When the news tries to alarm you that hate crimes are on the rise in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, they always leave out a few important details. Most hate crimes are hoaxes and the ones that aren’t are like this ridiculous story. A gay black man in San Diego was convicted for assaulting a gay white couple while using homophobic slurs. This is a far cry from the “white Trump supporter attacking minorities” myth the liberal media has pushing on us, isn’t it?
LGBT Weekly reports that 30-year-old black gay man Teeno Hermoso Amparano saw a gay white couple (pictured) outside of a Whole Foods in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego and lost his mind. Was he offended by their whiteness? Maybe, but he was definitely pissed off about their gayness.
Amparano began screaming homophobic and racial slurs at the two white men and then attacked. He hit one of the men in the head with a rock and assaulted the other with a shopping cart. The angry gay black man also punched and kicked the gay couple. Both victims refused treatment for their injuries in the bizarre crime.
Making this even funnier is this description of the location of the attack from Wikipedia:
Hillcrest is a small and affluent neighborhood in San Diego…known for its “tolerance and acceptance,” its gender diversity, and…has a large and active lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
Well no, it’s a place where gay guys beat up other gay guys for being gay. It don’t get any less tolerant than that.
Amparano was convicted of several misdemeanor hate crime and battery charges and sentenced to 3 years of probation. Imagine the sentence if this was a white supremacist beating a gay black couple. As part of his sentence, Amparano is banned from Whole Foods and he has to take anger management classes. That’ll teach him.
In case you aren’t quite sure that Amparano was convicted of an anti-gay hate crime, the prosecutor in the case said this in a statement:
“Violent crimes against members of San Diego’s LBGT community tear the fabric of our city. We strongly encourage victims to come forward so we can prosecute these criminals and see that they are punished,” said City Attorney Mara Elliott.
Gosh, she kind of left out the part about the hateful attacker being gay himself. In The San Diego Union-Tribune coverage of this, they not only don’t mention that Amparano is gay, they completely omit the races of all people involved.
There was almost a black-on-white hate crime conviction, but they went with the gay angle because apparently liberals think gay-on-gay hate crimes seem more reasonable.
The next time you see the liberal media freaking out over the rise in hate because of President Trump, remember that what they are really talking about is crap like this. Did Trump somehow force this gay black man to attack two white gay men? Of course not, which is why the media will simply use this case as a statistic to “prove” hatred is an epidemic in the Age of Trump.
