Angry motorist attacks Trump campaign banner in leafy Northbrook
today at 2:06 pm
Watch the video to see a motorist confront several Trump supporters who had a Trump poster in Triangle Park area near Downtown. The sight apparently so provoked a motorist that he left his car in a rage to confront the Trumpers and ultimately tried to ripe the president’s banner from a supporter’s hands.
The Trump supporters were there because another sign earlier posted in Triangle Park not so subtly blamed the 200,000 American deaths on Trump. It’s called the death scorecard, meant to remind local residents that we’re in the midst of a pandemic–something everyone already knew. The scorecard named Trump, implying that he caused the deaths–now the preferred trope of the left. (Look for details in an earlier story.)
I’m told that the village does not allow the space to be used for political signs and that officials cleared the death scorecard for display even though it has an anti-Trump message. It doesn’t seem to be to be in the spirit or the letter of the First Amendment to allow all kinds of speech, except political speech. That’s what the free speech provision of the First Amendment was first and foremost meant to do.
