One of Donald Trump’s most popular stances has been his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration. Many Trump supporters love this idea, but one Trump supporter ended up having to build his own personal wall because some people just don’t understand free speech.
The Albany Times Union reported that after Colonnie, New York, resident Robert Marini had several Trump signs stolen from his yard, he build a “wall” of barbed wire around his latest sign, as well as a couple of lights to deter thieves.
The sign also came with a warning: “DO NOT Touch The Sign. If you are reading this, you are TRESPASSING. You WILL BE PROSECUTED To The Fullest Extent Of The Law.”
Marini was understandably upset that people were stealing his signs simply because they don’t agree with his politics. Marini has had five signs stolen from his yard since June, but he is hoping this latest sign will stick around for a while.
“I don’t have enough time in my life to go around stealing Bernie Sanders signs or Hillary Clinton signs,” he said. “It’s not something that I even thought about doing. Everybody’s got a right to free speech, right? At least we think so in America today. But some people on the left don’t believe in that, so they just take what’s not theirs.”
While he hasn’t called the police regarding the previous thefts, saying that he didn’t want to bother the police with something so trivial, Marini stated that he will not hesitate to call if the latest sign is stolen.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that a Trump sign is getting stolen in New York State. New York is one of the most liberal states in America, and we all know how tolerant liberals are of those who have different beliefs.
