Trump supporter asks where’s the ‘sea of reporters’ as he describes brutal attack over MAGA hat

A left-wing thug reportedly shattered a MAGA-hat-wearing Trump supporter’s ankle in four pieces during an altercation earlier this month in Tucson, Arizona.

The victim, Jonathan Sparks, claims that while canvassing downtown Tucson sometime prior to the midterm elections to urge locals to vote for Republicans, someone attacked him from behind.

“I felt a very strong grasp on my hat and it pulled me back and grabbed a lot of hair,” he told local station KVOA. “The assailant had jumped onto my ankle from behind, and so I — not knowing yet that my ankle was broken into four pieces — turned around to grab and take the hat back.”

According to Sparks, as his hands latched onto his hat, the two fell to the ground and the attack continued: “Then I heard the words Hitler, Nazi and Trump. He was shouting things like that. He came over the top of me and over and over again, he hit me,” he said.

Bystanders promptly rushed to Sparks’ defense, pulling the assailant off him and holding him down until the authorities arrived. The unnamed assistant was when arrested for assault.

Sparks meanwhile was forced to undergo surgery for his broken angle and spend an additional 20 hours at a local hospital recovering from the devastating attack.

While KVOA didn’t cite a motive for the attack, Sparks blamed it on politics.

“I was making a statement that I personally believe that Donald Trump is a fantastic president of the United States, and I think intolerance to those ideologies was the flame,” he said.

He went on to ding the media for ignoring his assault, arguing that they’d be covering it in detail if he were a gay or black man versus a white Trump supporter.

“I think there would be a sea of reporters here,” he said.

As of Thursday, not a single mainstream media outlet in the United States had reported on the assault, as noted by quite a few exasperated Trump supporters on social media.

Look:

Some social media users blamed the assault on the media’s constant fear-mongering and veritable hate speech vis-a-vis the president and his supporters.

After the president announced plans last year to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, for instance, the media began spinning doomsday scenarios, warning of impending terrorism.

“[T]he mainstream media and the constant fear-mongers on the Left are screaming how Trump is risking violence and terrorism by moving our embassy to Jerusalem,” One America News Network’s Liz Wheeler noted at the time.

“That is purposely biased headlining, and shame on the mainstream media for blaming Trump instead of saying what’s accurate. What’s accurate is that radical Islamist terrorists and anti-Semitic Muslim nations in the Middle East are threatening violence; they’re threatening terror, and President Trump is not allowing evil to dictate his moves or stop him from doing the right thing.”

The media later falsely blamed a mass shooting at a synagogue on the president, telling their audience that he — the most pro-Jewish president in U.S. history — was responsible for a rise in antisemitism.

No matter what happens, the media always seem to resort to blaming Trump. Except of course when either members of the Trump administration or the president’s supporters wind up being harassed or assaulted. Then the media either excuse the behavior or, like in the case of Sparks, ignore it altogether.

Despite all the glaring hypocrisy, double standards and — some would argue — evil of the left, Sparks remains grateful.

“I was attacked with vengeance by an evil man but you know what I learned, you know what God taught me through the whole thing? How wonderful Tucson is,” he said.

“There were people who pulled him off, paramedics who stayed with me there is a police officer that protected me.”
