Enough is Enough An Open Letter From a Young Republican Woman By Natalie Baldassarre

Many are surprised by the evil, partisan hatred that has come out of Alexandria, Virginia today where Illinois native James T. Hodgkinson gunned down four Americans, including a Congressman and law enforcement officers. I am not. As a 21-year-old Republican woman, I have experienced outrageous partisan behavior since June 16, 2015 - and I know I am not alone.

I have been on the ‘Trump Train’ since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States in June 2015. Not once has my support wavered. I spent countless hours making phone calls for then-candidate Trump ahead of the New York State Primary. I volunteered at his rally in Buffalo, New York. My car is adorned with ‘TRUMP-PENCE’ bumper stickers, my backpack sports Trump buttons, and my bedroom walls are lined with Trump campaign memorabilia. Donald Trump is the reason I would like to work in politics today.

Many people are shocked to know that I support Donald Trump (because all young women are supposed to be Democrats, right?). Many have praised me for standing up for what I believe in.

But let it be known, I have been flipped off, scoffed at, and sworn at. I’ve been called a racist, a sexist, a fascist, homophobic, xenophobic, toxic, and islamophobic. My car has been scratched and keyed innumerable times. I’ve had Trump lawn signs ripped out and thrown across my front yard. I have been laughed at and tormented by people who I used to call friends. I have a family member who refuses to speak to me because they are such strong opponents of Donald Trump. Former friends have told me they hate me and to never talk to them again.

I have also felt uncomfortable in class when scathing professors showed no remorse in ripping on Trump and his supporters. They preach, they don’t teach. And they make eye contact, their rude words obviously directed at me, personally.

Sadly, this is the new norm for the “tolerant left”.

I have never been shy about my support for Donald Trump; I should not have to be. But today is the first time that I can say that I am scared.

I have never been worried about someone physically attacking me for my beliefs, although my parents have been for some time. I should have listened.

Today’s act of violence against our country’s public servants could have been prevented. This senseless act carried out by a Democratic activist is a direct representation of what the left’s propaganda is doing to America.

What else should we expect when a desperate comedienne calls for the bloodied head of our President? When famous rappers and Shakespearian plays depict the President’s assassination? When the President’s 11-year-old son has become a target for deranged liberals who have no shame in dragging a child in to their sick political attacks?

When delusional politicians make baseless and unfounded claims that the President of the United States and his administration are traitors to America and her people?

What about the many leaks painting a picture of the President and his associates as traitors? We’re hearing much of the information from those “unnamed sources” is false, but the damage is done. The Hodgkinson’s of the world believe it all and never hear the faint corrections.

The “tolerant” left has gone too far with violent, hateful, demeaning rhetoric that preys on the weak-minded. When is enough, enough? I am not racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, toxic, islamophobic, or fascist. I don’t know any Trump supporters who are. Even so, I feel like I’m a target for more than just officious leftist hate – I fear some unstable leftist spun up by all the lies from Democratic leaders will try to kill me, and the rest who are trying to ‘Make America Great Again.’
