i do but john mcgraw who punched him assaulted him, donald trump had an opportunity to this morning denounce it but instead suggested he was going to pay this man's legal fees which is only going to continue to cause people to feel empowered and enabled by trump pfn and i hate to say that i'm shocked at it but we've never quite seen anything like this in american political history. >> there is no doubt that donald trump's rise has put the entire republican party in somewhat of a tight spot. mitch mcconnell, shortly after
11:45 pm
trump was endorsed by david duke. of the ku klux klan. >> not something that has been rebuked by the united states senate. >> to hear senate majority mitch mcconnell who said he would do everything possible that the newly elected president barack obama was not going to succeed. maybe barack obama had brown eyes, maybe he was a so-called liberal, who knows what mitch mcconnell's justification was, but we know barack obama is an african american president. he has stepped in the way of almost everything barack obama
11:46 pm
has tried to do. but he has done everything but reject the endorsement of david duke. >> one because of the obama coalition first of all, the comments were made earlier about the decline in power, right? we have an eplernlging majoritieemerging majoritieseved trump down are building in demographic shifts right? so we have the obama coalition building real power in elections real political power. so there's a fight for political power right now. but second i think, to mitch mcconnell, i think that right now, we're also seeing a very split within the republican party. right, and right now the next couple of years we're really going to see what type of parties that emerge out of first the donald trump type of organization or the traditional
11:47 pm
establishment candidates right? but i should not even go even further and say we should also be concerned about ted cruz to an extent as well, because ted cruz and donald trump are very much in the same ideologic category and if we're not carefully we could see -- careful we could see a very dangerous phenomenon going forward. >> it brings to mind another politician about 40 odd years ago named george wallace who seemed to organize his political movement around white rage, would you agree with that? >> i think trump's message is absolutely founded on the disgruntled white guy demographic. and of course, the more things like chicago happen, the more disgruntled white guys are going to be coming out of the woodwork to vote for him. i think what happened in chicago
11:48 pm
pretty much sealed the nomination for donald trump and it was what he was trying oprovoke. he wanted to see violence, he wanted to provoke conflict, and that needs the narrative that white people are under assault and we are the victims here and his freedom of speech is being infringed upon. not -- never mind that that has nothing to did with what the first amendment is about. and i agree with sean and protest is absolutely a fundamental american right. but the issue is, is that when we allow trump to proi advocate uprovoke us andwe respond with r aggression no matter how righteous it may be we are playing into his hands and playing his game and that's something he is going to win at. >> sean king. responding to arnold macellis
11:49 pm
perspective. >> i hope that people continue to peacefully protest. i think the overwhelming protesters have been peaceful. the opposition to them has been ugly. and donald trump has deliberately and specifically encouraged people to retaliate and be carried out on stretches. it's crazy to see it but i'm hopeful that moving forward he will not win the nomination. >> thank you three gentlemen for sharing your perspective on race and racism in campaign 2016. before we go, here are other stories we will be watching in the week ahead. the senate committee, will release its report, on encrypted
11:50 pm

11:56 pm
i don't want to think bit because i keep going back to it in my head. >> the iditarod will continue for another week or two and both teams are committed to seeing their task through. parts of the region near mississippi have received feet of rainfall in the last few days. and finally, recognition and riches for a palestinian teacher who promotes peace, hana haru was awarded prize in dubai, the prize comes with a prize of $1 million u.s. after salma hayak and matthew mcconaughey presented the
