Elderly Tennessee Man Attacked at Garage Sale For Being a Trump Supporter

Trump Hat MAGA

Have you noticed a pattern of political violence in this election? Every time someone is physically attacked over their political views, it’s a Trump supporter and the media ignores it time and time again.

In this case, a 68 year old man was assaulted for having a Trump pin on his hat.

The Daily Caller reported:

EXCLUSIVE: Tennessee Man Attacked At Garage Sale For Being Trump Supporter

A man allegedly attacked a 68-year-old cancer survivor at a garage sale in Tennessee, punching him in the jaw and dislodging a tooth because the older man was a Trump supporter.

Vester Bullock of Oak Ridge, Tenn., said in an exclusive phone interview with The Daily Caller he believes he was targeted because of his political views.

Bullock, who wears a big red Trump pin on his hat, said he was helping out at his friend’s garage sale Saturday morning when a man showed up early and offered him $5 for a staple gun that was marked for sale for $7.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., according to Bullock, the man returned extremely agitated and starting shouting profanities at him.

“He slammed his arms, walked up to me and said, ‘my wife told me I shouldn’t trust a God-damn Republican,’” said Bullock.

When he asked the man what was wrong, he said the stapler didn’t work.

“I told him ‘I’ll give you your money back,’” said Bullock. “But he kept calling me all kinds of names.”

The man did not have the stapler with him, but Bullock still tried to give him $5 back. Instead of taking the money, he smacked it from Bullock’s hand and got into his truck.

“When I picked up the money, he jumped out of his truck and sucker-punched me in the jaw,” Bullock said. “Then he said something about getting a gun,” said Bullock.

Bullock was able to get the truck’s license plate number before he sped off and reported the incident to the police. He said the police initially said he would be his word versus his alleged assailant.

If these sorts of attacks were happening to Hillary supporters, it would be on the news every single night but because it’s happening to Trump supporters it’s routinely ignored.
