Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Aitya Asastry and his two friends went for pizza after a Saturday evening out. That's when a woman approached them with a racist tirade that left them terrified. Report Advertisement "My friend, who's American but of Puerto Rican descent, was the first one she targeted. And myself and my other friend kind of distanced ourselves, like, ‘hey let's not do this tonight.' And she followed us down and continued to escalate things and became more and more agitated and she started calling me things like terrorist," Aditya told Q13 Fox.

For his own protection, Asastry pulled out his cell phone camera and began recording. The woman then slapped the camera out of his hand, breaking the phone.

While they tried to walk around the corner to get away from the woman, but they were already terrified.

"When I went home it was much more painful to kind of process the things that were being said. The things about ‘get out of my country' and the more divisive rhetoric that was said was really what gets to me," he explained.

Aditya called the police, who are currently investigating the alleged assault. Report Advertisement

The incident came just days after another in Auburn, Washington where a 26-year-old man was beaten with a baseball bat due to the color of his skin.

Had a Chrump-maniac Scream at me when I was stopped at a stoplight last Friday in downtown Chicago. Wearing his Red Hat, he told me I was driving too slowly. I told him if he was late, he should have left home earlier and that I was a free born American with freedom and liberty to drive as I wish.

He saw my 2 Indian Clients in the car and started yelling "build that wall, make America great again, build that wall".

The light changed and I paused, waiting for him to proceed. He just sat there screaming "Build that wall".

These Chrumpers are disgusting.

Cool story, sweetheart.

So a crazy lady scared this guy and it's news? This guy must be used to getting participation trophies and is unable to handle a real world situation. You built that, snowflakes.

No, it's the Southern Strategy.

Thanks for proving that Trumpsters are okay with racism, harassment and violence. Yet if Trump doesn't get applauded for every word he ekes out it's "treason".

Hmmmmmm. Did you cry racism when republicans didn't clap for Obama. Come on, you can tell us buttercup...

I don't like trump. Never have. I like him more than I like some limpwrist that calls the cops because a crazy lady harassed him and two friends. He needs somebody to help him overcome that major obstacle called life in any city on earth.

Trump is stirring the pot with his hate filled rhetoric. It's no surprise that some of our many nutcases in this country see that as a green light to follow his lead.

The woman in the video looks like what I assume Laura looks like.

Mental illness or drugs, or both. Just as sad that people are trying to politicize it.
