Infowars’ Owen Shroyer, #WalkAway Movement founder Brandon Straka, and Daily Wire‘s Michael Knowles were all attacked yesterday for being conservative in public.
Yesterday marked a dark day for political violence in the United States as three prominent conservatives were all physically attacked within hours of each other.
Shroyer, host of “War Room” on Infowars, was the first to be attacked. While filming at a pro-abortion event in Texas, a drag queen appeared to hit him, raised his middle finger, and told Shroyer to “f*ck off.”
“Hey weren’t you at the drag queen story hour?” Shroyer asked, seconds before the enraged man in a dress and makeup appeared to hit him and attempt to swat the camera out of his hand.
“Get that sh*t out of my face motherf*cker, f*ck off, get that camera out of here,” said the angry drag queen. Shroyer, undeterred, informed the man that he just assaulted him on camera, and continued to live stream the event.

However, the event seemed to set the stage for the rest of the day.
Mere minutes later, Straka would upload a video to Twitter of a woman, apparently a model, grabbing for his hat and hitting his head.
She had approached the #WalkAway founder to ask about his Make America Great Again hat, and when he informed her he was not wearing the hat ironically, she pronounced him “a racist” and declared that President Donald J. Trump is a racist too.
At this point, Straka began recording the incident on his cell phone just in time to have the woman appear to physically grab at his hat and face two times.
At the airport w my MAGA hat on. This girl approached me 2 tell me I should be embarrassed. She said I’m a racist & POTUS is a racist. When I repeatedly asked why she replied, “He just is. He just is”. So I began recording & grabbed me twice. Shall we make this model very famous? pic.twitter.com/TdPhwJQcXs

Turning the other cheek, Straka and his team later discovered the woman’s mother was recently ill and she had created a GoFundMe on her behalf. Straka encouraged users to show kindness to the angry woman.
Later in the day, Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles was attacked while delivering a speech at University of Missouri-Kansas City.
In the middle of his speech, a student approached Knowles and sprayed him with a chemical initially believed to be bleach. This led to the student being tackled by police and arrested.
American political discourse seems to be reaching a new low with this level of political violence from the left. As Shroyer pointed out on Twitter, the right does not “have to Smollett,” as there are now plenty of real crimes committed against right wingers daily.
Naturally, the mainstream corporate media is characteristically silent when it comes to these politically motivated crimes.
This is now the third documented on film hate crime TODAY against Trump supporters. Myself, @usminority and now this. We don't have to Smollett. Will television news cover any one of them? Doubt it. https://t.co/maiEYX5Tlw

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
