In an ugly display that was recently captured on video, a Hispanic teen and his father, both Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump supporters, were berated while passing anti-Trump protesters. When the 16 year old young man was pursued by one of the protesters, because he happened to be wearing a Make America Great Again baseball cap, his father stepped up in defense of his son and proceeded to get into a heated argument with the boisterous protester.
“Don’t step up to my son,” the father shouted at the anti-Trump protester, and the protester responded with, “Don’t step to me!”
The understandably upset father had some choice words for the anti-Trump protesters also. As the man and his son began walking away from the heated confrontation, he shouted angrily back at the protester, “Go back to Mexico, fool. You like it so bad? Go back. Why are you here?”
Most of the heated back and forth situation was captured on film, by Rebel Pundit, and reportedly started when one of the anti-Trump protesters started yelling, “F**k Trump!” at the Hispanic 16 year old after noticing that he wore a baseball cap in a show of support for the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The father spoke with Rebel Pundit after the encounter.
‘You can protest and do it orderly, but don’t be disrespectful. They can have their voice but the fact is that doesn’t give you the right to be violent or disrespectful.’
Unfortunately, when it comes to politics, things tend turn ugly quickly when there are opposing views. It shouldn’t be this way, nor does it have to. I encourage everyone reading this to remember that you get more bees with honey, as the saying goes, and being rude or disrespectful won’t ever turn another person to your way of thinking. Whether Republican or Democrat, there is no reason why you can’t simply ignore those with opposing views in lieu of making threatening comments and in effect making those who share your beliefs look bad.
