As students walked out of their classes in Rockville, Maryland, on Wednesday while ironically chanting “love trumps hate,” a 15-year-old student who supports the president-elect was viciously attacked by a mob of protesters.
Hundreds of students from Richard Montgomery High School left classes around 10:00 AM. The media was quick to describe the protest as “peaceful” — despite the fact that a student was taken away in an ambulance 15 minutes after it began.

The victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat when he was surrounded by at least four students who threw him to the ground and began punching and kicking him.
“They jumped him and beat him up pretty bad,” Max Stucky, a bystander who witnessed the attack, told local station WTOP.
The station reported that the student is not seriously injured, but he was taken to the hospital while clutching his head in pain.
None of the anti-Trump bullies have been arrested, but the police are still speaking to witnesses.
@cbgbmd Hello. Rockville City Police officers are handling this incident. Thank you.

It is important to note that the dictionary definition of terrorism is “the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.”
Appearing on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Trump was made to condemn any of his supporters who may have used hateful speech — yet nobody has taken our current president to task over the violence towards supporters of the president-elect at the hands of angry Democrats.
In Portland, rioters have repeatedly violently attacked members of the press — and warned those in attendance against filming the demonstrations.
An 11-year-old student was attacked in school and left on crutches for voting Trump in the school’s mock election.

In California, Jade Armenio, a sophomore at Woodside High School, was violently attacked over posting her support for Trump on Instagram.
These are just a few examples of the increasing violence we are seeing against anyone, including children, who dare to support our future president. Meanwhile, the media is continuing to portray Trump supporters as hateful racists and the protesters as “peaceful” — fueling the fire.
The blame for this bullying and violence is firmly on the media and our Democratic elected officials who are refusing to condemn it.
