Angry leftists try to ‘ruin life’ of woman seen holding sign of drowned migrants, don’t realize she’s one of them

Far-left activists reportedly tried to ruin the life of a fellow far-left activist because they mistakenly thought that she was a supporter of President Donald Trump.

The stunning case of mistaken identity was caused because of a photo posted to Twitter by Washington, D.C. station WTOP reporter Alejandro Alvarez that showed a woman taking part in the president’s Fourth of July festivities by holding up what some misconstrued as an anti-“immigrant” sign.

Look:

Because the sign appeared to show two dead bodies and the words “CAUTION,” the woman’s fellow far-left activists falsely assumed she was mocking the deaths of two illegal aliens from El Salvador who died last month while trying to swim across the Rio Grande and enter the U.S. illegally.

And so without further ado, they pounced by reportedly calling for her to be doxxed, sharing their desires to hurt her physically and calling for her ostracization from society.

This was brought to the public’s attention by another reporter, Alex Rubinstein of the Minnesota-based news service MintPress News.

Look:

More on that “interview” he mentioned later.

For now, here are some direct examples of people calling for the woman to be “shamed”:

Unlike Alvarez, Rubinstein took the time to actually interview the woman and obtain her side of the story.

“This is so not America. American was made up of immigrants,” she said to him. “It makes me very sad, what’s going on. The children in the cages.”

She explained that her sign was designed to convey her opposition to the president’s otherwise legal and arguably necessary immigration policies.

And according to Rubinstein, she’s “kick-started multiple fundraisers and driven 4,000 miles to deliver two truckloads of goods to people suffering at the border.”

Listen to the interview below:

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

After this video began trending, some of the far-left activists who’d targeted the woman deleted their original tweets and issued apologies. But this raises an important question …

Would the doxxing and shaming have been OK had the woman been a Trump supporter?

If so, why!? While the sign did give the appearance of a “sadistic joy,” as someone at Mediaite put it, what right do people have to harass and ruin someone’s life over a joke or really any remark?

FYI, plenty of radical far-leftists activists tell repugnant jokes about conservatives — and even the children of conservatives— all the time. Would it be OK for them to be doxxed?

And if doxxing and shaming of pro-Trump Americans is OK, where does it end? Just a week ago a gay, Vietnamese journalist was beaten by far-left activists for reporting on Antifa’s activites.

Again, where does it end?

I don’t think I even want to know what comes next …

Regardless, the woman at the center of this controversy, identified by Rubinstein as Jill, issued a statement via her Twitter account early Friday morning thanking those who’ve been “so understanding” and saying that she understands how her picture “could be misconstrued.”

Look:

It’s unclear how she feels about the trend among her far-left peers of doxing, harassing and assaulting anyone with a dissenting opinion.
