Gay man attacked by Trump fan who warned ‘my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now’

A gay Florida man said he was stalked and attacked by a man who claimed he was inspired by Donald Trump’s election.

Chuck Redding noticed an SUV tailing him after dropping off a friend, but he realized something was wrong when the dark-colored Jeep Cherokee crept closer as he turned onto his street in Sarasota, reported WFTS-TV.

The 75-year-old, who thinks he was targeted because of the pro-LGBT bumpers stickers on his car, parked in front of a neighbor’s house — and that’s when the other driver confronted him.

The man, who he described as a Hispanic man with a beard, started banging on Redding’s car window and then attacked him.

“He yanked the door open, dragged me out, ripped my shirt — I was on the pavement,” Redding said.

Redding suffered cuts, bruises and abrasions in the attack, which the assailant linked to Trump’s election.

“He kept saying, ‘You know, my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now,'” Redding said.

Redding said he’s never been harassed or attacked for being openly gay, but he and some friends have decided to obtain concealed carry permits as protection.

"This individual appeared to be running toward the black sedan, but suddenly stopped, taking a kneeling position, and placing his hands above his waist, revealing what appeared to be the butt of a handgun," Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said.

‘Party of Lincoln is dead, dead, dead’: Ex-House Republican lawyer says it’s time to give up on ‘hopeless’ GOP

Published

Former House Republican Congressional Committee Investigative Counsel Sophia Nelson this week published a scathing column about her former party in which she encouraged Americans to simply give up hope that it will ever properly serve as a check on President Donald Trump.

In her latest Daily Beast column, Nelson called the GOP "hopeless" and declared that "the party of Lincoln is dead, dead, dead" after so many of its members stayed silent in the wake of Trump's widely panned photo-op stunt at St. John's Church in Washington D.C.

Pulitzer-winning historian issues dark warning about Trump’s GOP

Published

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Anne Applebaum fears President Donald Trump and his Republican allies might complete their authoritarian transformation by stealing November's election.

Applebaum appeared Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss her latest column for The Atlantic, where she warns that Republicans have been complicit in Trump gathering authoritarian powers over democratic institutions -- and they may soon finalize that process.

"What would come next?" Applebaum said. "In a lot of liberalizing countries or countries that cease to be democracies, what comes next is the attempt to steal an election, and what I hope all Americans will be focused on over the next several months is will Trump and will the Republican Party collaborate in an attempt to steal this election?"
