In every election, tensions are high. Americans are practically pitted against each other as they rally behind the candidate of their choice. Long gone are the days of civil discourse, when important issues are discussed in a fair and open forum.
The media, campaigns, and the general hysteria online have caused everyday citizens to panic. With each new election we are told the world will end unless candidate A or candidate B is elected. News outlets go out of their way to whip us up into frenzy, so it’s not a surprise that people are lashing out inappropriately.
There have been reports across the country of left-wing aggitators mistreating Trump supporters. While the media has worked overtime to paint conservatives as angry, violence-inducing, bigots, the exact opposite is true.
Trump supporters have been suffering unacceptable abuse from angry, hateful liberals. But the media is silent.
On Oct. 15 in Bangor, Maine, vandals spray-painted about 20 parked cars outside a Trump rally. Trump supporter Paul Foster, whose van was hit with white paint, told reporters, “Why can’t they do a peaceful protest instead of painting cars, all of this, to make their statement?”
Around Oct. 3, a couple of Trump supporters were assaulted in Zeitgeist, a San Francisco bar, after they were allegedly refused service for expressing support for Trump, GotNews reports. “The two Trump supporters were attacked, punched, and chased into the street by ‘some thugs’ that a barmaid called out from the back.”…
On Sept. 28 in El Cajon, California, an angry mob at a Black Lives Matter protest beat 21-year-old Trump supporter Feras Jabro for wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap. The assault was broadcast live using the smartphone app Periscope.
This is just a taste. Earlier this week we learned that Donald Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame was destroyed by a sledgehammer-wielding activist. The man openly encouraged the police to arrest him for his crime.
The GOP offices in North Carolina were fire bombed, with hate-speech spray painted on the side.
And of course we’ve all seen the Project Veritas video that showed DNC operatives hiring people to incite violence at Trump rallies.
Clearly there is one side in this election that is willing to break laws, cause bodily harm, and “go low” to get their way.
And it isn’t the Trump train.
