“I got up this morning to go to work and the car was parked a couple of doors down,” Amber Timmons told Denver 7. “I came out and was surprised to see it all covered in graffiti and hate messages.”

Timmons’ car was covered in black paint with words like “tranny” and “Trump” drawn alongside Nazi symbols. She had previously written “love trumps hate” and “not my president” in erasable marker on her windows.

“It’s hard to describe,” she said. “The first thought is shock. You just can’t believe it. You hear about it happening with others, but you never think it’s going to happen to you … It’s a personal attack against me as a person.”

While Timmons struggled coming to terms with the vandalism, messages of support poured in. In Facebook posts, she shared images of her friends helping her clean the paint off her vehicle.

“We are successfully ERASING THE HATE!!!” Timmons wrote. “We are not going down… You fight hate with love… so whoever did this… I LOVE YOU!! And love to everyone out there who came to my support and love. Thank you so very much!!!”

Timmons said she came out of her apartment to find a different kind of message on her car: Post-It notes reminding her “you are loved!”

”I am deeply sorry this happened to your car,” one of the Post-It note read. “Do not worry though, this is just the racist/homophobes getting scared of America not complying w/inequality. Love + peace wins always!”

Timmons said while she’s “definitely” rattled by the incident but insists, “you don’t fight hate with hate.”

“If I have to change my lifestyle, it means hate wins,” she said. “And hate doesn’t win. Love wins.”

Singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye, whose album "Love and Forgiveness" was named as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2013 by American Songwriter, has penned an epic ballot dedicated to President Donald Trump.

It was reported Sunday that Trump was rushed to the White House bunker on Friday evening as a few hundred protesters surrounded the building. As the weekend progressed, more and more protesters have come to stand in opposition to police violence and a White House they feel isn't doing enough to stop it.

Trump has tried to claim that he was really just "inspecting" the bunker, but it went down like a lead balloon.

‘Trump became what we feared’: New Lincoln Project ad accuses Trump of using the Bible as a prop to boost his polls

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.

"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."
