It’s been said many times, but it always bears repeating. There is nothing the left despises more than minorities who have the indecency to be conservative. They view this as the worst form of betrayal – the slave who eats in the house with the family. They simply won’t tolerate it, and therefore it should be seen as a particular form of bravery when any minority publicly embraces conservative politicians and values.
Because, as Betty Rivas discovered this week, liberals will make you pay a price for your disobedience. Rivas and her husband Jorge own Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Catalina, Arizona, and they have been besieged with hateful calls and threats since daring to announce their support for Donald Trump. Rivas appeared at a Tucson rally with the Republican frontrunner last weekend, invited to the stage by Trump when he saw her “Latinas Support Trump” sign in the audience.
Rivas, who was naturally excited about getting an unusual moment in the spotlight, posted photos of the rally online. She assumes now that a few of her Facebook friends must have shared the post around with people who are less than tolerant about political disagreement. According to KGU9 in Tucson, the phone in Sammy’s Mexican Grill has been ringing off the hook. “The phone rang several dozen times,” said the article, “many calling Betty Rivas and her family racists, vulgar names and threatening their business.”
The station asked Rivas if all the unwanted attention had caused her to regret going to the rally. “I haven’t done anything wrong,” she said. “I have the right to say what I’m thinking – I can go listen to Hillary, I can go listen to Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders because I’m within my right – I didn’t do anything wrong.”
This has become the left’s newest M.O. We’ve watched these freaks try to destroy small businesses for daring to speak out against gay marriage, and now they are apparently repeating the process for Trump supporters. These people cannot stand disagreement. Even on issues where they have already won, it’s not good enough. They aren’t satisfied until every last American walking the earth agrees with their bleeding-heart agenda.
And of course, there is no room at all for disagreement among minorities. If you’re black, you have to vote Democrat. If you’re Hispanic, same. If you’re a woman, yep. Barren of any real ideas, the “progressives” must demand categorical allegiance. When you threaten that solidarity, they panic and their true colors come out.
