RIGHT WING INTOLERANCE ~ 5-29-17 ~ T. Rump, Trump By Trump
Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the British Gauradian, gets slammed to the floor for asking Greg Gianforte his opinion of 23 million Americans losing health care under the Republican’s proposal.
Greg Gianforte, a Montana Republican running for Congress, was thereafter elected to office. Only in Montana? No, anywhere!
There is something wrong about this picture.
Greg’s response is that his aggressive behavior was caused by a liberal journalist.
Gianforte’s story is refuted by eyewitnesses – no less than a crew from Fox News, who describe the candidate grabbing Jacobs’ neck with both hands, slamming him to the floor, and punching him.
No matter the facts say his followers.
Not surprising after Donald Trump declared journalists “enemies of the people” – a play out the Hitler’s collection of speeches book Trump reportedly kept by his bedside.
Gianforte’s alleged assault is the latest addition to a growing body of evidence suggesting right-wing intolerance of facts and of even being questioned.
Intolerance and ignorance often go hand in hand.
In a political atmosphere of anything goes, goes anything.
