Stop the H8: 5 Recent Examples of Anti-Trump Violence
While the media obsesses over a number of allegations of hate crimes supposedly perpetrated by Trump supporters, several well-documented cases of assaults on Trump supporters by unhinged lefties on the streets of American cities are being ignored.
During a "60 Minutes" interview yesterday, President-elect Donald Trump was asked if he had a message for people engaging in hate crimes against minorities since he won the election last week. The subtext being, "call off your racist, sexist, homophobic dogs, Mr. McTrumpHitler."
Trump said: “I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, ‘Stop it.’ If it-- if it helps. I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: ‘Stop it.’"
I don't remember anyone in the media ever asking President Obama to comment on the questionable behavior of any of the left-wing agitators who supported his agenda these past eight years. No one ever called on Obama to denounce the violent union goons who protested Scott Walker in Wisconsin, or the Occupy Wall Street yippies who stunk up public spaces all across the nation, or the Black Lives Matter thugs who instigated riots in a number of cities including Ferguson, Baltimore, and Milwaukee. Heck, they're not even asking him about the Soros-funded anti-Trump riots that are going on RIGHT NOW. They had a chance to ask about the violent anti-Trump riots at the press conference today, and they blew it.
But the same media that just suffered a humiliating rebuke at the polls last week can't stop themselves from pushing stories that are either minor in comparison (some middle school kids -- perhaps jokingly -- yelled "White Power!" in the hallway?) or are unproven and may well turn out to be hoaxes -- as so many SJW hate crime allegations turn out to be.
At the same time, the lib-media is largely ignoring the actual beatdowns Trump supporters are suffering at the hands of their "peaceful" fellow travelers. Sure, local news outlets dutifully report each individual incident, but the MSM refuses to link them all together because the narrative that would emerge would be entirely unhelpful to the progressive agenda.
1. In New York last Thursday, an "anti-bullying ambassador" was arrested after pushing a 74-year-old Trump supporter to the ground.
A female anti-bullying ambassador and gospel singer was arrested on Thursday night for pushing an elderly man to the ground in a fight outside Trump Tower in Manhattan.
Shacara McLaurin, 23, from Brooklyn, New York, joined angry protesters outside the President-elect's New York City home in the second night of uproar since his election win.
The Black Lives Matter protester was arrested at 10.45pm for shoving the man, 74, to the ground, causing him to hit the back of his head on the sidewalk.
2. A man was beaten in Meriden, Connecticut, on Saturday for holding up a pro-Trump sign:
Two men were arrested after they allegedly attacked a man who was waving an American flag and holding a Trump election sign, police said.
According to Meriden police, the victim was standing on the traffic island at the intersection of Hanover Street and Colony Street around noon Saturday when the assault occurred.

Police said the two male suspects stopped their car, got out of the vehicle, and began punching and kicking the man, forcing the victim into the street. Meriden Police Lt. Lawrence Guidobono, who was parked nearby and witnessed the incident, stepped in to stop the attack.
3. A California high school student was beaten for supporting Trump:
Viewer discretion advised for disturbing violence toward a minor:
Jade Armenio, a student at Woodside High School in California, was physically assaulted because … she supported Donald Trump for president.
Jade said she was approached by a student who told her that “you support Trump, you hate Mexicans.”
According to KRON-4 Armenio responded “I said no I do not and she said I wanna do it and I said you want to do what? And she threw me to the floor, pulled out my hair, ripped out my earrings, kicked me inside of the head, kicked me in the stomach, punched me in the nose.”
Jade’s mother said her daughter’s “got Mexican friends […] she’s got black friends.”
“We’re not racist and have never been racist and nobody, nobody should beat somebody up because of that. So if that’s her reasoning, I’m appalled.”
A viral video shows an altercation on the West Side of Chicago that started out as a fender-bender, but escalated into a sickening episode of racial and political violence as the attackers pummeled the poor man, and taunted him for voting for Trump.
David Wilcox, 49, said when he got out of the car to exchange insurance after his car got side swiped, "the African American at the bus stop said, 'yeah, that's one of those white boy Trump supporters.' And I said, what does that have to do with this accident? I just want to exchange insurance." He continued, "the next thing I know, the guy said, 'don't worry about it because we're going to beat his ass.' And then punches were thrown. And the next thing I know, I have five people on me, I fell to the ground, I was kicked in the head ... They were in my car stealing all my stuff ... I tried going to the car, I got hit some more," he said.
According to Democratic strategist Symone Sanders, Wilcox apparently deserved what he got because he's white. Sanders mocked and dismissed the beaten Trump supporter on CNN Monday. In a discussion about alleged pro-Trump violence, Republican Carl Higbie noted that there is violence on both sides.
“What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?” asked Higbie.
“Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please!” Sanders responded. “Oh my– stop. Stop, Carl.”
“That’s not protesting!” Higbie said. “Dragging someone out of their car are beating them is not protesting.”
Sanders didn’t seem so sure of that. “There has never been an acceptable form of protest…” she responded. “We can’t call for people to be peaceful when the rhetoric that has been used is not peaceful, when people don’t feel peaceful in their home.”
Thanks for giving us that glimpse into the progressive mind, Symone. It was very enlightening.
5. This snowflake was arrested for throwing water on Trump supporters. But SHE'S the victim:
So there you go, MSM: five proven, documented examples of lefties attacking Trump supporters -- all wrapped up and tied with a bow.
As a bonus, here's a report about anti-Trump graffiti sweeping the nation:
Anti-Trump graffiti reading “Fucc Trump” was spotted on Friday on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles. It was only one of dozens of incidents of vandalism sweeping the nation in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory last Tuesday.
The vandalism is also appearing on private properties:
Two homes were recently vandalized in Hillsborough County, Florida.
Two homes near the Lakewood Crest subdivision were vandalized with anti-Donald Trump messages overnight Monday.
A small fire to a trailer was also reported on the property located at Williams Road and Bryan Road as well.
The spray painted messages read "F*** Trump," "Burn Everything" and "BLM," which ostensibly refers to the Black Lives Matters group.
A neighbor told 10News reporter Sarah Hollenbeck that "The hate has to stop right now."
Agreed. The left needs to stop the H8 right now, and the media needs to stop covering it up.
