What really irked the Left about this guy was that he was black and couldn’t be accused of racism for his aggressive style.
Being black, he knew how to handle these troublemakers. That loudmouthed belligerent yakity-yak might work on some guilt ridden white guy, but he wasn’t playing the fool. He gave back as good as he got.
We’ve seem the same phenomenon at inner city schools where the kids run wild in halls until the school board hires a big burly black principal who isn’t going to take any guff. He grabs the little miscreants by the scruff of their necks, orders them to shut their damn mouths, pull up their pants and suddenly their attitude changes for the better.
Why? Because they know he ain’t no chump and they won’t get away with crying “racism.”
