The notion that President Trump and conservatives are responsible for division in America is one of the most played-out and laughable left-wing talking points. Democrats, progressives, and other leftists have an unfortunate tendency to accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of.
Republicans and conservatives don’t riot in the streets and burn down buildings. Right-wingers don’t block traffic, bully folks in restaurants, or call for the deaths of law enforcement officers; that’s all leftists and AntiFa.
Rather than take accountability for their own poor behavior, progressives continue to harass politically-dissenting individuals and brand them as the problems which plague this country.
The beauty of progressive tolerance has been put on full display, yet again. On Friday, GOP Sen. Rand Paul went out to eat lunch with friends in California. Unfortunately, he was recognized and subsequently harassed by unhinged left-wingers, per reports from the Washington Examiner.
Leftist folks are the first to laud diversity, but they have no regard or respect for diversity of thought.
A Full Review of What Happened
During Paul’s time in the restaurant, the individuals who identified themselves as “two people from New York” began a verbal tirade about “not putting up with Republican bullsh*t.”
The leftists who harassed Paul and his friends can also be seen flipping off the camera which recorded their antics; one of them even claimed that harassing the senator in a restaurant wasn’t “being rude.”
You truly can’t make this stuff up. See the footage for yourself:
If two conservatives bullied Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or another prominent Democrat in Congress, the media would crucify them. The behavior would be deemed as indicative of all conservatives and Trump supporters, but there’s no denying the double standard here.
Since President Trump’s time in office, left-wingers have repeatedly gone after various Republicans in public places. The left feels justified in doing it too because their leaders refer to folks who support the president as “deplorables.”
The Real Party of Intolerance
If Democrats and progressives truly have issues with intolerance in America, they should look no further than themselves. They should place as much stock into diversity of thought as they do into other forms of diversity.
Being a conservative, a Republican, or a Trump supporter does not make someone inherently evil or deplorable. The true deplorables of America are the ones who believe that differences in political views warrant harassment and attacks.
As previously stated, this is not the first time that prominent conservatives have been shouted down and bullied in public; unfortunately, it probably won’t be the last. The 2020 presidential election is just heating up. It’s very likely that leftists will become even more unhinged as the impeachment inquiry continues to fall apart and as the impending 2020 victory of President Trump becomes more and more undeniable.
