"my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now"

Gay man attacked by Trump fan who warned ‘my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now’

A gay Florida man said he was stalked and attacked by a man who claimed he was inspired by Donald Trump’s election.

Chuck Redding noticed an SUV tailing him after dropping off a friend, but he realized something was wrong when the dark-colored Jeep Cherokee crept closer as he turned onto his street in Sarasota, reported WFTS-TV.

The 75-year-old, who thinks he was targeted because of the pro-LGBT bumpers stickers on his car, parked in front of a neighbor’s house — and that’s when the other driver confronted him.

The man, who he described as a Hispanic man with a beard, started banging on Redding’s car window and then attacked him.

“He yanked the door open, dragged me out, ripped my shirt — I was on the pavement,” Redding said.

Redding suffered cuts, bruises and abrasions in the attack, which the assailant linked to Trump’s election.

“He kept saying, ‘You know, my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now,'” Redding said.

Redding said he’s never been harassed or attacked for being openly gay, but he and some friends have decided to obtain concealed carry permits as protection.

1. I hate to have to say it, but Pink Pistols might have to be part of the solution for survival.

I don't blame Redding that he and some friends have decided to obtain concealed carry permits as protection. Under Trump the US is likely disintegrating. I'm not a gun type person, not NRA or anything like that. ... but I see what this country is likely turning into.

5. 1. If gay citizens are ignored by law enforcement, then self-defense

 

may require this. Really is the bottom line, IMHO.

2. TOO BAD

 

yet gays, as PoC, as asians, as hispanics did vote, in noticable percentages, for the yellow fuhrer with the small hands that he has boasted can grab nether parts of all women who voted for him with impunity because of who he is be on notice he has just started. He has emboldened his brownshirts toward depraved, sadistic behaviors toward all who are not white trump storm troopers. Two weeks over a thousand hate crimes committed by the brownshirts. Everyone that can better melt into the mob, those who can't only the law can be of help, so far. Sessions will change all that. We're going to be wading thru deep doo doo for the next 4 years. Good luck americans, it's not the country for all any longer. You all, we all are going to have to fight for every civil and human right we have gained in the last 50+ years. If Sessions gets confirmed and I feel he just might I won't be exxagerating about our human and civil rights being stripped, guaranteed. Oh well, shit happens.

4. I remember Stonewall well. It is when the perceived

weakest of us, stood up, and started the revolution. I live in the country, surrounded by Trumphumpers. I keep a loaded 30-30, just in case. Ya never know, once told me by a very wise man. I strongly advocate my brethren being armed. Stand Our Ground.

7. I took the CCW class about

8 years ago but never filed the paperwork. I was doing weddings at the time and on weekends I might be carrying a wad of cash around. I stopped doing officiant work when my partner passed unexpectedly and never thought about filing the paperwork until just now.

I live in Caswell County that just gained infamy for one of its nests of klan having a "victory parade". I'm isolated in the middle of the county and getting older alone. Yeah, I keep a 30.06 loaded in case wild hogs decide to come after my collies again but never felt the need to carry until now. I'm taking the CCW class again and this time I'm filing the paperwork.
