An article in the local paper a couple days ago described how Trump signs have been vandalized all over town. People put them on their lawns, and then, within a few days, someone has either stolen them or pushed them over.
There have been no similar complaints from people who put up Clinton signs.
The local paper didn't get into a philosophical discussion about what that means.
But it's hard not to see this as an example, in microcosm, of a basic difference between Left and Right.
The Right believes in free speech. The Left believes in free speech for its own side, but categorizes anything it disagrees with as "hate speech," which they do their best to repress.
The Right respects other people's property. The Left does not, whether it's a Trump sign or someone's taxable income.
A friend recently put a Trump sticker on his car, somewhat apprehensively, just to see what kind of reaction it would get. Within a week one lady shook her head and hissed at him, "America is already great!"
I don't think that liberals who put a Hillary sticker on their car get equivalent reactions. My friend was worried that someone might key his car (no one has, so far). I don't think liberals worry about that.
The same friend got a Trump t-shirt. While he was walking with his girlfriend on the beach, another guy glared at him. (Do conservatives glare angrily at people wearing Hillary t-shirts?)
He said yesterday, "At the dump a guy in a pick-up truck looked at me and did a prolonged shaking of the head and amused frown, as if in disbelief." (Do conservatives condescend so ostentatiously?)
The most telling thing is that, somehow, none of this is surprising.
