When someone of the leftist persuasion is attacked at a Trump rally, it’s national news. Because Trump-supporters are basically Nazis, according to tolerant, open-minded leftists. How much do you want to bet that a Trump-supporter getting attacked at a #BlackLivesMatter rally in San Diego won’t get national news?
Yes, I know. It’s shockingly not shocking (see Leftist Protesters Get Violent Against Trump Supporters in San Jose, California… and CHARLOTTE: Man in ‘Free Hugs’ Shirt Hugs Cop. ‘Peaceful’ Protesters Berate Him…). Leftists trying to beat someone up for their personal beliefs? Par for the course.
We don’t know the backstory, but it looks like the Trump-supporter just happened to be at the strip mall where the protest was happening. How dare he. It’s one thing if he was actively antagonizing a mob of leftists. No, that still wouldn’t justify the mob’s behavior. Saying words is not a reason to be physically attacked, but emotions are at an all time high, etc. Know thy audience.
But this guy? He was just shopping at the mall wearing a hat…and suddenly feared for his life. I hate to echo Trump here, but perhaps reactions like this mob’s is part of what isn’t currently great about America. Just spit-balling.
And while everyone had their hands out to record what was happening, no one had their hands out to help the guy. That includes all the media shills holding their cameras higher to catch the action. Not great, leftists. Not great. Tell me again about how much compassion and caring you have. I’ll wait.
A better analogy for liberalism, I can’t think of one.
As to what these twits were protesting, an unarmed black man was shot yesterday. Why haven’t we covered it? Good question. Unlike the mob seen in the video above, cooler heads prevailed at LwC. Too many conflicting reports about Alfred Olango yesterday to write commentary about it. However it’s never a good idea to take a firing stance while pointing what turned out to be a 3 inch silver vaping cigarette at cops. Don’t point pointy things at cops. Just don’t.
