Rock Hill, South Carolina (CNN)A Muslim woman wearing a hijab was escorted out of Donald Trump's campaign event on Friday by police after she stood up in silent protest during Trump's speech.
Rose Hamid, a 56-year-old flight attendant sitting in the stands directly behind Trump, stood up Friday during Trump's speech when the Republican front-runner suggested that Syrian refugees fleeing war in Syria were affiliated with ISIS.
Good on her for exercising her right as an American. It took gonads considering the actions others have taken against Trump protesters.

I wonder if comments like the one you are replying to would be same if the circumstances were different. Say a Hillary Clinton rally and she threw out some person who was let's say...brandishing firearms....or protesting Benghazi?
I assume there would be a drastic difference in response.
As they were escorted out, Trump supporters roared -- booing the pair and shouting at them to "get out." One person shouted, "You have a bomb, you have a bomb," according to Hamid.
"The ugliness really came out fast and that's really scary," Hamid told CNN in a phone interview after she was ejected.
Major Steven Thompson of the Rock Hill Police Department told CNN Hamid was kicked out of the event because the campaign told him beforehand that "anybody who made any kind of disturbance" should be escorted out.
Despite her early exit, Hamid did manage to speak with the Trump supporters sitting around her in the stands, several of whom held her hand and said "sorry" as she was forced to leave the venue.
"The people around me who I had an opportunity to talk with were very sweet," she said. "The people I did not make contact with, the people who Trump influenced were really nasty."
Trump is running a circus and he's the ring leader.
