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.

Face it, antifa would go after ANYONE holding a trump sign. I'd doubt a republican sign would trigger them any less.

Uh huh.

And again - who did this?

A popular post on Facebook shared the image of the pickup, which was spray painted in large black letters with the words “Go back to ur country” alongside a Celtic cross. The image is a well-known white supremacist symbol, according to the Anti-Defamation League which tracks anti-Semitic and other hate crimes across the country.
Obviously these disgusting pieces of garbage don't represent any "side" - but it's likely time to come to grips with the details of this case.

If you want to talk about "antifa", there are plenty of threads for that.

There were NO Trump sign, the signs are for a local GOP politician that probably doesn't even identify that person as a Republican.

I know of a staunch conservative, die hard Trump fan, who happens to be Chinese. She was with her family out and about when a couple of white Trump supporters harassed them and told them to go back to their country and how Trump is going to destroy China with tariff. She was shaken up but blames the Democrats that runs the city. I call it an Own Goal.

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.
That was no Democrat doing the beating...

If you are trying to imply innocence because the perpetrators cant read and can't figure out which candidate is which... then I guess I'll have to just admit it... I wouldn't be a damn bit surprised.

Let me ask you this: if you are driving down a highway, presumably paying attention to your driving and you saw someone placing signs along the road, would you notice the signs or the person placing them in detail?

(note: I don't expect you to be honest here, but the answer is fairly obvious anyway)

It really doesn't matter what beb0p would notice - it matters what the pieces of garbage noticed when they attacked the victim.

And honestly - it could have been anything that triggered them. I don't know why you believe it was the sign over how they looked. It really depends on the person to what they notice.

And if they are going around tagging cars of victims with White Supremacy logos, I have hard time believing it was the sign that triggered them considering the way the victim looked.

Let's not mince words - people mistake Sikh's for Muslims all of the time - I have a few Sikh friends that have gotten their fair share of annoying comments thrown at them in their life simply for looking like a Muslim - as if being Muslim is even something one should worry about? It's sad but true.


I think we can all agree that these people are garbage and deserve whatever comes to them. They don't represent people I know in the Central Valley at all, even if most of those people that I know are very conservative.



I really don't know why this is the hill you're deciding to die on.

It's really nothing out of the ordinary for about 90% of the people who post here, is it? Everyone digs their heels in, whether they are right or wrong.

Besides, sailing under a false flag is probably about as likely for antifa people as it is for nazis. They are one and the same other than who they direct their hatred towards.
