The head of a pro-Trump super pac defended the actions of Trump supporters who roughed up a "Black Lives Matter" protester at a Donald Trump speech in Birmingham, Alabama, Saturday, suggeting the black man should have known it was the wrong place to be.
Birmingham -- which became infamous in during the civil rights movement for church bombings and brutality against black protesters -- is "no place for 'Black Lives Matter' to try to bring their issues to the forefront," Robert Kriger said in a CNN interview Monday.
VIdeo of the incident showed the man being attacked by white Trump supporters after he yelled "black lives matter" during a Trump speech to 10,000 Alabama supporters.
Kroger compared it to what would happen if he interrupted a black church service by yelling "white lives matter."
"I know I'd get beat up," he said. "I'm sure if I started disrupting their sermon and was obnoxious as this guy apparently was, yeah, I would probably be afraid I might get at least thrown out and roughed up."
"From my perspective, I'm sick and tired of the Black Lives Matter," Kriger said. "I think it's a farce."
Asked by CNN host Carol Costello is the Birmingham crowd was right to turn on the man, Kriger said "Enough is enough," he said, citing other instances of where the Black Lives Matters group has interrupted Trump rallies.
