Deranged Man Attempted to Murder Trump Volunteers in Jacksonville
The Conservative Treehouse reported on a recent act of political violence that took place in Duval County, Florida.
The Duval County GOP recounted an incident of a man intentionally ramming his van into a Trump voter registration booth in Jacksonville, Florida.
On the afternoon of January 8, 2020, Duval County GOP volunteers were busy working at a registration tent at a Walmart Supercenter when a young man in his early 20s drove a brown van through the tent.
Volunteers were able to jump out of the way and avoid potentially fatal injury.
Lieutenant Larry Gayle of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters that the driver endangered the lives of the workers and damaged the tent.
The driver stopped the van and got out to take a video of the scene. He then proceeded to “flip off” the victims and flee the scene.
President Donald Trump then tweeted about the incident Saturday night: “Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with!”
A motive hasn’t been established yet for the crime.
“We are investigating this as a aggravated assault,” Gayle remarked. “Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt.”
Gayle said authorities are looking into the incident potentially as an “interruption of the political process.”
“JSO is taking the situation very seriously,” he said.
The Sheriff’s Office was investigating to see if the video was posted on social media or the internet.
According to Gayle, the volunteers were emotionally rattled.
“We don’t know what the suspect’s motivation was, but we are just starting the investigation, Gayle highlighted.
“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black told First Coast News.
“The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights,” Black continued.
Given how radical the Left has become, such incidents are set to become the norm. Their ideology is centered around the imposition of their values on others.
It’s small wonder why many on the Left want law-abiding civilians disarmed. This will allow them to take advantage of dissidents and terrorize them through the state, mobs, or activities that clearly use violence.
