According to the Willamette Week’s report of the incident one female employee was so terrified by the display of hate-filled knuckle-dragging group-think by her distraught Donk co-workers that she and her bi-racial boyfriend fled the party in self-described “terror”.
She later quit her job at the company which sponsored the party turned Klan rally.
Sarah Mykkanen wrote an essay for the newspaper about the incident.
“In horror I watched as they strung a thick rope over a beam, with a noose tightly tied on one end. They held up the effigy of Trump, and put the noose around his neck.
The room filled with my white co-workers became a lynch mob when they started chanting “lynch him!” and “lynch the bitch!” People were laughing and taking snapchats and cheering as they swung around the effigy of Trump from a noose.
She goes on to describe the emotionally gut-wrenching scene in gory detail:
I was getting flashes from history; saw my coworkers with pointy white hats and robes, as they gutturally and repeatedly chanted, “Lynch him!”
She concludes her essay with a chilling observation about the “tolerant Left”:
Will I be on the end of that rope next if I disagree with the majority? Is Portland the birthplace of Neo- McCarthyism?
Amazingly, the newspaper that published the essay held a Cinco de Mayo party earlier this year where they smashed a Trump pinata and live-streamed the festivities.
The up side?
