Man Deliberately Crashes Van Into GOP Voter Registration Tent, Targeting Trump Campaign Volunteers
https://pjmedia.com/electio...campaign-volunteers/

Law enforcement officials in Jacksonville, Fla., say a driver intentionally crashed a van into a tent where Trump campaign volunteers were registering voters Saturday afternoon.
Thankfully, no one was injured.

“We are investigating this as an aggravated assault,” Lt. Larry Gayle of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said. “Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt.”
According to Gayle, after plowing through the tent, the driver stopped, got out of the van, then took a video of the scene before flipping off the victims and fleeing the scene. Despite this, Gayle says they don't know the motivation of the suspect, "but, we are just starting the investigation."
Obviously they don't want to speculate, but the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office should be treating this incident as a potential hate crime—just as they most certainly would be if the victims were minorities and the suspect was Caucasian.

The Duval County GOP posted images of the scene and detailed the incident on Twitter.

“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced.”
Black added, “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.”
The Duval County GOP now plans to "redouble its efforts to register voters" and will continue with "renewed intensity to re-elect President Donald Trump."
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel responded to the incident on Twitter. “These unprovoked, senseless attacks on @realDonaldTrump’s supporters need to end. I want to echo the @DuvalGOP in saying: We will not be silenced by cowards, and these disgusting acts will only make us work harder to win November.”

President Trump also responded to the incident. “Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with!” he wrote on Twitter.

Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio both responded to the incident as well.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is now looking into whether the driver of the vehicle has posted the video he took on social media.
Anyone with information can contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or email their tip line at JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. Anonymous tips can be made by calling Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-TIPS.
Given the obvious political nature of this incident that targeted supporters of President Trump's campaign, every single Democratic candidate's campaign should condemn the actions of the suspect. I'd be willing to bet that none will.

UPDATE: The driver of the van has been identified and arrested.

Curious as why this didn't make the national news media...………

I guess he was intent on registering his displeasure.



He has that "hitler's youth" look to him.

Ban vans.

You should know how I feel about this by now. The left keeps on pushing...

It is odd that it's not in the news. :/

"Every single Democratic candidate's campaign should condemn the actions of the suspect ..."
~ Matt Margolis for PJ Media.




No. No. No.

It would be appropriate for Democrats at the level of Duval County (FL) to get onboard with the statement from Duval County GOP (it's part of the PJ Media report.)

It would be appropriate (I guess) for Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez to go public and match the statement from Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel (also in the PJ Media report.)

Matt Margolis of PJ Media was hyperventilating when he said "Every single Democratic candidate ..." He needs to calm down. That statement from Matt Margolis is transparently partisan political baloney.

Any reaction to a member of your political party using a vehicle to attack? Bueller?

Heck, let us hear from our ray b? Patrick? Newf? Yes Newf (he lurkes ). Dobey? Any word from pantifa? A never ending barrage of hate, violence, and hurt feelings from the lot of ya. Can we get a black wallah?

Stop defending yourselves, and get right.

Where do you get off calling him a member of the Democratic Party (at any level)..? Has that been established yet? He could well be registered for voting purposes as a Democrat. Maybe he's donated to one of the Democratic campaigns, or gone to a Democratic rally or "town hall" of some kind.

That doesn't put him inside the Democratic Party.

You're jumping the gun when you refer to him as a member of ANY group or political party. Unless you are looking at reporting that goes beyond that report in PJ Media.

It's kind of comic (really) when Tony Kania or anyone else takes the approach of "Where are the Democratic Party-friendly forum members on this topic? Why aren't they stepping up to their keyboards or touchscreens and joining this conversation?"

When you make a habit of playing "Tonto" to the "Lone Ranger" of insolence and disrespect for those kind of forum members, it tends to change them from currently active forum members to formerly active forum members.

Because you don't like it when we say "leftist". How about we just call him an "undocumented driver"?
