A south Palo Alto activist has been fired from her accounting job at Gryphon Stringed Instruments after chasing a man wearing a Make America Great Again cap out of Starbucks and then posting about the confrontation on Facebook.

Rebecca Parker Mankey, 46, was fired on Tuesday (April 2), the day after she yelled at a man with a bushy gray beard named Victor who regularly visits the Starbucks at 361 California Ave. in Palo Alto wearing a red MAGA hat. Mankey didn’t return the Post’s requests for comment.

“Anybody in Palo Alto know this freak?” Mankey asked in a widely shared Facebook post that included two photos of the man at Starbucks. “He will never forget me and will think seriously about wearing that hat in my town ever again. If you see him in this hat, please confront him.”

Mankey went on to write that she yelled at him, “called the entire Starbucks to order” and yelled at him again about hating Latinos.

 


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

I suspect that a great many people fear harassment or violence and thus refrain from wearing MAGA caps, displaying Trump bumper-stickers, and putting up Trump yard signs.  Sad that this is what our country has come to.

I never wear hats. Even in the winter. Never liked hats. That being said with what is currently going on I think I'm gonna order a MAGA hat and wear it everywhere I see liberals.

Not Me, I invite anyone to mess with me. I have a MAGA hat, but it is personally signed by Trump, so it's a collector piece for me.  I do have a few MAGA Trump shirts I wear and nobody messes with me

 

I was in Southern Mindanao region of Philippines in October riding my motorcycle 7 hours per day all the way from Davao City to General Santos, and there is a heavy presence of Muslims in General Santos, I wore my Trump gear proudly and waited to see if anyone wanted to kick boots with me, as usual no takers

 

I wore my shirt all over Manila area and many of the foreigners from England and Australia only had positive thing  to say about Trump, seems like the love Trump in UK and Australia. 


Just when you think you have TDS eradicate,  a new case shows up.

What do we bet that the company that fired her will be picketed, perhaps vandalized, and ultimately forced to rehire her with restored back pay?

Doesn't surprise me. All the Filipinos my wife and I know here in the US are big Trump supporters. I think in a way they think of him as the American version of Duterte because of how politically incorrect he is. My wife has made that comparison though in my opinion Trump is not nearly as dictatorial as Duterte.

I see that a lot here as well here in NC as well with all my wife's Filipino friends. They were also giving my wife some flak because our niece is now a visa overstay even though she is not living with us or even in the state.

It would be an interesting, albeit possibly dangerous, experiment to wear a MAGA cap in various public venues and to chart the reactions received.  Might even be some political or shrinkological journal interested in publishing the findings, even as a letter to the editor.
