    This kind of behavior is typical of a liberal. this is the kind of stuff “progressives” want to bring into our communities. Do you really want your children to be assaulted by creepy old democrats or worse illegals? Do you want your paycheck to go directly to a BLM goon and their welfare-queen mother? This is the liberal agenda folks, and it ruining our communities! We need a strong leader who will kick the trash to the curb and send it back to the mexican landfill whence it came. A vote for snake-hillary is a vote to have your children corrupted and your paycheck stolen! Wake up America, the real Americans are here to save the day.
