This case starkly shows how hollow the left's professed concern about racial and political intolerance are. While they pounce at every opportunity to deride conservatives as narrow-minded and dismissive of people with other opinions or backgrounds, liberals are silent about this clear example of an inconsiderate thug attacking someone, an elderly vet no less, for not having the same beliefs or skin-color as them:
“He said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you.’ I said, ‘Partner, I don’t want to talk to nobody. Look, that stuff is over with. I was just voicing an opinion. So were you,’ and I said, ‘Come on, let me get some gas,'” Daniels said. “He reached over, grabbed me by (the) arm, turned me around and came down with his left hand. (He) knocked me down, and when I hit the ground, he said, ‘What do you think about Trump now you white mother (expletive).’ And then he started kicking me.”
Daniels told the attacker he was a Vietnam veteran, to which he responded, “I don’t give a f**k about you being a vet.”
Daniels said he wanted the culprit to go to jail and that the attack was obviously a hate crime.
“I don’t see why it’s not a hate crime with all the words he was saying. It was all about me being a white man and supporting Trump. If that’s not hate, then I don’t know what is.”
Although the assault was captured on the store’s surveillance camera, police have not released it to the media.
“This story needs to go viral and the video of his assault must be released to the public. The reality of the persecution Trump supporters are facing must be shown for all to see,” comments Chris Menahan.
If the roles were reversed and an elderly black Hillary Clinton supporter had been physically attacked by a racist white Trump supporter, the story would be getting national attention.
However, the media has consistently buried reports about Trump supporters being harassed because it contradicts the narrative that his voters are aggressive, low intelligence racists.
