In a week where thousands of baseball fans disgraced themselves by loudly booing the President of the United States at Game 5 of the World Series, a pair of Florida cretins went even further, actually assaulting supporters of Donald Trump. Naturally, you won’t read about these regrettable incidents in the Washington Post or the New York Times, outlets only too happy to give front-page attention to any poor victim who is so much as looked at the wrong way by a Republican. No, it seems that assaulting Trump supporters and trashing the president amounts to our new national pastime, and the media couldn’t be happier to ignore it.
Our first disgusting Florida case comes to us from Vero Beach, where a 67-year-old man named Robert Youngblood was quietly enjoying a beer at a local bar. But because Youngblood had the temerity to be wearing a MAGA cap at the time, Matthias Aiple could not let this injustice go unanswered. Aiple, 43, walked up to Youngblood from behind, slapped the bill of his hat, and yelled at him to “go back to Russia, you f**king communist.” He then spit on the surprised Youngblood and left the bar.
Leftist morons calling Trump supporters “communists” means we have hit peak stupidity in America, but we digress.
The attacking doofus, while being arrested later, told police that he didn’t care about going to jail because it was “exciting” and he has “more time in this earth” than his victim.
Well, keep acting like that, and you might find out otherwise.
Let’s move on to our second Florida story, this one out of Naples. It was there that an unidentified man was wearing a Donald Trump costume at a haunted house exhibit. Minding his own business, the man was punched in the face by a 14-year-old girl, who laughed and ran back to her friends in the line. The man confronted her, asked her why she hit him, and then went looking for police.
According to the Naples Daily News, Collier County Sheriff’s deputies determined that the girl’s “sole motivation was to strike ‘Trump.’”
She’s looking at a misdemeanor charge of battery.
Keeping in mind that these two incidents come only weeks after the media essentially blacked out coverage of Trump supporters being violently assaulted outside a Minneapolis rally, and you can start to see what’s going on here.
Antifa? A small problem, barely worth mentioning. The Proud Boys? Basically the Third Reich, the Mafia, and Attila’s barbarians, all rolled into one group.
An idiot protester gets punched at a Trump rally? It’s played on a continuous loop on MSNBC. An independent journalist gets put in the hospital by black-clad socialist goons? Nothing to see here, move along.
You can conclude one of two things: Either the media sees Trump supporters as some type of subhuman creatures deserving of assault, or they desperately want to ignore their possible role in inciting this violence.
Maybe it’s some combination of the two.
