Sixty-eight-year-old Charlie Daniels, a Vietnam vet, was brutally attacked for saying he was voting for Donald Trump. The attack took place at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida. The incident began innocently enough when the cashier at the gas station asked Daniels who he was voting for in the November election. When Daniels said that he would cast his vote for Donald Trump, a six-foot-tall, 200+ pound, African-American standing behind him got very upset. He began using racial slurs and cursed Daniels before leaving the store.
When Daniels exited, he found the angry African-American waiting for him outside. Daniels told the man he didn’t want any trouble, but the thug continued to swear and insult Daniels. The thug then attacked Daniels. The whole thing was recorded on video. Although police haven’t found the attacker, Daniels wants him charged with a hate crime because of the racist things that his attacker was saying while he was beating him.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
A 68-year-old Vietnam veteran was savagely beaten this Sunday after he dared to share his support for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida.
According to local news station WJXT, the incident began when, while waiting in line inside the gas station, the veteran, Charlie Daniels, was asked by the cashier whom he intended to vote for in the November election.
When he replied, “Trump,” the 6-foot-tall+, 210-pound+ black man standing behind him suddenly grew irate and began spewing racial slurs and expletives, until at last the infuriated goon exited the store. When Daniels finished purchasing gas and stepped outside, however, he found the thug waiting for him.
