This senior editor at ThinkProgress has it bad:
A visit from a plumber left ThinkProgress senior editor Ned Resnikoff “rattled” due to fear that the plumber may have voted for Donald Trump.

Resnikoff stated his fears in a November Facebook post, a screenshot of which is now making the rounds on the Internet.

The plumbing visit, which came four days after the 2016 election, became a harrowing experience for Resnikoff even though the plumber was “a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional.”

“He was a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional,” Resnikoff shared. “But he was also a middle-aged white man with a southern accent who seemed unperturbed by this week’s news.”

Resnikoff said his fear was rooted in the chance that the plumber knew he was Jewish.

“While I had him in the apartment, I couldn’t stop thinking about whether he had voted for Trump, whether he knew my last name is Jewish, and how that knowledge might change the interaction we were having inside my own home,” he said.
An amazing instance of Trump-induced hysteria. Mr. Resnikoff appears to be only a step away from walling off a section of his home and living in his safe space like Anne Frank because he's scared that his plumber may have voted for Trump, which, of course, would make him an anti-Semite and a probable brown-shirt. Is there to be a diary? I shall look forward to it with considerable interest.

The plumber may not have known he was Jewish, but he knew he was a liberal. Plumbers can always spot a liberal.

Their sh!t don't stink.

Resnikoff should take a good hard look at his own bigoted self. Are we supposed to care that he will never feel safe again, even if "Trump is gone in four years". Pansy.

Lefties can't see their reflection.
Plus, being Leftie means never being wrong, or bigoted, or racist, or .... .

Poor Resnikoff ... he's gonna need more coloring books, crayons, Play Doh, and a new blankie.

I nominate Ned Resnikoff for King of the Pansys.

What has been happening in U.S. politics lately is insane; and it's literally driving otherwise sane and capable people totally bonkers.
The left controlled media is criminal in the way they attack anything contrary to their apparent agenda of transforming the U.S.A. into...what exactly?
There are some very wicked people about.
Western civilization needs to find some way of getting the lunatic left out of the media and education systems.

In microcosm, it's like when John Howard beat Paul Keating in 1996. Oh the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Clark-Kent-like Howard's image as a vampire and evil dictator went up on posters all over. 'We wuz robbed, we got the most votes, it's a dictatorship..' and the shrill wailing got louder and louder, even as we hoped they'd quieten down when their fears proved baseless.

They're just warming up with the fake Russia stories. Let me introduce you to one of my Dad's favourite words for Commies and others, it may be useful:

We have a plumber a couple of doors along in our street. Lovely bloke.
Do you know that, while needing to master a massive volume of knowledge and skills during their apprenticeship*, the amount of fundamental principles is really quite small, and can be summed up in one phrase, viz: Hot on the left, cold on the right, and shit don't flow uphill.
*We still train tradies that way in Oz.

What a wuss.

It's a sure sign someone is an antisemite hgo has a Jewish son-in-law and daughter with whom he is on good and affectionate terms.

Oh wait...

Progs or lefties (they are none of them actual liberals) are deluded, malicious, and malevolent at the same time. I have not been willing to give any of them the benefit of the doubt for good intentions for many years, having seen their viciousness and mendacity so constantly on exhibit.
