Donald Trump's nightly rallies increasingly are turning violent, racist, and now, include Nazi rhetoric.
At Donald Trump's rally in Las Vegas Monday night, supporters attacked several Black Lives Matter protestors.
Buzzfeed's McKay Coppins recorded and posted this video of security personnel dragging a protestor out, during which one Trump supporter can be heard saying, "Light that motherf*cker on fire!"

Coppins also offered these observations:
I'm new to Trump rallies so maybe this is normal (?) but this is unlike any political event I've ever seen.— McKay Coppins (@mckaycoppins) December 15, 2015
Every time another activist gets dragged out of room, Trump berates reporters for taking pics. "They are terrible! The worst!" Crowd boos.— McKay Coppins (@mckaycoppins) December 15, 2015
Also on scene Monday night, L.A. Times reporter Kurtis Lee:

And MSNBC's Benji Sarlin posted these tweets from Trump's rally:
Things shouted as Black Lives Matter protestor dragged away at Trump rally: "Kick his ass!" "Shoot him!" "Bitch!" "Sieg Heil!"— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) December 15, 2015
Another protestor dragged out. Man in suit screaming: "He's a Muslim guy! He's a Muslim guy!"— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) December 15, 2015
In his report at NBC News, which includes the video up top, Sarlin writes:
As one man was dragged away, Trump supporters variously yelled, "Shoot him!" "Kick his ass," and "Light the motherf----r on fire!"
A large middle aged man shouted, "Sieg heil!" — a Nazi Germany-era salute — as the protester was taken away.
Meanwhile, this is far from the first time violence and ugly rhetoric have taken place at Trump rallies.
"The violence has become commonplace," Raw Story reports.
"Earlier this week, video emerged of security guards at a Trump rally in Pennsylvania throwing activist Jamila Hammami onto the ground. Last month, an African-American man was beaten at a Birmingham, Alabama rally. In October, a Latino demonstrator was knocked to the ground and dragged by a Trump supporter in Florida."
