Eugenior Joseph, a 22-year-old black Trump supporter walked into a Miami Cheesecake Factory restaurant wearing a MAGA hat and was ganged up on by employees.
This incident seems to fly in the face of the whole “tolerance” garbage pushed by the left, doesn’t it? It’s hard to call yourself tolerant when you’re being racist toward someone based on their political beliefs.
Joseph was with his girlfriend’s family for a Mother’s Day lunch when, according to him, a dozen employees “verbally attacked and made threatening gestures” at him for wearing the hat.
A woman who reportedly worked at the eatery spotted Joseph and approached him as he sat at his table. According to his account, she began pointing at his hat and gesturing for other employees to come over to his table.
One of the witnesses to the alleged incident said, “[A female employee’s] finger was literally on top of [Joseph’s] head. We were all looking at her like ‘What is happening?’ She was pointing at him, calling her other coworkers, telling them to look at this guy wearing a Make America Great Again hat.”
The witness added, “Then all the employees started standing there, saying things out loud, like, ‘I’m going to knock his head in so hard his hat’s going to come off.”
“[A male employee] got behind me and another coworker came by and they were staring at each other and he fist bumped him and then he started looking at me, balling his fists, smacking his fists, trying to scare me,” Joseph explained.
“I got up and went to the restroom, my girlfriend followed me, and as we were walking back, a group of [the employees] came out from the back and they just started clapping and yelling, and just screaming things at me,” Joseph added.
After Joseph and those eating with him left, several witnesses noted that the manager of the restaurant told them that several employees admitted what they did and one was sent home.
Law enforcement was notified over the incident, however, Joseph declined to press charges opting to provide them with his account of what transpired.
Here’s how the restaurant responded online:
No guest should ever feel unwelcome in one of our restaurants and we are taking this matter very seriously. Upon learning of this incident, we immediately apologized to the guests in person. The individuals involved have been suspended pending the results of our investigation.

The color of a person’s skin shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to who they support for political office. Joseph, for example, agrees with Trump’s platform and agenda, thus he supports him. Why should he have to go against his principles just so he can fit into a racial stereotype created by liberals?
It’s hilarious how the same group of people who claim to be fighting racism are the ones most vehemently reinforcing racial stereotypes and behaviors.

Exit Polls From Irish Abortion Vote Tell a Devastating Tale
The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.
These are the words of the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland. The wording of this constitution is significant, not only because it clearly affirms that an unborn child has an equal right to life as that of its mother and that the law guarantees protection for this life.
It is also significant because these are the words the Irish people just voted to remove from its Constitution, thus legalizing abortion.
Let that sink in: like many of the legislation passed in the dark history of our own nation that dehumanized slaves and unconstitutionally restricted them from the natural rights our Constitution clearly affirm, the people of Ireland have willingly voted to remove the sacred rights of the unborn and deny that it is an autonomous life from that of its mother.
This is the toxic, godless nature of the pro-choice radical feminist left, and you’d be a fool to recognize that it’s not going fully mainstream.
The Blaze reports:
A poll conducted by RTE Television showed that almost 70 percent of respondents voted to repeal the abortion ban, and another poll for The Irish Times was similar — showing 68 percent of those surveyed voted for repealing the eight amendment, against 32 percent who said abortions should still be banned in the country.
The results also exposed large divisions between age groups, with voters over 65 mostly voting against repealing the ban on abortions, and 18 to 24-year-olds voting for repeal at roughly 87 percent.
Ireland has traditionally been a devoutly Catholic country, making the exit polling speculations even more remarkable.
Deputy prime minister of Ireland, Tanaiste Simon Coveney, said in response to the preliminary polling, “Thank you to everybody who voted today – democracy can be so powerful on days like today – looks like a stunning result that will bring about a fundamental change for the better.”
Ireland has, since it’s ratification of the Eighth Amendment in 1983, given hope to the pro-life community around the world that a First World, secular state can indeed affirm the scientifically proven fact that an unborn child is an autonomous life with the same rights as every other living being.
Clearly, this is devastating news to defenders of life around the globe, but activists have not lost hope.
Irish pro-life activist Cora Sherlock, the Blaze reports, tweeted in response to news of the surveys: “Exit polls, if accurate, paint a very sad state of affairs tonight. But those who voted No should take heart. Abortion on demand would deal Ireland a tragic blow but the pro-life movement will rise to any challenges it faces. Let’s go into tomorrow with this in mind.”
Pro-Trump Members of Congress Finding Their Lives Threatened in the Name of #Resistance
It is undeniable that the level of political vitriol has hit a disturbing peak .
It is undeniable that the level of political vitriol has hit a disturbing peak over the last few years, as progressives struggle to cope with the fact that Trump is, indeed, President, and nothing (so far) is going to change that.
Americans have a strong, proud history of criticizing our elected officials, as well we should; free speech is a foundational aspect of our founding philosophy.
However, law enforcement officials are struggling to wade through the onslaught of incredibly violent language aimed at many members of Congress and determined the legitimate threats from the empty ones.
The Washington Times reports that “In the past couple of months, the Justice Department announced action in four cases involving people who threatened serious harm, or even death, to federal lawmakers.”
“Most of those threats were made online, reflecting just one way people can convey their most vulgar feelings toward those on other sides of public policy disputes,” the explain. “Most of the targets have been Republican lawmakers, who are in the crosshairs of anti-Trump forces who relish their stance as a self-styled #Resistance.”
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Rep. Thomas A Garrett Jr., Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, and an unnamed member of Congress all received open death threats via social media because of their support for or association with Trump.
“It would be easier to dismiss these disturbed rants were it not for James T. Hodgkinson, a left-wing zealot set on assassinating Republicans,” The Washington Times notes. “He drove from Illinois to Virginia, cased the ballpark in Alexandria where Republican lawmakers were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game and, on June 14, 2017, unleashed 62 rounds from a rifle and a handgun.
Hodgkinson is the man who drove from Illinois to Virginia with the sole purpose of assassinating Republican lawmakers, something he attempted when he opened fire on several congressmen on June 14th, 2017, as they practiced for the annual Congressional Baseball Game. He fired 62 rounds from a rifle and handgun before he was fatally shot by Capitol Police special agents assigned to protect House Whip Steve Scalise, who was severely wounded by Hodgkinson.
However, in an era where you never know if violent threats on social media comes from someone letting off steam or some who has the makings of the next Hodgkinson, law enforcement has a tough job.
“I don’t envy the job law enforcement has of distinguishing between what we have to investigate and what we let slide, especially because you worry that the one case you overlook could have catastrophic consequences,” says Keith E. Whittington, a political science professor at Princeton University, as quoted by The Washington Times.
“We’re in a very polarized environment with a lot of heated rhetoric, and social media has further complicated it all,” Mr. Whittington said. “We don’t want law enforcement to overreact and police-protected political speech, but I think so far they have done a reasonably good job of investigating when people are issuing a true threat that we ought to worry about.”
Following Hodgkinson’s attack, Congress and the U.S. Capitol Police held a closed-door meeting to discuss the safety of members of Congress, and many unnamed Congressmen said they had also had their lives threatened.
While the FBI does not see a sustained trend of these threats, the U.S. Capitol Police, whose job it is to protect members of Congress, and the Justice Department declined to comment on how they are choosing to address this recent wave of threats.
Intruder Breaks Into 80-Year-Old’s Rental House, Pays For it Big Time
An 80-year-old man from Tuolumne, California heard a noise coming from his rental property located next to his house on Tuesday evening, a building that was supposed to be unoccupied, so he and his wife decided to check things out to see what was going on.
However, they didn’t just mosey on over to see what was happening without bringing a little something for the sake of protection, and boy was that ever a good decision.
The couple ended up confronting an intruder who was inside the rental property, and out of fear for their safety, the man opened fire, shooting the unwanted guest.
The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office said 29-year-old Bryce Lawrence — a transient — was shot once in the upper torso, the Bee reported. Lawrence is recovering at a hospital, KTXL-TV reported.
Lawrence was in the home with 24-year-old Bryanna Ireland of Sonora, the Bee reported, adding that she was booked into jail on suspicion of burglary.

Investigators told KTXL that Lawrence is known to be homeless and has been arrested a number of times for drugs, trespassing and attempted theft.
There’s a lesson here for both sides to learn in this particular situation. For the criminal, perhaps it’s time to apply that time and energy to getting a real job, a sustainable career that will provide for your basic needs, a feat which must come second to getting help for the drug problem.
With a steady job, the risk of being shot drops dramatically.
Secondly, this is a prime example of why gun ownership is so important and is a fundamental, God-given right. Without the Second Amendment, who knows how this encounter would’ve went down. Things might have taken a really nasty turn for the innocent, law abiding citizens.
What liberals don’t seem to understand is that when people are corrupt, twisted, and messed up, you can’t get rid of their evil ways simply by banning their access to tools. They’ll just find new tools to use against innocent people. Gun control solves absolutely nothing.
Thus, it’s critical to not infringe on the right to bear arms so that good people have the means at their disposal to defend life and property from individuals who seek to take those things away from them.
