A family of Joe Biden supporters allegedly harassed their pro-Donald Trump neighbor with chants, as well as BLM and LGBTQI chalk slogans. Michael Mason, from Rocklin in California, has now sought a restraining order against the nearby family and their kids, who live two houses away.
He claims to have doorbell cam footage of the youngsters singing pro-Joe Biden songs. Mason says they also chalked Black Lives Matter and an LGBTQI rainbow, next to the words ‘We support LGBTQI’ outside his home to try and antagonize him.
Mason, who hangs a pro-Trump flag from his home, told CBS Sacramento: ‘I went down there and asked them, “Well, why didn’t you write this in front of your house, or anybody else’s house? Why mine?” And they just laughed at me.’
Explaining his decision to seek a restraining order, he added: ‘I didn’t want to do this. They’re making me have to do this. It’s horrible.’ Tensions between Mason and his unnamed neighbors reached boiling point as Biden was declared winner of the contest on Saturday, with police called to settle things down.
A judge will decide on whether or not to grant Mason’s application for a restraining order on Wednesday. He and his family plan to move as soon as possible.
Sean Millard lives in between Mason and the Biden supporting families, and branded their arguments ‘absolutely insane.’ He added: ‘2020 has been kind of a crazy year.’
This year’s election campaign was one of the most dramatic in recent history, with angry Trump and Biden supporters clashing with one another in the weeks leading up to polling day.
President-elect Biden, who will be inaugurated on January 20, appealed for calm and unity in his first speech since winning on Saturday.
President Trump insists he only lost because of election rigging, and has said he intends to fight this year’s result in court.
