The very day after Donald Trump won the presidential election, a video emerged of a white man in Chicago being dragged out of his car and brutally beaten by a group of people screaming that he was a Trump voter.
The incident started with a fender bender between a white man, David Wilcox (49) and an African-American woman on the West Side of Chicago. The man and woman pulled over, he exited his car and asked her if she had insurance when two men came from behind and started beating him.
A video of this incident quickly went viral, and a witness can be heard yelling “You voted Trump?” and “beat his a**!”
While they were beating this man they also shouted “Don’t vote Trump!”
Police were looking for the teens in the video and treated the case as a carjacking. The victim told the Tribune that he did vote for Trump, but says there’s no way the angry crowd could have known that because he didn’t mention it and neither his car nor clothing had any trump signs.
The aftermath of this attack can be seen in the following video interview with the victim as he describes the beating.
Now, police have apprehended the 4 people involved in this incident as the Chicago Tribune reports:
Four people have been charged after a man was punched and kicked as a crowd yelled, “Don’t vote Trump,” a day after the presidential election, police said.
Julian Christian, 26, of the 2500 block of 14th Avenue in Broadview, Dejuan Collins, 20, of the 9500 block of South Avalon Avenue in Chicago, Rajane Lewis, 21, of the 7800 block of South Euclid Avenue in Chicago, and a 17-year-old girl who is charged as a juvenile, were each charged with one felony count of vehicular hijacking, police said.
A video of the incident went viral and the victim, 49-year-old David Wilcox, acknowledged he supports Donald Trump but said that’s not what started the beating on the West Side.
Justice is being served, in what should have been classified as a hate crime, but the mainstream media only continues to push the narrative that Trump supporters are violent and minorities are “living in fear“. Although I suspect the man who was assaulted in this incident should have been the one on his guard after the election from violent people who wanted to attack him just because they assumed he voted for Donald Trump.
Has there been any calls for peace from our current president Barack Obama, or Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton? Why don’t I see the Democrats pushing for tolerance and understanding, condemning these vicious attacks against Trump supporters?
The answer is, these incidents don’t fit the narrative that they want to push, which is Trump voters are violent racists and minorities are in constant fear after the election.
It seems like anyone who even looks like they supported Donald Trump should be the ones concerned for their safety.
