Chicago Torture Not Isolated Incident — Trump Supporters Have Been Violently Attacked All Over The Country
The kidnapping and torture of a white, mentally challenged teen by four African-Americans in Chicago, who shouted “Fuck Donald Trump!” and “Fuck white people!” while torturing their victim, is just the latest incident of violence against Trump supporters — or assumed Trump supporters — since the election.
Just days after the election, a group of black men in Chicago violently attacked a white man while spewing anti-Trump rage, saying “Why would you vote Trump, damn it?” and “You voted Trump?! Damn, he voted Trump!” The beating reportedly started as a traffic incident before escalating into violence.
Anti-Trump violence hasn’t been limited to Chicago.
High school students in Rockville, Maryland physically assaulted a fellow student for supporting Trump. The victim, who was attacked during a “walkout” protest of Trump’s presidency, was punched in the face and kicked while lying on the ground.
A similar incident took place at a California high school, where a black, female student approached a white, Trump-supporting female student and said, “You support Trump. You hate Mexicans” before viciously beating the girl, punching her in the face. Video from local news network KTVU shows the attack:
A female, anti-bullying ambassador tied to Black Lives Matter was arrested after shoving a 65-year-old man to the ground while she was protesting outside Trump Tower in New York, the Daily Mail reported.
A Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat was approached by two men on a New York subway who asked if he supported the president-elect.
When he answered yes, the men reportedly attacked and choked him. He ultimately was able to escape, according to ABC7.
