A retired 74-year-old California man resident who was harassed and berated at a Starbucks at the start of the month for being an alleged “Nazi” has revealed to local media that he, the “Nazi,” is a Jew.
Rebecca Parker Mankey, the far-left, Mohawk-sporting woman who harassed victim Victor F. after she spotted him wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat inside a Palo Alto Starbucks on Monday, would have known that had she taken just a second to listen to him. Instead, she berated him with a barrage of insults and tried unsuccessfully to sic a mob on him.
“This crazy woman came over, started raving at me. She turned to the rest of Starbucks, ‘Hey everybody, here’s this racist here. He hates brown people. He’s crazy. He’s a Nazi and so forth,'” Victor, who wears a yarmulke underneath his MAGA hat, explained to local station KPIX.
But nobody heeded her, so she snapped photos of Victor and left, only to return a short time later and try again to spur the other Starbucks customers into helping her harass the 74-year-old man.
“Hey again, everybody, here’s this racist and so on … and then, as she wrote in her thing, she was disappointed that all the people didn’t come and mob me,” Victor said.
By “her thing,” he meant a Facebook status update she posted that included pictures of Victor, as well as a request that her followers confront him if they see him. She also promised to make his life miserable by harassing him at his home and his place of employment.
“I am going to publicly shame him in town and try to get him fired and kicked out of every club he is in,” she wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post. “I am going to go to his house and march up and down carrying a sign that says he hates black people. I am going to organize protests where he works to make him feel as unsafe as he made every brown person he met today.”
Except the very opposite happened and the mob wound up turning on her.
“People started harassing Parker Mankey’s family and her employer Gryphon Stringed Instruments, where she was an accountant,” KPIX reported. “The store owner decided to fire her after he read her Facebook posts.”
Afterward, she disabled her social media accounts, but not before Internet sleuths were able to capture screenshots of what she’d written, as well as what she looks like:

If only she’d acted rationally instead of behaving like a crazed maniac.
“She didn’t want to discuss the issues with me. She wanted just to scream about Nazi’s and so on and that’s what we’ve sunken to,” Victor said.
The argument could be made that it’s not “we” who’ve sunken to this level but rather so-called “progressive’ Democrats like Mankey. The fact is that, while what happened to Victor is disturbing, it’s part of a much wider trend of deranged left-wing activists labeling anyone and everybody with an opposing opinion — particularly Republicans and Trump Supporters — a “Nazi” or “white supremacist” or even “the next Hitler.”
Victor took particular issue with being compared to Hitler and revealed that he is Jewish.
Even renowned conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, a Jewish man who didn’t vote for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election and who certainly doesn’t own a MAGA hat, has been labeled a “Nazi” by the far-left because of his conservative outlook on illegal immigration, affirmative action, religious liberty and a host of other issues.
Case in point:

#BenShapiro is a master manipulator who uses false logic and made up definitions to incite POC while fooling #WhitePeople into thinking he is not #racist whose podcast and website provides a gateway to the extreme alt-right. #BenShapiroisaltright and is also a #Nazi https://t.co/4VudRziObU

@benshapiro is right, we shouldn’t call him Alt-Right. It’s just inaccurate.
A better term would be “soulless Nazi hack”.

The fact that far-leftists could trot out such lies about Jewish people is shameful, Victor argued.
“People with an education should know better than to say stupid things like that,” he said.
And therein lies the great irony of it. Far-left “progressives” claim to be highly educated, yet their behavior and rhetoric — from the tantrums they throw in the face of opposing opinions to their non-scientific stance on biological science — strongly suggests otherwise.
This belief likely stems from the false assumption that a college degree makes one “wiser.” The knowledge gleaned from a university represents a foundation, and is too often entrenched in liberal indoctrination rather than practical applications. Real wisdom is acquired through years of real-world experience, which, it would appear, is something liberals lack in abundance.
Concluding his interview with KPIX, Victor said he hopes what happened to him inspires more Trump supporters to don their MAGA gear in public.
“Lots of people have come up to me and said they sympathize and so on, but they’re scared to wear the Trump hat,” he said. “So I hope this incident brings a wave of people wearing the Trump hats just like the wave of people with anti-Trump opinions.”
