A Muslim family that had gone on a beach in South Padre Island, Texas was harassed and racial abuses were hurled at the family members that included several small children, women and men. The man who was fighting someone else was earlier advised by the family to enjoy the time at the beach and let others too have a good time.
The man, recognized by police as Alexander Downing, of Waterford goes away first after the advise to return a few minutes later and hurl abuses at the family. An apparent supporter of the President Donald Trump, the 37-year old man said that Trump will throw out the Muslims and will stop entry of the Muslims in the US.
The incident would have gone without a trace had the entire sequence not saved by a teenaged girl who was with the extended family. Ever since the video was put on Youtube, it has gone viral attracting attention from people not just in the US but around the world.
The video clearly shows the man, who looks highly intoxicated as saying, “Donald Trump will stop you” and “Donald Trump is my f***ing president.” The man first hurled abuses and then went back, using even the worse language. The video was apparently saved when the man returned second time with even more choicest words. The teen who posted the video said, “All my father said to the guy was ‘please enjoy your time and have fun and let everyone else here enjoy their time,'” Noria Alward said in her post. “The guy seemed to listen and walked away. He then came back to my father and started throwing racist comments,” she said.
Reports suggest that the harassed and harried family called police, but by the time officers arrived, Downing left the beach. But when he saw that the police was gone, he came back agai. “We went back to playing in the water and sand then the insane man came back with even more aggressiveness and more racial slurs,” Alward said.
