Larry Elder’s Security Detail Hit by a Pellet Gun
'The intolerant left will not stop us. We will recall Gavin Newsom'
California GOP candidate for governor Larry Elder has said his security detail was physically assaulted with a pellet gun, forcing his campaign event to grind to a halt.
The Republican candidate said on Twitter:
"Today I kicked off the Recall Express bus tour.
"Before we even left Los Angeles, my security detail was physically assaulted, shot with a pellet gun, and hit with projectiles."
"The intolerant left will not stop us. We will recall Gavin Newsom."
"We will save California."

The news comes after Neon Nettle reported that a white woman wearing a monkey mask threw eggs at Elder.
A video of the attack showed a woman getting within several feet of Elder throwing eggs at his head.
The woman proceeded to hurl abuse at the security detail who was attempting to shield Elder.
The woman then hurls verbal abuse at someone who seemed to be working security and attempting to shield Elder.
"We're getting egged from behind," a member of his security detail can be heard saying.

Elder will be the first black governor of California if elected, and white liberals are not happy with that.
Last month, a leftist opinion piece in The Los Angeles Times described Elder as the "black face of white supremacy."
The Times opinion piece read:
"I won’t lie. Few things infuriate me more than watching a Black person use willful blindness and cherry-picked facts to make overly simplistic arguments that whitewash the complex problems that come along with being Black in America."
