Reginald Scott See of Martinsburg, West Virginia decided enough was enough. So enraged was he at the politics of divisiveness that have gripped our country these last two years that on Wednesday he decided he could no longer stay on the sidelines.
So what was it that pushed this average American from Appalachia over the edge? Was it the site children in cages along our southern border that have enraged so many people the last week?
No. The straw that broke the camel’s back for Reginald Scott See wasn’t the policies themselves, but rather how the owners of small restaurant chose to respond.
The Red Hen restaurant made headlines over the weekend when they took a principled stand against the administration’s disastrous immigration policies and decided not to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
That was a bridge too far for Reginald Scott See, who drove to the restaurant in neighboring Virginia and hurled animal feces at the small establishment.
So extensive was the act of vandalism that the local fire station was forced to dispatch a crew to clean the potentially hazardous mess up.

Trump supporters always praise first responders as sacred pillars of American society that should be revered and stay above politics. But in the Trump era, nothing is sacred, apparently.
