As Democrat presidential contender Kamala Harris publicly admits to suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), not by name, but by telling a crowd at the Human Rights Campaign fundraiser in Los Angeles about the psychological problems she has been having since the 2016 election of President Trump, which includes shouting at her television, "despair, and depression, and anxiety, and fear," we note in another recently reported story, that TDS obviously affects some liberals more than others.
THIS IS WHAT TDS DOES TO THE BRAIN
Rebecca Parker Mankey, seen above, verbally attacked and berated a 74 year old Jewish man at the Palo Alto Starbucks, after witnessing him sitting and drinking his coffee, as he does almost daily, wearing a MAGA hat.
Unlike many of the "attacks" that turn out to be hoaxes by MAGA supporters against others, such as the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax, which received wall-to-wall coverage for nearly two weeks before police concluded he staged his own attack, two days later, almost no liberal mainstream media outlet is reporting on this. Their local affiliates have, but the increase of attacks against MAGA supporters are rarely acknowledged, and when they are they are buried fast.
Also unlike the hoaxes, we not only have the man's version of what happened, but Mankey herself verified it on her now-disabled or deleted Facebook account, after she started taking pictures of him and asking her followers to help identify him, and to confront him if they see him.
Here is how she described the scene in the Palo Alto Starbucks, to which the man, Victor, calls accurate. She also posted pictures of him just sitting there calmly drinking his coffee, along with the note below.
According to Palo Alto Online, she confronted him by screaming that he was "Nazi scum," told him he hates brown people, then attempted to get everyone in Starbucks to mob him. On Twitter, she threatened him, stating "I am going to publicly shame him in town and try to get him fired and kicked out of every club he is in. I am going to go to his house march up and down carrying a sign that says he hates black people. I am going to organize protests where he works to make him feel as unsafe as he made every brown person he met today."
As can be seen in an interview KPIX CBS SF Bay Area conducted with Victor after seeing him strolling through town wearing his MAGA hat, Victor agrees with her version of what happened. He was sitting there drinking his coffee and she approached him and started raving, then left, then came back and started screaming at him again, continuing as he went to the register and followed him out of the Starbucks.
More from Victor, via Palo Alto Online:
He wears the MAGA hat regularly, he said, but he never sees anyone else wearing one. Almost everyone who approaches him tells him they want to wear the hats but are worried about repercussions.
"There's a fear in the air," he said of people who support President Donald Trump. "I hope this doesn't start a trend of people getting in your face."
He denied that the hat, which for some people has come to symbolize hatred, racism and division, represents those ideas.
"Let me ask you: The phrase Make America Great — is there anything negative in it? In the 1952 election, people wore 'I Like Ike' buttons, but no one saw it as a threat," he said.
"Saying that a hat is pro-Trump or pro-American is absurd. There has always been a picture of the president and the postmaster in the post office. Are we saying now that putting a picture of this president up is considered a provocation?
"What's happened around here is that people get the idea that if you're for Trump you are an evil person," he said.
He bemoaned the loss of civil discourse over politics and says no one has approached him to have a reasonable debate.
Gryphon Stringed Instruments, where Mankey worked as an office manager and/or accountant (depending on which report one reads), immediately terminated her employment after seeing her FB post calling for "doxing" an individual.
On their Facebook page they issued two statements, one immediately after the Mankey's post went live, then another nearly four hours later. In the first post they stated "Gryphon Strings has been made aware of the incident involving one of our employees on Monday, 4/1/19 at another Palo Alto business. We would like to make it clear that we do not condone harassment or hate speech of any kind. We are currently addressing the matter internally. Thank you for your concern."
In the second one, they announced her termination, saying "With regard to the aforementioned incident on 4/1/19; the employee in question has been terminated. Gryphon does not believe anyone should be harassed or subject to hate speech no matter their beliefs. Music has historically been something that has brought people of diverse socio-political backgrounds together. We would like to make it clear that the opinions expressed and actions taken by the employee are not indicative of how we conduct ourselves at the shop and we hope we can continue to serve our customers across the country respectfully and universally as we have done for nearly 50 years."
Mankey's supporters claim she has received death threats and other threats of harm, treating this incident as if it is something that makes her a victim, with the Palo Alto Human Relations Commissioner, Steven Lee, issuing a statement calling Mankey "beloved," and claiming Mankey "allowed herself to be pulled down into that muck when she encountered a man wearing a MAGA hat....."
WHERE IS THE LIBERAL MAINSTREAM MEDIA?
Given the amount of overwhelming coverage a little-known black gay actor, Jussie Smollett, recieved from the liberal media, attacking Trump supporters and trying to blame president Trump for the fake attack, after he falsely claimed two "white" men, in a red hat, attacked him, yelled homophobic and racial slurs are him, tied a rope around his neck and yelled "This is MAGA country," just to find out two weeks later that he orchestrated the entire "attack," the media should have an obligation to report when a crazed TDS infected zealot attacks and elderly Jewish man. Yet a search using the Google search engine, brings up only reports from local affiliates and conservative outlets on the first page of the search results.
So, just to double check the search results, I plugged in the name "Parker Mankey," into CNN's search feature, as they were one of the liberal outlets that spent an overwhelming amount of time on both the Covington fiasco and the Smollett hoax, and this is what I found:
Did the same thing at the New York Times website:
Then I tried Washington Post, found one result, but it was from 2005, and the article was about home sales... so they too complete ignore an attack against a Trump supporter, while constantly pushing false narrative against Trump supporters as they did with the Covington Catholic students.
Two days after an unhinged woman verbally attacks a 74 year old man for doing nothing more than wearing a Make America Great Again hat while drinking his coffee, and the media completely ignores it.
Frankly, I wasn't surprised but was willing to take the time to check in case Google search just missed the results.
From September 2015 to November 2018, there were over 600 documented acts of violence, harassment and threats against Trump supporters, yet the media narrative continues to claim that violence by MAGA supporters is increasing, while refusing to provide their dwindling audience the truth of who is perpetrating the violence, which is the unhinged liberals with Trump Derangement Syndrome, like the woman discussed above.
Just imagine how much coverage this incident would have garnered in the liberal media if it had been the man in the MAGA hat that verbally attacked an elderly liberal.
