Supporters of Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke were seen showing their contempt for President Donald Trump at an El Paso counter-Trump rally in an unconventional way.
Beto supporters took it upon themselves to create and destroy a life-sized piñata of the President with baseball bats. It’s unclear how many of the effigies were made, but a video revealed one being thoroughly struck and likely destroyed by a rally-goer.
O’Rourke, formerly a member of Congress representing El Paso, was holding a rally to distract from President Trump’s ‘Finish the Wall’ event down the road. He was considerably outdrawn in his own home city, with photos of his event revealing the presence of merely hundreds of supporters. Meanwhile, the President’s rally drew almost 10,000 people in the reliably Democratic Texas city.
Watch the disturbing scene at O’Rourke’s sparsely attended rally:
The individuals seen striking the Trump pinata seem to be masked, and the second seen on tape may very well be a minor. If so, he’s likely to have been instructed to attack the effigy of the President by his parents or guardians- demonstrating questionable parenting on their behalf.
It’s common for people to strike or burn effigies of political figures in other countries, but traditionally such a display would be seen as undemocratic or hateful in the United States. The Trump pinata was also created holding a Russian flag, potentially leaving O’Rourke’s mob open to accusations of anti-Slavic sentiment.
As the craftily made piñata was struck with a baseball bat, onlookers could be heard droning on about ‘hatred’ and ‘racism,’ apparently unaware of the irony in accusing others of hatred while attacking effigies of political figures in a crazed frenzy.
These Beto supporters may find like-minded company with radical Islamists in Iran, who have been seen destroying or burning effigies of President Trump with an Israeli flag shirt in similar protests.
Perhaps the former Texas Congressman can take guidance from the anti-American Islamists in Iran for planning his potential Presidential campaign events.
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
