An anti-Trump mania has millions in its grip

Ridgewood NJ, This is a society-wide phenomenon. An anti-Trump mania has millions in its grip. Just not enough millions to outnumber the people openly or secretly supporting him and (obviously) voting for him! An assistant dean of a county college was publicly busted ripping out a neighbor’s pro-Trump lawn signs prior to the general election in 2016, so lawless, biased anti-Trump behavior was never limited to people on the fringe of society. Seemingly well-balanced or respectable citizens who hate Trump can’t even control themselves according to age old law, much less modern political norms. Neither this pro-Trump commenter, nor most other fellow Trump supporters in northern New Jersey, could keep pro-Trump lawn signs unmolested in the grass for more than a few hours from late 2015, when Trump was beginning to dominate the field vying for the Republican nomination for president, straight through to the November 2016 general election. Clearly, freedom of speech, and of political association, have been de facto suspended in this country.

    VIDEO: Trump supporter says he’s had 12 yard signs stolen

    A north Indianapolis resident says he’s fed up. Someone has been stealing his Donald Trump yard signs – and so far, he’s on his 13th sign after the first 12 were stolen.

    The man, who did not wish WTHR to use his name or the name of his street due to safety concerns, says he bought two Trump signs at the beginning of March “and showed my support by placing one in my front lawn. That sign was stolen in its first night in my yard.”

    The second sign was stolen, too. All the way up to the 12th one.

    “I’ve since had to place two separate orders of 10 for a total of 20 signs. To date I have had 12 stolen,” he told WTHR.

    He set up surveillance cameras and recorded eight videos of the sign thefts in broad daylight, “and all being committed by grown adults. In some instances it has been neighbors. I have police reports filed and they have caught one of the many sign thieves that have stolen the signs.”

    “Since I’ve had the signs, I have been yelled and cursed at by multiple drivers who have passed me in my front lawn near the trump sign. The insults have ranged from being called a ‘racist’ to being called ‘a disgusting human being,'” he said.

    With the Indiana primary coming up in May, he says he wants to “shed a different light on Trump supporters who have been unfairly labeled.”

    It’s against the law to remove yard signs unless you’re the property owner – or you’ve given someone permission to take them down, or if they’re blocking the right of way.
