Hate Crime? Gay Pro-Trump Activist Scott Presler Says He Was Assaulted, Harassed By Three Men Over His Political Beliefs

Popular conservative activist Scott Presler was out doing pro-Trump advocacy with a sign when a group of men allegedly threw projectiles at him and insulted him for being gay.

Presler wrote that he “stayed calm as they approached me & insulted me for being gay. This is a hate crime.”

The men throwing things at him was not captured on film — but the subsequent confrontation was.

“If you’re going to throw things at me at least do a better job. Why are you attacking a gay man?” Presler says on the video as he approaches the men. “Why are you attacking a gay Trump supporter, I’d like to know?”

The men appear somewhat stunned as he approached them, then asked why he supports President Trump. Presler cited the just-announced effort from the administration to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe. As he was making his point, one of the men yelled “f-ck that n-gga, boy.”

“Do you think gay people like me should be thrown off buildings because I was born homosexual?” Presler asks.

Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Presler said that the incident will not stop him from publicly advocating for President Trump.

“Conservatives are verbally attacked like this on a daily basis. I’m lucky that their projectile from a moving car didn’t hit me. But I’m not going to let this experience stop me. I want to show conservatives that we can be brave. I want people to see that I’m not going to be bullied or intimidated into silence,” Presler said.

This week has seen multiple people being targeted for harassment or threats over their support for the president. Earlier in the day, a woman locked her Twitter account after posting a video of herself harassing an elderly man in a thrift store over his Make America Great Again hat.

Earlier this week, a couple had a gun pulled on them while shopping at Sam’s Club because they were also wearing MAGA hats.

The mainstream media has been silent.
