It’s pretty typical for Democrats to be silent on issues that face Republicans, especially hate crimes.
Larry Elder, the Republican challenger against Gavin Newsom for the seat as California Governor, was the victim of what seems to be a hate crime, after a pink-haired bimbo in a gorilla mask chucked an egg at Elder that narrowly missed him.
Fox News reached out to Newsom to ask him if he would condemn the attack or not, to which Newsom did not respond… go figure. Newsom probably has more sticks to nonchalantly toss around under an overpass.
The progressive governor has also been silent online, not even mentioning the attack on any of his social media channels.
Aren’t Democrats supposed to be the most shrill when it comes to hate crimes and racism?
The conservative radio host also said after the attack that his security detail was “shot with a pellet gun,” vowing the “intolerant left” will not stop his campaign.
The attack was condemned as “racist” online, with many conservatives pointing out that the assault would be front-page news if it was a Democrat on the receiving end of the egg attack.
At the time of the attack, Elder was in Venice Beach touring a homeless encampment. Where could a lefty-loon even conjure up rage when someone, ANYONE, is attempting to improve the homeless crisis? Get over yourself.
Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw tweeted –
That a black gubernatorial candidate can have eggs thrown at him by a white woman in a gorilla mask, with zero condemnation or coverage, tells you all you need to know about the left and their media allies.
Everything is racist. Unless racism is targeted toward a Republican.

Even former Republican candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates Jeffrey A. Dove Jr. shared his response –

As for the recall race for the CA governorship, Elder is currently in the lead.
