There’s no hiding it anymore, and there certainly isn’t any way to beat around the bush any longer: The left is out for blood, and they’re openly targeting American conservatives for violence and hatred.
It’s despicable. It’s vile. It’s un-American. But, even through this temporary, figurative damnation, there is a teachable moment coming. We will soon learn just what modern Americans are made of when compared nearly directly to our forefathers. We are facing tough times ahead, make no mistake about it, but we are Americans, and we will be okay. For now, we must all work a little extra hard to make sure that we aren’t exacerbating the most orbital fringes of the political machine…something that the mainstream media and their leftist lap dogs have little interest in.
Just yesterday we witnessed an incident of total hatred play out in a fast food chain – the most ordinary of settings – as a crazed liberal 20-something confronted a teenager wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. The older still-young man then stole the teen’s hat, and was finally arrested this afternoon.
Now, a horrifying story is emerging in Florida in which the stakes were far higher for all of those involved.
A Florida man said he was punched in the face and dragged 30 feet with his arm trapped in a car by a man who was angry over the fact he had a Trump flag in his front yard.
The incident occurred in Boynton Beach on July 4th as Jeff Good watched a fireworks display from his driveway at around 9:30pm.
An older man with gray hair and his female companion drove up and began yelling about President Trump and demanding Good remove the Trump flag from his yard.
When Good refused, the man allegedly punched him in the face. Good tried to punch back, but the man immediately drove off with Good’s arm still trapped in the car.
Good says he was dragged for about 30 feet and showed local news channel WPTV the bruises to prove it.
Still, his spirit was unshaken.
“My political goal here is just to express my love for this president and for somebody to punch you in the face for just presenting the flag to the public, that is enough said right there,” said Good, adding that he thought he was lucky to get away with minor injuries.
This uncouth escalation in political violence in recent days is absolutely deplorable, in whatever sense of the word you or Hillary Clinton can come up with. We are facing a dilemma of divisiveness and denigration the likes of which few people still blinking today can recall. If we don’t immediately look to our past to see the solutions, we are doomed beyond all doubt.
