Man in MAGA hat assaulted in downtown Tucson
TUCSON – November 14. 2018
Jonathan Sparks is passionate about his political beliefs, but he said those beliefs were attacked as he was walking around Tucson.
While walking around downtown, a man attacked him from behind. He grabbed Sparks from behind and tried to tear off his hat. People nearby ran over and pulled the attacker off of Sparks. They held him down until police arrived. Tucson Police Department said the man was arrested for assault.
The attack cost Sparks a broken ankle in four places and a twenty-hour hospitalization. He is now recovering from surgery.
“I was making a statement that I personally believe that Donald Trump is a fantastic president of the United States,” Sparks said. “I think that intolerance to his ideology was the flame.”
Meanwhile the FBI provided "alarming" statistics on the overall increase in the number of hate crimes, that spiked by nearly 17% last year . Emphasis was placed on the increasing number of cases of anti-Semitism, while remaining silent on specific examples for obvious reasons.
It's easy to connect the dots and realize that the spike in hate crimes is not about the "racist taking over the White House" but it’s something else—for example, the bias of those involved in the collection and subsequent interpretation of statistics, thereby fuelling anti-Trump hysteria. And it all ends with violence.
By the way, the mainstream media wrote nothing about this case.
