President Donald Trump and his legions of supporters are constantly compared to authoritarians and Nazis, but the reality is it’s Left-wing Americans who behave like intolerant, bigoted, Brown Shirts who resort to violence as a way to censor, shut down, punish, or ban anyone with whom they disagree.
The most recent example comes from far-Left Portland, Ore., where the liberalism has reached a level of anger and stupidity that it has completely closed minds and stamped out reasonableness and judgment.
As reported by Willamette Week, Islam El Masry, owner of the Small Pharoah’s halal food cart, was arrested on misdemeanor assault charges in recent days, after throwing a bottle of Gatorade at a black female customer then allegedly spraying her with Sriracha.
The alleged victim, Carlotta Washington, took a video of the incident which was subsequently provided to the local news outlet by an eyewitness. The video shows El Masry arguing with Washington, who told police he called her the n-word after she tried to pay for her meal with quarters.
In the video, El Masry can be seen and heard telling Washington to “get the f**k away” from his cart before hurling the beverage bottle at her, which caused her to drop her phone.
[Caution: Strong language]
After that, Washington said that El Masry sprayed her with the hot sauce, but that’s not on the video. “It was in my eyes and all on my skin. It was burning terribly,” she said. Eyewitness Rachel Good, who gave the video to Willamette Weekly, said she saw Washington right after the incident and she had Sriracha on her shirt, face, and shoulders.
Witnesses to the incident can be heard shouting at El Masry, “That’s wrong!” — as she implores someone to call the police.
After he was booked by police and released, El Masry admitted to using a racial slur against Washington and that he threw Sriracha on her in a pair of rambling videos.
He blamed fasting during Ramadan for his behavior — and the media, which he claims blew everything out of proportion. And he says he wants to return to his native Egypt soon because he’s not making any money in America.
That said, Washington tearfully recalled the indecent in an interview with The Oregonian, but added that she has forgiven El Masry and hopes that he doesn’t lose his business over the ordeal. And she added this: “I don’t want anybody doing anything to this man at all.”
So, police called; arrest made; restitution will be forthcoming; alleged victim forgives. In normal times throughout our history that would have been the end of it.
Not these days, however. Not when perpetually angry authoritarian Leftists get involved. (Related: Oregon now seizing bank accounts of Christians who refuse to abandon their religious beliefs.)
In a separate report, Willamette Weekly noted that the owner of a different food cart — the Elmasry Egyptian Food Cart — has said that he and his wife have been harassed by angry protests and other stupidity since the incident involving Washington.
The news site noted:
Gharib Muhammad, the operator of Elmasry Egyptian Food Cart, says he’s bared the brunt of angry protests since last week’s report that the proprietor of the Small Pharoah’s cart called a black woman the n-word and attacked her with a Gatorade bottle and chili sauce after she tried to pay for a meal with mostly quarters.
White guilt runs deep in “Whitelandia,” as Portland has been called. So any perceived racial slight must be angrily denounced and physically cleansed. And what the heck, all Egyptians look the same in Whitelandia, right?
For his part, Muhammad noted that he loves his customers and likes to “go extra” for them. Even when they’re angry liberals mistaking him for a different North African male food cart vendor.
