    Proof that Trump supporters are idiots

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wearing-united-states-man-berates-woman-wearing-puerto/story?id=56482041

    This man confronts a U.S. citizen for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt, accusing her of being unpatriotic because of her attire. This is the kind of reactionary rhetoric that needs to be eradicated from our society. People have no right to harass others based on what they wear.

    Isn't that funny -- I've always thought that someone that doesn't recognize the right of free speech or that immediately jumps to party affiliation without all of the facts isn't necessarily the sharpest tool in the shed. Anyways, I don't know what "reactionary rhetoric" means. People have a right to say whatever they want to say whenever they want to say it. is it polite? No. Is it civilized? No. Is it always prudent or safe? No. Is it legal? Yes. His trouble started when he accosted the person. Moreover, where does it says this guy is a Trump Supporter?

    lol and you are the first one and the loudest one to complain about being insulted by right wing meanies.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    The guy was a jerk. But that's no reason to eradicate any speech. Is Progressive Ideology Incompatible With The First Amendment? Apparently.

    What the story shows is public drunkenness is foolish and leads to poor outcomes. It also shows that you know how to jump to conclusions.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
