A large group of teens brutally assaulted a New York City art gallery owner on Tuesday evening for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
The victim, Jahangir “John” Turan told Fox 5 NY he had purchased
the signature red MAGA hat from Trump Tower just moments before he was brutally
beaten by a mob of 15 “kids.”
The group “flipped” his hat onto the street, yelled “Fuck Trump,” slugged him in the face, shoved him to the ground and stomped him, before one of the attackers bulldozed his head into a scaffold, Turan explained.
Fortunately, Turan was able to escape the beat down and seek
assistance from law enforcement officers.
“It all happened within 10 seconds,” he said. “I jumped out,
crossed the street and called the police.”
When police arrived on the scene, the group continued to
shout anti-Trump sentiments, NBC New York reports,
but the police did nothing.
Turan suffered a severe left eye injury after the assault, bruises and a fracture in his cheek. He is awaiting results from an eyes specialist on whether there has been permanent damage to his sight.
“I love President Trump. I think he’s doing a great job,” Turan
“It’s sad to get beat
up for wearing this hat. This is America.”
According to police, Turna refused medical attention after
the assault. There is no reported information on the alleged perpetrators.
Trump supporters have been the victims of hundreds of targeted attacks, brutal violence and hate crimes since the final days of the Obama administration. Meanwhile, fake news media outlets promote the notion that violent left-wingers use their violence against conservatives to bring about peace
Most notably, in 2017, four Chicago gangstas were charged with hate crimes for kidnapping and beating a mentally disabled white student and live streaming video on Facebook forcing the victim to repeat anti-Trump taunts.
Months later, Congressmen Steve Scalise and five others shot by rabid anti-Trump activist and former Bernie Sanders volunteer James Hodgkinson prior to a congressional charitable event. Hodgkinson had a list of names of the Republican lawmakers he wanted to murder.
Just three days before the shooting, Huffington Post published an article calling for Trump to be prosecuted and executed, arguing impeaching the president was not enough.
In July, independent journalist Andy Ngo suffered a brain hemorrhage after getting brutally beaten in Portland, Oregon by members of Antifa who doused him in quick-drying, cement-laced milkshakes.
Two weeks later, this reporter was bombarded and threatened by an Antifa drag queen mob during a “Demand Free Speech” rally in Washington, DC and police refused to intervene.
As of July 2018, there were 639 “Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters,” Breitbart News reports.
