Pro-Trump rally in Cardiff [Image: Adrian E].

Vox Political stands corrected with regard to the so-called ‘pro-Trump rally’, of which the picture above has been circulating on the social media.

It seems those of us who were led to believe it was a genuine rally in support of Donald Trump were hoodwinked; it was staged by two Muslims who most certainly do not support Mr Trump’s views.

They said they wanted to see of people opposing Trump would stand up for what they said they believed in.

But their comments indicate that they were subjected to physical and verbal abuse.

Is it really impressive that people were willing to lower themselves to bullying tactics to express their opposition?

If This Writer had been present, I would most likely have asked these two men if they were having a laugh. If they had denied it (which would have been a lie), what’s wrong with talking to them about it?

Sometimes you have to fight violence with violence but, when your opponents are just a couple of men holding signs, let us not forget the alternatives. Is that reasonable?

As hundreds of people marched on Queen Street in Cardiff, a short distance away two men held placards supporting Trump and calling for Muslims to be banned from the UK.

The two men were flanked by police officers and were confronted by anti-Trump protesters, some of whom tried to rip the signs from their hands and chanted “off our streets Nazi scum”.

But the men holding the placards – which read “Ban Muslims from UK” and “Let’s follow Trump” – are two Muslims from Cardiff.

Aiman Saif and Sanaan Akhter said they were carrying out a “social experiment” and do not share any of Trump’s views.

Law student, Aiman, 22, said: “We wanted to know if people would go to the extent of supporting their opinions with actions.

“Most people approached us and that shows people were enthusiastic about what they believe in.”

Aiman – who is Yemeni (one of the countries banned by Trump) – said some tried to rip the placards from their hands.

Someone shouted: “I’m telling you what a sick individual you are.”

And a group of friends started chanting “off our streets Nazi scum”.

Aiman said he was impressed with people’s reactions which proved people were willing to stand up for their beliefs.
