Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 08, 2018

A pair of Trump supporters were caught on camera this past weekend issuing unhinged threats to a left-wing bookstore in Berkeley, California. The video, which was posted on YouTube by Berkeley's Revolution Books, shows the Trump supporters coming into the store and confronting people working there. The video begins with a woman Trump supporter asking a store staff member if she really thinks "I'm racist because I support our president?" "Yes, basically, yes," the staff member replies. A male Trump supporter, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, called the staffer "commie scum" and told her that "we're going to burn down your bookstore." The staffer informed them that she had video of them threatening to burn down the store and told them to "please leave" the premises. "This is America, f*ck you!" the man shouted at her. Later in the video, the man can be seen telling people outside the store that "Trump is going to get rid of all you pieces of sh*t."

...Ten times in the last six month, Revolution Books, the far left bookstore in the Telegraph Channing Mall, has found itself under attack from far-right activists.

The latest skirmish was Sat. March 4, the one-year anniversary of the pro-Trump rally in Martin Luther King Jr. Park that saw people on the right and Antifa and BAMN activists duking it out for control. A group of people who called themselves "Berkeley Warriors" on a live Facebook feed came from Sacramento and stormed the store.

"------- Commie scum," one demonstrator, Rob Cantrall, said on a video taken by bookstore staff while Reiko Redmonde, a volunteer manager at the store, tried to prevent him and others from entering. "You are commie scum. We are going to burn down your bookstore. You know that, right?"

Cantrall, who has come to rally in Berkeley on at least three other occasions, was wearing an American flag around his shoulders and a red "Make America Great Again," hat. He talked into his phone as he continued to berate Redmonde and the other volunteers. "---- all you anti-American pieces of ----," he said. Others demonstrating were also live-streaming their actions.

Cantrell, who is from Los Angeles, was joined by his partner of about two weeks, Lauren White, who also goes by the name Lauren Order. "Infiltrating Berkeley's Marxist Hive w/ Jacob Ku & Rob Cantrall, " White wrote on Facebook. Alexandra Davis, Jourdin Davis, and James Ian were also there, according to the group's Livestream and various Facebook pages....

"Lauren Order" that's so cute....

Thisiz Amurka, so I'm free to walk into your business, pick a fight with you, call you names and promise to burn down your book store! Then, I'm free to stand outside your business and threaten you with the wrath of Benedict Donald!

Uh huh, that's about right Goober.

All bookstores are left because rightwingers can only read 9 words of 2a and cherry-picked bible excerpts.
