Much of the left appears to operate under the assumption that they are entitled to behave however they wish and be immune from consequences. They posit that they have a right to disrupt political events and then are shocked to discover that some people don’t appreciate their political bullying. One young lady learned that her sense of warped social justice is not enough to shield her from pepper spray.
This is the Donald Trump supporter wanted by police after he was captured on video pepper-spraying a 15-year-old girl in the face at a rally in Wisconsin.
The bearded man was captured on film, since uploaded to YouTube, walking through the crowds in Janesville on Tuesday wearing one of Trump’s trademark Make America Great Again caps.
When the teenage girl – known only as Alex – shoved another Trump supporter, the bearded man was filmed raising his arm and spraying a yellow substance just inches away from her face.
The girl claims she shoved the other man because he touched her sexually – a claim the man she shoved denies.
Janesville police have released the YouTube footage with screengrabs of the bearded man’s face, appealing to the public to identify him.
In a statement, the Janesville police department said: ‘A 15-year-old girl from Janesville was pepper sprayed in the crowd by a non-law enforcement person.
‘A male in the crowd groped the 15-year-old girl, when she pushed him away another person in the crowd sprayed her.
‘We are currently looking for two suspects, one for the sexual assault and one for the pepper spray.’
A video shows the young girl – who has short blonde hair and glasses – shouting something at a man who is out of shot, after which she appears to reach out and try to push him.
But within seconds a hand is seen reaching into frame and she is pepper sprayed. The girl’s face gets covered in the orange spray and she staggers away, wiping her face as she goes.
The fifteen-year-old was there to protest Trump and began arguing with a man who supported the Republican candidate.
Janesville Police Chief David Moore told Wisconsin State Journal the girl was sprayed by a man standing with 19-year-old woman from Madison, who also was struck by the spray.
Both received medical attention at local hospitals, say police.
The girl claimed that the man who she appears to take a swing at had groped her.
In a video filmed after the incident, one of the men police want to speak to said the teenage girl had been shouting ‘black lives matter’, while a lot of people around her were shouting ‘white lives matter’, and she apparently got upset
He said: ‘She challenged me, saying ‘why are you at a Trump rally if you are a grown man’ and I replied that that was exactly why I was at a Trump rally – because I am a grown man and I want to make this country great again.’
He added that the supporters had been ‘warned not to make contact with protesters’.
About 1,000 people were allowed inside the conference center to listen to Trump speak while another 1,000 remained outside, said the Journal.
The suspect – who police have yet to identify – then claimed that the girl starting ‘screaming in his face’ and as the crowd around her got more heated, she swung a punch at him, he says.
‘Shortly after that a man standing behind me got her with pepper spray’, he said.
The Republican candidate – who has been accused of inciting violence at his rallies – was in the swing state for a town hall event Tuesday evening, ahead of Wisconsin primary voters taking to the polls next week.
Outside the rally, protesters lined the streets waving banners with slogans including ‘No hate in our state’, ‘All men are created equal. Don’t drink the hateraide Trump’ and ‘Dump Trump’.
While supporters wore Trump’s trademark red cap and hoisted signs with the slogan ‘Make America Great Again’.
Meanwhile one woman wearing a burka held a sign that read ‘Why do you hate me?’, which seemed to point towards one of Trump’s policies to ban Muslims from entering America.
No, what this man did is not right. At best, it was an overreaction to this young woman starting a fight. At worst, it was an assault that is highly understandable, but not something to be condoned.
These special snowflakes on the left have been coddled and told that their feelings are the most important things in the world. Then, when they are confronted with the realities of the world, that there are some people who don’t give a damn how they feel, they are shocked to discover that their sense of social justice has not shielded them from the very-predictable consequences that have arisen.
If I go up to a Hell’s Angel and insult him, he is likely to beat me up. That does not make his reaction justifiable, mind you. But when filing the police report, I should expect the officer to say, “Well, what the hell did you think was going to happen?”
Similarly, when you descend upon a political rally with the expressed purpose of disrupting it to the extent that it would be canceled, you shouldn’t be surprised when someone reacts harshly….
…Especially if you engage physically with an attendee first, which this young lady seems to have done.
