Democracy is supposed to be tough, but it isn’t supposed to be violent. More Trump supporters have been attacked for favoring a political candidate.
In New Jersey a 62-year-old man was beaten with a crowbar in a “Friendly’s” parking lot by a man who didn’t like the Trump shirt the older man was wearing.
The confrontation started in traffic when the assailant noticed a man wearing a Trump shirt and got out and confronted the man. The local police said the attacker “inquired why the man was wearing the shirt, directing profanities at him.”
Cussing at a Trump fan is unacceptable, but better than what the attacker did next.
The man continued to follow the Trump supporter and chased him into a Friendly’s Restaurant parking lot. Now the man jumped out with a crowbar and started attacking the elderly man.
After several hits, the attacker left the scene and police are still looking for him.
The elderly man survived the attack but is in rough shape.
In related news, a Cleveland bar was the site of a disagreement over Trump where another Donald fan was shot for saying Trump would make a good president.
The man was shot in the leg and will survive, but the attack brings to light a discussion that we need to have.
Are these hate crimes? What else can you call it?
Many people hate Trump and as an extension, they hate the people that are supporting him. In both of the above mentioned attacks, the men were white.
The irony is, the liberals and the left are the ones that say they stand for tolerance and acceptance are the ones that are that can’t accept a different opinion.
They are only tolerant towards those they share the same beliefs. There is no word on if the DOJ will look into these incidents as hate crimes, but nobody is holding their breath. They are too busy covering for Hillary Clinton.
