You know, this elderly man sitting in a Palo Alto Starbucks really should’ve known better. How dare he enjoy a coffee while wearing a MAGA hat?! Well, one Rebecca Parker Mankey wasn’t about to stand for it:


On Monday, Rebecca Parker Mankey took pictures of a man wearing a MAGA hat, and wrote in a Facebook post that she “called the entire Starbucks to order and yelled at him.”

“He will never forget me and will think seriously about wearing that hat in my town ever again,” she wrote. “If you see him in this hat, please confront him. You do not want to be the person who didn’t speak up as we slipped into fascism.”

The man wearing the hat, identified only as Victor, told NBC Bay Area that Mankey called him a “Nazi” and tried to get other Starbucks customers to shame him.

“This woman comes over, and she says, ‘Is that a Trump hat?’ I said, ‘I think it is, yes.’ And then she turned to the rest of the audience, the people in Starbucks and said, ‘Hey, everybody! Come over here! Let’s get this guy! He’s a hater! I’m calling him out! He hates brown people. He’s a Nazi,'” Victor said.

Mankey has lost her job at a nearby music store as a result of her actions. But she can rest easy knowing that she’s got Palo Alto Human Relations Commissioner Steven Lee in her corner:

“Note: The views expressed here are my own and are not necessarily those of the Human Relations Commission, City Council or the City of Palo Alto.” Well, we sincerely hope that’s the case, because Lee’s views are objectively terrible.

And given this ratio:

It seems safe to say that a lot of other people find Lee’s views terrible, too.
