Have liberals fallen so low that someone would physically assault an elderly gentleman just for exercising his right to free speech?
This is not the same attack as the immigrant (here illegally) who attacked a man in a Mexican Restaurant. This was a completely new assault.
The 81-year-old man was wearing his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, which means he was exercising his simple and basic right to free speech under the constitution, when some deranged lunatic liberal decided that he was an object worthy of assault.
Officials at the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office explained that the victim — an unidentified male from Franklin Township — was at a supermarket just before 3:30 p.m. when he was “assaulted,” said in a news release.
The man was “confronted” about, apparently, being a free citizen in the United States of America, and suffered minor injuries during the incident.
The point is not the severity of the assault, but that people on the left judge it okay to bring physical violence against someone who doesn’t happen to share their warped and twisted views of a global society.
“Local authorities are investigating the alleged attack, which comes less than two weeks after a 23-year-old wearing a MAGA hat at a Mexican restaurant in Cape Cod was allegedly assaulted by a woman. That woman was later detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
And, these sorts of unprovoked assaults are increasing, with little regard for the victim.
Earlier this month, a Vans shoe store employee was fired for allegedly cursing at a 14-year-old customer wearing the signature cap at a store in Kansas.
The NJ police department is investigating the latest incident, but no one seems to care that these victims are being targeted for their “creed.”
Liberals do not honor the rights of others, when those others espouse views contrary to their own beliefs.
“Robertson, Chief of Detectives John W. Fodor and Franklin Township Chief of Police Richard Grammar are requesting that anyone with information contact the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit at 908-231-7100 or the Franklin Township Police Department at 732-873-5533.”
Many people pray that the culprit is brought to justice and that he or she faces serious criminal consequences for attacking an old man.
Others suggest that the media is culpable in the increase of attacks since some ‘commentators’ have argued that expressing the right to free speech in this manner is ‘asking for it.’
Perhaps that’s true… since liberals can’t seem to live in a civilized society.
