Life can be dangerous nowadays if you have the “wrong” political views.
A young man was stopped at a red light in Hyannis, Massachusetts, June 30 when he heard the driver behind him honking her horn, according to the Cape Cod Times.
He continued driving and the woman followed him, still beeping her horn. At the next light, she started yelling at him.
“I could hear her screaming out of the car or something, so I thought man maybe something’s wrong with my car,” the man, who asked not to be identified, told WBZ-TV in Boston. “I get out, all of a sudden I hear, ‘You’re racist,’ and a bunch of cuss words.”
It turns out the woman was angry about the sticker on the back of his SUV supporting President Donald Trump.
“The first thing she said when I came out of the car was, ‘Did you vote for Trump?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, what of it?’ And that was pretty much what triggered this. It was like nonstop,” he said.
The man told police the woman drove around his SUV, prompting him to lean back into the open driver’s-side door. She then drove toward him and hit the door, according to the police report.
“She bent my door and I had to lean back to avoid getting hit,” the man told police. “She also hit the side of my car.”
The man recorded the incident on his phone, according to police, and the video shows the woman drive her gray Honda Civic around his SUV and hit the open door before driving away.
“Her tire was right next to my foot,” the man told WBZ. “That could have ended really bad.”
The Civic’s license plate is visible in the video, and police traced the car to 25-year-old Chloe Wright of Taunton, Massachusetts.
The man identified a license photo of Wright as the woman who had hit his car, according to police.
It took police a month to find her. She was stopped by a state trooper Monday in Bourne after a random check of her license plate revealed an open warrant for her arrest.
Wright was taken into custody and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, vandalizing property and leaving the scene of property damage, according to the Times. She appeared in court Monday and pleaded not guilty.
While this man wasn’t seriously injured, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before the anger driven by hateful rhetoric from anti-Trump liberals will lead to someone being hospitalized or killed just for supporting the president. Since the left’s cries of “racist,” “facist” and “Nazi” don’t appear to be slowing down, Trump supporters should remain vigilant — even when they’re just driving through town.
