Not a huge pool of redneck Republican racists around to do this kind of thing.
Gambling is illegal at Bushwood sir, and I never slice.

Well honestly, some have said just that. I think these people are idiots who don't represent any side.

But when the OP starts off the way it did, what kind of conversation do you expect?

I wish Trump would go back to his home country(Russia) and quit punishing us. Take your whole family with you too. Traitor.

The Democrat know they are on the verge of getting voted out of existence as a political party. And some of them apparently feel that violence is preferable to yielding to the will of the people in America.

How much worse will their hate and murderous attacks get, before they are finally defeated?

Sikh Man Attacked, Told To ‘Go Back To Your Country’ In Stanislaus County

August 6, 2018 at 1:59 am

KEYES (CBS13) – A well-known member of the Stanislaus County community was brutally beaten while placing campaign signs, and police are investigating it as a hate crime.

It was Tuesday night in Keyes and 50-year-old Surjit Malhi had just placed his last sign at the corner of Foote and Keyes when he came upon two men waiting for him as returned to his truck. “As soon as I saw them they threw sand in my eyes,” Malhi said.

And that was just the beginning of the attack. The two men proceeded to beat Malhi in the head, shoulders and neck. “And I cleared my eyes and I saw them,” Malhi said.

Blue eyes peeking through black hoodies is what he saw. And as the beating continued his attackers shouted, “Go back to your country!”

The same message, along with hate symbols, were spray painted on his truck. Malhi, the entire time, fearing for his life.
Sounds like Republicans did it. They didn't care or even bother to look at the signs and probably wouldn't know what party his signs were for.

Here's what the victim knows about the attackers:

The thing with Republicans running for offices in CA is that many would hide their political affiliation because the brand is so toxic here that they don't bother. The signs would just say, "Vote for so-and-so."

The right-wing attackers may not be aware that he is a Republican. Or even if the signs do say that, they have missed it. I highly doubt the racists would first check the signs before they attack.

And I highly doubt antifa types would bother looking at the person before going rabid baboon over a trump or republican sign.

Why would antifa goes after an immigrant???????????????????????????????????

That makes no sense. That's like saying a a right-winger going after the KKK or Lindsey Lohan beating up her drug supplier. That imagination is completely illogical.

But I am not familiar with right-wing Alternative Reality, so I digress.
