The signs popped up in front yards of Trump supporters in Coronado, California, near San Diego.

The red, white, and blue signs were designed in the style of Trump signs, but were clearly meant to insult Trump supporters.

One couple spoke to KNSD-TV about the racist sign they found in their yard. They were likely targeted because they had a Trump flag hanging at their home.

"It was sad that anybody would think that about us, first of all, just because of the flag we have, because that's just not us," Ken Slanie said.

"We've lived in Coronado since 1968," he added. "So we've been here 52 years, and I've never seen anything like this before, where people are so divided and it's ridiculous. Everybody, we've got friends that are Biden fans and friends that are Trump fans and friends of all nationalities, and I've never seen anything like this before in Coronado, and it's kind of sad to see that.

Police spokeswoman Lea Corbin told KNSD that police had investigated three homes where the unwanted signs were installed, but that there was no crime committed.

"We do not have a crime," Corbin said in the email statement. "Simply placing a sign in another's yard may be unwanted but [is] not a crime."

Well, in fact racism plays a big role in MAGA-world.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has sparked widespread outrage by appearing to refer to African Americans and Americans as two separate groups in comments about Black voters that have since gone viral.

 

And Malcolm Kenyatta, a Democratic Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, argued that McConnell’s words were not a slip of the tongue but were instead an accurate reflection of the Republican party’s mindset toward Black voters.

“Mitch McConnell’s comments suggesting African Americans aren’t fully American wasn’t a Freudian slip – it was a dog whistle. The same one he has blown for years,” Kenyatta said.
