In the days following the Mike Brown shooting GOP primary candidate (MO-1) Martin Baker took a very Missouri-like approach by not jumping to conclusions and waiting for the facts in the case. In Missouri it is called a “Show Me” attitude.
Baker stood shoulder to shoulder with Mike Brown’s parents and Al Sharpton on the old courthouse steps in St. Louis after the shooting. While some questioned his choice of company that day Baker received no threats or insults regarding his attendance at Sharpton’s presser.
“I support due process for Officer Wilson as I support it for the Brown Family. I firmly believe in equal justice under the law.”
Martin later attended a rally in support Officer Darin Wilson. As news of this rally in support of Wilson spread across social media it wasn’t long before Baker’s attendance was noticed by those super tolerant liberals.

The insults and racial slurs began to fall like not so gentle rain. Cries of “Uncle Tom!” “Coon” and “Pet Negro” soon littered his Twitter timeline. The progressive hate came so fast and furious that at one point Martin’s name was trending nationally on twitter. Here are just a few examples:
Over the past two weeks the level of vitriol from the left has escalated against Martin, Martin is used to the attacks being a black conservative. However, the left is now attacking and even posting pictures of his children.

These people are now insulting and endangering his children.
Those who claim to be the most tolerant are always the most intolerant.
