Palo Alto ‘Human Rights Commissioner’ Deletes Twitter Account After Post Defending Crazed Leftist in Starbucks Incident

As the radical left becomes militant, one man faced backlash that he couldn’t handle.

The “Human Rights Commissioner” in Palo Alto, California has deleted his Twitter account after fierce backlash from a post in which he defended a woman who berated a man in a Starbucks for wearing a MAGA hat.

In an official statement about the incident, Steven D. Lee said:

The most impactful step we can take to ensure an inclusive America is to resist the policies and actions of the current administration that are exclusionary, dangerous, and contrary to our country’s founding values. This is resistance that, after three years, requires endurance. It is resistance that calls for us to speak up even when our voice is raw from years of calling out. But most importantly, it is a resistance that demands empathy – the same empathy missing from the policies and actions we resist.

He then went on to quote former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous “when they go low, we go high,” comment, which conservatives know is never the case.

Lee continued:

This week in Palo Alto, one of our neighbors, beloved by many in our community for her progressive activism, myself included, allowed herself to be pulled down into that muck when she encountered a man wearing a MAGA hat at a Palo Alto Starbucks and chased him out of the store.

Let me be clear. The MAGA hat at its best represents a distorted and inaccurate view of America, its history, and it [sic] place in the world, and, at its worst, is a symbol of hate and everything that is wrong with America today.

He finished with some references to the peaceful resistance of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. The statement was not exactly a repudiation of the woman – Rebecca Mankey’s – actions. For this, Lee was excoriated online, leading to the deletion of his Twitter account. He does not appear to have an active Facebook account anymore, either.

Mankey yelled at the man – identified as Victor – during the incident, repeatedly telling him that “it is not okay to hate brown people,” and attempted to whip up a mob against him. Eventually, she chased him out of the store.

“This woman comes over, and she says ‘Is that a Trump hat?’ I said, ‘I think it is, yes,'” Victor said. He said Mankey then turned to the rest of the Starbucks customers and said, “Hey, everybody. Come over here. Let’s get this guy! He’s a hater! I’m calling him out! He hates brown people. He’s a Nazi.”

After running her mouth online, Mankey was fired from her job at a music store.

“Anybody in Palo Alto know this freak? He was sitting in Starbucks. I think he lives in Palo Alto. He will never forget me and will think seriously about wearing that hat in my town ever again,” she said on Facebook. “If you see him in this hat please confront him. You do not want to be the person who didn’t speak up as we slipped into fascism.”

Bill de Blasio Booed off Stage at George Floyd Memorial Event

Even New Yorkers are sick of the left-wing mayor.

Published

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly booed off stage during an appearance at a George Floyd memorial event on Thursday, with a raucous crowd drowning out the mayor’s remarks with boos and a torrent of profanity.

A Brooklyn pastor tried to encourage the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, but he was roundly booed anyway.

De Blasio continued with his remarks, even though it was clear the crowd at the memorial didn’t want to hear from him. At points he couldn’t even be heard because the booing was so loud.

De Blasio’s as left-wing as they come, but he’s become increasingly unpopular in New York City for his handling of the Floyd race riots, which have surfaced in force in the already coronavirus-stricken city. Some New Yorkers are incensed with the curfew instituted to deter looting, and others are angry with the city’s total inability to deter the looting anyway. Governor Andrew Cuomo has already threatened to override de Blasio’s authority in order to put an end to the mass-scale rioting and looting in the city.

More than 700 rioters were arrested on Monday night alone, and more than 60 NYPD officers had to be hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the riots. The police department has increasingly given up on the prospect of restoring law and order in New York City, frustrated by de Blasio’s continual refusal to allow law enforcement to actually stop the widespread riots.
