A 92-year-old World War II veteran was blessed by a police officer who went above and beyond after responding to a theft call.
Louis C. Hicks, from Austin, Texas was using the stove in his house to keep warm. After calling the police to report tools being stolen from his shed, Officer Chastity Salazar of the Austin Police Department noticed the unsafe conditions Hicks was living in.
Officer Salazar along with some of her coworkers, came together and bought Hicks a heater for his house, according to Liftable. Not stopping there, the team then had an electric fireplace installed in the house. Another helper, Officer Bino Cadenas, visited Hicks often and found out more things the veteran “wished he could have” – including shirts, underwear, chips and peanuts.

After an officer with @Austin_Police noticed a World War II veteran was heating his home with a gas stove and oven, she found help from local organizations to help donate a heater. #Austin #ATX #WWII #Veteran #Texas
Not one to ask for anything, Hicks was overwhelmed with gratitude at the kind donations, KVUE reported.
“I’ve never had no one to do nothing for me,” an emotional Hicks said. “After my mother passed away and left me to take care of my two sisters — nobody never did nothing to help me.”
“You hate to ask anybody ’cause sometimes they’ll frown on you, and I’m a true veteran,” Hicks said. “I won’t ask. I won’t ask.”
In the heartwarming story, the veteran finished out his interview stating, “God is good”. Hicks is still taking donations; his “wish list” and how to donate can be found here.
How sweet is this?! @Austin_Police is delivering a free heater to a 92-year-old World War II veteran! An officer who responded to his house last week noticed he was heating it with his stove and oven. Thanks to these officers, he won’t need to do that anymore. 😊 @KVUE pic.twitter.com/rCvwclXuVW

Mumford & Sons Guitarist Swarmed by Fanatic Leftists After Praising Andy Ngo’s Book
Musicians are terrified to speak out against fanatic leftism.
Folk rock musician Winston Marshall was swarmed by furious leftists after congratulating journalist Andy Ngo on the publication of his new book, “Unmasked.” Ngo’s book breaks down Antifa’s model of attacking democracy and political violence in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, shining light on the street terror group’s extremism.
Marshall, the lead guitarist of Mumford & Sons, hailed Ngo as a “brave man” in a since-deleted tweet.
Antifa supporters were quick to attack the musician as a “Nazi,” unleashing the hate-filled vitriol commonly associated with the intolerant movement. Marshall’s Twitter feed is largely filled with support for Hong Kong demonstrators, a far cry from what leftists might expect from a “fascist.” The English guitar player’s band is known for songs such as “I Will Wait” and “Hopeless Wanderer.”

Others pointed to the faux social media outrage as mere evidence of the Left’s intolerance and fanaticism.
Congratulations to @MrWinMarshall for showing us, once again, that the people who claim to be "tolerant", "kind" and "open-minded" are the most illiberal, hateful and intolerant around. I'll be going to as many of his concerts as possible.

Ngo has been forced to flee the United States under a constant barrage of Antifa threats in recent months, with the street terror group determined to silence Ngo’s reporting on consistent property damage, anarcho-tyranny, and violent crime in Portland and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, Marshall has since deleted the tweet. It’s considered impossible to get anywhere in the mainstream music industry if you haven’t cravenly bowed before the false gods of ultraliberalism and identity leftism. While Marshall took a risk in even saluting Ngo’s work in the first place, he unfortunately appears to have backed down, to a degree, a sad lamentation of the state of mainstream entertainment and corporate culture.
