It seems like political tensions in the United States are at all time highs. As such, any time there is violence in the United States, whether it’s a deranged ‘Bernie Bro’ shooting at Steve Scalise and other republicans or a stalker shooting up the offices of a local newspaper, the leftist media has to find a way to blame it on Donald Trump and his politics.
Recently, a woman was arrested in Los Angeles (not exactly a stronghold for Republican voters) in connection to the brutal beating of a 92-year-old man in Willowbrook, California (near Compton) with a brick. As if by clockwork, Democrats on social media are out blaming President Trump for the brutal attack, even though the full story behind the attack is still unknown. Both this woman’s actions, and the leftist media are evil.
On the Fourth of July, a black woman, later identified as 30-year-old Laquisha Jones, was caught on camera and by eyewitnesses savagely beating a man with a brick near the corner of 118th Street and Central Avenue.
According to an eyewitness account, the elderly man, Adolfo Rodriguez, walked by the woman. For some, this upset the woman, and according to the witness, that’s when things turned ugly.
The witness said that the woman “pushed him and dropped him. She took the block of concrete and hit him in the head many times.”
At some point, Jones enlisted the help of men nearby, who continued to beat the defenseless old man after she claimed that the elderly man had tried to snatch her child from her.
Thankfully, the witness managed to get a picture of Jones, holding a giant slab of concrete, with her little girl, shortly after the assault. The child certainly didn’t look like she had just almost been snatched from her mother’s care.
They also managed to record the aftermath, the damage done to Rodriguez’s aged body.
Last night, the alleged assailant was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and is being held on $200,000 bail.
As for Mr. Rodriguez, he has been released from the hospital to recuperate at home. Detectives still have not uncovered a motive for the assault, nor have they found the concrete slab that the woman used to attack the old man.
The video and pictures, taken by Misbel Borjas, the aforementioned witness, bear out the ferocity of the assault against the man, who is a permanent legal resident of the United States.
While local law enforcement cannot find any motivation behind the assault, Borjas’ account of the incident suggests that it was racially motivated, as the woman continuously yelled “go back to your country” and “go back to Mexico.”
Borjas said that when she tried to videotape more, Laquisha Jones threw the concrete block at her car and tried to hit it.
Sounds like a horrific assault upon an innocent man perpetrated by a person from a majority-black area (Willowbrook). Willowbrook, incidentally, is part of California’s 44th Congressional District, which provided more than 80 percent of its vote for Hillary Clinton.
So it’s odd, to say the least, that leftists on Twitter would say that somehow, this is all Donald Trump’s fault.
However, they did just that, surprising many.
Has-been singer Cher said that this was ‘Trump’s America’ in action. However, seeing as California, as a whole, provided 4.5 million votes more for Clinton than it did for Donald Trump, and that the 44th district in which the assault occurred was even more extreme in its leftist slant, that doesn’t quite seem logical.
Actor Brad Garrett (Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond) also chimed in and suggested that President Trump encouraged such actions. Perhaps he’s hoping that parroting leftist opinions without any evidence will help him land a role that isn’t simply voice-acting in an animated film.
Perez Hilton, famous for his gossip column, complained that it was “Donald Trump’s America” as well.
Many other celebrities used what little fame they had to virtue signal how this assault was all Donald Trump’s fault.
Obviously, there is no evidence that this is the case. The woman lives near Compton, and the only claim made about why she beat him thus far has been her alleged claim to a mob of violent men that the old man tried to snatch her child.
Hopefully, Laquisha Jones gets what she has come to her; years in prison and hopefully being forced to pay for, or at least take legal responsibility for, the money that the Rodriguez family had to spend after her assault.
The family had started a GoFundMe page, with a goal of $15,000. As of this writing, the page was a few dollars shy of $267,000.
That doesn’t mean Jones is off the hook, though, nor should she be. Hopefully, Rodriguez, who appeared to be in great pain in videos by the family, will recover and enjoy a decent quality of life in his twilight years.
