The media claims that President Trump is inciting violence against journalists. But nobody is running over reporters. Meanwhile the media’s demonization of Trump supporters is leading to acts of violence like these.
A driver rammed by a car believes he was targeted because he had a President Trump bumper sticker on his SUV. A woman from Taunton is facing charges.
“I could hear her screaming out of the car or something, so I thought man maybe something’s wrong with my car,” said the man who did not want to be identified. “I get out, all of a sudden I hear, ‘You’re racist,’ and a bunch of cuss words.”
Police say the attacker is 25-year-old Chloe Wright of Taunton.
The victim recorded the incident as she first allegedly drove into the back of his car, then clipped his door, missing him by inches. “Her tire was right next to my foot,” he said. “That could have ended really bad.”
The incident happened on North Street in Hyannis, but he says it started earlier when she was honking and yelling at him. “The first thing she said when I came out of the car was ‘Did you vote for Trump?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, what of it.’ And that was pretty much what triggered this, it was like nonstop,” he said.
There’s also an NRA sticker on his car. So that’s twice the triggering. But the troubling question is to what degree was this attack, and other attacks, like James Hodgkinson opening fire at a Republican charity baseball practice, incited by the media?
