The Chicago Tribune tracked down the man who was taunted and brutally attacked by a group of black thugs as onlookers shouted, “You voted Trump,” “Beat his ass” and “Don’t vote Trump.”
A viral video shows an altercation on the West Side of Chicago that started out as a fender-bender, but escalated into a sickening episode of racial and political violence as the attackers pummeled the poor man, and taunted him for voting for Trump.
David Wilcox, 49, said when he got out of the car to exchange insurance after his car got side swiped, “the African American at the bus stop said, ‘yeah, that’s one of those white boy Trump supporters.’ And I said, what does that have to do with this accident? I just want to exchange insurance.” He continued, “the next thing I know, the guy said, ‘don’t worry about it because we’re going to beat his ass.’ And then punches were thrown. And the next thing I know, I have five people on me, I fell to the ground, I was kicked in the head … They were in my car stealing all my stuff … I tried going to the car, I got hit some more,” he said.
Wilcox said he tried to take “a defensive stance to ward them off and hold them back and another guy said ‘Get the car! Get the car!” He said he latched onto a door frame and the guy took off, dragging him down the street at 70 miles an hour.
