Nice to see the Obama Youth appreciate the sacrifice and service of America’s veterans. Somehow we doubt and Democrats will be hounded to denounce this black racist movement.
An Iraq war veteran whose bravery inspired two statues says he was beaten by a group of teens in Washington, DC on Friday night after they approached and asked him whether ‘black lives matter’.
Chris Marquez, 30, a decorated US marine, was eating in a McDonald’s when the youths walked up and started questioning him, WJLA reported.
‘I felt threatened and thought they were trying to intimidate me, so I figured I’m just going to keep to my food, eat my food and hopefully they’ll leave me alone,’ Marquez told the station.
The youths started calling him a racist, he said, but it was when he tried to leave the restaurant that things went badly for him.
The soldier, who had survived ambushes in Fallujah at the height of the Iraq War, was taken unaware again — and this time he was unarmed and without backup.
One of the teens hit him in the head him from behind, knocking him to the floor, where the gang beat him savagely before robbing him. Marquez told police that one youth hit him in the head with a handgun.
‘As soon as I walked out of the McDonald’s I got hit in the back of the head, or the side of the head,’ he told WJLA. ‘I just dropped to the ground, and [the McDonald’s manager] says I looked unconscious.’
The veteran believes that the attack was a hate crime, and that he was targeted because he was white.
‘I believe this was a hate crime and I was targeted because of my skin color,’ he told The Daily Caller.
‘Too many of these types of attacks have been happening against white people by members of the black community and the majority of the main stream media refuses to report on it.’
Indeed, and his point will be proven by the “mainstream” media blackout on this story. Maybe if they find out he’s a Democrat:
Politics seems to have been a goal of Marquez’s civilian life. In 2014 he ran as a Democratic candidate for Congress, hoping to represent the 42nd Congressional District of California, according to BallotPedia.
In a YouTube video he described himself as believing in ‘fiscal conservative and social libertarian policies’ and said that a personal issue for him was ‘fixing the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’
His BallotPedia page says that he was in favor of reforming ‘draconian’ drug laws, investing in renewable energy and ‘providing a clear path towards citizenship for law abiding undocumented immigrants.’
